US homeless veteran rates. They volunteered therefore they can choose to recover. Or not.

Had a father in law who would yell at homeless Americans to “get a jerrb“, despite doing a few tours of Vietnam himself and knowing his own generation’s problems re-assimilating. Tie-dyed Republican, alcoholic and CEO.

I ask a third time - WHAT IF YOU WAS NONCED,

AS A KID?
I would imagine you would feel entirely subjected to the big other, as if any sufficiently authoritative figure could reach into you and eviscerate you without you being able to put up a fight. I would imagine quite the array of horrible complexes can spread from this, if we consider a complex as an arrangement of said invisible lens through which your experience is precognitively filtered.

I know people are at least half-kidding but framing my comments this way is scary for me. There's an asymmetry of caricaturing and/or misinterpretation. If you take the progressive stance, the worst I can misinterpret you as is an overzealous promoter of good, selfless values. If you challenge the progressive stance, you can be read as racist, misogynistic.

Quite the tag team of psychic pressures being exerted on this ideological space. Cross currents. Several fronts active at once. Keep the momentum, but not at the cost of a materially grounded progressivism.
