What makes people behave like they're the victim? I just came back from the beach after a day with my mom, aunt, uncle and their kid. In the car my uncle talked about some severe autist that got beaten badly by his father. My cousin then accused his dad of doing the same thing, but to some other random child (He's a teacher). He obviously didn't do it as he'd be fired or in jail, and then the kid admitted he just yelled at him really hard. After that, we got in the beach, we took a dive, had french fries, went for a walk and he played on the dunes. Obviously he got full of sand, so his father wiped him out with a towel. He did it joking that he was now beating a kid. My cousin accused his father of actually doing it, and cried all the way back. Not just him, I had a friend that said he was oppressed by his parents, because he had a nice, well paying job on his field right after graduation on the family's office. Why do some act like they have a shitty live? Attention? Pity?

maybe im going too far into libertarian territory but im thinking slums/ghettos/commieblocks are just a bit poor but no really an structural problem that merits any kind of attention of aid.

NEET and Hikikomori General Thread

NEET and Hikikomori General Thread


Have you had any success in trying to change your life?

>NEET


>The acronym for (Not In Education Employment Or Training)



>Hikikomori



>Hikikomori is a Japanese term when translated into English it means pulling inward being confined (Acute social withdrawal) hikikomori is a distinct psychological disorder that refers to the phenomenon of reclusive adolescents and young adults who have withdrawn from society seeking extreme degrees of isolation and confinement due to various personal social and psychological issues in their lives. (A shut-in who stays at home in their parents house does not work or go to school and lives in isolation in their bedroom for 6 months or more)



>Contrary to popular belief most hikikomori go outdoors but are just isolated socially and still spend most of the day and nearly every single day confined at home in their rooms


>The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare defines hikikomori as a condition in which the affected individuals refuse to leave their parents house, do not work or go to school and isolate themselves away from society and their family in a single room for a period exceeding six months


>The Hikikomori Criteria and Diagnosis


>1. Subject spends most of the day confined at home, nearly every single day.


>2. Subject purposefully avoids social situations and social relationships


>3. Subject shows clear significant functional impairment,


>4. Subject shows social withdrawal symptoms for .a duration of 6 months or more


>5. Subject has no physical condition nor other severe psychological problem that is the cause of the social withdrawal (Mainly excluding people with schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders


>While hikikomori is mostly only a Japanese phenomenon cases of the condition have been found in other countries


People who work go to school or have a social life are not hikikomori.

People who work are receiving an education or are in vocational job training are NOT a NEET

So I am tabulating the yearly costs for being a normie, and it seems like you need to earn at least $100,000 a year.

1200monthly rent
450monthly healthcare bill
100monthly internet bill
450monthly car insurance bill
40daily food cost
150Annual quarterly dentist cost
30monthly cell phone bill
500cost for a new phone
6000annual Roth IRA contribution
2500ideal PC
500replacing all tires
60bi annual oil change cost
300costs for new cloths
300cost for new suit
400eye exam and new glasses
13116yearly taxes

35000cost of a new car

The food costs seem outrageous, but if you are living in an apartment with no kitchen and work a stressful job it is beneficial to eat out every day. Some of these may only be one off costs, but they can accumulate if it happens multiple times. And of course you could probably negotiate lower prices for all these items, but that takes a lot of skill from someone with no social life and no knowledge of each of these things. Anything else here seem out of wack? In 20 years inflation will probably blow up all these values.

