Interesting – 10 different definitions of the word DEPRESSION – covering 3 areas of Human Existence – the physical, the social and the emotional. Imagine that we had no word for all those definitions – I wonder if the Entity DEPRESSION would cease to exist if there were no definition for it?
It’s kind of like the question: If a tree falls in the woods and there is no-one there to hear or see it fall, has it actually fallen? Would People stop being Depressed if there were no definitions for DEPRESSION? Is it the definitions that have created the Entity? If that is the case I vote that we erase all Dictionary entries covering any of these definitions. Yes, that is definitely an area where I would advocate the strongest censorship possible. Depression is the very negation of Life. It should be abolished immidiately as something both invasive and evasive. I wonder if we could get the UN to add an article to the UDHR: Article 31: “All men, women, children and non-humans have the right to live life without being bogged down by or in any of the definitions of DEPRESSION put forward in any dictionary.

Now, that would be an UDHR article everyone could agree to, wouldn’t it?

    I agree 🙂 Except for that the UDHR cannot say that people have the right to live without fear, depression, hunger or so, because no-one can make you feel anything, and no-one can stop you from feeling anything. I wish I could remove both yours and my depression. But “every person has the right to not be afflicted by depression in any meaning”. That sounds good 🙂
    Add the bullying clause too LOL

    I suppose that wording is good too 🙂

    As long as it’s entered into the UDHR I am for just about any wording that establishes this as a Human Right.

    And YES, there should be something about bullying too – oh now you have given me a Topic to blog about – bullies…
