Broken Men of the New Society

Darryl was a difficult patient I had been treating for several years. A stocky man in his forties, he shuffled into each appointment with a walking stick. At first sight, the stick gave him a distinguished quality, but then a trace of his bare belly showed beneath a T-shirt that never quite covered his bulging gut.

Every appointment would begin the same way.

“How are you travelling, Darryl?” I’d ask.

“Yeah, alright,” he’d mumble. “F— insurance pissing me off as usual.”

    The author of this article was just another elitist, albeit a pleasant and polite one. He combined a certain degree of sympathy for the unwashed/uneducated masses with a more typical contempt. (He says this more or less straight out in the piece.)

    Why should we be forced to “adjust” and embrace globalization? Because he says so? The nationalist model of a slowly declining (but presumably, eventually stabilized) homogenous population works well enough, for instance, in Japan. Maybe they didn’t get his memo. I’m sick of these arrogant intelligentsia telling average people what’s good for them. F*ck ’em.

    Drivel written by a head shrinker who is flirting with violating his doctor/client confidentiality.
    If I was one of his patients, I’d fire him, and the patients mentioned should sue. The man needs his license revoked.

    I grew up with a schizophrenic therefore unavailable father who died at 40 in an accident of his own making. My mother was only interested ing her own happiness and neglected me and my two siblings. You can sneer all you want but there are some valuable insights in this article.

      Name one.
      As I see it, its just another elitist swine expounding how white men (with his help) fold under very mild adversity.
      Life is tough all over. Those who whine and moan and feel entitled because of that eternal verity just need a good thrashing and thrown back on the horse.
