Americans Are Angrier & More Frustrated Than Ever: 19 Furious Facts

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Submitted by Michael Snyder of The American Dream blog,

Have you noticed that people are becoming angrier?  You can see it everywhere – in our homes, in our schools, in our workplaces, in our television shows, in our movies, and certainly in Washington.  In fact, many have said that there is an “epidemic” of anger in America today.  And it is undeniably true.  As you will see below, a whole host of surveys and opinion polls show that America has become a seething cauldron of anger and frustration unlike anything that we have ever seen before.

As a nation, we are more divided than we have been in decades, and economic conditions continue to deteriorate.  People are working harder than ever and Americans get less vacation days than anyone else in the world, but median household income keeps going down every year.  Americans are dissatisfied with their relationships, their jobs, their communities and their political leaders.  There is this growing sense that our country is steamrolling toward disaster, and yet there is very little agreement on what the solutions to our problems are.  Instead, blaming others for our problems has become a new American pastime.  The very fabric of our society is coming apart at the seams and the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is beginning to disappear.  What is America going to look like if we continue to go even farther down this road?

The following statistics come from various surveys and opinion polls that have been conducted recently.  Without a doubt, these numbers show that Americans are angrier and more frustrated than ever…

#1 65 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the U.S. system of government and its effectiveness”.  That is the highest level of dissatisfaction that Gallup has ever recorded.

#2 66 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the size and power of federal government”.

#3 70 percent of Americans do not have confidence that the government will “make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014.”

#4 Only 8 percent of Americans believe that Congress is doing a “good” or “excellent” job.

#5 Only 4 percent of Americans believe that it would “change Congress for the worse” if every member was voted out during the next election.

#6 60 percent of Americans report feeling “angry or irritable”.  Two years ago that number was at 50 percent.

#7 53 percent of Americans believe that the Obama administration is “not competent in running the government”.

#8 An all-time low 31 percent of Americans identify themselves as Democrats.

#9 An all-time low 25 percent of Americans identify themselves as Republicans.

#10 An all-time high 42 percent of Americans identify themselves as Independents.

#11 Barack Obama’s daily job approval numbers have dipped down into the high thirties several times lately.

#12 Only 38 percent of Americans approve of the way that Obama is handling the economy.

#13 60 percent of Americans believe that the “economic system in this country unfairly favors the wealthy”.

#14 70 percent of Americans do not “feel engaged or inspired at their jobs”.

#15 Two-thirds of U.S. teens “admit to having anger attacks involving the destruction of property, threats of violence, or engaging in violence”.

#16 36 percent of Americans admit that they have yelled at customer service agents during the past year.

#17 73 percent of Americans believe that Obama’s efforts to “reform” the NSA “won’t make much difference in protecting people’s privacy”.

#18 77 percent of Americans believe that the state of the economy is either “not so good” or “poor”.

#19 65 percent of Americans are either “somewhat dissatisfied” or “very dissatisfied” with the direction of the country.

Are you starting to get the picture?

We have never seen anything like this in the United States during the post-World War II era.  People are fundamentally unhappy, and that has tremendous implications for the future of our society.

So what is causing all of this anger and frustration?

Well, of course the economic struggles that tens of millions of Americans are experiencing on a daily basis play a huge role.  The following is an excerpt from a recent local Fox News report

Some are describing this as “America’s anger epidemic.” And there are a few reasons: uncertainty in the job market and the economy, working long hours — on average about one month more now than they did in the 1970s and with less vacation.

 

So if it seems like Americans are angrier these days it’s because we are.

And it is easy to understand why people are becoming increasingly frustrated with the incompetence and rampant corruption in Washington D.C.

Grim findings have been coming thick and fast. Most Americans no longer see President Barack Obama as honest. Half think that he “knowingly lied” to pass his Obamacare health law. Fewer than one in five trust the government in Washington to do what is right all or most of the time. Confidence in Congress has fallen to record lows: in America, as in Italy and Greece, just one in ten voters expresses trust or confidence in the national parliament. Frankly straining credulity, a mammoth, 107-country poll by Transparency International, a corruption monitor, this summer found Americans more likely than Italians to say that they feel that the police, business and the media are all “corrupt or extremely corrupt”.

 

Americans are also turning on one another. Since 1972 the Chicago-based General Social Survey (GSS) has been asking whether most people can be trusted, or whether “you can’t be too careful” in daily life. Four decades ago Americans were evenly split. Now almost two-thirds say others cannot be trusted, a record high.

In addition, there are certainly other reasons why people are so angry these days as well…

The “Knockout Game” grows more popular. Athletes throw tantrums that would embarrass most 3-year-olds. Race relations simmer at a constant near-boil, while our leaders engage in enough posturing and name-calling to look more like a modern version of “West Side Story” than the servant-citizens who should inspire peace and mutual respect.

So what do you believe?

Why do you think that Americans are so angry and so frustrated these days?

Is there anything we can do about it?

