Capitalist Obligations

Social  Capitalist  Obligations 

       It’s here again, the time of the year that most of us can’t bare, the holidays. I have so many things I want to say, where do I begin? Do I start with the false religion that is shoved down everyone’s throats, or the false sense of obligation to provide those who surround you with gifts, whether you think they deserve them or not? Oh no, or perhaps, we should start with the false sense of happiness you are expected to give off for no apparent reason at all. Last week you were miserable, but now all of a sudden you are expected to be “Jolly”; fuck you! 
The whole capitalist festival is a ruse, and I am tired of it! These people had the whole year to talk to each other, the whole year to show each other they cared… the whole year! Yet somehow I suppose in the skewed view of reality that they hold, this one week justifies the feelings they have demonstrated the entire year through their hideous actions. 
It’s sickening… this exchange of goods between people who deep down inside do not like each other. This pretend, false happiness circle jerk, that circles around whatever fictional character the masses have chosen. 
The worst part, those who seem to celebrate the most are usually the most ignorant of the bunch, they actually buy into the bullshit. Individuals whose mental faculties inhibit them from the motivation necessary to fucking go to Google and investigate their ridiculous belief system!!! 
I know I can’t be alone in this sentiment of disdain for the holidays, and it’s not just the winter ones (these simply happen to be the most ridiculous of the bunch). 
I mean, are you not tired of having to pretend for the multitude of imbeciles that surround you? Perhaps, I am a bad person, with a rotten heart i’ve considered that possibility before. No I can’t be, because I actually care about solving the problems that actually matter. You know real issues like improving the quality of life for those less fortunate then all of us greedy capitalist pigs, exchanging gifts and singing carols meanwhile others starve to death.
Maybe you enjoy the unnecessary shopping, the constant emotional capitulation, and most of all the stress. Well, I fucking don’t! If I wanted to give you a gift I would on my own accord, not because society told me it was something I was obligated to do. If I wanted to sit around, and believe in fairytales, I would pick one that was much more interesting than the desert dwelling peasant you call Jesus, or Moses, or Mohammad. Last, if I wanted to truly enjoy my day I would do something I find truly gratifying, rather than surrounding myself with people whose company doesn’t stimulate my Serotonin receptors at all!   
Just think about it, you aren’t happy… You’ve been deceived! Worst of all, you know whose fault it is? It’s the fault of your parents, and their parents, and their parents, parents… You’ve been brainwashed, indoctrinated, and you don’t even realize it. 
As a child you were taught this is what is to be done, and perhaps as a child you actually did feel happiness with the acquisition of new gifts. The problem is that as an adult your attempt at returning to that state is futile, that hollow sentiment of happiness for the material has long vanished. And like a drug that short peak of excitement quickly fades away into oblivion like an orgasm leaving you with only an infinite empty void.
I imagine if you are reading this it’s because you are trying to find a way out, you are attempting to escape this facade. Like me you have grown tired of the constant push of capitalistic consumerism upon you! You seek something more fulfilling to satisfy you existential vacuum, you’ve grown tired of the illusion.
If so I must confess, I do not have the answers you seek, and cannot solve the existential problems you face. The most I can do is let you know that you are not alone in your search, not alone in your refusal to conform to the ignorance the masses consume. I wish I could end this on an upbeat, I wish I could give you a solution, but I cannot.
My advise in the matter is to keep searching, keeping questioning, keep working on what actually makes you feel fulfilled. Personally, I won’t be celebrating these festivals. I won’t be exchanging gifts, and I won’t be happy about the ones I  unwillingly receive.
I’m tired, I’m exhausted, and I don’t have all the time in the world to cater to the empty customs, and traditions our culture imposes on me. I exhort you to continue being free thinkers, and not giving in to the consumerism that surround you, question everything and do not simply follow because those around you urge you to. 
Last, remember this one thing, nobody has moral high ground over you, nobody can tell you what is wrong and what is right, or what path to go down, in these things they are equally as ignorant as you, so I say fuck them and find you own path. - Cheers everyone.
