Are you saying that there is no such thing as mental aberration? I'm not saying you are, i'm just clarifying.

Antidepressant medication was discovered by chance in the 1950s. Violence and murder have been around for thousands of years. I don't think anything has actually changed, it is the advent of social media which gives the impression that it occurs more now than previously.

I'm Certified Nuts. Ask me questions.

Everyone has some degree of mental bent. No one is completely normal.

People with debilitating, chronic illness are likely on antidepressants. Terminally ill people. They don't need added stress of being raided because they take antidepressants.


All a person in these groups would need to do to prevent being raided , is join the Progressive Liberal party. And , by the way , I fit into 2 of those groups..

Are you asking 'what do we do with failures in logic ?'

Well, reality is made of intricate relations between causes and effects. We need to have a structure of thought that is similar to the structure of reality. Reality is also made of facts, and it is not made of ideology or prejudices and biases. The best method humans have invented to investigate reality is the scientific method, which eliminates prejudices and sets the focus on facts. That is why we have hard sciences which keep improving while at the same time we often use social values and concepts which are often outdated and for some of them are thousands years old (religion, economy, politics, education, etc.).

Having a thought model that is similar in structure to the structure of reality enables predictability. That's why we are able to build constructions that last for centuries or even millennia, while social structures go from disaster to disaster (wars, economic crisis, political corruption and dictatorships, etc.).

Personally I think psychiatrists/psychologists have an extremely limited, dim understanding of mental illness. Drugs are more like a band-aid than anything else, and often worsen the situation.