And how bad will the anger and frustration in this country get when the economy completely collapses?

Fred your a voice of reason, do YOU agree? I mean fuck I'm an american, and I have lived all over the USA, and I have never seen 'Leave it to Beaver'   in the USA.

It was never beautiful, or nice, ... or good.

It was always angry, hostile, selfish, greedy,

The only real differnce today is the fucking 'political correctness', that didn't exist 30 years ago.

But make no mistake 30 years ago on LA freeways there was road rage and folks were shooting each other,

Back in the 1960's there were real riots on the streets, I was in WATTS during the 1960's riots.

AmeriKKKA has always been a nasty place full of angry nasty people.

Knowledge of the curent systems of control needs to be understood by everyone that wants real change.

this knowledge needs understanding that current systems of control are changeable ie FED, r vs d, media, religion, education systyem, ect.

this knowledge then is put into action. this could become violent as current psycopaths will be reluctant to change. (really:))

for me i can honestly say, my left hemisphere of my brain is saying get the fuck out. a super majority of america are too dumbed to grasp the basics of natural laws, the understanding of language and the responsibility that goes with liberty and freedom..

average american is too fucking lazy to learn how he/she is being fucked by the very people lying and promissing bullshit, whilst these very same people robb them every second of the day..

Gosh, I have read this kind of absolute stupid comment too many times. Listen, people like Stalin murdered millions and just happened to atheists at the same time. Some of them were also vegetarians (Hitler, supposedly) or lovers of classical music, or maybe haters of classical music. Correlation is not causation you fucktard.

Hitler or Stalin or Mao or whatnot did not kill a single person in the name of atheism and there is no atheist "agenda" or any such bullshit.

However, there were certainly millions killed in the name of one religion or another. So yes, us atheists would like religion to go where it belongs: the shit pile of history.

I think Satoshi is closer to the truth than the "Christian" vs. "Atheist" meme. Most ancient spiritual traditions (based on verifiable / experiencial spiritual truths) were hijacked long ago by power hungry religious zeolots. The Buddhist tradition is probably one of the least corrupted but still has its flaws. But all of the Muslim vs. Christianity / Atheism vs. Monotheism / Buddhism vs. Hinduism / New Age vs. Satanism / Etc. vs. Etc. misses the point:

We are intellectual animals (not Humans) playing at God rather than working to become a God. The spiritual soul returns over and over again. Unfortunately for us so do all of the polluted egos that we create. They attach to us when we reenter the flesh and cause us to repeat most of the crap we did in previous lives. The only way to escape is to analyze (meditate) these defects, comprehend them and then dissolve them. We currently live in the black age (the Kali Yuga as the Tibetan Buddhists call it). It is the most materialist age of the four ages. We are actually very fortunate because we have been given a free membership to the biggest and most well equiped gym in the galaxy in order to perfect ourselves. We are confronted with our own egos with every action and encounter including this ZH forum. We can mechanically repeat the same pattern or do the hard work to comprehend our egos as they manifest. Most people don't want to go to the gym. They want a pill to cure them or a wafer or a water baptism. No pill or outsider (priest, doctor, guru, etc.) can purify us and make us evolve. Only lots of hard work over many lifetimes will do this. I am just glad I have a gym pass and that most days I have some motivation to do the work. Everything else is Maya (illusion).

Sorry for the rant but the Christion vs. Muslim etc. meme is meant to keep us all in the dark and fighting one another so that TPTB can profit and enslave us further. I prefer to let their machine assist me with the Work.

I enjoyed your post. Reminds me of the Eckhart Tolle I've been studying. Most of humanity remains unconscious as he puts it. We haven’t yet evolved enough to dis-identify from our minds and thus continue to mistake our opinions and view points for the truth. This article and the majority of the responses seem to underline this fact.

No kidding, reminds me of a line from American Psycho, "Hey, I'm a child of divorce, gimme a break."

I don't see the anger and hostility that some are describing with the majority of Americans, except maybe in large socialist metro areas. But I do see gluttony, lethargy and ignorance and all the side effects resulting, all over.

If anything, Americans need to get more angry and take action. The controls gubmint has over the people would have caused an instant revolution 100 years ago, when gubmint didn't have nearly as much power.

From "The Network" ( 1976 )

Howard Beale: I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

Good movie. Funny how some things never change.

*

All my life I have traveled the world, and no where on earth have I seen children mistreated as much as the USA.

In ASIA for instance a child is NEVER alone, NEVER, he goes to work with his parents as an infant, many mothers carry their child 24/7, until he/she can walk. A child is always held, there are always dozens if not 100's of family within a 100 meter radius during the childs 0-12 years of age, they never know lonliness or anything,

Strangers are NEVER trusted, and no child is given a drug, ... if someone were to sexually molest a child that person would be DEAD the same day.

*

The proper question here is WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO AMERIKKKA?

