Leaning on the Everlasting Arm 

My last day in New York for a couple months. Finishing some papers in a school computer lab. I always get distracted and start reading other people's papers saved on the computer. Jesus, College kids are fucking illiterate.

For as long as the function of society has been inflicted upon human interaction, individuals have cohered to create standards of acceptance. While it is somewhat legitimate to say that these standards have been based on modes of survival, there is no question that since the beginning of the Industrial age, the criteria for determining what values are acceptable and what values are not, has digressed further away from what is necessary to survive. The emergence of capitalism in the 17th and 18th Centuries has transformed the reality of survival by fabricating what human beings need to survive. While this shift has influenced the social character of each society, there is a striking similarity between two major forces; one from an ancient culture and one from the modern state.

This from an essay comparing The Illiad to television. This moron goes to one of the most competitive schools in the fucking nation. So the 75% of you who don't get accepted must not know how to fucking read.

One thing I will not miss about New York is stupid rich kids.
