Do I really have anything to say that doesn't sound Cliche? No I do not. Blah blah, individuality, blah blah, I'm cool, blah blah etc. This is the internet. Nobody gives a single blue fuck.

I actually genuinely dislike Nickelback, though, but it's mostly because I dislike post-grunge in general. I outgrew it after middle school, and it didn't help that the local rock station I used to listen to played every song by every post-grunge artist into the ground.

I do see your point, however. A lot of people do hate Nickelback simply because it's the popular thing to do.

People hating Nickelback wasn't something that happened at random, someone throwing a dart at a wall of band names to decide who to hate on. They are just generally disliked, there'll always be a group of people who like them, but the fact remains is that they just don't appeal to the majority.

I respect that you like the band, but understand that the hate for them, for the most part anyway, comes with reason.

I for one can't stand the singer, who always does a raspy voice, like he's Christian Bale trying to be Batman, which makes what lyrics there are unbearable.

Still thumbing you up though.

See, I disagree with that statement. I appreciate the thumb, and one for you as well, but I would say they are much more liked than disliked. If not, why would they still sell millions of CDs and sell out concerts, and remain on top of not only rock community charts, but pop music as well?

It the same thing with people hating on Justin Bieber and One Direction. Aesthetically, they really aren't that bad. They're just this generation's britney spears and N'Sync. A few people who hate pop music started hating on them, and it turned into a shitstorn of people hating something they haven't even listened to. It's a groupthink type of situation. One individual can say they dislike something, and it means nothing. Say the same thing in a group, the group will either mindlessly disagree, or mindlessly agree. People are stupid.

So you're telling me 100% of all people who worked hard and aspired to something bigger then them self became successful?

Only 3% of children in the lowest rung of poverty make it to the top 10% of society. Working hard and believing you can become better isn't the only things that will make the American Dream come true.

You need a break, someone to give you an opportunity. Being good isn't enough, and for Eminem that was Dr. Dre. Another example is Micheal Oher who now plays OL for the Baltimore Ravens.

Being good isn't enough, you need to have the social capital to make it. The American Dream may happen, but it's NOT something that's always going to happen. In fact, very rarely does it happen and it's not done just from hard work and perseverance. It's just like how education is the great equalizer. No matter your background, going to school puts you on equal ground. Yeah, on paper these ideas look great, but in reality they aren't true.

Waiting for someone to give you an opportunity is lazy and stupid. If you refuse to look at the world with reason, and instead through a veil of self-entitlement, you will never aspire to anything in life. If you refuse to attempt to aspire to greatness, and instead wait for someone to cut down the taller stalks so your smaller stalk can feel sunlight, you are not embracing life. You are rejecting it.

Your life is yours and yours alone. Rise up and live it.

But for those 1% or even less of people who make it, there are 99% of people who have to live those shit lives in poverty for their whole life.

The American dream is a lie just to give people false hope that they can change social classes/
#61 - samjackal (10/04/2012) [-]
The 99% that don't make it didn't try hard enough. Nobody ever claimed that the American Dream was easy to achieve. The thing about being born into poverty is that you either accept your circumstances early on and never aspire to anything with any real effort, or you hate your circumstances so much that you work and work and don't let anything stop you from getting where you want to be. Not many people have it in them to do that.

I'm sorry, but you have to be truly ignorant to believe that if you work hard and aspire to something, there is a 100% chance, complete statistical certainty, that you will be successful in life.

Wrong. It isn't enough to just work hard. You have to work for something greater than what you are. You can't just sit and work your dead-end job and never aspire to something greater. I work in a kitchen now, but I'm not content to do that forever. In January, I'm enrolling in police academy to be a probation officer. I've already got the bachelor's degree I need. I plan to eventually be commissioner or at the very least, sheriff.

The American Dream requires that you WORK, and ASPIRE. Without aspiration and perspiration, you will remain poor. Eminem was a dishwasher 20 years ago. He wasn't ok with that. He made himself better.

Being Cynical is fine, being fucking ignorant is completely different. The american dream is very much alive. You just have to WORK FOR IT. It was never even implied that success was easy to achieve.
