A new prisoner “…had gone to the doctor complaining of depression (no one uses the word unhappiness these days, all deviation from the state of permanent bliss being considered an illness), and his doctor had prescribed him antidepressants, as doctors almost always do these days in these circumstances.” – Theodore Dalrymple, The knife went in. Murder and the decline of our culture. Memoirs of a prison doctor and psychiatrist, London, Gibson Square, 2017, p. 86.
