the pharma companies advertise average feelings of sadness that back in the 1940's where consideredd basically normal conditions. If you take a look in the 1950's in their advertisements for drugs for anxiety and mental tension, they advertised barbiturates, meprobamate, dexedrine, and the new antipsychotic medications that where released in the 1950's and where used for average day problems. People went and still go to their doctor and descibe feeling sad, or nervous over things that are suppost to be felt. These advertising drugs to cover up things that are suppost to be normal to the human psyche, but people don't want to deal with reality. The docs can be vary big enablers...precibe narcotics, everything and see nothing what they are doing is wrong or not ethical. Its been happening for about 60 years now. It started with the Miltown advertisements for stay at home moms who got nervous when their kids woulndt shut up. You get what I'm saying?
anyways, i shouldnt really be hypocritical because I do seek out other substances to numb bad consequnces that have happened to me...
anyways....yea it will happen in the future, they will just modify it into terms that make it look new again.
I am not a scholar but I do understand distress.
