Do you mean "depressed" or "oppressed"??
Well, I've always said "when one person's rights are violated, everyone's rights are violated" - so that's what made me ask. As for depression, I am, unfortunately, an expert.
Well... any illness makes people lose freedom... It means people have to take all their time looking after the person/people. So I don't think it is just people being depressed.... That is if I have understood the question correctly.... :L
"No one is free, if people are depressed". Well, it's a true statement. What thoughts are you looking for?
