maybe i should post this in debate.

first, suppose that ADD really is a new phenomenon, not just something that was misdiagnosed when we (35 and older) were kids. i didn't know anyone with those symptoms, did you?

then, suppose that the massive consumption of antidepressants, antipsychotics, and a legion of other mind drugs is due to an actual epidemic of mental disorders, and not due to malicious marketing and overprescribing by the pharmaceutical industry or to a perceived increase in the stress of daily life.

given those two assumptions, isn't it interesting that the generations suffering from these problems are the children of the first generations to use drugs freely and in large quantities?
