Probably when I realized what the adult world was really like. I mean, none of those things ever affected me directly, but at some point I understood that “society” doesn’t mean well at all, doesn’t try to understand things that run counter to it and doesn’t take suggestions, and is run by people who basically manipulate everyone else with misinformation, competition, addiction, and other divisive tactics, and when that doesn’t work it falls back on coercion through good old fashioned threats of violence, for no higher purpose so that they and theirs can stay on top forever.

However I try not to think of these things now, and just put one foot in front of the other to reclaim my innocence….I think it’s just a state of mind, really. It doesn’t have to end with childhood, you just have to set up your life in such a way to let it back in.
