It's because we have so much to live up to. >inb4 whining millenial
Yeah, I'm whining. Because everything worthwhile has already been done. What is there left to do? On the brink of the singularity, why bother?
If the robots are taking our jobs, what point is there to try to be mediocre like all the rest? We have to be excellent to be even mildly successful. And things change so fast it's a wonder we even have institutions.
I have a career aspiration to be homeless, yet intelligent. LIving with a roof won't be exactly viable for me, once my parents die. I don't want to succeed.
I just want to play chess at my local library, read books, and laugh at all the people who are tricked into having shelter and food. I will die emaciated and with kidney problems. I want to live this dream.
