except my opinions actually make sense and you're just throwing out babbling nonsense as alternatives. i just told you southeast asia and africa, the poorest and most destitute continents ravaged by capitalism are leading the world in suicide rates yet you're talking about trump supporters.
there's not going to be any "scientific studies" on this, no one is going to fund a study on the detrimental effects of capitalism by the only people who can afford to , capitalists. you'll need critical thinking skills. if you disagree that capitalism is the cause (lol) come up with alternatives that actually make sense (you can't).
Hmm. Over-population. Stress, all that good stuff - but I have no facts to back such conjecture up.
Southeast Asia, and Africa are large regions that each cover many different countries with vastly different social, political and economic conditions.
To lump such a massive and diverse chunk of the entire world together and say, "it's because of capitalism" is absolutely absurd. There is no critical thinking there.
I'd say you were manipulating the facts to suit you agenda, but you aren't even doing that, your just wholesale making stuff up.
Then you actually go so far as to follow "critical thinking skills" with the original false dichotomy of argumentum ad ignorantiam
..... just like Claw lol.
For anybody else who missed 8th grade:
A thing is not fact because is can't be disproven.
A thing is not fact until it is
You are the one making the claim, either back it up with facts (not conjecture) or be proven an ignoramus.
