But if I'm being truthful ya the musical chairs of jobs isn't from any sort of ambition it's from 1) being unstable 2) using temps. I never really suggested otherwise i just think you seem to pride yourself on giving up all hope as if that's some sorta consolation prize and to me it's just not. It's a defense mechanism and i have my own variety of those that i use to cope such as fantasizing about easy money where as you fantasize about being part of some movement or whatever. I know some of the revolution **** is for memes but it just looks to me like yet another form of cope.

Nobody likes being a loser my friend. But if you ask me are all **** jobs equal my answer is no. So where as a couple dollars an hour difference maybe means nothing to you, to me it matters. That's the basic difference.
Of course it's a defense mechanism, you nitwit. Get on my irony level. I should think the idea of an incel living with his mother posting pseudo-insincere threads about revolution would obviously be ludicrous and cringe. I don't post memes I am the meme.

And I'm just trying to get through your thick skull that even if you're never going to storm the Bastille or even become a functional adult you can at least hold onto a shred of pride by not letting these capitalist scum colonize your brain with selfishness disguised as enlightened self-interest.

The irony is just something to hide behind. Once again.

The difference between aspiring for easy money vs attaching yourself to some kind of social movement is that either you make some quick money or you don't. That's a concrete thing to hope for that can be easily verified whether you fail or not. Where as your contribution to some social cause is more nebulous and how significant it is to you is more subjective.

I don't even know what you mean by letting them colonize my brain to be selfish. Selfishness is my natural inclination. I want more money because i think i will enjoy that more. Not only does my own experience confirm that, the studies I've heard are that when you are below 70k a year earning more money does improve happiness but after that it tops out. You and i are both well below that mark. So i think the choice between say 12 vs 18 dollars an hour seems pretty obvious to me and most people i know irl...

Rational self interest is supposed to be when everyone does what's in their own best interest while recognizing the rights of others so that competition breeds innovation and success for the group as a whole, but really it's just withdrawing consideration for others and getting what you can at the expense of others. American capitalist doctrine and propaganda promotes the former but really fosters the latter. I'd say you're bad at all that and don't want to be that but ultimately it still infects your worldview.

Once again that's another conveniently nebulous consolation prize on your part. In your mind there is some serious symbolic implications to what you are saying but it's all post hoc rationalization bull****. I could just as easily say you have just forfeited your mind to a rather lazy albeit trendy version of online communism. As if it's any less of a half baked ready made mold that you fell into conveniently around the same time that everyone else did.

Or if i felt like it i could try to be more charitable. It's all just propaganda at the end of the day either way.

The truth is though, and i know this is somewhat sociopathic, but if i could just snap my fingers and be rich, even if other people had to suffer, i probably would press that button. To me it would be the safe, possibly phony answer to suggest otherwise.

Translation: I who have bitched about post-modernism saying that truth is relative am now handwaving away everything that criticizes my self-absorption as just propaganda cause everything is just propaganda at the end of the day but also self-interest is rational truth.
