“being born to lose . . . we are told that wecan transcend that, and often realize that is BS, that a capitalist society will try to crush you, to holdyou down . . . that you are basically screwed. Constant attempts at control, at divisionism . . . it’s themath laid out by those that hold the puppet strings, ‘The Mathematics of Defeat’. You learn to live with it, maybe you ascend . . . maybe you don’t. It’s garbage time for humanity.”
