Why does depression seem to be such a huge problem among radicals?

Most lefties I meet have either drug habits or take some type of medicine. And they're usually miserable and kind of prone to having episodes.

I gave up on medication when it made me indifferent to music. I'd rather live depressed than not feel something for the art that I've always loved.

I think a lot of people will say that leftists are bleak and depressed because they see the patterns in history and see the world for what it is, but I suspect it may be the other way around.

Perhaps the reason we went searching for the answers we've found is because we wanted to know why there seemed to be so little joy in the world for us. Perhaps our melancholy insulated us, kept us from finding solace or satisfaction in easy answers and comforting lies.

I was suffering long before I was a socialist.

Fucking this, I was in a way worse state before becoming a communist. Marxism actually helped me make sense of why the world is the shithole that it is. It meant I started directing my anger rather than being a self hating little bitch.

kek, that's what the comfy living standard of the First World does to you. All needs fullfilled = being a consumerist pig that's kept busy with wageslavery. Plus you don't need to look into the faces of those who suffer under capitalism.

Just go to Africa, South America or whatever, plenty of "mentally healthy" people with a stable life became radicalized.

Resentment causes mental illness. While some people are genetically predisposed towards mental illness or simply born with it, the material and cultural (sorry Marx) conditions will cause the resentment and in consequence the mental illness.

Repressing your homosexuality does this, or at least I experienced it and had many of my buddies experience it through their 20s. At 30 most finally came around and embraced it, doesn't mean you have to be flamboyant or overcompensate, just get it out to the world that you like men. Guarantee most of you will feel better.

Or date a chick and fap to guys. Eventually you might get into girls.

Remember that homosexuality is a mental illness that only has been removed from the ICD because of political correctness and IdPol.

It's probably that radicals are typically those disaffected and dissatisfied with society. It should be no surprise that they are miserable. Drug habits and medicine may be used to mitigate the misery.

What purpose would radicalism serve to someone who is entirely satisfied with life? Justifying the risks becomes more difficult if you feel you have more to lose.

Yeah, I think it's this. There really is a confounding variable in the correlation between leftism and depression, and that's an extreme sense of skepticism – especially in a society which has labeled the radical left is extremely taboo.

The Leftist has enough skepticism to respond to "communism is responsible for the death of 60 million people and they're evil," with wondering if maybe communists are the good guys. It's this kind of analysis of things that most people just "assume," that is also co-morbid with the over-analysis and constant existential discontent of depression.

Andrew Gray

depression and your susceptibility to it is biological and mediated by genetics

so to say "I was suffering long before I was a socialist." is stating the obvious.

your beliefs may contribute to it (having a worldview that teaches you the status quo as it stands is irredeemable dogshit will likely contribute to it) but ultimately the cause is within the person itself.

the historical nazis were more mentally fucked than an 1880's loon house

Depression is the sane answer to a sick world.

Pretty much everybody uses drugs. If you don't drink booze you drink coffee unless you're some kind of vegan anti gluten only pure vegetable mash and meditating type.

Beyond that drugs are fun and a good way to socialise. People are hard wired to be threatened by large groups of unfamiliar people, but when these primal instincts are dulled more communication can take place, therefore advancing most all dialectical movements.

Daniel Perez

I think everyone is depressed and the internet has made it worse by increasing the general social isolation people feel. When you spend more time talking to strangers on Twitter or watching netflix than spending time with friends or family I can't see things going well. I think I cope as well as I do because I'm an introvert that has always preferred alone time. Coupled with hopelessness for the future derived from no jobs and a collapsing environment I think the people that aren't depressed are the ones outside the norm.
