Very disheartening to see so much idiotic, misguided Russophobic and pro-Ukraine propaganda even on Neocities. Once again we see that the vast majority of westerners are easily-led sheep that will lap up whatever agendas their governments feed them. Putin is a bad guy for fighting to protect his people and his country's sovereignty from foreign aggressors, yet America is a beacon of Democracy despite how many

countries they have destroyed and how many people they have senselessly murdered or displaced? Westerners are taught to hate and fear China and Russia, yet the only real threats we face consistently come from our own governments and lying, censorship-happy media. Quite lamentable that in the so-called "land of the free", I have to rely on news outlets from other countries just to hear anything remotely close

Americans would lose their minds if China or Russia spend decades provoking them while planting troops and missiles along the Canadian and Mexican borders, but Russia is expected to just put up with this. If you agitate and threaten a bear enough times, no one with any sense will feel bad for you when the bear inevitably mauls you.

It's charming to see dictatorships that assault and crack down on innocent protesters, force millions of people to inject themselves with a dangerous experimental drug, and lock people up for smuggling FOOD during a lockdown, all suddenly coming out of the woodwork to stand up for "Democracy" in Ukraine. https://www.rt.com/russia/550675-trudeau-sanctions-putin-canada/

The US millitary complex rubs its hands together every time it can stir up yet another conflict. And the media complex is always in on the charade... yet again working to divide people.

@bmh 100%! The media is a disgusting and divisive force in society. They’ll probably try and politicize Russia’s attacks on Ukraine. Using tragedy to further a political agenda. I despair!

The U.S. just accused Russia of "manufacturing threats that do not exist in order to justify further aggression", which is ironically has been their exact M.O. for many decades now.

I don't follow political news and world events attentively, and am therefore largely ignorant of the background and causes of this conflict, but I still agree wholeheartedly that there is far too much suspicion, fear, and antipathy in the West towards Russia and Russians (and also towards China and the Chinese) that has been brought about by Western governments and mainstream media.

Also, I know that there is much enmity between you and Kuz, but I showed him these most recent posts of yours, and he said that he agrees with you and thinks that you are correct, if that means anything to you.

Thank you for your open-mindedness, as usual, @lolwut. I don't believe for a second that China and Russia are perfect, but they are in no way worse than the United States and western countries in general. People excuse 80 years of the U.S. running rampshod over the globe, creating death and mayhem wherever they go, but jump on China/Russia for every little thing they do, no matter how minor or reasonable.

Also, it may surprise you taht that DOES mean a lot to me. I was actually thinking about Kuz earlier today and thinking about asking to bury the hatchet with him, as I do not want to have a feud with a fellow Russian, especially in these times. I've caused enough bad blood lately as it is.

One of those "yard sale" updates. I created a brand new header for the UFO section due to my growing dissatisfaction with the original one due to the infinity symbol not looking like a real rainbow (which I felt did not look good on the design). The new header is in my opinion far prettier and more stylish. Additionally, I added to new dreams to the Somnium (a new one and a childhood one), and added one new Affiliate

I think at some point, I subconsciously took the philosophy of "well the world could end tomorrow, so it won't matter!" to its logical extreme. Or it's just life-long executive dysfunction and no understanding of what that term even meant until a few years ago...

I am interrupting this prolonged silence by putting up a prolonged shameless infodump on the Halloween horror movie series. Everything you've ever wanted to know, didn't want to know, and didn't know that you wanted to know about Michael Myers. This will live on the Haunted House section, which I have decided to branch out into being a "general horror fiction" section instead of limited to just creepypastas.

Thank you so much for reading, @HoleinMyHeart!! I'm glad you liked it. Halloween is generally considered one of the best horror films of all time so it's definitely worth a watch. Thank you for pointing out the broken link too! I have fixed it.

I added the follow-up article to the first Life Advice to Younger Autistics article to the UFO, offering up some additional important advice, including some more personal things. Many apologies for the delay, as I had previously mentioned this would be up LAST weekend, but completely lost track of time.

I added a new article to the UFO - Life Advice to Younger Autistics, Part 1, the first in a two part series of things that I wish someone had told me at a younger age. The second part will be done hopefully by the end of this weekend. I also added a new category in the Autism section as I have tentative plans to make more autism-related advice articles directed at various situations and groups in the future.

all of your autistic writings are so awesome, i feel you're taking tomes of information and condensing it for the rest of us so we can understand ourselves better. thank you!

Thank you so much, @FragmentandReflect! You give me too much credit. It's just reading of personal anecdotes and formal research, coupled with excessive rumination. I lived for a quarter century without any words for any of the phenomena that ruled my life, and would've still been in the same proverbial cave, if it wasn't for encountering the wisdom of the autistic community, which started this journey.

Another thought-provoking piece Koshka. Ideally there would be no stigma and no sense of "us and them" but rather a mindful and considerate awareness of differences in all.

The upcoming article that I was working on was getting a tad too long even by my standards, and I was worried about people avoiding it like the Personality Disorders due to the sheer length. As such, I wound up cutting out the part about autistic inertia, and turning that into its own article, which is now up on the Autism section. I also added a new Affiliate to the Portal/Dock. Enjoy!

It's very important for me to have the opportunity and freedom to immerse myself in a project - I came away from college feeling frustrated that there were things I wanted to pursue further but the curriculum insisted we move on to the next topic. “We can come back to that later” hardly ever works, especially with something creative; I can schedule it in on paper, I’ll turn up for class, but my brain probably wont!

The part about the mental effort and the handgrip device was surprising but relatable and I like that you use this unseen effort to discount laziness. I too have found that building routines works to get/keep me on track; it is also important to recognise and address unhelpful ones (like sitting at the computer first thing). I try to avoid thinking about if I feel motivated.

@bmh Thank you for catching that error! I relate to your struggles a lot. Western education systems are awful for a lot of people (autistic/introverted especially), and I wish I had the words for all of these things back when I was in college/grade school, instead of spending years struggling despite being told that I was intelligent.

Sitting down at the computer first thing in the morning is definitely a recipe for disaster. It's just unfortunate how much of what we do is now utterly reliant on the computer in this day and age. There are ways to address this (physical books for reading, MP3 players for music, and so on) but they can only do so much...

Did a minor update to the "'Odd' Autistic Behaviours and Why We Do Them" article, explaining why autistic people tend to inexplicably change the subject to ourselves during conversations so often. I am working on a MAJOR autism-related article that I hope to be done with soon, and it occurred to me that with all of the personal anecdotes littering it, I should make a note clarifying this tendency beforehand.

Thank you so much, @vencake! I seriously appreciate that you are open-minded enough to want to hear from actually autistic adults such as myself! There is so much misinformation out there because of how the mainstream narrative around autism is dominated by non-autistic people, so hearing you say that, especially considering your profession, makes my heart sing.
