How do you stop your voices in your brain?
The answer to this question depends on what you mean by "voices in your brain." If you mean the "inner monologue" that everyone has, the voices that mean your brain is working away, then the way to quiet that down is to learn meditation. People who meditate and learn how to relax and pay attention to the world around them, will learn to shut off the thoughts and simply "be." If you mean that you hear voices that do not seem to be your own thoughts, then you should see a doctor. Many things can cause you to "hear voices" - schizophrenia is one illness, but there are actually many that can cause this condition. Taking illegal drugs often causes you to hallucinate, and many drug addicts hear and see things that are not really there. Illnesses like schizophrenia can be controlled and treated by medication and therapy - drug addiction can also be treated, although it is harder to control than an illness like schizophrenia.

What is the difference between psychosis and schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a form of psychosis. All psychosis involves losing touch with reality. In schizophrenia this is a chronic concition which often involves hearing voices which disparage the schizophrenic or command him to do something. There are many types of psychoses. Refer to the DSM IV for more details. Schizophrenia has a genetic basis for psychotic symptoms. Mental illness runs in families. However, there are other reasons for why someone can become psychotic. The most common is drug-induced, and psychiatrists will say that there is no way to know for sure if the patient's psychosis is caused by drugs or if they have a diagnosis of schizophrenia. That's where family history is helpful, as well of drug-testing. Some people can have a psychotic episode from taking certain prescription drugs. The difference with schizophrenia is that it will not go away when the person stops taking drugs, although some drugs do have residual effects that can last for some time. The most common forms of psychosis are auditory hallucinations, (hearing voices in one's head), paranoia and delusions. Schizophrenics can also have what are called "negative symptoms", meaning that they isolate, avoiding all social interactions, stop being interested in previous things they once enjoyed, fail to keep up with daily hygiene. They may have what is called "inappropriate affect", responding to things in the opposite manner of most people, such as laughing at something serious.

What are alienable rights?
An alienable right is a right that can be signed away to someone else, usually a governing body, who can then take it away from you. Alienable rights are different from unalienable, which are inherent to all people and any contract signing them away is invalid. It is just to take away alienable rights that have been contracted away, but always unjust to take away alienable rights.
