ME + me : Dysfunctional varia: Dutch, Spanish, Chinese and British

 

    "Society is an insane asylum run by the inmates."
   -- Goffman
    "If mankind had wished for what is right, they might have had it long ago. The theory is plain enough; but they are prone to mischief, 'to every good work reprobate.'"
 
 -- Hazlitt + Heidelberger
        Katechismus
    "It was from this time that I developed my way of judging the Chinese by dividing them into two kinds: one humane and one not. It took an upheaval like the Cultural Revolution to bring out these characteristics in people (..)"
   (Jung Chang, "Wild Swans", p.454)

As explained yesterday, this is yesterdays file with some updates and corrections, while yesterday's original file has been replaced by my translation of my conversation with Amsterdam Municipal Chief Order and Security Miss Mr. Maureen Sarucco who very much rather had me be gassed, murdered or otherwise drop dead than do her personal duty, while knowing precisely what and wherefrom and why I complained, who I am, who my father, mother and grandfather were, and so on: It probably seemed a pity to her not to have been able to let them be gassed or murdered too.


I am still not well at all etc. as before but right now a thunderstorm seems to be starting, so maybe there will be some relief from the heat, that kept me from writing yesterday, apart from other evils I will return to later.

Today I have a mixed bag of incidental varia, with rather a lot of naked women, soccer, foodnews, and especially Chinese news, as it happens, and a dose giantesqueness


1. Health-warning: I am a dysfunctional believer

On July 12 I praised the Dutch genius professor Jos van der Meer, who in today's Dutch Quality Paper (esp. for Dutch acadamic IQs of 115) NRC that he has a colleague Dutch genius, the psychiatrist Eeckhout. This I learned from the article by the NRC genius journalist Esther Wittenberg, who seems to be professor Jos van der Meer's proudest student, for she wrote a whole article of genius called

They have nothing, but they do suffer
Ever more hospitals treat unexplained complaints

which they do - OF COURSE! - with the genius invention of professors Wessely and Reeves: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Once the temperature has fallen I hope to faithfully copy the article, but for now I only translate its concluding paragraph, since I found it in today's paper copy of NRC, whereas its editors do no wish this joyous news of Ever more hospitals treat unexplained complaints, like true Jomanda's (%):


Jomanda
The reliable face of Real Dutch Medicine
The equivalent (Du: "gelijkwaardige") of professor Van der Meer
(except that Jomanda is smarter and richer and healed even more sick Dutchmen)

or like real witches, and like the most veritable of honourable psychiatrists:

"You can't send these human beings away just like that with the message "It is all between your ears", psychiatrist Eeckhout says. "Then you give them the feeling that they are posturing, that they are malingerers. These human beings have pain in their body. They have the right to be acknowledged in the negative spiral wherein they have come, with their complaints. They deserve help to get out of it."

You get it: Massive doses of CBT and GET, for a mere 110 euro per 45 minutes for an ordinary psychologist, probably the triple for a Medical Specialist like this very honourable doctor Eeckhout, whom you can see feasting with his equivalents here, and whose equivalent professor Van der Meer - very well improved and much healed after stiff dosses of CBT and GET of the same kind of Lying ProcessTM that the very very honourable doctor Eeckhout deals out, as the subtitle of the Dutch muse of professor Jos so subtly explains:

From that moment on the 23-year old female student knew:
I am not ill but I behave as if I am ill

Pure Lying ProcessTM ! The 23-year old student was "fatigued" because - as she herself, yet another typically Dutch genius called Ankie Willems tells Jos's very beloved ever truthful Esther:

"I was fatigued because I haven't done anything for a year.
 I had to pass borders."

CBT and GET assisted She Got Cured! By A Pure Lying ProcessTM! You Must Have The Faith to Think Yourself Well! Trust Jos van der Meer! Trust Jomanda! Trust psychiatric healer Eeckhout!

