It really is just awful people taking what they can for as long as they can because they can...

I used to feel sorry for people at the bottom of the hierarchy.

But... That's because I've spent a fair bit of time associating with people who have basically *opted out of the hierarchy* (it's others who view them as being at the bottom).

I've spent more time with people at the bottom of the hierarchy who will take help when it is offered and then will go on to kick at the people on the bottom.

Then you start to think that they deserve to be at the bottom. Even if the people at the top are no better than...

Then you see how you are starting to despise all people... All people, equally...

It's an awful view of life.

I don't want to live in that world.

This place is... Profiteering from the margins. You get a city or whatever and then you get the rubbish birds crying for their piece of pie along the edges. There is a university, here. And that brings people wanting employment. But this place is the edge... The rubbish birds opportunistically...

I think they think this is the best they can hope for in life etc...

But what happened to things like conducting yourself with some personal integrity?

I guess it's supposed to be a test. That's how we justify it. I don't buy it. I guess it is a test. Not so much by design. I guess the people who are in charge of the sh*t... Are people who f*ck*d up.

That's been the thing with me, I guess. People start with the assumption that I f*ck*d up because of me doing what I'm doing at my age. Why would I want to play with the children? What is wrong with me?

I didn't realise I'd be forced to live in the rubbish with the rubbish. I didn't realise how communal undergraduate university has become. I didn't realise that you simply can't do things in this country like read a book under a shady tree... I didn't realise that you need to live in the private sphere as much as possible... Because... The public sphere is just awful. It's bullies taking what they can for as long as they can because they can... It's everyones kid whose been taught to cry 'help ME! help ME! help ME!' constantly...

It will be progress, here, if people are allowed to look after themselves. It will be, indeed.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Lets see if I manage to live by myself... Someplace where I won't be persecuted by bullies noise pollution etc next year.

It's a nasty nasty world.
