A little about myself... I just recently turned 21 and utterly dislike people.
I just finished being indoctrinated with my first few years of propaganda (AA) and have my certification that I've accepted it. Luckily, I only had
to take out a $1000 loan in order to pay for it, but it's okay because my work let me come back after I left to go to school, even though the degree
has nothing whatsoever to do with my job. I'm what you would call one'dem "independent" thinkers, which means that I had a hard time sitting
through class because of how boring it was. Funny, cause I have an exceptionally boring job but manage to make it through that. Probably because I can
think of whatever I want while I'm working, whereas while I'm in school I'm expected to at least PRETEND I was paying attention.
In past years I've done a bit of lurking on this site but eventually stopped because it was pretty depressing. Depressing to think that there is A) a
group of people secretly controlling the world and B) that the only reason I'm not in it is because of the time period I was born in. I eventually
stopped thinking that there was an explicit group of people and began thinking of it more conceptually as people wanting to make sense of their world.
In other words, it's not that there actually IS a small group of people controlling the world, it's that there is a fundamental human need to
understand the world, and one particular way that that need is being fulfilled is by making a group of bad guys who control the world's finances, and
through them, everything else.
I just got done taking a Sociology of Deviance class, and I made a 30 minute presentation on the self-help/positive thinking/self-esteem movement that
started in California in the 1980's and how it has become a method for social control.
I'm not sure what else to say, so if anyone has any questions, wants to welcome me, tell me I've won the lotto, etc. have at it