I know all that because I myself did not do anything for 32 years now, except be thrown repeatedly from University for using inappropriate language to ask inappropriate questions; consort with professor drs. van Thijn and prof. mr.dr. Cohens friends and cowardly refusing to be gassed by them, not even when finding that gassing invalids is a Painless Process ms.mr. Maureen Sarucco, still Chief Security Officer of the Proud Capital of Karreman's Moral Dutch Paradise, full 16 million of Eeckhout-equivalents; even so becoming an M.A. in psychology with the best possible degree because of my dysfunctional beliefs; but happily kept from the doctorate by the Mafia's Best Friend prof. mr.dr. Cohen, also a personal friend of prof. mr.dr. Cohen with whom she collaborated 8 years ago to save 17 (or 19) Amsterdam drugsmafiosi - many Surinams one suspects, ms.mr. Maureen Sarucco being also Surinam, which much helps the safe trading of cocaine, crack and heroine in Amsterdam, ever since I spoke with her 19 years ago (19 * 25 billion euroos in illegal drugs = 475 billiion euros for Proud Amsterdam and its Proud Chief Security Officers and her many friends in Surinam); and I designed and wrote my dysfunctional site with my dysfunctional mind, having fled cowardly from being gassed, harassed, and threatened with murder by the best friends and dearest colleagues of Chief Security Officer ms.mr. Maureen Sarucco of the Proud Mafia-Paradise aka Amsterdam, her very own Sin-City, where she proudly, honorably and like A Real Dutchman helps supply all Dutch soccerfans their daily nose dose, at the internationally cheapest rates.

I do hope to translate my conversation with her in 1991 soon, but meanwhile am forced to assure my reader that all this is pending my mysterious disappearance or my personal retraction of all I have ever said after having spend time in Amsterdam's cosy prisons for using inappropriate language. (See also: 6. The relativity of values in China and in professor Wessely's mind)

More later, about the Dutch about genius Dutch psychiatrist Eeckerbout and the angel of the Amsterdam Drugs Economy, Chief Security Officer ms. mr. Sarucco, my personal Ilse Koch,

ms.mr. Maureen Sarucco
Amsterdam's  very own very proud Ilse Koch
(in PC colors, like many Amsterdam drugsmafiosi:
A woman who loves gassing invalids and does it with Gay Pride )

and so noble in mien, morals and humanity that she was Holland's Civil Servant Manager of 2007, I must assume thanks to her personally saving - ably assisted by prof. mr.dr. Cohen (to the right, smiling like a villain, busy keeping mafia and civil servants and the Dutch Royal Family cosily together in his very own worldfamous way

HRH Prince Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands,
with the two of
Amsterdam's highest drugsmafiosi protectors
(in Amsterdam Special Tolerant Style)

who must hate and despise my father and grandfather so much that he proudly refused for 10 years time and time and time again to receive their son and grandson - that ms.mr. Sarucco and himself saved personally 17 (or 19) Amsterdam drugsmafiosi from being murdered, shot or harassed, e.g. by the subhuman likes of gassable entities like me, as they were proud to personally tell the press around 2004.

Much more in Dutch in ME in Amsterdam, with 39 Questions my - said 16 Amsterdam academic philosophers - fascist and terrorist questions for reasons of which I was not allowed to take the M.A. philosophy and removed from the faculty of philosophy as a - fascist and terrorist - student. (I am a bad, bad, bad man, with very dysfunctional beliefs and values, no doubt due to my dysfunctional genes inherited from a family consisting only of properly convicted, by a Dutch Court, in A.D. 1941, Dutch Political Terrorists.)

Hence my healthwarning in the title.


2. True Dutch GritTM and resilience: In Holland, 2=1 and is a bit more equal than 1.

On July 10 I showed what my parents and grandparents where convicted for

 Why my family was in The Dutch Resistance  in WW II

where you should realize that according to mayors and alderman of Amsterdam my mother is "a dirty cuntwhore", as publicly screamed out by Amsterdam civil servants whose Wildersian manners with Moroccans and Surinams I had dared to criticize, for which reason again they could threaten me repeatedly with murder, after which I was told in town hall that they were allowed to do so, and that I had not one queer ("geen ene flikker") to do with what my parents or grandparents had done in WW II.

But that is not the  True Dutch GritTM I wanted to tell you about, which is merely the good news that yesterday nearly a million Proud Dutchmen democratically and in communion decided that a second place is as good as a first place, except that - as everyone can see - place 2 albeit equal to place 1, 2 is even so a little more equal than 1 also.

After which enormous festivities, as detailed in fond photographic detail on July 10.

I am Proud To Be Dutch; Prouder Still To Be Amsterdamner; and Proudest That In Holland 2=1.

Indeed I foretold the last in 1989!


3. The Spanish Female Soccer Team Nekkid

On July 11 I wrote about Soccer and sex and consider The Paradox why straight (?) males love to look at - young, athletic - males, playing soccer. Is it perhaps because, as they themselves say by the 8 million that they enjoy seeing the sons of gods?

