I blame a combination of extended education and increased social visibility. Advertising doesnt help.
Essentially, in the old days, if you were thick you worked in a factory and you didnt question it too much.
These days, if you are thick, you get aid to go to collage where you will get a great job like on the adverts in a hospital (brain sergeon), the FBI
or special forces, lawyering and realty etc etc. This means that people are grown to expect things greater than working in the factory. They then
spend 10 years before they come down from that high and realise it was lies.
However, because of extended social visibility they can see what everyone else has. You can see it on your Mayspace page, ooops, they banned myspace,
its Facebook now and social visibility is a bit harder. But its still there via forums and message boards etc. Essentially you can see what other
people have. And most people dont lead with jobs like fork truck driver, cab driver, factory serf, instead they say Gangster, whore, musician,
promotion agent, artist or anything to extended the delusion that they are not thick. And because they see everyone else doing that they cant let
The thing with young people is that the margins are harder to see. Young girls that are destined to be fat and ugly dont quite know it yet and still
pose in the mirroe for facebook shots and go to the beach in bikinis. thick blokes are the same but its harder to see. It just takes a long while for
reality to sink in and whilst they can hack about on the internet they can keep the delusion going.
Thats opposed to the old days when they accepted their fate a lot sooner.
Im currently in a very black neighbourhood and you can see this in the streets. Black people that pretty much know they'll never amount to much other
than working at Walmart but they are still faced each day with the lure of being a Football ace or singer. Ooops, I stand corrected. All those guys
hanging at the street corners staring savagly at the white dude on the wrong street will all be presidents of the USA.
