“That’s just the way the world works.”
“A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.”
“Contribute to society.”
“Be a functioning member of society.”
Take a good look at what this really means. Look at this society and tell me it isn’t a completely backwards clusterfuck. I dare you.
What is it to be a functioning member of a dysfunctional thing? It’s just hiding the truth behind a double-negative, then leaving out the double part in the middle. It’s really not that clever, but you won’t see it if you’re not looking for it because the lie is in what’s missing, not what’s there.
What is an educated, responsible, hard-working child molester?
Social mores, conventional wisdom, etc… It’s just a verbal slight-of-hand to hide and glorify the truth of dysfunction in our society. No respectable person would choose to be a part of it.
If this society is really so great, why are most people in it miserable slaves? Because it, and the behaviors it teaches, are dysfunctional.
If you look around at what everyone else is doing, and you see they’re not getting ahead, aren’t happy, etc., why the hell would you follow suit? Are you stupid?
You’re looking right at it! Everyone is shooing themselves in the foot, and complaining about how hard it makes life to have a bleeding hole in their foot. So, hey, here’s a jenius notion; Don’t shoot yourself in the foot just because everyone else is doing it! Is this really such a difficult concept to understand?
This is why I’m a “weirdo;” I don’t participate in Conventional Stupidity. How hard is it to not do a thing? You can fall asleep and not do pretty much everything there is. How about not being a dumbass? Some people are at their best when they’re asleep because it’s the only time they’re not being a dumbass…
Scofflaw, vagrant, ne’er-do-well; the names given us who have, and practice, common sense. Rabble, trash, riff-raff, etc…
Proud rouser of rabble, I am.
