There’s been a lot of back on forth lately (mostly forth) about some really outrageous things in the news. You may have been tempted by the delicious aroma of moral superiority. You may have even taken a bite. I’m sure it tasted oh-so-good, but I have a question for you.
Do you even know where your outrage was manufactured?
Most people assume that because they are personally having the outrage, it’s locally sourced. But how do you know your outrage is wholesome organic outrage, not some pre-packaged, processed frankenfit? For all you know, Big Aggro is importing your outrage from an overseas factory server farm! They aren’t even required to label it!
Manufactured outrage is full of toxins that slowly poison you from the inside out. These toxins may make your outrage look better, or feel better, but they’ve been proven to cause tight sphincters, jerking knees, and hurting butts. Did you know that compounded outrage is addictive, just like heroin? It’s no mistake that they call it website “hits.”
The healthiest course of action is probably to avoid outrage altogether. It’s not necessary to anyone’s well-being, and the risks of it being a processed, additive-laden nightmare are high. If you just can’t go without a little outrage in your life, though, here’s an alternative to supporting Big Aggro:
Be outraged about things within a 25 mile radius of yourself.
Support local outrage, and know that your outrage is genuine, organic outrage grown right in your backyard.
