Op Ed

HuffPost - World Health Organization’s Junk Diagnosis For 'Gaming Disorder' Trivializes Mental Illness.
"The WHO’s proposal has been in the works for a couple of years and has already generated controversy among scholars in the field. One group of 28 scholars wrote an open letter regarding the WHO’s proposal, criticizing it for lack of scientific support, lack of transparency, and failure to adequately consider the clinical harms and human rights concerns of the proposed diagnosis. Some scholars certainly support the WHO’s efforts, but they may be in the minority. One survey I conducted of scholars regarding their attitudes toward video games found that only about 30 percent agreed that video game addiction is a serious problem. That the WHO appear to have made little effort to understand the concerns of more skeptical scholars is worrisome."

Speaking of mental health diagnoses...

I saw a reddit thread linking to an article about Trump's recent NY Times interview where he was almost completely incoherent. Someone linked a few interviews with Donald Trump dating back to 1980. In 80 and 87 he was very well-spoken. In 2005 there's a little decline, but he's still like a completely different person than he is now.

There's just no getting around the fact that the guy is suffering from some severe mental decline, way beyond the usual for a man in his early 70s.

No spin, just go look at some interviews for yourselves.

I keep warning you. Doors and corners, kid. That's where they get you. Humans are too fucking stupid to listen.
