This blog is loosely organized in categories. The category titles connote as follows:
Betrayal and stupefaction: we begin with enthusiasm, which turns into pain upon betrayal. Then we expect shame, and get brazenness instead. Finally, we end up in silence, numbness, psychic death. We thought it was love, but it was actually a rape.
Prayers for relief: your friend doesn’t need pity. Your friend needs a map, and a light, and a way out of this darkness.
Staring into a darkened hallway: is it brave, or merely psychotic, to face the truth, when there is no solace in the truth? This doesn’t feel healthy.
The predatory presidency: looting as a form of statecraft, statecraft as a form of looting. The best way to rob a country is to rule one.
