Firstly I want to say that I could give a shit about the economy. I could give a shit about corporations. I could give a shit about who gets elected president. I could give a shit about the wars. I've never heard a politician talk about evolution or the future of technology in their campaign speeches. I don't know who writes campaign speeches but I do know they insult my intelligence.
Why is it that we live in a society where everyone is conditioned not to give a fuck about anyone else. People are immature, selfish, stupid, and just plain mean to each other.
