Any wonder our culture in an organized fashion killed the tipi dwellers?
"You say it's a spiritual awakening, I say it's a mental breakdown, if you are going to act that way you deserve what you get, to be lied to by me and left alone without my support, I've told all my friends you are having a mental breakdown, refusing to get help and making my life hell, they have my back, don't expect their support, why don't you talk to somebody?", said the husband to his wife.
"You have to support yourself", said the male friend.
"I love licking pussy, will you take your clothes off and sit here naked while we talk?", said the male friend offering his support.
"You are a depressed drunk drug-addict, I know that to be true even though I've not seen or spoken to you in 17 years, I'm sorry, but you are on your own with this", said the female friend.
"Just ignore her".
"She thinks Dick Cheney, not Osama Bin Laden, was the overseer of the terrorist attacks on 9-11-01. She's nuts."
"People who don't trust the government are scary. She is scary."
A superfluous woman has needs. To get rid of her once upon a time you simply called her a witch.
How exciting were those public burnings! The sweet smell of burning flesh mixed with popcorn. They had to do something before cinema and TV. Right?
Today you call her mentally ill. And if she drinks beer or smokes pot you simply write her off as an addict.
If she's crazy or an addict best protect yourself. It's her duty to get the help she needs not your responsibility to be bothered.
