'Alt-right'? Is that an euphemism for 'wrong'?

I do not a have the mental constitution to be reminded how asymmetrical all of my relationships are on several fronts a day. I feel like it's never me who has agency, be it as employee, customer, member, outsider, friend, lover, birthdaychild, owner or leaser no matter the role, no matter the perspective, things allways wind up the same.


Worst of all I screamed and yelled again, so now I'm not only frustrated but also ashamed.



oh and don't buy RDR2 guys, seriously, don't...

Depending on who you ask---

Agency has either always:

1) Been an illusion.
2) Been actively sabotaged by the ruling elite.


It has been my observation that the more people (regardless of gender, class, or financial affluence) you cram together in one place, the more "agency" goes down.  This is because every individual person's choices invariably have impact on all other nearby persons, which means that the consequences of agency being enacted, is the reduction of agency for all others.

Well that all fits quite nicely, because I only ever feel ok when I'm isolated enough to control what I perceive to a reasonable degree. The mere presence of another human distracts me from my thoughts. So usually it's just better to lay down the tracks beforehand and hold on for your dear life hoping that you won't derail. Because it would take me a long time to come up with good examples of "nice surprises" I didn't instantly decorticate into a cynical view of human behaviour, before they ever had a realistic shot at soothing my anxieties... (nor have over time)


Such examples could probably enumerated on a hand and reminding myself of them makes me feel like I want to rip my hearth out.

Tried to go to bed/sleep at around 2am.
Now it's 5am and the sun's coming up. I seem to lack the discipline to commit to sleeping until I'm utterly exhausted these days... of course, it doesn't help that my phone plugs in beside the bed and as such is always within reach.   

I think part of it might be the various different things I have to stress about currently, too. I keep putting off doing anything about them, so the pressure just builds up and I dig my hole deeper through inaction.

Yeah, that could be it. Similar issues with Dioxine (maker of X-Piratez).

It's not so much that it's a euphemism for wrong as it is that alt right views are the less extreme version? of Nazis and so are usually considered wrong to people who aren't horrible

He meant modern right-wing, politically.

They know how to do fascism without appearing like they actually want to genocide everyone that doesn't look like them, more... make them not be "here", in which "here" is wherever they live.

Basically white supremacists with good PR.

Got to talk to my neurosurgeon today after I woke up. He is worried about the rest of my spine, because he found a lot of damage and "crappy bone" up further, and wants to image the rest of my spine at the end of the new year. I may be a legitimate candidate for a fully bionic spine.

Max, it may be the wrong point to take from your post, but...

Bionic spine?!

I think I'm not going to eat today I hope I'll faint motherfuckers I can not be bothered to care only for my well being when it serves the interest of others. This is what you fucking get, when I go to the store I put money on the table to get product and that's the end of the story... But somehow employers allways have a myriad of exceptions and are granted the kind of leniency no worker gets.
