  • Lockdown Measures Catastrophic for Recovering Addicts, Mental Health

    MINNEAPOLIS—Overseeing sober living homes for newly recovering drug addicts is difficult in the best of times. But the endless shutdowns have created conditions that are challenging for healthy people, let alone those who are fresh out of rehab, vulnerable, and still reeling. Matt Royce, 35, oversees seven sober-living homes in Minneapolis. All of his houses, each holding between 9 and 13 people, have been “pretty full the whole time.” No overdose deaths had occurred in his homes in almost three years, but last summer he lost two people, while another three were revived from overdoses with opioid-blocker Narcan. Depression has...

  • Bracing For A Painful 2021: 38% Of Americans Expect To Live In 'Survival Mode'

    If nearly 40 percent of the entire nation anticipates spending the next 12 months in "survival mode", that is not a good sign for what the coming year will bring. Traditionally, Americans have looked forward to the turn of the year with tremendous optimism, but this time around things are very, very different. 2020 brought us the COVID pandemic, tremendous violence and civil unrest in our major cities, and the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Sadly, a large chunk of the country is anticipating more difficulties in the coming months, because one recent survey found...
  • A 90-Year-Old Woman Killed Herself To Avoid Another COVID-19 Lockdown. She’s Not Alone

    In a tragic irony, the prospect of another 'life-saving' lockdown has drained some senior citizens of their will to live. Assisted suicides and depression are up.An elderly woman who had experienced strict confinement and isolation in a Toronto nursing home under a previous COVID lockdown has narrowly avoided reliving that experience, although at a horrible cost. Toronto went into Ontario’s most restrictive “grey” tier on Monday, including a near-complete ban on social gatherings. Unlike many others in North America who have packed up their belongings and relocated to less restrictive areas during the COVID-19 outbreak, however, her “escape” from lockdown...
  • FEDERAL RESERVE Here are the things that scare Jerome Powell the most about the economy right now-(workers paradise)

    Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said he worries about the long-term impacts from the coronavirus pandemic. Specifically, he cited women out of work involuntarily, children whose education is suffering and small business owners who have lost “generations of intellectual capital.”Speaking at a European Central Bank forum Thursday, he said “we’re not going back to the same economy.” Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Thursday he worries about women, children and business owners who face long-term consequences from the coronavirus pandemic. Asked to name his chief concerns as the world tries to recover from the Covid-19 crisis, Powell said it’s “the risk...

    American Institute for Economic Research ^ | November 2, 2020 | Jeffrey A. Tucker
    March 28 – very early in the pandemic – an article that I felt at the time received far too little attention. “Drugs, Suicide, and Crime: Empirical Estimates of the Human Toll of the Shutdown” by economists Audrey and Thomas Duncan cited empirical literature on the human toll of economic devastation. This article forecasted more than 100,000 excess deaths due to drug overdoses, suicide, alcoholism, homicide, and untreated depression – all a result not of the virus but of policies of mandatory human separation, economic downturn, business and school closures, closed medical services, and general depression that comes with a...
  • Outcome of 2016 US election associated with poorer mental health in Clinton voters

    There were 54.6 million more days of poor mental health among adults in states that voted for Hillary Clinton in December 2016, compared to October 2016, according to a study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine. No such increase in poor mental health following the 2016 US election was observed in states that voted for Donald Trump. The increase in average number of poor mental health days per person in Clinton-voting states largely persisted in the six months after the election. Comparing states in which Trump had received the most votes with states in which Clinton had received...
  • New CDC Numbers Show Lockdown’s Deadly Toll On Young People

    The Daily Wire ^ | October 22, 2020 | Amanda Prestigiacomo
    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed Wednesday that young adults aged 25-44 years saw the largest increase in “excess” deaths from previous years, a stunning 26.5% jump. The notable increase even surpassed the jump in excess deaths of older Americans, who are at much higher risk of COVID-19 fatality. Moreover, according to the CDC, 100,947 excess deaths were not linked to COVID-19 at all. Since such young people are at very low risk for COVID-19 fatality — 20-49-year-olds have a 99.98% chance of surviving the virus, per CDC data — it has been suggested that the shocking...

    This is a very difficult article for me to write, but I definitely need to write it. All over the country, people are considering suicide because of all the bad things that have happened this year, and things are only going to get even more challenging in 2021 and beyond. This greatly grieves me, because suicide is never the answer to anything, and I wish that I could sit down individually with every person that is considering suicide and get them to understand this. Our lives are meant to be lived with purpose, passion and great joy, and that doesn’t...

