Bad news: Each of us just became roughly 2-3 billion people less relevant
Just a quick link to an excellent, grimly poetic article by Karl (Say No to Life) on the latest horrible news:
China is relaxing its one-child policy. The "liberal left thought police" are apparently thrilled with this coup for their idea of human rights, which apparently entails the right to do whatever stupid thing you want without thinking for a second about the consequences, and the state has to support you even if you failed so drastically to anticipate the future that you can't even feed the child you brought into this world because, just because because. (Because rights! Because I'm bored! Cannon fodder! The more the merrier!) But as Karl points out, even Joe Average looks a little nervous as the head count ticks higher. When there are ten billion people here, who's going to give a shit about you, Joe?
Let's think about the absurdity of a billion redundant people, with roughly the same biologically and then culturally dictated take on life, living in just one single country. Then they (or their overlords; but aren't said overlords just responding to the popular desire to drown their girl babies so their sons can have nice, long lives as miserable virgins?) go and decide that they don't care if there are yet more of them trampling on each other's souls just as long as each unique ME snowflake gets two MINI-ME snowflakes, a matching set, a meaningless boy and a hopeless girl. Hm. It kind of makes me want to throw up my hands and go overdose on Tylenol. You're too nightmarishly short-sighted and selfish, grape apes, and ya never seem to change, no matter how many gadgets your rare geniuses equip you with.
But don't get your hopes up, thought police, pro-choice and pro-life alike.
I'm going to tough it out as long as it takes to annoy as many people as possible. Cause I ain't even depressed. I'm just too well aware of how much worse I could have had it. (And how much worse it looks likely to get.)
