  1. No, I think the problem with ADHD is that the medicine is making people very rich so doctors, psychiatrists, and others in the field overprescribe this “medicine” because they are incentivized to by pharmaceutical conglomerates, therefore many times it is misdiagnosed as you see displayed on the map in the video. I have had ADHD my whole life and can tell you it is, in fact, real regardless making it into a joke or laugh does not improve the situation rather it hurts those with the actual condition by downplaying it and question its existence. More so I think this is part of the problem instead of treating those with a mental condition we as a nation would rather blame something/someone else or ignore it eventually not improving anything while still keeping the negative reinforcement that was intended to fix the problem.

  2. Your conclusion contradicts reality. Our kids believe in university. You underestimated several factors too grossly.

  3. Is there a resource on how these types of whiteboard videos are made? How to achieve the interconnected tapastry of images at the end in particular…

  4. “Operation Mockingbird indicates the CIA’s involvement in the manipulation of the news published in the United States and across the world. Today, one can identify such manipulation with fake news”

  5. I never realized the link between stimulation and education. When I think back to when I was in public school (Which wasn’t long ago, I’m currently in college lol) I feel like the system worked for me. I didn’t have a phone until I was in the middle of high school, so I didn’t have any distractions during school. And even when I had a phone I wouldn’t really use it in school outside of lunch. I was either reading or doing homework. But now, in this age of online school to covid, I can’t get myself to pay attention! Suddenly I have 3 tabs open on all times, and i’m only looking at zoom meeting my professors do 1/2 the time. Otherwise i’m surfin’ the web. It made me realize for the first time that yeah, school is boring! I’ve been trying my best to pay attention but I just can’t myself to. That’s why despite the risks i’ve been trying to get in person classes, though only 2 out of my 5 classes are even humoring in person classes, and I only need to go school 1 day a week. The other 4 days are boring online classes.

    We’re all trying are best, I suppose.

  6. 6:34 This is to skip the so-called “Brief ADHD tangent” the teachers said you didnt need to listen to, though that part is a quarter of the entire video.

  7. As someone with ADHD, the first half of this video especially is dangerously misinformed. It completely misrepresents how ADHD medication like Ritalin or Vyvanse functions by calling it an “anesthetic”. Those drugs are stimulants. Taking Vyvanse was quite literally the first time in years I was able to be truly present in my artistic ventures. Furthermore, while Robinson claims he won’t speak on whether or not ADHD is real as he is not qualified, he nonetheless proceeds to say its existence remains “up for debate” and get a laugh out of his audience by attributing a disproportionate number of east coast diagnosis to the condition being over diagnosed, and not the more likely culprit which is that Children in Nevada aren’t getting the help they need–Also, drawing the kids with ADHD as invalids drooling on themselves makes perfectly clear where the animation at least’s opinion on the seriousness of ADHD is, and the respect it feels children and adults with ADHD are owed.

  8. I remember watching this in a lecture during my 1st year of Uni…and i was absolutely gobsmacked. One of the few times at Uni where a lecture left me genuinely speechless but in a good way. This is still relevant and needs addressing imo

  9. I m watching this video thanks to a class I’m taking and it is so inspiring. Everything is so well thought and the animation was amazing. I come from France, where there literally is this culture of school is good anything else is bad – only one right answer…
    Fun fact we start school at 2 and I do remember how one day in kindergarten I dared to write in black instead of blue and was asked to redo all my exercices (pencil is for geometry but not to write with, blue is for writing, green is for correction, red is for underlining the subjects and for the teacher – anything else is to banish until high school).
