Also Watching Witchy Youtubers

People talk about healing a lot, like a LOT a lot and I can’t help but think that capitalism leaves so many people in need of healing, it wounds people daily, causes people immense pain, and as much as I think that ritual and spiritual practice and belief in the beyond can help to cope with that pain (when Marx called religion the opiate of the masses, his primary meaning wasn’t that it was a soporific drug to keep us docile, but that it was a painkiller, because that was what opiates were used for at the time, to dull suffering), the fact that we live in a society where we have to work so hard to try and heal our daily hurts is pretty shite. 

And like as you know, I’m an atheist, I don’t believe in literal deities but like I can’t help but feel that for people who are more of that bent a society that wasn’t so intensely painful to exist within (status inequality stresses humans out and makes us miserable fyi) those people could spend a lot of time doing spiritual development shit beyond just trying to keep themselves together and functioning.
