Kids Committing Suicide Because the Place Sucks - Change My Mind

 Young people are committing suicide more than in the past. 

According to the CDC (yea well) ...

"Suicide rates increased 33% between 1999 and 2019, with a small decline in 2019. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.3 It was responsible for more than 47,500 deaths in 2019, which is about one death every 11 minutes.3 The number of people who think about or attempt suicide is even higher. In 2019, 12 million American adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.5 million planned a suicide attempt, and 1.4 million attempted suicide.4

Suicide affects all ages. It is the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-34, the fourth leading cause among people ages 35-44, and the fifth leading cause among people ages 45-54.3

Some groups have higher suicide rates than others. Suicide rates vary by race/ethnicity, age, and other factors. The highest rates are among American Indian/Alaska Native and non-Hispanic White populations.3 Other Americans with higher than average rates of suicide are veterans, people who live in rural areas, and workers in certain industries and occupations like mining and construction.5,6 Young people who are lesbian, gay, or bisexual have a higher rate of suicidal ideation and behavior compared to their peers who identify as straight.​7"​

Suicides likely went down in 2019 because Donald Trump had the country for 3 years and things were improving.

Since we can't ask the kids otherwise, my personal theory is that kids are committing suicide ​because of bullying, social media bullying, parents creating weak children, and first and foremost because kids are totally immersed in bullshit from the outside world but not least of all by parents and teachers.  Add in an increasing lack of structure in their lives.

Bullshit about the climate, racism, education, news, advertising, and most everything else.

If they're white they're being told that the problems with blacks and the climate are their fault because they are white people living in a capitalist society.  In addition, people, especially kids,  need structure in their life and they find themselves living in a world where there is little structure left.  Crime is welcomed in many areas, music sucks and is often immoral, untalented, and uninspiring.   Yesterday we had the Beatles love songs - today you got Cardi-B's wet ass genitals.

Their parents are dragging them into the disgusting world of politics.

Before they even have any grip on gender, teachers are telling them they may not be what they think they are. They might be a boy, a girl, or a beautiful jellyfish.

Vermin are running around all over the place raping, murdering, and worse. 

If the kids are girls, tranny boys are invading their bath and shower rooms and sporting competitions and this is all welcomed by everyone else involved.  If they walk off the field there is a good chance they'll be punished in some way.

When they go out of their house they are surrounded by people dressed like bums who are heavily tattooed to look like the inside of comic books.

When they watch TV, they are bombarded by drug commercials telling them that later in life they likely will be afflicted by any number of debilitating health problems and the drugs to treat these problems are likely to cause other problems via listed side effects.

Celebrities and media and some teachers tell these kids that because they are white, they suck.

A wide collection of idiots across media and entertainment tell them the world isn't going to be around much longer because of global warming. Many believe this nonsense.  

If they're growing up in some section 8 hellhole, they see their future all around them in the form of gangbangers, S. Detroit a prime example, but many more cities around the country.  This is LBJ's great society that he stole social security $ to create.

Any kid with half a brain is saying to themselves all day long "WTF".  I think the task of getting around all this is just too daunting for lots of kids.

Parents need to get a grip.  

Whaddya think.


  1. All true but the problem is "they" don't care because this is by design.

  2. I just had this conversation with a friend recently....there is no doubt about it, though I don't think it's "by design"....gad.
    Orson Bean's granddaughter died of a Fentanyl laced dose of heroin; what the heck is a beautiful, really smart 28 year old girl doing HEROIN for? The family's devastated.
    AND, a distant cousin of mine was 28 when she died of a heroin overdose last week...HEROIN? This was our conversation; WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR YOUNG PEOPLE THAT THEY NEED HEROIN SO BADLY?
    that's the question...........and Kid, you pretty much cover it here.

    1. Z, I do think it is by design. The democrats have been working this for decades. They want "America" to be gone and replaced with... What.

      Thank you. This stuff creeps up on you, but when I think back to my younger years, say from 0 to 60, there wasn't any of this bullshit going on. Well, I can't think this stuff happens by itself. ??

    2. It's by design.
      It lessens the population so that there is food for those that matter.
      It sets the stage for Bring Back Better Great Reset.
      Ya gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet.

    3. Ed, I know the depopulation people of whom there are many and are powerful, are dead serious.

      The dems have managed to fubar everything. The dems sure are good at fubaring things.
      I wouldn't point to getting kids to commit suicide. I see that as an unanticipated side effect of everything else.

      In 25 words or less, the dems took a good economy, bet employment numbers of all groups, especially black and women Ever, took oil independence, a thriving economical business environment and destroyed it in a matter of months.

      And imagine the people who think things are great, or simply don't even recognize what's going on.

    4. Z, Honestly, I also wonder what's up with the heroin and fentanyl. Maybe some are using it for suicide.

  3. Children are not allowed to be kids anymore. The worries of the world are placed upon them without the capacity to moderate the impact in their thinking. Parents? Narcissists in many cases. I agree, drugs play a large part and wonder too how many should really be called suicide.
    We won the lottery..the best time to grow up and in the best country.

