    The "Storm Area 51 Facebook group" has become a breeding ground for a particular subgenre of sh*tposting: depression memes. In this Vlog, we argue that depression memes are the most modern development of a philosophical and psychological sentiment immortalized over 150 years ago in what is considered one of the first existentialist stories: Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella Notes From Underground.

    People choosing to be depressed. It’s funny because it’s actually true.

      Our world is in spiritual poverty, no one cares to plant a tree knowing they will never enjoy its shade, the very idea of doing something that would solely beneifit another is seen as a chore. We say life is too short Yolo and what ever else it takes to convince ourselves that its better to run around chasing abstract idea's, then to stop even for a few moments and really look around your self. Would you even recognize what you see or even understand how it came to be. For how is it in a time with more humans then ever, we find ourselves in shortage of humanity. What's truly absurd is we figured out how to destroy our planet before we figured out how to get along. The path forward is quite simple, understand and love each other or collectively perish, there is no complexity there.

                Please do try to storm Area 51. YouTube needs more new content of morons doing idiot's work to keep us entertained.

                  I mean. Why not. I think if enough people signed up and actually showed up, I guarantee we could get in. If they happen to fire on over 1 million people, well then we know they're hiding something huge! I mean that's literally all the evidence we need on aliens. A force keeping us from knowing the truth, at all costs.

                                  these people do know that if they train themselves to astral project they might be able to see inside area 51 in an out of body experience right (unless the gov or aliens have some sort of way to prevent it)?

                                    Yeah so about connecting to other people... I literally can't. I have one person in my life I've made a meaningful connection and she is the only reason I haven't become full on suicidal. I try to connect with people and just can't. I always end up repelling people no matter what I do. I feel like i don't have a personality that's compatible with society. Even worse, sometimes I worry that I don't even have a personality. Shit, I'm posting this on freaking YouTube because I have nowhere else to unload this garbage.

                                          hahaha it's called egalitarianism. It destroys men. Not only are men expendable in war, now they are expendable in relationships also. Depression memes are an expression of the deep malaise in denying the biological nature of reality. Men are better than women. #repealthenineteenth

                                          It’s pretty pathetic honestly. You’re physically capable people (and if not, you have the means to be) living in first world countries. If you’re depressed then go live in a third world country and see how good you’ve got it

                                            You definitely don't understand depression.

                                          I like depression memes because it's easier to laugh at my mental health than take the constant suicidal and self destructive thoughts seriously. I know I should be scared of the things my mind tells me, and what I've done to my body, but if I accept that fear, then life will become truly unbearable.

The separation in that one action, can be the basis for some of the disconnect that others may feel. While you and your friends are discussing the attributes and habits of those "beneath" you.........we are living it. I don't agree with shit posting and actually take part in spreading a more positive message, when I encounter said individual. I'm glad I found this video and will give this channel another shot.
