Re: Is it just me, or are crazy mental people on the rise in society??
It certainly seems that there is an increasing amount of crazy people. I'm not 100% sure what the reason for this is...but I certainly think the complexities of modern society are at least part of the reason. We still have a lot of caveman DNA, but we're forced to live in a civilized society...It's very difficult for some people to adjust...it defies their primal instincts. Some people are more evolved than others.

Another theory is stress... Stress can do crazy things to people. It was a simpler time 100 years ago.
 Quoting: Doc S 17983849


People like this used to be locked away and supervised, because they are insane, but no more! Your government has decided they can be given drugs by half-crazy, underpaid, burned out, overworked psychiatrists....if they are even medical doctors, and not frustrated nurses that have always wanted to be doctors, with minimal training!

Firstly, no not Hastings Street...haha. :) It just has been randomly happening everywhere, mostly on or around public transit but honestly I have taken transit for years and never encountered this level of mentalness.

I have become a gluten free vegan this past year and trying to eat a more natural, chemical-free and processed-free diet and trying to heal my thyroid condition naturally which is slowly working.

I do think I have become more aware of so many things in the past couple of years but I am a person who avidly people-watches and would have noticed strange mental behaviours such as these if they had been happening so much in the past...

I sort of feel something is up...something is coming to a head in our world and might be a good time to lay low and stay the hell out of the cities...

They shut down mental health facilaties all the time, maybe one in the area closed shop and let them all loose?
 Quoting: closing eyes


Good point, as well as others who mentioned the same thing.

I know the general public will laugh these types of people off but its going to get a tad worse as days, weeks, months progress...


I dont think the general public will be content in having mentally challenged people roaming the streets at all times of the day, if there's an uptick. As controversial as treatment is, im glad people care about mental health issues.
If theres an uptick: public health & safety will be a concern.

Re: Is it just me, or are crazy mental people on the rise in society??
I used to work as a mental health technician at a home that fosters people with mental health disabilities. Due to budget cuts, they sometimes close down mental health facilities and no joke..just cut them all loose. It happened in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a mental health facility shut down and all the mentally disabled started to walk around the shopping mall. I would be too much of a coincidence to see that many in one area.

The second option is that from experience in the afternoon, people who are mentally disabled get to go on an "outing" field trip, in which they load up into a bus or van and for a couple of hours get to go to public areas as a group. For example, in the United States if you are mentally disabled you qualify for a mental disability check. The caretaker or person who is in charge of you if you are unable to take care of yourself gives you a daily allowance from your disability check, (let's say $1-2 per day) and a field trip would be to the park, or to the mall, or to a shopping center like the dollar store to get small cheap toys or personal items.

The 3rd option is that you really just randomly met a bunch of people who were crazy in one area.

The 4th is you were on drugs. (jk)

Television, Ipods, etc. are all forms of 'mind control'.

What they ultimately do, if carried out to the extreme, is separate people from their 'better nature', which I call 'The Self'.

Society is becoming more full of people addicted to these things and, consequently, more egotistical and less aware of what drives or motivates them to do what they do.

In other words...people have lost the ability to be Silent.

And, in return, have slowly sacrificed a portion of their sanity.

Such is the dual-nature of technology.

Actually, since they are possessed by demons, they will starve and die, and nothing will become of them, except for possessing others and destroying them as well.

I've noticed this, we are medicated to the brim. I take no medicine and work outside in the sun every day. Most "regular" people seem almost as if zombies. There is intense audible stress in the voices of almost all strangers that I converse with in a day. Everything is on edge.

Funny, hiring of low IQ candidates is very disconcerting.

Most are good cops i hear? I dont think cops are that socially positive personally, they just do the job and get the check. Too many people in the world to know anyone personally nowadays.

I really dont think people will be ok with crazy people hanging/loitering around though...Or in general. If people think its ok to degrade society maybe 2 different societies will form in the future, i dunno.
I think its a more serious issue than we want to realize...

Re: Is it just me, or are crazy mental people on the rise in society??
Ok I live a ferry ride away from Vancouver. For years we head over to the city for shopping and appointments on average once every couple of months. I do not drive and take transit everywhere.

Well the last few times I have been to Vancouver, this week twice, I have encountered more mental people in public than ever in my entire life!!

Sitting on the bus and seeing a man twitching out in a seat nearby and then talking to himself about Hitler very rapidly. Another man on the ferry talking to his hand in a very animated way and every now and then telling his hand to SETTLE DOWN and smacking it and then saying sorry my dear. Seeing a man lurch around us as we sat by the waterfront dragging his leg and drooling and then yelling at his leg to hurry up idiot!
A woman kept asking us with excitement if we liked peaches while we were on transit, over and over, like every 5 minutes. And then at a bus stop a man kept raising his hands to the sky and saying WHAT? WHAT? and then punching himself and doing it all over again.

And there are more...but that was just this week! What is going on???

I seriously have never seen anything like this in my whole life and have been to the city loads...how could I have missed all of this/

And like I said for the past few months I have seen a variety of things like this but this week was on a massive increase...

Well, I see it kinda like this...

In polite society it's accepted that occasionally a deranged individual is going to cross your path. You will know them because they don't dress nicely, are low on money, and say strange things, like: "Hey got a buck I can borrow?".

Possibly they are chewing on a dead cat.

In average society, they are beginning to consider whether cats can be eaten, due to the aforementioned concerns.

Wouldn't want to be labeled as a misfit now would you...

Now, as a member of polite society, whom do you call to remove the crazy from your environment. And who is going to be seen as the crazy one, if the trends continue as they have.

1) Crazy poor guy eating cats.
2) Person who has everything and thinks that in the face of half of the population seriously considering cat eating that they themselves are seen as normal anymore.

Statism is a dangerous mental illness, taught in schools around the country. Is it any wonder absolute insanity is pervasive?
"Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based of five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, or county commissioners." - Edward Abbey

"But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist." -Lysander Spooner

"If they take the ship, they'll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our skin into their clothing, and if we're very very lucky, they'll do it in that order." - Firefly
