We Take Our Existance in Vain
You know what really grinds my gears? When you pull out of a drive-thru window at a restaurant and you get behind some old guy going 5 below the speed limit. --Old Chinese Proverb
- Gladiators (Animal fighting)
Killing humans (and animals) in the name of sport.
- Saloons (Clubs)
Killing brain cells in the name of finding a mate.
- Reality TV
Killing common sense in the name of money.
- Social Networking
Killing privacy in the name of information.
- Government Privilege
Killing freedom in the name of power.
What do the bullet points have in common? A chronic disease found inside all living creatures that keeps us from being perfect: vanity. Heck, we even have a magazine that exclusively tailors to it!
Stop me if I'm being too obvious, but if we don't change now we are destined to have the film Idiocracy become a documentary.
