Anyone else think modern technology is the reason so many people have mental health issues these days? If I was born in the 1920s when there was no internet and you could only watched movies at the cinema on Saturdays, I would have so much free time to learn, think and be creative instead of being bombarded with propaganda

In the 20s you'd get mercy killed by your parents or get locked away in an insane asylum.

It has more due with wealth and prosperity. In poor countries, people focus on survival. In rich countries, people focus on made-up problems.

>its da tech nology!!

but yes unironically however it is curable. Usually I prescribe 10mg of stop being a bitch to my patients
>>
>>82644634
Oh yeah it's definitely technology that's making people miserable not economic circumstances no way man it's Facebook and their Wish ads that's making people suicidal totally yeah. People that think like you should be shot in the neck for being this utterly fucking retarded.

>>82644634
We live in the worst timeline where humans will adapt to serve the technology. As a species we're already merging with it. We will just continue merging with it in news ways going forward. Brain implants and a real time HUD projected over your normal vision are coming anon. So is the real time hook-up to big tech's propaganda server that's going to spew bullshit into your brain at all times and instruct you when to show up for the flash mob (peaceful protest).

People are coping with this in different ways.
>NPCs
The so-called NPCs think it's just fucking wonderful and will make it their life goal to obtain the highest social score possible. They love the taste of the boot.
>NEETs
NEETs have dropped out of the system but continue to depend on it. They escape into fantasy and need technology to live out their dreams (like dinner with their waifu). They accept parts of the botnet in return for this. NEETs will go along with this brave new world. All you have to do is threaten to take away their gibs and tendies.
>Uncle Teds
These people have rejected technology and "the system". They sometimes lash out against the system. They are most ineffective because one man can't do much in our current situation.

When the time comes these people will be hunted down and culled. The system has no use for them. They are the biggest threat to the system. These people think they can hide in the woods by building cabins in the middle of nowhere. All of them are going to get Waco'ed. It's impossible to hide in the forests now. The forests have some of the most sophisticated surveillance technology watching them. Between the eyes in the sky and the hidden trail cameras the Uncle Ted's of the world are pretty much fucked.

I wish we would have gotten the steampunk future instead anon. I would have settled for the 80s neon cyberpunk. Instead we're getting Demolition Man. I hope you like show tunes.
>>
>>82644634
Yes, mainly the internet. It's like a huge Skinner box. Everything is designed to be addictive, it incentives unhealthy behaviour and warps people's understanding of reality.
If you spend all your time on things like Twitter, 4chan, Pornhub and gaymes it's pretty much a guarantee that you'll damage your mind.

On social media you'll only see the best parts of your friends lives and consequently feel like shit because of it.
>>
>>82644634
Its a reason, but its not the reason. Tech mainly affects attentional issues but can also cause sociolinguistic development. Then of course there's the emotional influence tech and social media can have.
In neurodivergent people tech is more likely to cause developmental issues among other issues, but there's much larger issues than just "tech". One of the great questions we should be asking is why is there such a strong push for technological classrooms when it would seem they don't boost learning in a pre k to 12 environment? Well of course we know " one" answer, but why are teachers not against it?
>>
>>82644634
No you wouldn't. Creative people use internet to expand their creativity, they're not all that much distracted by worthless side of internet because their interest is simply focused towards things they like the most. Be it diy or programming or arts or whatever, they use internet to search for info on the topic because they like it. You never liked anything, you preferred browsing shitpost funny websites, and all of your current dissatisfaction with state of your things is your fault, not internet's. You'd find a way to waste your time in 1920 too, don't worry about it.

