    The secret to "blending in", being "normal" and having matching socks everyday is obviously.. buy black, can't go wrong.

    That's about the only life lesson I feel qualified to give right now.
    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    I think most people are under the illusion that they are "abnormal"... Or some how deviating from what is expected of them from society, societal constructs and societal contracts, contracts for which simply being born and existing is cause enough to be taken for implied consent.

    But the whole punch line of the joke is that these societal constructs and societal contracts are all lies, entrapping us all against our will.. . we all know "normal" isn't always right, but it's a societal taboo that to few wish to tackle.

    So we stand paralysed and stiff, shackled by the chains of our own insecurities and fears, afraid to deviate from "the norm", for fear of being considered the "outsider".
