Wenn man ihnen sagt: „Wir brauchen Euch nicht“, antworten sie: „Das wissen wir längst.“ „Wir sind das Pack“ haben sie gerufen, als Angela Merkel jetzt endlich das Flüchtlingsheim im berüchtigten Heidenau besucht hat. Ihr erstes.
Der Soziologe Wilhelm Heitmeyer hat schon vor Jahren prophezeit: „Unsere Analysen lassen erwarten, dass eine Zunahme menschenfeindlicher Einstellungen und Verhaltensweisen davon abhängt, inwieweit immer mehr Menschen in unsichere Arbeits- und Lebensverhältnisse, politische Ohnmachtsempfindungen und instabile emotionale Situationen, kurz: in prekäre Anerkennungsverhältnisse geraten.“ So ist es eingetreten. Je weniger Anerkennung ein Mensch selbst erfährt, desto weniger kann er für andere Menschen aufbringen.

How neurotypicals seem to thing mental illness works
  • Mentally ill person:Hmm, I think I have a mental illness.
  • Mentally ill person:*Magically gets diagnosed instantly with no trouble, for free, with no bigotry or misinformation from the doctor at all*
  • Mentally ill person:I am so ashamed of this mental illness that I now have, and that I totally didn't have before I was diagnosed by a doctor, that I am incapable of talking about it anywhere, in fact, I am now completely incapable of using a computer at all and sit alone and cry all day, every day in a psychiatric hospital that I will live at for the rest of my life, which is somehow also free, and never interact with neurotypicals again, because I am ashamed and mentally ill.
  • Mentally ill person:And also I'm faking it all for the magical benefits that you get from being mentally ill. What are these benefits? No one knows.

Begrudging poor people their cigarettes is a dick move because it acts as an antidepressant.

Highly subjective, DO correct.

You know how a lot of people are angry at poor people who nevertheless buy and smoke cigarettes?
And tobacco is hella expensive, depending on the country.
But did you know that tobacco smoke contains a MAO blocker? This is something that is also used as an antidepressive medication. To put it short, MAO is a protein that breaks down neurotransmitters. And a lack of some of those, dopamine and serotonin, is a cause of depression. (And the other way around. There are feedback loops; depressions are systematic problems.)

Poor people often cannot afford good, if any, doctors and medicine. They are told it’s their own fault, they live in conditions that trigger depressive states. The insecurity and anxiousness are the emotional outcome of completely rational subconscious calculations of how much energy one has to input for which outcome. It’s a signal that is supposed to get you out of futile situations but our social systems often do not allow that. (There may or may not be governmental and effective aid…)
I won’t go into detail here, but the levels of important neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine get decreased if a badly stressful situations does not change. Genetic predisposition for inability to escape clinical depression also exists.

But you know what is expensive, but still affordable in little doses from time to time? Cigarettes and tobacco.
Unfortunately, their effect is almost exclusively studied in the light of addiction.
The effects are treated as an extra on top of a normal level, because the model human for studies is not a poor, overworked, underprivileged and harassed depressed person or someone from the vulnerable groups, but along the lines of average, neurotypical and not working poor, but with spare time for studies. (I daresay very often white and male, too.)

It might sound trivial, but cigarette addiction might just be self-medication for clinical depression and a lot of addicted people would need treatment for those first.

Who smokes? Who does not? Maybe someone can help me answer this, because I have a feeling that vulnerable groups should smoke more.
Where I come from, young people and poor people are often smokers and it fits the self-medication theory. But where I come from there is not much data among other lines except age, binary gender and income.

I do not endorse smoking tobacco. It’s unhealthy for a ton of well-known reasons from cancer to cardiovascular problems.
I loathe smoking around kids and habituating them to the smoke.
But to look down on people for smoking, to tell poor people that they are throwing money out of the window for nothing is wrong on a factual level. Support poor and vulnerable people, support them getting out of situations that trigger and worsen clinical depression. But don’t give them shit for using available options to try and function.

The player is challenged to confront a long and complicated series of bureaucratic hurdles resulting from a recent change of address. Mail isn't being delivered, bank accounts are inaccessible, and nothing is as it should be. The game includes a measure of simulated blood pressure which rises when "frustrating" events happen and lowers after a period of no annoying events. Once a certain blood pressure level is reached, the player suffers an aneurysm and the game ends.
While undertaking the seemingly simple task of retrieving misdirected mail, the player encounters a number of bizarre characters, including an antisocial hacker, a paranoid weapons enthusiast, and a tribe of Zalagasan cannibals. At the same time, they must deal with impersonal corporations, counterintuitive airport logic, and a hungry llama.
