Neurotic reactions to life emerge when people try to adhere to abstract social roles, and forget their stream of consciousness existence.
Alternative facts are Nietzschean
Tom X Hart

I’ve found this to be true — when I feel the most anxiety is when I try to conform my stream of consciousness into someone else’s idea of what is “right”. I think the quote you picked from Nietzsche a few paragraphs down is perfect for explaining the current hubbub surrounding political correctness in that we each experience our “streams” differently, so what’s true for one will not be true for all therefor obscuring “truth” and “correctness” as both are based on individual perceptions.

Over all, an excellent read and much to ponder!
