AMEN

Thanks to my father, I have learned to screw those who think that the world should rotate as their head says, or worse it should rotate around itself. Three sentences and a few attitudes are enough to identify self-reported assholes, a few more behaviors for sneaky or victimized ones. It is not presumption, they are years of parasitization and direct experience with those who do not observe themselves, and in this life they will never do it. Get it out of your head that you can support their path by absorbing their garbage. The sooner you recognize them the sooner you take back your freedom. Nobody can help them, because 95% of the time it's not a solution they are looking for. They just want to pour the non-sense of their existence onto the neighbor (and in that non-sense there can be anything).
Precisely because they turn the root of their problems to everything but themselves, they are unable to be responsible for the harm they do to them and to those around them.
Even if you tell them. It applies to all relationships, know that.

Manzoni  ( ALESSANDRO MANZONI, a famous italian writer of XIX  century) had not seen the plague, but he had studied documents after documents. And then he describes the madness, the psychosis, the absurd theories about its origin, about the remedies. It describes the scene of a foreigner (a "tourist") in Milan who touches a wall of the cathedral and is lynched by the crowd because he is accused of spreading the disease. But there is one thing that Manzoni describes well, above all, and that he takes up from Boccaccio: the moment of trial, of discrimination, between humanity and inhumanity. Boccaccio had indeed seen the plague. He had seen friends, loved ones, relatives, even his father, die. And Boccaccio explains to us that the most terrible effect of the plague was the destruction of civilized life. Because the neighbor began to hate the neighbor, the brother began to hate the brother, and even the children abandoned their parents. The plague pitted men against each other. He replied with the Decameron, the greatest hymn to life and good civilization. Manzoni responded with faith and culture, which do not avoid trouble but, he said, taught how to deal with them. In general, they both responded in a similar way: inviting us to be human, to remain human, when the world goes mad.
Health without Freedom is what is guaranteed to Farm Animals. . This is why they define you as “Herd”. FREEDOM is not a luxury, it is not an extra, an ornament that embellishes if there is, but in short, precisely if one can afford it or else something more comes first concrete.. NO! FREEDOM is your right to live, to work, to be happy, to express yourself, to be there .. what’s more concrete than your right to be there ..? Sometimes I would like to find an arrow indicating “free life”. I don’t know, maybe in the process of some woods, where the light filters through and the heat doesn’t kill you. A kind of guarantee that you are going to meet like-minded people there. People to talk to about everything but vaccines, governments and passes. Just talk to. A place you reach to express absolutely nothing, no opinion, no point of view on hundreds of points of view by now worn and tired. The only thing that sometimes matters is the need for sharing among similar people. Vibrate in the same tribe. Simply because it feels good to be together on the road. Stay in touch with those who look like you and aren’t afraid to hug. Talking without a muzzle, talking about good things, without someone having to convince the other and the other having to defend who knows what. Talk about what seeds you planted, what bullshit you did, the music you wrote or the love at first sight that got you. Thus, without having to find that prosaic sense to the questions of living, the more you think about it the more they have nothing to do with Life.
Yes it’s true, it seems to never end. It seems that humanity is condemned to an eternal struggle just to buy bread. It seems. Lately I often answer with a phrase that I said to myself when I was working, giving exams and in the meantime I had my father in hospital for cancer. Be grateful that you can fight, because you mean you are Alive. No matter how long the fight seems, it is the purpose and the mood with which you face it that make it appear to be war or peace. Choose your path and you will no longer have any doubts that that bread tastes sublime. The whole system is made in such a way that man, without even realizing it, begins as a child to enter a mentality that prevents him from thinking anything else. It turns out that there is no longer a need for dictatorship now, because the dictatorship is that of school, of television, of what they teach you. Turn off the television and gain freedom. Even the way you dress and the haircut you wear makes you realize that you really don’t choose anything. Already becoming aware of this would show the world in other terms.
Keep walking, when you realize it you will already be with your buttocks on the ground, in that uncomfortable position that the puppets hold. Immediately after, a long and obstinate reflection begins on the convenience of staying there on the ground. But the companions are already moving away and the path is far from appearing a clear path, obvious. It is not even in question the idea of ​​staying there all life, with the mud filling the soul and the backpack, so that the time comes to get up, a difficult situation and unpredictable in its results. Perhaps it is better to continue to stay on the ground and drag yourself little by little but, in addition to being not very aesthetic, this is impractical (believe me, I have tried it): there will always be a hidden root or a thorn to hold you back, and then a new reflection on the comfort of sitting in the mud, despite the mosquitoes, flies and blue flies. Already determined to get up, which is always the most difficult thing, comes the complicated operation that consists of resting with your hands and knees where it happens and trying to place the heavy hood on your back (so simple, and heavy, is to carry the house on the shoulders: just a plastic sheet and a hammock). But the backpack insists on carrying other absurd things: some poetry books, some clothes, a mismatched sock, medicine for the world, food, a damp blanket … The load as a whole weighs tons (especially after the first hours of walking) and tends to get muddy whenever he feels like it, that is, almost always. By now tortoise face on the ground, it follows the act of putting one foot and getting up on the other, with the consequent protest of the knees; the horizon then widens and will always be foreign. With the eyes on the ground, the march is undertaken again until the next fall, which will occur just a few steps ahead. And history repeats itself …

    This is how I feel. Sometimes I want to just hit the ctrl+alt+delete of life and disappear to some alternate universe where this doesn’t exist and I can be left alone to live.

