Ivor E. Tower, M.D.

Volume 11, series 3, pages 4-5


This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch "us against them" mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism.

Having the patient committed to a qualified mental health institution is the best option for family and loved ones. For this reason, all psychiatrists and family physicians should be provided with educational materials which will help them recognize the various symptoms and warning signs accompanying onset. Since comparatively little is known about Anti-Government Phobia at the present time, a government-funded health commission should be set up to oversee, and help focus, future research.

Somewhere in over 1/2 ton of vinyl in my attic I have The First Family by Vaugh Meader on virgin vinyl, unopened. Between orgasms, I will try to find it and get it on CD for you guys. Don't forget Hal Halbrrook in "Mark Twain Tonight". Then there's Will Rogers. Heck - most of the book of Genesis ---------
