How many of your last 365 days were ones in which you felt that you were truly alive? How many?
If you are like most of Americans, you probably haven’t had even one good day. Antidepressant use is on the rise. The overall suicide rate in the United States climbed by more than 30% from 1999 to 2017.
That’s because in the USA we don’t live full lives.
We’re machines: we get up early in the morning; we go to work; we spend 8 or more hours of working with total strangers; then we go home and watch TV. We are not in charge of our lives. Others are. Those who created meaningless jobs for us; those who created dehumanizing culture that we are forced to consume. They make it very difficult for is to create our own jobs, and our own culture. They want to control us.