Having considered the question and answered it, I searched the internet:

Prediction (copyright, all rights reserved): The Dutch Playboy will soon have the Dutch male soccer team nekkid, so that the Dutch males can closely study their tattoos and the Dutch females likewise ponder the lengths of the members of the team.

Enjoy!

4. 350.000 sang anti-octopus songs: Paul Puss soon sold to Dutch restaurants

There is something, I found yesterday, called The Epoch Times, that has quite sensible and well written articles (and that possibly also may explain why I am read in China (and 55 - 85 other countries, every month, it is true, while I am being read 70 hours every 24 hours, I suppose because of my dysfunctional beliefs), whence comes this finely illustrated article

with such great bits of information that restore one's trust in erring and flawed humanity:

But the task of football foretelling became a treacherous one for the English-born octopus after he predicted Germany’s defeat against Spain in the semi-finals, as his aquarium received e-mails that threatened to pan-fry Paul.

Worried for the creature’s well-being, Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luiz Rodriguez Zapatero himself has ordered bodyguards for Paul’s protection. Spanish Industry Minister Miguel Sebastian has also offered him a free “immediate” transport to Spain to guarantee his safety.

Some of the 350,000-member audience watching Wednesday’s semi-final game on giant screens in Berlin sang anti-octopus songs after being smarted by Paul’s traitorous prediction.

Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano” (Juvenal),  Indeedie, sirries! It may be confidently expected that Paul the Puss - at 2 1/2 nearly senescent though psychic - will be sold to many Dutch restaurants, rather like The True Pieces of The True Cross, in the primitive unenlightend days of yore when the folks did not yet know who the true sons of god are.


5. The infective Chinese

Originally, I found The Epoch Times because of this article

There are many cases as follows, resembling HIV and also ME, but apparently being not either:

Ping An, a former Chinese military man in his 40s, suddenly felt ill after a reunion with fellow former military men in 2009.

“I have never had a headache or dizziness like that. Next I developed dermatitis and fungus on my skin. The lymph nodes in my jaw were swollen,” he said. “I was checked into the hospital five times, but my condition did not improve.”

Ping also experienced severe pains in his bones and said some of his internal organs have become hardened.

“I am in pain,” he said. “My bones are in pain. My bones crackle. I’ve developed white tongue fur.”

He added that he developed a cardiac tumour, with his skin appearing “purplish”. Once a day, he says, he experiences a minor heart attack and “muscles all over my body twitch”.

“It is a miracle that I am still alive,” he said.

The article also includes bits from the Chinese Wessely, Van der Meer, Eeckhout and Beijenberg, yea from the Chinese counterpart from Bill Reeves institution:

Like these two, hundreds more in China have reported symptoms similar to AIDS, where the immune system fails, but the patients do not test HIV-positive. New Epoch Magazine reporters have found dozens of Internet chat groups with dozens to hundreds of members saying that they also suffer from the AIDS-like symptoms.

Most people said they started developing the symptoms after having sex. Lin Feng and Ping An are two thus far who reported having AIDS-like symptoms, but have not had sex.

China’s Centre for Disease Control (CDC) dismissed the patients’ claims and classified them as having “HIV-phobia”.

In case the name "CDC" sounds familiar, as does this:

According to the CDC, because they are afraid of contracting AIDS, these patients have developed psychological problems, leading them to suffer AIDS-like symptoms.

Whatever the cause, more people are saying that they have contracted a mysterious AIDS-like disease for which they receive no effective treatment.

A man wishing to remain anonymous said: “In our group, many people who developed the symptoms have already died. New people continue to join our group. We are certain it is not a mental problem, but a virus infection. But we know nothing else about the disease. My personal guess is that there could be millions in China with the same disease.”

Patients refer to the disease as “negative HIV”, as they experience AIDS-like symptoms but don’t test positive.

And there is this, reminding at least myself of what I wrote in ME + me : On infecting and storming blood banks:

Seeking revenge

A person who wishes to remain anonymous revealed that between 2008 to 2009, an Internet group called “Harbour”, consisting of more than 240 AIDS-phobia patients, formed a tourist group to donate blood in big cities between Shenzhen and Shanghai. They attempted to spread the virus and increase the number of infected people so that the state would start to pay attention to the disease.

There is more in the article that is interesting, though it will not be contributing to really happy moods and sunny expectations.


6. The relativity of values in China and in professor Wessely's mind

The Epoch Times hails from New York and has very much news about China, most new to me, though not in tendency, and as far as I could see very well done, and written by native speakers of Chinese.

