I reiterate to myself that I am good and that I do share genuine compassion with other people.

They would have you be afraid and fearful because they are afraid and fearful. There's always going to be somebody on top of them, the only person on top of you is you.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

I normally put on a good podcast (If I may suggest, these good old talkboys over at https://soundcloud.com/coolgamesinc ) and plunge into some kind of creative project, whether that's drawing, or learning cad software, or making shitty, shitty, photoshop edits of the people I love and care about.

That can cut both ways, with maejikque being what you make of it. Instead of providing a conditioned response that attempts to subvert it's cause, simply identifying a thought pattern as paranoid can interrupt it's connexion to the subconscious. If you want, interpret the process as "getting to know" your deamons. It works besser than banishment. Too confrontational that is.

The only mahjgickque I need is the realization that, even if They are out to get me, they have had a half a century do try it and have not succeeded.  So either they aren't really out to get me, or they're so incompetent that they may as well not be.

On a social level, I just recognize that a friend is just someone who has not yet had sufficient motivation to fuck you over.  That's not paranoia, because paranoia is a state of delusion, and the fact is that everyone has their price.

That first part is both the reason I can sleep at all and also why I factor "police interfering" into travel of any significant distance. It's pleasant when it's not needed but I'm pretty accustomed to it now.

It's like it must feel to know how much more than cost the compromised are worth.

I am a white male in Arizona, so I don't have to worry about that unless I do something truly grotesque.  Not even kidding.  If I was brown, I would have to budget the same amount as you do plus maybe 10 years in the joint somewhere in the middle.
