"Well, it's supposed to be upsetting, you moron! Check out the Declaration of Independence! You think it promises happiness? No no no, it talks about the "pursuit of happiness." The PURSUIT! We've become a nation of wimps! We think we're entitled to everything, we want to legislate ourselves into some cozy little cocoon. Well, forget it, Nature Boy. There are no guarantees. Life is nasty, broodish, and short. Ecce Homo."
