Lance Morcan | 2091 comments Excerpt from The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy:


In the 1940’s, the government of Quebec, Canada, in league with the Roman Catholic Church, began falsely certifying thousands of orphans as mentally ill and confining them in psychiatric institutions.

Why? The short answer: money.

It happened during the tenure of Quebec Premier Maurice Duplessis in the 1940’s and 1950’s when a change in government policy saw higher federal subsidies paid out to hospitals than to orphanages. One shameful result of this was indecent numbers of healthy children were hastily diagnosed as psychotic to capitalize on the increased subsidies.

As CBC Canada reports on its CBC Digital Archives site, the diagnoses were always swift – the children went to bed orphans and woke up psychiatric patients.

Here’s excerpts from that report:

“Some children allegedly endured lobotomies, electroshock, straitjackets and abuse. For the rest of their lives they would struggle to bring attention to their story and demand compensation. They called themselves the Duplessis Orphans.

“Born out of wedlock and deemed “children of sin,” thousands of Quebec children were cut off from society and sent to orphanages… Many were improperly diagnosed as mentally incompetent. The diagnosis would be a lifelong sentence; the orphans endured a difficult and sometimes abusive childhood…the orphans…have organized and are seeking compensation. With each day, more and more people are coming forward with claims of abuse.”

Among those survivors seeking compensation, some have asked the Quebec government to exhume bodies in an abandoned Montreal cemetery thought to hold the remains of orphans subjected to medical experiments. The survivors are pushing for autopsies to be performed.

Thank you, Lance, much appreciated. My blog that you and your readers might resonate with most is The Engineering of Society. http://engingeeringsociety.blogspot.com/.

My goal with it is to shake people out of believing what they're told by newscasters and other manipulators of belief who have an agenda. I'm going through falsehoods and hoaxes and the methods of propaganda and conditioning, beginning with the basics.

Once people new to the concept realize they've been misled, they can learn methods to be less gullible and to love letting go of old beliefs and embracing more accurate ones.

If you, James, or any of the people in this group would like to write a guest blog post on subjects such as you address Forbidden Knowledge, I'd be thrilled.

Mayank, there is a substantial number of articles on the subject online as well as this book available at Amazon- Collusion : The dark history of the Duplessis Orphans.

Paul Sayers Some years ago there was a TV movie about the Duplessis Orphans.

Made in 1999.

Here it is, in French: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0220893/

There's some new stuff on Youtube now.

The children - who were born out of wedlock and so viewed by the Catholic worthies who ran the orphanages as "children of sin" were treated as less than human, as property, as slaves, probably as scapegoats, punished for their "sin" of having been born, probably ritually abused I suspect, likely surreptitiously molested, raped, likely enslaved and even starved to death (we can get dark, imagine the worst, they were those times). So being sent to a psychiatric hospital may have been a bit of a junket for good children.

Tell me I'm wrong. I've no proof, so tell me I'm wrong. Don't let me even think that the worst could be possible -

In Ireland mass graves have been discovered. The children were tossed into charnel pits.

http://eideard.com/2014/06/06/roman-c...

The innocents were denied even the dignity of a Christian burial, and that, under the Church.

In Australia, and in Ireland there have been emerging stories of despicable abuse of children through the Catholic Church. I suspect it is a deep Commonwealth thing, if not worldwide, anywhere the Catholic faith has morphed into some unholy perversion.

JoAnn Stevelos (JoAnnStevelos) So unsettling but not surprising. I will definitely read this book! The NY Times recently published a beautifully written article "The Lost Children of Tuam"--quite similar circumstance --https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...

"From 1940 to 1960, the Canadian government in Quebec, in conjunction with the Catholic Church, falsely diagnosed thousands of children with mental illnesses, so they could be placed in institutions run by the Church. Many of the orphans were forcibly taken from their mothers by Catholics because their parents were unmarried. In addition, many of them were abused, and some may have been medically experimented on."
