The Importance of Family

Coming from a good family is an extremely important part of life, maybe the most important. It is literally everything you started as, in a world that was already divvied up long ago. It is so important, that the elite have always ignored people from the wrong place, and they are usually right to do so, like we ignore animals. Maybe that's why it took so long for me to admit that coming from good stock just wasn't in the cards for me, and the limitations of that.

Some would protest my characterization. They'd say I am so lucky, that I should be grateful for all I have. They are wrong. They are only seeing me now, what I've recently become. They can't make an informed estimate of the odds I've overcome, nor would they ever voluntarily imagine what they've spent a lifetime trying to avoid. That's fine, I need no pity, but if the truth is to be understand about me, I must be honest about my past.

My Family History & Childhood

In the early 1900s, the recently unified Kingdom of Italy was a nation where Catholicism was not just the only religion, but the centre of culture, knowledge and power.

The Time My Mother Tried to Gaslight Me

Contrary to how it might seem, I really loathe having to discuss private matters publicly, but my hand is being forced once again.

Do Not Trust My Brother or Mother

Nothing my brother or mother say about me, or likely have said in the past, should be trusted. Not to say it isn't true, but will be twisted or subtly misleading. These are very manipulative people and I refuse to speak with either of them, as should you. My father seems to be more honest but his bonds to them and naiveté can obscure his judgement, especially when it involves people not as straightforward as he is.
