Well, the same thing can be said about defending socialism. Why 
should I waste my breath arguing that socialism makes more sense than 
capitalism? I might as well go with the flow.

Oh, I remember now. The fucking system makes me so sick to my 
stomach, including the shitty politicians who we get to vote for, 
that if I can't find a way to communicate with other people who share 
that belief, I might as well blow my brains out like Abby Hoffman.
