    This is a very interesting topic. Why the hell do we live in the age of stupidity? I think about it mostly on other issues, like people who still propose price controls and things like that. A lot was learned during the enlightenment, but 2 centuries later, people, sometimes massively, just ignore all the knowledge.

    I wonder if the PUFAs or other dietary factors have a lot to do with the idiocy in the battle of ideas.

    More and more people are on SSRI's. Physiologically speaking this is nonsense. Probably more people would be successfully helped if they were on thyroid hormone and implemented some basic ideas that are being discussed here (sugar, salt, magnesium).

    Look at this: "Antidepressants to treat grief? Psychiatry panelists with ties to drug industry say yes" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...09cde6-3d60-11e2-ae43-cf491b837f7b_story.html). It's big business.

    An addendum: SSRI-Induced Indifference (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2989833/). In a nutshell: SSRI usage is associated with blunted feelings. The issue: awareness is low by both patients and therapists. Why give a substance that makes it harder for the patient to access his feelings? They are the doors to our souls that therapists try to treat.

    Sadly, some people would rather die than change.
    The elite (or whatever you want to call it) have so successfully poisoned people, their environment and the culture that the vast majority are hopelessly lost, addicted to technology and entertainment and cheap, fast food.

    It's doubtful many of them have ever heard of Broda Barnes or Ray Peat.

    Betcha though they've all heard of PSY and Gangnam Style :lol:
    15 million hits and counting on YouTube!

    You do know the official Gangnam Style video has 1.7 billion views?
