So what's to say?

Lots. I don't know. Personally, I go between hating most of humanity and wishing that it could just fuck off and die and liking parts of humanity. Not going between total hate and total love but between total hatred and partial hatred mixed with love. Often, pure hatred comes out of realizing that despite Obama or whatever land mark that you want to talk about Americans are still intellectually incurious and somewhat lazy. Changing this is going to be a long term project, to be sure, but fuck I sure wish that as many people cared about the outside world as care about getting large screen LCD HDTVs. We're still living in Day Dream Nation, as Sonic Youth titled it. I try to live outside of that daydream as much as possible, but what my fellow humans do matters a lot to me in that my own choices are nowhere near enough. But I feel like I have no obligations to this society as a whole, no obligations to the mainstream certainly, and don't fly off the handle not out of respect for it but because such actions violate my own personal code of morality. I have no excuses.
