“Your relentless negativity is useless and exhausting, Jack!”, they say. “Be more positive! Pessimism and defeatism gets you nowhere!”, they say. Do they imagine I don’t know that? I also know that their idiotic and largely mindless positivity will have precisely the same effect, in the long run. “Positive” people are just a royal pain in the arse. Their coping mechanism is essentially to blinker themselves against reality. I used to deal with them by repeatedly whacking them over their sunny little skulls with a hardback copy of “Candide”, but now... eh, life’s too short, and so is my patience.
