This is the flip side of how Rightwing Extremists Are The Happiest People In America. Americans are dying of loneliness. This misery is undoubtedly related to the progress we have made in increasing the level of divorce, drug addiction and suicide in the 21st century:
“Social isolation is a growing epidemic — one that’s increasingly recognized as having dire physical, mental and emotional consequences. Since the 1980s, the percentage of American adults who say they’re lonely has doubled from 20 percent to 40 percent.
About one-third of Americans older than 65 now live alone, and half of those over 85 do. People in poorer health — especially those with mood disorders like anxiety and depression — are more likely to feel lonely. Those without a college education are the least likely to have someone they can talk to about important personal matters.
A wave of new research suggests social separation is bad for us. Individuals with less social connection have disrupted sleep patterns, altered immune systems, more inflammation and higher levels of stress hormones. One recent study found that isolation increases the risk of heart disease by 29 percent and stroke by 32 percent. …”
Liberalism is a disease.
It promises freedom, equality and individual rights. In reality, it is a solvent that undermines and destroys all types of collectives whether it is religion, families, cultures, communities, ethnic groups, traditions or nations. It brings about a condition of extreme social atomization and alienation. Everywhere you find liberal democracy you will find that the underlying culture has gone into decline.
Human beings are not meant to live under this perverted social order. As George Fitzhugh observed, the desire to escape from this unnatural state is what generates all -isms. These people try to marginalize us by labeling us “racists” and “Nazis,” but it has dawned on us that something far bigger is going on here. Thanks to these “humanitarians,” we now live in a world where millions of people no longer have a sense of identity, strong morals, friends, a spouse, children or stable employment.
No matter. In this Sweet Land of Liberty, they have the iPhone8, a Samsung flatscreen television and Netflix. In the place of traditional morality, they have substituted the dogma of political correctness. They abort their children and replace them with pets. They dump their elderly parents off on retirement communities where, sadly, “your world dies before you do.”
Some of us will always sneer at their smug sense of “moral superiority.” Behold, they have created a world where their fellow citizens would rather kill themselves than go on living.
