1.  Turn off the teevee.
2.  Log off of the internets.
3.  Open the front door and holler "SHUT UP".
4.  Read a book.

#1 is not an issue
#2 ... maybe
#3 also maybe
#4 yes i have done so. but again. hard to read a book when every 5 minutes someone is like HEY YOU STOP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEE

Kill them.  It's Phoenix, who is gonna care?

I'm quite partial to some of them. I think I'll go for walks and see if that helps.

So, in recent months, I find it increasingly hard to concentrate. I am surrounded by noise, there's always a stray itch, no one can leave me to my thoughts for more than two minutes without demanding my attention or unloading some god awful deluge of dithering, idiotic words about one or another useless thing on me. I can't set aside any inviolable time or space for creativity. I must find quiet moments late at night or early in the morning to pursue any train of thought, while everyone else is asleep and I am too tired to think properly.

This is making me an unpleasant person to be around. I can't stand the company of any person at all, I am constantly tuning everyone out because my mind is gasping desperately for solitude, so I don't hear most of the things that are said to me until they've been repeated once or twice. I am perpetually distracted at home and at work. I am developing acute misophonia, physically cringing when I hear someone eating, or drinking, or breathing, or generally just existing anywhere within earshot. The sharp inhale someone does right before they speak causes me to brace for impact, because I really, really just want everyone to shut up for five goddamn minutes. This is made worse by the constant drone of music in the background, always with lyrics, which for some reason (this is new) completely interrupt my ability to think at all. And that's sad, because I like music. But I even want the music to shut up.

I have no patience with anyone, and I know that I come across as being seriously annoyed at the mere presence of anyone, including my own family -- because I am annoyed. This is unfair to them, and I don't want to behave this way. But I am perennially exhausted by the constant demands for my attention (I mean this literally, not hyperbolically -- there is actually no time where I can expect to be interruption-free longer than about fifteen or twenty minutes at the most, and even that is rare). I am more and more disinterested in every kind of human contact, and it's really beginning to show in ways that are unpleasant to me and unfair to the people I love. It's probably worse in my head than it seems outside, but it's clearly not getting any better.

ANYWAY

What do you do to shut the world out, and what are some healthy ways to tell people to give me some solitude once in a while without coming off like a complete prick?

Just to me it seems dumb to blindly hate people. I've stumbled my way through many social groups and even if they are a neo nazi or an ancap getting applebees and talking about shared interest is always a positive experiance.

I can't condone being a Nazi, but I can support being a person. Which means no matter how fucked up you are theres events in your life that lead you to being who you are. Im not going to invalidate someomes truama or joy because of what they call themselfs and I'm not going to only see them for what they call themself. I'm going to see the complexity in every human, look at the out come, look at the label, and go "well fuck, thats complicated and I'm a simple person, played any good games recently?"

The only people I can't enjoy time spent with are the people who are completely consumed by one thing. And yes, I have gotten in drunk fights with Nazis over polotics, but in the morning  we both apologize and realize not everything is about polotics.

I have no words to express how utterly morally bankrupt this philosophy is.

Main sentiment in the neo nazis i hang with occasionally is that trumps a jewish puppet and an idiot. Granted those are more the biker drug dealer neo nazis. Not those weirdo suit wearig ones.

I assume you put the word "with" in there by accident.

For sure, Trump is more a useful idiot than their chosen champion (that's what Bannon is for). The Neo Nazis would turn on Trump quickly if he's perceived to deviate very far from policies they support. They aren't idiots, so they tolerate his periodic and decidedly limp rejections of outright Fascism and Nazism, since those are necessary for him to maintain his (fragile) legitimacy. Bannon understands this so he engineers the weakest possible ostensibly anti-Nazi statements from the Trump regime while taking care to ensure that the actual policies Trump endorses and decrees will still have a strong pro-Fascist effect. The contradiction is only enough to fool the roughly 50% of Americans circling the drain at the center of the political spectrum like idiots, either unable to see the looming disaster, or unwilling to face it. Luckily for the Neo-Nazis, that's all the contradiction has to do. As soon as it's too late to stop them, the Fascists will abandon Trump without a second thought.

It's like watching someone try to guess my password based on what he sees lying around in my office.

I only made a list of 5 because that's what I came up with at the moment. If you want to add to I. That's fine with me. The only guideline I'd prefer is making sure whatever you add to the list is actually a real thing you're making fun of, not entirely fictional. But rules are made to be broken, anyway.

Trump could try to default on debt, but I'm not sure he actually has the unilateral power to do that. It's a flagrant violation of a specific and explicit provision of the Constitution for starters, and also Congress is the branch that writes the budget, not the President. Even if Trump did try to do something like that by ordering the Treasury Secretary to do something monumentally stupid, I can't imagine Congress (even if it is absolutely worthless in every other respect) standing by and allowing it. If anything can move them toward impeachment, the willful destruction of the entire economy would have to be it. But then again, it's Congress, so who knows.
