What Is Wrong With Society

We could be here all day, so I’ll try to keep it short. Unfortunately, the easier question would be what isn’t wrong with society. I could probably count that list on my left hand (not my right, I’m left handed), but what would be the fun in that? To make things easier, I’ve broken this whole rant into sections.

Attitude

Do as we do, not as… well, forget that last part. Society tends to want people to be just like them. That’s the last thing we need, millions of teenage prima donas running around complaining to the world. Talk about something that’d drive every competent soul off the face of the Earth. That’d cause extinction… wait, I have we just found how the Dodo Bird died? Holy Extinction, Batman!

Influence

This sort of relates to the last point. Society has a big influence on… well… itself. You heard me, what it does it does. I know that sounds awfully obvious and stupid, but reread it a few times and think about it. I don’t want to wear the latest designer pajamas in public, thank you! If society told you to jump off a bridge, would you? (I apologize for all the subtle Dodo Bird references that I am obliged to include from this point on).

Fashion

“What do you mean you don’t have jeans from xyz? How could you!” You won’t believe how many times I’ve heard that (if only I had a nickel for each time… I’d be a rich man with a solid gold server). I can’t care less about your hilariously overpriced fashions. While you insult my jeans and t-shirt/polo, I’ll laugh at the fact that you’ll be paying off that VISA until I’m retiring on a beach sipping a Pina Colada.

Potpourri

While society is over jumping over the face of the Grand Canyon (see “Influence” above), I’ll be sitting here writing blog posts about their stupidity. Do us all a favor, if you are going to fit into “society”, do it to the kind that goes around in Tux t-shirts and uses Linux (guilty). Instead of following en masse, sit back and relax. Besides, society doesn’t believe in gratis software — after all, they use Windows!
