Suicidal Children: The Psychological Toll of the “New Normal”

Out of the assortment of crises the tyrannical Covid response measures have created, perhaps none are as tragic and concerning as the generation whose childhood has been ripped away from it and whose formative years of development have been marked by this insanity.

In a recent article praising the mental health programme of a Michigan elementary school, the AP reports:

Like kids in so many cities and towns around the globe, the youngsters in Michigan’s Van Buren Intermediate School District have been through a lot these past few years. A relentless pandemic that continues to disrupt classrooms, sicken friends and loved ones, and has left some district families jobless and homeless. Three student suicide attempts since in-person school resumed full-time this fall, two student suicides last year. And now, a deadly shooting just two days earlier at a school a few hours away.

If you are ever curious as to how journalists can be aware of the effects of the Covid response measures and yet continue to give their full throated support to them, it is because they do not care. But I digress.

The feckless journo continues:

In a school year that was supposed to be a return to normal but has proven anything but, the district has launched an educational program based on a key component of modern psychology — cognitive behavior therapy. Principles of this method are embedded in the curriculum and are part of the district’s full embrace of social and emotional learning.

Students in every grade are taught how thoughts, feelings and behaviors are linked and how learning how to control and reframe thoughts can lead to more positive outcomes. The program includes more intensive lessons for kids struggling with anxiety, depression or trauma, along with sessions on suicide prevention.

We have come to the point where elementary schools need to implement suicide prevention measures, and these soulless husks do not even contemplate second guessing the government boot on their throat.

U.S. emergency rooms have seen a surge in kids with mental health crises including suicidal behavior, depression and eating disorders. Pediatric mental health therapists are scarce in many areas and kids often wait months for outpatient treatment.

In a December 7 public health advisory, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy cited research showing that depression and anxiety symptoms doubled among youth worldwide during the pandemic. Expanding school-based programs is among his recommendations.

If you weren’t a small business owner and didn’t care much for them, if the economic data of the collapsing economies of the developing world were too far removed and far away, if personal freedoms were just too abstract of a concept for you to care, or if you perhaps didn’t like going outside much anyway, I could understand some amount of credulity in the mainstream pandemic narrative.

But the fate of the youth is not something we can be naive or complacent about.

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Surely! Everyone of you is a guardian and is responsible for his charges: The Imam (ruler) of the people is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects; a man is the guardian of his family (household) and is responsible for his subjects; a woman is the guardian of her husband’s home and of his children and is responsible for them; and the slave of a man is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for it. Surely, everyone of you is a guardian and responsible for his charges.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 7138

Do not place your children in the hands of a government that does the bare minimum to pretend to solve a mental health crisis it causes. If you want to know how they act when they actually care about something, look at how they act when the subject is implementing LGBT ideology into schools.

In Early 2020 before any of the covid vaccines came, I thought that the newly introduced lockdowns and other restrictions like mandatory masks and social distancing were a necessary hardship that the whole population must endure for the greater good of preventing millions of extra deaths from the virus, because they seemed to be working in reducing the rates of daily and weekly infections and fatalities.

But now, Considering all this huge damage that the extended lockdowns have caused, Maybe the actual real necessary lesser of the two evils is for a few thousand or few million extra people to die from the pandemic disease compared to subjecting a much larger number of people to the extended lockdown’s severe side effects of economic crisis, poverty, domestic abuse, mental illness, depression, suicide thoughts, and loss of personal freedoms to go around freely in town.

After all Allah said in the Quran 2:191
والفتنة أشد من القتل
“The fitna (tyrannical oppression or repression) is worse than killing”

And by the way, in this pandemic (especially the early stage before vaccines) many people left the cities to follow the Sunnah advice and relocate to the countryside like what I have been encouraging Muslims to do for months on the blog. In rural areas, the grip of the state is much weaker than the cities (including their capability to enforce lockdowns), and there are far less people there to get infected from, so you can live much more freely there including walking out and preserving your religious Conservative values and lifestyle.
