Books at the Public LibraryBack in the 2000's I frequented the public library. When I did I at times would go read books on subjects about our major societal woes and moral issues; child sexual abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, incest, rape, teen pregnancy, alcoholism and underage drinking, sexual harassment, violence in schools, children with disabilities, poverty and homelessness, drug abuse, and drug screenings, gun control, the death penalty, and dropping out of high school.What I found in many of these library books are inaccurate and misinformation, stories of people who've been in certain horrible situation who only go by their first name only, one-sided stories with personal biases, passing the buck and blaming the wrong people for our societal woes, and insisting the only solutions to these societal woes are more conventional and increasingly conservative solutions, which do the exact opposite of it's intended purpose.Personally I do not trust any of the literacy at the library. I have a good reason why; the books at the library provide the wrong answers to our problems and only make things worse. On top of all of it there is no humanity. If there is any humanity to be found there is inadequate humanity. The rhetoric is not only bias, but it's also been sterilized.I will give you an example of what I'm getting at; when it comes to drug and alcohol abuse the library books say that the cure for alcoholism is alcoholics anonymous, twelve steps, and complete abstinence from drugs and alcohol. The biggest problem is that AA and twelve steps isn't right for everyone. There is a reason why outreach isn't for everyone, it follows the "One size fits all" philosophy. Humanity doesn't follow that idea. "One size fits all" solutions to any of our societal woes does not fit everyone. One size does not fit all for a perfectly good reason, no one human mind thinks like the other. If you try to tell that to a health class teacher they will treat you like an idiot.Also, when it comes to information about alcoholism and drug addiction it's the same thing with the DARE and health class in high school. The information in these library books are bias, inaccurate, and misleading at best. Besides AA and twelve steps these books insist that the legal age to be an adult is 18 or older and the legal age to drink alcoholic beverages and partake in any vice one pleases being 21 or older is right and just and does make sense and makes it all about health wellness and responsibility, but there is no consistency with these laws and in this argument. Anyone who objects to the legal drinking age of being 21 or older is demonized treated like a criminal. On top of that DARE, health class, and library books about drug addiction and alcoholism do not attack any underlying causes and there is no humanity. This is exactly why a drug and alcohol free life isn't for everyone and no one likes to be told how to live.When it comes to child abuse the information is misleading, completely inaccurate, and incomplete. When it comes to emotional abuse the language the rhetoric blames the child's below normal intellect for the parents behavior towards the child. This is the same logic on Malcolm in the Middle, I don't find the comedy funny, and I take it as an insult to watch. In reality is the child is not the one to blame, the parents are the ones to blame. The child didn't deserve this. No child deserves any amount of abuse from his parents.It's the same thing in that same book with child sexual abuse. The same misinformation that we learned in grade school, all acts of child sexual abuse involve "bad touches". That information is vague, misleading, and inaccurate at best. Beyond that in information about child sexual abuse, just like in grade school, and with other information on these topics, as well as in health class and DARE is preachy and no one like to be preached at. The problems with child sexual abuse, incest, and rape go far beyond that.These books also have misleading statistics. Personally I don't base my life on statistics. For me I believe that statistics are completely inaccurate, unreliable, and only tell less than half the story. Human beings are not statistics. When it comes to statistics there is no humanity.These are the reasons why I don't trust anything the public library says. I'm a nonconformist who will turn to alternative sources of information. I will look online for alternative solutions to our societal woes. As a nonconformist I would advocate for harm reduction for IV drug users and alcoholics. Here is a perfectly good reason why; Canada and Switzerland employs harm reduction. If the conventional methods don't work the do more harm than good. I find harm reduction a more humane method of dealing with our society's woes. It's a rational solution and it's a means to deal with problems that refuse to go away. It's better than treating people like criminals and demonizing them. These are all the more reasons why I don't rely on information at the public library and life's solutions don't come from library books.
Hypocrisy and Double StandardsSo here's another problem I have, double standards and hypocrisy. Why are people so hypocritical? Why do we have double standards? I'll tell you why, double standards and hypocrisy are the ultimate form of dishonesty. Double standards and hypocrisy is all around us. All forms of authority figures can be hypocritical. Our social institutions as an entirety have double standards. Our social norms have double standards and are full of hypocrisy. Even politicians are hypocritical. Hypocrisy are the nails that bind society together. Hypocrisy is the driving force that keep the world in check. Without hypocrisy and double standards this world and post modern civilization would fall to shit.
I'll give you an example of this; when it comes to freedom of speech and censorship public school education has no problem with censorship. Public school education likes to say they believe in freedom of speech, but they like to impose of set of policies that tell you what choice words you can and can't s
Okashicon 20' COVID 19 updateAs you all may know, I may not be able to come out to Austin Texas for Okashikon 2020 from July 17-19 due to the COVID 19' Coronavirus. I was expecting to do so and do my American Made Anime Panel there. Hopefully I would like to go to Little Rock Arkansas for Animecon Arkansas 2020 later in October. I would like to give my American Made Anime Panel there. I will post my American Made Anime speech eventually.
Reboots, Remakes, and Cash GrabsHere's another problem I have; Reboots, Remakes, and Cash Grabs. Why do we need them? It's something nobody needs. It's a corporate entertainment industry idea, an idea nobody wants. I'm talking about popular TV shows, movies, and music from earlier generations, mostly from the 60's to the early 90's. Besides, nowadays isn't quite obvious that the corporate entertainment industry is empty and bankrupt that they have to resort to producing popular TV shows, movies, and music that we've all heard from our childhood? These are pop culture icons that I've known from my childhood and I don't want a remake of them. I want something brand new and something that I want.
When it comes to music I don't want popular songs that I've heard as a little child sang by a pop singer from the younger generation. It won't make it better or more popular. It will just make it bland and be exploited by all of Corporate America for propaganda purposes so they can make profits off of goods that are of shitty q
