The Propaganda Psychogenic Illness Phenomenon: You Are Not Sick--You're Just Nuts--

The Psychogenic Illness Propaganda Phenomenon

Well, it’s happened in the United States with Morgellen and Lyme Disease sufferers and now it is happening in China.

It is the use of labeling people “psychogenic” in a propaganda effort to limit responsibility and shroud grave concerns concerning public health and safety issues.

Today a report in the NY times describes the use of this propaganda strategy when more than 1,300 employees at a textile mill in China fell ill with symptoms of convulsions, breathing difficulties, vomiting and temporary paralysis. See the NYtimes article here for details.
