Anyone who feels they are a have-not can then buy into that lifestyle and adopt that identity to instantly become part of an in-group where they can receive acceptance and even applause from other members of that group But that isn't true connection in the same way that friendship or family is. It is just a puffed up imitation of true community where lots of lost souls are all egging each other on to greater and greater depths of nihilism That is quite true. I had forgotten about that aspect of it all, as well. And that second paragraph of yours is like poetry, my brother. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
