    Let's look at the actual diagnostic criteria for Oppositional Defiant Disorder:
    Quote
    DSM IV

    (cautionary statement)

    A. A pattern of negativistic, hostile, and defiant behavior lasting at least 6 months, during which four (or more) of the following are present:

    (1) often loses temper
    (2) often argues with adults
    (3) often actively defies or refuses to comply with adults' requests or rules
    (4) often deliberately annoys people
    (5) often blames others for his or her mistakes or misbehavior
    (6) is often touchy or easily annoyed by others
    (7) is often angry and resentful
    (8) is often spiteful or vindictive
    Note: Consider a criterion met only if the behavior occurs more frequently than is typically observed in individuals of comparable age and developmental level.

    B. The disturbance in behavior causes clinically significant impairment in social, academic, or occupational functioning.

    C. The behaviors do not occur exclusively during the course of a Psychotic or Mood Disorder.

    D. Criteria are not met for Conduct Disorder, and, if the individual is age 18 years or older, criteria are not met for Antisocial Personality Disorder.

    I don't really see so much to get upset over here, especially considering that a positive diagnosis still isn't the same as being "adjudicated mentally defective".

    You are right in your conclusion, I think.
    I posted this more as a WTF, although the background on Soviet psychiatry was interesting---as well as the stats on the dollar amount and quantity of drugs prescribed (if accurate)

    (although symptom #4 could be describing some of us  :whistle)

    I got 2/8.  Not bad...   :hmm  My uncle would get a full 6/8, with the remaining two very much up in the air. :facepalm

    I can definitely check 2,6, & 7. Maybe 3.

    Lucky for me, B does not apply.

    I hit 2 pretty good.  I don't hit three only cause I don't go places that have requests or rules I don't like.  So I guess that might count.  B doesn't apply.

    But, I do agree that we are all a little nuts.

    Does it say for which authority is in power?

    SJW is not a synonym of "leftists" or "liberals". Left-wing and right-wing positions are based on economics. SJWs are left-authoritarians which means that they are not liberals. Don't paint all leftists or liberals with the same (misguided) brush.

    Depends on how, and by whom, the term "often" is defined, eh?........  With that noted-

     I can be accused of 2,3, and 6 on occasion, and rarely 1 & 7.  Gave up on 8 a long time ago- It never really accomplishes anything besides spiking my blood pressure.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries
