We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
ADHD was/is a fad. The diversity in people and the genetic illnesses including mental illnesses is certainly real. There are people who don't fit in well in modern society who would make awesome cavemen or recluse painters. So we study this all in great depth and come up with a name for a handful of symptoms and Viola we have a new mental disease and every school teacher with a bored child Usually a boy because boys want to be active and would prefer being in ana activity taught by a man rather than an old spinster or even a young spinster. GIVE THEM DRUGS! shout the teachers so I don't have to waste my time trying to offer them mental stimulation (Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?).
Years ago(late 90's, early 2000's) when going on my daughter's field trips, watched the boys being lined up and given their ADHD drugs, Calms them down of course,
Also learned years ago to go on ALL the children's field trips, not just the fun ones, you learn a lot as I expect COVID parents have learned in the last 2 years.
