Supporting individuals

This past Saturday evening into night I walked five miles over three hours in Manchester, New Hampshire, with two individuals. Several items of interest, incidental to our enjoyable experiences:

  • My first impression was that it could have been this time last year. People who had spent a long winter and spring indoors were happy to be outdoors.
  • There were small differences from 2019 in that outdoor and indoor tables were widely spaced, and a few customers wore masks. We ate a meal indoors that included good paella, ceviche, and calamari.
  • I didn’t see instances of violence or property crimes.
  • I observed social deviancy in ~1% of the people. A crazy person talked to herself while walking down the sidewalk carrying a plastic garbage bag full of who-knows-what – worldly belongings? One homeless person slept off a binge, another engaged in a binge with a bottle in front of him, while a third walked glassy-eyed, accompanied by counsel.

I didn’t see any people my chronological age outdoors. Okay, it was Saturday night.


I encourage every individual to take responsibility for every aspect of each of our own one precious life.

I strongly object to destroying society among individuals, especially young people’s social and economic lives. Current cover stories promise to destroy a person’s social presence, reputation, residence, economic development – whatever it takes – to conform them to the desired “norm.”

Should we destroy society to ostensibly (“outwardly appearing as such; professed; pretended“) protect people who don’t take responsibility for themselves?

  • For our own non-communicable diseases like Type 2 diabetes, obesity, etc., that make us susceptible to other diseases?
  • For our own neglected health issues that we look to others to resolve instead of looking to ourselves?

Will Part II be governments granting themselves even more powers with a cover story that they will restore the order they destroyed?


The individuals I walked with support open-carry firearms. Instances of property crimes and violence I saw: 0 among ~400 people outdoors. I saw three that supported open carry:

  1. A pub owner or manager;
  2. A person on Manchester’s main street; and
  3. A person shouting from their car.

Instances of property crimes and violence in US cities on Saturday night who prohibit open-carry? Look up:

  • Seattle (at least 59 people injured by mob violence);
  • Portland (another day after day, week after week, month after month of unarrested mob property crimes and violence);
  • Chicago (another day that added to the 2,200+ people shot by gangs during 2020).

What went on in your city this past Saturday night?
