The excellence of ADHD and ADD

View the above clip. Between the giggles, you get a ton of inside info.

ADHD is the healthy reaction to attempts to make babies and young children excessively passive so that later, they won’t be rebels objecting to societal injustices demanding change.

The normal pathological reaction to this Western mistreatment and child abuse is becoming overly passive and dull, and that is then called normal and healthy. Once grownups themselves, they’ll be the greatest supporters of child conditioning and oppression and the oppressive society at large.

The solution is to force kids less to fit in and obey and instead listen more to what the young person needs. When you do that, you will see less extreme rebels and less extreme overly passive people who would prefer to sit in front of the telly all day.

To label and pathologize people with ADHD is one of the greatest and most lucrative outrages by the psychiatry and pharmacology money grabbers.

But, when you use tobacco to focus or alcohol to relax, you’re normal–and also great for the oppressive society, because you’ll die early (no need to pay out decades of pensions) and you’ll pay a ton on cigarettes or alcohol (tax revenues), and you’ll be passive, as the Dutch saying goes: a cigar smoker is not a rebel. These drugs also shove anger under the rug.

I so enjoy my ADD side! My mind can go in ten different directions quickly, keeping me from being bored (despite being very smart) and giving me a broad vision of anything that I think about. We may need therapy to learn how to not become paralyzed by all the different impulses. But we all should take up therapy to become our best selves and not hurt others.

The choicest of kids of ADD parents will choose to behave like them. That of course, doesn’t prove genetic causation at all.

Surely, one will find negative life events higher among ADHD people. They feel and show the hurt of being kept too short, are more likely to get in trouble in school, and are more prone to get dependent on addictive stuff. First, you’re kicked and then, you’re blamed for bleeding.

Poisoning kids (chemical brain clipping) to be quieter is real child abuse and a continuation of ignoring what the kid would need. As if kids are here to support the schools, instead of the other way around.

The ADHD wave shows how messed up psychiatry is.

NB: First, ADHD was called ‘Traumatic Brain Injury.’ When they found no such thing, they rebranded it ‘Minimal Brain Damage.’ When they then failed to find any brain damage, they didn’t reject their fake diagnosis but rather renamed it ADHD. There is no integrity in the whole system.

In a rational society, ‘not being an activist’ will be a mental disorder.

People with ADHD do not recover faster from corona

When the nonsense of statistics and the nonsense of mental health meet

Fortunately or unfortunately, silly nonsense reporting is not restricted to the silly season. A new study ‘discovered’ that people with ADHD heal faster from COVID-19. And the media just copy the twaddle.

No study of hyperactive people was done. Rather, it was found that faster recovery from corona coincides with more ADHD in the area.

Now, there is a difference between a statistical and a causal link. One uses statistics to find causal links. It was found that people who had a tiny bit of trans fats in their diets had a significant (but slightly) higher chance of having a heart attack. Then, trans fats were found in the masses that block the arteries that supply oxygen to the heart. The causal link became clear.

Sometimes, a statistical link is studied to see if there is a correlation between, say, hours spent sitting per day and life expectancy.

When a significant correlation is found, that doesn’t prove anything. A mechanism for one causing the other still must be found or clear.

My father used to mention that, when in the Netherlands, the number of storks declined, so did the number of human births. That didn’t prove that storks deliver the babies. It may be coincidental until one finds a system.

Another way to save a lot of research money is to think of a mechanism that has nothing to do with the correlation one studied. In our case, there is an obvious candidate that shows that ADHD does not undo COVID-19.

Hyperactive kids you make by demanding that they sit still too much. Most kids will become docile (a great asset to maintain an unjust society) and some will become hyperactive. The same populations that have higher healthcare also will have more-demanding schools. Money causes both better health and more ADHD. The two do not cause each other.

But this insufferable nonsensical ‘news’ wasn’t just a wild idea in a random brainstorming session. It is in fact worked on by four Israeli academics who published the claptrap. The academic journal that ran this is actually peer-reviewed, covering the field of psychiatry and attention disorders.

But shouldn’t we have wondered years ago if we could expect any quality or truth in psychiatric research? Never forget that this pseudo-science is still deeply rooted in Freud’s fraud to deny endemic early-life sexual abuse.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500th blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry, and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
