The following excerpt comes from the latest edition of THE NATION. What is happening in Kansas is happening nationwide. “Suicides” are casualties in the Class War that we’re not supposed to know is going on. Because of the insidious methods of psywar, the 1% have persuaded many of us that we are failures and thus should off ourselves. Imagine in WWII, if the Nazis had successfully launched a propaganda offensive calculated to persuade us that (1) there was no war going on, and (2) that we should kill ourselves. If they had, we’d be speaking German today. If you’re feeling depressed, LIVE! Better a living rebel than a casualty statistic.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment recently released a startling report showing a 30 percent increase in suicides from 2011. Nationwide, the number of deaths by suicide surpassed the number of deaths by motor vehicle accidents in 2009, the most recent year for which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided data.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the largest increase in suicides in Kansas occurred among white males, who already were the segment of the population most likely to take their own lives. . . . . . . . Nationally, the CDC reported a spike in suicide rates in 2010 among the middle-aged, a 28 percent rise overall, a 40 percent jump among white Americans, and among men in their 50s, suicides increased by more than 48 percent.