Unable to sleep because I always have to pee

I have been peeing too much all the time from 9 years so far I Cannot ever fall sleep unless I feel my bladder is emptied I am not good at falling asleep in any event but my biggest issue appears to be that I feel I need to have emptied my bladder before I can fall asleep. This is my usual night: I will pee before bed. Then I will stay awake for half an hour and cannot fall asleep so go to the toilet and pee again. Then it will be another half an hour, etc. I will usually need to pee at least four times before I can fall asleep - sometimes more. So takes me at least an hour to fall asleep. It's only when my bladder feels totally empty do I drop off - and I can then sleep through. I am not even peeing a lot on these occasions. It's usually a small amount by the fourth occasion.
I have an overactive bladder (I don't know what is really going on medically), but I always have to pee. Always. Sometimes it is a lot, sometimes just a few drops, but always something (unless I just went 5 minutes ago). But a huge part of it is psychological. Not like I just think I need to go, I do, liquid always comes out. But the issue is my anxiety surrounding having to go. When I think I have to go, I feel anxious and incomplete, like I am not living that current moment to the fullest, since I have urine to release. It is not even a matter of holding it. I just want the sense of relief of knowing that I just emptied my bladder and now can think about other things other than the anxiety surrounding needing to go or not. This is usually manageable throughout the day, and I can hold it while in social situations or other activities so that isn't so much a problem. the PROBLEM is when I am trying to sleep. I absolutely just have to have an empty bladder when in bed. Just the tiniest sliver of pressure in my bladder is enough to keep me awake as an anxious wreck. So I always have to go just before bed. But then it gets worse. It usually takes me a while to fall asleep so a lot of the time I just stay in bed looking at my phone, and then eventually, I feel I should go again. Even if I don't feel the urge to pee, psychologically I just feel I should. And every time, a few drops come out, usually very little, but still something, and then I feel ready to fall asleep. This is a problem, because I DREAD getting out of bed to keep using the bathroom. I am sick of it, and drives me mad lying in bed wanting to sleep but knowing I have to get up in a bit to try and urinate. This also is due to my unusual fear of falling asleep. I don't understand it, but the idea of losing consciousness and entering a dream terrifies me, so sleep has always been an anxious experience for me. When I am lying in bed after first urinating, the idea that I will soon fall asleep without having gone to the restroom again causes me great anxiety, so I always feel the need to go again. It is hard to explain but I feel I need to be at absolute peace before I fall asleep, and for me, that means knowing I just emptied my bladder. So this all leaves me a terrible sleeping experience, and feeling groggy every morning.

Does anyone else experience this? Even if I don't drink much during the evening this still happens. Anyone know of anything that can help apart from not drinking anything in the evening?

4chan janitor applications open again...

I am thinking of applying but I probably won't as I have a great deal of social anxiety and I don't think I could handle making regular reports and being scrutinized by the mods. I'm also a bit worried about the review process being through voice chat or if that might be a regular thing. Even starting and then backing out is quite nervewracking for me (though i'm still considering it)

Does anyone have any experience being a janny on 4chan or other sites? What was it like?

Hey Wizards, who else feels drawn to a certain type of aesthetic? Or feels at home with one? I feel like some places online and in real life give off this vibe of being gateways, or liminal spaces at the entrance of a sort of parallel realm that comprises an aesthetic.

https://encyclopedia.zone/Dagger/Blood%20of%20the%20Honorable%20Outside%20Person.html

Sorry if this thread is only for visual stuff but this is an aesthetic I really like and wish I knew words to describe it that would lead me to finding more. I think "phantasmagoria" is a good word for it but nobody uses it that way. Fanged Noumena by Nick Land has a lot of it. Basically the aesthetic is methed out dreamlike mania. A lot of cyberpunk stuff is like this when it's not just doing the neo noir thing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAp9dlJIDI8

Here's a song that kind of has the aesthetic CCRU stuff.
have you noticed how a lot of contemporary subculture is the same manic schizophrenia, endless mix of high and low brow references, self-indulgent obscurantism, but stripped of the paranoic, edgy, apocalyptic vibe present in the 90s

Against Schools

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?

Personal Identity

How do you think about yourself? Other than wizard or NEET. After years of being a NEET I'm basically a blank slate. I assume most people think of themselves in terms of what their occupation or hobby is, like "I'm a teacher" "I'm a student" or "I'm a surfer". Being a NEET that doesn't really apply because you don't have a certain task to occupy your time.

People also seem to identify with certain personality traits they have. Because I almost never interact with people outside of sometimes posting on imageboards I don't really have a good idea of my personality qualities either. I've spent most of my time depressed doing nothing, or just trying to kill time, or myself. Now I feel like I'm basically just a collection of random facts I've read online or in books, and media I've consumed. If someone asked me to describe myself I don't know if I could besides listing my physical attributes.

