More US Soldiers Commit Suicide Than Die In Battle

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Some very disturbing facts on US military deaths.

Here is a shocking statistic that you won’t hear in most western news media: over the past nine years, more US military personnel have taken their own lives than have died in action in either the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. These are official figures from the US Department of Defence, yet somehow they have not been deemed newsworthy to report. Last year alone, more than 330 serving members of the US armed forces committed suicide – more than the 320 killed in Afghanistan and the 150 who fell in Iraq (see wsws.org).

Since 2001, when Washington launched its so-called war on terror, there has been a dramatic year-on-year increase in US military suicides, particularly in the army, which has borne the brunt of fighting abroad. Last year saw the highest total number since such records began in 1980. Prior to 2001, the suicide rate in the US military was lower than that for the general US population; now, it is nearly double the national average.

What is even more disturbing is that the official figures only count victims of suicide among serving personnel. Not included are the many more veterans – officially classed a civilians – who take their own lives.

Most likely, these deaths are reported in some small-town newspaper in “a brief” news item with no context or background as to what drove these individuals to take their own lives. It is estimated that the suicide rate among veterans demobbed from fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq is as high as four times the national average. The US Department of Veteran Affairs calculates that over 6,000 former service personnel commit suicide every year.

Many of these men have come home to a country they have fought for only to find no jobs, their homes repossessed by banks that have enjoyed trillion-dollar bailouts and broken relationships.

Program or Be Programmed

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Douglas Rushkoff speaks at SXSW interactive conference on programming reality. By watching and reading this you will enter a self-referential feedback loop.

“We get text. Instead of getting priests to read everything to us, we make our own words. We get the printing press. Instead of depending on a few scribes, anyone can write. Now we get the computer, now anyone can program reality. Now that’s not what actually happened though.

We get the computer. Do we get a nation of programmers? Noooo, we get a nation of bloggers. We have the ability to write, but we don’t know how to program. We write in the box that Google gives us.”

progress-vs-profit
Good Magazine has posted an excellent article that examines how 20 and 30 year olds can develop careers that pay to do good in the world.

In addition they have released an e-book that analyzes what does meanigful employment mean, barriers when finding a meaningful career, what is required to find balance, along with strategies for making money and doing good and must see resources. If you’re a twenty-something floating on the waves of work ambiguity then this is a must read.
