    To gain a profound understanding of steroids, I embarked on a journey into the depths of scientific research. I meticulously combed through research papers, scrutinized peer-reviewed journals, and meticulously analyzed data and methodologies. This rigorous approach allowed me to separate facts from the myths that often shroud the world of steroid use.

    Segments from the book “Reflection”, by Guzziferno;

    Human psychology is very pliable, it can be molded easily despite our false belief in our total self-control. Financial powers among us can and have installed and set the capitalist mental programing we experience. We strive for the realistically unattainable (and untenable) like those who fuel the lottery and never ever hold a winning ticket, we work to enlarge the capitalistic state and never reach any significant matching reward to match our endless effort.

    “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”- John Steinbeck. “Like the world of the borderline ours in many ways is a world of massive contradictions. We presume to believe in peace, yet our streets, movies, television, and sports are filled with aggression and violence. We are a nation virtually founded on the principle of “help thy neighbor” yet we have become one of the most politically conservative, self-absorbed and materialistic societies in the history of humankind. Assertiveness and action are encouraged; reflection and introspection are equated with weakness and incompetency” – Dr. Kreisman & Straus on BPD.

    " Meanwhile, this luxury we are experiencing is nothing more than the temporary self-indulgence of rats in the granary, Plenty; but only temporarily as consumption of natural resources peaks. We have been given many toys to add color, imagery, and illusion to our lives, but never the guaranteed securities of the basic human necessities and their continued future supply. Daily minimal survival, materialism or the possibility of more material in order to keep our loyalty to the factory has become the key driver. Unlike other nations, there is this new belief in our absolute need for these new found comforts. Within the period of two generations we have been spoiled irreversibly and are now about to burn our resources and saturate our environment with our product in one final orgy of consumption. In our new society and evolving culture, wealth now works only to produce more wealth and it is primarily concerned with its own enrichment over the overall health of the community of which it is a part, and of the individuals which make it up."

    Other chapters discuss the dissection and alienation of traditional family communities as in European towns, which in modern America not only cease to exist but now estrange us from even immediate family members leaving us completely isolated, and how the national level of measurable psychosis in America has increased regardless ones background.
