A COMPARISON OF THE FOUR CARDINAL PRINCIPLES, CONSEQUENCES, AND OUTCOMES OF THE P/R PARADIGM VS. THE HYPOISM PARADIGM. NOTE: THEY ARE OPPOSITE AND MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE.

THE P/R PARADIGM
The Myth or Motive behind the hypoic's search within the P/R paradigm for Happiness is: My feelings are the indicators of how I'm doing. "I must change myself into a happy and successful person. I must change my feelings from "BAD" feelings to "GOOD" feelings. I refuse to feel the way I do. I feel bad because I am making mistakes. I need a therapist or medication to change this." This misconception is what causes the search for addictors and gurus, and results in addictions and misery in hypoics. Unhappiness is the HOOK of the P/R paradigm.

The four cardinal principles of the Psychological/Religious (P/R) paradigm:---Control of addiction and feelings is from the outside.

  • Control
  • Prevention
  • Treatment
  • Change
Consequences (all mostly caused by the paradigm itself): stigmatization, denial, hiding underground, demonization, bias, prejudice, superstitious beliefs, defiance, anger, prejudice, discrimination, irrational fear, poisoned attitudes, crime and violence, remorse, guilt, destruction of self and families, spread of disease, magnification of associated problems, damaging public attitudes and policies, anonymity, mass destruction and incarceration, high relapse risk, and substitute and new addictions. Ignores and misperceives other personal difficulties as psychological and unrelated requiring other treatments.
THE HYPOISM PARADIGM
The goal of the Hypoism paradigm is self-acceptance and recovery, not happiness. The realization is that the search for happiness leads to misery and addictions. Hypoics in recovery accept their feelings, whatever they are. They don't judge them. And, they don't aim to change them. This is just the opposite of the P/R paradigm and is the only way to recovery.

The four cardinal principles of the Hypoism paradigm:---Recovery is from within.

  • Acknowledgment
  • Realization
  • Surrender
  • Acceptance
Outcomes (resolution of P/R paradigm consequences): destigmatization, acceptance, out in the open recovery, particularly, early recovery, diminution of associated problems, stabilized lives and families, realistic attitudes and policies, productivity, low relapse risk, and recovery from all three areas of hypoic difficulties, not just stopping primary addiction.

The point of this page, if not obvious, concerns the inevitible results derived from the following equation, a general principle in human decision-making be it for treatment or policy decisions. The equation is:

[The paradigm behind anything dictates or equals the policy.]

For drug and other addiction issues, this becomes:

[Addiction Paradigm RESULTS IN Treatment and Policy].

Thus, under the current P/R Paradigm, current treatment and policy is inevitible. Attempts to improve treatment or policy surrounding drugs and other addictors under the current paradigm MUST fail. It doesn't matter how harmful, painful, destructive, unconstitutional or ineffective. Attempting to change addiction issues for the better under the current paradigm will not and can not be successful. Put in other words, SHIT IN, SHIT OUT. Until this principle is realized and recognized to be in effect here, we will continue to get the results of what we collectively believe to be the truth about addictions, addictors, and addicts, shit. Trying to change the shit without a change in paradigm has been and will continue to be futile. The priority of change must be switched from policy to paradigm. This is so frustratingly clear to me that I feel like screaming:

Anyone listening out there?

WHY YOU ALL ARE HOLDING ONTO THE P/R PARADIGM SO DESPERATELY IN THE FACE OF ITS OUTDATED AND DESTRUCTIVE CONSEQUENCES? I DON'T KNOW. MAYBE SOMEONE WILL TELL ME.









You can take the addiction out of the hypoic, but you can't take the Hypoism out of the addict.
