In the video they began discussing ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) that Wikipedia describes as a "childhood disease". It is "described by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as an ongoing pattern of anger-guided disobedience, hostility, and defiant behavior toward authority figures ...." And this is extremely familiar, “Actively refuses to comply with majority's requests or consensus-supported rules.”
I realized that while I am 65 years old, ODD sounded just like me! So I begged God to make whatever I have contagious. And apparently it is. YOU have it don't you?
We live in an artificial reality and if you have come to that realization, you are either paralyzed by fear, confusion, or worry or you have caught ODD.
The blue pill and its opposite, the red pill, are pop culture symbols representing the choice between the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue) and embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red).
The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, derive from the 1999 film The Matrix. In the movie, the main character Neo is offered the choice between a red pill and a blue pill. The blue pill would allow him to remain in the fabricated reality of the Matrix. The red pill would lead to his escape from the Matrix and into the "real world".
Our objective is to simply promote the feeling of liberation and unity as groups and individuals adopt the above “ODD LOGO”. We are setting up a line of products incorporating the logo. You who are willing to declare yourselves ODD will order whatever product you want directly from the manufacturer. No one will make any profit, except the manufacturer.
You can use only the ODD LOGO or you can add phrases of your own creation or ones that we have come up with. The following are phrases we came up. You will see references to "spitting". In the hope ODD is contagious we thought spitting on people might spread it faster. Okay we were working on the ludicrous actions of a Judge thinking someone who thinks conspiratorial groups must need counseling (as happened to Lauryn Hill). We even considered a Flash Mob Spitting. We also realized that ODD is the acronym “odd”.

The following is what we call our anthem without music. This is what our goals are in being ODD:
by Judith Rogers (Notes) on Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 8:00am
How important is freedom of expression
sexuality and creativity?
Why do I insist on freedom to live, freedom to die,
& freedom to choose with whom I will lie?
I want freedom to love and expand on that theme;
freedom to work everyday toward my dreams-
freedom to feed the poor
freedom to heal the sick
freedom to eat pure food
& freedom to grow it.
I want freedom to seek the truth-
Freedom to ask, & receive answers
I want freedom to speak!
Freedom to raise my children,
freedom to worship cats
freedom to communicate-
freedom to wear various hats!
I want freedom to make music, and to dance
Freedom to stir it up, freedom to act.
I demand to love Earth
& worship Her if I choose;
sharing with others how I handle the blues.
I demand freedom to protect our water supply,
freedom to demand an end to the death penalty
freedom to vote
freedom to campaign
freedom to breathe
freedom to set my people free!
Freedom to fight for & restore true Democracy
freedom to spread some good news!
Freedom to reinvent
to remember, to care,
freedom to separate myself from what snares
I want to be free to explore
a millennium and more of uncharted territory
I rejoice in the freedom to make a better human out of me!
