Psychochemistry – Personality By Prescription
By Ernest Havemann
Playboy Vol.15, No. 11-November 1968
Today’s drugs can turn you on or off, bend your mind and alter your perception, but tomorrow’s will do everything from curtailing your need for sleep to boosting your intellect and even reshaping your psyche
As anyone can plainly see, this is one of mankind’s strangest eras. On the one hand, all is pessimism: The world is plagued by violence, starvation, overpopulation and alienation. Yet never have so many well-informed men been so rosily optimistic. There is a strong school of thought holding that all our problems are basically chemical and will soon yield to solution as readily as the question of what happens when two atoms of hydrogen join with an atom of oxygen, (In case you have forgotten, H2-fO=H20; namely, water. As simple as all that.)
It is typical of our era that Dr. Glenn Seaborg, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, should have taken time out from worrying about the atom to tell an audience of women, not entirely in jest, that they will soon have a marvelous “antigrouch pill” to sweeten the dispositions of their menfolk. (Presumably, it could be slipped into the unsuspecting male’s morning coffee, like a lump ol sugar, to turn him from terrible tiger to purring kitten.) It is also typical that two other respected thinkers, one a scientist and one an author, should have placed the rather humorous-sounding antigrouch pill on a serious global basis.
The scientist, Dr. Heinz Lehmann of Canada’s McGill University, has predicted an “anti-aggression drug” that will overcome what seem up to now to be the natural human tendencies to pick quarrels and to make war. The author, Arthur Koestler, claims in his The Ghost in the Machine that most of man’s troubles are caused by a conflict between his “old brain,” which controls his emotions, and his “new brain,” which determines his thoughts; this gap will eventually be bridged by a drug that will give us all a “coordinated, harmonious state of mind,” making us far too contented to fret or to fight.
There are also respected researchers on record as believing that man will soon have drugs that will cure his major mental disturbances, eliminate his fears and anxieties, keep him fat or lean at will, let him decide for himself how long, if at all, he cares to sleep, make him much smarter than ever before and even permit him to live longer. You name it and there is somebody—not a wild-eyed visionary but a sane and skeptical scientist—who believes it is just around the corner.
Are we really on the verge of a chemical breakthrough in the control of human personality? If you were a psychiatrist at a mental hospital, you would have to think so- You might be inclined to say, indeed, that the breakthrough has already been made. What has happened in the mental hospitals has taken place so rapidly and spectacularly that the events have outsped communications; they constitute one of the great untold and unappreciated stories of our time. Few people know about it except the veteran staff members who worked in the hospitals is the old days—meaning before about 1955—and who work there yet.

With the 5-4 ruling in Obergefell v Hodges, Supreme Court justices determined that right to marriage equality is protected under constitution. As of June 26, 2015, same-sex marriages are now legal across the entirety of the United States after repeated attempts by multiple states to ban them unconstitutional.
According to Gallup polls, Americans approve of same-sex marriage by a small margin of those who disapprove of it. While public attitudes towards same sex marriage in American have been steadily rising since 2001, the approval rates for same-sex marriage are much higher with younger adults and the youth population.
There are several reasons for this disparity in attitudes between generations, but the primary reason for public acceptance of same-sex marriage and homosexual values is the control of the media, the propagation and repetition of LGBT messaging.
In May 2013, Vice President Joe Biden gave a speech to a Democratic National Committee event honoring Jewish Heritage Month. In no uncertain terms, he made mention to the Jewish control of the media as an unequivocal fact, and credited Jewish leaders in the industry as the primary reason for the rise in public approval towards homosexual values.
“I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry,” he said. “The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good. ”
President Obama has close working relationships with both high-powered LGBT activists as well as Jewish Hollywood insiders. Also, the Obama-Biden Administration has appointed more than 225 openly LGBT professionals to full-time and advisory positions in the executive branch.
In his 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama pretended to oppose same-sex marriage in order to gain the support of religious moderates; a position that is diametrically the opposite to the position he holds today. He said that “marriage is the union between a man and a woman,” and as a Christian, he believes it is also a sacred union and that “God is in the mix.”
White House Issues Press Release And Statements From President Obama For Michael Brown, But Not For Samantha Ramsey
Under The Radar Media
Aside from the obvious problem of having a enemy-occupied media, there is also the problem of the controlled media’s willingness to collude with its controlled assets within the enemy-occupied government, when convenient.
While it is not certain if the plan to “eventize” the shooting incident of Michael Brown (while downplaying similar events) came from the Obama Administration, or the Democratic National Committee(DNC), or some American intelligence agency, or from the smokey backroom of some major advertising agency, or some combination thereof, it is certain that the incident was intentionally manufactured to promote the idea of a nation-wide crisis.
This theory can be easily verified by examining the cases of the police shooting of Samantha Ramsey and the police shooting of Michael Brown. These were two similar incidents that happened just months apart from each other. The only two differences were that one of the victims was African-American and the other was Caucasian, and one incident was completely blown out of proportion and the other was mostly ignored. Interestingly enough, the Huffington Post let their readers know that the incident involving Samantha Ramsey was a “crime,” while the Michael Brown incident is “political” (see screenshot above).
