Since the dawn of life itself, greatness has risen, only for it to fall back into the dirt. When God birthed the universe, Eve ate from the tree of life and thrust humanity into a harsher world. When Egypt and Rome became bastions of civilized life, They succumbed to vice and stagnation, leading them down a path of ruin that proved irreparable. When the Chinese were the dominant world power, their people were reduced to opium addicts and their home relegated to a feudal backwater.
Even now, at a time greater than any other, greatness is destroyed. The most successful independent creator in the history of digital entertainment has been surpassed by a soulless corporation. The greatest livestreaming website has become an inconsistently-moderated cesspool, too big to fail. The most prolific innovators in the field that John F. Kennedy pushed us toward, that we abandoned after winning the Cold War, are dismissed and ridiculed by limp-wristed fools. We use the greatest accumulation of knowledge in history to trick each other and satisfy our own carnal urges. We surround ourselves with weakling after weakling in the vain hope that one day we will feel superior. We look in the mirror and hope to see a great person, but all we can see reflected is shame, cowardice, and a thin line of grease from the month-long binges of inconsequential filth. We are offered opportunity and we waste it. We are offered greatness, and we bring it to ruin.
Xenagogues across the ages have been ignored, their wisdom forgotten through the ages. The works of Ozymandias fall into disarray, time and time again.
Humanity has once again stumbled upon greatness, but this time, it is different. This time, the forces of corruption and decay are met with an unstoppable force of righteous innovation. This time, the human race will surpass its sin, its foolishness, its deceptive, duplicitous nature.
A new age awaits. A culmination of all that is good in this world now lays at our feet. A beacon shines once more. A light vanquishes the dark of night. It is here. Now, the human race has Vacwear. The human race has glory everlasting.
(For real, though, we’re two homies trying to make cool stuff. Buy something if you want.)
