“I don't drink water. Fish fuck in it.”

Hypocrisy is not a way of getting back to the moral high ground. Pretending you're moral, saying you're moral is not the same as acting morally.
“‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is expected to make over $425 million by Sunday. You can tell they’re making a lot of money because today Yoda endorsed the Republican tax plan.” — JIMMY FALLON

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there. It is hard for me to make sense on any given level. Myself is fabricated, an aberration. I am a noncontingent human being. My personality is sketchy and unformed, my heartlessness goes deep and is persistent. My conscience, my pity, my hopes disappeared a long time ago (probably at Harvard) if they ever did exist. There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it, I have now surpassed. I still, though, hold on to one single bleak truth: no one is safe, nothing is redeemed.
That's a trip, I came here to post a Patrick Bateman quote too! It's been forever, but I just watched that one again last night
"I have to return some video tapes." - Patrick Bateman

“Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.”

men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid
upon them by their governments.
