The Culture Shock They Never Mention

On September 7, 2021, I was working as a legal asistant and legislative aide for state legislator and in this capacity I recieved texts and a call from someone who was supposedly his client. He claimed to be a schizophrenic bipolar person in the Al Canon jail on a contraband phone. It soon devolved intoContinue reading “The Culture Shock They Never Mention”

Tangible Results, Awareness Raising, and the Lack of Realpolitik on the Left

There is an anti-bullying activist of C-list fame whom I attended college and had a bad relationship with in Charleston. I won’t mention her name although she is barely famous enough I wouldn’t feel guilty about doing so. She had a suicide attempt after her fellow high school students made a Facebook page and trashedContinue reading “Tangible Results, Awareness Raising, and the Lack of Realpolitik on the Left”

The Limits of Psychology: Balkanization and the Lack of Intersectionality in Psychological Science

L’Appel du Vide is a common symptom of anxiety disorders and one I experience and have experienced regularly throughout my life. In fact, as a child, it was one of the worst symptoms I had but at no point growing up could I discuss it with anyone safely. The fact is most of the psychologistsContinue reading “The Limits of Psychology: Balkanization and the Lack of Intersectionality in Psychological Science”

Disability & Metaphorical Asexuality

I refer not to literal asexuality in the sense of being an asexual and I don’t refer to not having sex in the literal sense. I have written about incels before on this blog and their etiology is not the lack of sex but their being adults in an adult culture with an adolscent-style leagueContinue reading “Disability & Metaphorical Asexuality”

Euthanasia & The Left

Legally, I support euthansia. I don’t, generally, believe the coercive force of the state should be used to stop consenting adults doing things and, mostly, I despise, loathe, and hold in the most abysmal circles of contempt the coercive force of the state when used on private citizens. I don’t view what should be legalContinue reading “Euthanasia & The Left”

Paradoxes of the Suicide Rate

Is society opposed to suicide? While as a normative value, by the indications of its expressed position, it is resoundingly opposed to suicide and wishes to reduce the incidence of it to the maximum degree possible the suicide rate in Western societies is exploding. Curious is it that a society with such a strong normativeContinue reading “Paradoxes of the Suicide Rate”

Nursing Anxiety: How to and Not to Treat Acute Attacks

After everything that went wrong in handling my autism came the consequences of such poor conditions. That would be the PTSD, anxiety, and depression that emerged from the inferno that was my childhood and adolescence. As I’ve said in earlier articles, I have no interest in feeling sorry for myself and I am scientifically describingContinue reading “Nursing Anxiety: How to and Not to Treat Acute Attacks”

Cocaine, Authority, and Alcohol: The Stupidity and Cowardice of Bureaucrats

The institutions in Charleston, facing major substance abuse epidemics, are stuck in the 1980’s and 90’s in terms of how sophisticated they are in trying to reduce the social ills. Witnessing them, it is amazing how anachronistically lame it is. It, ironically, follows the general trend of coolness which has generally gotten retarded. (I canContinue reading “Cocaine, Authority, and Alcohol: The Stupidity and Cowardice of Bureaucrats”

The Death of Humanity: Lessons From the Mice of Universe 25

In the 1960’s, a psychologist in Chicago did an experiment in population density. It was to determine how populations react to increasing density with no material stresses and under ideal living conditions. Famously, within two years, the mice in the study abandoned their young, fought each other regularly, and stopped procreating. Eventually, all of theContinue reading “The Death of Humanity: Lessons From the Mice of Universe 25”

Cutting and Suicide in the Deep South

                For all of Charleston’s faults, it has become more politically liberal and socially progressive and with that came a greater sympathy for those enduring personal traumas. While it has been far from perfect, the northern transplants that have made this city more progressive have not taken what may be considered the boys-will-be-boys approach toContinue reading “Cutting and Suicide in the Deep South”
