    1. From my perspective, he sounds very passionate indeed. He sounds like a man who perceived a future he could never be a part of.

    2. Academia suffers from the very same toxic individualism that it often argues against. The system and the content are incompatible. RIP Mark — I'm sure the structure and expectations in the lectures, papers and classes you were involved with only heightened the feeling of disconnection. You are — and will continue to be — greatly missed.

    3. This explanation is a pure projection of the negativity produced by his anxiety.

      People aren't parasites. He was ashamed of his own capacity for parasitism. I really think his inability to come to terms with his own lack of responsibility for the state of his mentality led to his suicide.

    4. 1:37 "We shouldn't be worrying about making money all [of the time]/ every waking our of our days… That's a depressing kind of reality that has been artificially imposed on us… and I mean we can break out of that."

    5. This is one of the most personally important video's i've ever watched. This man is changing my world view by putting to words what most of us have been feeling.

    6. R.I.P. Mark. The absurdity of modernity.. The alienation and existential torture of being a commodity in the marketplace. Don't think that useless cunt Corbyn will come to the rescue.

    7. If Mark should see the cyborgs they've employed in his place… Nobody's talking about the future now.
