That’s because it IS common sense. Tumblr is full of a bunch of young people who constantly need to fight a battle.
YES! As cliche as it may seem to use it as a reference, “Fight Club” touched on a important idea that as of these last few 100 or so years, generations have had no “right of passage”. As we move from our teens into the young adult era, there’s so much violent and potent fuel that needs burning, but has no functional outlet. We have nothing new that is worthwhile to fight and stand for, so we cling on to old wounds and wear them like martyr brands.
So it seems our new coping skill is to gather scraps of selective knowledge and erect a highly impractical and opinionated wall of Jericho around… whatever. I lost my steam. Whoops. Words.
