[Brief update][News] So much for heroism...


It´s all about money. Even the people who are playing 'heroes' on the big screen, are only in it for the money. Nothing new about it, but c´mon. 

And as the second link article points out:
It’s a shame that a franchise built around superheroes saving the planet is slightly clouded by the reality check of it really being about big business and the debate over who gets what from the billion dollar pie.
Took the words out of my mouth. 

Cheers to all.

  1. So, the problem is how many millions they can get for dressing up? half the world is starving,and I'm supposed to feel outrage at the evil corporation explotation of the 'poor' actors? Most of them couldn't get jobs at Walmart,suck it up and thank god Guys.

    1. Let alone the fact that they are already millionaires to begin with.

      Some people would give their kidneys to play superheroes on a screen. I´m not saying they should do it for free or anything... but c´mon.

      Thanks for your input, Dave

    2. You're welcome. I enjoy the blog. I was disgusted but not surprised,by how quickly people can feel 'entitled',when they're actually lucky to be successful,in a profession notoriously unrewarding for the vast majority. You won the lottery,but now you are pissed because you missed the Jackpot!

    3. I think it's kind of OK to feel entitled to more. Indeed, in our small antinatalist group, we are FAR from anything like as rich as these actors, but we still live a SPLENDID life compared to many others. (Even I'm surprised I'm saying it, but we do!)

      As the guy who used to write in "Ecclesiastes" blog once said, the only thing worse than not getting what you want -- is getting what you want. You need to have a full meal, a reasonable house, etc., to see how little they actually mean, and how short-lasting they are.

      But obviously, this feeling of entitlement should also admit that the beggar on the street is as much, if not much more, entitled to a home, and two meals a day. AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, that the beggar -- and everyone else -- is entitled to death. And that their potential children are entitled to not be born.

  2. Its always about the money. Humans are the only species that pays to live on this planet. And why the fuck do I even have to pay for a life I never asked for? Absurd.

  3. Makes me puke. We really need the Omega Bomb to put an end to this bullshit once and for all!

  4. I know you're just talking about movies here but thinking about superheroes gets me depressed. Our world is doomed, I feel it all the way down into my bones. It's been doomed from the start. I used to hope in a superhero Jesus Christ, I grew up believing he would save the world, he would heal our bodies, he would save the animals. I really believed that one day he would drop out of the sky and end this living horror show we're all trapped in. I no longer believe that anyone is capable of setting this world right and I just pray for it all to end. It's spiraling out of control. I am constantly weeping because of how this world is.
