I am looking for a list of famous people who have had ADHD. I believe it would be great for ADHD kids to have the names of people who have overcome( learned to manage) their ADHD.
winston churchhill had ADHD he was prim minster of great britten. richard branson of the vergine recold company is ADHD
einstine was ADHD
Sir Walter Scott, Thomas Greer, and Tolkien all had ADHD.
If einstein, tolkien, and the rest, were children in American schools today, they would be forced to take amphetamines which manipulate the delicate chemistry of the brain. they would be forced to conform to the forced mediocrity of the factory school system so that ultra-mega-biotech-pharma-media-oil-food-water company profits would continue to rise, and we might never have known what greatness they were capable of.
we have heard of these people because they made amazing contributions to society. It should be noted that these are some of the best minds in human history. what if we're drugging our smartest children so that they'll fit in with the average ones?
how many long term tests have been done on these drugs?
how many children are now addicted, loyal customes of pfizer or astra-zeneca - likely to freak out if they don't get their fix?
how many of '99's school shooters were on these drugs?
answering any of these questions will probably frighten you.
we have no business messing with human brain chemistry on such a mass scale, especially when the ones driving the treatment are only trying to get rich.
"ADHD"=smart kids with personal problems.
I hope they're smart enough to know that drugs don't solve anything. weather it's a punk on the corner, or a multinational corporation selling them makes absolutely no difference. in fact, I fear the one a lot more than the other.
read brave new world.
Georg Y Bush has adhd. So does Richerd Kyanka.
Many people believe that inventor Thomas Edison had ADD, and it has recently been suggested that Beethoven had ADHD.
