“A life that partakes even a little of friendship, love, irony, humor, parenthood, literature, and music, and the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of others cannot be called ‘meaningless’ except if the person living it is also an existentialist and elects to call it so.” -C. Hitchens

Hitchens was not a nihilist, although he did enjoy making fun of people who asked him what the Meaning of Life was if there was no God.

he also enjoyed drinking himself to death.

also if "the chance to take part in battles for the liberation of others" is an integral part of your life's purpose, it seems to necessitate there always being an ever-refracting "oppression" to liberate others from. Christopher Hitchens, the proto-SJW.

Nothing wrong with that.

It's one of many options. Not an integral part.

So you wouldn't call the destruction of free speech, the reduction of male rights, and the removal of fire arms from the possession of the general public to be "oppressive" behavior?

Atheism demands nihilism, there's no avoiding it's icey grip. Most realize this reality by adulthood, youll get there one day if you haven't suicided by then.

the rejection of all religious and moral principles, often in the belief that life is meaningless.

The man believed in morality and meaning. A self-proginating, foreskin-demanding sky-wizard is not the only reason people might believe in those things.

Even if that were true, it's no excuse to lie about the nature of reality and pretend that a book handed down from goat fucking imbreds is the greatest thing ever. No?

That's just fucking ignorant; no it doesn't and only an ignorant fool would think so.
