Suicides Up Among Middle Class
In a culture where people are told by the postmodern Left that the world and their lives have no meaning, we should not be surprised at this report that suicides among the middle aged population is up. The report doesn't say, but I would not be surprised if most of the suicides are among the college educated, as they are the ones most exposed to the postmodern Left's nihilistic ideology. This is only one of the symptoms of what I have been talking about lately, particularly in light of Lou Marinoff's book The Middle Way. This is evidence that there is something poisonous in our culture. There is little doubt in my mind what, exactly, that something is. We have to believe our lives have meaning, and that we crate value in the world. But how can you do that if you don't believe in either meaning or value?
