Whatever that means to you, how does it help you?

Mosh, i agree to what you said. I guess i 'll have to remain this way for life. Rebellion makes me think beyond the external and i just don't enjoy that sense of profoundness anymore.The pragmatic approach to life has become more enlightening and even less burdensome. I still believe in consequences of guilt however but being practical and realistic is definitely more logical.

Rebellion - acting against the established social/moral order with the intent of bringing about some perceived positive change.

Probably.

Although today it means listening to whiny bands and grooming oneself for an hour in such a manner as to appear not to care about one's own appearance.
Also, having fruitless discussions over a cup of overpriced coffee for hours about the "plight of the working class" from which you are as detached as a penguin is from the risk of dying of sunstroke.

Postmodern times kick arse.

If you are a Zapatista, or other genuine rebel (of the armed and dangerous kind), I profoundly apologize for the above characterization and give you an unworthy "two thumbs up". Keep fighting the good fight, chaps.
