I am sitting here eating my breakfast before I head off to the endless grind of life as known as ‘work’. I work at a job basically being an unglorfied lumberjack, and make 14$ an hour, I work 60 hours a week but through technicalities I do no get any benefits and overtime is not paid and because I am ‘temporary’ I could be canned for anything. Despite the hard work there are more girls running chainsaws here than guys…feminism for the win I guess?
Despite going to a prestigious school and getting a good degree, I guess I should be lucky in this current society to have any job at all right? Society is so strange, we are endlessly told how we are the most advanced and progressive empire in history, yet true unemployment sits around 50% and feminism and all its man-hating continues unabated. We are so ‘progressive’ yet we think its ok to hate men who built this entire empire.
I actually want to publish a sci-fi book I wrote, and I actually tried getting published a few years ago until I realized that absolute shit hole publishing is of ‘who you know’ and not how good your writing is. The popularity of twilight, hunger games, 50 shades of grey is evidence enough.
I came across an interesting quote from some guy on a board where people were discussing the military, it is something I have long considered doing, despite my general reservations about society in general, the guy’s line was something like ‘to someone who does not consider themselves part of the collective, it would be foolish to sacrifice for the collective’ it struck me pretty deeply, after all, I do NOT consider myself part of this cruel joke America has become with man-jaw females running everything, men endlessly feminized, no good jobs anywhere, and people more concerned about american idol and dance moms than what is happening in Syria.
In some ways the military seems like the last bastion of decent values, but every other day I see a story about some guy fired for looking at a female the wrong way. I am not part of dance-mom culture, so would it be wrong to join the military that ultimately PROTECTS american-idol and all the other shit?
I dont know…no easy answers. Meanwhile I will be running a chainsaw all day in the sun, thinking ‘how did it come to this…?’
