Hello would anyone be interested in lets say being in a chatroom where everyone is obliged to contribute something daily? It could be anything as long as it fits the spirit of wizchan and probably with a lower userbase of around 5-10 people?

Benefits of it would include being in contact with other wizards, copes, and security that you aren't in a room full of ghosts or controlled by some clique already.

A lot of people talk about 90s nostalgia but I never hear any for the 2000s. How did people feel about it? Better or worse than today?

I never watched it when I was a kid but in the last couple of years I watched the whole series for the first time. The first season was amazing to me, maybe because I hadn't watched it before but it still looked fresh and the production quality was high. The technology use wasn't obtrusive in the first place so the occasional shots of early 90s computers didn't detract, though maybe that's because they still have a certain charm to me anyway.
In my opinion it went to shit after they moved the filming from Canada to Los Angeles. I think this coincided with the main plot just kind of running out, but in particular the physical setting of the show no longer suited the show at all (too sunny and dry) and neither did it fit the supposed locations of the various episodes (episodes set in "west virginia" featuring eucalyptus forests and dry heath, and so on) other than those with a west coast setting.

>Can you give better reasoning besides just saying so?
Because lip service is still a sort of backing. I'm saying that even if it was only that, it would still be the backing of every corporation, the holders of true power. It doesn't go the other way. But, of course, I'm suggesting that it is more than lip service.

>How??

By spreading the narrative that fuels the BLM protests and funding it.

>>Police brutality is partly due to corporate meddling

>bla bla bla
What? I didn't say that. You're setting up strawmen. If you're going argue, quote what I actually said and explain your point, don't put your own arguments into my mouth.

>I agree that the capitalist system contributed to the creation of systematic racism and police brutality (because the purpose of governments has always been to protect the rich, not the people), but how do they benefit from it too?

I knew you'd make that argument but no, I'm not talking about that idea, which I in fact disagree. Capitalism is the great eraser of race, or any sort of collective identity that is not profitable to corporations. That is why corporations peddle internationalism and anti-racism, rather than nationalism and ethnocentrism. They are active proponents of a world that benefit their goals. Believing otherwise is naivety, and in fact it shows the mental gymnastics you have to go through to believe that at the same time we live in a fascist state controlled by corporations that can do as they please but also that corporations are always so powerless that they merely react in the most harmless way possible to the majority rather than actively deal with them. Our society is made of people who manufacture consent and support, and they are the powerful and the rich.

As for the advantages, there are innumerable material advantages. Like I said, there are billions donated or pledged, and they'll go to people and organizations who are interested in propagating this narrative. And that is direct money donation, the advantages that people received through other deals, or jobs and contracts that changed to more racially correct hands, or jobs positions like CDO (chief diversity officers) and many others that havePost too long.

(this isnt the same as insomnia this is a way to -naturally- reduce sleep need)
dr butekyo found certain conditions to reduce,naturally,sleep need,mainly nose-breathing+sleeping sitting.
other tips are a cold room, earthing,being actually tired,hard surface.(and a personal addition:melatonin)
if you practice breath retention/pranayama and sleep sitting on an armchair within some months you'll be sleeping 2 to 4.4 hours naturally. You will gain a lot of time alive to do stuff you enjoy

 No.249462

>>249455
I'd go with
1987-2001: Gradual collapse of communism and Gorbachev's opening of the Soviet Union meant there was no longer tension and pessimism. The trend of getting the government to back off and let culture bloom on its own expands, and there is general good outlook for the future of the West in general.
2002-2010: 9/11 (and earlier Columbine shooting) creates massive paranoia and need for government intervention in almost every sphere of society. More shootings/terrorist attacks happen. People grow accepting of having the government monitor every aspect of their lives. There is gradual massification of the internet and the first big social media websites are created. Economic crisis later on made things more grim.
2011-2020?: Establishment of social media, smartphones and political radicalization, I don't really think there is anything more defining, since politics has seeped into every aspect of everyone's lives and social media is deeply intertwined with it all. It's honestly hard to describe what happened, but I think social media is the culprit for most of it. All cluster-B divas have flocked there and the world now bends to their whims while they seek attention from others. It's almost like their mental illness has engulfed the entirety of society at this point. This decade has been fucking awful in my opinion, so I'm probably the worst person to try and pinpoint what was good about it.
2020-?: So much has happened and is yet to happen this year that it might be the beginning of something (probably something horrible), so we'll see. But I think it's safe to say more has happened now than in many years before, so it's very likely we'll face some sort of shift in mentality/behavior.

After the early 90s recession might be a better starting point. Media themes got more depressive around the same time, late 80s media still has that ostentatious 80s style and sounds.

I just want to warn people about claims like this. Sure, university can be expensive depending on where you live and how things are paid for (here in Australia, you get a very cheap, low\no interest government loan which you only have to pay back once you're earning an income where it won't impact you that much, and where the rate of repayment is kept low), and you could pick something you hate and regret it, etc. Lots of things to keep in mind… but from what I experienced in the workforce in the brief time I was in it, is that even if you have a generic arts degree practically any employer will give you preference over somebody who has NO degree - having no degree limits you a lot, especially above a basic level. You also now have HR goons involved in even relatively small businesses these days who'll automatically label you a low status male if you don't even have a basic degree. Suck that this is the system we're under, and there are obviously lots of exceptions, but keep what I've said in mind. Nothing is worse than working under someone YOUNGER than you, sometimes DUMBER than you, who just happens to have automatic status because they have a degree and you don't. That was soul-crushing, all because I listened to ideologues. I guess it might have worked out better if I was from the middle or upper-middle class and could fiddle around and find my way into starting a business or honing some unique skill, instead I was just fed into a system at the lowest level and deluded myself thinking I'd break out somehow without going to uni. Take into consideration many different points of view before you make a decision like that. Also, something is off about the guy who makes these videos.

 No.248011

>>248010

I wasn't trying to claim it's true in all cases, but what I saw was that many established businesses advertising jobs above a certain pay-grade expect someone to have a degree, and if you go for a job the easiest way for an employer to discriminate is simply "this one has a degree", they almost see it as a red-flag if you don't, and some of my extended family who were in positions of hiring people ended up confirming this at some point.

What type of work did you end up in? Do you work now? Did you save enough to live on? Those are important factors, for me… I was only ever capable of 'wage' sort of work, I wasn't going to be a tradie or anything like that, and I wanted more than to be earning an average wage, I wanted to break free of the debt-system. How did you find having one a hindrance? What was your degree in?

I tried uni and tafe at different stages and hated it myself, more because of social anxiety related issues, but the consequence of not having a degree or other meaningful qualification was that I ended up unable to get higher level roles.

You mean the country taken over by Karens/hr people to it's very core to the point where people have no liberties and the economy is on the brink of collapse since the populated areas seem infected with the same retardation that California has.

Also if you are going through a HR person to get hired you are already doing it wrong.
