Keeping track of the political discourse these days has become a dizzying endeavor. It’s hard to keep up with the who’s who of destroying America these days, so I’ve decided to take a step back and look at the larger picture here. And what I’m seeing is: we’re all going to hell in a hand basket, and it’s pretty apolitical. The intermittent violence punctuated with apathy to anything that isn’t one’s own niche issues has convinced me that perhaps none of us want this country to survive the next few months. We’re manifesting a particular brand of American nihilism that indicates a pervasive lack of cultural discipline. It’s as though we decided: United We Stand, Divided We Fall, but let’s be divided now. Everyone is hell bent on destroying this place, like a bacchanalia of chaos, and even the sane people are letting this place and everyone in it burn. This planet.
Let it burn. This is humanity. We will rise from the ashes to live another day so we can build something beautiful that we can burn to the ground.
