"Posiada jedną bardzo dodatnią cechę - mianowicie podczas wieczorów, które spędzamy razem, umie bardzo ładnie milczeć, podczas gdy ja coś czytam lub piszę. Zadaje mi czasem dziwne pytania, np: co ja myślę, gdy ją całuję. Czasami bez widocznej przyczyny prawdziwe łzy stają jej w oczach i nie chce powiedzieć dlaczego? Kiedyś w nocy rozpłakała się w łóżku, i gdy ją zapytałem dlaczego, odpowiedziała: 'Ja tak walczę z życiem...'"

why none of them got into The Good Place

What I love about this is its acknowledgment that Jason had no intentions at all

this is all 100% true but it always made me really mad that Chidi’s “crime” was having a severe anxiety disorder like he needed understanding and therapy, sending him to the Bad Place for something he had literally no control over was incredibly fucked up

I feel like a less-surface theme of the show is that they’re all in a situation where they have been forced into bad patterns by forces outside their control - Chidi has SEVERE anxiety; Eleanor was forced by abuse and neglect to adopt a self-centered attitude from early childhood and, like many people with traumatic pasts, responds by not dealing with difficult emotions; Jason was very overtly raised in an environment where he got no education and all his models for behaviour were criminal and/or self-destructive; and Tahani has been raised in an environment where everything is performative and she is shot down for any genuine expression of unhappiness or non-material want. Just as Michael and Janet are made one way but changed by their experiences, the moral of the story is that things outside your control shape you but you can move away from them. That could easily be really insulting, in a sort of ‘just get over it’ way, but the idea isn’t that they change solely because they decide to be better - all six of them change because their circumstances change and give them the OPPORTUNITY to be better, because they’re finally given the support system they lack.

I like The Good Place because the whole show has since day 1 been predicated on the idea that black and white moral judgements made in a vacuum are bullshit, and that moral choices are informed by things outside our control, whether that be education, behaviour modelling, unfair treatment or mental health issues. That doesn’t mean we aren’t responsible for our actions but it DOES mean we have to understand morality in the context of people’s varied experiences AND asks for the possibility that if their environment is improved, their ability to function as moral agents also improves.

Context: In 1977, Exxon researchers gave executives a definitive report that burning fossil fuels was causing climate change. Exxon went on to spend at least $30 million funding public skepticism about climate change and lobbying against federal action. 

More than half of the world’s industrial carbon emissions have been produced since 1977. ExxonMobil’s 2018 earnings were $20.8 billion.

I am constantly trying to communicate something incommunicable, to explain something inexplicable, to tell about something I only feel in my bones and which can only be experienced in those bones. Basically it is nothing other than this fear we have so often talked about, but fear spread to everything, fear of the greatest as of the smallest, fear, paralyzing fear of pronouncing a word, although this fear may not only be fear but also a longing for something greater than all that is fearful.

Wreszcie zrozumiałem, co to znaczy ból. Ból to wcale nie znaczy dostać lanie, aż się mdleje. Ani nie znaczy rozciąć sobie stopę odłamkiem szkła tak, że lekarz musi ją zszywać. Ból zaczyna się dopiero wtedy, kiedy boli nas calutkie serce i zdaje się nam, że zaraz przez to umrzemy, i na dodatek nie możemy nikomu zdradzić naszego sekretu. Ból sprawia, że nie chce nam się ruszać ani ręką, ani nogą ani nawet przekręcić głowy na poduszce.

Niech pan mi powie, jeśli pan wie. I dlaczego, skoro kochałem ją jak nikogo na świecie, nie umieliśmy z sobą być? Kochałem, to zresztą jakby nic nie powiedzieć. Nieraz czułem, jakby to ona dopiero dała mi moje życie. Jakby to nie ona z mojego żebra, lecz ja z jej żebra, odwrotnie niż w Piśmie.

Virginia Woolf, The Years

March 31 2020



“Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or don’t find meaning but ‘steal’ some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be.”

Albert Camus, Notebooks 1951-1959 (via mesogeios)
