This is absolutely true. Most of my life I "suffered from depression". I think that a lot of the common neurosis we see today is the result of programming malfunctions.

I drifted through my life with an nagging feeling in the back of my head that something wasn't right. I coukd feel it on a visceral level, but couldnt identify it. It wasnt until my 40s that I figured it out. I think things like depression, anxiety disorders, ADHD, OCD, are either caused or exacerbated by a subconscious rejection of social engineering.

Teenage angst, "oppositional defiant disorder", generational rebellion, I think are a rejection of the manufactured social condition known as (((adolescence))). (https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/articles/199501/the-invention-adolescence)

The (((progressive))) infantilization of society, encroachment on parenting by the state, and diluted rites of passage, have created an environment that makes mass mental illness inevitable. Add in the dopamine hit that comes from social validation from mental illness, and you've got yourself,a shit storm. But don't worry. We have a pill for that.

After understanding the mechanisms behind what I was feeling, I made the slow journey out of the cave, and now enjoy my time in the sun.
