The internet was peddled as a meaningful and revolutionary tool, but capitalism being capitalism, it is now corrupted by filth, lies, and addiction.

Fixed that for you.

Capitalism was not necessary to put filth, lies, and addiction on the internet.

Perhaps not. But it helped.

“Mythology is not a lie, mythology is poetry, it is metaphorical. It has been well said that mythology is the penultimate truth — penultimate because the ultimate cannot be put into words. It is beyond words. Beyond images, beyond that bounding rim of the Buddhist Wheel of Becoming. Mythology pitches the mind beyond that rim, to what can be known but not told.”

Yeah, sites like this and fanediting in general exist despite the forces of capitalism. There will always be a group of passionate (or deviant) weirdos who do things regardless of profit motive, but I imagine that a vast amount of troubling, manipulative, or exploitative content online only exists because there’s money to be made doing it.

Whoever is behind those stupid “Hero Wars” ads that keep infesting YouTube deserves a concussion.

Just some guy.

How are all these subtle good things happening to me, yet I still feel like shit when I get back home?

And if I’ll eventually lose everything one way or another and suffer, wouldn’t it be best if we didn’t exist at all?

As two wise men once said, there must be more to life than this.

I used to feel that way. Then I stumbled upon Simone Weil’s article while browsing Wikipedia.

If I could get my hands on the guy who came up with the idea that sex sells and so peppered movies with sex stuff, making me addicted to that shit, He’d walk away from me with a face not even a mother could love.

Just some guy.
