What's there to get about nihilism? It's pretty damn straight forward.
They are too dumb to see that rick is a miserable piece of shit.
His nihilistic philosophies cause a massive amount of devastation and suffering.
He thinks because there is an infinite amount of universes or timelines that it negates the individual value each one possesses.
It's like saying, "There's 7 billion people so this individual doesn't matter." Nihilism and Communism go hand in hand. Nihilism (like Communism) has no place in a civilized world.

I was about to ask that, too. Is it just because it's scifi? What is there to get? The jokes are hilarious but not often very complicated. Am I just not a genius?

I agree, I've found nihilism to be a pervasive and very disturbing aspect of people in my age group. (early 20s)

It's true that good or bad don't exist

There's no good or bad when two planets collide each others, or if an entire solar system gets sucked into a giant black hole

Where is the good or the bad there ? It just happens eventually, like storms and rain

There's no good or bad, from a "galactic" stand point

...

And that's precisely the fundamental error nihilists/absolute relativists commit, IMO

They reason at a scale/from a perspective which isn't theirs

Why not reason from a rock's perspective while we are a it

"Universal" ideologies tend to fall in that basket too, you can't please every1 and not everybody has the same ideals/objective, it's a waste of time to search for some sort of unified philosophy of all the things

Can try but at some point you'll get stuck

...

Civic nationalism also tries to accommodate everybody under the same banner in some way, but I digress

And it's ironic because Rick would give them a 20 minute rant about how their collectivism is just a way to feel good while at the same time satisfying their need for power, but that each of them who think they should run an economy by command could hardly run a single business, and that the truly intelligent build things instead of telling other people what to do. If you can't come up with a constructive way to change the world by adding to it, you maybe just aren't that smart.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

And this is why Millennials might be one of our last generations before we end up in the toilet as a nation. This fuckhead thinks a cartoon is 'intellectual'. I like the show, but I'm not some pathetic geek who identifies with it.

Smart is as smart does. If you are such a genius as you think you are, do something other than try to impress people on the internet. Go actually do something instead of LARPing someone intelligent and consequential from your mom's basement.

As is, we have a fugitive from the InCel colony on the loose I'm afraid. Someone tranq dart this derp and put him back where he belongs.

His/Her/Zir's post reads like the fucking Navy Seal copy pasta for rick and morty fags, though. This may just be an elaborate troll.

Its always fun to watch these people break down mentally infront of you. the "i thought i was right' look when they are exposed for knowing nothing is something that sustains me.

Rick C-137 is against all forms of politics to the point that he considers bureaucrats robots. He tells others to kill those robots because he doesn't respect them.

The only person who should wear a Rick and Morty outfit to a political event is a Pirate party member as a joke.

Nah. The writers / creator is a big fat jew. They just threw out the implication that rick is anti-semetic

God, its like a caricature. The distilled essence of "young male socialist."

I know what his fat "nerdy" girlfriend and his entire friend group look like without seeing them.

I can imagine their voices.

I know what all their inside jokes are.

I think these people may be made in factories.