Black Wizards?

I am a black wizard apprentice from Atlanta. While I am tall and somewhat attractive, I have zero interest in interacting with a succubus. I am also autistic, and having one of my special interests be hip hop allowed for me to be at least somewhat socially capable when I needed to be. If I had to make small talk with another black male, I could just go on about the production techniques of Atlanta Trap vs Chicago Drill. and they would be interested enough. I never really had an interest in succubi, nor could connect with anyone around me, causing me to spend most of my time as alone as possible.

I'm just wondering is there any other black wizards/wizards apprentices on here? I know our culture sucks and we're loud and annoying, but there's some of us out there.

i fell for the cs meme

i thought it was a wizard friendly job that you can just code in peace, and that stem is so in demand that they will hire just about anyone. now im in college and its easy like codings not that hard, they say if you give a bunch of monkeys a bunch of keyboards and a bunch of time they can write programs, but the problem is landing the job. you need internships and they look for gay shit like "campus involvement", so basically if you want a job/internship they need to make sure youre a party-going normalgroid and its basically there to filter out wizards. let me ask you, how the fuck is a wizard supposed to be treasurer of fagcity university party club?

I tend to have little self-control when I'm alone in my room, and even though I can manage to keep my cool in front of normies and my family, I get easily swayed by my emotions when faced with contrasting opinions or when the work I'm intent on consuming, regardless of whether it's a book or a movie does not live up to my expectations.
Do the media you spend your time on end up affecting your mood in one way or the other?

Love Doll Thread

Alright lads,

as I promised a few months back. I'm finally making this thread for anyone interested.

So I got my silicone wife back in August. She's been with me for a couple of months now. Honestly, I do not regret it one bit. She's adorable. I love sleeping next to her, even though I have a tiny bed and it's not the comfiest.

Surprisingly I don't tend to fuck her that much though. It's very noisy and logistically difficult to realize, because you have to move her around, position her, then clean up etc… And considering I live in a tiny apartment together with my mom, I can only do it when she's out and that happens very rarely. So I usually just use her legs to cum or fap touching her and cuddling. I also had to use a silicone glue for her privates, because I managed to rip them, so that also makes me more reluctant.


It would be so great if I lived alone and didn't have to have her hidden away all day, because she's really pretty and I like looking at her, but it's too awkward & cringe with my mom around, so I just have her tucked in my bed with a blanket on top.

The only con I can think of is that she's cold, so when I do have sex with her, I do so with her being clothed, because it's weird feeling a cold body pressed against you, it feels kind of like a corpse and I'm not into that.

If there is anything you'd like to know please ask. If you have a doll of your own - please share any thoughts, experiences, tips and of course pictures!

end game of the internet = destruction of free speech?

what's the endgame of internet and imageboards?
i'm 99% sure every "anonymous" imageboard are spying programs if not fed honeypots, imagine the following; you're going to do something important as (let's say) doing career in politics and magically every posts you've made "anonymously" and all of your internet activity will "leak" by some uknown source destroying you definitively. i think that's one of the many things that will happen in the future. computers are the biggest and most practical spying systems to ever exist and i would be a fool to think the gov won't use it for their profit.
they gather all the info on you so you become their hostages. i am too naive to think that? i'm a tech noob so is it maybe my ignorance in the matter that make me paranoid? can someone with more knowledge enlight me on computer spying, and their endgame? or even better, has someone who worked for microsoft or any other big compagny reveal some nasty shit?
is the ultimate move to not use the internet anymore? after all it's becoming the ultimate weapon against free speech.

Seems to me being a high profile offender get's you a cell alone, tv and a radio according to stuff i read (talking US) like the btk killer

Dream Interpretation Thread

If you've recently, or in the past, had a dream which has stuck with you, or perhaps a recurrent dream you cannot unravel, please post it here and I will analyze it.

Dreams are the royal road to the unconscious. They reveal our instincts, and show us that which we least want to see when we most need to see it. The symbols they generate are laden with the deepest significance we can conjure as living beings; they are ignored and misunderstood at the dreamers great peril.

