Courtesy of reader El, here is a great article about the motivations of the perennially disaffected among us:
People who don’t want the dreary inconvenience of adult obligations can actively (if unconsciously) look for reasons to reject their society’s legitimacy, and so break from its associated responsibilities. All societies are unjust, so this isn’t a difficult task in principle – particularly in WEIRD societies that give their citizens a lot of personal freedom and latitude to question the rules.
This is one tiny quote. It’s a beautifully written, talented long piece. Please read and share.