    It’s not just the loss of jobs, the end of school for children or the nonstop panic the mainstream is stirring up in an effort to knock out President Trump. The COVID-19 panic is having even more profound effects on the American society. “The number of people looking for divorces was 34 percent higher from March through June compared to 2019, according to new data collected Legal Templates, a company that provides legal documents,” Fox News reported. The combination of stress, unemployment, financial strain, death of loved ones, illness, homeschooling children, mental illnesses, and more has put a significant strain...

    “The End of Economic Man” by Peter Drucker was written as an analysis of the social factors that led to the rise of fascism. The first version was written in the early years of World War 2, while updated introductions were written in the decades after the war. Drucker has a unique insight into the social factors of fascism’s rise separate from the political and economic one. What are the lessons we can learn from “The End of Economic Man”, a book considered so important it was given to every British officer school graduate during World War 2?

    They are already calling the current pandemic-induced economic crisis, “The Great Depression of 2020.” The paradigm is, of course, the Great Depression of 1929 that substantially changed the world’s model of development, signaling the onset of State intervention in the economy (the welfare state). Analysts are also calling it “The Great Jump Backwards,” because it will push the world back in time by canceling three decades of economic development. International agencies estimate the contraction in GNP worldwide at -5.2%. The Eurozone with be the hardest hit with -9.1%. “It is the worst economic recession since 1870, a devastating blow for...

    As big government makes one-size-fits-all decisions for California families, leaving kids without essential resources and their constitutionally guaranteed right to education, parents are asking, 'What does that future look like?' California students have officially kicked off their school year, but they’ve hardly gone “back to school.” Thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom, 34 counties are on the so-called state monitoring list as of this writing, meaning children in those counties are barred from attending in-person classes.In coordination with the Dhillon Law Group, a band of California parents filed a lawsuit with a U.S. District Court challenging the Democrat governor’s mandate and...

    As you send your kids off to college, you might be apprehensive about them getting killed. But if you follow the data instead of the media, you will understand that they are exponentially more likely to die from a car accident or from getting convinced to drink or shoot up drugs than from COVID-19. ... What is shocking and laughable, yet tragic at the same time, is the lack of recognition that not wearing masks (even assuming they work) is the least of the “high-risk” behavior on campuses. ... Drugs, alcohol, and deadly car crashes, unfortunately, are not limited by...

    Cracks that were already beginning to show are now becoming even more apparent as strained global relations and COVID-19 restrictions appear to have citizens wary of the nation’s economy. Now, authorities are cracking down in an attempt to prevent a full collapse of confidence in the country’s financial system. The most recent trouble came Aug. 3, as citizens made a run on the Bank of Huludao in Liaoning Province, China, according to The Epoch Times. Customers packed the lobby one day after news broke that former bank president Wang Xueling was being investigated for allegedly violating Chinese Communist Party law....

    What if mental disorders like anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder aren’t mental disorders at all? In a compelling new paper, biological anthropologists call on the scientific community to rethink mental illness. With a thorough review of the evidence, they show good reasons to think of depression or PTSD as responses to adversity rather than chemical imbalances. And ADHD could be a way of functioning that evolved in an ancestral environment, but doesn’t match the way we live today. Adaptive responses to adversity Mental disorders are routinely treated by medication under the medical model. So why are the anthropologists who...

    A week ago, on Sunday the 2nd August 2020 at 1:43pm the State of Victoria was declared to be in a State of Disaster. This was of course due to Covid-19. Between the start of February and the 2nd August, 123 people have died with Covid-19 in their body in Victoria. 123! A State of Disaster basically means that the government can use all government resources, including financial to help to alleviate any disaster. Are we in a disaster? In 2018 there were 158,493 recorded deaths in Australia, that works out to 434 deaths a day. As of the 6th...

    When being a human gets too hard, the brain will cope with psychological stress in fascinating ways. While most of the 260 million people worldwide who suffer from depression will have common symptoms, such as sadness, fatigue, disinterest and sleeplessness, an exceedingly rare few could lose their humanity completely — by assuming the identity of an animal, according to researchers at KU Leuven in Belgium. In the Dutch medical journal Tijdschrift voor Psychiatrie, psychologists described the case of one 54-year-old woman, unnamed in their case study, who was found in her garden “clucking and crowing like a rooster” — a...

    Michelle Obama has revealed she is suffering from “low-grade depression” due to worries over the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustice and the Trump administration. The former First Lady, 56, made the remarks in the latest episode of The Michelle Obama Podcast released on Spotify on Wednesday. Mrs Obama said she has been struggling with her exercise routine and sleep. “I’m waking up in the middle of the night because I’m worrying about something or there’s a heaviness,” she admitted. “I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have...
