One would think that would be obvious, but it never is to individuals that have turned their minds and their minds-eye selfishly inward. So sad and frightening.

Society in general, and the United States most desperately needs to establish cabinet level mental health experts to generate ongoing public programs for the hapless. And the programs have to have some weight. There needs to be counseling areas in every government institution including voting precincts. If we were China we could have the populace form two lines, one to the voting booth which is entered after progressing through the counseling booth. We ain't China but if we don't do this soon, we might be a new and improved Russia.

In short, restrictions on what has always been considered common human decency. We might have restricted ourselves to those self-imposed proscriptions when words had no written form to facilitate propaganda, bullshit, or ugliness, but not since then.

    Problem is, the real threat doesn't come from mainstream media (if you categorize mainstream as dictated/suggested by consensus reality). Social media outlets left that paradigm in the dusty past.

    I've had times in life where I've been seen as a loser. It was mostly a social thing. I had awkward social skills, we moved a lot, and I just can't play the clique game. It makes me sick.

    And yet, I've ended (not quite done yet) as anything but a loser. I have a great son, I held my family together, and I now live in as much peace and self determination as is possible.

    But I'm not famous, I'm not an online influencer, I'm not rich, and I'm not a Republican.

    So, in many books, I'm a loser.

    Good.
