"It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it." - George Carlin "Life Is Worth Losing" (2005)
In light of the political and economic circus we find ourselves in the midst of ad nauseum, I thought that this clip from George Carlin would help us understand what his point of view on all of this would have been.
If you haven’t seen this or any of George Carlin’s stand-up, you have to. Period. “Life is Worth Losing” is, in my opinion, the penultimate Carlin show, as it is most contemporary and relevant. If you travel back in time through the rest of Carlin’s 14 stand-up specials, you’ll see that the players have changed, but everything’s pretty much the same.