    1. Spot On Bunk. And I didn't even mention the ADHD drugs...

  4. In August, I did a post for Bunkerville titled “Saving Our Children.” It touches somewhat on your excellent observations in this post — which is mental instability and the painful realization that rather than addressing it responsibly, the “adults in the room” are feeding it. The conditions that lead children to suicide today are the same conditions that produced low-life drunks and dopers (you could purchase laudanum from the local Chemist in the early 1900s) for around 80 years following the Civil War. As with the social conditions “back then,” no one seems to care today. Not really.

    Darwin introduced us to the science of evolution. In his, On the Origin Species (1859), Darwin used the term “natural selection.” Herbert Spencer (a biologist and social scientist) later suggested the use of “survival of the fittest,” which Darwin later preferred and began using himself in lieu of “natural selection.” The difference was that Darwin was writing about all species of life, while Spencer focused on the human species. So, over many years, Darwin ends up with a bad rap for “social Darwinism,” when Spencer dreamed that up, not Darwin.

    No one today likes the idea of “social Darwinism,” no matter who came up with it — but in light of our disastrous society today (in the US, UK, most of the western civilization), and particularly as we may compare those examples with the societies of other cultures, we may begin to find answers to some of our more perplexing questions ... such as suicide rates across all age groups, the percentage of drug addicts in all age groups, the number of alcoholics, people on anti-depressants, people on Ritalin, people with adult attention deficit disorder, medicated or not, bi-polar people — the list is already too long.

    As you’ve said so well, we know that nearly everyone in our society is “in denial.” We refuse to admit that our education system is destructive to mental health; we pretend that modern children have good mommies and daddies when a large percentage of parents are shit. We think of our medical system as a savior, but it can’t be that when we have doctors recommending sex change operations for children under the age of six. No one is getting help from their local pastor.

    In 1950, Bobby, the out-of-control, wiseass, loudmouth, schoolyard asshole, got his ass whipped by other kids who were tired of his crap. In 2021, we just give Bobby another shot or a pill, and he’ll settle down until he needs another dose. How does this help Bobby? How does it benefit society? How does it help to lower the crime rate or the prison population? You see, it’s only a matter of time before Bobby becomes some other prisoner’s love-muffin, after he stuck a knife into a passenger who was minding his own business while traveling on the EL.

    Look, if “we” have no problem sitting back while Planned Parenthood murders millions of black babies because they’re black, or millions more white babies because their parents are trailer trash, then we should have no problem with a discussion about natural selection, survival of the fittest, and suicide rates. I’ll cut to the chase (finally). Is it better to have a nation of 330 million psychopaths, or would it be better if the psychopaths offed themselves and left the rest of us alone? Which is kinder toward our children: making them addicted to Ritalin and confining them to adult life as a McDonald’s employee, or letting them find their peace?

    1. Mustang, as always, I appreciate the color and depth you add to my simplistic thoughts. Growing up I knew several Bobbys. In my case, they were all children of single mothers who were by and large widows rather than women who got preggo out of wedlock. They were screwed up to the man in varying degrees from just being assholes to being criminal assholes. I concluded the reason for this was because Dad was not around to tune them up on a regular basis. Some things simply don't work. Single parenting is one of those things and look at all the single parents we have today and for a couple decades or more with no end in sight and a guarantee that this will only get worse.

      As you say we now have Bobby running around doing his nasty and rather than being tuned up when they do things that pretty much guarantee them being a major problem to society and themself, they are encouraged. In the extreme case, the parents are arrested, or the child removed from the home when the parent does try to deal with the little dipstick.

      Now look at all the people flooding over the border, let alone that we import on our nickel that don't have the slightest clue of what American culture and society is supposed to be. Not that they'd care anyway. The worse it gets the faster it gets worse I'm thinking.

      Well, it's still pretty much America where I live in Ohio but hard to ignore the decay all around me.

  5. YES.

    And I liked this, "In addition, people, especially kids, need structure in their life and they find themselves living in a world where there is little structure left."

  6. Kid, you could not say it any more succinct and straight forward. You hit the head of the nail square on and the nail rang true! Children may not have the wisdom and discernment that you and I and a few dozen thousands of OUR friends may have, they know something is very wrong and it scares them, scares the hell out of me too... We truly need to take back our civilization and if have to deport these undesirables to the floating plastic patch in the middle of the Pacific. Fish and sharks gotta eat too. Barbaric? Yes. These people are irredeemable and no use or function to a normal Western Civilization and to our young charges.

    1. Thank You Cederq !

      OH, I like the floating Pacific Garbage Patch relocation program.

      Or even send some of them to the Middle East as gender study and feminist missionaries to.

      I think kids are very smart when it comes to this kind of BS.

  7. A friend lost his son to suicide last year. I blame the closed school, the closed gym, the closed football and lacrosse fields.
    I blame the powers that isolated him for a year and won't accept any blame.

    1. Anon, Sorry to hear that. I agree with you.

      I've had lots of young people telling me things like "the world sucks", and it's for reasons like this. We never thought the 'world sucked' when we were growing up. Kids need to have things to look up to, things to aspire to. Just isn't there for lots of them these days.
      Democrats fubar everything they touch, been doing that for decades. Not that the repubs are much better.
