Obesity, drug use, teen pregnancy and every other cause du jour are symptoms of our cultural disease not our moral decay. When competition without
morality, built in income inequality, and endless mindless consumption are the primary drivers of a culture how can we expect things to be magically
awesome. The brainwashing goes so deep that no one questions the real cause.
I'm a smoker and slightly overweight (by reasonable standards not that bad, by american standards I might as well be 1000 lbs). I played sports all
during childhood but got turned off completely in middle school when it stopped being about fun and started being about winning. I hated smoking and
thought it the dumbest thing until the time right before college when I just gave in to the dominant culture and started partying and socializing to
try to fit in with family and friends. It took me over ten years of #ing up left and right (by my standards, by American standards I was pretty tame,
I'd never get viewers for my reality show :p ) before I found myself again.
Our entire culture is about suppressing anyone who questions it. If you suck at school that's fine, it's designed to be passed by anyone who can
show obedience and a minimum of work. If you suck at sports, it's because your lazy and not trying hard enough. If you suck at being moral, no
worries it's not necessary. If you suck at being greedy and materialistic then you must have some serious mental issues. If you're not classically
attractive you should just give into being alone. If you are attractive don't worry about your personality, you'll always have a place as long as
It's literally impossible to be happy if you follow American culture without building up a huge array of neuroses and mental illnesses. That's why
even our most successful celebrities and businessman so often have as many issues as people with no success. When success is defined by constantly
climbing up the ladder you'll never be happy because best case scenario at some point you reach the top and become bored and lose all sense of
purpose and become unhappy. That's why so many men become depressed after retirement. Their entire purpose has been aquisition and competition and
they have forgotten how to just relax and enjoy life. Sadly with feminism women are slowly catching up on that gender gap. If nothing changes
America is doomed because nearly everyone is mentally ill. Even the so called normal people. I personally call buying tons of useless # while people
starve and suffer mentally ill but I don't think many share my sentiment.
It's not being on the internet that causes all the hate online. It's our culture. The internet is just anonymous enough that most people will let
their true selves out. It's no wonder we are the paragons of every deadly sin out there. Our culture is based entirely on the principles of
Machiavelli. Winning takes precedent over caring. I learned this when my empathetic sister would come home crying nit for herself but for how poorly
someone at school treated a legit retarded kid or some nerd or fatty.
I'll leave you with this story. When it first came out I remember reading tons of comments about how stupid this bitch was or how she deserved what
she got. You'll have to take my word since most articles seem to have closed comments. I wonder why.
