Ah, I found the thread, thank you. I'm not sure why but I can't seem to navigate this site well...I have the "withdrawal symptoms" thread as a Favorites link so that I may find it again.

To are suggesting that we as a society have a "Hedonic range" in a "happiness range"? A range of what is considered "normal" for the masses? And those who do not fall into the normal range are considered "depressed" or "manic"...out of the norm..?

I can definitely see validity in your point. Of course, our society, or the society mentality is incredibly fueled by people who want our money! Advertisers, corporations, tv, Nike, Pizza Hut, etc...and we believe that what we see should be our meter for normalcy. "Kill your Television" bumper stickers HAVE a point!

So what about those whose depressive moods dip below the "normal meter"...well here ya go, we have a pill JUST FOR YOU! No problem, you just have a chemical imbalance, it's just a physical problem, we can correct this for you, no reason to feel ashamed, blah blah blah...and we believe them. We take their damn pills and we believe their propaganda. Yet our issues are STILL our issues, pill or no pill...swallowing more of that which is poisoning us.

The answer does NOT lie outside of ourselves.
