Nuggets from Occult Invasion—A Subtle Takeover in Process |

Dave Hunt

Posing as scientists of the psyche, or soul, psychologists and psychiatrists have taken over as the experts who alone can define normal behavior. Martin L. Gross explains:

“As the Protestant ethic has weakened in Western society, the confused citizen has turned to the only alternative he knows: the psychological expert who claims there is a new scientific standard of behavior to replace fading traditions…. The citizen-patient has been told, and usually believes, that his tormenting doubts about love, sex, work, interpersonal relations, marriage and divorce, child raising, happiness, loneliness, even death, will yield to the new technology of the mind. Mouthing the holy name of science, the psychological expert claims to know all.”

The result has been destructive to society and the family. The explosion of crime, rebellion, and immorality has coincided with the exponential growth of psychology since the early 1950s. There was a 43 percent increase in the number of Americans in the 10– 19 age bracket committed to psychiatric hospitals from 1980 to 1987, while the number of private psychiatric beds per 100,000 persons more than doubled in the five years from 1983 to 1988. What a growth industry! Psychology has been rightly called the only profession that “creates the diseases which it claims to cure.”
