I love being Irish. What I hate is the yearly display of crying, arguing, and public drunkenness that goes with it.
PUNK AS PERMISSIBLE PERIOD OF TRANSGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR THAT LEADS TO UNIVERSITY AND ART OR LAW SCHOOL AND KILLS THOSE WHO CANNOT CONFORM AS BEAUTIFULLY REPRESENTED IN THIS NARRATIVE WHERE GUY ON RIGHT DIES BECAUSE HE CANNOT CONFORM AND GUY ON LEFT BECOMES A SUCCESSFUL MEMBER OF SOCIETY BECAUSE DADDY GOT CASH. SLC PUNK WINKS AT ITS CONFORMITY AND “PUNKS” ARE FORGIVEN FOR THEIRS. PUNK MAGIC.
“Student loans are destroying the imagination of youth. If there’s a way of a society committing mass suicide, what better way than to take all the youngest, most energetic, creative, joyous people in your society and saddle them with, like $50,000 of debt ..? There goes your music. There goes your culture. There goes everything new that would pop out. And in a way, this is what’s happened to our society. We’re a society that has lost any ability to incorporate the interesting, creative and eccentric people.” ~ David Graeber
