Psychology Today recently published, ’ Tin Foil Hats: Tired Trope or Sign of the Times? From clothing to electronic devices, modern-day tin foil hats are big business,’ by Joe Pierre M.D.

B.N. Frank of the independent, alternative news source Activist Post responded with “Mental Health Magazine Mocks Federally Recognized Disability and “Havana Syndrome” Victims Receiving Gov’t Compensation.”

Media Literacy

The two contrasting articles offer the perfect opportunity for the public to pony up in the areas of human rights, critical media literacy, and democracy that have been at the forefront of the work of “Project Censored” since 1976.

“Project Censored educates students and the public about the importance of a truly free press for democratic self-government. We expose and oppose news censorship and we promote independent investigative journalism, media literacy, and critical thinking. Through our website, weekly radio program, annual book, and other programs, we provide this service to the United States, Canada, UK, and the world.” (Mickey Huff is the third director of the effort.)

Being an Adult

In discussing another environmental issue requiring critical analysis, Learn Your Land’s Adam Haritan noted the need for open-minded inquiry. “What is true is that this is a complex and nuanced issue that requires some thinking, it requires some digging, some acceptance, and some letting go of previously held beliefs. and this is what being an adult is all about, not jumping to conclusions, not being triggered, not taking media headlines at face value, but being willing to look into all sides of the story, and ultimately being willing to have our minds changed.”

Mental Health and the Dedication to Reality

The late author M. Scott Peck defined mental health as “the on-going process of dedication to reality at all costs.”   In his 1983 best-seller, “The People of the Lie, the Hope for Healing Human Evil,” M. Scott Peck specifically addressed the topic of human evil.  He noted, “Lying is both a cause and a manifestation of evil.”

Beyond Censorship, Recognizing Mass Media’s Manipulation of Attitudes

Humans are endowed with a sensory system that warns of danger, including the danger that is represented by lying or manipulation.

That sensory system activates a sense of discomfort.

The mass culture is being manipulated to address its discomfort by attacking the canaries, whistleblowers, and activists who are identifying areas where society is out of alignment with reality, instead of doing the deep, critical analysis to confront the lies.

The discomfort is a warning. We must develop a skillset for understanding the evolutionary role of the discomfort.

Instead, the industry-controlled mass media is activating and directing the discomfort. The Psychology Today article is but one representation of a deliberate, concerted, insidious effort to scramble the critical thinking skills of readers.

We are at the junction that former president Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about:

“The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”

Decoding Perpetrator, Victim, Accuser, Abuser, Rescuer

One approach utilized in the Psychology Today article is to promote the qualities of the perpetrator, victim, accuser, abuser, and rescuer in an attempt to misguide the conclusions of the reader.

1. The article points to industries that manufacture products sold to protect against EMFs as the perpetrator:

“Whether stylish clothing items or electronic devices, these products are effectively pricey, modern-day tin foil hats designed to appeal to or exploit a consumer base besieged by so-called “modern health worries”

The implication is that the author and the psychology profession are protective, by acting as an accuser and rescuer.

2. But while portraying the EMF protection product industry as a perpetrator, the writer is also insidiously portraying the EMF activist community as lacking the discernment to recognize a predatory industry, i.e. engaged activists are intellectually inferior to the psychologist.  

Concerned citizens, including those experiencing and reporting harm caused by an inadequately regulated industry, are ‘mistrustful, gullible, or paranoid‘ – all forms of mental deficiency.  

This includes the line near the end of the article:  “buying into the modern-day tin foil hat market is less likely to help and more likely to ramp up one’s irrational fears while feeding a growing consumer market in the process.”

3. The article features stories about individuals who have received a diagnosis of schizophrenia and methamphetamine-induced psychosis, without differentiating that there are individuals with EMF environmentally induced conditions who are not receiving care for similar (extreme) conditions. The article insidiously establishes a connection in the mind of the reader between the two populations.

4. The author goes on to establish a link between concern regarding RF exposure and conspiracy theory.

“Whether stylish clothing items or electronic devices, these products are effectively pricey, modern-day tin foil hats designed to appeal to or exploit a consumer base besieged by so-called “modern health worries” about the likes of new technology, government surveillance, and gang-stalking that includes those who are merely mistrustful and vulnerable to misinformation as well as those who embrace conspiracy theories and are truly paranoid.”

Where did the term “Conspiracy Theory” originate?

According to Sally Painter writing for TopSecretWriters.com,

‘The term conspiracy theory brings to mind all kinds of connotations that range from outlandish to crazy. These associations with the phrase were intentional and exactly what the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) intended. According to Zero Hedge, the term Conspiracy Theory was created by the CIA in 1967 as a way to discredit anyone who dared to challenge their official version of the truth.’

The UK’s David Grimes was more direct than Psychology Today’s Joe Pierre in an interview with Vice when he stated, “Many activists have the lowest level of knowledge about the thing on which they opine. You can convince yourself you believe something if it makes you feel good about yourself. One of the motivators of people spreading these conspiracy theories is the idea of them having special knowledge. This is illusionary superiority or illusionary knowledge, and it’s very alluring to certain people. Narcissism is a factor behind this.”

Seventeen (Mostly) Men

Seventeen individuals continue to misrepresent the safety of non-ionizing radiation, and Psychology Today reinforced the misleading strategy of implying that radiation that is not ionizing is therefore not harmful.

“…there are legitimate health concerns associated with exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF), with the most evidence-based health risks coming from ionizing radiation in the form of UV light, X-rays, and Gamma rays, which are known to cause cancer. The effects of non-ionizing radiation emitted from power lines and household appliances like microwaves, computers, and cellphones are much less clear, however,” is followed only by references that deny harm.


Goal-oriented predators target vulnerable populations, and deliberately move individuals through a series of boundary violations in order to reduce resistance, while progressing towards higher and higher levels of premeditated abusive behaviors.

Moving the general population into a position of “group think” that scapegoats and ridicules a portion of the population is being practiced as a lucrative profession.

When the public continues to dismiss those recognizing these progressive boundary violations as ‘conspiracy theorists,’ society continues its fall from grace.

That a psychology magazine would publish an article that incorporates the psychological manipulation of the public is ‘a sign of the times.”

Instead of “tin foil hats,” in an earlier age, any derogatory name that de-humanizes a subset of the population might have been employed.

Dwight Eisenhower warned, “”A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.”

Carl Sagan also cautioned, “if we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority then we are up for grabs.”

There is an ancient Chinese proverb, “When sleeping women wake, mountains will move.”

Vandana Shiva has noted, “We are either going to have a future where women lead the way to make peace with the Earth or we are not going to have a human future at all.”

This includes putting an end to the unspeakable practice of the medical profession portraying women’s health concerns as irrational, and as mental illnesses.

 Imitating the Perpetrator

A college professor of mine analyzing the Black Panthers noted that women who seek to “shatter the glass ceiling” and compete with men are still perpetuating a model of abuse. Jiddu Krishnamurti taught, “It’s no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society”

Women everywhere, and caring men, need to stand with all women everywhere, defending scores of women, especially in the United States, who are dying of neurological illnesses at younger and younger ages.  This is obscene.

Be very uncomfortable.
