Could be worse...
Don't let this game bother you.
I'm a 33 year old virgin, I got the crap kicked out of me in school so bad I was afraid of everyone, I rushed my GED just to get out of that hellhole. I saw my grandma die in front of me and couldn't do anything, I lost my only 2 friends to drug abuse.

And I'm ♥♥♥♥ing lucky compared to the jews in the holocaust... Or some arabian adultress. Way worse things can happen in life than some depressing screen text.

Its true tho, all i've seen my whole life are spoiled rotten millenials and genxers whining about how hard they got it.
As if soviet russia wasn't hard, as if the holocaust wasn't hard, as if somolia and starving in flys isn't hard...

People need to wake up and realize what real suffering actually is.
False equivalency doesn't help your outlook. Flip this logic on its head and apply it to happiness. Can no one in Soviet Russia be happy or have a happy life simply because someone in the US is driving a Lamborghini? No. Sadness, like happiness (when not caused by a chemical problem) comes from within.

Like those idiots who cleaned their plates because people in Africa were starving, denying yourself the right to experience your feelings simply because someone else might have it worse is absolutely asinine.

If you truly experienced something horrible, you deserve the right to grive that loss or mourn those friends. Just because other people are also suffering in different ways shouldn't deny you the right.

I also want to point out that if you're 33... you're a millennial.

We all suffer tho, even people with great lives suffer something.
Why even worry about it? Look at who's in charge, look at the nazi resurgance, hates at an all time high everywhere, soon the pacific might be radiated...

Its only gonna get worse for all of humanity, fascists have won, WW2 was a waste of time.

Evil only wins when good men do nothing.

So the US is no longer a global player and we're not the top of the food chain. That's not the end of the world. It's the end of one regime. More will rise and fall. History will continue. It always does.

It's true, you can cripple yourself by fearing problems that you can't solve. I can't solve them either. But, I can do things to make the world better. I can help my friends and neighbors when they need me, and I can be the person I'd like others to be. That's all I can do. It's the only thing within my power.

I'm not happy with the world or the way things are, but those things can, will, and do change.

Yeah, it sucks. It's not the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything - that's 42. It's not easy. It's hard. It's hard to look at social injustice and say "I don't like this, but I can't enact any change on my own - all I can do is be the person I want to be."
Its not about US tho, ♥♥♥♥ the US, we killed an estimated 200mil native americans, worst genocide in history easily. We deserve what we're getting, the sad thing is the thing we're doing to ideals. Not just us tho... Chernobyl, fukoshima, north korea. We're either gonna burn in a nuclear oven, or a solar one from global warming, or both.

But that's all just fake news.

What ideals? Most people are still good. We have corruption in the ranks of leaders, but even they're doing their best (usually). Trying to manage global conflict or even nuclear proliferation from your living room sofa is impossible, though.
What the ♥♥♥♥ did any of this have to do with this game?

What ideals? Guess we're not paying attention to anarchy, nihlism, nazism, fascism, communism... None of those exist, outside leaders?
None of those ♥♥♥♥ing ideals are good and yet they are pushed by people constantly, because the simple basis of those ideas is an excuse to do whatever the ♥♥♥♥ they want to people.
