Authoritarians will use ANYTHING including willing scientists to impose their regimentation on society. All you Farkers who want to treat religious believers as having a mental disorder can be found to have a "disease"  as well! Authority hate rebellion in any but the proscribed forms.

Sorry for the simulpost. Didn't realize i placed the same quote in two different threads. i know it is very bad form.It won't happen again.

I thought Mozart was quite adept at self-medicating?
 
2014-03-31 12:08:07 PM  
Submitting two threads with different headlines should be cause for being forcibly medicated.

I read this last week. It does have some valid points.
The DSM is an aggressively irresponsible publication and is funded by the pharmaceutical companies. Any halfwit social worker can get a hold of this and 'diagnose'.
Giving a hunting license to the blind is on par with the use of this.
Not subby, but this should be an entertaining thread.

Mozart obviously didn't see the potential for Musak ruining his compositions. Who knew?

If Mozart was born today, it would be his birthday.

Happy birthday!

Oh farking Tumblr.

Looks like somebody doesn't know that Mozart was a Freemason and they weren't admitting black men in Europe at that time.

I just look at the URLs of TFAs. Usually a pretty good synopsis in just a few words. No point reading the bullshiat

Mozart was a child prodigy. He wouldn't have been medicated--he would've been on TLC with Honey Boo Boo.
 
2014-03-31 04:21:09 PM  
So? Mozart wasn't born nowadays, he was born then. What's your point?
 
2014-03-31 04:22:55 PM  
Sorry, but if you don't have ADHD, bi-polar, or aren't somewhere on the autism spectrum, you're just not cool enough for me to hang out with anymore.
 
2014-03-31 04:23:02 PM  
Yes, because it is more important for society to to have Mozart's works than it is for Mozart to have peace of mind and not suffer from sometimes crippling mental illness.

Assholes.

That the music in 2014 sounds just like the music in 1994. New generation has had their creativity drugged out of them.

Well, that;s probably not what it said. But it's what I say

No kidding.  The Moors were of Berber and Arab lineage, neither of which resemble the painting shown.  But the English word "Moors" is derived from a Latin word, which in turn is derived from a Greek word loosely translating to "dark".


God Is My Co-Pirate: I just read someone claiming that the Egyptians reached South America (which is why both cultures had mummies) and that because they were both Peoples of Colour, they were able to have peaceful, non-violent, and enlightened interactions free of white colonialism.


I remember when the discovery of cocaine in Egyptian mummies was a hot topic, since it implied pre-Columbus trade between South America and Africa.

Did anybody READ this acre full of horse manure?!

Here's a huge clue that this is a nug job anti vaccer. This is a direct quote from the article:

"......Now add the insanty of vaccines to the cocktail of big pharma's poisons, never mind the fluoride, GMOs and aluminum and barium laced chemtrail program...."

When anybody mentions chemtrails that is a sure sign they need to pull their thumbs out of their ass and study a science book.

Sigh.

Beforeitsnews began as a nice place to look at alternative news sites and laugh at a lot of strange things. Now, it's a deeply scary site for people with a special type of mental illness where everything "everyone knows" is always wrong and the world is out to get them. Try looking at that site around political campaign times and you begin to wonder how these people continue to function.

Don't Tongue the Reaper!: Mozart was a child prodigy. He wouldn't have been medicated--he would've been on TLC with Honey Boo Boo.


Wolfgang Mozart was a genuinely talented kid who got pushed into giving performances worldwide by overbearing parents, started making short-sighted, self-destructive career moves at age 17, and died in his mid-thirties of what quite possibly may have been venereal disease.

Mozart was, in fact, the Justin Bieber of the 18th century.

uber humper: That the music in 2014 sounds just like the music in 1994. New generation has had their creativity drugged out of them.


Not true.  Existing music genres are still being pushed, with new artists continuing to experiment with music in creative ways.  Problem is:
1) popular music distribution channels are increasingly avoiding progressive and experimental bands in favor of safe mainstream bands
2) progressive and experimental music really has to be extreme to push boundaries, which make them increasingly niche and potentially unpopular
3) younger generations have more media choices than ever, so music may take a back seat to movies and video games

Yeah, and then it was discovered that the South American and Egyptian mummies were stored next to each other in the same German museum.

And anyone who thinks the Egyptians were non-violent is a credulous goober with a lot of history reading to do.

NobleHam: Right, those ADD kids always want to spend hours playing piano.


Actually, if an ADD kid was really into piano, he or she probably would. The trick would be to get them to concentrate on, and be good at, anything else, even if the kid wants to. Attention Deficit Disorder is a really inaccurate name for it. It should've been called Attention Regulatory Disorder.

More like the Michael Jackson, right? The man actually had talent. He was more than a midget Rob Van Winkle with a monkey.

I like this concept better: Neverland Ranch Investigators Discover Corpse Of Real Michael Jackson : "Coroners have officially pronounced Michael Jackson dead. From what we can tell, he died between 18 and 20 years ago," forensic investigator Tim Holbrooke said. "We are not certain, at this time, who-or what-has been standing trial in that Santa Maria courthouse."
