"Everything is broken. Everything. Good people are victims. Bad people are heroes. Dumb is a virtue. Food is poison. Corruption is a national past time. Rapists rape. The poor are left to rot. Religion is business. No one is safe and everyone thinks it’s funny.
Why is the world allowed to be this way. Why doesn’t anyone do anything? Why don’t we fight back? Why is it like this? And then it hit me. It doesn’t matter why. ‘Why' is the bullshit. 'Why' makes you feel better for just thinking the question. The question is… What am I going to do about it?”
From Scarlet, book 1 by B.M. Bendis & Alex Maleev, this quote is just one of many thought-provoking lines in the most blatantly subversive works of art I have ever read. Foregoing the nuances, the subject matter really resonates in today’s world, what with all the “Occupy _______” movements, issues with authority, and the general hopeless of a post-modern society. Definitely recommend reading this!
