The Crazy On The Corner: La Mesa
I am lucky to be living in a time and place in human history where I have the freedom to speak, out loud. Historically, a woman like me would have been permanently locked in a mental institution.
While much has changed in female human history, many things have not; women and girls are still used as sex slaves; men still take ownership of women, and kill them with impunity and women are still killed publicly by order of law.
I feel the pain of my sisters throughout the world who suffer the willful ignorance of half the world’s population. I understand the self-hatred driving those women, whose mission in life is hating other women.
This is my message to you all “we are doomed.” From the moment we are born, we are doomed to die.
What have you done with your time? Have you been led by your fear down the dark path to slavery? I believe the world is seething with thwarted passions, inappropriately expressed anger, and fear of the authentic self.
If you feel homicidal, suicidal, or sex crazed, you are normal. Half the world is right now trying to become master of the other half. The inside of you mirrors the outside.
I say rejoice in you normality. Throw political correctness to the wind and reveal yourself as the hate filled ignoramus that you are.
Let go of your fear, then breathe deep, your first breath of true freedom. It is better to be an ernest ignoramus, than a self-righteous sociopath bent on power and tyranny.
Powerful is the knowledge of your impending end, live each day as if it were your last.
So say, “all who were doomed before you.”
