National PTSD Syndrome
With the latest 24/7 television news event, the BP Gulf Oil Spill, citizens in the UK and USA, have yet another event to suffer their National PTSD Syndrome collectively. 9-11 in the US and 7/7 in the UK, were excuses to put Draconian "Terrorist Acts" in place. Police powers and numbers increase, not to protect citizens, but to block citizens from access to elected officials and their legal expressions of Free Speech. The feeling of helplessness and acceptance of a Nazi style government is National PTSD Syndrome.
The UK might be the most surveilled countries in the world. They aren't the safest, but their citizens are becoming the least free in the world. America is on par with the UK. To be "Free" and "American" at the same time, one might just have to be outside the growing jurisdictions and reach of the US Super Power Police State.
A documentary on the 7/7 government reaction to "Terrorism" is a real eye opener. I found the video links on the Kenny's Side Show blog. I recommend anyone concerned with where we are, and where we are going, to view all three 10 minute clips of the documentary:

The ability to function on higher levels, and to be at peace in one's family, and dwelling, has been nationally, and internationally, affected and We the People, and all citizens of the world, are under siege by a shadow government of Police State Spies. PTSD definition excerpt:
Traumatic events that can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) include:
- Natural disasters
- A car or plane crash
- Violent assault
- Sexual or physical abuse
- Medical procedures (especially in kids)
PTSD is a response by normal people to an abnormal situation
The traumatic events that lead to post-traumatic stress disorder are usually so overwhelming and frightening that they would upset anyone. When your sense of safety and trust are shattered, it’s normal to feel crazy, disconnected, or numb – and most people do. The only difference between people who go on to develop PTSD and those who don’t is how they cope with the trauma.
After a traumatic experience, the mind and the body are in shock. But as you make sense of what happened and process your emotions, you come out of it. With post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), however, you remain in psychological shock. Your memory of what happened and your feelings about it are disconnected. In order to move on, it’s important to face and feel your memories and emotions.
Following a traumatic event, almost everyone experiences at least some of the symptoms of PTSD. It’s very common to have bad dreams, feel fearful or numb, and find it difficult to stop thinking about what happened. But for most people, these symptoms are short-lived. They may last for several days or even weeks, but they gradually lift.
If you have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), however, the symptoms don’t decrease. You don’t feel a little better each day. In fact, you may start to feel worse. But PTSD doesn’t always develop in the hours or days following a traumatic event, although this is most common. For some people, the symptoms of PTSD take weeks, months, or even years to develop.
The symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can arise suddenly, gradually, or come and go over time. Sometimes symptoms appear seemingly out of the blue. At other times, they are triggered by something that reminds you of the original traumatic event, such as a noise, an image, certain words, or a smell. While everyone experiences PTSD differently, there are three main types of symptoms, as listed below.
Re-experiencing the traumatic event
- Intrusive, upsetting memories of the event
- Flashbacks (acting or feeling like the event is happening again)
- Nightmares (either of the event or of other frightening things)
- Feelings of intense distress when reminded of the trauma
- Intense physical reactions to reminders of the event (e.g. pounding heart, rapid breathing, nausea, muscle tension, sweating)
PTSD symptoms of avoidance and emotional numbing
- Avoiding activities, places, thoughts, or feelings that remind you of the trauma
- Inability to remember important aspects of the trauma
- Loss of interest in activities and life in general
- Feeling detached from others and emotionally numb
- Sense of a limited future (you don’t expect to live a normal life span, get married, have a career)
PTSD symptoms of increased arousal
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Irritability or outbursts of anger
- Difficulty concentrating
- Hypervigilance (on constant “red alert”)
- Feeling jumpy and easily startled
Other common symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder
- Anger and irritability
- Guilt, shame, or self-blame
- Substance abuse
- Depression and hopelessness
- Suicidal thoughts and feelings
- Feeling alienated and alone
- Feelings of mistrust and betrayal
- Headaches, stomach problems, chest pain

"Having no desire to seek the parent's approval, goes the longest way to healing. Tune out, the endless tape of abuse of parent statements, remembering physical and emotional trauma, and do what you can not to suffer PTSD symptoms. Figure it is the parent's mental health problem, and condition, not yours."

Do modern US Presidents such as George W. Bush and Barack Obama have to be born with, or develop, Narcissistic Personality Disorder NPD, to be head of a Police State bent on traumatizing, blowing up, maiming, and killing its own youthful citizens in unnecessary wars that the population was lied and abused into?

If you do the below, you are not suffering National PTSD Syndrome, you are angry, and acting out your anger about living in a police state. If you do something like this, you are baiting the police goons and state registered confidential police informants to be called in to alter, or even, painfully end your life. I don't recommend doing this:
