whenever i complain about things being shit im always told to just work harder bro and that my mistakes are my fault and that successful people have to work for it. but in saying this they are inadvertently betraying their Darwinist stance towards successful people and towards the system itself. why should priority be given to them? why am i just supposed to pretend like everybody isnt getting massively screwed over?

Because most people are stupid and/or have no sense of right and wrong. They believe that they have to compete with each other always in order to justify their mediocre existence. They don't care about helping others and reducing the suffering in the world because capitalism. The poor people or people who don't want to play the game like them deserve to suffer - at least according to their wicked minds.

Sorry to post this here but I don't know where else to post this and I don't want to derail any other threads. Hide the thread if this topic bothers you.

My sister is pregnant with a boy and is due in a month. When she found out it's going to be a boy I asked if she was going to circumcise and she said yes. I tried to convince her not to but she accused me of trying to "red pill" her even though I'm not even "red pilled" or anything I'm mostly apolitical. I asked her to watch american circumcision and tried explaining why circumcision is bad but she just told me to mind my business.
I don't know what to do. Normally I don't care about others but this is my nephew we're talking about. I tried talking to my father-in-law and he was more understanding but just said the decision is up to my sister and ended the conversation. Anyone have any advice? I really want to protect my future nephew from being needlessly mutilated but I feel so powerless.

This is more of political question. I mean how did circumcision really even start? How the fuck do you convince people to start cutting of a working part of a babys body for absolutely no gain?

On the other hand, I do not consider it a big loss. I had a surgery to fix curved penis (congenital) and My foreskin got infected after it, and after a short saga I had to be circumcised. I dont consider it a big loss. I can still cum fine.

Americans understandably tend to make the myth of an uncut dick a bigger deal than it is. Most people never had a say so they lash out.

Anyway, succubi will do what the majority do. Always

It started as a Jewish practice from the Old Testament. Some catholic sects also decided to do it. The way it started in America was Kellogg promoted it as a way to prevent children from masturbating. And since then it has been common practice due to a combination of tradition, various myths and stigmas about it, and a large allowing of Jewish doctors in the United States who promote it.

And before someone jumps down my throat about all the Jew stuff, no I’m not some /pol/fag, it’s just a literally Jewish practice.

I have this irrational (?) fear that I'm going to end up in prison, basically by accident, honest mistake, or some DA or cop trying to fill a quota. When I look at the incarceration rate of the U.S., I don't think, "Look at all those criminals." I'd maybe think that if the rate wasn't the highest in the world. Instead I think, "That's so high it's basically a matter of random chance that I haven't gone to prison yet." I mean, you're basically rolling a percentile dice every year to see if you end up in jail. Whenever I make some minor mistake (forgetting to pay a fee), my paranoid brain just immediately jumps into "I'mma go to jail now" mode, I hate it.

You think a couple affirmative action hires and some shitty cheap housing is being pro-nigger? They just made that to further the narrative that Black people rely on the white man for sustenance, to keep them dependent on the system instead of having any real power in this country.

Let it first be understood that I am 34 and that yes, I am prone to nostalgia because everything is shit now. I am one of those "kids" and I'm not criticizing an unknown quantity but even myself, and even if this sounds cruel I think it is necessary. Also, this isn't directed against James himself since out of all the e-celebs, new and old, and all the youtubers out there I genuinely believe he's the only one who is genuine and never fucked up with meaningless drama, scandals, shooting cadavers in foreign countries and so on. Mike doesn't factor in on this.

I think it's really over. AVGN is dead. Nostalgia for the 90s as a whole has been run into the ground, exploited to shit and back, monetized, rebooted endlessly, vulgarized and defiled, and now all that's left is sadness and human failure. Remember those obese, bearded manchildren in Rental Reviews? It was at that point that I realized a few things which I found important and damning. I could no longer ignore them. I am not American, and to me the 90s aren't the MEDIA of the 90s but the ability to have genuine connections with people, friendships, an actual culture, meaning and purpose. To the vast majority of people however the 90s are just a series of consumer products, Hollywood garbage, plastic shit and video games. To me the 90s are me and my friends playing hide and seek, going to the beach at summer and running around in Roman and Medieval ruins with a ball and a smile. To me the 90s are my friends, the golden sun, warmth of other people - to Americans it's the glow of the TV.

I realized that there is a dissonance, a profound difference. And as I watched this endless parade of failures-to-launch, people who are utterly addicted to and nostalgic for consumer products and haven't moved an inch since then I realized I have nothing in common with them. Gradually, I began to loath them. And pity them. But mostly loathe them. I realized that we were never the same, that we have nothing in common, that even back then I wouldn't have liked them.

James Rolf, as a progenitor of a genre has run his course. There is something utterly depressing about him shilling for wallets in his videos. He and others like him are stuck doing their schtick, and what was once a genuine passion thing isn't only exhausted and the well long dry, but they can't move away from it because they've been doing it for too long and that's essentially their career. Utterly depressing! This is what the undoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

(note: not the same person you're replying to)
The 90s had more gang violence and possibly a higher crime rate (didn't check the stats but i'll assume that much) but at the same time the average normalfag was a lot more chill and laid back. These days most normalfags are high strung, neurotic, and confrontational. This is especially true in cities, which are all full of uptight assholes. Not only that but theres also the risk of someone getting into an argument with you that they provoked and someone recording it and putting it online, people seeing the video not knowing the full story and getting the wrong idea, someone recognizing you, doxxing you, you lose your job, are made unemployable, made a pariah, you know the story. That simply didn't happen in the 90s or 2000s.

I was thinking today about the price of a home in 2021 which averages $340,000. At 20% downpayment you have to have on command to drop $68,000 not including other charges and fees that come immediately after and I just have to ask.