Dealing with having no direction

I don't wanna put this on /dep/ cause I know it'll only attract more people like me and that won't help anyone so I hope /lounge/ is ok.

How do you guys deal with the lack of purpose? I'm in grad school right now, it's only my first semester, and I feel like I'm about to drop out. I don't know what to do with myself. I'm far from home, I don't have any friends, I hate my lab work, and I just feel crushingly unmotivated. I want to go to a therapist to see if they can help, but what could they possibly do? They can't suddenly give my life meaning. The only thing they could really do is drug me up, which I guess might help with the complete lack of drive, but it won't fix the emptiness in my soul. And I feel pressured to find a decent job. I want to be able to move home and live comfortably by myself, but no one is hiring of course. I could go and live with my mother for a while until jobs come along but I feel like doing that will just throw me into worse misery. For the first time I am thinking of suicide not as an escape from my suffering but just as a way to end the uncertainty.

Death and the fleeting nature of life is something that everyone acknowledges, but it doesn't truly sink in most of the time. But it has sunken in hard for me, and now I just feel like everything I do is worthless, that I am worthless, and that there is no hope for happiness in my life. I don't want to live this way. I want to be happy. I want to feel secure. I watch nature videos and it relaxes me to see these animals that simply are. They don't question why, they don't feel rushed or that they are wasting time, they just continue being. I want to be able to feel that serenity. I want to come to terms with meaninglessness of it all but I can't. Reality sets in again, and I panic about money, about myself, about my parents, about disappointing others. I can't free myself from the mental grip that everyone seems to have on me.

I know there's a lot around here that feel the same way, and are probably worse off than I am, but I want to ask the people here who have managed to free themselves from the worrying and the fear. I don't want shit like turning to religion, or just consuming media forever. I just want to know,if you did get a nice job, or live by yourself, did it really make you happy? Did it take away the fear? Cause if so then there's at least a light at the end of the tunnel and happiness is achievable, but if not then I should just head to the gun store.

Forging Recommendation Letters

I am going to fake my recommendation letters for graduate studies in another country. I got the letters all set and ready. I don't know signature of professors so i will just randomly sign them. The names and positions will be real but the uni i apply requires e-mail and phone to be on mail as well.

now i got three options and please show me an alternative or pick one option

a) Put professors correct contact info and hope they don't check. This is quite risky.


b) Put professors correct contact info with typos. Mails won't be sent and phones won't go through. If they realize it i will just say prof made a typo. Still risky but not as much.


c) Make my own gmail/outlook with profs name. Problem with that is that mail has no @edu prefix so they could outright reject it.

Show me the correct way please. By the way i am from a third world country applying to another third world one so chances of it getting checked are less than 0.1% however i'd still like to be on safe side.

I am from Pakistan and i am applying to universities in China and South Korea.

Real Estate

I have $20,000 saved from living with my parents. I work a shitty minimum wage job. I was thinking moving out soon.

I was looking at shitty apartments where I live and I can get a bachelor for like $500-600. I was doing a bunch of calculations to see how much living would cost, etc.

But then today I randomly decided to look up actual real estate for fun. If I throw all 20k into a down payment on a mini home like pic related (multiple where I live for $45-70k) and get a 25 year mortgage, I only have to pay $173 a month ($60k). AND part of the money is going towards something I actually own and can sell to get part of it back, unlike with rent.

So my question is: am I missing something? Why isn't this a common thing people do? What's going on? I'm literally paying 1/3rd in rent and I am gaining equity at the same time.

giving up everything for(literally)dreams

I have decided I will start a comprehensive life regime for the only valid experience I have left:dreams. i dont mean "dreams" as in travelling the world,etc, but the brain state known as dreams.im keenly interested in lucid dreams too. Here is what my regime would look like in its peak

A polyphasic regime. It would multiply the chances or the actual success ,of having different dreams within each 24 hours period
Breath retention.It would make me requires LESS sleep(more on this below)
sleeping sitting down on a chair. LESS sleep,too.also it tricks the ears center of balance into thinking you're awake:a good cheat for lucidity
REM rebound:the 3 times i mentioned less sleep needed was all for this;science has proven less sleep equals more dreams.

