Fascinating and dangerous article about psychiatrist General Brock Chisholm who later became first Director General of the World Health Organisation. Chisholm proposes that we set aside the "mistaken old ways of our elders", and we take charge of our own destiny. In his agenda no one is without a part to play in this challenging undertaking: the church, the home, schools, and government should set themselves the task of examining and understanding and treating the ills that beset society - and the individual. And the role of the psychiatrist in this venture is not merely that of a healer; it is the greater task of him who seeks the causes of fear, anxiety, prejudice, and vicious passion, and works to eradicate those causes.
Chisholm's works are dangerous in their blatant attack on the rights of individuals to determine their own destiny under free will, and to replace free will with the directed will of a psychiatry based elite. Twisted minds such as this were linked to the rise of eugenics which proposed the eradication of those unable to conform to the proposed new world order. Thousands of sterilisations of women considered unfit to have children were carried out in the USA prior to WW2, and the Nazi programme of eugenics simply expanded on the eugenics theme. Chisholm's twisted views have been incorporated into WHO and UN policies designed to 'Change' western societies into the system of world government. The flooding of western democracies with NGOs Non Governmental Organsiations and third sector organisations together with 'Leadership Training' is also UN policy.
Wikipaedia provides the following information on Chisholm.....
After the war, Chisholm pursued his lifelong passion of medicine, earning his M.D. from the University of Toronto by 1924 before interning in England, where he specialized in psychiatry. After six years in general practice in his native Oakville, he attended Yale University where he specialized in the mental health of children. During this time Chisholm developed his strong view that children should be raised in as intellectually free environment as possible, independent of the prejudices and biases - political, moral and religious - of their parents. At the outbreak of the Second World War, Chisholm rapidly rose in stature within the Canadian military and government. He joined the war effort as a psychiatrist dealing with psychological aspects of soldier training before rising to the rank of Director General of the Medical Services, the highest position within the medical ranks of the Canadian Army. He was the first psychiatrist to head the medical ranks of any army in the world. In 1944, the Canadian Government created the position of Deputy Minister of Health. Chisholm was first the person to occupy the post and held it until 1946.
Chisholm was a controversial public speaker who nevertheless had great conviction, and drew much cynicism within the Canadian public for comments in the mid-1940s that children should not be encouraged to believe in Santa Claus. Calls for his resignation as Deputy Minister of Health were quelled by his appointment as Executive Secretary of the WHO, but his public perception as "Canada's most famously articulate angry man" lingered.
Chisholm was an Honorary President of the World Federalists of Canada, President of the World Federation of Mental Health (1957â€“1958) and an Honorary Fellow of a number of prestigious medical associations. In 1959, the American Humanist Association named him Humanist of the Year. He received numerous honorary degrees and was made a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1967.