How does ANYONE afford this? It's utterly mindboggling to imagine dropping that much money in an instant. I can only think that it's like cars where people aren't putting any form of downpayment and are getting insanely high rates. How do they expect this to continue? I live with my parents which i'm forever grateful but the thought of moving out sometimes keeps me up at night.

You have to find a place that will let you buy cheap land and plop a trailer on it or, alternatively, buy a house in an undesirable area. In West Virginia, the median housing price is like $98k. There are parts of Pittsburgh, PA where you can get a house for $20k. Many other places are like this.

I recommend living in the country, somewhere far away from the BLM mob, and having your own land where you can grow food, an aquifer, and solar so you can survive the coming collapse.

The main reason is to be closer to high paying work.
When your time is money a 2 or 3 hour commute every day is absolutely unacceptable. We are talking upper middle class and higher who are willing to pay nearly any price to cut that commute time and increase work time.

I've been thinking about buying a place but I don't know, it seems like a waste right now. I don't want to rent either though, right now I live at my parents and pay cheap rent while saving from job. I could probably afford a cheap house. I don't mind living at home but I do want to live more remote.

I have the same sentiment about living in a large city, in general. Too many people, too many minorities, etc.

I live in a largeish town (20k people). It's not perfect, but I'll take it over a city of even 100k. It has everything I need, but norms moving away because it's "too boring"

Pic related is John Taylor Gatto, he was a teacher and then wrote a bunch of books about the history of public education and how awful school is. A lot of people today talk about increasing education, more people going to college, etc, but after studying some of the history of public schooling and thinking about my own experiences I'm starting to think school is mostly a bad thing. We spend most of our youth in these terrible institutions where we learn almost nothing. Almost all kids in school don't want to be there and would learn more useful things and be happier doing things out in the world. The history of schools is also very fucked up and basically they were just created because the wealthy factory owners didn't want a bunch of poor illiterate people causing problems.

If you look at the job market today, most people's job's have nothing to do with what they study in school, and could probably better off be learned by some kind of on the job training or apprenticeship. I think universities should still exist for the sciences, but should be much smaller and not a requirement to get some office job copying things from one database to another.

What do you wizards think about school?

anyone can survive as a high school teacher, but depending on where you are public schools can be pretty hellish, especially high school. High school is pretty much peak normgroid years, and so you have to deal with your students being little shits.

I think that school is necessary to a degree. You need to learn how to read, write, and do math somewhere. Other than that its pretty much useless. You could get an apprenticeship for a the job that you want after you learn how to read, write, and do basic math.

So suicide threads are for the most part an ongoing joke, no one's gonna kill himself because of having no gut to jump a big leap. I think a gradual passive suicide is more affordable to die young not dragging out another 60 years of even more suffering awaiting and then you die a meaningless life anyway. Then aren't drugs a rational choice? Your monkey brain won't recognize you're destroying yourself. Drinking? Fast driving?

there is no such thing as meme depression, or rather there is only meme depression. making the distinction between "meme depression" and "real depression" is pointless because the causal factors that lead to these are the same. you are only depressed if you think you are depressed, and what leads to thinking this is thinking of yourself as a victim. no one who is depressed thinks of themselves as a strong person who gets things done. no physical situation has ever caused depression.

I went down the whole "Flat Earth" rabbit hole the other day, and I feel it's a good example to use for the bigger issues of censorship and conspiracy theories in general. In particular, I was interested in the subset of flat earth people who go BACK to believing that the Earth is indeed not flat because of someone telling them a rather simplistic argument. E.g., one of my parents told me they met a flat Earther and they simply asked, "But if you go to the Southern hemisphere, you'll see a completely different sky and constellation, how do you explain that?" and it just stopped them in their tracks and that was enough to convince them. How do they not end up hearing that argument? And, after watching a few videos of people 'debunking' flat Earth, I think I realized why they never heard that argument. for one, 'debunkers' are some of the most smug assholes, and they don't ACTUALLY provide counterarguments, and secondly, I think the way most Big Tech promotes and deranks certain content has something to do with this.

You know the Barbara Streisand effect, where if you try to censor something, you're much more likely to get extra publicity for it. I think there's something similar not just to publicity of an idea, but people accepting an idea. I don't know a name for this, so I'll call it "The Koresh Effect." Imagine you were in on Koresh's cult, you were sort of on the fringes, but you weren't really believing that the end days were coming. Then, one day, you're surrounded by the ATF and are besieged by the government. You're not going to think, "Oh my god, this guy is wacko, I've involved myself in a cult and now I'm being surrounded by the ATF." Being on the edge of believing him, you're going to think, "Oh my god, I thought this guy was crazy but we really ARE surrounded by demons and the end days really are coming!" In other words, the very act of censorship not only gives free publicity, but via the Koresh Effect it also increases the number of fervent believers.

Case in point, now imagine you follow the flat Earth stuff. You don't really believe it, but you find the mysticism really 'fun,' and you like how they keep saying that, "Our ideas are constantly pushed out by Big Tech, MSM, and the government!" Then, one day you do your search for flat Earth, and instead of following your favorite wacko, you can't see him in the results. Instead, it's JUST people debunking flat Earth AND there are extra "context" warning bubblePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I can sort of see what you're getting at, but just don't fall into the trap of compulsive contrarianism. People who go down that path whether ironically or genuinely (the layman doesn't distinguish and the media/establishment with portray the former as the latter) are playing right into the hands of the establishment.

Like I said, the media likes to find the craziest conspiracy theorists, shine the spotlight on them, and portray them to be representative of anyone who challenges the mainstream narrative on anything or otherwise engages in wrongthink. Calling everything any authority says a lie and believing in every conspiracy theory that comes your way will invoke a "boy who cried wolf" effect.
