it seems like a lot of people don't question authority, and when they do demand change it is to support our government and cultural values rather than oppose them. like all the black lives matter rioters, they weren't rebels or revolutionaries. the US stands for diversity and multiculturalism and equality for all, which is why they had the support of pretty much every major company. they did all that just to push us in a direction we were already headed. or they just did it to loot.

i feel like commies and nazis are the same way. like i used to be a NEETsoc when i was a teenager, but what really turned me off from it was it seemed like all the people that preached these kook ideologies all tried to promise their own version of the american dream. like under their ideology you would be successful with your work, be able to get a wife and have a family, and that under our ideology these prospects are obstructed. and i thought that was retarded because i dont want that shit. like it doesnt address the fatal flaw of government at all. mills makes a distinction between absolute government and absolute rulership. it seems like because we have a democracy, everybody thinks that we are "free" for some reason. but after the lockdowns last year, i never want to hear anybody say that shit again. like seriously fuck off. fascism and communism would just be the same thing except they stop pretending like we have a say in government.

i hate soceity like fundamentally. i dont think it can be reformed, i want it gone. rousseau says that government is slavery, and the common interest of society is carried out by making everyone a slave to everyone else. i think about this every time i am working a shit job for shit pay that i am actually just being a slave for my supervisor and for the stuck up consumers who buy our dogshit stuff. and you dont escape if you start your own business. you are just a slave to your creditors and your customers. i mean the whole point is to meet a demand. their demand.

i think it is a lot easier for people to never think about that because of how much more involved we are. most people are being bombarded with system affirming messages anywhere they are with phones, the internet, television. i read this book called manufacturing consent, and basically the whole point is that the media self censors itself to promote preserving the status quo to defend social hierarchies. it basically serves as a propoganda tool for the Post too long.

More like why do people care about politics when they have absolutely zero say in what will or won't happen? OP, you will never change anyone's opinions, you will never influence governmental decisions, you will never make an impact in any facet of your life, all of these things especially true if you are a wizard. Just forget about whatever bullshit you read on /pol/ and go play video games, because you are powerless, and so is everyone else.

Here's a good book on the esoteric reasoning behind the slave systems of society.

I was diagnosed at 9, and was a severe case until ~26.

All it really took was about 6 years of being constantly exposed to social situations, discussions, reading social cues, microexpressions etc.

It was torturous as hell. But on the other hand, at least I managed to prove myself the human brain is extremely malleable and prone to change.

Autism is not a disease like schizophrenia or cancer, it's a way your neurological pathways are arranged since birth.

I couldn't phone a pizza place let alone speak on the phone due to awkwardness just 6 years ago but now I can hold a public speech with coherence and not much care about what the audience thinks.

This is not a brag thread, but just some food for thought if anyone else here is non-NT. I've painstakingly reduced my autism level to ~0% despite being a diagnosed case at age 9.

I still don't really want succubi or a family (nor am I gay, thanks for asking) so that was never the point of this project.

But I was able to become ~99% NT with repeat intense social exposure.

I also failed a lot in the project and made hundreds of mistakes, and learned from them when people pointed out "that's not what normal people do" or "you shouldn't say that aloud" or "you shouldn't be doing that with your fingers" etc. the only reason it succeeded is because normies gave me tons of feedback.
It's surprisingly hard to become NT if you weren't born that way, though possible.

I think a lot about what the future will be like.

Feel like the future could be awesome with nuclear fusion giving everyone incredibly cheap energy for millions of years with no damage to the environment; automation increasing productivity, leading to universal basic income or everyone working fewer hours; life saving medicine extending life spans and fixing stuff like dementia and ageing.

Or it could be absolute shite. Environmental shit storm. Food shortages. Cold War with the USA and China. Increasingly authoritarian attitudes brought on by social media mutually policing everyone; more authoritarian politics.

What is the rise in trans-sexualism/transgenderism all about?
The push for it has been phenomenal. The whole thing seems to be completely fucking absurd; trans people have a huge variety of descriptions about what being trans means ranging from some kind of physical dysphoria (my penis should not be there; I should not have breasts) to having a personality/set of interests that are unusual for a man/succubus to some vague and nebulous feeling of being female.

