our society does not give a damn about us.
The feeling is mutual. I don't give a damn about society. I don't recycle. I am retired now but my flying was often a bit shady, to say the least especially waaaay back when. I don't vote nor will I ever. I don't steal, rob, rape, or kill nor will I ever (unless in defense of self or others important to ME, death in the past was a duty I accepted for my own reasons.)
I don't have a passport nor will I ever. If I wish to leave the country, I will hop on my trusty sailboat and do so. When I come to another country, if they accept my visit, then I visit. Otherwise, I leave. I admit, I probably will never leave: I'm too happy here.
Finally, there is my usual disclaimer which is very much apropos here. If I thought a little girl would never be harmed by an experience with me, then I would bring Her, often, to the heights of Pleasure Mountain whenever She would permit it. Alas, in this [edited] society, the risk is way too high that SHE will be harmed after the fact by that [edited] society. Thus I write:
Regarding this post and every post I write about myself describing my past, be advised that I was tried, convicted, sentenced to a very long time in prison, and I served the complete sentence. Be further advised that I am no longer practicing illegal activities today and that I refrain from doing so by my own choice, not from fear of legal entanglements or society's outrage. I remain crime free because I choose to.
