Peanuts: Surviving Capitalism
Sick of Stress!
Let's do something about it.
Further to my earlier post titled: Stress Can Kill You and how we are being encouraged at every turn to worry, fret and fear the future:
I've had a stressful couple of days (my bank was having "issues" that caused some customers, myself included, to be unable to log-in to their online accounts, which really loused up my ability to take care of my end-of-month obligations. It also triggered the memory of my credit card having been hacked a couple of months ago -- after having one for 50 years with no problems!
It took some doing, but I was finally able to get assurance that my money is still in my bank account, and then all I had to do was come down from my freakout.
The more I mention the credit card hack to people, the more I find out that card (and ATM) hacking has become an epidemic. This and all sorts of other anomalies of capitalistic "progress" are having a sad effect on the nervous systems of the overall population.
Added to this was my appointment with the eye doctor, who, failing to find the dreaded glaucoma, the dire threat of which they had lured me in after a two-year absence, decided instead that I have "tiny" cataracts and gravely counselled me that I must, without fail, get checked every year from now on. Like a good little girl, eh?
The health professions know how to keep their offices well-stocked with customers and, if you're not careful, they will add significantly to your stress levels to that end, causing you to fear all sorts of things that may well never occur.
But which are more likely to occur the more stressed-out you become.
Take a look at this medical help site, which openly admits to stress being a life shortener, and then lists a whole pile of things they think we should worry about.
As a result of all of the above, and although I have successfully walked off a certain amount of my angst, I still can't seem to (or don't want to?) focus on any kind of indepth political research or writing.
So I took some time out to listen to a frank and honest talk by Dr. Gabor Maté regarding the health threats of capitalism. The man knows his stuff regarding what I'm convinced is a deliberate campaign to keep the general population as stressed, fearful and otherwise distracted as possible, while our political parties and our go-to professionals behave more and more like would-be dictators.
Please listen (below), and then watch Dr. Maté's other videos. He also has written some books; the one I'm currently reading is this: "When the body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection". I was lucky enough to find a brand new copy of it at my local library.
And, if you're interested, here are videos on his views regarding the teachings of the very popular Prof. Jordan Peterson. He's not in total agreement with Peterson -- whose extremely tense body language suggests to me a history of unresolved personal issues. More and more, Peterson looks on the verge of blowing his last fuse, and that can't be good at all.
