Sort of a rant. Two thorough edits and it might've been an essay.

You seemed to respond to the emotion -- frustration -- and the general context moreso than the to details, but if it was details I was worried about, I'd be posting on some other forum.

Mine does seem a righteous and maybe marketable rage. But whose doesn't, to the person feeling it first-hand?

Sanity seems to be a gradient of acceptable speech and behavior, boundaries of which seem defined as much by social context as by formulaic reason. Social context is yet another fluid filter -- the measure depends on which context is chosen for the measure, with even similar-seeming contexts widely varied along axis of time, place and circumstance.

I can recognize when it gets dangerous for me. When I wake up thinking of dying, that's probably condition orange, toward the red end of the scale. When I see people dying around me, or dying of similar frustration, I know I might be on dangerous ground, but that doesn't tell me how well prepared I am to handle it, on that day.

I can say that the feeling of stability seems to follow both economic and social contexts in my life, and it seems to be a tendency that if I get one right, the other is wrong, for me. That dichotomy - intolerance for forced social performance for economic reasons -- is the more narrow tolerance I seem bound by but which the vast majority of my peers seem to suffer through with little complaint.
