7. Dealing with Oppositional Defiant Disorder is not pretty

especially if you're on the business end of their attitude.

IMO, the DSM's definition doesn't describe the half of what a kid with ODD does to his or her family and others around him or her. It's not just the kids' refusal to comply with the requests and/or demands of adults who have legitimate authority over them, e.g., parents, teachers, nor does it entail a healthy discernment between legitimate and illegitimate authority, reasonable and unreasonable demands made by authority figures. ODD describe an extreme, automatic, knee-jerk kind of defiance, to the point of mental and emotional abuse on the part of the kid towards their families (including, and especially, younger siblings).

To put the symptoms in lay terms:
Actively refuses to comply with majority's requests or consensus supported rules

Defies common-sense regulations (more often seen in the conduct of politicians, banksters, unelected corporate tyrants, and corporate hit men)
Performs deliberate actions to annoy others

Acts like a jerk for no other reason than to piss off the people
Blames others for his or her own mistakes

Self-explanatory. Rethugs, banksters, and corporate psychopaths have elevated this into an art form.
Spiteful or seeks revenge

Touchy or easily annoyed

In other words, they can dish it out, but can't take it. Fits bully-boy rethugs to a T.

Occupiers, progressives, radical moderates, and the people in general have to deal with the Oppositional Defiant Disorder of the organized crime ring better known as unelected corporate rulers; corporate bag men, a.k.a., bank and industry lobbyists; the politicians, regulators, and judges tarnished by dirty money; and the cops whom these international gangsters turned into their own private mercenaries. The authority against which they're rebelling, with violent disregard for any sense of common decency, are the Constitution, the rule of law, and the people as a whole.

So, 1%, who's calling whom oppositional and defiant?
