Nurturing the Soul for Sociopaths

1.         Take a long walk at a landfill.

2.        Write your name in the fresh snow with diarrhea.

3.        Savor the joyous laughter of children after you push their dad* down some stairs.

4.        Take a nice hot bath in a home you’re robbing, and don't be afraid to tell the victims tied up in a closet that even with their mouths covered in duct tape, their desperate pleas for help are messing with your karma.

5.        Limit other people’s screen time by stealing their phones.

6.        Slow dance with a total (and currently terrified) stranger on a crowded bus.

7.        Give your hostage a back rub.

8.        Sure, mass shootings are horrible, but so is keeping your emotions all bottled up.

 

*Would “grandfather” be funnier here?

The Most Important Issue Facing Today's Society


Income inequality is the most important issue of our time and has been for over twenty years. If we don’t reel in the billionaire class soon, we are doomed to live in the new feudal system. Because so few people have such an incredibly large say in the laws we make, our democracy is collapsing down upon us. Environmental and employment laws are being compromised as this new class of plutocrats is shaping society to fit their personal needs. They are the enemy of the people, pure and simple. We can and absolutely must tax billionaires out of existence.

Not Actual Change, but Maybe the Beginning of Change

Most of us understand that being a cop is a lousy job, one that most of us don’t want even after growing up watching a million movies and TV shows about cops. Maybe nothing has changed, but for a moment at least, things seem to have changed. That has to count for something. Maybe a cop will take a split second to consider that he may go to jail for murder, and make police understand that we have a complicated legal system of which they are a small part and that they, too are bound by the laws of this system.

The George Floyd case was quite different that the almost countless police shootings of civilians, both armed and unarmed. It seems that it’s the gun angle we’ll need to address soon if it’s real change we are after. We need fight against the aggressive gun culture of America, from gun control laws to how violence is shown in TV and movies. And we need to really ask ourselves if police should always be armed.

I’m not saying that I know what the answer will be, I’m just saying that the question needs to be asked and studied. The dramatic militarization of the police in recent years comes at a time when violent crime has been decreasing. So why are the police gearing up for a new civil war? Do they know something we don’t?
