Written confessionals making excuses for yourself (Silverlake)

compensation: Please send a couple examples and if I think your voice is unique enough for the project, I will pay $1 per excuse.

For a college video project I am looking for written confessionals from many individuals: people who do things they know is wrong but they do them anyway.

Example: People who...
...Think Amazon is a bad company for its work practices but make excuses for using it anyway.
...Drive a car even though it would be better for the environment to ride a bicycle or take public transportation.
...Eat meat even though the meat industry leaves the largest carbon footprint, increasing the climate crisis.
...Justify any other behavior that has real world consequences. Anything else you can think of along these lines.

Looking for things that you yourself might do or things you hear other people say.

These excuses and justifications are for a video poem for possible museum exhibition. I want to draw serious attention to the "I know it's bad, but..." narratives that we culturally condition ourselves to. If you think this is an interesting project and would like to be a part of it, please let me know! I can send you a finished copy, of course, and credit you (if you want that).
