WASHINGTON, DC, Apr 21 — A not-so-new study that didn’t get the attention it deserved when it was published last year shows that young Americans who call themselves liberals have mental health issues. Forty-six percent of them admitted that they had been diagnosed with a mental condition.
The Pew American Trends poll also found that just 21% of “conservatives” and 26% of those who identify as “moderates” acknowledged that they were diagnosed with a mental condition.
And, according to the online women’s magazine Evie, “white women, ages 18-29, who identified as liberal were given a mental health diagnosis from medical professionals at a rate of 56.3%, as compared to 28.4% in moderates and 27.3% in conservatives.”
Zach Goldberg, the doctoral candidate who consolidated Pew’s findings, added a disclaimer to his finished product: “I didn’t write this thread to mock white liberals or their apparently disproportionate rates of mental illness [and you shouldn’t either].”
So, to what may we attribute these results? Maybe it’s because conservatives are happier than leftists, as studies have shown. In fact, Pew research over the years has consistently shown that “Republicans are likely to have more friends, better health, and more likely to be married. Interestingly, Republicans like their communities better than Democrats, and they’re more likely to feel that individuals control their successes and failures, rather than outside forces determining their outcomes.”
That’s how the Post Millennial Website put it in an article about a year ago. The same article further explained that “the left has quickly lost any remnants of a sense of humor, submerging us into a cancel culture with no place to vent, breathe or be real. If this continues, we’ll be subjected to the tyranny of the mob, fearful of authenticity and rendering us indistinguishable between man and machine.”
No wonder leftist liberals really seem to be so unhappy.
