This is not about mental illness, or maybe it is.
But no, it’s not. Trauma maybe.
And, while I’m at it, living honestly, doesn’t make your mental illness go away!
I am not sure what prizes sharing any of this wins me. And, I am also not sure as to whether I’d want them.
So, we’ll go with no prizes.
The more open-minded, more aware, more “awake” one is, you can’t help but notice that we are fighting a war against the anti-intellectuals of our time. And, it’s probably not going to end well!
Here in the United States, the conservatives are mad at everything, and the liberals are too!
However, the liberals aim to focus their anger in constructive ways.
The liberals use science and reasoning (intellectualism) to make their way through life, which conservatives could give a rat’s ass about those things. They’ve got “god” and conspiracies, and they’re pissed!
Because after all, the conservatives are the chosen one’s doing “god’s” work!
The whole thing sucks! And I just wish more people had insight, and knew the consequences of their actions!
We make everything so political/about religion, and politics suck, and so do politicians!
For me, it’s that you have to (wisely) pick the lesser of two evils.
And, if you look at things from a purely decency/human rights perspective in 2021, that should be easy.
