The Tao of Kanye West

Plato. Descartes. Locke. Marx. Nietzsche. Sartre. Yeezy. These are the names that come to mind when you mention the greatest philosophers of all-time. And for too long Kanye West had been depriving us of his deep thoughts about life, the universe and everything with an extended absence from social media. But he has returned, and in times of trouble, we can all once again look to Kanye West for moral guidance.

Observe how seemlessly Kanye’s tweets blend in with the greatest minds the human race has known.

I’ve got chills, honest to god chills.
