To all appearances, Super #SJW Man had suffered a psychotic break. In reality, his nervous breakdown was the first step in his recovery from youthful idealism.
When he checked into Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, he insisted that his proper name really was “Super #SJW Man,” but by his second day in the psych ward, he had started calling himself “Marshall” again. After all, where had being an ultra-woke superhero gotten him, except into unimaginable embarrassment and trouble?
After he had been hospitalized for two weeks, his family brought him back to Alabama and placed him in a very expensive residential treatment center, where he continued his recovery for the next three months.
His treatment was very effective. A combination of psychiatric drugs and intensive therapy helped him to realize how foolish he had been.
His visits with his family became friendlier and friendlier, and before long, he was avidly reading Bloomberg Markets and The Wall Street Journal and beginning to take an interest in his family’s investments.
Finally, the day came for him to go home. His father came alone to pick him up, driving his shiny, new Audi R8 Spyder, sporting an “I’m Still with Her” bumper sticker to let everyone know his disdain for Trump and, more importantly, his contempt for the proles of his state who had voted for Trump in the last election.
