Sham discipline. Unless the treatment is cbt until they’re charismamaxxed medicalizing this phenomenon is just more psychs and pharma shills profiting from social ills. If a man or woman lives in a tin box house sinking into the dirt with leaky pipes and thus walks around the earth very upset and prone to violence we don’t need a seminar, the cure is better lodging. Obviously, when deprived of a ““need”” some people will have angry and violent reactions. Or you can throw hypnotics at them until a doctor prescribes MAD.
More deviant behaviors to pour prescription drugs on. After all, the demographic split of anti depressant usage leans heavily female, we need to find a way to get more men on ssris or continue to lose billions in potential revenue.
40 fucking million people “need” stimulants to perform essential daily tasks at an acceptable level and 100 million people “need” anti depressants, please. What kind of cows are Americans, anyway? Let’s go a step beyond the tired old take of the powers that be creating intolerable material conditions. What if we take the endless expansion of intangible and invisible psychotic disorders as what it clearly is, inventing problems to sell fucking pills and therapy. Better help spends how many tens of millions on targeted ads to dupe young adults into spending half a rent payment on therapy via text message.
Some kids need Ritalin. Some people need an anti-psychotic. But not enough to support an industry of this size. How can we live comfortably when healthcare system must operate under the principles of capitalism. It’s good for pharmaceutical companies and therapists if every single person in this country “needs” a chemical lobotomy, a subscription to good health.
