I have only seen more each day to convince me of how true this is.
“Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who have ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. An entire generation, pumping gas, waiting tables. Slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no great war, no great depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t. We’re slowly realizing that fact. And we are very, very pissed off.”
