References used in the video below are quoted from DMS IV – Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders and The ICD – 10 Classification of Mental and Behavioral Disorders.
In the video, Peter Breggin, M.D. states, “‘The main symptoms of the hyperactivity, the one considered by the Psychiatric Association Manual, to have the most power, the symptom is ‘often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat’. That’s it. That is the most powerful symptom.”
Another gentleman goes on to state, “Under ‘impulsivity;, often the first criteria, ‘blurts out answers to before questions have been completed and under ‘inattention, first criteria is often fails to give close attention details or makes careless mistakes in school work or other activities.’ If you look at how this diagnosis has been formulated it’s to refine disruptive classroom behavior with the purpose of being able to medicate, you know, under these psychiatric guidelines.”
Film maker, “Michael, to hear the experts say, ‘if you manifest any number of symptoms like easily distracted, blurting out an answer before you’re asked, daydreaming and looking out the window, fidgeting at your desk, unable to sit still, that these are the symptoms of the mental disorder called ADHD. What do you think about that?”
Michael Moore, “That was me! All those things were me! (laughing) Seriously, if this had been the way things were run back when I was growing up: always asking questions, always seeming a bit agitated, (laugh), my mind drifting off to some creative place. I tell you, they would have had me so doped up, you guys would have never heard of me. There never would have been a ‘Roger and Me’ or anything else. “
