My sig should say just what I think.
Even honest people with a managed addiction
/dependency that they have no desire to end or change and are otherwise functional and decent people have to lie and do so routinely because of society and law.
There's really nothing wrong with their dependent behavior. Just the NARCisstic society they're forced to live in on top of dealing with a chemical dependency.
Not all addicts have personality disorders. We only notice the ones that do because the ones that do the dope and keep it together manage to effectively stay out of sight out of mind.
People who don't do drugs
still have personality problems. I've known some stone cold sober psycho people. The truth is that a lot of so-called junkies have the same story. It usually starts with chold molestation or other major trauma combined with a lack of parental presence of some kind, flounders around state care, dope, jail, criminal organizations, and ends in prison.
These people reflect OUR sins of social welfare and our apathy in considering our proclivity to the chaos of what it means to be human. This sector grows with every depression which they hit is harder and harder with every wave they convince us to spend a good share of our resources on weapons and warfare.
It has nothing to do with drugs. The idea that it does, or that drugs caused this cultural phenomenon is absurd. No, it is human nature to be partially chemically dependant. Not every will be and we can tolerate those who are because it doesn't mean that everyone will be as well if we finally sit down and act like decent human beings to them.
We're the ones being savage. They're the ones we've neglected to show another way of doing things.
This is the decay of the decay of the mind that every feels today. We've forgotten that we are in fact, not alone. No man is an island, and neither is mankind. If we don't think of ourselves as such, then those with a larger perspective that have no concern for our petty selfish endeavors and vicious blood we shed over them will see us as nothing more than the irrational, self-centered, and angst-ridden self-injury and accident prone teenagers we are.
Fortunately, if life out there is anything like life is here, and the fractal nature of life suggests that it is on some planes of reality then it's sort of their responsibility to show us how to grow up.
...but I digress...
These social cliches and their cliche behaviour are not representative of the substances they use. Other people are lying to you and saying that. It's propaganda, the art of mass delusion, it is an ancient and occult tradition.
