and yes, this is from Jacob Clifton, AGAIN. It’s not my fault that he’s amazing.
We think there’s this mystic zero-sum balance of shittiness, evil is necessary, heroes need villains: That’s a lie. That’s the worst lie you were ever sold. We walk in these painful shoes that don’t fit right, and we think well, that’s just the price of being alive — but the world is so much better than that. Buy shoes that fit better; stop pretending that suffering was ever necessary.
