Ignore the uploader, and focus on the 1st 3 minutes of the video.

The Roman poet Juvenal (circa 100 A.D.) wrote regarding the way latter-day Roman emperors retained power and control over the masses that were seemingly more than happy to obsess themselves with trivialities and self-indulgences while their once-great-and-powerful empire collapsed before their very eyes. He wrote:

“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions–everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”

We are the fattest, stupidest people ever to walk on the face of this Earth, and you know what? I see absolutely no change in site.

After all ,what are the mental preoccupations of the American populace? Those among the American Youth? Rubbish! Drivel! Prolefeed!

Our economy is on the brink of collapse. At this pace, In but 10 years-10 freaken years- we will be 20 trillion dollars in debt! The majority of our schools churn out nothing more than hollow purveyors of sophism and debauchery. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent covering personal lives of celebrities that provide little more than mild amusement. Where is the attention spent?

On Tom Brady's hair! Kim Kardashian's favorite perfume! Black Friday deals. Yes, how they can get the lowest possible price on an HDTV.

Whenever you get the time, go to Yahoo.com and look at the front page. View the headlines. So Carrie Prejean is pregnant. Remember Carrie Prejean? She was the Miss America that said she believed marriage should be between a man and a women about...2 years ago? This has a huge picture, along with a video at the front of a website that garners millions upon millions of eyes. Right below that, buried at the bottom of the page?

"North Korea threatens to retaliate for U.S intervention".

A few hours later? The Korean anecdote has disappeared, flushed down the memory hole.

But now you can view what Katy Perry wore to the Grammy's! OH NO SHE DIANT!~

A question for you: What would you do with out electricity? Seriously. Go turn off all appliances in your house and live in it for a week.

There is a substantial chance that this is how the destroyed middle class will live within a decade. I'm not going to turn this into a topic about neo tribalism, but just ask yourself this: How many people in this country do you believe would last more than 1 month under these conditions?

But hey! Harry Potter just came out! Did you see Taylor Lautner in Teen Vogue, that was some phat beefcake! We gonna be hella tight in cali this weekend!

Why are over 30 of the top 50 most watched videos on YouTube centered around brief spurts of nonsensical bullshit?

Bread and circuses, yes...bread and circuses for the masses!

Most people in this country are pacified by consumerism. All of this shameless conspicuous consumption has superseded the important issues of the world. Forgot the 2 minutes hate, it's now the two minute clip on TMZ!

Long live the American idiocracy!

Well,I actually agree with this,most of the "people" only care about nonsense shit like that Lady Gaga said this or that and that Miley or some other Disney star did this or that,when that stuff doesn't matter jackshit...

In here we have one hell of a problem,we have a debt percentage of 7%+,we can't find sugar fucking nowhere and we are on the verge of calling FMI. We also are sending troops to Afganistan to help you people out.

And what do the average person care about here? Oh Secret Story? That fucking reality show about a bunch of nobodies living together in a house for three months trying to figure out secrets from each other? Nice :gun:
