Diogen's anecdote reminded me of a elder brother whose anxiety was so severe he couldn't talk socially to anybody, he would give parts and public talks but don't ever say hello to him.
Another ekder brother who had bipolar and he would be manic and paranoid one meeting and sat in the back room in the dark the next.
Now, I don't have a problem with people in postions of authority who also suffer with mental health issues that's not my point my point is these men sat in judgement of others made decisions that affected other peoples lives and their mental health conditions definitely affected how that judgement was made, depending on what mood they were in that day.
Interesting to note these men were appointed after their diagnosis. Real scratch the head moment at those announcements I can tell you.
