We are not held together by love, national pride or common humanity.
We are held together by the market, the global reserve currency.
The driving force is necessity, or perhaps convenience.
We don’t love each other,
But we do need each other.
In one way,
You could think of ageing as
The expiration of novelty in your life.
People looking to the free market to solve all their problems,
The free market also created a bunch of their problems.
What’s the point in doing something good
If you can’t tell everyone about it?
You must knock people off of the pedestals
That others put them on.
Ultimately, it is good for them.
When someone says you don’t have ‘taste’
What they are really saying is that you don’t have their taste
And you can ignore them.
Getting older sucks
(…at least based on my experience)
But it is also a privilege,
Because many people die before they get the chance to grow old.
