think modernity is one of the main reasons why i'm feeling lost and powerless. bourgeouis society is degrading to me. our every waking moment is dedicated to mindless consumerism and enrichment through materialism. my generation have no worthy cause to fight for, no vision or purpose. we foolishly buy into the notion of our society as a utopia while arrogantly exporting the virus to the rest of the world. our society is phony. everybody pretends to be satisfied with their own mundane existence while secretly feeling nothing but emptiness. what we need is the creation of a new man, who will reject materialism and devote his life to fighting corruption and evil . that's what tyler durden was trying to do before that bastard narrator killed him. i don't mean to sound pretentious, this is just the way i see it.
