LIFE IS SHIT AND THEN YOU DIE

It is the futility of employment in an economy that primarily exists to make life luxurious only for the controlling elite that leads to drug abuse, alcoholism, single parenthood and hedonism. When people realise, as most do, their complete lack of worth, they seek oblivion or the transitory feeling of worth that creating more cogs for the machine brings them.

You will tell me that life is not all about work, that people should seek fulfilment outside of their work. I reply that you are a naive and blinkered fool. Deliver your platitudes to the man who has worked all day providing goodies for the lord of the manor and has returned home with only enough energy to eat a ready made meal and flop himself in front of some undemanding tosh on the goggle-box. If he can find enough strength he will punch you in the nose.

  1. Amen to what KJ said. Wish I was there to buy you a pint and just sit a while and curse the elites and their sycophants in Parliament, Congress, the CoE and everywhere else, and commiserate together instead of alone.

  2. “the man who has worked all day providing goodies for the lord of the manor and has returned home with only enough energy to eat a ready made meal and flop himself in front of some undemanding tosh on the goggle-box. If he can find enough strength he will punch you in the nose”

    I worked in food service for 3 and half years (AFTER I’d earned a bachelors degree!), and this is a perfect description. I was always exhausted, and often in (joint) pain (and that when I was in my 20s!). You can understand why I say nothing, now in my 50s, when people say “just take any job”. I think I MIGHT have enough strength and rationality at the end of such a day to shoot myself, but that would be it.

    • Wow, really? Glad I made your day!

      For that, you get a pic of me leading the St Michael’s (Episcopal*) Hiking Group last Saturday (Sierra wildflowers at their peak!)

      * Remember, MP, we’re looking for a priest {hint, hint}
