The war on malaise

J.E. Dyer writes on Jimmy Carter and American malaise thirty years later. The following passage which struck me in particular. The comparison between pacifism and nihilism is obvious once it is pointed out.

Existential ambivalence is a parlor game; it doesn’t put food on the table or keep our property secure; it doesn’t do for us anything we actually need. The people who indulge in it do so at the sufferance of the others who don’t.
