Farmer suicides are designed by modern civilization

"For many years the government and the society have not been able to handle the problem of farmers’ suicides. In the last two decades 2.5 lakh farmers have committed suicide because of crop losses, harassment by creditors and similar reasons, plunging whole families to doom. The governments’ claim that the farmers’ suicide rate is not higher than the general suicide rate is wrong.

The reasons are complex, with many psychological, social and economic factors playing into the situations, which also vary from place to place. Basically the problems and uncertainties that attend agriculture are at the root of the malady. Strengthening and expanding insurance coverage of crops, which is very ineffective now, can help to some extent. This needs to be paid more attention to. "
What kind of a governance is this that allows mass suicides? Analysis: The giant cumulative effects of dams are the cause via direct heating up of the earth causing climate change. This is a component of modern civilization(mc) which itself is committing suicide because these cumulative effects are continuously acting giant waves hitting vital parts of mc resulting in its destruction. Listen to Mahatma Gandhi(1908) in Hind Swaraj: Given enough time mc will destroy itself. Solution: Plant and nurture forests(an activity for thousands of years). Trees act like giant pumps and beat gravity. Read more at Reforest Mother Earth to Live!
