I’ve actually thought about sitting down and writing this book, or something like it, a few times. Unfortunately even I have difficulty taking “treat people like they have value” and making it the length of a book. Also the concept seems simple to me, so I have a hard time believing that there are people so maladjusted that it would be difficult for them to comprehend. This in spite of the fact that I know, without a doubt, that they exist. I have stared in to the eyes of a rich sociopath and seen the deep, Lovecraftian, emptiness within. Wealthy people are just like any other kind of person. There are good ones and bad ones. The bad ones are chilling to be around though. You can sense that they see no value outside of themselves. That animal danger sense we have begins to sound in the presence of such a person. If you died right in front of them, by way of their action or inaction, they would simply go about their day with no more thought of the incident then one might experience after stepping on a bug. It is my considered opinion that the American political class is inundated in such people, but we’ll leave that subject for others to worry about.
I naively thought that once I escaped retail I would exist outside of this paradigm, but that isn’t the case. The ripples of that toxic mindset effect things up and down the chain. You might get farther away from the system, but you can never truly remove yourself from it; outside of relinquishing your life. Someone, somewhere, thinks you owe them something and they will stop at nothing to get it from you. If they find they can’t get it from you once they find you they will lock you up, or murder you, out of spite for daring to resist.
Or perhaps I’m just being paranoid.
In any case, I still exist in the system and need resources, so if you wish to share your resources with me, in exchange for my efforts, please use the links above. I don’t know for certain what my weekend holds in store, but my guess is more cleaning. I will, however, meet you back here at the agreed upon time. Until then, whimmy whim wham whozzle.
