“We start off with high hopes, then we bottle it. We realise that we’re all going to die, without really finding out the big answers. We develop all those long-winded ideas which just interpret the reality of our lives in different ways, without really extending our body of worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short disappointing life; and then we die. We fill up our lives with shite, things like careers and relationships to delude ourselves that it isn’t all totally pointless.”
— Irvine Welsh (via fabuloso-thailand)

Nailed it. Political discourse in this country has gotten strangely bifurcated as the right uses terribly transparent two dimensional code words like this that get a ton of media attention and the left don’t, but splinter off into a million well-written and unread arguments. Conservatives use the soundbite by aiming for the intellectual level of someone who only understands or has the attention span for soundbites. We should be more upset about this in the USA.