I am myself a free speech person, which is why I was removed from the University of Amsterdam for asking questions. Well reader... there are extremely brave persons in the world, some not even properly Dutch

I quote (perhaps this explains also my mentioning The Epoch Times several times)

From time to time he caught glances of other The Epoch Times workers in prison, and he once had a chance to talk to Zhang Yuhui, who was chief editor when the arrests took place, and who is still in jail. Zhang told him that he had spent 7 days and 7 nights on the "Tiger Bench" torture implement, for refusing to inform on others.

While Zhang did not elaborate, this method is known to involve forcing a person to sit with legs extended on a long, thin bench, with ropes tying the knees to the bench. Objects are then forced under the legs to bend the knees the wrong way, causing extreme agony. Zhang had also spent three days tied on a cross, in a contorted position.

The article is well worth reading, but again not conducive to happy moods and expectations.

The reason I mention Professor Wessely in this connection, is that he will unfailingly explain that the above quotation should be seen in its context, time and place, and that a man like Mr Zhang Yuhui, like the Brit Farr, had really nothing to complain about, since his superiors said so:

Professor Wessely added that the experts in 1916 were "better placed than we are to make these terrible judgments about character, mental breakdown and duty. We should be thankful we do not have to make those choices".

This is also why Professor Wessely is such a willing executioner for the British Military.


7. Chinese values according to some Chinese

It so happens that I agree with The Epoch Times on what they declare are (with my link added):

Our Values

A human being's fundamental right is the right to be heard. We uphold and defend freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly. We are also strong advocates for freedom of belief, and for all human rights, for all people.

We seek to speak out for those who are oppressed, and cannot speak for themselves. We speak to those in conflict, trying to show the common humanity they share, and the compassion that will help them truly respect the rights of others.

We work to tell the stories of daily life in our age, not on the basis of what is sensational at the moment, but instead in terms of what will be of lasting significance. We take the long view of humanity's history and future.

Here are more Chinese values (and some of mine), that is one of the most downloaded pieces on my site: Mencius on human qualities aka On a fundamental problem in ethics and morals

I wrote it in 2002, having just learned - as I had earlier from Chief Security Officer ms.mr. Maureen Sarucco of the Proud Mafia-Paradise aka Amsterdam, this time from the Chief Ombudsman of the same Proud City, and as is detailed in Dutch in ME in Amsterdam with prof.mr.dr. Cohen's imprimatur not a word is false, that one like me may be freely gassed, threatened with murder, hardly allowed to sleep for four years, all because I protest too much in inappropriate language (*) and mayor, aldermen, councilmen and civil servants in Amsterdam have far better things to do in Amsterdam than maintain Dutch laws (namely keeping their own noses very cool while amassing fortunes on the Cayman Isles, and that again in public while mayoring in order to "keep the people together", as is the slogan of Amsterdam's last mayor Cohen, who holds that one like me may be gassed and doesn't deserve the right and practical possibilities - 50-100 euroos a month in assistance - to take the Ph.D. And after all, that is

Why my family was in The Dutch Resistance  in WW II a.k.a.


8. Let's experiment on children! (The English Giantess says "no"?!)

Finally, I arrive at my last subject today, namely the experimental brainwashing of English children who pretend they are ill, as also outlined above for Dutch wimps, malingerers and frauds.

Here is first the relevant link to Ms. Chapman's site about ME and related things and problems

This is a very useful site for people concerned with ME, because Ms. Chapman - rumoured to be 6 feet 4.77 inches on bare feet, if my sources spoke truly, and hence a sight to behold: a mighty woman, one might say - has a true gift for finding information and checking whether it is true.

She has a large site about ME and related issues, like the DSM 5, a prominent psychiatric disagnostic manual that may be feared rationally to make all diseases psychosomatic, and where it then may depend on the say so of a psychotherapist whether you are really ill and fit for medical research, or whether you a mere fraud and malingerer since 32 years like me, parasiting on rich gifts of Amsterdam dole money and too lazy to dig trenches for the Dutch nation, like my father and grandfather.

You'll find on the left of her home page a list of categories with many topics each detailing lots of information.

The issue of Let's experiment on children! arises because one of the very fashionable and most remunerative Lying ProcessesTM currently en vogue, has found friends in the English government and thus rich subsidies to prove that it is a True Lying ProcessesTM as originally conceived by professors Wessely, Reeves, White, Sharpe, Van der Meer, Bleijenberg and also psychiatrists of spontaneous Dutch genius like doctor Eeckhout, the honourable and moral shrinker of souls of undeservedly sick malingering dysfunctional Dutch.

