Don’t be So Negative

I’ve been accused of “being negative” just for stating the facts. I think that the people making the claim that I’m being negative are the ones who are actually negative.

Right-wingers are absurdly fatalistic, and tend to be whiny. The best thing for any of you people to do is to relax and take it easy. There’s a good chance we’re all completely and totally doomed. But if you’re in a state of depression and/or panic, your chances of escaping a doom scenario do not increase.

I’ve given you advice: I’ve said that if I were you, I would not want to be living in a mega-city in America, whatever happens next. You can do whatever you want with that. Maybe living in a mega-city will benefit you in some secret way.

Who knows.

What I know is that we are basically in the opening phases of the apocalypse, and if you’re already to the point where you can’t handle shit without getting all depressed and/or panicked, then you’re not going to do well in the middle of the apocalypse.

There’s some evidence we could be in a World War by November.

There’s some evidence Kamala Harris might win the election.

There’s no evidence that there will not be massive unrest, and riots, and murders, for the foreseeable future.

But some of it is funny.

You complaining about it or getting all freaked out doesn’t help you, or me, or anyone.

Stop saying that video games are “pozzed” because they have one gay character.

I think Cyberpunk is going to be great.

Wasteland 3 is fantastic.

Try to enjoy life.

Whatever is going to come is going to come and none of us have the ability to change it. What you have the ability to change is how you react to it. The more stable your emotional and psychological state, the more likely you are to react to it in a way that helps you.

Just try to relax.
