ceitagh BS: Do Americans know II (94* d) RE: BS: Do Americans know II 14 Apr 00

Whoa.....when I wasn't looking this turned into a thread about angst and the fate of the world! One of my favorite topics, actually, or at least it used to be.
I don't want to side with anybody, since I did my own "look how the world sucks, the youth are being screwed, etc." not that long ago...I went on a two week exposure tour to Mexico and came back a radical- since I'd been there, I felt I knew something about what was going on...then i realised everybody (from both sides) was feeding me a line and got angsty about that....then I got paranoid about the press and the absolute impossibility of anyone anywhere being impartial....then I woke up and realised I really can't know what is best for the world or do anything to save the world on a global level. I will never have enough trustworthy information. On the local level tho, there are a million things to do, starting with becoming the best person I can be, and doing what I can to be a positive influence on whoever I meet. This doesn't mean I wouldn't picket for a good cause, but it means it takes a lot more to convince me a cause is good.
Meebs wrote a good post above...he is obviously a little tired of the stuff he hears from his fellow students, and I can understand totally where he's coming from. And you're right about a lot of stuff, Mbo(IMHO). But give the angsty art students a chance...'cause some of them will have something really worth saying, however they choose to say it, and some of the slop on the walls will have come from a lot of thot and life experiences....but you can't tell 'til you ask. Personally I think pants hanging off someone's ass is unattractive and kinda dumb...but the statement made by a persons clothes doesn't always reflect accurately the human being within. I wore black from grade 8 to grade 11.

(btw...gotta love those americans...if it weren't for american tv, where would I see all those great canadian actors?)
