They Don't Like You

by metavalent

That’s right.

They Don't Like You AND Envy You At The Same Time

Easy to laugh now Tim and Chris, but wtf knew this in 1992, or 2002, or even 2012 for that matter? We thought we were part of something that could educate, uplift, and heal the world, oblivious that there were those who hated us even unto death for precisely that reason. They quoted D.R., “Weakness is Provocation,” to themselves enough times in the mirror to believe it and act upon it. Completely failing to comprehend that the adage is only in statecraft, for Machiavelli, and then only to bloodthirsty predators like Moloch. It is only pertinent to monsters willing to incinerate millions to achieve their own ambition. So yeah, NO. ✋
