All that is needed for emo to triumph is that good men do nothing.

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;
“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

—Stephen Crane
from The Black Riders and Other Lines

    good stuff.
