And you have no clue: what does a struggle constitute? where does one serve
your pedagogical framework? Who are worthy of becoming educated and who are
worthy of touching electronics.

I guess that the vast majority of us "schizophrenics" have to just sit
there, work menial jobs, only to retire on disability, in a shitty
apartment in a functional exclusion zone in the tenderloin. For it's your
world that constructs what any of us are capable of. It's your world that
has functionally created the only viable reality one may live in.

All alternatives are foreclosed.

And you will pin your mistakes on this one individual.

And actually make him live in a conspiracy.

When he was just a regular person to begin with.

If everyone were "schizophrenic" and you were the only "normal," then you'd
be the only one to be labeled. We'd call you the "normal," construct
discourse around that word as problematic, and force you to work menial
jobs for the rest of eternity, because you wouldn't be schizophrenic, or
just in general paranoid.

Even if you were capable of something extraordinary.

We'll push you down.

We'll make impossible advancement.

Because it's your bosses job to put up road blocks.

We'd fuck with you too. We'd assert your normal reality, make you over
identify with your symptomology, and reduce the capital behind your way of
knowing to 0. Your epistemology will be constantly dismissed, as your very
being, actions and context would be rendered vacuous in the vacuum of your
identity. All of us "schizophrenics" would become the judge, jury and
trial. We'll wait for you to click an ad or watch a video online, anything
a "normal" would watch. I think a list of non-comprehensive examples would
be the following:

1. Stock-photography of cats.
2. "regular" porn, only heterosexual missionary style.
3. All mainstream media.
4. Start-up news
5. More start-up news.
6. Look at more start-up news.
7. Read emails form your boss at whatever time they choose to send it to
you.
8. Work on a hobby, because you aren't allowed to do what you are really
interested because of the psychic control that capital produced.
9. Join a group that asserts it's authority over anyone not "normal." It
would be hard, considering you'd be the only normal person. But, I think
meetup.com would be a good place.
10. Reject all conspiracy theories and other non-linear patters of thought
as "schizophrenic" or "paranoid."

The problem here is I've accepted it now, the world is just what it is.
Moreover, I will likely end up retiring on disability, right? After working
a menial job at a coffee shop.

No Al, I won't be taking a break.
