I'm about to read The Stranger for the first time. Anything I should know before hand, or should I dive right in?

It's time to take the /Camus pill/ and realize that "scientific socialism" is crap and that authentic rebellion is the only solution.

Is Camus the worst popular philosopher ever?

His argument for absurdity is "you are impermanent you will be forgotten so it doesn't even matter the universe is big and the stars don't care about you". He's basically a nihilist, but he's too stupid to realize living a life conscious of the absurd is in no way better than living a life where you believe in God or morality, because nothing is better than anything else within his framework. He values courage and defiance for no reason, and he despises leaps of faith for no reason.

It's basically nihilism with a "fuck you" attitude towards fate that he predicates on trying to sound cool. In fact, his only goal is trying to sound cool, and he writes by stringing together a bunch of aphorisms that are individually quotable but don't amount to much. And yet he's popular here and he's taught in Philosophy classes.

Why? How did this fraud go viral?

They say that man ain't meant to fly,
But I'm reaching up for the sky,
You know, You know
They can't hold me down

Da, da, da, da, da,
Da, da, da, da, da,
Da, da, da, da, da,

Mountains in my way, I can't lie,
At times they seem too high,
But I just climb

Yeah yeah yeah

I love you. I have been looking for a better conception of the absurd the second I finished myth of sisyphus. Although i liked the book quite a bit, I had disagreements with it and was looking for more literature on it. My primary disagreements with camus stem from how his deductions from the absurd, the following consequences:
1. revolt
2. freedom
3. passion
