Where I dump some of my mental burden

The hardest times for humankind, ever.

No doubt, we’re witnessing — nay, we’re partaking in the hardest times for humankind, ever. For, as far as we know -and I think there’ll never be found any evidence hinting otherwise-, since the dawn of our species, all along human history, every civilization or culture, every tribe or people, every society or race, big … Continue reading »
