As this post was being put together, news broke that leftist celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is dead, having committed suicide. His death is going to be one of the top stories of the day. The election of Trump to the presidency may have played a role in causing the Trump-hater to kill himself.
Let’s get back to the general topic of suicide, which is going to be even more discussed with the death of Bourdain.
Only Native Americans have a higher suicide rate than whites, as seen in the graph below.
The bar graph below shows that the suicide rate among whites is much higher among males.
Excerpt from NPR.
Suicide rates have increased in nearly every state over the past two decades, and half of the states have seen suicide rates go up more than 30 percent.
Suicide is a major public health issue, accounting for nearly 45,000 deaths in 2016 alone. That is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta decided to take a comprehensive look at suicides from 1999 to 2016.
“Suicide in this country really is a problem that is impacted by so many factors. It’s not just a mental health concern,” says Deborah Stone, a behavioral scientist at the CDC and the lead author of the new study. “There are many different circumstances and factors that contribute to suicide. And so that’s one of the things that this study really shows us. It points to the need for a comprehensive approach to prevention.”
She and her colleagues collected data on suicides from every state. In addition, to better understand the circumstances surrounding suicide, they turned to more detailed information collected by 27 states on suicides that occurred in 2015.
If you or someone you know may be considering suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (En Español: 1-888-628-9454; Deaf and Hard of Hearing: 1-800-799-4889) or the Crisis Text Line by texting 741741.
The rise in suicide rates was highest in the central, northern region of the U.S., with North Dakota, for example, seeing a 57.6 percent increase since 1999. Nevada was the only state that saw no increase, and Delaware saw the smallest increase which was 5.9 percent.
The findings were published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
Guns were the most common method used for suicide, accounting for almost half of the people who died.
Often, the suicide seemed to happen without warning: 54 percent of the people who killed themselves didn’t have a previously known mental health issue. “Instead, these folks were suffering from other issues, such as relationship problems, substance misuse, physical health problems, job or financial problems, and recent crises or things that were coming up in their lives that they were anticipating,” says Stone.
There’s the personal motivators for suicide, but there are also the cultural ones, which no MSM news organization is going to touch.
Off the top of my head, the stresses on white males have hammered us for a number of reasons, including these:
1. Gay marriage and the attack on traditional marriage.
2. Tranny bathroom rights; gender blending.
3. Affirmative action and other unfair policies.
4. Mass immigration from the third world.
5. Demonization of white males in movies, TV, and other media.
6. Globalization leading to job losses.
7. Hollowing out of the middle class.
8. College and university indoctrination against masculinity.
9. Unrelenting attacks on Christianity.
10. Slut empowerment.
I’ve probably omitted some things that create stress in the minds and bodies of white people, especially white males, but the list above is a start.
The problem is that men have no plan, no guidance in how to deal with the sh*t thrown in their faces every single day. Fighting back will land you in jail or jobless.
And so we go through life depressed, lonely, and afraid to speak out about our problems.
Ultimately, the solution to our crisis is a spiritual one.
Exactly how we grab onto a spiritual rebirth is unclear to me, but we have to start thinking about it and taking small actions in our lives.
The alternative is to kill ourselves.
