Warning: The following clip will give you chills!
If you’ve ever contemplated the hypocrisy of society, it’s more than likely you’ve gone a little bit mad at one point or another.
After all, it’s mind-numbing to consider that while conundrums like world hunger and dirty energy can be resolved within our lifetimes, the majority of the populace is tuned into reality TV shows like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and are apathetic to the issues.
At the end of the day, when one takes a good, hard look at the world, they are likely to be more depressed than impressed with humanity’s course. Of course, there are good people on this planet doing what they can to improve Earth for others and future generations, but a large majority of the population still needs to wake up and take responsibility for their actions.
The disdain regarding society’s ignorance is what a young, anti-social computer programmer expresses in the clip below. The man, who works as a cyber-security engineer during the day and a hacker at night on the TV series Mr. Robot, is asked what bothers him most about society. His response is likely to blow you away!
The interviewer asks: “What is it about society that disappoints you so much?”
“Oh I don’t know … Is it that we collectively thought Steve Jobs was a great man, even when we knew he made billions off the backs of children? Or maybe it’s that it feels like all our heroes are counterfeit? The world itself just one big hoax, spamming each other with our burning commentary bullshit, masquerading this insight; our social media faking this intimacy. Or is it that we voted for this? Not with our rigged elections, but with our things, our property, our money. I’m not saying anything new, we all know why we do this, not because Hunger Games books makes us happy, but because we want to be sedated. Because it’s painful not to pretend, because we’re cowards. F*ck society.”
