We live in a world of implicit censorship. Wrongthink is ridiculed at best and persecuted at worst. Movements like #MeToo seek to criminalize and ostracize many, when in some cases, no wrong has been done. Demographics are silenced because they are not in the in-groups of the power-elite. Nowhere is this more evident than with matters of psychology. Neurotypicals (both in the “non-antisocial” and “normal” sense) are afraid of the neurodivergent, and thus seek to silence what they fear, so that the horrors they face become without voice. By removing the fangs of the perceived enemy, there is nothing left but the will of those in power. This should be considered unacceptable, but often it is only the marginalized that truly understand the power play involved.
I’m not going to go into a huge recount of the newest forums endeavor, but I encourage everyone to check out the reboot of Psychopath Tree. The technology stack for this go-around is more modern and should make for a more enjoyable experience for any antisocial/psychopathic types that want to join us over there for discussion and chat.
As with all of my endeavors, I will not seek to monetize this. This is a gift from me to you, in part to help alleviate my boredom – and the assumed boredom of others.
More details may be found on Twitter, @Psychopath_Tree, and at the site itself.
I hope to see all of you there!
Identity politics are rubbish. Nothing more than an echo chamber of voices belonging to souls unwilling to embrace their uniqueness, they hinder progress for humanity as a whole. We should celebrate uniqueness, not sameness, and movements in the name of sameness inherently restrict an individual’s uniqueness.
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. I’ve been focused on other side projects and, frankly, have had little informative or otherwise entertaining to say. The hosting for the website has been renewed for an additional two years, however, so this site will remain a resource even if I have nothing new to say. For my longtime readers, thanks for bearing with me during my creative drought. That said, let’s jump in for a rant that I’ve had bubbling for quite a while now.
If you believe yourself to be a victim, you will be. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. I’m so exhausted from those around me in varying degrees of closeness complaining that their life seemingly won’t improve. No shit, Sherlock. If one is so enthralled with the notion of failure or victimhood that they will not consider anything as an alternative, then that is exactly what they will receive in life.
I loathe writing posts on the maturation and mindfulness that I’ve acquired in recent years. The reason for this is that I do not want the reader to frame these posts under the romanticized light of redemption. When I think of redemption, I think of love stories where someone cleans up their act in order to be welcomed back with open arms by a paramour. Or, I think about the mythical hero of the day, throwing away their background and the odds in order to heroically save those around him. These are tired tropes. I would propose that the antisocial is beyond redemption but not necessarily for the reasons you may think.
