A beautiful quote from Hollywood to all you autistic apes. I love you guys!
„ r/wallstreetbets in Jan 2021 was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run . . . but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.
History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of ‚history‘ it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole ape-generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time—and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.
There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the DD, then up the Gain- or down Loss-Porn to Memes or DFV´s GME YOLO updates. . . . You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. . . .
And that, I think, was the handle—that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting—on our side or theirs. We had all the MOMENTUM; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. . . .
So now, less than five month later, you can go up the „Top Posts and click <all time>, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark—that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.”
This isn´t over yet.
It just got started!
