> The hypothesis that depressive states are an adaptive strategy having evolved over the entire evolution of mankind holds largely true in my opinion( Please note I am entitled to an opion here) Any attempts to subvert such a potentialy usefull inbred condition by pharmacalogical means would in the longterm be largely ineffective, While the modest batch of lame antidepressants/mood-stabilizers and anti-pychotics we have available today may provide transitory (imagined or real)relief to a sub-set of " patients"

First off, MAJOR depressive states are about as part of our evolutionary needs as cancer. And yes, you are entitled to your "opinion" (Minor depression helped people reflect, gain important insight, and when to retrieve years ago. . This is NOTHING like MAJOR depression, though.)

Second, medications and therapies have ONLY ever claimed to be a therapeutic "band-aid" to problems. If you go on Prozac, then you lose your job and house, you will be just as unhappy as others.There is *no* cure, and I believe nobody ever has said such.

3rd, There will be better treatments, but I doubt a "cure" in the near future. Look, the point here is SYMPTOMS...tame those symptoms, and we can lead great, fulfilling lives.
