Hot take, but I think these people are suffering because they don't love freedom enough. If they did, they would all have had their own arsenal of guns and could have quickly or even preemptively neutralized the attacker. They really have only themselves to blame when you think about it. Sad!

Independence day shootings leave near dozen dead in US

Quote :
"At least 10 people were killed and 38 injured in three mass shooting incidents in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Fort Worth during the July 4 holiday, authorities said, causing US President Joe Biden to reiterate lawmakers to act on firearms legislation to save innocent lives."

The coverage on this seems a little odd. I can't find anywhere if they've captured/killed the shooter, and I guess it's the same guy for all three locations?

It was easy to see the direct need for the lockdowns, but they'll probably cause a comparable level damage and death in the long run to the actual pandemic

I also think a ton of covid unrelated deaths went up in people with life threatening disease, undiagnosed people, wait times, etc

think about it

drugs, depression, have skyrocketed. mental health of the future generation (Which affects their QOL forever even if they dont die)
undiagnosed diseases, lack of treatment
emergency services
general health
childhood vaccination
possibilities are endless

https://archive.ph/0gFLq

non-covid excess deaths for people under 45 were higher than covid deaths

sure, exactly deaths might not be higher, but the overall.

not saying that the lockdowns were necessarily wrong, just pointing this out

Mental health is a meme at this point. The phrase is uttered approximately every 30 seconds on social media or mainstream media. There are regular advertisements for therapy and SSRIs, the opioid crisis has really hurt small towns, etc. Big pharma obviously plays a role in this.

Anybody who has regrets or feels down at any point = ah muh mental health instead of adjusting your attitude, managing your expectations or stop seeking validation from others/outside entities.

If you think I'm an idiot for saying this, fine, but even 15 years ago nobody talked about mental health like it's some focal point of life. Universities and workplaces didn't have 'wellness days' and the suggestion of that wouldn't have been taken seriously. Why is that? What changed?

So you think we should scientifically investigate root causes of social isolation and then have academicians make recommendations in the best interests of public health in the hopes that the public will follow?

I think I've seen that script before. A concerning percentage of the populace outright rejects science and resents being informed about what's likely best for them.

I'm not saying the issue arises from some national directive, I'm just talking about the culture that our medical system has

the amount of pharmaceuticals out there

oh you have ABC, take pill1, side effects from this, take this, and so on

so much chronic illness out there, its an epidemic
the root is simply the lifestyle overall

and chronic illness is also subsequently linked to depression

https://www.forbes.com/sites/ritanumerof/2022/11/22/our-nations-chronic-disease-epidemic-is-getting-worse-so-whos-responsible/?sh=4d876ff25263

and to be honest, the science part of it is really just common sense. the issues are socio-economic and some of it is just a result of technological progress (like phones)

Quote :
"While patients are ultimately responsible for their behavior and lifestyle choices, it’s hard going it alone, especially if an addiction or other environmental, social or economic obstacles are involved-what we call social determinants of health (SDOH). They need help along the way from various stakeholders in the healthcare delivery system. Unfortunately, that support, today, is also largely missing.

For years, both in this column and in my books, I’ve been warning about the negative impact a siloed, inefficient, confusing and expensive healthcare delivery system is having on patient care.

First and foremost, we have a broken fee-for-service model that has prioritized revenue capture and lowering operating expenses to increase margins over improved health outcomes. "


^ nah, we'll be fine.

I for one am glad he got the prescription for one hot lead injection to the brain. I have no sympathy for him. Who does not hear voices? It’s called conscience. He chose to murder innocent people siding with the wrong voice. Glad he offed himself so we don’t have to pay to try to fix him.

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/10/30/us/police-maine-shooting-gunman.html

Quote :
"
The Army Reserve and a Maine sheriff’s department were aware of a reservist’s deteriorating mental health more than five months before he killed 18 people in Lewiston, Maine, according to records released on Monday. Just six weeks ago, the records show, he had grown increasingly paranoid, punched a friend and said he was going to carry out a shooting spree.

But there is no indication in the documents that any law enforcement officials ever made contact with the reservist, Robert R. Card II, 40, who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in America this year and set off a two-day manhunt before he was found dead.

The warnings about Mr. Card were far more explicit than Maine officials had publicly acknowledged in the days since the shooting on Oct. 25. They came from Mr. Card’s family members — who believed he was hearing voices — and his Army Reserve unit in Saco, Maine, and were investigated by the Sheriff’s Office in Sagadahoc County, where Mr. Card lived."
