Americans Are Losing It By The Millions


STRESSED & DEPRESSED

Americans ‘snapping’ by the millions

Exclusive: David Kupelian reveals record fear, stress, suicide  – and inspired way out

 

Terrorism. Chaos. Fear of the future. In the age of Obama, America is  undergoing a “fundamental transformation” – that much everyone knows.

But what few seem to realize about this transformation is that the sheer  stress of living in today’s America is driving tens of millions to the point of  illness, depression and self-destruction. Consider the following trends:

  • Incredibly, 11 percent of all Americans aged 12 and older are  currently taking SSRI antidepressants – those highly controversial,  mood-altering psychiatric drugs with the FDA’s “suicidality” warning label and  alarming  correlation with school shooters. Women are especially prone to depression,  with a stunning 23 percent of all American women in their 40s and 50s – almost  one in four – now taking antidepressants, according to a major  study by the CDC;

By the way, things are no better over the pond – and may be worse, according  to one  major study that concluded almost 40 percent of Europeans are  plagued by mental illness.

Note: This report is is excerpted from the April 2013  issue of WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “STRESSED  AND DEPRESSED: The unreported health crisis of the Obama era.”

What on earth is going on? Why isn’t medical science – and for that matter  all of our incredible scientific and technological innovations in every area of  life – reducing our stress and lightening our load? Why doesn’t the  almost-magical availability of the world’s accumulated knowledge, thanks to the  Internet, make us more enlightened and happy? Why is it that, instead, more and  more of us are so stressed out as to be on a collision course with illness,  misery, tragedy and death?

Most important, what can we do to reverse course? Fortunately, amazingly  effective help is available – but more on that later.

‘He wants people to snap’

“Life is difficult,” wrote psychiatrist M. Scott Peck at the outset of his  international best-seller, “The Road Less Traveled.” Stress, difficulties,  disappointments, accidents, disease, misfortune, cruelty, betrayal – they’re  unavoidable in this life.

Yet, during eras when society and families are stable, unified and  fundamentally decent and moral – as, say, America during the 1950s – the stress  level for each person is minimized, or at least not compounded by a perverse  society. Conversely, when – as is the case today – we have widespread family  breakdown, a depraved culture that mocks traditional moral values, a chaotic  economy and disintegrating monetary system and a power-mad government dominated  by demagogues and sociopaths, the normal stresses of life are greatly  multiplied.

Thus it has come to pass that America, long the hope of the world, has grown  increasingly dispirited and angry, which in turn breeds anxiety, fear,  confusion, hopelessness and depression.

After all, let’s face the hard facts: We just re-elected perhaps  the worst president in history, someone manifestly obsessed with dismantling  traditional, free-market capitalist America and transforming it into a socialist  nanny state. That in itself is highly stressful – at least for the roughly half  the population that still understands socialism always leads to a  profound loss of freedom and prosperity.

Then there’s today’s relentless economic pressures: high unemployment (the  actual rate is at least double that of the “official” government rate),  foreclosures and bankruptcies, a stagnant growth rate, 11,000  new people signing up for food stamps every single day, rising taxes for the  entire middle class whose net worth is simultaneously shrinking, ever-higher  prices for food, gas and other essentials – and overshadowing it all, a galactic  national debt burden, courtesy of a wildly out-of-control government  unrestrained by either the Constitution or common sense.
