|Does anyone else just find capitalism in general massively depressing?|
by callis at 09:26 22 Oct 2019
At first having a good job was nice, disposable income after years of cr@p jobs. But 8 years of it, watching incompetent people with capital get rich off building teams of skilled people and then flogging it to an early retirement, realising you're just a pawn in a system that rewards privilege more than hard work, dealing with people who think life is nothing but the numbers on an ATM screen and define self worth/motivation. It's really starting to drain me on the inside. The stress and internal office politics on top of that also.
I've always judged life by how happy I am rather than what's in my pocket. I'm doing better financially than ever and honestly I don't think I've ever felt so jaded, miserable and defeated by life. Like I'm trotting along on a train where I don't fit in and heading somewhere I'm really MEH about getting there.
Am I alone in thinking this? I feel like a lot of my close friends align but a lot of them are hippies and punks who are fairly fulfilled in live living the minimalist way with a socialist outlook and rejecting social norms. But is this something the wider world of "normies" also suffer from?

Just a point I would like to raise from the Accrington match.
Whilst watching the team get off the bus. There were 4 guys , aged around 28ish going on 14, who were in Town shirts etc, who were constantly taking the Michael out of other Town fans. Their approach was to stand there and use The Inbetweeners "friends" tone and make comment on the other fans because they were watching the lads get off the bus. Here is my points to those rude and ignorant fans:
1) For some people in this world at the moment it is not great, seeing the players in a real boost for them (also younger kids were watching, which should always be encouraged). These people for all they or I know maybe ill, suffering from grief or simply could be the first time they have seen players so close up. It is important to them and could give the fans a mental boost for reasons we do not know. This is coming from someone who has suffered from depression in the past and my now wife took me to watch Town at Bolton when Chopra scored last minute and it really gave me that boost.
2) They are Town fans who are likely to have spent hours and money getting there, which should always be respected. Why be like this with other Town fans?
3) The Inbetweeners joke is 10 years old, I do hope for their families, friends and partners they do not do this stale joke all the time.
4) If they were that offended then why bother still standing there watching the players get off?
I just thought it was so poor.
|Our next two games are must win games for PL sake?|

Our home game with Rotherham on Wednesday and away game at Southend on Saturday are must win games for the Town, and the tactical ability of PL.
The side and formation picked against Accrington on Sunday was an accident waiting to happen, far too lightweight, and this is not an after thought.
We must play two up front, with an old fashioned 4-4-2 being our most successful formation this year. When we play this our full backs attack and the opposition crack.
