A regular person has to back down plenty. Thats why they head for the hills and kill cars in their backyard. Play loud music late at night, drink too much, smoke weed and take pills of dubious origin.
A regular person has to put up with injustice normalized and legal, they have to nod their head to incompetence, racism, sexism and environmental destruction. It’s part of feeding the family.
A regular person has to push it down and bottle it up. Put it in the jam or home made wine. That’s why the homemade stuff tastes so good.
A good friend and father is worried about his daughter and family.
They are conspiracy theorists. She called him to dissuade him from getting vaccinated for Covid. Bill Gates, nanobytes in the serum, government taking over and the rest of the bullshit.
It’s unfortunate. He is worried, not so much about them not being vaccinated, but what rabbit hole they may go down next. Each one of those holes get deeper.
I understand not trusting the government due to their incompetence, but that’s also why they can be trusted.
Those kids are in their thirties, not quite kids anymore, they have kids of their own, they like to think of themselves as living off the grid.
They have internet service, to keep the kids busy on their iPads and to keep feeding them the latest conspiracy theories.
Neither parents have jobs. Considering their view of the government, they have no problem signing up and receiving every bit of assistance the government is offering.
Regardless of their beliefs, and contradictions, it seems like a difficult life to maintain.
