So today I went to the post office and there was some colorful book on display there. Yeah, they also sell books there. I don't remember the title but it was something to do with all this positive thinking crap. I opened it on a random page and read something like this:


"We are all a family. We are all brothers and sisters."


"Everyone is your friend. "


"The whole universe loves you."


"You are a director of your own life."


"You're special. You can do everything you want. Believe in yourself." 


"Be brave. Follow your dreams." 


My immediate thought was "What a load of bullshit" but I wonder whether fooling/mindfucking oneself can actually be useful. Like if you keep repeating to yourself the same bullshit over and over again and act as if it were true, could it by any chance influence the reality? Can reassuring crap  boost your self-esteem? Can smiling like an idiot and pretending to be cheerful bring happiness? Thoughts?

It works for about 93% of people according to Google reviews...




Years later it was rebranded as The Secret, but that ended at a garbage bag sweatlodge. 


All roads converge on that Gnostic magical highway where you can control 'fate/destiny'.

It all boils down to money, I think. When I was young, I read "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living." It indeed lifted up my spirits but only for a short time. Soon I came back to my default neurotic mood. It's similar to "measuring your life with coffee spoons." You start your morning with a cup of coffee. It makes you more energetic for a while but later in the afternoon you think "What a sleepy day" and have another cup of coffee. And you repeat the ritual every day until you run out of coffee. Then you rush to the shop to buy coffee. The same here. You read the feel good crap, it makes you feel good for a while and then you feel the need to buy another one and another one. Soon reading such books becomes a habit and the one difficult to quit. Business is business. It needs regular customers to flourish.

I often wonder if shit would've been different is I was more open to positive outlooks and using motivational buzzwords like "actualize".  


I can't break materialism unless it's in the form of a deus ex machina come to write me out of some poor-decision-made dead-end. I think my real life made the butchered nom de plume carry some irony in the end. 


Too bad it's a literary device of fictional narratives.

Positive thinking. I am not sure it's completely wrong, though how can you think positive when everything is going wrong? And how can you think negative after all? All you can do is think positive, then some "experts" will sell to you what you already do as their own. They will sell you what is yours and you will buy it and thank them. You will pay them for what is yours and then thank them.

It depends. If you are in your own country, rebel against the ones who exploit you.

Once i rebel against them, they will put me in prison and rape me with a green bottle of average size or if I'm lucky they will beat my bones or break them.

@Ba, So Morocco is such a shithole? I suggest moving to the EU and claiming a refugee status, either in France or Germany. You will get welfare and you won't have to work till the end of your life. The more kids you have, the more money you will get. So fuck and procreate. Have no scruples, man. France exploited its colonies without scruples so now claim your own. And Germany, those fuckers haven't yet payed for all the WW2 damage. Just don't come to Poland. It's shit of a country, I tell you. Foreigners are hanged on trees here and 90% of the society slave for the minimum wage. Can't even afford toilet paper for that. I also heard that German women are really fond of Muslim guys.

My mother was from Poland. My father was in the Navy and took her to the US somewhere around the mid 60s.


She liked it here and was doing well but ended up dying of cancer mid to late 30s.

@Anna I'm afraid that Morocco suspended it's relationship with Germany (the EU country i was managing to immigrate to) due to the Western Sahara affairs and Polizario, and now Germany responded by restricting Moroccan people from having its Visa Shengen. How unlucky am i?!

Well... this just plainly sucks. But hey, you could move to the US! Just take a banner or a T-shirt with "Please Biden, let me in" written on it. At least, this is what Fox News would suggest doing:


Please Biden Let Us In

I can just take a look at Nacer Zafzafi in Rif region Northern Morocco who was sentenced by the judges on the trial in Casablanca with 20 years in prison and his dudes too (each one 20 years including a 6 years old kid) for just asking the government to build in their region a factory (creating job opportunities), hospital, public schools and a university nothing more nothing less.

I was joking, you know. If you are telling the truth, then I feel sorry for you. I only know Morocco from the bits and pieces I read on the internet. And although the country has made some progress, the overall picture is rather gloomy. I guess covid made the situation worse.

This is experience, it gives people the test first then the lesson afterward, in the end it does not even matter how to try in order to survive hunger, thirst and homelessness (in order to remain survival).

Luckily I'm politically, religiously and mentally disabled person (mad/crazy) that's why I don't make jokes about such things. I even got the badge of the most stupid student in university because I repeated the first year (second semester) for like 4 times (in 4 years) and the scolarité is about to kick me out of college this year if i failed :).

Okay, this is ridiculous.  While I  am the last person that should pass judgement on another's inability to help themselves (or take my own advise), logic says if you can pander to a forum you can use a Google search. 


Question: "Places Morrocan can travel without a Visa?"


Top Resulthttps://visalist.io/morocco/visa-free


Here are just some of the places outside Muslim influence. 


All places are "Developing" or "Developed" by international standards.


(Most common language)


* = No limit to stay


Seychelles - Highest per capita GDP in "Africa". 


Gabon -  2nd Highest per capita GDP in continental Africa. 


* Svalbard -  You could freeze your ass off in the arctic circle. There's a seed bank, and one the northernmost permernantly inhabited cities of 5,000 or more people. (English) 


Barbados - Like catastrophic weather? Then this is spot for you. A higher standard of tropical living that can get levelled by storm surge. (English)


Dominican Republic - Like baseball, heard of baseball? It can be very very good for you in The Carribean minor leagues of The Dominican Republic. (Spanish)


Brazil - If you were strait I could say "Rio De Janeiro Beach and Surfing" and sell it. Otherwise massively corrupt and catholic. Doable if you don't get shot. (Portoguese) 


South Korea - Yes, South Korea. Home of Samsung and Hyundai. As many screwed up and hilarious cultural things as Japan only you can eat dogs at restaurants there too! (Korean)


* Hong Kong - Tall buildings. Like if an entire 'country' was an Asian Manhattan. Better when it was still UK territory. You could open a business with a single form. (Cantonese)


* Macau - If there was ever a much wealthier Chinese Las Vegas. Much like Hong Kong in being as expensive as New York or Singapore. (Cantonese)


Philippines - Ever wonder what happens when you cross Polynesia, Hawaii, Japan, Korea, China, and Mexico?  Philippines is what happens. Travel here to see it for yourself. (Filipino)


I hope this helps you out of your oppressive situation. Go somewhere on "vacation" and see how long you can stay.
