It’s hard to argue with the ages old philosophy of hedonism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedonism 

We are confronted on Earth with the reality that we are mortal. We inhabit a body of fragile flesh that will die. We live on a Prison Planet. We are surrounded by perpetual pain: death, taxes and with religious and scientific superstitions that ensure our perpetual stupidity.  The idea of “freedom” to which we feel entitled as a “natural right” of Caucasian Conquers of the “barbarians” of North America, Africa, the Middle East, etc., has been stolen from us by Rothschild Private Banks who own the private military / police force and politicians they control. We are the “peasants”.  We obey, we do the heavy lifting, we do the menial work, we pay taxes, we kill each other on battle fields of perpetual warfare, and we die a certain an eternal death.  As spiritual entities we have been given amnesia.  We do not remember Who We Really Are, or where we came from, or who brought us to this planet.  We are isolated and forgotten on a infinitesimally tiny speck of dust on the fringe of a remote galaxy.  We are lost….forever, and ever.  So, when faced the the brutal reality of our insignificantly abysmal existence, it seems that the only “logical” option is to “get drunk and screw and party till you die”.  (and start all over again when you are reincarnated as a “stinky baby”…..ad infinitum).
