Let me paint a fun picture for you. There's this thing humans do called trade. We have found in greater and greater numbers throughout our history that we are capable of far greater things when we are able to divide our labor and work together, simply providing for the want/needs of the people we knew and cared about in return of having our wants/needs provided. It was mutual, and our labor became worth what we were able to provide. This is why tribes of human beings became the most efficient creatures at dominating regions for themselves. Sometimes throughout our history, groups of people have conspired together to rob, larger, productive groups of people. Sometimes this money was taken as a form of "protection" by a gang promising not to hurt you as long as you funded them. Sometimes that gang had better weapons than you and forced you to consent to pay what you "owed" them for the protection they provided you. This scheme is called a racket. It protects you
This is my diary. I'm hoping it will help me live in a liberated way where I have nothing to hide. In some entries there are a lot of thoughts without much structure and in others it strongly constrains their construction. Regardless of form, composing my thoughts allows me to discover myself. If you're reading this, you'll know much about me that I may never know how to tell you, so if any of the thoughts and feelings here awaken a discovery of your own, I hope you'll share it with me.
