The Art of Not Giving a Fuck: A Title I Must Add To Since Others Have Been Here Before

avatar
(Edited)

Clearly I'm struggling with this and, so are you.  If the word 'fuck' in a headline was enough to turn you away, you've already failed at not giving a fuck.  I'm failing at not giving a fuck because I will give a fuck if nobody reads this due to the fuck they gave about the fuck off the start.  So what the fuck, when to fuck, and how to fuck?


NoNamesLeftToUse -SMART promo.png

I don't even know anymore.

Of course, this article isn't about some silly four letter word that starts with F.

It's about an act in between caring and not caring.  I care but I also care to not listen anymore.  I don't give a fuck.

My 'fuck' is my attention and my attention is not something I'll be ever so graciously handing out to just anyone who wants a piece of this action just because anymore. One must earn my fuck.

About a week ago, I wrote an article about news media cults, basically.

How it's all one unit, posing as two by design, in order to soak up as much money and attention as possible from every angle imaginable, all the while confusing the populace into taking sides on issues people would not have thought about had something not intervened, placing the thoughts directly inside minds.

Like, OMG!

It's the end of the world, according to both sides, but their side is safe and the other is doomed, according to themselves.  This is ridiculous.

That goes on for months then suddenly, all on the same day, both sides — the ones living high and mighty under corporate contracts and those posing as independent entities and the voice of the people — they all switch over to Afghanistan.


NoNamesLeftToUse - Wow cover.png

Wow.  "A coincidence."

Meanwhile news media junkies are already busy working as content distributors; sharing stories, memes, and headlines.  Modern day paperboys and town criers, volunteering to work for their manipulators, free of charge.

Or, they're confused, wondering what they're supposed to be thinking about now and how to fit in.  Luckily for those types, politics are applied so if they can't make up their minds, their team leaders have made up their minds for them, making the decision a no-brainer.

Why bother thinking when someone has already thought for you in advance.  Life couldn't be easier.

I'm... done.

I don't know what the hell is wrong with my brain.  Looking around the internet I see millions of people hooked on ideas they'd been fed.  Reacting to thoughts they didn't think about.  Munching down on it all, hard, but never filling up.

Problems that aren't even meant to be solved because if they were, these people would be out of a job.  Thinking the solution is leaving an opinion based comment that sounds almost identical to all the other opinion based comments that hardly get noticed.

Am I living in a goddamn simulation!

The gossip is so juicy people fear walking away from it.  "I might miss out and not know something..."

I often wonder and have even asked a few people:
What happens to these governments, corporations, and their minions posing as independent journalists on the 'other side', if people simply shut it off?

They lose control in an instant and become irrelevant.  But the people decide to give them the power by offering attention, then sit and complain about what they see while living a life of detention.

I don't see the point.

So I've decided to do makeup tutorials.

Before:

After!

Now

If the world wants to be all fucked up and ugly, at least I can feel cool and sexy about it.

Have a nice day.

But in all seriousness i get it. and its exhausting.

Thinking the solution is leaving an opinion based comment that sounds almost identical to all the other opinion-based comments that hardly get noticed.

ppl try so hard to get you to agree with them instead of letting you express your opinion. If you say why is it so important for me to agree with what you say. what happened to free minds? freedom of speech. we are individuals and not sheep.

But like them, everyone cant think like you. the sooner realised this the easier it become. i waste energy where the fight is worth it. If I see you don't want my opinion, I rather agree with you and validate your reasoning (if it's something minor, like yes that is a good looking car even though I think it's fugly AF) or keep quiet if it's something major. if my silence is questioned I communicate that you don't want my opinion you want me to agree with you and I'm not going to. Not everyone deserves your time and energy. You gotta pick your battles!

All one unit? Fucking hell, I didn't realize Rupert Murdoch owned everything already!

I got a touch of the déjà vu reading this, I've had several conversations along similar lines recently. People don't seem to want to think, would rather get their thoughts conveniently prepackaged for them. For the life of me I can't figure out why. The easy answer is to chalk it up to laziness but easy answers are suspect....

It's the elephant in the room making it impossible to address all the other issues facing us, but how do you address it?

On a somewhat related note, you might find bellingcat (link) interesting. It's more intel than 'news' but you can get info without all the propagandizing, hand wringing and pearls clutching.

Now where did I put my makeup, it's time for a tutorial...

Plenty of minds and businesses, all talking about the same thing, different ways. Not one owner. One unit. One structure. Not one mind. Taking the same topic and offering it to every possible market. Even that conspiracy crowd has it fed to them, thinking they have it all figured out, as if it's that easy.

I mean, it's larger than that, isn't it? Political dogmas, systems of government/societal structuring---the times and topics change but the operation is the same.

