Why is no one talking about the speech Hugh Laurie made in tomorrowland, it’s so true and it’s kinda scary.

‘The only facts the won’t challenge are the ones that keep the wheels greased and the dollars rolling in.’

‘How do you think people responded to the prospect of inmate doom, they gobbled it up, like a chocolate eclair, they didn’t fear their demise, they repackaged it, it can be enjoyed as video games, as TV shows, books, movies, the entire world wholeheartedly embrace the apocalypse, and sprinted towards it with gleeful abandon..

Meanwhile your earth was crumbling all around you, you’ve got simultaneous epidemics of obesity and starvation, bees and butterfly’s start to disappear, the glaciers melt, algae blooms..

All around you the coal mine canaries are dropping dead and you won’t take the hint. In every moment there is a possibility of a better future, but you people won’t believe it, and because you don’t believe it you won’t do what is necessary to make it a reality. So you dwell of this terrible future and you resign yourselves to it for one reason, because THAT future doesn’t ask anything off you TODAY. Yes, you saw the ice burg on the titanic, but you will just steer for it anyway, full steam ahead. Why? Because you want to sink. You have given up.’

Some deep shit right there.
