Damn Dok, she was being nice and civil, more angst would be fucked up, or was that sarcasm? Fuck if I know, I do know I want to sit down and have some discussions with purpleXi.

This is a world of force. We're edging away from that but it has always been about force. It will be about force for as long as we solve problems with ballistics. To argue otherwise is to be a victim, and who wants that? This world is hard, lonely, fucked up, and you take whatever you can get from it, because it only gets worse from here. One day, you're going to get older, and waste away and die. Nobody is going to remember Alexis the graceful soul but they will never forget Alexis the horrific savage.

Needs MOAR angst.

Do i hear Nietzsche hanging out at Hot Topic? Where he preaches the death of punk for we have killed him?

On second thought I should be concerned when Doktor Howl starts cheering me on. Can I just take back all the dirty gritty shit I just said?

No.  That's why I used the quote function.  Things come, things go, cringe is forever.

Evil doesn't work without good people. Good people will do the most repugnant, nasty shit for what they think are "the right reasons"

I was thinking more about how when you're rich people hate you because you buy new shirts and that deaf-mute girls are really bad at warning you of disasters.

That's an interesting question - can you? Like, does and should it make a difference whether:
  • it's something that still resonates with you but no longer seems practical to defend, or
  • it's something that resonated with you, but no longer feels right, or
  • it's something that didn't resonate with you, but sounded good "in-style," or
  • it's something less explicable?

Whether or not you succeed, you can try - and that alone has value, does it not?
