I am the representative embodiment of my nihilistic culture I am narcissistic insatiable petty apathetic and I am above all an emotional invalid Yet up until very recently I was not consciously aware that I was guilty of having any of these wholly pejorative attributes because I had unconsciously suppressed my inherent will to attain a meaningful existence in favor of the comfort and security that complacency and futility provide There exists in me a void that is not uncommon to find in the members of my Eurocentric society which is derived from the conscious or unconscious knowledge that our culture is entirely devoid of meaning This is more specifically the plight of my generation which has been defined by its disillusionment apathy and inaction rather than its accomplishments beliefs or ideologies Escapism is the safety mechanism that enables our flight from actuality and subsequently our ability to exist because we have been cursed with a wealth of advantages and a lack of restrictions For example I am free to choose my own religion I am not stifled by or subjected to economic disadvantage I am not bound to subservience by an oppressive or tyrannical government I am blessed with a myriad of conveniences by my technologically advanced society and I come from a nurturing and supportive family so who the hell am I to complain about my circumstances The only explanation I can give in retort to my profession that I have been cursed by my inherent advantages is since my life is completely devoid of any profound suffering it is subsequently lacking any meaningful happiness because man only experiences these feelings in terms of their relative relationship to one another Thus I vainly invent my own wholly unfounded reasons to bemoan my existence in the same way that a hypochondriac invents his psychosomatic illnesses because the longer we feign to have a justifiable cue for suffering the more that that suffering actualizes itself
