Let's not limit this to mental illness.
What about all the "freaks" that were "allergic" to flourescent lights, perfumes, synthetic fabrics, meat and anything not "organic" or "natural"? I used to love saying that arsenic and hemlock are "natural"- nobody laughed... What about the "toxin cult", you know the ones that were constantly purging their bodies of all the "toxins", THEY WERE THE SICKLIEST PEOPLE I EVER MET, they caught every bug that came down the pike.
It was like little "mini-cults" within the "mother cult". These people loved being martyrs and "persscuted" by all of us idiots who didn't have our "college degree equivilency exam" (lifetime of reading Awake).
Where the hell the did the idea that we are all supposed to be vegetarians come from? If "God" didn't want us to eat animals, why are they made out to meat? lol. (vegetarians take some St. Johns wort and RELAX- I'm just funnin)
My buddy that was in the circuit work used to muse that he knew what "illness" all "the friends" would have each tour around the circuit, whatever new "mystery" illness that was discussed in Awake- like clockwork that illness would be the flavor of the week next time he visited. What a load of crap.
If they WTS really wants to make $$$, they should by stocks in company's that make depression meds! IN HOUSE PROFITS!
