    Nothing. Depression is a natural reaction to inhumane industrial-technological society. Not being depressed under these circumstances would be pathological. The psychopathic npc majority are the true mentally ill.

      What is humane even supposed to mean. Humane is not getting torn apart by a bear in the wild. Quit crying Kaczinsky

        Putting the issue of wild animals attacking you in the wild aside, I think he means that civilization is becoming increasingly more impersonal and focuses on technology replacing meaningful human connections.
        That was most noticable during the covid pandemic when kids couldn't go to school and socialize, and would instead be taught via zoom on their computers.
        But even post-covid this still has an effect with office workers wanting to work from home, rather than going to the office etc

      You can still work against it by going out in nature regularly, getting plenty of zone 2 cardio+ some weightlifting, and having genuine social connections with those around you. I'm failing at the last one but I'm ok.

      Wait for springtime

      Winter is cold and dead like a rock, springtime is warm and cozy like a soft hug. It is also better for doing things like (you do have one, whether you realize it or not)

      If it is truly chronic... Just keep waiting. This hasn't been my favorite decade but it usually does get better at some point, even if it takes a few years

    If 11% of the population had depression that means society would collapse. Most people diagnosed with MDD do not have it. They suffer from OCD involving melancholic thoughts and they think they are depressed by virtue of sad thoughts hence why they find relief with SSRIs. Real depression comes with anhedonia which makes sufferers of it nonfunctional to the point of financial ruin. The latter is only resolved with MAOIs, ketamine or electroconvulsive therapy. SSRIs decrease neurotransmission which would serve to make a depressed person more depressed. The "I'm sad and suicidal" meanwhile have careers and can make doctors appointments and put on a big show either have OCD or histrionic personality disorder. Not depression.

    For men, it's basically compete and win as much as you can. Loosing and being weak is what makes men depressed and dejected, being strong, competent, and winning competitions makes men happy.

    Also, you don't have to win gold metals at olympics or anything it's more about the mindset and you can psyop yourself into being more confident.

      Your reply is either a misunderstanding or a misdirection. Non-normies are not nourished by normie thoughts or behaviour. They have needs that can not be fulfilled in this world so they're starving.

          Non-normies have more delay between stimulus and response, more reflection and therefore more distance to conditioning. This way of being will lead them much sooner than anyone else to fully realize, not merely as an entertaining thought but with their whole being, that the world is like a play with actors following a script causing drama and suffering for themselves and eachother by acting from baseline darwinism and hedonism like machines / feedback mechanisms maximizing their own pleasure and minimizing their own pain, forming hierarchies based on looks, money and competence used to exercise power over eachother.

          The non-normie sees this play out from a young age, suffering from the awareness of the fundamental human tragedy that plays out, suffering from the inability to conform, suffering from the failure to derive reward from what other ''people'' find rewarding, how society is organized accordingly and suffering from powerless to change their environment that practices norms and values antagonistic to their own well-being.

          The non-normie longs for a world organized with values that transcend the machine-like base nature. Religious values are a good start.

            Are there religious values that are not outright ridiculous? No offense, but if you dig deeper into most religions, it gets very weird. Even buddhism has wild aspects.

            It's not ridiculous to minimize drama and suffering for yourself and others, to take good care of the body, to not poison the environment, to act according to what your own conscience tells you what is the highest value, to relate in a spontaneous way rather than a calculating/transactional way, to treat others like you want to be treated. Yet most people for most of history have failed these basic tennets. Normies are rather in perpetual conflict with themselves and others.

            It's not even ridiculous to want architecture to be inspiring and inviting rather than economical and demoralizing. It's not ridiculous to see that the ruling class prefers control through fear and artificial scarcity rather than acting like a shepherd. You seem to be desperately seeking strawmen to delegitimize the need to transcend the dominant modern values that have shaped current society into an insufferable machine preying on animalistic instincts.

            I do not agree. Most abrahamic religions tell you outright what your conscience should tell you. And the minimization of drama and suffering has lower priority than to reproduce the dogmas of the religions. Most religions value the wellfare of humans lower than undesirable behaviour as to their dogmas and are thus against human nature.

            Odds are, if you are on this page, you’re going to need a religion that can harmonize with science. Stick to the religions that have famous scientists, Judaism and Catholicism are the 300 kg gorillas in that room, but some Protestants do OK. Islam used to be, but all evidence of current practice says no. I can’t speak for Buddhism or Hinduism, but maybe it’s possible to adopt the philosophical framework without sacrificing commitment to reason.

            ty. i think treating all normies as pleasure-seeking automatons, as " 'people' ", is both wrong and self-limiting. i think it's more apt to say that people are stuck with their brains which ARE as you describe. some people are conquered by their brains, some people conquer their brains, most people wrestle with their brains for their whole lives. i agree with you about transcendent values, religion provides a means of conquering your own brain.
            i don't see how any of this conflicts with things like social interaction and "normie activities". social interaction as a means to short-term pleasure does not encompass all social interaction, the way i see it. you can try to enjoy yourself without focusing on short-term carnal pleasure. a perfectly rational hedonist would not use heroin for example, since this would reduce their overall pleasure/enjoyment/fulfillment of life in the long run.

            I agree.
            >i don't see how any of this conflicts with things like social interaction and "normie activities".
            I guess I need to give concrete examples to demonstrate the abstract principle that divergent norms and values inevitably lead to conflict and suffering. One of many such examples is that normies connect to eachother through sharing food and drink especially the kind that harms the body. Although some normies at least pretend to respect divergent choices such as the refusal to indulge in harmful food and drink, it is still fundamental that group cohesion is measured as the degree to which norms and values are shared. In summary: divergent behaviour will inevitably lead to alienation.

            Additionally: note that counter culture does not exist because counter culture replicates the norms and values of normal culture. For example: punkers will still judge and treat eachother according to their looks and competence in artistic pursuits.

            Notice that interaction as you describe it has a voluntary/free will assumption. However it's unreasonable to expect a non-normie to be fully immune to the invited judgement of others. A self-image is therefore a misnomer because the image does not reflect the self but the environment.

            very true, i think the applied mechanization and militarization of social pressure is some of our highest technology at the moment.

        Non-normalgays can't be helped by therapy? They can't enjoy things like hobbies or going for a walk in sunny weather (which you are biologically hardwired to enjoy at least a tiny bit)? They don't benefit from fixing their sleep schedule?
        If you really believe that's just walls you build for yourself so you don't have to get out of you "comfort" zone which makes you feel miserable. Unless you have severe mental problems I suppose.

    Honestly? The only people I ever see overcoming depression have done so by adopting a spiritual framework into their lives. Everyone else is just hoping the SSRI doesn’t suppress their humanity to the point they are the next mass casualty psychopath.
