Why do Americans rely on therapy and anti-depressants so much?

Are they afraid of somehow being confronted with reality?

It's ALWAYS Americans who do this... how did they get to be the most pussy race of people?

American culture is all about instant gratification aka getting cheap dopamine rushes with the least effort possible. People come home from their 9-5 job so they melt their brain in front of the TV while eating shitty food and getting drunk. Then they pop some BS pills to treat medical problems caused by their shitty sedentary lifestyle. Since their body looks like shit they feel like shit, so now they pop some antidepressants. Nobody seeks to improve themselves anymore, or to seek a greater purpose in their life. 

It became this way because American life is too convenient. We have too many dopamine sources that require little to no effort like getting validated through social media or processed food that desensitizes our taste of fat, salt, and sugar.

Also, everybody I know who is on antidepressants is fat as fuck. Weight gain is a common side effect. My dad ballooned from 250lbs to 350lbs since starting Prozac. He's completely numb and doesn't care about anything anymore. It's pathetic.

The drug companies are pushing the anti-depressants on everyone to profit.

^^ Americans blindly trust doctors in every health-related issue. Drug companies push ssris and doctors collect copays when prescriptions are filled. Since Western medicine is largely focussed on treating the symptoms and not the underlying cause, depression and anxiety are considered illnesses and thus the logical thing in the context of western medicine is to prescribe an antidote.

But it's legitimate when you voice a controversial opinion about anything, the response is....


Go see a therapist.

Not ALWAYS.  Since the late 70's yes. 40 years that is pretty fucking far from "always."
Always

200 years ago Americans were shitting their pants because of natives with stone age weapons.



The people who settled in America were the most backward and lowest-tier people from Europe.

Yeah,  it's bad advice.   Real therapy is someone physically and/or "psychologically"  forcing you to do something you don't want to do but should do for the betterment of your conditions.  Our culture is too wishy washy for that, though.

I agree.   America is built on a foundation of massive low class pussies.   Worst country in the first world right now.

If you feel that way, why not show us what kind of balls YOU have.  Why don't you go pitch a tent in downtown Detroit and spend a month?  Even though you might not see the similarities they are there.  You'll be in a strange land, isolated, and open game to whomever feels they want to take your things because you have intruded on their territory.

Report back, you ballsy motherfucker.

Na, no rollerblading.   That's pretty dead here.
