Some of you have done nothing with your life and you’re mad. You have a college degree & a smartphone with access to virtually anything and you can barely get out of bed in the morning while you spit on people who built a whole world with nothing but a horse, map, and an axe.
You’ve made nothing with access to everything. You’ve conquered nothing. Hell, you can’t even conquer yourself. So, go tear it all down. Scream into the void how unfair it all is. It’s not that you’ve wasted your brief time here. Surely not.
Don’t bother with your own legacy you’re busy shitting on the long dead who aren’t here to care. Go burn down every Starbucks. That’ll show them. Torch the Target. Tear down every monument. Deface every memorial. But what have you built? What will you leave behind?
Take your benzos. Watch your porn. Get Uber to drop off your dinner. Buy an adult coloring book. Have sex with strangers to ease your crippling anxiety. It’s not you. It’s the system really. It isn’t fair. Go cancel someone. Dox someone. They deserve it. You’re the good guy.
Don’t write an epic novel worth building a statue to remember you. Go troll seven-year-old problematic tweets ever on the hunt for the boogeymen. See now you’ve accomplished something. Cancel everyone. You’re a warrior now. A real hero.
And lastly whatever you do never ever take even a moment to self-reflect on your own failures. Never own them. Never take a hint of responsibility. Remember you’re just a helpless victim of circumstances beyond your control. This all means nothing. It’s like you weren’t even here.
