Kontinual, our editor, is someone with a built-in compass that separates stupidity from the useful. You can learn from this person. He pointed out to me, recently, that many of the replies on this forum come from people who seem to have too much time on their hands, and too much aggression.
Look... ah... I've been around this trip for awhile. I know what it's like to grow up in a world where every adult seems and/or is full of shit, avoids reality, gives false answers, etc. I am not in denial of the fact that this civilization is dying, that most people are natively not all that bright and with the addition of mass media and socialization, are bone stupid. I'm in full recognition of the land use crisis, pollution crisis, resources crisis and social instability crisis. I'm aware that we're seeing at least two great civilizations -- Asia and Europe -- exterminate themselves through pity. All of this is clear to me. I am not in denial.
But, we still have to live. Further, we want to live well, and that includes living so that we further the chances of victory.
The game isn't over yet. If you're angry and you have extra energy, you have two choices: you can wank yourself with rage and act our your emotions on others, or you can achieve something.
We have opportunities for people who want to help us influence the media stream that's the internet. If all of you angry badasses got together and actually worked on something other than your own selfish interests, which clearly don't fulfill you because you're still angry, you could influence the fastest-growing segment of news in the world.
Did you think about actually, you know, being effective instead of drowning in your own emotions?