You might want to ask someone who gives a fuck. LOL

News media is about making money. That's all. Nothing more. Those 'choices' are an illusion. It's not about informing people or helping them. It's the same story told a different way, for money. Tell the same story enough different ways and everyone eventually hears what they want to hear, how they want to hear it, then they remain glued, then the story shifts to something else, as the attention is glued to the screen, never goes away. The stories don't change just because individuals feel differently about things.

Ever notice how in life most encounters with people you don't really know; they're often peaceful and cheery. You can say the stupidest things and people know to think you're messing around, first. Seems to be the reverse online. Say something ridiculous and people think you're actually stupid or being antisocial. Folks need to relax and stop giving a fuck so much. Stop trying to 'win' conversations... LOL!

Pretty much. I have a bad tendency in real world encounters to mistake those who are quite angry for people who are joking around. Laughing at them usually doesn't help things....

I'm not replying because I give a fuck. I'm only replying because you stated that you give a fuck that nobody gives a fuck about the fucks that you don't give.

However,

So what the fuck, when to fuck, and how to fuck?

This question is something that many of us give a fuck about. But as to my opinion of when to fuck and how to fuck, I am sure that noone gives a fuck, except for the lucky partner who is actually getting a fuck. That person is obviously giving a fuck while simultaneously getting a fuck.

I so want to learn this art. It really helps to ease out the stress level and helps to keep calm and composed. When we care too much about what others think and say, it's difficult to survive and live your life the way you want. So you are right, don't give a fuck and just do what you want to do.

Of course there's a glitch. They tried to make us an interdimensional species but only did a half assed job. So the aliens wanted to come and fix it but they can't now because people have runny noses and sore throats. Get one tiny glob of that stuff on an alien and they melt. Coughs sound like gunshots to them. They're fucking paranoid. So I came here in disguise to save the day but ended up running into you from that other place. Two worlds collide and nothing gets done. So I'm trying to outsmart your species by tricking you into thinking we've accomplished something. That way you'll fuck off and I can continue saving the world.

Well shit, dude. When they're paid in 'likes' and good job buttons, how can one not want to be a part of the machine. Plus let's not forget the dopamine hits. It's fashionable to be addicted that stuff.

That's why I call them the paperboys. And it's like people forgot how annoying it is to have someone constantly fill the mailbox with junk mail/flyers/pamphlets. Or I'll compare it to the random telemarketing calls. What makes people think their message is so damn important. And what makes them think others can't tell it's a script and they're just the mouthpiece.

It's not interesting when you know someone is just doing a job. But those people don't even realize they're at work. Not giving a fuck is the only thing left that can be done about this.

And you bring up an interesting point, indirectly. People you've known for decades even; you can see how all this nonsense is changing their personality. It's affecting people in a bad way, but they can't see it, plus they're surrounded by enablers. This is a problem. But WTF can be done...

I'm not okay. This stuff is permanent. It dried completely while I was thinking about something funny, so I smiled. Now I can't even remember what I'm smiling about and my cheeks hurt.

That really breaks my heart but I can't stop smiling about it.

I have been giving too many fucks in my life which is probably why I am now recovering from strokes.

I found out the hard way to stop giving fucks about things that you can't do fuck about. I know only look to give a fuck about my circle of influence, help others give fucks about theirs if they want to give a fuck, and if not then fuck them.

In the end it is liberating to not give a fuck!

Loved this and shared it out with some friends and relatives.

Yeah I can see how the added stress of giving a fuck about stuff well beyond any human's control will eventually cause health problems. These news products especially seem to offer humanity a sense of powerlessness disguised as knowledge. Pick up an interesting book and one usually comes out of that with more than they entered with. This news cycle shit just has folks chasing their tails.

It does feel good to not give a fuck. One can write their own story and it's usually a hundred times better than that shit smeared on a screen people are expected to consume. Solve the world problems, by shutting them off.

Wow! Someone got inside my head and made a map. But I wonder if they're still lost in there like I am... Hmmm?

The answer I keep coming back to is, I don't give a fuck.

And yeah just rub it in about having a name. It's not my fault you folks took them all. "First come first serve..." Whatever!

I'm ashamed to ask ... the English word "fuck" is translated into Russian in different versions. Google translator is clearly overheated. The range of values starts from hard sex to anal feces and some neutral options like "everything is bad."
I do not know which option is the most preferable in this unique case.
I certainly agree with one thing, this word as translated meanings should include the media ...

In this case, not giving a fuck means: I don't care.

I doubt the word 'fuck' translates well to any language and most learning English aren't trained how to use it. I won't even begin trying to explain it.
