Humor: Anti Government Phobia: Study Says Fear of the Government is a Recognizable Mental Illness; Recommends Afflicted be Committed to Mental Institution

A disturbing piece was published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. In it is a study that claims people who are anti-government or believe in conspiracies around the government are suffering from a condition called Anti-Government Phobia (AGP). Meaning that anyone who has a distaste for the government, the way it operates, its polices and believes there is a particular force behind it, must be mentally ill. The implications here are frightening, if you feel the government is doing something that will harm you and that it is a part of a bigger plan, you are sick. Thus the government can respond as though you are a a threat.

This is what the study actually claims:

“This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch “us against them” mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism.”

The study also gave a suggestion on how to deal with someone who is considered to have Anti-Government Phobia:

“Having the patient committed to a qualified mental health institution is the best option for family and loved ones. For this reason, all psychiatrists and family physicians should be provided with educational materials which will help them recognize the various symptoms and warning signs accompanying onset.”

    This is my dad to a T. He is now practically homeless and so obsessed that he can’t function in society and he does not abuse drugs. Please read the article more indepthly. When I read the study I got chills and felt faint because of memories of living with a father who slowly deteriorated. It started with him chasing government spies in our attic when I was a teenager and that turned into religious fatancism and now he is so distrustful of groups or anything official, he cannot hold down a steady job. He has five children so we all help support him but it’s been a daily battle for us. This study gave me some peace and resolution. we’ve been trying to figure out what exactly is wrong with him for 20 years and how it came about so acutely out of nowhere! There are sentences in that study that literally I’ve said out loud when trying to explain to family friends professionals etc. what is wrong with him.

      Anyone who can’t see that our Govt. is corrupt to the core should be committed. What do the Fema Camps, the Body Bags, Executive Orders, Martial Law, Cameras at every damn intersection, Blanketing the sky and the air we breathe with highly toxic chemicals and biological weapons on a global basis, Fake News Events and Staged Shootings, Lies, Lies, Lies, High Treason, Murder, Fraudulent Wars, Selling guns to the Mexican Cartel for drugs, and the fact that Fema has bought up enough ammo to kill every person on earth mean to you?
      If that doesn’t raise the threat level a little, then you are brain dead. The Govt. is not your friend, Al Qaeda is the CIA, the Israelis did 911
      Those are facts and can all be proven. Wake up.

      That is a little extreme, but as far as trusting the government who has repeatedly lied thru their teeth about everything, you would be a fool to do so. They are not on your side. Wake up.

    Good thing it is never unfounded, then. Governments have killed at least 262 million of their own citizens last century. I can name at least 4 out of 197 governments who killed multiple millions off the top of my head. That’s a good 2% right there. Which means that governments statistically and historically ARE the biggest threat to human life, liberty and property. If you’re a medical professional who thinks it’s irrational that people distrust a bunch of men and women who claim to ‘represent’ people by stealing 70% of their income and caging/murdering those people if they don’t comply, it might be YOU who is severely mentally ill.

    Oh good. More propaganda. Just what the world needs. Governments are composed of people, who are, by and large, a mixed bag of tricks. The fact that you see an entity as evil, bespeaks your paranoia. No wonder you use Brietbart as a source of news. Entities can’t be evil. Only people can. And there are very few truly evil people in the world, thank god. They can conspire together to do bad things, but you labeling an entity as evil is a blanket statement that qualifies as clearly false. How about some logic and reason before you write some more of this drivel? Quit the fear-mongering and focus on how to solve the problems of society, instead of using your fears to spread more hatred. You are of the same ilk, which believed Hilary Clinton ran a child sex ring. You’re not a journalist. Not even close. No reputable sources, no interviews and a total disregard for the real facts. The quote you use from the study above is a good quote — which you choose to twist to prove your point. The key words above are “unfounded fears.” Kinda like what that guy had who went to that pizza place because he read that there was a child sex ring in the basement and found out the place didn’t even have a basement! Now, he’s in jail and facing felony charges — because of people like you. People who spread propaganda. The real irony is that you think of yourself as a patriot and an American, when your writing and your beliefs betray the fact that you have no real understanding of what America is about. In fact, your antisocial and authoritarian beliefs are more welcome and used regularly in Russia! Stop disseminating half-truths, lies and disinformation. That is the real evil. The truth sets us free. Truly. But quit trying to pass off your paranoid opinions as truth.
