Open Free for All / Re: Vision of myself about to be eaten

Surely nearly everyone has had some similar vision of being left alone to die.  I know that being lost at sea is almost an archetypical vision of the fear of Lovelessness.

I've had real threats made on my life, and some really bad trips...

Yes; before space travel, the ocean was the largest void known to humankind...

What hinders you from bestowing that wisdom unto your daughter?

Perhaps these Jonah-esque visions are a sign you should be prophesying?

Spoiled children soon to fall
Freedom is the lie we live
We will wait for tragedy
And scatter helpless to the fire
Sorry for ourselves
Sorry for the things we've seen
No one cries for help
Waiting for the fire

When all our toys are burning
All these empty urges must be satisfied
Acted outside
Precious strength to turn the game to history

Giving up, I'm blown away
He said all I had to say
The final days have come and gone
Safe inside; there's nothing wrong
Nothing in these words
Sorry force of habit
Could it be way over my head?
Helpless to describe it
Could it be way over my head?
Helpless to describe it
Could it be way over my head?
Helpless to describe it
Dumb & cruel
Cut before it's grown
Lies so forced in bored control
It learned all that it cares to know

That wasn't the statement I was referring to as being illogical; it was the one above, saying that "more people would get it if it were a healthy reaction," when more people DO get it (the premise is skewed.) Whether it is perceived as a healthy reaction or not seems almost moot.. though I agree that PTSD is a healthy (or we could say, natural) reaction to that process.

Yeah...a friend posted on facebook...a comment...that PTSD is not really a healthy reaction...he said...because not everybody gets PTSD from a given set of events...he said if it was healthy, more people would get it.

I want to take apart the statement, "If it [PTSD] were healthy, more people would get it," to show how unfounded in logic it is;
I think a majority of survivors of Straight do have PTSD (whether they realize it or not), healthy reaction, or not...

The phrase PTSD implies mental illness when it truly is a healthy reaction to toxic environment.

They (the "mental health community," or whatever they're called) like using the word "disorder" a lot.

Funny, I listened to that album a day or two before this post, and hadn't in a long while, either.

Well, there was the relentless activity from the industry trolls. I guess that must have been what I was thinking of. Everything else got taken care of, like you say here. Interesting, about the kids still inside a program communicating on here with people who were out. The technical medium alone is reason enough for me. As for activism, you have a searchable database that works, and posts are always visible to everyone on the web (not exclusive to social media). It works fine for shooting the shit too, though it doesn't have that "chatroom" feel that facebook has.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

fornits is too primitive for all that, but still reminded me of review at times

Monday morning on Fornits = homes rap with coffee.

Like the cartoon sheepdog passing the cartoon coyote...punch the clock...hi bob...let's get to the bottom of this brainwashing totem pole with no vaseline.


yep, this medium is way better for discussion, warts and all...

I love that by default there are no "notifications" popping up here...