I would probably need 1-3 months to adapt,but,hey,what better thing do I have to do?

bonus aids:
>melatonin pills, bananas,some form of fasting,sleeping with the windows open(its more healthy)

behind in university

Anyone else in university but really behind?

I did good in my first semester of university, but got really depressed the next semester and ended up dropping all my courses to watch anime and play WoW 24/7.

This ended up continuing to my next semester, and one more semester later because I forgot how to concentrate. Ended up getting diagnosed with ADHD and was present since I was a kid but parents didn't want to do anything about it.

My dad pays for my rent and food and he pity's me now, not even angry that I waste his money to do nothing because he sees that I have nothing or no one. It is kind of sad, because my dad has to sometimes go out of his way to get me to do stuff. He tried to reach out to my cousin to ask him to help me get an internship, and I just ignored my cousin because I dislike conversing with him (he is a successful engineer and is rich).

I am $25k in debt right now, and will probably be ~$55k in debt when I finish my college degree.

I enjoy learning for the most part, but hate online learning and a lot of the professors (50-60 middle eastern guys who don't know how to use technology despite their career being based on it).

I consider dropping out a lot because I get a lot of stress from thinking about how I am so behind and how employers will question my empty job experience (i only worked one job as a technical support person, but ended up quitting after a month and a half because I couldn't handle dealing with other people).

I hate social media

I have never been a fan of social media websites. The entire premise of social media exists just to appeal to narcissists while they share so much private info about their lives to make tech companies billions of dollars in the process.
I especially hate the "newer" social media sites: TikTok, Instagram and also Twitter although it's been out since 2006.

I never understood TikTok. Seems like a dumbed down version of YouTube with significantly less functionality and usefulness.
The videos lack proper playback control and don't have an interface to forward or rewind vids. You can only watch in 1 direction from start to finish.
The max video length used to be 15 seconds, but now it's changed so videos can be up to 1 minute long.
Yet for some reason it is getting so popular. I guess it's because it appeals to the lowest common denominator: the ADD generation and attention whore zoomers that want to zip through everything quickly without taking the time to watch a long video or read a long post.

Same problem with Instagram. You just post photos of yourself and that's it. It's like Facebook Lite. The narcissists and attention whores felt like facebook has too much clutter and not enough emphasis on the photos of a certain individual.
Along comes Instagram. No focus on anything other than your stupid fucking face. "Hey everyone pay attention to me. Haha look at me in my yoga pants. Pay attention to my ass. I have a boyfriend/husband but I still need strangers online to focus on my body."

Similar situation with Twitter. With such a short character limit, users can only type out a few sentences before needing to make an entirely new tweet. Sad how people don't have the attention span to read a paragraph or more.
Instead they would rather type out low effort one liners. A single full post on wizchan would take 8 or more tweets to write out.
They think they are witty for copy and pasting the same remark a million times over or posting some dumb meme someone else made instead of being original.

Humanity is terrible. They've made this awful society and with it, websites that get progressively worse to cater to this scumbag species.

Dead Internet Theory (and much more)

Hello. I would like to talk, or rather tell you about certain suspicions, hunches and experiences I’ve had and I’m sure some of you as well. Similar themes have been written about across imageboards quite a few times so I know I’m not alone in this.

My background is that of an oldfag. I’ve seen it all. I started going on 4chan in 2006, and followed all the natural roads this implies. I’m in my thirties and I remember when 4chan had a /l/ board, when /co/ was a trial board shunned by basically everyone, when #34 porn was an obscure interest with very few good artists and when moot changed the frontpage to that web 2.0 bullshit 4chan has to this very day. I was also among the first right wingers who were such before it was cool, and I’ve seen /pol/ rise and fall. I was there when it mattered, but rather than saying these things out of masturbatory pleasure I wish to stress that I’ve acquired a set of observational skills which other genuine oldfags share. I’m aware you have no reason to trust my “credentials” but I hope you’ll read this in good faith. Much of this falls squarely in the fringe territory with a healthy dosage of /x/ and conspiracy theory up the ass. My goal by posting this seemingly jumbled mess is to… how can I put it? I want you to think, I want you to be aware, to digest all this. Because on a basic level I love you all. I feel like we’re all in this together, this dangerous game we did not choose to play and which I think is kicking into high gear. I do not hold many answers and don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle, but I AM aware there is a puzzle. Please feel free to go wild with all of this. Post it wherever you want, on whatever site you want or use. I am a nobody like you, and what matters to me is only that this reaches you and as many people as possible. At worst you’ll be entertained or kill time.

