Revolutionary thought of the day:
This war is murder, this conquest is robbery... If this war be called patriotism then blessed be treason.

Clarence Darrow, 1898, on the Spanish-American war

From Gary Greenberg, 'The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry':

"...[D]octors...today diagnose with Hoarding Disorder people who fill their homes with newspapers and empty pickle jars, but leave undiagnosed those who amass billions of dollars while other people starve...."

He continues in the same mordant vein: "...[T]he suffering inflicted by our own peculiar institutions, the depression and anxiety spawned by the displacements of late capitalism and postmodernity...[create] markets for a criminally avaricious pharmaceutical industry."
