We're all monsters

so we dance

Foucault: You can't fight the system, not really. But you can carve out your own little space, and that's the closest we come to freedom.

Kant: There are two duties. To improve yourself, and to make other better able to improve themselves. Both are equally important. Being lucky enough to be white and middle class doesn't mean you're required to be miserable and hate your privilege 24-7. If you're going to stay sane, and do what little you can, you've got to try being happy once in a while.

Nietzsche: Life is shit. Unless you dance. Then the dance is life, and life, for that one little moment, is glorious. And that is the moment life is for.
