[The central moral conflict of the book lies in the relationship between the system and its rules and the humanity which pays the price for the defences of those in charge and the system they created and maintain at the expense of human decency. This is the point of the book’s title. Whenever you try to behave sensibly and look after yourself in a crazy world, there’s a catch, a catch which has entered the language as a result of Heller’s book. Catch-22 takes many forms, but the central one is that you don’t have to fly any more missions if you’re crazy, but you have to ask first, and anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn’t crazy (p.46)
‘There was only one catch and that was catch 22, which specified that a concern for one’s safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr [Yossarian’s tent-mate and a pilot who kept crashing and of whom more anon] was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn’t have to, but if he didn’t want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
‘”That’s some catch, that Catch-22,” he observed.]
CATCH 33 – HOOK, LINE and SINKER (for money)
[Will anyone be considered normal anymore? Changes are due to be made in the Diagnostic Statistics Manual in 2013. The last DSM (DSM-IV) came out 16 years ago. The proposed changes for the next DSM have been a decade in the making. The changes include broadening what use to be considered a fact of life (mild sadness and bad feelings) and turning it into a psychiatric illness that is to be treated with medication. Has something upset you mildly or do you have “mild anxiety depression”? Are you angry at something or do you have “temper dysregulation”? It is painfully obvious that the pharmaceutical industry is using this to increase their profit margin even more. This new addition of the DSM intends to codify and label any and all human woes for simplification of diagnosing any all people for standardization of insurance coverage and medication distribution. Anyone and everyone can be labeled with a disorder.]
[From Reuters: President Barack Obama said he wants to see state governments contribute more names of people barred from buying guns to the database, part of a sweeping set of executive actions he announced after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in December. The database, called the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, is used by gun dealers to check whether a potential buyer is prohibited from owning a gun. ]

[“…if defendant is in possession of deadly weapons, defendant is guilty of violating Ohio revised code 2923.13(5). Whoever violates this section is guilty of having weapons while under disability, a felony of the third degree…”
Here’s the revised code the warrant referred to:
“2923.13 Having weapons while under disability.
(5) The person is under adjudication of mental incompetence, has been adjudicated as a mental defective, has been committed to a mental institution, has been found by a court to be a mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order, or is an involuntary patient other than one who is a patient only for purposes of observation. As used in this division, “mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order” and “patient” have the same meanings as in section 5122.01 of the Revised Code” (Quail, 2012)
This is the second time we have seen in the media of a Veteran who has had his guns confiscated under the assumption that they are not mentally fit to have them. This writer believes that disarming those that the government has trained to killed, are being targeted to control guns, as well as making it easier for them to produce martial law if it needed to be implemented. Their trained assassins would now be disarmed, and possibly detained, indefinitely, in the Psychiatric ward.]
[An anonymous New York psychiatrist (Dr. X) who works for the VA has come forward to state that “things have been getting a little bit uneasy . . . for veterans.” That’s an understatement. We already know thatNew York State is going after veterans who have sought any kind of treatment for mental health. Dr. X reveals that, when veterans come to the VA for help, they’re often treated by ultra-liberal interns and residents who think of them as baby-killers; the VA actively seizes guns from any veterans treated for mental health issues, not matter how minor or stable the problem; veterans who refuse to give up their weapons are institutionalized; and psychiatrists get a $3,000 incentive whenever a veteran loses his guns.]
[An Extensive, Constantly Updated Database
Yo’s team will visit the homes of 11 people who are considered Armed and Prohibited Persons, people on the so-called APPs list. They are all people who at one time purchased firearms legally, but have since run afoul of the law, Yo says. “Such as maybe a felony conviction, mental health commitment, they received a restraining order, domestic violence restraining order — some type of a misdemeanor conviction that prohibits them from possessing firearms.”]
Not much commentary here except to say anybody on a SSRI or MAOI or Tricyclic anti-depressant, anybody who ever had a restraint order or mental evaluation can be disarmed. You can court request a restraining order or an issue for a Florida Baker Act, or California statute 5150 on anyone as well. It doesn’t matter how you get into their sights, but it will be an ever expanding fascism in the medical-prison ponzi to continue to erode your rights. Not just the second amendment but all of them. The DSM-V will assist greatly in this continued fraud and agenda under OBAMACARE and the reality will soon be that any anger demonstrated will be considered enough to mandate a psyche evaluation. Ironic that the natural response to being raped and robbed by a criminal government should not evoke an angry response. Therefore they will mandate you take the fruit loops of psychotropics or else. You must never allow them to get you in the PhRMA soft kill system and do your best to handle the anger issues or you may end up as a James Eagan Holmes or Jared Lee Loughner and working for them.
