Our collapsing society

Posted by Ryan C. Jerz on September 05, 2023

This thread is a bummer, but man does it feel right. Two quotes hit me hard.

The first, because I feel it: "I think back to that optimism I had as a child and I mourn it. The society I live in is a hollowed-out shell of what I remember, and even that was a decade or more into the decline."

The second, because I wish we all lived it: "We may not have much power to stop enormous processes that were set in motion decades ago but we can at least tell the conmen to fuck off."
