    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.

I was actually raised by the promises by the mentality of the 90s and by the moral messages of Disney and Nicelodeon movies and cartoons that if I talk, act, treat and decide honestly, respectfully and responsibly to others, then I will have friendship, love, family, success and most importantly just almost no stress and worries in my life. This kind of education was so strong and convincing that I cannot get rid off yet. But it made for a long time and still makes me depressed, as in this society it never worked and will never work neighter to me nor to anyone else.

"millennials and gen Zers have grown up with the promise of a better future" YOU are the future though, gotta get past those "failed parenting techniques" and false participation medal confidence and make that impact. its not gonna happen 6 months into an internship, its gonna happen with work. The world is depressing and abysmal? CHANGE it. Make the difference thats needed. Shit posting depression while simply being along for the ride cause "meh, the worlds already trash" wont fix anything, itll just pass along the shitty world to the next generations like the current world inherited from our grandparents. The first step is the hardest one, but nothing is gonna change without making it. memes certainly aren't changing anything, other than perpetuating the idea that its okay to just be depressed, do nothing and watch it all burn because "theres nothing we can do". as soon as people give up and join that bandwagon then there is nothing they can do. The world is clearly waiting for people to step up and start making changes, BE those people, RISE UP and make the impact, CHANGE how the world works for the better.

Whenever you imagine or get close to dying, you feel this fire in yourself, the zeal for life. You look in the mirror, and you see a force of nature. A courageous warrior fighting for life. 'You've got so much to live for!' 'You can really change the world!' But as soon as you embrace life, it's as if the mirror flips. You see a parasite who feeds off the pain of others. You see someone who is unlovable, and unable to love. 'Nobody will _really_ care if you die.' 'You'll never achieve anything of worth.' So, there is an unresolvable dichotomy lying under your whole life. To be or not to be? That is the question... But since living is the default setting, and you aren't _really_ depressed (right?), you'll just keep on living. And nobody will ever know that anything was ever wrong. Oh, did I say 'you'? Damn autocorrect...

Just read Crime and Punishment, wasn't sure which of Dostoevsky's to read next but now I'm captivated by Notes from Underground, so I think that'll be next. This video got it bang on. So many people at my school go on and on with depression jokes and memes (including me), and whether we notice it or not, this obsession over dark and suicidal jokes seems to me like a cry for help. It doesn't necessarily mean we're clinically depressed... but maybe just lonely. I know that's not uncommon for teenagers these days.

Some people think that they have the right to happiness, but what people have the actual right to is the pursuit of happiness. It means that you have to pursue happiness to get it. It also means that unfortunately some people don't get to be happy even though they tried. Some people blame themselves for their lack of happiness. Some people blames others for their lack of happiness, hence incel, misogyny, misandry and racism. Some people blames society for their lack of happiness, hence the depression.

WUB A LUB A DUB DUB! What would be funny would be if the idiots storm Area 51, and the guards and scientists there have spent the advance warning time to build a fake UFO in Hangar 18 with a lemonade stand manned by actors in alien suits. Anything really secret will have been removed from the facility decades ago when it became a household name.

It seems like the modern trend on anything is just to whine about it and despair about the sorry state of their own existence (because God forbid they appreciate all of the incredible modern amenities that literally no other generation in human history would've had the luxury of appreciating). Just as there are two sides to every coin, there are two ways (or many, many more) to look at any given situation or circumstance. There is the "popular" way of looking at the modern world in the form of late-stage capitalism where "you are a cog in the machine that has no meaning whatsoever...and then you die" kind of outlook that fuels this "Storm Area 51" bullshit. But there is in equal measure (or at least there ought to be) another message that says that we decide the meaning in our otherwise meaningless existence. Anyone who even jokes about storming Area 51 has clearly surrendered to the inherent meaninglessness of the world and of their very existence, which I find pathetic. True, life is inherently devoid of meaning; and yes, it is true that we are all one day destined to die; but if I, like every one of us, am to eventually be as a cow to slaughter, I will go as the finest kobe beef: appreciative of the journey I have traveled, the luxuries I have enjoyed, and will spread my good tidings unto the future that they may positively enjoy the bounties of the very fact that I existed in the first place. The future stands upon the shoulders of the present, and if the shoulders of the present should falter, what then? … Food for thought.
