Everyone Wants You To Be Happy

I hear it all the time, that everyone wants you to be happy, everybody wants you to be free. But I'm not all that sure. From what I can see, a lot of people don't know, or maybe just won't admit, that what they really want when they talk like politicians and philosophers about your happiness and freedom is that they want you to be just as goddamn miserable, normal, tied down, predictable, and dull as they are. Otherwise, they would themselves feel left out, overshadowed, or discriminated against. This is, more or less, how we ended up as a country full of embarrassed nobodies being led by confident moneyed interests. How could we not end up with a president like George Bush—a man who's a true representative of it all.
