Life’s a Bitch, Then You Die: A Love Story

“Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony this life. Trying to make ends meet, you’re a slave to the money then you die.” — The Verve

I get it. I know sometimes people don’t think I do, but I do.

Your Situation Isn’t Unique At All

“Anyone who wants reparations based on history will have to gerrymander history very carefully. Otherwise, practically everybody would owe reparations to everyone else.” — Thomas Sowell

There’s this growing sentiment that somehow, for some reason, the times we’re living in are particularly bad or unique when they’re not. We’ve had pandemics before, worse ones. Slavery still continues in other countries to this day.

This is to say, live your life, and live it well, no matter what.

People still fell in love and made families during every era.

Don’t Go Backward

“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” — Isaac Newton

There also seems to be this growing sentiment that we’re reverting backward deep into the past. This is dumb. Patently and objectively false.

Create Your Own Utopia

“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.” — Thomas Sowell x 2

You know what else I get? I get the enticing nature of utopia, I really do. I get why some people come to the conclusion that life should and can be fair. The vision of the anointed makes sense to me in theory, but it just doesn’t work in practice.
