According novels and movies, the rich committed suicide during the Great Depression of 29. Now the poor commit suicide.
In the United States, the suicide wave that followed the stock market crash is also a part of the legend of 1929. In fact, there was none.
The number of farmers who have committed suicide in India between 1997 and 2007 now stands at a staggering 182,936. Close to two-thirds of these suicides have occurred in five states (India has 28 states and seven union territories). The Big 5 - Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh- account for just about a third of the country's population but two-thirds of farmers' suicides. The rate at which farmers are killing themselves in these states is far higher than suicide rates among non-farmers. Farm suicides have also been rising in some other states of the country.
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
No one cares about labour union stuff, unemployment, economics, business cycle management, finance regulation, business/infratructure (evil!!!!!111) and not even really about equality in a serious way. Again, I hang out a lot with people like this (in spite of being an evil rightwinger), and it just makes me so sad.
Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
