I just realized the only reason I can convince myself to get a job is because the money would go to funding our drug habits and things that aren’t rent and bills. Cool now I have a focus.
"The media give substance to, and thus intensify, narcissistic dreams of fame and glory, encourage common people to identify themselves with the stars and to hate the ‘herd’, and make it more and more difficult for them to accept the banality of everyday existence."
- Christopher Lasch, The Culture of Narcissism (via sethorphic)
"The twenty-first century class war is engulfing the natural world on which everything rests. We can see how clearly the great environmental battle of our time is about money, about who benefits from climate destruction (the very few) and who loses (everyone else for all time to come and nearly every living thing). This year, Hurricane Sandy and a crop-destroying, Mississippi-River-withering drought that had more than 60% of the nation in its grip made it clear that climate change is here and it’s now and it hurts."

Like actually I cannot get it through my head how there are climate deniers and that they go on believing whatever it is they do while island nations disappear and people die in the masses from giant freak storms. I mean yeah the earth warms naturally but this is some intense shit, it’s obvious we aren’t helping the situation and are only making it worse. But it’s cool everyone the GOP has this theory a magical unicorn will fly down from the heavens of god and save us all from our own destruction.
