the butterfly effect is well balanced as it does not just examin one side of the contraversy. although it may not be completely devoid of bias , I find that bias to be minimal. it makes me question our society in many lights. i am under the impression that all these corporations and factions are us. if we don't like aspects of the world maybe we could change them. the bigger subject should not be the porn industry but all industries. money and sociatal shame or judgement, and lonelyness are the things that should be examined. the fact that the porn industry exist is a result of many factions of people trying to get rich. we are those people. and the sham and punishment brought on by the butterfly effect is discustingly similler to that brought on by the Salem whitch trials. as a society we should make changes that involve bringing people together for the sake of having fun. I think the reason the porn industry is in such bloom is because people are isolated. all our energy is expended during working hours. wile all of us suffer from some anxiety brought about by the shame we have brought upon ourselves. in finalation I may be wrong about some points however these issues can be better discussed by a village of people perhaps eating dinner because of the light that this story has brought to our streamed collective mindset.

Hardcore Self Help: F**k Depression is the follow-up to the best-selling F**K Anxiety. In this book I take the information, tips, and insights that I have gained as a psychologist and translate them into language that doesn't suck. This is the self-help book for people who don't usually like self-help books. In Hardcore Self Help: F**K Depression, I talk to you like a friend. That means I speak directly to you, without psychobabble. Instead I tell you why your brain is such a troll.

this book is not an adults book as much as it is a teens book.
