This article is my yahoo page America is an alienated SHITHOLE!
This is typical of an article in America, it has some facts "Nearly a quarter of people surveyed said they had "zero" close friends with whom to discuss personal matters. More than 50 percent named two or fewer confidants, most often immediate family members, the researchers said."
All right, true, good.
People still don't really understand the Republican's Power, what money can do, what money means, that money is everything.
Look at this: "People were not asked why they had fewer intimate ties, but Smith-Lovin said that part of the cause could be that Americans are working more, marrying later, having fewer children, and commuting longer distances."
All right, working and commuting distances makes sense. But fucking not getting married and not having kids. What the fuck is that!!!
The Reader of Depressing Books blog has gotten 51,368 hits. But Yahoo has gotten 1,000,000 in the last hour.
What does get from the internet, not meaningless and being nice, reading books, and being weird.
But YOU DON'T HAVE ANY FRIENDS BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH BABIES, AREN'T MARRIED AND LOVE JESUS!!!
All right, here's my existential opinion on why people don't have friends anymore.
First America is divided into a million little compartments of human activity.
If you are christian you can't talk to non-christians.
If you are non-christian you can't stand christians.
That slims down 15 percent of the population.
Everyone is divided into
upper middle class
middle class white collar
middle class laboror
people of each class cannot talk to people of other classes.
So that cuts it down even farther.
So at that point it comes to like everyone having like 10 percent of the population to talk to.
Democrats can't talk to republicans.
Republicans can't talk to democrats.
non-voters don't talk to either of them.
Punks don't to kids who listen to pop.
Goth and punks don't talk.
40 percent of America is so mentally ill and fucked no one wants to them.
40 percent of America, found in all classes and colors are assholes.
Basic point, america is divided in a million ways, because America is a country of division.
We could go even smaller, say just plain redneck hicks don't to harley hicks.
Old money won't talk to new money.
Or we could go with Marx's version, each human views themselves as a market device to gain wealth and be exploited in capitalism. So each human views themselves as a business, that implies each human views all other humans as surplus population that must be competed against to survive in the economic field.
Ever see two brothers, one is seven, the other five, they are fighting like mad and screaming to play with a single toy.
You got it, right there.