    Very powerful piece! And I couldn’t agree more! You were dead on when you referred to the mask as a muzzle because that’s exactly what they represent I believe. They don’t want us talking or socializing Nope! None of that! They can’t have it! The good news is that more and more people are beginning to push back against this nonsense!

      I do not belong to any country, I am a citizen of the world, I am not tied to a single place because I have lived in many places, places in the rest of the world, such as London and Paris, I speak several languages, I do not have a nationalist identity . I live in the world. I don’t believe in borders and nations. I am a citizen of this planet. I am only a traveler. I don’t take root in one place. I don’t like to be obsessed with a place. I didn’t choose to be born and live in Italy. I grew up here for a few years but then I lived elsewhere, I met people from all over the world. I live in Italy but I belong to the world and not to Italy. I know this is a complicated speech but for me it is like that. I have memories of my life in many places, not only in Italy.

    FQ, This is such bullshit
    I have been around the world.
    Twice.
    Seen it all.
    Done it all
    Done all the lovely ladies I could find, or would have me.
    But I always had a real sense of where I came
    ‘from’
    And where I would someday return
    “Citizen of the World?”
    That is such a trite and worn out phrase.
    Surely you can come up with something original.
    You are better than this!

      I said in this way to make people understand but my being is more complex than you think and it cannot even be explained with words.
      I don’t have a concept of time and country and world like you and others.
      It is comical to explain but in any case I am nowhere. You can laugh at this, ok, but this is my existence and not yours.
      You have had your experiences in certain places and I have had my experiences in other places. Everyone has their own life and ideas.

    I went to your blog and searched your posts but found more posts about your women than about your missions. Sometimes it looks like a womanizer’s blog and not a soldier’s. There are many photos and love texts, for all of them, for hundreds of women, even singers, and others. Woh!!! Searching for your “Navy” missions is impossible. You should make a very specific section because the posts about your women are mixed with your war experiences and it is very difficult to search.

      I used to have lots and lots and lots of photos of Texas and all the places I have been privileged and lucky enough to have lived and worked.
      Sadly,
      All those photos perished in a fire my last wife set after we split up and I went to Afghanistan.
      ‘Vindictive?’ She just passion. Bad passion. Volatile passion.
      I forgave her for burning all my documented memories.
      She could not destroy the ones in my head though. Those, no one can burn except me.
      I’m working on that as we speak.

      Maybe I can come up with some new Texas images…
      Starting with armadillos and Willie Nelson.

      I did a cursory scroll of my blog.
      Yeah, lately I have been writing a lot about all the women I admire and love, but it is not all that.
      There are many, many, many other things I have recently written of…
      Movies
      Politics
      Network news
      Current events
      Humorous things I have lived or witnessed…
      Rants
      et cetera
      But women fascinate me.
      I study them.
      “Write what you know,” someone once said.
      I think it may have been Hemingway, but I do not recall.
      And, BTW, there are several posts on HEM too.
      And, yes, lots of female references in those, but that is how HE lived HIS life.
      Hence,
      My fascination with him.
      Oh, and he was a decent writer as well…….

    I was speaking of how the ‘Community’ of Writers/Bloggers, who for the most part, support one another. It is not as easy for some us to to try to write.. This is in my ‘Wonderful World of Worthy Writers’ post.
    Damn!
    There I did it again.
    I advertised.’
    Everything I say these days seems to piss you off.
    Writers want exposure.
    Writers want readers
    Otherwise, what is the point?
    Now, I know I have often said that I ‘write’ for my own edification, and that is mostly true.
    But ever’ onct in a while it is nice to have someone read me, other than me.
    Catch my drift?

      I understand your need for visibility and to have readers but the WordPress community also has rules, and one of these rules is not to link sites in the comments because it is not a respectful thing. In addition, it is also disrespectful to steal followers from other bloggers by trying to bring them to your blog. If you don’t have enough people reading you, you may want to reflect and understand the reason for this absence. I have given you some advice on your blog but I doubt that you will follow these advice.
      I am not angry but your behavior, within my space, does not respect certain rules.
      This is not a forum, where everyone talks and cites and links, but a blog. A blog is a personal space where I can also just write as a hobby, to let off steam or to meet people. Everyone writes with a different motivation. I am not looking for visibility, I am not looking for readers, I am talking here about my life and about certain things, I also fight, and if I have contact with my readers, ok, if there isn’t, that’s okay. I live for myself and I don’t live for my readers. If you need readers, find a better way to get them but it is not right that you come here, in my space, to make your conquests. I accept those who write comments but I don’t like those who try to capture readers. So if a behavior is incorrect I point it out. If you link then everyone should link, and how would that end?
