The Genius in People With Disabilities, Mental Health Disorders

From CNN: Differences that are categorized as mental health disorders and learning disabilities are often associated with increased creativity and artistic abilities, more empathy, and the ability to view the world in new, innovative ways. In providing support for children with these conditions, it is important to focus on exploring and enhancing their strengths, not just attending to their weaknesses.

  1. The psychiatrists, psychologists, and school social workers in recent decades have been intentionally attacking the creative geniuses and their children because they get 100% on their state standardized tests. Since the function of today’s “mental health industry” is not to improve “mental health,” but rather to maintain the status quo.

    The current status quo, the self proclaimed globalist “elite,” who the “mental health industry” was miseducated by and works for, wants to quash the greatness within America, apparently to bring about their supposed NWO.

    I agree, the “mental health” industry should stop defaming, drugging, and focusing solely on the splinters in the eyes of the brilliant within our society, while ignoring the logs in their own eyes and theology.

  2. Psychiatry and many other systems are the result of the want of money or prestige. What better job is there than to sit in a cushy office and stare at other humans?
    How utterly monotonous. There cannot be pride in it or the results.

    Nature is always a step ahead of anything that comes from the human brain.
    Getting rid of weeds has not worked in the long run.
    Next up is raking forest floors to prevent forest fires. Or nuking hurricanes.
    The absurdity is man.

  3. Every gene, even the ones determined to be a faulty gene, is only ever considered “faulty”, by
    those who do not own one.
    In this manner, it is not science at all. The only science is the ability or attempt to isolate genes.
    The naming the gene as faulty has no scientific or evolutionary basis and consists of no more information than
    what is inside of the scientist in control.
    Every sane scientist would be/should be sceptical of thinking that his conclusion or assumption is the correct assumption.
    Every sane scientist knows he is delving into an unknown with no finality of perfection in sight and realizes that attempts at manipulation are the very attempts that could result even in whole destruction.
    The scientist knows not how he came into existence. He knows not the “faulty” gene that lies at the bottom of his ability to be destructive.
    The miracle of science allowed us to proliferate. The destruction of mosquitos that cause malaria. The destruction of weeds to allow edible vegetation.
    The drugs to combat illness.
    Perhaps the gene that knows nothing about science and does not have a curious mind, might be the balance we all need.
