i personally don't care. not just because i'm leaving.
i wouldn't care even if i was staying.
in fact, if it gets bad enough, i might come back.
i think the main problem is that we're too open minded. too focused on brainstorming and talking about problems than we are on solving them.
imagine the whole of the country as the boys from that 70's show - taking a deep toke on a joint, then telling their braindead friend across the table about the problems, and what we could be doing about them as they exhale. then imagine the scene changing to a stupid fucking domestic dispute between jackie and kelsow about how she doesn't get enough attention and he doesn't get enough luvvin'.
nothing will ever be fixed.
problems will continue to possess the illusion of growth [after all, this isn't the first generation to foretell and lament over the impending shit-hole life we're all doomed to if we don't straighten up our acts], and we'll still be squabbling over who got the most hot dogs at the barbecue instead of doing what we said we were gonna do.
i just wish everyone would shut up and let it happen.
we're about where we need to be for the culture to devolve into one of those badass, post-apocalyptic, cyber-punk video games.
how fucking cool would it be to live out deus ex?!
let it go already!
