". . .capitalism is much better at creating need than satisfaction. . .when that gap opens up between what you long for and what you can have. . .when you reproach yourself for your failure to be clever or strong or smart enough to reap the bounty. . .when your disappointment and demoralization seem unbearable. . .the drugs may well give you comfort. Perhaps if the story about the drugs were told this way. . .[people] would use their new-found energy and confidence in. . .social reform." -Gary Greenberg in Manufacturing Depression: The Secret History of a Modern Disease
