History of child- and youth-mortality rates

Especially with respect to the history of child- and youth-mortality rates, one should never judge the past by today’s standards. There is a serious flaw in the reasoning related to children who died while attending Canadian residential schools. Was the mortality rate for children much better in general society? Never blindly trust statistics that are shown in isolation and don’t permit comparisons. Invariably, such statistics present advocacy numbers that brush the history of objective mortality statistics out of existence. The reality of mortality rates for children in developed nations during the interval the Canadian residential schools were in operation was that during the end of the 19th Century, in general … Continue reading

Benefits of COVID Vaccines Outweigh Risks

Updated 2021 02 01, to show  Canada’s rank in progress of administering vaccines. Unknown COVID vaccine side effects may appear after millions immunized—but benefits outweigh risks, asserts News Week. (More, by KASHMIRA GANDER ON 12/3/20 AT 7:21 AM EST)  “Unknown COVID Vaccine Side Effects May Appear After Millions Immunized—But Benefits Outweigh Risks.” Really? That assertion is pure speculation. The side effects are unknown. It is unknown whether they will or will not appear. Furthermore, it is unknown how severe or prevalent the side effects will be, if they do appear. Therefore, no one cannot accurately estimate what the risks are and calculate whether the benefits of the vaccines will outweigh the risks … Continue reading

Missing Persons in the United States

The Extent of the Problem Over 600,000 individuals become missing persons in the United States every year. Fortunately, many missing children and adults are quickly found, alive and well. However, tens of thousands of individuals remain missing for more than one year – what many agencies consider “cold cases”. It is estimated that 4,400 unidentified bodies are recovered each year, with approximately 1,000 of those bodies remaining unidentified after one year.

Male circumcision — multibillion dollar business

Male circumcision is being done a lot. It is a good source of income for the medical industry and will continue to be done for profit as long as profits doing the procedure can be made. Male circumcision is a multi-billion-dollar enterprise. Although circumcision is expensive, and even though that is good for the medical industry, one thing is certain, the ads that promote the procedure often show photos of smiling baby boys. The impression one is being left with by those photos is that circumcision makes baby boys happy. United States Whether it is covered by health insurance or not, “…circumcision for an older child or adult male typically … Continue reading

Actual Average Lifespans Decline — US Women Lose Big

» Actual Average Lifespans Decline — U.S. Women Lose Big « That should have been in the headlines of the front pages for years.  It wasn’t.  International Women’s Day is not over. It would be over now, largely gone from our minds, if it weren’t for the news.  The news during the past few days mentioned much about discrimination against women, about an escalating epidemic of sexual harassment, about the persistent pay gap (entirely mythical, when examined objectively, which is of course never mentioned) that puts women at a disadvantage, and many more things like that – feminists had decided years ago – needed to be eradicated to make women … Continue reading

Divorce causes population decline

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’Index and preamble for series Population decline Women’s liberation triggered population decline, not immediately, but it not only intensified the demand for birth control (that is, the prevention of conception), it also intensified the demand for “birth control” by means of abortion.  The consequences of that are now becoming visible, because actions have consequences.  We are harvesting what the feminists and other liberals of the ’60s have sown. Any country that has total fertility rates (the number of children born to an average woman of fertile age) that are above replacement level, that is, they suffice to maintain the … Continue reading

Divorce causes escalating suicide rates

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’Index and preamble for series Escalating suicide rates Divorce causes escalating suicide rates, primarily for men and to a far lesser extent for women.  It stands to reason that, if the suicide rates for the sexes were reversed, that the suicide rates of women would receive far greater attention than the far higher ones of men do now.  Yet, it can be argued that virtually all of society conspires to downplay and preferably ignore that men die through suicide in epidemic proportions, in very large numbers, in each passing year. There are reasons why men commit suicide at … Continue reading

Actual lifespans versus estimated life expectancies

This gallery contains 15 photos.

Updated 2018 02 19, to identify a serious error in a report published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a report on aspects of suicides in India. Updated 2019 05 19, to add links to related articles. Actual average lifespans in the United States began to decline in the year 2013 and were still falling in 2016.  Should one not have expected for that to have become front-page news in 2013 and to continue to  be front-page news?  Will President Trump help to make an improvement in that trend?  It is a worthwhile effort.  It seems to be far more valuable to improve the health of his nation … Continue reading

Divorce hurts Children, a million more in the U.S. a year

Divorce hurts children: “Each year, over a million American children suffer the divorce of their parents. Divorce causes irreparable harm to all involved, but most especially to the children. Though it might be shown to benefit some individuals in some individual cases, over all it causes a temporary decrease in an individual’s quality of life and puts some “on a downward trajectory from which they might never fully recover.”1 Divorce damages society. It consumes social and human capital. It substantially increases cost to the taxpayer, while diminishing the taxpaying portion of society. It diminishes children’s future competence in all five of society’s major tasks or institutions: family, school, religion, marketplace and government. The reversal of the cultural and social … Continue reading

Women’s March

The Women’s March on Washington (2017) was probably the single, most important event staged by feminists that evoked in the general public a rejection of feminism. The highlights of the policy platform that were impressed upon the writers of the article covering the event were these (the impressions I took away from the media coverage are added in parentheses after each item in the list): Reproductive rights (government funding of abortions and other forms of birth control); Immigration reform (legalization of illegal immigration); Healthcare reform (government funding of health care for women); Religious discrimination (more government protection for Muslim U.S. women residents, the promotion of Sharia law for women, Burqas, … Continue reading