Where the hell did this come from? Why do people take it seriously? Even if you accept the axioms that the advocates express then there are still so many contradictions.

I see myself as a bit of outsider observing society. So it's horrifying but also fascinating that so many people believe this stuff.

There was tooooons of gay emo porn in the 2000s, nothing has changed, there will always be gay twinks being gay in whatever way is currently popular.

Traps and emos are both subsets of twink. Gay emo porn usually featured a really feminine guy with long hair, no body hair, and girly accessories like jewelry or nail polish and sometimes even gothic-style lingerie, you would even find trap porn alongside emo porn in the early 2010s. I can't really speak for the very recent years since I havent watched porn since maybe 2015 or so but as far as I can tell they are pretty similar.

Anyone else notice that we seem to be stuck in a cultural malaise? Like the present doesn't give way to the future anymore? A permanent nostalgia trip for nostalgia? Gen Z being the most unoriginal generation yet?

I got some theories about this but it's all stuff from the "End of the Wizards" threads, I'll post them later but I want to know what other wizards think or their experience of this are.

A thread to discuss anything related to cryptocurrency.

I really feel it is 2013 all over again. Everyone was talking about crypto, online discussions were happening then it crashed. I rarely saw people talking about coins in between 2016-2019. Only around early 2020 the talk started to rise again.
In my 3rd worldshithole the local webpages are full of crypto discussions, I even seen billboards advertising crypto exchanges. I really reminded me of the late 2013 rally so I'm very very reluctant to invest one bit. But as other wizards pointed out, it is really difficult to know where the bottom is. >>269578

Even if I somehow mark the bottom with luck, it might take years to have another bear run, if such a run will happen at all. Suppose bitcoin goes down to 5k and will be 100k in about 5 years. I would need to put at least 15k and hope that there will be an extreme rally.
I don't know, I don't have the stomach to do it, my congratulations to anyone who constantly bought bitcoins around 2016-2018 when it was around 3-5k and then cashed out at 30-50k. I don't think such a rally will happen ever again, after this bulls crash.

this is why I can't get into crypto.

This was my biggest mistake. I knew about bitcoin since 2011 but everyone back then saw it as a payment system. I never met someone who thought it as an asset. It was not. It was just a mean of transaction and for 2012 to buy weed on silkroad.
That changed in 2013 imho and for the first time people started to treat it like an asset and I thought the exact same thing as you did. They have no value as asset, they are very prone to market manipulation, they have no inherit value and so on.
I underestimated peoples desire and how this might have blown off. I felt quite smug when I saw the 2013 crash and though no such bitcoin memery will happen again.

Shuckle the pokémon is based on barnacles. Goose barnacles.

Name origin
Shuckle may be a combination of shuck (a husk or pod) or shackle and barnacle or turtle.

Tsubotsubo may derive from 壷 tsubo (jar) and 富士壺 fujitsubo (barnacle).

It runs longer than 24 hours, so I’m always waking up and going to bed a little later at random hours of the day. I’ve lost arguably most of my jobs over this, and the only time I’ve had a normal schedule long-term was for a few years where I got a lot of exercise and took sleeping pills almost every night so that I could be at work on time.
I’m going back to sleeping pills now just because for whatever reason waking up later than 8 or 9 is heavily judged by normgroids. Also it kind of feels like shit and I’d rather be awake at normal times to try to start getting myself to go outside.

Do wizards have a conscious “balance” that they try to achieve from day to day? Or maybe a schedule? For me, I like to spread various activities throughout every day. I like to spend time using the internet, time playing games, time watching documentaries, and time studying my various things I’m interested in. I also have a schedule that I follow loosely that contains lower level things such as laundry, chores, and showering.

I am wondering does this kind of structured life style leads to more happiness in the long run for you, because for me it makes me feel very good to have my tasks lined out for me every day.

I've come to learn that people DON'T want experienced people for jobs like that. What they MEAN is, "We already have someone we want to hire, but we have to post a job ad for it to be compliant with labor laws, so we're using 'job experience' as a way to get around that law." 90% of the time when you see an entry level position with 10 years job experience, that's what's going on.