Me thinks that the chase for the FED-FIAT aka FRN is what destroyed the ameriKKKan family. Human development works best in an extended family, where a child is entertained 24/7 by dozens of people who love them.

Why did AIPAC do this to AMERIKKKA? Destroy the family? I think the plan was always to turn the USA into an army of mercenary killers who rob and plunder the world.

I put my faith in the system and have been a corporate slave for the past 25 years raising a family. The veil was lifted and I have glimpsed the horror. I can't stop looking at it, like happening upon a car accident. Just staring at the horror. It is embarrassing that I can be a grown ass man and have gone through so much of life with practically no understanding.I have been very sheltered.

I appreciate your view. Many here just want to talk secondary and tertiary effects of the real action that is taking place. I have always wanted to understand the world. I did not fully grasp what that would entail.

It takes about 20 years  of stuyding this stuff to even begin to understand. Shit if it were easy, everyone would have a clue.

Carrol Quigley an insider historian for the CIA, .. it took his entire life to figure out the truth about the USA.

Yep, on the lowest order of understanding is to take tertiary actions in the masses and make a joke about them. That is adolescent.

On the one hand the BOT's here talk about their guns and taking ameriKKKA back, but I think its impossible to fix ameriKKKa without a FIRST-ORDER (PRIMARY) understanding of 'what went wrong'.

My mission here is to discuss this first order understanding, then and only then can we talk war strategy.

@ Satoshi411: 

I'm not sure how old you are, but at 36, I'm old enough to remember "when times were different": 

- Everyone in the neighborhood knew everyone else in the neighborhood. 

- Nobody locked their doors at night. 

- A schoolyard fight usually resulted in a new friendship afterwards. 

- In-school detention was the 'treatment' option for a schoolyard fight, not criminal charges + medications. 

- Schools taughts kids HOW to think, not WHAT to think. 

- You could pull over and help someone with car trouble, without wondering if you were being set-up for a robbery. 

- Most people didn't go through life, jealous of others, or obsessed with material bullshit that they really didn't need anyway.

- Jobs (even entry-level) paid a basic living wage. 

 

This isn't even a complete list. So yeah, times were different. People were different. 

Now? ?

Millions of 2-income households struggle to keep a roof over their heads, struggle to cope with the in-fighting that goes on in their households (usually over money), deal with unneccessary social pressure, and perpetually feel trapped on a hamster wheel. 

Millions of Americans are drugged-up, under the influence of something, and frustrated that they work harder now, than they ever did, while the quality of their life diminishes. 

Yeah, I'd say people have a LOT to be pissed about.

I grew up in LA, by the time I was 16 1/2 my friends were dead.

We all carried screwdrivers and pliers in our pockets, after a fight the loser always lost his teeth, the screwdriver was for eyes, I would say 1/2 the guys at my school wore eye patches.

When I lived in Pasadena even younger they used pencils to take out eyes.

Good for all of you that grew up in RURAL area,...

I still own  rural land in the USA all over the place, and every place is full of METH HEADS, and you keep a dog, and a gun near you at all times.

The best thing in the world is a DOG ( not a pit-bull that was a joke ), the dog alerts you, and you grab your gun and take care of business. Most meth-heads are like fucking zombies, and they're too fucking dumb to care for a dog, well a good dog.

I work with a guy who grew up in Pittsburgh during the 60's. He said it was rough. He indicated that his dad thought it was even rougher in that city growing up in the 40's.

Not too familiar with them to be honest. The one I was shooting was nice, it was an older PTR91F. It was post JLD enterprises and was smooth.

300 yards is not a problem. They also make the MSG, which will take you out to the end of the cartridge range (20 inch barrel).

I like them due to they are made here, and they said a big FU to Connecticut and moved to SC.

They also now make a 7.62x39, but I have no experience with them.

Not sure how they equate with the DSA or any other FALs, but they shoot nice.

SYNDER want's you to think this is NEW, its NOT.

This probably biggest reason why I live abroad, I can stare at people all day long and smile, and NEVER a fucking reaction never.

When I go the USA, I neve smile, never stare, ... just act like a fucking zombie.

Always been this way in AMERIKKKA.

In the grand tradition of Heads on Sticks, some fuck gives you the stare, pop the trunk, pull out the 10 gal gas can, unscrew and throw away the top, light your Zippo and start walking quickly towards him.

He will leave, ASAP

Now, I don't deny that Washington DC is full of homocidal maniacs, but obviously,  souche911 has never really been to LA or anywhere else in amerikka.  If I had seen Sushi911 in a car next to me in the 50's in LA, I would have waved at him, and my family would have waved at him.  If, on the other hand, Sush had flipped me the bird, I probably would have looked the other way.

Take an honest look in the mirror and see a nonsense muttering drunk.  The shades of validity in some of your complaints are drowned out by the pure false ridiculousness of the other half of your statements.  Half of the dudes in your school wore eye patches, and within every car is a crowbar-wielding murderer?  You're fucking drunk, dude; shut up.
