Your turn.
Freedom is the illusion of choice, friend. A cleverly concocted lie to keep the masses docile. Nothing more.

Can you post a picture of yourself in your wizard outfit?  Preferably by a Wal-Mart.

You asked for Obamamerica, now you are going to get it.  Stand by for suck or as Pelosi says, "Embrace the suck".

All this talk of the wizard suit makes me feel like less of a loser since I really, really, really like Tricorner hats, although unlike the OP I am not ballsy enough to wear a tricorn hat on a daily basis. Regrettably, I don't even own one.

For example to express my freedom. I shall dress in a Wizard Robe and Hat..
everywhere I go.. YES this includes Walmart.

I am truly free.. most people don't even have the mental freedom to Dress as they choose...

You don't have a psychological disorder, you're just another non-conformist. /yawn

You don't know that because you have no idea who this guy is or how he acts, all you know is he wanders about in a wizard costume which is bizarre but in and of itself, not an indicator of a psychological disorder.  It sounds like he has been under the care of a shrink and has now decided that he knows better and is off his meds.   That may be fine as he may have been misdignosed or it could be that he is severely schizophrenic or psychotic and is now a danger to himself or others. I don't know if he will truthfully tell us if I have stated the case correctly but I'd hesitate to encourage him until we know what is what.

Well, that's one of the limitations of psychology isn't it, they have to rely almost exclusively on self-reports.

I'd rather see him run in the New Hampshire primaries as Presidential candidate, just like "Vermin Supreme".

I thought the job of a "shrink" was just to let you discuss your problems out loud and maybe get medication if you have a specific problem.

COME WITH ME. OVERWHELMING POWER AND MADNESS AWAIT

THAT IS NOT DEAD WHICH CAN ETERNAL LIE AND WITH STRANGE AEONS EVEN DEATH MAY DIE

There is a broad spectrum wherein people can act and be considered 'normal'.  Then there are those who react in a certain way that confuses others, perhaps these are crazy.  Wear what you want, but if you react in a way that is off the wall, or considered overly aggressive for no reason, then perhaps you could be labeled that correctly.  From you post, you seem to be someone who is very creative, but perhaps you try too hard my friend LOL.  I believe you add to the group and I like your post and your thoughts.

peace

Clinically speaking "crazy" and "normal" aren't terms used.

There's healthy, where your quality of life is good, and you're able to function day to day.

And there's unhealthy where you're destructive in one form or another and nonfunctional.

All we have here is someone wanting to wear a wizard outfit to Walmart and a proclamation that they're going to find their own happiness.

Psychologically speaking this isn't enough to go on, but as long as they don't hurt themselves or others, and they are happy.  That's a relatively fine mindset, so long as they don't believe themselves to be Merlin or anything.

Peace does nothing to test strength

No, experts will say you're a nut because of what you are conveying - not your dress.

In my opinion, you ARE a nut but not because of what you wear to Walmart. :blush:
