The "Storm Area 51 Facebook group" has become a breeding ground for a particular subgenre of sh*tposting: depression memes. In this Vlog, we argue that depression memes are the most modern development of a philosophical and psychological sentiment immortalized over 150 years ago in what is considered one of the first existentialist stories: Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella Notes From Underground.

The Power of Now...no such thing as hyper-“awareness” it’s overthinking (an addiction to thinking), combined with an unappreciation of the “NOW” the absolute present

So, while entertaining, this video gave me no reason not to be depressed.

Actually, it made me double down...and gave me a new book to add to my reading list.

Just a theory you could be over thinking edgy memes made by teens who are self diagnosed as depressed due to having mixed values contrived from a poor culture they can’t fit into because the normal they think they must be isn’t even normal ?

Stop with the stupid whooshing sounds. It’s super distracting

Maybe if the modern world had anything to live for then people wouldn't have to joke about how worthless their lives are. Our generation knows that the system is effectively designed to keep you a submissive debt slave your whole life.

No ad for BetterHelp?
Ah, 2019

Conscious inertia, also today known as Analysis Paralysis. Where you have so much bounty, variety, choice, freedom, and information on just about any decision that you spend insane amounts of time analyzing what you should or should not do that you end up doing nothing.

2 days ago

Oh, and I almost forgot, you then go on to analyze the act of doing nothing rather than acting at all.

I feel pretty on board with that plan about now.

Millennials and Gen Z's are mostly a bunch of pussies taking sadistic pleasure in whining about and avoiding the tough fact that life has inherent suffering, effort and responsibility. Those who get on with it, find meaning, those who don't, try to spoil the show for everyone else.

People choosing to be depressed. It’s funny because it’s actually true.

Our world is in spiritual poverty, no one cares to plant a tree knowing they will never enjoy its shade, the very idea of doing something that would solely beneifit another is seen as a chore. We say life is too short Yolo and what ever else it takes to convince ourselves that its better to run around chasing abstract idea's, then to stop even for a few moments and really look around your self. Would you even recognize what you see or even understand how it came to be. For how is it in a time with more humans then ever, we find ourselves in shortage of humanity. What's truly absurd is we figured out how to destroy our planet before we figured out how to get along. The path forward is quite simple, understand and love each other or collectively perish, there is no complexity there.
