I keep thinking about this Adoption Horrow Show [ link ] and how it sets back humanity on all levels a couple of thousand years. And I keep re-reading what I initially wrote when I saw this:
Adoptees have no will. Adoptees do what they need to do to survive, even if at the expense of their corporal and cerebral integrity. Adoptees are seen as “dolls”; as “playthings”; as props; as ceremonial fetishes. Adoptees are the super-mediated offering of a narcissistic society completely out of control.
And I’d like to ask: Can you recall as an adoptee doing something that was a matter of your physical or mental survival along these lines? Meaning, did you ever give in (past mere childhood) to the whims of your adoptive parents along these lines purely as a function of a desire to survive? If this is how much adoption has devolved since we were children, what horrors must await future adoptees? How much more can adoption devolve?
