    1. behavioral and psychological changes

      Wow, I have seen a tendency in myself and my friends to be a perfectionist.

    2. "They found that people born in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada after 1989 scored much higher than previous generations for all three kinds of perfectionism, and that scores increased linearly over time. "

      perfectionism and marketization of everything is happening in these countries too. These countries, like ours, are very concerned right now with markets, cutting taxes, cutting spending, cutting social programs, etc. I wonder if mental health problems are increasing as well.

    3. "Neoliberal ideology reveres competition, discourages cooperation, promotes ambition, and tethers personal worth to professional achievement. Unsurprisingly, societies governed by these values make people very judgmental, and very anxious about being judged."

      seems like this is the bottom line, our quest for economic and achievement and has made us sick.

    4. it was a we society

      Social Welfare programs

    5. "Neoliberal ideology reveres competition, discourages cooperation, promotes ambition, and tethers personal worth to professional achievement."

      It doesn't value our private lives-friendships, family at all!

    6. "In other words, young people's feeling of being judged harshly by their peers and the broader culture is intensifying with each passing year." So why would this be happening?

      Bret Kavannah trying to gain sympathy from his republican senators making it look like it was his age to party, drink and do the things that high school students will do.

    2. Dr. Ford publicly accused me of committing a serious wrong more than 36 years ago

      This just reminded me of some people having doubts on Dr. Ford as to why she didn't speak up before and why she is talking about Bret now after 36 years. So, I want to remind the public that talking about "Sexual Assault" is not easy and it takes a lot of courage for a women to speak about it. Also, Dr. Ford was seeing a therapist after the incident many years ago.

    3. the truth is that I have never sexually assaulted anyone—not in high school, not in college, not ever.

      Well! its not only Dr. Ford who had made the sexual assault allegations on Kavannaugh, there were many other women who did speak about Kavannaugh's sexual assaults on them. The public is not blind and everyone has been watching the news and the allegations. By Kavannaugh using words like "not ever" tells us that he is lying about it.

    4. I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. This effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.

      Bret Kavannaugh is so sure of himself that he will not be defeated. He is so sure that his fellow republican senate will stand by him, which was tested as the senate supported him and stood by him throughout.
