  •  That's beyond schadenfreude. It's sadism. (3+ / 0-)

    Your mother didn't merely enjoy your misfortune, she created it. Sounds like an incurable personality disorder to me.

    •  Yeah. I was too young to figure it out then (2+ / 0-)

      ...but I knew something was deeply screwed up with what happened. Kids know.

      I know now that "evil" has a need for hurting others for no reason other than hurting others. It feeds on it.  It is a choice. It is willful.

      Today, what is happening in the Congress is the same kind. They know they are hurting people and they do it anyway not because they think it makes sense but because they can and it is gratifying to them.

      Racism? Same. Desire for more wars? Same.  Koch brothers? Same? Scalia? Same. Cheney? Same.

      Insanity? Yes. But willful. There is no remedy for fixing it unless a miracle comes from within. It is what it is. It is motivated by its desire to hurt others. That's where its nourishment comes from.

      To me, human kind has one true enemy. And it is that, the one I faced as a kid.

      It can show up anywhere, even in the guise of a mother.

      Thank you all for reading. And don't worry for me. As the song goes, " what doesn't kill you make you stronger." I now want to put my experience in good use. By raising awareness of the damned thing.