This Lying ProcessesTM has been conceived by an osteopath of apparent genius, whose practices seem to go so fast that his version of this international School of Thought calls itself the Lightning ProcessTM because it heals almost all diseases without fail in three days, unless - of course! - the patient is a pervert or weak wimp whose negative dysfunctional beliefs resist all therapeutic reason, as if one can be in pain while another - especially A Qualified Therapist! - fails to feel it, and tells him to get a grip.

THAT ProcessTM has found friends in the British government, who had some unspent pounds left from investments in Parliamentarian bird houses, government subsidied porn, and parliamentary subsidized whoremongering (to keep lean, mean and trim the modern parliamentary British way, thank you very much), whence this Great News:

“A new pilot study involving the Lightning Process and the NHS has been awarded £164,000 for research into the treatment of CFS/ME in children and adolescents."

That is precisely as if the government is seriously researching the possibilities of maoistic (**) brainwashing the scientological way by a new name (and price tickets around a mere 900 pounds for 3 days that will cure one forever from all diseases, unless one is too perverse for THAT ProcessTM).

Ms. Chapman is not moved to ecstatic happiness by the news, but asks a question the British government has nicely avoided answering by investing the 164,000 smackers as if in an honest British Parliamentarian:

Is it ethical to undertake a pilot study looking at the feasibility of recruiting children aged 8 to 18 with CFS and ME into a randomised controlled trial (RCT) comparing the Lightning Process and specialist medical care when no rigorous RCTs into the application of the Lightning Process in adults with CFS and ME have been undertaken?

And Ms. Chapman did not leave it at that: She organized A Poll:

Methinks it is not ethical, but then I am a logical psychologist, also not innocent of ethical and moral knowledge, whereas I am also seriously interested in the ethics of belief - that are here involved in the rational justifications for beliefs in the desirability of spending of these £164,000 and beliefs in the wisdom of experimenting with strange and untested "therapies" first on children.

And it seems to me such beliefs are neither rational nor moral - but as I said, I studied to rationally qualify for such judgments, and qualified very well indeed, although I am also aware some might say the study of psychology qualifies as one having dysfunctional belief systems. (But this is why I inserted "logical".)


P.S. Was I rambling, reader? I sure am tired and not cooler, and also read some Dr. Johnson (Wikipedia) and my Johnson en Boswell.

As I indicated at the top, this is a corrected and extended file that originally appeared yesterday, that will be much better understood after reading the file that replaces it for that date:

P.P.S. It may be I have to stop Nederlog for a while. The reason is that I am physically not well at all, and it seems a heath-wave is coming, which is the type of weather I can't handle well. I don't know yet, but if there is no Nederlog, now you know the reason.

Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!

P.P.S. ME - Resources needs is a Work In Progress that hasn't progressed today.


(%) Jomanda is a Dutch medium from Tiel, who heals unwell Dutchmen by the thousands, bringing them wellness through her enormous psychic powers.

(*) Namely: I spoke in "grievous and/of offensive language", as mayor Patijn, a human beastman and born torturer and sadist who mayored for the mafia, wrote me, knowing full well who my parents are, and why I was removed from the University of Amsterdam.

Incidentally, I hope to translate my father's writing about concentrationscamps in English soon, with many names and comments of living and florishing Amsterdam equivalents of Patijn.

(**) For my own and others delectation here is The Dialectical Image of The Marxist Miraculous Minimizing Male Characteristics, I recall from my communist youth:

Also for my own and others delectation here are two Proud Women proudly admiring each other, being True Human Equivalents, as I learned at the University of Amsterdam, where I was removed repeatedly as a student of philosophy because I dared to deny these self-evident truths yea even dared question them:

= Equivalent =
ms. Ilse Koch, SS-Helferin                                   ms. Maureen Sarucco, Mafia-Helferin

May I again insist politely and kindly that the Dutch Norms And Values are these, that I all learned at the University of Amsterdam, where I was removed - as the only Dutchmen ever, since May 1945 - for expressing doubts about these (coming myself from a family of Political Terrorists):

When will people finally understand one has to understand these two proud women in the context of their situation, where they merely did their duties as instructed by their superiors?

As professor Wessely - the English equivalent of above brave women - said so truly and honourably (my boldings):

Professor Wessely added that the experts in 1916 [and 1944, in Treblinka and Sachsenhausen, and in 2010 in Amsterdam and London - MM] were

"better placed than we are to make these terrible judgments about character, mental breakdown and duty. We should be thankful we do not have to make those choices".
