Why are there so many stories about mental illness, and violence, in the media all of a sudden?
I was born in 1968. So my memories go back to at least the 70's. And it was never like this. I recall back in the 80's, for example, once in a while there was a story like this. But now it is literally every week. Sometimes even several times a week. What gives? And what is different now?
Most mentally are not violent, BTW. And of course, Pres. Reagan did cut funding to mental health services, a trend that continues to this day, I understand.
But still something is undeniably different. Clearly not a conspiracy, at least not a well-planned one. But as I said, something is clearly different now.
