Is it normal to be medicated
So it seems that everything that was once criminalized or shamed is now the new normal. Doctors are so quick to prescribe pills to mask an underlying issue. We are worked to the bone and raised in a system that forces us to conform and all be the same. To sit children down for hours at a time and force feed them to learn and read material structured for their age group and if they don't pass satisfactorily, the are reprimanded. We are constantly examined and ranked and measured against one another, but somehow forced to accept ourselves and be accepting of others. Even collectively the school systems are graded and ranked accordingly and can value or devalue neighborhoods. So we are basically preprogrammed to compete with each other and jump through all the hoops. No wonder we all self medicate. It's not normal to expect 25 kids to sit still and read a book or pay attention for 6 straight hours with one teacher monitoring them all for only 30-40k/year when the average fucking home is at least $400k. And now kids are shooting their teachers. And now we're adults and the game keeps going. Get a job, pay your taxes, get a house, buy a car, get married settle down, have some kids. Why aren't you having kids? Conform mother fuckers!!!! Confoooorrrrmmmm!!!