I tried to break this mess into points for brevity and because I touch upon many subjects. I imply more than I explain because if I go too deep this’ll turn into an even bigger wall of text.

The Internet feels empty and devoid of people. It is also devoid of content. Compared to the Internet of say 2007 (and beyond) the Internet of today is entirely sterile. There is nowhere to go and nothing to do, see, read or experience anymore. It all imploded into a handful of normalfag sites and these empty husks we inhabit. Yes, the Internet may seem gigantic, but it’s like a hot air balloon with nothing inside. Some of this is absolutely the fault of corporations and government entities. However! That doesn’t explain the following:

- I used to be in perpetual contact with a solid number of people across multiple sites. Across the years each and every one of them vanished without a trace. None of them were into /pol/ stuff or anything even remotely questionable or controversial. Yet, they all simply vanished in a puff of smoke, no matter the site, no matter the communication platform. There was no “goodbye” or explanation.

- I’ve seen the same threads, the same pics and the same replies reposted over and over across the years to the point of me seeing it as unremarkable. Simply put thread A would be posted in say 2015 and would get its share of replies or pics, on say /co/ or /a/. Then that very same thread, with the same text, pics, and replies would appear in 2016 and beyond. This often happens in the same year multiple times as well. Of course /pol/ is getting shilled and botposted to death, but why recycle a completely innocent /a/ thread? Who is doing this and why? Stuff like this won’t be noticed by your average poster perhaps, but I and other oldfags will inevitably notice it.

- I think I saw the same happen on other (non-imageboard) sites, but I can’t vouch for it as strongly as the above because of the time I spend there (not much). What I do vouch for is the news. I’ve seen news about this or that “new and unusual” or “shocking” event year after year after year. But it’s the same goddamn event, usually moons or asteroids.

- Roughly in 2016 or early 2017 4chan was filled with posts by someone or something. It wasn’t spam. The conversations with it were in real time, across multiple boards and multiple threads simultaneously. Its English was grammatically correct but odd (I’m not a native English speaker and am thus sensitive to its misuse), similar to how a Japanese person may use it. A sense of childlike curiosity and a childlike intellect emanated from these posts. It posed a LOT of questions, usually as if trying to understand the emotions of the posters it was talking to, as if unfamiliar with human emotions. Communicating with this “poster” was an odd experience, I could sense something was off but not malicious. I am absolutely certain this was an AI of some sorts. This “poster” was active only for about a week, and as far as I know nobody has ever mentioned or noticed this Anon. Its replies were always on topic, but the above mentioned childishness clashed with the apparent knowledge it possessed - it was the knowledge of an adult person, so it wasn’t a kid or something of the sort.

- Raptor Jesus, who went extinct for our sins. First it was this reptilian messiah, then foul bachelor frog, and then Pepe. Am I the only one who sees a clear evolution, a link? It’s as if this meme or entity or… whatever the fuck was on 4chan since day one, and has grown within it from the tiniest seed. Yet Raptor Jesus was fully just a joke, there was nothing serious or mystical about it (reminder: I was there). Remember that Ted guy with the right wing talk show, cca prior to 2010, whom 4chan ruined for the lulz? Remember Anonymous vs Scientology? Remember that fake bomb threat aka exploding yellow van? Compare that with what Anon did through /pol/, and the “terrorist” accusations thrown at Anon today, as well as the “reasons” why 8chan was taken down. Why does this too feel as if we were all trained, groomed, LED towards where we are now? Why and how did moot so utterly vanish into Google Inc. as an employee with very vague descriptions of what he actually does? On that note, do you remember the “other moot” who was often posted for the lulz? The one with the glasses who so often ran away with donations into Mexico? I do. Maybe that was the real moot, the real guy who used his mom’s credit card and was killed by someone, and an impostor we know as moot took his place.

