Social isolation of seniors - Volume 1: Understanding the issue and finding solutions
Chapter Fourteen. Chapter Fifteen. Three months ago we read that loneliness has become an epidemic among young adults. Now we learn that it is just as great an affliction of older people. Ebola is unlikely ever to kill as many people as this disease strikes down. Dementia, high blood pressure, alcoholism and accidents — all these, like depression, paranoia, anxiety and suicide, become more prevalent when connections are cut.
We cannot cope alone. Yes, factories have closed, people travel by car instead of buses, use YouTube rather than the cinema. But these shifts alone fail to explain the speed of our social collapse. The war of every man against every man — competition and individualism, in other words — is the religion of our time, justified by a mythology of lone rangers, sole traders, self-starters, self-made men and women, going it alone.

We no longer talk about people.

Loneliness, depression and sociability in old age
This self-medication aggravates the disease. Research by economists at the University of Milan suggests that television helps to drive competitive aspiration. It strongly reinforces the income-happiness paradox: the fact that, as national incomes rise, happiness does not rise with them.
Aspiration, which increases with income, ensures that the point of arrival, of sustained satisfaction, retreats before us. The researchers found that those who watch a lot of TV derive less satisfaction from a given level of income than those who watch only a little. TV speeds up the hedonic treadmill, forcing us to strive even harder to sustain the same level of satisfaction. What do we gain from this war of all against all?
