How many people have killed other people and themselves while ON medication.

The cdc says about 11% of the population takes antidepressants. And yet, the murder rate in the US has been steadily declining for the last 20+ years. It is as low now as it was in the early 1960s. Suicide rates have also fallen in the US, and were lower in 2005 than in 1950, 1960 and 1970.

I don't think you have much of a case.

Excuse me——anything that compares the decades of sick Keynesian economics salted with degenerates like Kinsey and Hefner and Freud ethics——has to compare statistics to BEFORE the “sex revolution” which kicked out God and showered our children with nihilism and the Age of Relativism so they couldn’t even think straight when they reached adulthood in the sixties.

You are comparing a Godless age to a Godless age. The stats are meaningless (as Twain would state about any “stats”).

Get Suicide and Murder Rates and percentage of people on “antidepressants” from PRIOR to the sixties——when people like my father carried guns to school and never had hardly any “pills”.

...before the ethics of that Pedophile, Atheist Kinsey and sodomite John Maynard Keynes who raped little boys, and Atheist Freud’s and Hefner’s ideology was literally forced down the throats (deeply) into ALL public school children to erase morality and God with the help of Hollywood and marketing.

My point is when there is a belief in God-—there is hardly any reason for pills for so-called psychological disorders which are nothing but lack of character and lack of control over base instincts (immaturity)-—so they get all sorts of emotional trauma because of their very immature actions.

As Socrates profoundly stated: Knowledge is Virtue; Ignorance is Vice.

He meant that since ALL people want to be Happy-—they would all be Virtuous if they knew how. That knowledge-—of Excellence (Virtue)-—leads to great emotional and physical health and happiness. (no depression).

Vice destroys all chance of happiness. The psychiatric wards are filled with people who have never been virtuous. Only God gives Hope. Otherwise, there is no meaning to life and you are nothing and will have a short, brutal, nasty life or whatever Hobbs stated so succinctly when he described our world, as all atheists would.