On August 18, 2014 President Obama issued a statement on the shooting of Michael Brown and Ferguson, MO; announcing that his Justice Department was going to involved in the promotion of this event. Then on November 24, 2014, the president issued yet another statement on the Ferguson incident.
“As you know, a few moments ago, the grand jury deliberating the death of Samantha Ramsey issued its decision. It’s an outcome that, either way, was going to be subject of intense disagreement not only in Boone County, but across America. So I want to just say a few words suggesting how we might move forward.
First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so we need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It’s an understandable reaction. But I join Samantha’s parents in asking anyone who protests this decision to do so peacefully. Let me repeat Samantha’s father’s words: “Hurting others or destroying property is not the answer. No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my daughter’s death to be in vain. I want it to lead to incredible change, positive change, change that makes the Boone County region better for everyone.” Samantha Ramsey’s parents have lost more than anyone. We should be honoring their wishes.
I also appeal to the law enforcement officials in Boone County and the region to show care and restraint in managing peaceful protests that may occur. Understand, our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. They’ve got a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law. As they do their jobs in the coming days, they need to work with the community, not against the community, to distinguish the handful of people who may use the grand jury’s decision as an excuse for violence — distinguish them from the vast majority who just want their voices heard around legitimate issues in terms of how communities and law enforcement interact.

Raw Story is the popular liberal news blog that is just to the left of the Huffington Post. It used to be a pretty decent source for quick news updates of the day, that is, until the election of President Barack Obama. It’s now just a propaganda arm of the Media Matters/Southern Poverty Law Center political correct mafia, and their stories are now primarily the typical far-left, Marxist and pro-homosexual agitation variety.
On November 25, 2014, Raw Story ran with a salacious local news item about a high school girl who stands accused of running a prostitution ring on Facebook. The screenshot below shows Raw Story editors using a Shutterstock image of a young Caucasian girl to portray seventeen year old suspect, Alexa Nicole De Armas.
The Shutterstock image used above brings to mind the type of young girl you see in a typical suburban neighborhood who shops with her yoga pants-wearing soccer Mom at the local Whole Foods. The actual photo of Alexa Nicole De Armas (shown in the screenshot below) shows that the image Raw Story wanted to plant in the minds of their readers is far from reality.
Why Raw Story routinely portrays criminal suspects who are non-white/people of color, as Caucasians via stock images, should at best raise serious questions about its journalist integrity. Too see a photo of the real suspect, all you had to do was click on the news link that Raw Story used in the article, or simply put “Alexa Nicole De Armas” into your favorite search engine, so perhaps Raw Story assumes their readers are either too lazy or too stupid to even do that. Maybe they are right!
Even more disturbing than Raw Story falsely portraying the perpetrator was reading through the comments section. Raw Story readers are mostly feminists, pro-homosexual heterosexuals, radical LGBT cultists and other assorted Marxist agitators so their comical assumptions and unsophisticated, childlike conclusions of news stories from imagined information based on their own politically correct bias is the order of the day. Raw Story readers routinely use gutter language involving toilet humor and sex, so a good number of them were applauding the fact that their (paraphrasing) standard, conservative-looking little White girl could get dirty and play in the gutter with the rest of the trendy sex-obsessed degenerates. They loved the fact that their lily-white criminal could be such an entrepreneurial individual, at such an early age, since prostitution is the world’s oldest profession and all.
The good thing about Raw Story is that the comments section is so heavily moderated and troll-infested that you can often shame the editors and other readers by simply noting that they are using stock photos of Caucasians to portray suspects of non-White heritage. To continue to appear credible and not raise suspicions with more intelligent readers, they may quickly remove the offending image and replace it with something more innocuous, but very rarely do they use the correct image.
Why Did The Police Shooting of Michael Brown Receive National Attention While The Police Shooting of Samantha Ramsey Did Not?
Victim: Samantha Rasey
Age (at time of death): 19
Brief synopsis of incident: The victim was with friends and was shot multiple times and killed after a questionable incident with a White police officer who claimed to have feared for his life. Most people in the United States and much of the Western world have probably never even heard of the shooting death of Samantha Ramsey. You can read about the case here and view the picture of the scratch Officer Brockman received on his foot which made him fear for his life and the lives of others.
Victim: Michael Brown
Age (at time of death): 18
Brief synopsis of incident: The victim was with a friend and was shot multiple and killed after a questionable encounter with a White police officer who claimed to have feared for his life. Most people in the Western world now know many details about the case, but for comparison’s sake, you can read a timeline here.
A Google News search for “Samantha Ramsey,” conducted on November 27, 2014 yielded only about 11,800 results. A Google News search for for “Michael Brown,” conducted on November 27, 2014 yielded about 179,000,000 results, or just over 150% more online news coverage. The White House released a statement on behalf of President Obama himself over the shooting death of Michael Brown, but there was no statement by the White House for the shooting death of Samantha Ramsey. Conclusion Obviously, there are problems with race, crime and police violence in America. However, due to the media’s selective reporting, their decisions to highlight specific incidents while downplaying and/or ignoring other incidents only highlights a truly sinister bias. One should question the obvious disparity in the coverage between the two events and begin to question why the people who control the media do what they do.
