Obstetrical abuse and circumcision also imprint learned helplessness on the infant. The mechanisms of social control are everywhere, in the religious, economic and (of course) political systems of this country. And it’s certainly not confined to peasants. No one is more enslaved to the system than the “ruling” elite. We are controlled by the systems we create.
Hedges’ terminology confuses the empire, which is just the latest manifestation of the central banking cartel which took over the british empire in the 19th century, with the authentic constitutional american system, which it infiltrated and eventually murdered.
“The United States leads the developed world in child-abuse deaths, according to the organization Every Child Matters. More than 20,000 American children have died over the past decade in their own homes because of family members, with about 75% being under four years of age and nearly half being under one. The U.S. child-maltreatment death rate is three times higher than Canada’s and 11 times that of Italy.
In only 40 years, the US has gone from the world’s biggest industrial superpower with the highest standard of living and one of the highest levels of education to the brink of total societal and economic disaster. This process has been too organized, too systematic to be the result of random corruption. No government could survive the coming mass recognition of what they have done without resorting to terror and police state tactics. Those are just the facts. The federal government is an institutional traitor to the united states. Traitors tend to have trouble surviving, and of course they know this and have planned for it.
All of this strongly implies that on the whole, we are governed by interests which aren’t even based in this country. This is a silent coup, yet another undeclared war.
11 International Agreements That Are Nails In The Coffin Of The Petrodollar
“Someone did perform safety studies the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should have mandated be performed and vetted BEFORE numerous vaccines were released into the public sector for mass vaccinations.
“Lead investigator Laura Hewitson, PhD, probably dropped a bombshell when she and her colleagues completed a macaque monkey (primates) study of the very same vaccines given to children during 1994-1999, i.e., the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and several Thimerosal mercury-containing vaccines injected into children during that time frame when the autism spectrum disorder skyrocketed.
“The results of that pilot study were published as a Research Paper in Acta Neurobiological Experimentals in 2010 and titled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study.”  Even though there was alleged controversy revolving around Hewitson’s monkey studies, e.g., charges of conflicts of interest since she filed a claim with the vaccine court on behalf of her child,  the information generated needs to be revisited and duplicate studies need to be undertaken. Why haven’t they? Is there too much influence from vaccine makers not to do them? Parents need to make demands on the U.S. Congress to require such safety studies on monkeys be duplicated immediately, plus suspend all mandates on vaccinations until the study results are in. Did Dr Hewitson become another professional persona non-grata because she may have been on the right track?
“Congress needs to consider seriously the Hewitson, et al. report that stated:
“Vaccine-exposed and saline-injected control infants [monkeys] underwent MRI and PET imaging at approximately 4 and 6 months of age, representing two specific timeframes within the vaccination schedule. …
“These results suggest that maturational changes in amygdala volume and the binding capacity of [11C]DPN in the amygdala was significantly altered in infant macaques receiving the vaccine schedule.” 
It’s no secret among veterinarians that over-vaccination can cause problems in animals, including autoimmune diseases and cancer. Symptoms of autism, the “regressive” version of which is probably autoimmunity involving chronic brain inflammation and/or mercury poisoning in susceptible children (see my munchausen obstetrics article), have been seen in monkeys subjected to the typical american vaccination schedule for children.

It’s less common these days to hear a psychiatrist admit what is well known in psychiatric circles: that the “chemical imbalance” theory is just that, there is no empirical evidence or chemical test for any “imbalance” of signaling chemicals in the brain, and good reason to believe there is no such thing. This “theory” is driven by the pharmaceutical industry which has essentially annexed psychiatry as a marketing tool, forestalling the collapse of the “profession” which is heir to phrenology, a sibling of eugenics and a willing tool of totalitarian governments and domestic abusers everywhere.
Anyway, what used to be common knowledge periodically surfaces above the noise. Here’s a recent article:
“Taking a pill to treat depression is widely believed to work by reversing a chemical imbalance. But in this week’s Scrubbing Up health column, Dr Joanna Moncrieff, of the department of mental health sciences at University College London, says they actually put people into “drug-induced states”.
If you’ve seen a doctor about emotional problems some time over the past 20 years, you may have been told that you had a chemical imbalance, and that you needed tablets to correct it. It’s not just doctors that think this way, either. Magazines, newspapers, patients’ organisations and internet sites have all publicised the idea that conditions like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder can be treated by drugs that help to rectify an underlying brain problem.
“People with schizophrenia and other conditions are frequently told that they need to take psychiatric medication for the rest of their lives to stabilise their brain chemicals, just like a diabetic needs to take insulin. The trouble is there is little justification for this view of psychiatric drugs. …”
Don’t get me wrong. Altered states have their place. Hallucinogens probably kept me sane when I was a teenager in an abusive home. But like any tool drugs can be abused, especially when they become a habit, like psych drugs.
