We forget all the time that the DSM is a political document and that diagnoses are but one metric the government uses to organize the populace into groups it can exploit. These metrics can also be used to gauge how will policies are working or not. Your diagnosis goes straight into the computer system and straight to the CIA, or whatever department is responsible for keeping track of the metrics this week. Could be a university somewhere.
I'm sorry but I cant swallow this.
