This is a re-post.
There are plenty of things to be pissed off about these days. But nothing,
nothing pisses me off like cynicism. Because it kills everything good. Like
self-pity, it destroys everything else but itself. And it does so
smugly. Think about that. I'm not original in saying that. It's just true.
Oh it's all so grand and easy to sit back like a know it all and
proclaim actions worthless. And declare all the cowardly spineless reasons why
one shouldn't be bothered. "That's the way it is; they have all the control,"
"Nothing will come of it, it'll be covered up and the corruption will go on."
Yes it will, if that's all you have to say. It takes effort to change things, in
case you hadn't noticed. But it's so much easier to be a fucking do-nothing critic,
isn't it? Just tut-tut and throw out some meek half-wittiness and sit back in
your own complacent, superior enabling.
Well I'm not having it. I'm sick
to hell of my generation's excuses. If you don't want a fight and are willing to
let things stay in the shitty shape they are, have at it. But not me. And don't
bring me down with your hopeless demoralizing diaper-dipping, either. I'll rip a
new one for you. Lead, follow or get out of the way. I'm no leader but I'll be
damned before I join the wallowing whining bunch of nay-saying lazy shits who shake
their heads with self-congratulatory cynicism.
