What would it take to get you to rise up? -

Man, I see on Kiwifarms the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.

The liberator who destroys my property, is fighting to save my spirit. The teacher who clears all possessions from my path will set me free.

What's it gonna take Kiwis?

The idea that this generation is lost is pretty stupid in itself, given that we have more knowledge and access to information than any era in humanity ever before, so nothing could make me rise up.
Purpose and place is something you create for yourself, as all strong men did, or do you think John Lennon and Alexander the Great were waiting "for a purpose"? At the end of the day you have nobody to blame but yourself for not achieving the things you wanted to achieve.

Confidence that some movement of that sort would actually have enough people show up to have a fighting chance at succeeding.

Nihilism has only become the popular zeitgeist for the past 200 years stop whitewashing historical philosophy, OP is objectively correct.

What's the big deal? It's called a fetish!

I get rise up when I see a beautiful biological woman sensually strip down to her birthday suit, slowly slide into bed next to me, and...
Hold on, wut? "Wrong kind of rise up?" So what's OP talking about?
....oh.
Well this just got awkward.

What you're talking about is crass materialism, and of course it's not going to bring happiness. When Alexander the Great was forced to turn back because his army would go no further, he reportedly cried that night, saying "There are no more worlds left to conquer." You work until you own all you want, and then what? What's left for you?
But the solution is not to go all "Simplify, simplify." I've been to Walden, where Thoreau lived. He never "simplified" anything like he advocated; he was always within easy distance of his alcohol and cigarettes, and if he actually lived the "simple" life, it would end up like Into the Wild- Thoreau dying alone, hungry, and afraid.
You think there's no purpose in life? Give yourself a purpose. Be it religion, having a family, travelling the world- whatever. You don't need some abstract force like "history" to wander up to you and give you purpose. To believe so is narcissism in the extreme. Carpe Diem, anon! Seize the day! Or wake up one day an old fag, wondering where your life went.

Let me provide you a good reply, and my exact home and IP address, fellow FBI agent. Why don't we also talk about any potential militias we have joined recently?
