Ignorance is bliss when it comes to challenging social issues

“The old believe everything; the middle aged suspect everything: the young know everything.” – Oscar Wilde

In a world in which I own my own website, yet lack the knowledge to remember my own username/password for the domain that I already own, is it any surprise that I lack the energy to walk downstairs to grab the bong? Or perhaps it is the foresight to have a universal password for monetary related units for which I should blame? I should just blame my own paranoia at certain points in my life to believe that having multiple passwords will somehow offer some sort of security cushion when in reality all it does is cause frustration. Another lesson that I probably am not running a completely optimal life. Oh well, I will just contemplate how awesome that bong will taste while massaging my joints for that venture later.

“In one study, participants who felt most affected by the economic recession avoided information challenging the government’s ability to manage the economy. However, they did not avoid positive information, the study said. This study comprised 197 Americans with a mean age of 35 (111 women and 89 men), who had received complex information about the economy and had answered a question about how the economy is affecting them directly.”

The military’s medical program has over the past decade developed a knack for throwing prescription drugs at the mental health problem – so much so that the Army now limits how many addictive painkillers any soldier can score at any one time. It’s not uncommon, though, that troops be on multiple approved antipsychotics, antidepressants and opiates simultaneously. The risks of overmedicated war machines hoarding drugs and channeling a “national psychosis,” as some have illustrated, can be as unsettling as the original problem. Between 2006 and 2009 over 100 military personnel have died accidentally due to toxic prescription-drug blends. Illicit self-medicating, the default for so many Vietnam-era troops, is falling out of favor among newer veterans. Now, the bottles are in. Vets are five times more likely to abuse pills and alcohol than weed or coke or heroin.

Suicide rates across the Department of Defense rose by about 50 percent between 2001 and 2008. Active-duty suicides topped battlefield casualties in 2009. Last March, a dozen reserve soldiers killed themselves.
