An argument can be made that because we have better knowledge of how we as humans are "supposed" to work, that whenever someone doesn't work like we're "supposed" to we label them off as some sort of disabled person. In short, more and more people are getting diagnosed because we have more and more to diagnose them with.
On the desk example: sorry I take advantage of your stupidity. I understand honesty and morality and being ethical; unfortunately, unless you're my best friend or someone whose companionship I value, I'm not going to sell it for 50. Especially given the fact that, in essence, you're giving it to me to sell.
