On Insecurity

People tend to gaslight you calling you "insecure" when society thinks you're a piece of shit and you internalize it. What they fail to realize is value merits a quantitative assessment, not a qualitative one. If you are of low value then yeah you are going to feel...

Modern Psychology and Suicide

Modern psychology is framed as the last defense against a suicidal person's impulses but this is framing it too charitably. Modern psychology is all about the atomized individual. It is wrong to need people as it is wrong to have people to need you. This weakens...
