simple answer is competition (synonymous with inequality): aka
the need to have extreme fun, consuming alcohol, cocaine,
"there are winners and there are losers". For example, envision
ecstasy, or other "party" drugs. This begs the simple question,

College culture has turned us into machines! Machines

Yup, thats what we're buying. We're buying the notion

So where is this leading us? I honestly don't know, it
from the drab of the American Dream. Instead of judging people

on every level of society. Instead of accepting boredom and
anxiety as a normal part of our lives, try asking yourself is there
an alternative?
