Or, do we just prefer sedation to persevereance? I am disturbed by this due to a recent development with someone close to me. When my son was little, I thought he was “extremely busy” but I would not have wanted him to lose that healthy, active alertness!
I urge you to read the linked article in its entirety. It covers a range of facts and concerns regarding the psychotic drugs being prescribed and dispensed at an unfathomable rate.

…”And what exactly does “rare” mean in the phrase “rare adverse events”? The FDA defines it as occurring in less than one in 1,000 people. But since, according to an Associated Press report, about 19.2 million prescriptions for Effexor were filled in the U.S. alone in 2005, statistically that means thousands of Americans could experience “homicidal ideation” – murderous thoughts – as a result of taking just this one brand of antidepressant drug…

The only society that can stand to allow such boys to grow as men are free societies where self-discipline is a virtue and reliance on others a vice. It is here they can produce and win, or try and fall short, to try and try again. Those are the only things that do seem to completely absorb their energy and make it a positive value.
