Requesting sources about hedonism and promiscuity

There was, recently, this “raid” by a bunch of crazy catladies (lmao) in the Facebook webpage. These retards love to talk about how much they hate children and how much they love the money they get to themselves, and how happy they are.

So I think it is a good idea to collect sources that show their retardation. However, this is a tricky task, because these hedonist idiots will have no problems reporting how “happy” they are. The solution? Using an adequate metric, like suicide rates.

Overall, I’m asking for any stats or source that shows the devastating effects of hedonism on humanity, be it suicide rates, depression rates, or whatever rates associated to fertility, promiscuity, marriage, greed, number of sexual aprtners etc.

If you got infographs, make sure it has a source and I wil check it. If it is legit, I will include it here.

Currently, I have the following ones:

Fertility negatively related to suicides:

Here’s a collection of info, you can look over it to slice out the relevant parts. Sadly I dont see many sources.

Here’s some articles that might be relevant:

And a little quote to the end, just in case.

I see some sources in the pictures, though I will have to check them to see where they lead.

I’ll see what I can find from the classical philosophers, too, as I think an important pre-discussion tactic that often goes by the wayside is coming up with a definition or stand-in definition for each term that may be used. Otherwise you go into discussions with people holding to two different and, possibly, contradictory ideas of what “happy” means.

“We may define happiness as prosperity combined with virtue; or as independence of life; or as the secure enjoyment of the maximum pleasure; or as a good condition of property and body, together with the power of guarding one’s property and body and making use of them. That happiness is one or more of these things, pretty well everyone agrees.
From this definition of happiness it follows that its constituent parts are: - good birth, plenty of friends, good friends, wealth, good children, plenty of children, a happy old age, also such bodily excellences as health, beauty, strength, large stature, athletic powers, together with fame, honour, good luck, and virtue.”
-Aristotle (edited P. Negri and J. Bak), “Rhetoric”, para. 1360b, (Dover Thrift Editions, 2004)

If we take this as a starting point, we should be able to define happiness more thoroughly.

I propose also a meme section. Even if its a low effort blow, its definitely worth having in our arsenal

Ideally I think we need to be in a position of supplementing our article/resource posts with memes, so the meme section would be a requirement.

That is precisely why I have focused on suicide rates, because they are a good indicator of mental stability, since false happiness tends to lead to suicide.

Right now I have to spend a week in Slovenia. I will resume the analysis of sources when I’m back.

Ok I’m back. In a couple of days I will resume checking the main source of the infographs

The collection of sources and the script is done. covid is delaying the reading by a member, but it will be done.