On the bright side, it's never too late to pick interest in something and then develop it.
>>
>>82644634
Why, yes. Sure. It's all modern technology's fault, and totally not the jews. That would be silly. Hahaha.

there's always been a shitton of mentally ill people
the only difference is now they get diagnosed
but yes I'd say mental illness rates have increased since now people are exposed to the evils of the whole world instead of just living in blissful ignorance
>>

Why are you posting on 4chan then.
Get out

Is not technology on itself, but more related on how the overlords abuse it to exert control on people by both keeping people hopeless due to living empty purposeless lives while being shown people with supposedly amazing lives non stop. The whole purpose is pacification through demoralization to create a critical mass of cattle servants.
>>
>>82645523
Tbh its good and bad. Mental health awareness has the double edge of shoeboxing, or assuming say everyone with a MHC behaves the same or needs the same things. For me I just need a solid routine and time to recharge and for everything to be in perfect order and for my house to be cleaned every time someone walks inside with shoes on and for a laundry list of customs to be followed by everyone in my presence (when at home). Its simple really
>>
>>82644634
yes, but I think another problem is, that all the people with these issues have access to each other.
In the 1920 you might have been peer pressured to parttake in society instead of shitposting with other NEETs all day. Also without the internet all the reclusive weirdos would be out of sight, out of mind

Anon, did you ever read some newspapers from the 1920s? Newspapers, or the printing press, are also technology. So is telegraphy. Or semaphores. You know, the visual ones.
>>
>>82644634
Yes, humans evolved neocortex to interact with other human beings. Tech advancements on one hand increased the number of people, making it harder to keep track of all the possible human-to-human interactions, and, on the other hand, reduced the need/scope and altered the shape/structure of said interactions.
So, your neocortex is bombarded with more, less satisfying, noise.
It's like replacing your high-protein ancestral diet with sugary fast food: both disgusting and unhealthy.

I tried to avoid it but you're just going to keep pushing this and the mod won't do anything so I'm going to ask: Why do you post this bullshit?

Do you just do it to "own the /pol/tards". If so, what will satisfy you? The board(s) are already dead and nothing is being done on them. There is no digging, there are no self improvement threads, and no one is organizing anything. It's just a bunch of bots posting nigger and a bunch of glow niggers trying to bait anons into bombing federal buildings. Why does the board continue to live rent free in your head? It has been dead and buried for nearly 2 years or more now.

Do you really believe the jews aren't part of the global elite? If so, why? Are you just too stupid to take a casual glance at the people in charge? Do you just blindly believe everything the mainstream media tells you? Of course there were jews in the 20s. They owned all the newspapers!

If you're just posting this as bait I again wonder why. You will not find anyone to actually argue with. At best you'll get some one-liner Simpson's reference.
>>
>>82644634
No. It's because modern civilization and medicine lets people that would have died in the past live and procreate.

>I would have so much free time to learn, think and be creative
lol. You can stop lying to yourself anon. The internet IS the medium that allows those things to happen. If his was the 1920s, you would be so fucking uneducated and here would be NOTHING to inspire you with the lack of information. A library isn’t going to help because information and content doesn’t diffuse at an equal rate throughout the entire world. Besides, no matter what you learn and think, you’ll still be a dumb piece of shit. You’ll never be creative because you never special in the first place

Also, it isn’t even modern technology hat people have mental health issues. It’s just social media in general that fuels people’s anxiety.

A lot of people around today wouldn't have been around in the 20s because their poor genetics (or the poor genetics of their recent ancestors) wouldn't have allowed them to pass early childhood without modern medicine.

It started with Reagan closing down the nut houses, then it got worse as time went on and those people were allowed to breed.
There are a ton of other events but remember Tumblr was the containment zone of those creatures before it died and all the freaks and losers flooded to twitter.
Add a disenfranchised generation that needs an identity to just feel anything and here we are.

Not specifically. People have kids later in life, after they've lived for decades breathing in smog, carrying a cell phone next to their balls/ovaries every day and consuming less healthy foods, among other things. Technology got us here, of course, but its poor application is the true reason.

id say its the exact opposite, people can now openly communicate their mental health issues and have tons of sources to help themselves or get help. back in the day a mentally ill person was just looked at as someone with a weird personality unless it was extreme. my parents grew up in the soviet union and both of them would have to get years of therapy to reach a point where i would take anything they say seriously as they are genuinely insane people
