The Definition of Insanity

If you like things the way they are now, with teen suicide hugely on the rise, then keep doing what you’ve always been doing without changing anything. Keep to yourself, leaving others to die on the side the road (since they’re going to die anyway, and since you are certain (as people once were that the world was flat) that there’s nothing you can do anyway. But if, on the other hand, you feel it’s so dire that you know you and I must change our ways of living to something drastically different, then please start chanting NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO very vigorously so your eyes can be opened to the much greater potential you and we all have inside to actually make the world we live in a vastly much better place in which all teenagers and other people, younger and older, want to live, to dream big, to achieve meaningful goals, become somebody and be able to say at the end of our lives, “I’m so glad I made that change in my life so I could help so many other people in my world also become much happier and save so many lives who, like me, just wanted to be happy and fulfilled but felt cut down by and helpless in society the cruel and harsh way it is now.

    Someone who’s probably dead by now once said that the definition of Insanity is doing things the same way and expecting a different outcome. It makes perfect sense then that most, though fortunately not all people just going about their same daily life day in and day out are severely mentally impaired, no different than the people who are locked up in mental hospitals because they considered a danger to themselves and to others.

    Introverts and Extraverts #4

    My goal in my political movies is to turn the introverted expression of moderate progressive politics into an extraverted expression so loud that extraverts cannot help but notice, the way Randi Rhodes created a radio talk show of the nature of the typical extraverted right wing shows of that type that abound in people’s ears.

    Introverts and Extraverts #5

    Introverts have more trouble in relationships than extraverts. This is because extraverts are connected more to others than to themselves through a simplified social network of what can truly be defined as common sense. Introverts tend to find mates, desirable as they are, cumbersome and annoying, as also do extraverts. But introverts crave the oneness and soulmate-ness that comes only with introvert-introvert relationships, finding an ecstasy those rare and hopefully increasing over time moments of real connection between each other deep inner selves, made all the more so by the fact that few, if any, have ever connected with these deep places in the introvert. For this reason, there is a greater tendency among introverts to crave same-sex relationships due to the parallel yet independent nature of the commonality as opposed to the more complementary feel of opposite-sex attraction, which extraverts thrive on.