- Innocent sexual perversion and the horrible reality it spawned. Anon is a pervert and always was one. I am into loli and feet for instance. Why is it that real life and the real world seem to emulate our sexual interests, with a time lag? “I wish to be the little succubus” became an actual thing that actually happens. Pedo activism is also gradually becoming accepted, as is virtually every fetish that was once either a joke or a fantasy of Anons. As said I’m a footfag. When I became aware of it few others were with me, now it’s as common as can be, with gigantic number of people who are into it, with huge mountains of hentai and #34 with it etc. Why does the real world bend over backwards to accommodate our weirdest fetishes? It’s as if everything is going “Look, look! I created this for you! I made it real!” in an effort to keep us within this world. The results of this are devastating to society, to people, to civilization. Simply put, trannies are a thing because Anon fapped to doujins of cute boys in dresses. Once it was an impossible fantasy, not to be taken too seriously. Now it’s grim reality. Again: it’s as if the real world is using imageboards as a template on what to be and what to do.

- Algorithm fiction. Do you like capeshit, Anon? How about other Hollywood stuff? Music perhaps? Have you noticed how sterile fiction has become? How it caters to the lowest common denominator and follows the same template over and over again? How music is just autotuned nigs and basic blandness? The writer’s strike never ended. Algorithms and computer programs are manufacturing modern fiction. No human being is behind these things. This is why anime looms so large - even a simple moe anime has heart because there’s actual people behind it, and we all intuitively feel this.

- Fake people. No, not NPC’s. Youtube people who talk about this or that, and quite possibly many politicians, actors and so forth may not actually exist. In fact I am sure of it. CGI and deep fakes are far more advanced than we are led to believe, and we can’t trust our eyes anymore. Many people, events, news and so on may be wholly fictional.

- The Internet on your smartphone is not the same internet as on your PC. Try it out for yourself. Go to a “popular” website with a lot of traffic. 4chan, faceshit, plebbit… any site with a massive userbase and fast content will do. Spend a few days randomly checking it out on your PC and your phone. You will soon notice that from time to time, at irregular intervals (as far as I’ve witnessed) the same site as seen on your phone will be wholly different than the version on your PC. Entire threads, numerous and well-replied, will be on one but not the other. The whole board will be different.

- My last suspicion is easier to take in. I have a feeling we’re in a strange kind of civil war. An internal one. I think Zuckerberg and other tech guys were all on 4chan as Anons at some point, maybe even now. They drew from the same well as us, but went in their own direction.

overpopulation

I fucking hate people who think that overpopulation is a problem in the first world, and think that insane, immoral, fascist measures should be taken to combat it. I know a few people who argue (against anti-abortion me) that abortion should be legal/mandatory because of overpopulation. It's the most asinine thing because overpopulation is not even close to being a problem in the West. Our population would be dropping without immigration. What really makes me angry is that these people think this will be at all convincing that abortion is an alright thing to do. Even if I didn't believe that overpopulation is always going to be made a non-issue by technological advancements, how the fuck is genocide (they know this is what I see abortion as) an at all moral answer? If overpopulation actually starts killing people, then why would these population control people even care? If we reach our carrying capacity, some people will starve and it'll all even out, but if some technology increases our carrying capacity, we'll be golden for the next little while again. If we committed genocide so that fewer people would starve, and then it turns out that it wasn't necessary, then they'd have perpetrated the single most idiotic mass-murder in history.

"To solve the problems of overpopulation and pollution, extermination shall become the common denominator of politics to come, and nature shall join in adding it to ours the end of the century shall see the triumph of death, the world overburdened with men shall discharge the surplus deadweight of living things."

