Diseases, conditions, and descriptions…

Diseases, conditions, and descriptions “discovered” over the past hundred years should be treated as purely invented or the result of diseases of civilization.

The same with psychological classifications such as “type A personality”, “left brain”, “passive-aggressive” & other TED-style stereotypes). Actually I would go further: if it is not in Montaigne, it is neofake, neomania, and will go away replaced with another such classifiction.
