Thinking is an act very much in distaste here in the richest country in the world, as evidenced by so little of it being done.
A quarter of students found the 2016 (election) so traumatic they now report symptoms of PTSD, according to a new study.
Researchers surveyed Arizona State University students around the time of President Donald Trump‘s inauguration in 2017, and some had stress scores on par with that of school shooting witnesses’ seven-month follow-ups.
Twenty-five percent of the 769 students, who were an even mix of genders and races and socioeconomic backgrounds, reported ‘clinically significant’ levels of stress. – via thedailymail.co.uk
Mercy! An election of a moron, taking the reigns from the moron’s before him in the White House, all who have led the charge of war, war and more wars…where our sons and daughters are sent to face horrors that sheltered college students haven’t a whiff of a scent of, and THEY are the ones reporting symptoms of PTSD!!!???
Truly, all rational thought has been vanquished.
The simpleness of it all seems to have escaped the geniuses of the era…no wars – no PTSD. College snowflakes would then have to find another slight they have never suffered from to hang their insecurities on.
