With 5G melting our brain, it's hard to imagine someone can still stay oblivious to what's going on around them. But they do. Whether they choose to disconnect themselves or not, there are people who live off the grid and seriously fall behind the world. To us strangers, the most interesting part of their detachment is probably its end. The sudden mind blow that sweeps across their entire perception of reality.

Damn. I wish there was somewhere she and people in a similar situation (like that former prisoner, for example) could ask for help

They had to bring his former commanding officer over to convince him the war was over. He did not believe people when they told him. He thought it was American tricks.

Poor guy :( They should keep prisoners informed at least about basic things in the outside world so they can prepare them. This is so infuriating

Someone posted asking if he was assassinated but got downvoted and removed their comment. Not everyone is familiar with US politics from the 1970’s, so others may have a similar question. Richard Nixon was not assassinated but resigned due to withholding information about individuals who were stealing political information from the other party. He knew he would likely be impeached, so he resigned instead. His name has come up frequently in the last four years as many drew a parallel between him and the 45th US President and the difference in how they handled similar charges. If this is interesting, check out information on Nixon and the Watergate scandal, but hopefully I saved some people from having to do a Google search.

I remember I was at a meeting when 9/11 happened. I'm an English teacher in Europe, and this happened in literally my first month of teaching at a school with primarily Muslim kids. Let's just say that the first two weeks were mostly talking. The kids were incredibly scared that they'd be blamed ...
