Hey what’s going on?
—Oh not much, not much,
just culture warrin’
—I saw you bash a dude’s head in with that baseball
Yeah, you know, you know how it is just culture warrin’, what can I say?
—Right, um, do we have to be doing this right now? Yeah man of course we gotta culture war
now! I’m young and I’m angry and my life lacks purpose and I fear that if I don’t
get that purpose in a war I’m never gonna get it at all. What do you want to do, not culture war? —Why does everything have to be culture
war? Why can’t I just buy a razor without it being culture war?
Cause if we don’t culture war the bad people win, and do you want the bad people to win?
—It’s just I don’t want everything to be culture war all the time. Can’t I walk down the
street without participating in some vague ideological battle?
Not when there’s bad people walking down the same street!
—who’s defining what’s good and
How is that not obvious to you?
—What if I don’t know?
—What if I don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong yet? What if what if I’m still trying to
figure that out? What if I haven’t accumulated enough life experience to
really make a judgement?
Ah so you want to be apolitical huh? —Yeah for now basically I just don’t know enough, I don’t want to engage.
Well, I hate to break it to you buddy but being apolitical is pretty political.
—How? What side are you even on anyway I can’t tell if you’re supposed to be like a neo-nazi
Eh whatever lets me hit more people. Haha, I’m disaffected!
—How is being apolitical being political?
Take Germany for example:
when the Nazis took over all the centrists became Nazis because they
didn’t have any values, which depending on what I stand for is either very good
or very bad.
—Okay I get that having values is important, I do have some
values, it’s just I’m tired.
Oh yeah of course!
For sure yeah yeah take your time think about it take as long as you need three
years five years twelve years however long you need to decide which side is
right and, and while you’re doing that maybe also think about how by not doing
anything you’re actually directly benefiting the bad people
because by not joining our side you’re basically joining theirs and the next
time I see you I will have to do what is appropriate with this bat in your skull.
—Wait wait i I’ve made up my mind I’m totally with you
Really? —Yes yeah yes you
you make a very compelling argument! Uh huh. Well I am pretty convincing.
—How bout this, I don’t have my bat on me so I can’t just be cultural warrin’ and right now at
this moment but how about how about the next time you put something on social
media I share it?
Wow, you’d do that for me? —Yeah yeah you know it’s it’s I mean
if just the price you gotta pay when you’re culture warrin’ okay see you around
man keep culture warrin’ okay see ya
