Why Has There Been A 56% Increase In Suicide Among Young Americans In Just 10 Years?

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

It is very hard to face the future when you don’t have any hope. Today, our society offers more ways to entertain ourselves than ever before, but it offers very little hope. Most people spend most of their lives wandering from one thing to another looking for meaning and purpose, and of course most of those journeys come up empty. We may have a much higher standard of living than any other generation in history, but we are also have the highest rates of addiction, depression and suicide. As a society, we are deeply, deeply unhappy, and this is especially true for our young people.

How can things get that much worse in just 10 years?

Sometimes people criticize me for being “too negative” about our society. But the truth is that I am often not being negative enough. Kids are killing themselves at an astounding rate because our society is feeding them an endless series of lies and giving them absolutely no hope for the future. Our society is deeply, deeply broken, and if we continue going down the same path we are going to continue to get similar results.

According to the report, it has gotten to the point where suicide is now “the second leading cause of death” for Americans from the age of 10 to the age of 24…

Suicide was the second leading cause of death among Americans ages 10 to 24 in 2017, according to the report. And homicide ranked third for those ages 15 to 24 that same year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are absolutely astounding.

Love; structure; and limits are the "three legged stool" that generally keeps kids happy; I have seen that within my own family, and although it is way too soon to predict what these children will do for work when they get older, they will be given encouragement to do something they love, and in which they will excel.
