Oh, how one wishes sometimes to escape from the meaningless dullness of human eloquence, from all those sublime phrases, to take refuge in nature, apparently so inarticulate, or in the wordlessness of long, grinding labor, of sound sleep, of true music, or of a human understanding rendered speechless by emotion!
—  Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

people are so fucking selfish about getting a laugh and feeling good and justified in that laugh that they’ll even justify the mental damages it creates. as if we’re not in 20 fucking 15 with a better understandind of the complexity and sensitivity of the human mind enough to try and make changes in the way our society approaches parenting or avoids causing more damages in early childhood. like how could you be so lazy and selfish at the same time so as to say you can’t think of any other form of discpline than the one that makes you laugh at the expense of a child’s mind it’s so damn sick!
