Emotion gives context to the logic of a political argument. Arguing that people without a personal stake in an issue are better spokespeople for that issue because they’re ‘unbiased by emotion’ delegitimizes the real-life experiences and authority of the people affected by the issue by constructing them as overemotional reactionaries.
In short: no, actually; I can be pissed off and still dismantle your entire duckfricked argument.
Tonight’s all about exhaustion, loneliness and my inability to solve an inhomogenous Legendre equation. If there are other categories relevant for being a functional human being, I’m sure I’m secretly failing them too.
All at once, the consequences. All at once you are no longer free, it’s all coming back around, all at once. Life, bleary, washed-out, snaps back into focus. The red light on the tower still blinks in the distance and every message in this world has a meaning. It all makes sense, and you are finally being punished.
You can’t think of a time you have ever been happier."
