The diagnosis given to many political dissidents in the Soviet Union to justify their incarceration in asylums, where they were subjected to non-voluntary 'treatment', such as electro-shock therapy and the administration of powerful drugs. The term was deliberately vague, and reflected the idea that anyone who did not agree with the party line or criticised the USSR must be mentally ill.

This should serve as a warning to anyone who wishes to brand those who do not agree with them as mentally defective in some way.
