When the world is mad, what happens to the sane?
First and foremost, your best defense internally is not taking yourself too seriously. Never forget: It’s always possible you are mistaken, even deluded, about any number of things. Fundamental to the problem is the utter necessity of referencing those around us. Even if we come to think the world is crazy and can prove to our satisfaction the very facts of reality against the world, we had to get to that place with a little help from someone who taught us. It is simply not humanly possible to start from scratch in reasoning. Even your very real experiences are flavored by a certain amount of conditioning about what your physical pain and injuries mean, if anything. At a certain fundamental level, it’s not a question of what is real, but what can you work with, and what you have to ignore.
Second, there is little or nothing you can do to correct insanity on any scale, whether a single individual or all humanity. You can’t fix stupid, either. It’s hard enough fixing mere ignorance when people are asking you for information. You are not the truth police; that’s the fallacy which traps Gammas outside the mainstream with everything, not just human sexual response. Demand as much as you dare, but don’t expect much, in the sense you are ready for the worst.
Be ready to laugh whenever someone says something utterly stupid. Be ready to laugh a lot, because right now, there is a rising pervasive attack on our perceptions by those in powerful positions. Some of the most ridiculous crap is coming out of the MSM and controlled opposition right now, to the point you wonder if you woke up on the wrong planet, or perhaps an alternate reality. It’s ramping up even as I type this, where people ostensibly belonging to the alternative press are writing some of the most outlandish things.
One serious commentator actually says the dollar is not a credit instrument, and that credit cannot be said to push the demand curve outward. Every single dollar in existence, either as paper or numbers on a computer, is borrowed from the Fed, a private lending institution. Every dollar in existence is a debt owed to the people who own the Fed. And if credit does not artificially pull consumption earlier in time, we would never call it “stimulus.”
Meanwhile, I’d keep a serious bug-out bag handy.
