So I started watching a new show last week called Mr Robot. I am hoping many of you have seen it since it is already past the second season and if you have I would love to get your thoughts on the below scene. If you have not seen the series no worries, there are not any spoilers here. Feel free to watch the clip and let me know your thoughts as well.

I haven’t been able to decide what I think of this scene. What I think is being said is once you truly hate yourself you no longer care what happens to you, what other people think of you, or really much of anything. I suppose that is a form of freedom and is the power the man is referring to in the clip. Once you no longer care about anything you are free to do anything because the consequences do not matter to you…

This is as far as I can go with that line of thought because I always come back to the idea that hating yourself is the strongest form of unhappiness. I have always believed the strongest forms of depression, misery, and sadness at their core all stem from disliking and even hating who you are as a person. So I cannot imagine anyone wanting to embrace such a level of hate, I cannot fathom not wanting to escape such a pit of misery so I cannot see how it is a lasting source of power…

What are your thoughts? What lesson or concept do you think the show is trying to teach with this scene?
