Nonconformity as Mental Illness (Post 500)

Autism, depression, schizophrenia... now in Australia questioning authority and introversion are officially a mental illness (but the desire to cut off your genitals and inject yourself with massive quantities of dangerous hormones for the rest of your, now shorter, life is curiously classified as sane). And how is it that one in 70 children now has autism? Is the human genome disintegrating at mind blowing speeds, or maybe it has something to do with the fact that there is no reliable test for diagnosing autism in children younger than five years old, when most diagnoses are made? Maybe if we follow the money we can uncover the truth behind the push to label everyone as possessing an incurable illness that requires lifelong, and expensive, treatment.

Runs 38 minutes.
