I think this post underestimates the challenge that depression poses for some people and overestimates the ability of large systems, MIT and DOJ specifically, to tailor their response to a human scale. Depression is silent; often, though not always, hidden. The kind of thing where you think you have a handle on it and then you find you don't. I'm always buoyed by stories of those who overcome these dark burdens but I'm more frequently unsurprised by those who don't. And I think it is a dangerous problem when large bureaucracies like MIT and DOJ take action without looking closely enough at the motives, objectives, and, yes, character of the individual they are moving against using laws and penalties often designed for completely different circumstances. It's a tragedy. I wish I had a better way of thinking about it. But I don't see it as ragequitting.
