Default Are you a small souled bugman?

Quote:
A bugman is your typical big left leaning city dweller. He is usually obsessed with consumerism, lining up to purchase the newest iPhone or MacBook when it comes out, and using a smartwatch/smart home speaker for longer than the week after he bought it. Chances are he owns other throwaway smart gadgets as well. All his tastes in movies, music, expensive food, art, and more are determined by what review sites and blogs say.

Everything about his personality and life is not defined by who he is, but by what he buys and his consumerist tendencies. He'll be subscribed to at least one, maybe multiple subscription services, he'll happily use social media and upload all of his information to the cloud, and he'll gravitate towards things that seem "rational" and use big words.

In fact, their social media use defines a lot about who they are, as they try to get the most likes on social media bragging about their life and viewing the lives of others who do the same.

Yet there is something big missing about their life, something that can be seen in their face. Something that can be seen the minute you strip away all the consumerist choices and realize, there's nothing else. Their lives are empty, hollow, and all about serving corporations, until they die, and this is seen in their empty insectoid stare that implies they're dead inside, giving them the name bugmen.

A lot of you are, that's why you watch sportsball.

We watch sports because we're empty and shallow? Is that the premise, here?

. look, majority of people live in sheeptopia. same thing on the right. only about 10 percent of people are real ******, most people do jobs because its financially comfortable, safe and stable but not exactly what their best life should be. And they serach for things to fill the void that they couldnt have been, dressing nice, buying gadgets, eating, traveling, and dare i say it, having children. some people have children to give their lives purpose.

You watch sports because you have no soul or at best a tiny underdeveloped soul.

Why left leaning? I'm a right leaning bugman. We want to be acknowledged too!

It's true, lots of right leaning bugmen too.

Those that go "Murica Yeah" and "Israel is our greatest ally".

Woah, those are too far right, not leaning.
