'Friends' & The Social Stratification of Oligarchical Collectivism

I am going to lose friends.  I've realized this for quite a while now, and I know that this contingency is both an inevitable and unavoidable part of life, even more so for individuals such as myself and other perspicacious free spirits who favor the proclivity of avoiding the spotlight of center stage.

Unlike the prancing peacocks who aggregate on the broadway of a daguerreotype style of swank prodigious catwalk of cyber-narcissism, my own personal predilections remain within the quietness of seclusion and solitude.

Through the decades of sociological advancement, with the devolution of the collective ostensible mindset, the meaning of the word 'Solitude' has seemingly become a widely misconstrued concept; an emblematic misconception implying that 'Solitude' somehow implicates 'Loneliness'; however the true meaning of 'Solitude' is the state of being alone without actually feeling lonely

Questions About Everything In Our “Modern” Culture From An Indian Chief

Luther Standing Bear was an Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Chief who, among a few rare others such as Charles Eastman, Black Elk and Gertrude Bonnin occupied the rift between the way of life of the Indigenous people of the Great Plains before, and during, the arrival and subsequent spread of the European pioneers. Raised in the traditions of his people until the age of eleven, he was then educated at the Carlisle Indian Industrial Boarding School of Pennsylvania, where he learned the English language and way of life. Though a National Historical Landmark, Carlisle remains a place of controversy in Native circles.
