    Default Existentialism: No News is Good News

    If a philosopher or author calls themselves an existentialist, I think that's when you run. Most religious people seem to love Kierkegaard and most atheists seem to love Sartre. I feel like I'm going to be booted from polite society for saying this, but I hate them both, and not even with any kind of passion. I like some people who get called existentialists, but not ones who called themselves that, for example: Camus, Beckett, Kafka, Nietzsche. Those people are talented writers, and I think ideological existentialists would be nowhere if not for saying "I'm just like Kafka!" (Ideological absurdism just comes off as an edgy way of discussing uncertainty and misunderstandings, and seems never to have considered itself the same as Sartre's ideological existentialism.) However, they all managed not to give into despair, much less to preach the despair, insanity, and confusion to others, which now affects the entire world we live in, especially the most parochial backwater regions, contrary to what many people may expect. Oh, and Heidegger somehow seems fine despite Sartre using his work as the basis of his own awful proselytizing.

    Your love is like bad faith
    Bad faith is what I need, whoa
    Shake it up just like bad faith
    There ain't no Sartre that can cure my thinking
    Bad faith
    I ain't got a fever, got a permanent disease
    And it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
    I got lots of money but it isn't what I need
    Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison out of me
    And I got all the symptoms count 'em one, two, three
    First you need (that's what you get for falling in love)
    Then you bleed (you get a little but it's never enough)
    And when you're on your knees (that's what you get for falling in love)
    Now, this boy's addicted 'cause your kiss is the drug, whoa
    Your love is like bad faith, bad faith is what I need, whoa
    Shake it up just like bad faith
    There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease
    Bad, bad faith
    I don't need no needle to be givin' me a thrill
    And I don't need no anesthesia or a nurse to bring a pill
    I got a dirty down addiction that doesn't leave a track
    I got a jones for your affection like a monkey on my back
    There ain't no paramedic gonna save this heart attack
    When you need (that's what you get for falling in love)
    Then you bleed (you get a little but it's never enough)
    And when you're on your knees (that's what you get for falling in love)
    Now, this boy's addicted 'cause your kiss is the drug, whoa
    Your love is like bad faith, bad faith is what I need, whoa
    Shake it up just like bad faith
    So let's play doctor, baby, cure my disease
    Bad, bad faith
    Is what I want
    Bad, bad faith
    Ow, it's what I need
    I need a respirator 'cause I'm running out of breath
    But you're an all night generator wrapped in stockings and a dress
    When you find your faith you take what you can get
    'Cause if there's something better, baby, well they haven't found it yet
    Whoa
    Your love is like bad faith, bad faith is what I need, whoa
    Shake it up just like bad faith
    There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease
    Your love, bad faith
    Bad faith is what I need, whoa
    Shake it up just like bad faith
    Your love's the potion that can cure my disease
    Bad, bad faith
    Is what I want
    Bad, bad faith
    Ooh baby, ooh baby
    Bad, bad faith (I gotta, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta)
    I gotta, I gotta
    I gotta do it again, wait a minute, wait a minute
    Hold on
    I'm not done
    One more time
    With feeling
    Come on
    Help me out now
    Your love is like bad faith
    Bad faith is what I need, whoa
    Shake it up just like bad faith
    You got the potion that can cure my disease
    Your love, bad faith
    Your kiss is what I need
    Your love, bad faith


    I'm going to properly finish this later, but "bad faith" just makes me feel edgy like "bad medicine" instead of encouraging me to become a good little existentialist.
