Is anything really real?


 Is any of this real? Look at this. I mean really look at it.
 A world built on fantasies. Synthetic emotion in the form of pills. psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind altering chemicals in the form of food. Brainwashing seminars in the form of media. Controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks.
 Real? You wanna talk about reality? We haven't lived in anything close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, and snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding dumpster of the human conditions. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers. Jumping up and down on digital displays hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen.
 You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit. A kingdom we've lived in for far too long. So don't tell me about not being real. I'm no less real than the fucking beef patty on your Big Mac.
