Freedom fighters stand up for the victims of oppression and institutional misconduct.

Whether you think my generation qualifies is something you can argue against or for. But standing up for victims isn't really outside the vein of a freedom fighter.

Not that I was thinking about politics when I first came up with this name. It just sounded cool.

Edit:
Whether or not you think our economic situation is unfortunate and a result of bad luck, our world dying is something we can fully pin on "the olds" and is a great deal more significant than whatever the hell our situation is economically.

Rolling the wheel on your mouse down was "extrodinary laborious?"

I'm not seeing the issue with graphic design that punctuates whatever point the article is making.

If you have legitimate gripes with the content of this article, go ahead, I'm not interested in your inability to appreciate creativity.

He does have legitimate gripes with the article, and he posted them in fleshed out detail.

This is just the thing you always do where someone makes a snide remark about something as a small part of a much larger criticism, and you zero in on that and accuse them of deflecting to try and undermine that person's stance by implying they are unwilling to properly defend it... when they very clearly are.

When did I say Harr didn't make legitimate points?

I'm focusing on the first part, because, as I've already admitted, I don't really have a stance regarding anything else. I'll allow someone far more knowledgeable about economics to discuss sh!t with Harr and form an opinion after reading that discussion.

I do find it funny you take issue with me defending my behavior, and not with Harr going on a tangent attacking my behavior in the first place. thumb up

A refresher on the part of the post I responded to so I don't have to deal with this "ur a hypocryte" bullshit you and surt like doing:

bro, you still amaze me. Your ability to annoy me surpasses anyone I have ever met. I do not understand how you can persist despite the inevitable debunk, which always arises after you spew economic fallacies or slanderous exposÚs.

If only those darn millenials just pulled up their bootstraps! Then they could overcome those long term economic trends set in motion before they were born.

Pollution is all a "Leftist lie" and Surtur's a millennial, an older one but still.

Your superiority complex is impressive. Your ability to support your claims? Not so much.


Sorry, no sympathy for people whining about their situations of not being able to afford to live when they clearly have the English language know how to write an article about how hard their life is at 35 for not getting motivated to do something about it. Clearly, he's intelligent. Clearly, he's well-written and spoken. Clearly, he's lazy and should do something about his situation.


Do you want a checklist?


1. Go to college and get a degree in something you can do and it is a degree in something that can pay your bills. English Lit? Sure, after you get the functional career degree.

2. Don't drink, do drugs, or go clubbing while in college (summer break? Hell no. Summer classes).

3. Work full time in a career that will work towards your post-graduate career. Can't get into that field? Work anyway in a job that gives you relatable experience. Don't complain. Find a job that pays for some of your college.

4. Don't live beyond your means. No cable TV. No new car. Live in a shitty house or small apartment. Read #2. Don't eat out: make food and plan your meals.

5. Apply for grants and scholarships.

6. Do your damn homework.

7. Study for your tests. Give yourself plenty of time to study.




If you can't follow that checklist, and then complain about having to pay 50% of your income to rent because you choose to live beyond your means and want to blog about your failure on the internet, looking for sympathy: sorry, I don't have it.

If you feel inferior to me because you're still in the "not started" stage of your life, stop making excuses and do something about your situation. If you feel I have a superiority complex because I chose to live within my means, sometimes had all-nighters doing homework, and still stayed awake at work the whole day, then you have a clear problem with honesty with yourself.

I just passed your comments by my former boss as he has a similar situation to me. He suggests to stop playing the blame game and get busy. FYI, he's a Berniecrat.

Agree with dadudemon that most people want to complain about life being unfair without implementing change in order to improve the quality. We all have friends who complain about their relationships, their jobs, etc. who don't do a damn thing to change it. They need to take ownership of their life. It's about having accountability.

Aight, I shouldn't embellish, pollution won't kill all of us by 2030.

It'll just kill our children.

But we're gonna run out of fish by 2050, at which point the ecosystems we depend on for food will collapse.

And that's assuming "mutually assured destruction" is enough to keep a wacko from sending the world into nuclear war.
