Does anyone else just feel like they're sick and tired of everything? The politics specifically, it all seems like one big joke, like a circus, a farce played out upon the world by a bunch or spoiled rich snobbish brats that love to set those they step on apart, handing everyone insanely stupid psittacisms to hurl endlessly at each other while they continue to rob everyone blind hoarding ever more wealth and power. It's just so boring, yet so absurd, and so many seem programmed to laugh like imbeciles upon hearing anything apart from trust for the oh so glorious state/businesses ruling the world.

I suppose that sums it up. Every bit of rhetoric I hear, I just don't care anymore. I'm tired of jerks trying to manipulate me in any direction.

Yeah, it's exhausting hearing about politics all the time. It's hard to really give a crap about most things at the moment when all you see is just the same stuff being argued about over and over, on every site.

It's like a never ending parade of garbage trucks loaded with soiled diapers.

The only viable option is to learn to sit back and laugh at the absurdity of it all, then focus on the things you can actually meaningfully influence.

That would seem probable. One day a statue of some jerk, next day just some mountain of poo.

Sadly, voting is like using an eyedropper to raise the level of oceans, and endless debates are always in circles of doom, so it really just leads to ever more depression of futility IMO. It doesn't seem like there really is any meaningful way to do anything ultimately, just a handful of ways to do a who shipload of nothing.
