The mentally ill are the canaries in the coal mine.
I think I understand why people become mentally ill. We can’t come to terms with the absolute crazy way the world works (or doesn’t most of the time). The insanity of life causes the screws to loosen in those who are the sanest. If you can function properly in this sick world, you are insane. The minority of us who can’t function properly, are normal. Someday people with mental illnesses will rule the world and all the better it will be.
The idiot who said, “It is better to have lost at love than to never have loved at all,” obviously never lost at love. Heartbreak can be terminal.
I’m a huge opponent to war other than the kind we fight for our own lives on our own soils. The far-flung excursions America has engaged in since the end of WW II has caused untold death and suffering to ours and theirs. And I can’t even think of any good reason for being involved in ANY of them. Can you?
I’ll leave this here for your perusal. Tell me what you think.
A 16-year-old child was told to drink some of the liquid methamphetamines that he was smuggling across the U.S/Mexico border and died a few hours later.
A link and video of the story: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/07/29/video-shows-u-s-border-officers-telling-mexican-teen-to-drink-the-liquid-meth-that-killed-him/?utm_term=.eab6a47260e8
Does a child deserve to die for being a drug smuggler? Is the state too powerful?
Struggle and suffering are at the core of life’s meaning.
