18 Illustrated Proof That Our Society Is Failing

Guess what? Society sucks. No seriously, I know we’ve heard it said over and over for a few years now, but come on. Modern society stands at the brink of an abyss, and seem to be okay with it. The lighting there is great for selfies, it seems. We’re all getting really tired of being told that we suck, but that’s not what we’re trying to do here.

We all have to do our part, and in a way, these artists have done theirs. Every day, there are people trying to pull society away from the abyss. They’re trying their best. This isn’t a rant, this is trying to get you to become one of those people.
