    right on. our society, in the media anyway--maybe not in real life, glorifies many cruel and negative ways of relating, either for the shock factor (because we're lazy, bored dumbasses), or for the almighty dollar.

    I don't know. But tomorrow I'm buying that 7-layer Protection Spell & Mojo Booster I heard about. It really looks like the Wish Fulfillment Charm Mum got me for my birthday a couple years back just isn't going to cut it anymore. If manipulators are manipulating permission, oh man, I, I just don't know.

    Oh, and don't forget manipulation via the news media to influence public opinion.

    That's not a very empowering and constructive way to look at it. You are so afraid of what someone might be doing that you fail to see what they are doing.

    Also, ever wonder why your mom actually bought you that Wish Fulfillment Charm?

    Ever wonder why I asked you if you wondered why your Mum bought you the charm?

    Hey, quick question, leading and loaded: is everything I say now suspect?

    Unless I go ahead and deal properly with my ancient feeling, yeah? Because it is the origin of the things I claim. It's personal, individual, and I'm mean to try and pseudo-intellectually universalise it. I should properly deal with the feelings before trying to lay claim to truth.

    Is that what happened here?
