Glad to be aBOARd
like this guy already
Quite the welcome, nice to meet everyone.
Halloween is a really good example of the declining social capital in America. It requires safe neighborhoods, spending money on strangers with no real assured return, a sense of festivity, and a shared culture. As people lose what ties them together, not only celebrating it, but trick or treating as a good example, fades away until children spend the night on their smartphones instead, and their parents spend the night watching late night talk show hosts spout propaganda before taking their daily half dozen painkillers and sleeping pills to medicate them into the next day.
The overall faith in the American system and spirit is what has binded people together for centuries, and now that people are losing faith in the established power's ability to solve their laundry list of problems, they turn inward. Many isolate themselves, but some search for solutions outside of the accepted boundaries of social acceptance.
^^The less white my neighborhood becomes, the worse Halloween gets.
I didnt have a single kid come by
Not one, but of course i live in a ghetto stronghold
Kinda bumed me out, i miss the kids getting excited over the candy, and seeing there costumes and shit.
Neither did I. I remember when I used to go house to house and the streets were lined with kids, groups of kids and their parents. Laughing, chatting. Stopping at some doors to talk about things, various things. It didn't really matter, what. What mattered is that they all could go out in the street on a night that was supposed to be scary and be, well, a community.
The unfortunate fact is that the next time we'll probably see the communities we remember will be after we build our own.
i had to work
My area used to throw community trunk or treats and the streets would be filled with people and their children I went out tonight and only found one group of people. Our neighborhood had no one at all.
i was in the hospital
Kids have been using holidays as a excuse to enduldge in self distructive behavior like substance abuse.
I heard, why? What happened? If you're not comfortable saying it that's fine.
i was getting treatment for bulimia
"bulimia is the last implicit stand of white identity"
Did the treatment work? How long were you in there? I didn't know you had it.
yes it did and about 3 weeks or so
What's the treatment?
Rain in Houston along with Game 6 of didn't help attendance for Halloween.
