This, from Fox News, gets our pick for the headline of the week:
This was the conclusion published in the journal, Social Science & Medicine – Mental Health.
Epidemiologist Catherine Gimbrone and her coauthors compared depressive attitudes of 12th-graders from 2005 to 2018 between those aligned with conservatism (defined in the study as support of individual liberty) and liberals. The research found, “conservatives reported lower average depressive affect, self-derogation, and loneliness scores and higher self-esteem scores than all other groups.”
This result doesn’t surprises us at all. Liberals believe the world is coming to an end because of climate change; that family, country, and religion don’t matter; and that your success in life is not based on your hard work and life choices, but on the color of your skin and the income of your parents. Oh, and you should start thinking about a sex-change operation.
We’d say that’s a pretty depressing outlook on life.
