Reclaiming Individual Sovereignty

Everything we experience can be overwhelming; just the raw nature of being alive can grate on the soul and leave one’s reserves of willpower and courage depleted. But what is the solution to this predicament? Is it right (or smart) to commit suicide if existence has become unbearable, or is there a better alternative to palliate the malaise of being? I’ve found it helps to view the world through a somewhat detached lens.

A Pandemic as a Fertilizer

I start writing to you today from quarantine. My eye is somehow inflamed. My conjunctivae are folding and bunching up when I move my eyes, which I believe to be conjunctivochalasis, and late last night I had an episode of what I believe to be corneal erosion. The doctor’s offices are all closed, so I am in a strange position of limbo. Of course, this won’t kill me, but it’s very uncomfortable, and the compounding effects of the world seemingly breaking apart, combined with health issues and a mind that is plagued with the talking heads on TV so brilliantly instilling fear, is intense.

Can’t face the world unculturebound Unshielded experience is too raw It might confound if felt too freely So freedom must be caged with law Controlling frames are worn with will For God’s country and protection Lest someone’s thinking overspill And point in an unenclosed direction Anesthetize your strangeness Say our loving mindset masters We’re taught how to not transgress By edustructional broadcasters They, together, teach the rules Of this playperform
