I've got all these great ideas for insightful pieces, but I just can't bring myself to write them. Young people have a mind of their own, albeit obscured by internet pornography and the music of Katy Perry and Pitbull. Bring on virtual reality!
I'm still trying to figure out what might even be vaguely viable.
I'm going to make a bold statement of Zero Hedge, and claim that a majority of the content on this website is merely a regurgitation or manifestation of a previous article or Zero Hedge idea.
To all the new people, this may seem insightful and radically different to anything else they've experienced in their life.
But after a couple of months, you kinda realise that it's all the same shit repackaged into a 'whole new revelation.'
Listen Mr. ZH! I get it, the government is trying to take away my rights. No really, I get it. But do I really need to read about it every day, just in some other slight variation?
Once you understand the basic premise of collapse, you realise how pointless this website is. A chart depicting America's demise is great and all, but it's to be expected, thus redundant.
Thus, the issue of Zero Hedge lies not within it's content as a news outlet, rather it's biased angle. Get rid of the analytical bias and you fix the problem. The issue with this, is that Zero Hedge would no longer be Zero Hedge and people wouldn't read it.
Of course, this website caters to a specific reader. Clearly not myself, despite the fact that I do I podcast on it. I'd argue I do it for the comedy and the media, my two other passions.
It's great to bicker over how much you hate and feel over a current reigme through this outlet, but informing and influence aside, serves very little purpose to the average reader.
Insight is only relevant if you're ignorant. If you don't get it by now from all these uncanny guest posts from people who write the same crap every week, then you're effectively a moron.
Interesting, none-the-less. Our burning desire to learn.
My two cents.
This is the Zero Hedge Daily Round Up.
