With each generation, more people seem to lose it or get more nuts?
Might be there are more sensible people just like there seem to be more with ADHD and who commit suicide but I have strong doubts if it's true.
The biggest problem of the modern world is we have time to feel worried, time to think, time to feed fear, we do not work hard enough (not like our ancestors did in 1800) and... we know everything.
There's a Dutch expression (translated) "What you don't know can't harm you" and it's similar in a way to what is written in the Bible "Blessed are the poor in spirit".
Life is easier if you are not aware of everything. One person can not carry the world's misery on his shoulders. I do not see it as my task to do so.
I never believed all "they" said.
It doesn't matter if "they" were my parents, teachers, some VIP, the media, friends or neighbors. They say a lot that is not true, they love to gossip, break necks and talk bad, blame long before facts are known.
This is the reason we gave up on a newspaper at least twenty years ago, the television over 12 perhaps even 15 years ago. You will never find me gossiping with neighbors or at school and I do not check out the daily misery on the internet.
This means it's hard to brainwash me and if you question what is said/taught it doesn't make you popular.
I am a realist and always been one.
Already as a kid, I felt skeptical about given answers and tried to figure out the whole truth behind a story, saw the other side.
I know these days (the past 10 till 15 years) it's mainly fake and subjective news that's spread. Listen/read the same news in ten different languages/countries and you hear ten different stories.
