If you had the choice that cypher from the matrix had, "to be plugged back in and remember nothing", you wouldn't want it?
For me, its tempting. Agony is great and all but bliss feels sooooooo good.

Lying in bed, surfing the internet. You don't feel sleepy. Your bored and your current activity seems meaningless. You feel somewhat blue for no reason that you can see. (It's a normal thing for you) Anxiety creeps up behind you, you can feel it.
Well, don't be deceived by false optimism. Life really is pointless. The state is really out to get you and you really do have no fuure to speak of. Even your welfare checks will soon stop, once the Federal Government collapses...then comes the starvations...then the riots... then the death camps. So, forget the happy stories and jokes. You're f**ked.

You never know, someone might read it, watch it , look at it and do something good.
Happiest is he who has nothing left to lose
For when he gives, he gives everything
Such that nothing may remain
Of what was once his existence.
Into the Great Oblivion I will one day go
Hand-in-hand with this Nothing
Which I claim as my own.
May you extract some great pleasure
From my venture into the unknown.

You know, I have the same thoughts as you. Often I sit and think, "What's the point?"
However, there is a little voice inside of me that says that, eventually, things will turn weird, and that's when people like you and me somehow rise to the occasion and do things that are very important. Believe it!
