It’s kind of like character Svetlana Kirilenko from The Sopranos show. She says to Tony that Americans are all the time thinking they have to be happy, and when they are not they have to take drugs or fix it, or fir more real and prevalent case PRETEND that nothing is wrong, then you don’t have to do something. In Australia is tall poppy syndrome, while America is keep up with Jones. So hard to do. Why make harder by admitting it’s of course better if penis not cut when it makes you seem unhappy to others? Problem is it makes it harder for next generation — you have to keep saying it’s okay and no regrets. In all other countries it’s just GA-MAN 我慢 or just carry on no matter what. Pretend to be happy just hurts everybody, maybe mostly innocent children. Make others feel like they have to seem happy, even with fake sympathy, hurts everybody, including innocent children. Maybe we need to stop this bad, uniquely American habit so people can start to admit this. It’s so obvious, because even somebody blind since forever wonders what this sight thing might be, and boy sees scar around penis and wonders what was there before, and if there is problem, like with finishing, if that’s the cause of it, or if it’s just normal. And always dreaming of making love without condom, when this is not the dreamed-of objective in other countries—because they still have the fine-nerve feeling. You have to be able to just be sad about that. Life is not perfect, you don’t get to do everything, and some things just can’t be fixed.
Here's the Edward Bernays reference in my comic.
I found a good video on the shadow.