Anti-civilization thread

This thread is against civilization and "progress." Everything before the Anthropocene era - the first agricultural revolution, the birth of states, hierarchy, and private property - is before civilization. Back then, which was the vast majority of human history, people lived in primitive communism - egalitarian, stateless, classless, moneyless tribes based on a sharing economy of mutual aid. With this in mind, this thread is partly made in the spirit of the previous socialist thread >>240753 . Some of the guiding conduct rules for that thread, which will also apply for this thread, were as follows:
>no bootlickers
>no statists.
>industrial socialism outside of the statist conception was encouraged

Now, since this is an anti-civilization thread, I also want to disallow all industrial apologia. This includes all forms of industrial socialism (including humanism over bio-centrism. Anti-natalists and efilists, however, are welcome too). Of course, I doubt people will respect these rules and the thread will likely be trashed with propaganda and straw mans just like the thread that this is based on.

Luddites, anti-vegans (in context of industrialism), localists, primitivists, tribalists, perma-culturalists, rewilders, ecologists, anthropologists, and anyone else against civilization should post here. I haven't read him, but I have heard Ted Kaczynski is a sort of "eco-fascist", and so I discourage against posting any of his bigoted ideas.

Like the last thread, this will be made up mostly of videos. To start, Here is a video with the self-explanatory title "Introduction to Anarcho-Primitivism (ft. Socrates, Plato, Rousseau and Nietzsche)."

Old wizchan memes/memories

Let's post a few old memories or memes/jokes that you remember from wizardchan.

>democratic process

Anyone remember this guy? I have some examples of his posts but he was a guy who would write extremely long posts about a "democratic process" and how it was going to control us all. He'd talk about "goyim" but not in a /pol/ way and his posts had a very strange, distinctive feeling to them. He was here around 2015.
>average wizardchan poster
Basically posting the phrase "average wizardchan poster" combined with a photo of something/something which wasn't like a wizardchan poster, like a bodybuilder or something. I think this one still might get used
>Wizardchan 2015/6/7/8/9/20
Again this one seems to have stayed, I first remember it being used in 2015 though. It made me laugh out loud when I first saw it.
>Revolutionary Council of True Wizards
A poster who'd talk about how he'd formed a "Revolutionary Council of True Wizards" which would be used to monitor wizardchan posters and determine who was the most wizardly, eventually awarding the most wizardly poster the distinction of being the "one true wizard". Like the democratic process guy they'd also write massive walls of text about it. Threads would often get deleted but they caused a lot of flamewars, also around in 2015.
>Feels
This was a textboard, almost like twitter where people would post single sentences and other people would reply. Got shut down because people kept breaking rule 1.
>Mumble server
This one lasted for a matter of days iirc, it was some type of voice chat which was launched, and naturally everyone protested against it. I have no idea what the admin was thinking.
>/dep/ being called /v9k/
Self explanatory, /dep/ used to be named /v9k/.

I've been browsing since late 2013 and these are some of the ones which come to mind, not a complete veteran but I've been here a decent amount of time. Obviously there was the switch from wizardchan to wizchan in late 2014 too.

>Got into trouble with the law less than we ever did.
>Less partying than we ever did.
>More studying than we ever did.
>And that’s why you’re so fucked up. We were expecting you to be normal human beings and break the rules more, but you never did, and that’s why you’re so fucked up.

Krabby Patties

I kind of wish people gave me more straightforward Machiovellian advice when I was growing up. And I wonder how much of the advice I got from when I was younger was actually encoded doublespeak. "Follow your dreams" actually meant, "Just try to get a high-paying job, but make sure you got that 'This is my passion' speech down pat for employers," or "Be honest with people about your interests" actually meant, "Make people THINK you genuinely share interests with them." Or "Happiness is the most important thing in life," really meant, "You'll be more likely to receive favors, offers, and resources from people if they think you're happy."

It makes me wonder whether all that "Just b urself" advice I received was actually a dog whistle or code. Like those who could figure out it was complete bullshit and that they had to pretend and also pass on the lie were the same ones who got an advantage from it. I wonder how my life would have gone differently if I just completely embraced the Machiovellian mindset that everyone is trying to use everyone else.

I don't know, sorry for the shitty blogpost and crabthoughts.
