Is Anti-Authoritarianism a Mental Health Problem?

PSI Blog 20180502 Is Anti-Authoritarianism a Mental Health Problem?

In a previous PSI Blog 20180418 I noted that young men (18-24 yrs) were our biggest fans. No other age group came close. Perhaps this is the group that will make history by accepting and promulgating Infinite Universe Theory. It surely won’t be the older “authoritarians” who run physics and cosmology in support of the current misbegotten paradigm. They typically defend the inanity by questioning the mental health of anyone who doesn’t believe Einstein is always right and that the universe exploded out of nothing. In this regard, I wish to thank George Coyne for this pertinent heads-up:


This is an important article on how psychiatrists are drugging kids who question authoritarians. 

"Albert Einstein, as a youth, would have likely received an ADHD diagnosis, and maybe an ODD one as well. Albert didn't pay attention to his teachers, failed his college entrance examinations twice, and had difficulty holding jobs. However, Einstein biographer Ronald Clark (Einstein: The Life and Times) asserts that Albert's problems did not stem from attention deficits but rather from his hatred of authoritarian, Prussian discipline in his schools.

Read Kuhn, everyone who hasn't that is.
Scientific revolutions do not happen overnight. It is difficult being in the forefront and therefore a minority.
I would think any self respecting physicist would know about the short comings of Albert and BBT etc.
