No, the one I linked to above.

Heh. Kill the system, not the people.

Although I spent nearly a decade at the bottom of the well, and sometimes feel myself falling back into it, these days (for the most part) I think I've got it under control. Nevertheless, I do feel like a giant fraud posting on this thread.

You take the depths the Koch's sank to far too lightly in that case. They where, not to put to fine a point on it, absolute monsters.


We should perhaps take this conversation over to the Political Thread but I'm not well known for taking the likes of the Kochs (the type of people who subvert governments, influence the public and generally pull strings from the shadows) lightly. They are far from the only ones, so celebrating such deaths is pointless because there'll be another one along presently. It's the system that amplifies and empowers their evil that's the problem - that's the thing we should be looking at. These members of the "superclass" are just the fungus that grows around the institutions which are supposed to help us all.

Hey, worth thinking about why you are sharing here.

You say you can't even summon the will to email but you've posted on this here public forum.  That's interaction there, risking yourself.  May feel like nothing but it isn't.

How about just breaking it down and getting the application form?  Even if you do nothing else, it is still a positive step.  Doesn't matter if you don't fill it in, send it in, go to the interview or get the job.  It's an action.

Way too many people don't appreciate how much of a challenge the tiniest step is.  All a bit shit?  Depends on how you are measuring things.  I'd say you aren't giving yourself anywhere near enough credit pal.

^^^ Entirely this ^^^

Go for it. Fill out the forms. Go to the interviews. When you're offered the job, turn it down with a belly laugh.

I've got no problem with honest retrospective and analysis, even jokes, but to celebrate seems awful to me. It drags us down to their level.

I'm sorry, DDD - it wasn't a dig at you.

Heh, thanks - I had a lot of fun writing Thorvald; he's like the Malcolm Tucker of Vikings :D

Whilst it's tempting to do so, I don't want to celebrate the death of any human being. I would much rather celebrate the death of the system which allows and encourages the worst of us to thrive.

Is that virtue signalling? I hope not.
