What if the great thinkers of history were alive today?

Imagine if some of the great historical thinkers of philosophy, art and science were alive today. Galileo, Aristotle, Michelangelo. In many cases their social behavior would lead to psychological evaluation.

Then they would have a three or four letter label applied to their condition and be given prescription drugs to effect a “cure”. There is a good chance their innate creative genius would be dulled or eliminated.

One then must wonder how many brilliant and creative individuals today are losing their talents to current diagnoses protocols and overmedication.
