Awesome article. I particularly like the last one :) So true.
"Hey Inno, how are you doing?"
Could be better but I'm much better than I have been in several years. I've found love, or rather it found me. But I'm still poor, my country is still a viper den, though not as bad as yours apparently.
I have ants in my ceiling and I'm on a new medication. Insurance wouldn't cover one option so I'm trying one it will cover.
Gotta love it when the profit motive and drug prohibition come before the execution of good medical practice.
WTF is wrong with people, you know?
SSDD in a way hehe.
"I've been suffering from a form of depression which is why I've been less and less active..."
I had a bit of an existential crisis that gutted my motivation to write. I back off debates all the time, refuse to comment, mute threads, and rarely post or write essays anymore.
I think I need to write an essay about why. It's that facts don't matter. I've written little things about it here and there but not a full piece. It feels like it's the last thing I could talk about.
But I still record my thoughts privately, using "tiddlywiki" which is a cool project.
I'm sorry you're feeling lousy man. Did you ever read any of David Pearce's stuff?

Also these two made me think of you. I find that focusing on bigger problems like an intellectual puzzle helps me forget my personal problems for awhile. But I kinda ran out of problems lol
"Maybe you would take a look at it and, if you understand it, explain it to me?"
No problem. What that's doing is overwriting the profile information on your blogs with the profile information you put in Google plus so that they are the same across both mediums.
Whether or not you want to do it depends on which one is more current and complete, or if you wish to maintain two separate identities (for lack of a better word.)
If your Google plus profile information is more up to date and fitting than your blogger profile data is then I say go ahead do the overwrite. (Or connection as they call it.)
An advantage of doing so is the linking of your two audiences potentially. Your blog people will find your gplus easier and your gplus people might see your blog easier, but mostly it'll be the former, which is probably good for you since you have such a large blog following relative to your gplus presence.
Also you won't have to update your blogger profile anymore I suspect, you'll just have to keep your Google plus up to date, and changes made to that profile will mirror to your blogger profile. Since they'll essentially become the same document.
I think you should take a good long look at both profiles and decide if you want to overwrite the blogger one with the gplus one. If not then maybe it's time you update your gplus one till it matches your blogger one and Then connect them.
I can't see much utility in leaving them separate.
"The website is all I've got, it's the one good thing I have a little power to do, so I really, really want to do it well."
I understand completely. I feel the same about underlore. Just yesterday I was working on it. Sorting and presenting old content rather than making new content.
If you need anything professionally done to your blog I can recommend this guy who in turn was recommended very highly by someone I trust completely with all things web related and beyond.
Sobeyond actually giving you information, like I'll do for free any time, he'll actually go professionally execute changes for you. For a small fee. I plan to use him to monetize my blog very soon. That's why I was working on it.
"since psychopathy is one of the last things in the world that there's virtually no knowledge about"
Very true. And I'm happy for you that you get any sort of reaction from your audience. I'm not even sure I have one anymore, not that it matters much to me at this point. :)
"so I apologize"
No need to apologize. I'm sure you've done everything that can be done on your end to remedy the situation. You're a resourceful intelligent human. If you say your life is on the line, I believe you and wish you luck.
I think you need to join some Google plus communities. You need to network more. Maybe even find some allies closer to home with sufficient resources to help in a more substantive way.
Or why not make a Google plus community about anything that interests you. Your psychopathy need not be the center of your identity. At the very least it seems like you have great reason to get involved with reform communities in your country.
You obviously have valid and pressing policy complaints. Humans work best in groups man, that's just the nature of culture. Use it :)
Good luck in all things.
