Well, yes and no. I don't think someone just woke up one day and thought "hmm I think I'll create a religion to control the masses" but more like spirituality and religion evolved over time both shaping and being shaped by society, and spirituality was co-opted by ruling class/ men/ etc and used to control people.

Its not just the sexualization of youth its mostly a sexualization of power. It's all about power because their minds experience an overload in power and like a drug they have to keep upping the power they have to experience the ... gross feelings they get from it I guess? So they have so much power and they need more, so they go from sexualizing youth to sexualizing children etc. For a lot of people it goes beyond fantasy and they infantalize women everyday me included. At work, school, within social groups whatever. Because there are hierarchies of power within gender and age groups.

Shes really skilled at making videos . She is entertaining and at the same time can get a complex message across and make it easy to understand. I really enjoyed her video decrypting the alt right and I show it to a lot of people.

However she can be problematic at times... For example when she justifies cultural approptiation. (She dresses in sugar skull makeup, kimono , etc and kinda makes fun of white people but says its not that big of a deal )Other than that she has a lot of nazi costumes and I know it might be just for the video but is it really necessary..? She has so many personalities on the show that its hard to tell what she really thinks or if shes just trying to appeal to a mass liberal audience for example shes anti alt right but makes fun of antifa a lot ..

I try to keep busy to get my mind off things.. do something active outdoors, spend time with those I'm close with... I find if I do something nice for someone else rather than myself I feel great like cooking someone a nice meal or helping someone with something or giving someone a present . Then doing stuff like exfoliate ! moisturize ! I have a long bath.. put Healing Clay on my face ! put coconut oil in my hair overnight. smoke some weed ! Go out and listen to some live music. Exchange massages. not in that order but yeah.

No I think they would be spending too much money on resources and for them to do that it would have to be theft over $5000 depending on where you live there are different laws for when you steal over a certain amount.

I went to a store where I bought everything. The towers went off anyway. The lady rescanned my items then grabbed my bag out of my hands and walked through the sensors, then made me walk through the sensors. Didn't steal anything but since I didn't know my so called rights I just went with it. Now I would tell her hey you can't do that unless you saw me conceal something... if it's the same in Klanada. The other time I was at a liquor store and the LP kept staring at me the whole time. It was making me really uncomfortable and I did not plan to steal. I kept walking around because I'm really indecisive and he was making me uncomfortable so I couldn't think.. then he asked me really loudly across the store "Can I help you?" in a really aggressive voice. I was really embarrassed. I said no just looking. But he walked up to me and demanded to know what I was looking for. I didn't know what to say so I just said a fruity drink low in sugar... then he called over a sales person really loudly and the whole thing was in a really demeaning aggressive attitude... and everything he was saying he was saying so loudly so everyone could hear and everyone was staring at me.. so yeah I basically care about alarms because i have been publically humiliated as a result of alarms/ LPs/ do gooder workers

Clothes and Shoes. Back from the City into a smaller community and its so much easier to lift clothes and shoes because a lot of places at the Mall don't even have tags/ alarms. Not me, but someone recently just went into La Senza and blatantly grabbed a huge box of panties and walked out lol. Everyone saw him yet nothing happened, mall security was not effective and didn't even show up. Art supplies too at Michaels.
