We should all be people of action, joining in common endeavors to stave off the human-caused annihilation of nature, us, the orangutans, the whales, the future, the future for your children and grandchildren, but instead, this wordpressian meeting ground is proving to be a habitual playground for some seriously idiotic, stooopid believer nobodies – yeah, you know who you are.
Yet even the semi-upright types here, ones with a working critical cognitive apparatus, have no basic idea of what we are supposed to be doing with our great and vaunted superior intellects, honed by decades of impassioned and pleasureful reading. That goes doubly true for Fun Social Nihilism. At this here social media thing, the only venue that Fun Social Nihilism permits its world-wide global staff to enter, the results have been glorious, nihilistic failure! There is a zero-sum zone here.
In a word, we absolutely suck. O my god, are we bad at this. There hasn’t been the slightest change in the orbit of this browning planet because of FSN, and for obvious reasons. No one wants to entertain doom, however vividly relayed. The “stats” for FSN are thrillingly awful, pathetic, beyond exasperation into some other realm – there is a major, fatal inability to satisfy the social interests of other people here at FSN.
And yet zero sum zone that is precisely within the business plan and guiding ethos of FSN. We are all heading off, each in our way, to ‘Vion (shortened Oblivion, and rhymes with Zion), and it is only the most human who can go the way that their conscience and creative antipathies dictate, and not the one that entrances the murmurings of the deluded crowd. When some human construction is this bad, this under-performing, this deeply unrewarding and ignorable, there is some beautiful, romantic cosmic happiness afoot.
