“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Stop with the TFW already

That feeling when you realize that the trope everyone now uses transmutes uniqueness into typicality, thus precisely embodying the current state of being what remains of a person despite your ostensible left wing beliefs.

Personalized alienation.

I think you may mean "normalization" for typicality?

The greater tructh is the one you write in the interstitial spaces of how discourse ought be rational yet none of us are capable of rationality
