In the early 1940s, as a young teenager, I was utterly appalled by the racist and jingoist hysteria of the anti-Japanese propaganda.

Our information network is much better protected than our railroad network, and someone who cracks a system is able to cause far less human damage than someone who derails a train.

Charles Platt

I’m way bigger than people think I am. I’m way bigger. I’ve been underrated all my life, and that’s fine. I have privacy. I can walk the street without being hassled. I can be a regular guy.

Jim McDermott

I have stood on the front lines of the health care system as a doctor, patient and concerned parent.

Honesty works against you in the entertainment field. I try to be a journalist and a documentarian, but that doesn’t mean that people are going to embrace it at the moment. The point is I’m leaving the mark of my hysteria and the political hysteria, and that’s it… I can only do what I do.

What is Hysteria?

Colloquially, hysteria means ungovernable emotional insanity and can refer to a temporary state of mind or emotion; however, hysteria was considered a diagnosable physical disorder in females, starting in 1900 B.C., and then changed to a mental condition in the 1500s.

Many prominent psychiatrists like Sigmund Freud and Jean-Martin Charcot devoted work to patients suffering from hysteria. Most Western medicine doctors do not actually recognize hysteria as a medical diagnosis.

Hysteria’s umbrella classification has been divided into a variety of medical types, including autism, histrionic personality disorder, conversion disorders, dissociative disorders, or other conditions.

Additionally , social anomalies, such as choosing not to marry, are no longer considered psychiatric conditions.
