My theory is that we have made life too physically easy. When we don't have to physically work, like they did 100 years ago, to put food on the table and a roof over their heads people get depressed. Why? because their brain chemistry is off due to the lack of daily physical exertion.

Men would have more physical jobs in industry like farming, mining, fabrication, ect. They would come home from work physically exhausted. The women in the meantime would be keeping house and watching the children without the luxuries of modern things like vaccuum cleaners, washing machines, dish washers, television, ect. The lack of technology caused people to exert physical energy every day. The release of endorphins which is a natural pain killer and natural antidepressant. Without the daily release of natural endorphines, we became dependant on chemical replacements like the SSRIs, benzos, narcotic pain killers, ect. Why is this important? Because they have side effects, common ones being apathy, somnulence, depersonalization and reduced sexual desire. Again, why is this important? They don't feel the drive or need to connect and bond with another person emotionally and sexually.

And with technological advances, one can raise a child independently where 100 years ago it was virtually impossible to support children without 2 parents present.

And for the portion of young people who do not take these drugs, think about what happens to our water supply. Millions of people are on these drugs, and they rid their body of urine and feces daily. These waste products contain trace amounts of these drugs. They go into the water system that is designed to remove bacteria and the like and recycle the water safely. But what about the trace amounts of drugs? Do they have a way to remove the drugs from millions of people's urine and feces from our water supply? I've never heard of any sort of treatment process for removing them.

Also, these undrugged young people today have mostly been raised by apathetic, disconnected, legally drugged parents. So they have been unknowingly given those emotional traits in their upbringing. It doesn't mean they are bad parents-they don't intentionally sabotage their young. They were more than likely brought up in a similiar fashion and each generation produces more of these people until the healthy, emotionally stable, two parent households are a rarity.

Like I said, this is just my own personal theory from observation and research, but it has been studied:

I say the economy as well as changing job structure has alot to do with it. Back in the good ol days ladies stayed at home and men worked decent paying factory jobs that didn't require any eduction. I would so love to work a high paying job that doesn't require hardly any eduction and I would like to stay at that job 30+ years and retire with a nice retirement package.

Lots of evidence that the changes are potentially caused by Estrogen pollutants referred to as Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs). EDCs are found in products such as pesticides, prescription drugs, product additives, plastics, carpeting, furniture, detergents, synthetic estrogen in birth control pills, cosmetics and the list goes on and on.

Dr. Pete Myers, chief scientist at Environmental Health Sciences, said, "We have thrown 100, 000 chemicals against a finely balanced hormone system, so it's not surprising that we are seeing some serious results. It is leading to the most rapid pace of evolution in the history of the world."

 Quoting: George B


No, actually women are more susceptible to depression than men are and men are seeing them as "damaged" or "emotional" or they have "too much drama". They don't want someone who is emotionally unbalanced, and finding a balanced woman is too challenging so they give up. Assuming there is something to the drugs in the water thing, they would be effected by this to a certain extent. I believe more in a apathetic way.

Obviously there are the cultural factors-such as the ideas of single parenthood, multiple divorce, waiting to get married intil their 30's-that were virtually unheard of 100 years ago and are common now. It makes it more acceptable to not care, to become sedentary, to have fewer goals in life, and not having family as a priority. No one answer is an absolute cause, but I do believe that it all started with the technological revolution that started around a century ago. It has just gotten worse.

People's jobs are less physical->brain chemistry is unbalanced->taking medications to balance brain chemistry->medications have emotional side effects->young adults find relationships difficult due to emotional side effects->the importance of marriage and children disappears.

young boys are getting suspended from schools for drawing pictures of guns or having a broken pencil sharpener
in their pencil case.

nuff said

its a mix of many of those things

I dont realy blame computer games though because I havent met a kid yet who would not thrive on real world activity
if it was available.

the problem is it isnt

to many regulations to many frivolous law suits
very little chance for a successful marriage
or to be a part of their kids lives.
very little chance to even build their own business
and if they do chances are the tax man will get most of the
wealth anyway

most young men just say well F it there is a new game coming out.

i think alot see theres no fucking point. they see what society is, and actively avoid it simply because FUCK IT. you live and die. do the fuck you want.

its all a dumb fucking convoluted game that shouldnt even be the way it is.
Even if you win, youre still a rat.

as for why its young men and not women, is fucking obvious, because women have life on easy mode. not to mention almost 100% of women in 2013 are completely fucking brainwashed sheep.

I think this generation has more "wants" than previous generations so, they may think it's harder to achieve those wants.

My husband is a MAN, he feels if I have to work, he's not doing his job. Men like that are few and far between nowadays because so many women have lost their true value. They don't know how to make the role of a "stay-at-home" a job, they've become too egotistical to find satisfaction in the role they were designed to play . Feminism is the root of everything that's wrong with society today. SAD...

Also, check out some of Dr. Tent's youtube videos, including The Killing Fields about 17 minutes into that video he talks about how the electromagnetic radiation (EMRs) from playing video games on your lap, heavy use of cell phones, etc. are changing our boys and making them more frail.

So you think the drugs and chemicals have been more selectively harming the males(i.e. female hormones) over females coupled with the proximity to more electronic contamination due to male predilection to play with such toys????coffee4

young boys are getting suspended from schools for drawing pictures of guns or having a broken pencil sharpener
in their pencil case.

nuff said

its a mix of many of those things

I dont realy blame computer games though because I havent met a kid yet who would not thrive on real world activity
if it was available.

the problem is it isnt

to many regulations to many frivolous law suits
very little chance for a successful marriage
or to be a part of their kids lives.
very little chance to even build their own business
and if they do chances are the tax man will get most of the
wealth anyway

most young men just say well F it there is a new game coming out.
