>Five years ago, Luo Huazhong discovered that he enjoyed doing nothing. He quit his job as a factory worker in China, biked 1,300 miles from Sichuan province to Tibet and decided he could get by on odd jobs and $60 a month from his savings. He called his new lifestyle “lying flat.”

In CA's case it isn't even hippy bullshit but incompetence and corruption.
They can't properly manage the power grid and the power company can be as shit as it wants because it has a state contract that forbids competition.
So rather then fix the root of the problem they just blamed reglar powerless folks who aren't connected enough to do anything about it.

Didn't say that.
Just said their motives in this case aren't actually hippy bullshit. That is just a smoke screen to cover for the long time failing power grid that is in the state that it is in due to cronyism and incompetents.

Sort of like how they try to blame global warming on the massive wild fires but it is actually because they have totally negligent and incompetent when it comes to even basic forest management.
But since the people in charge from bottom to the top refuse to ever take responsibility for anything they instead scapegoat and hope the people are stupid enough to forget when it comes time to cash out in the private sector.

Yes, they went as far as banning pie eating from people who weren't at least barons.
Can't have plebeians enjoying a pie when you eat the same thing for breakfast as a baron.

Of course, ordinary folk just laughed off these narcissistic fucks and kept eating pie, but it was still dangerous to consume certain things in public as a commoner.

The reality of wealth inequality is the problem in the bigger picture.
"Niggers" being a seperate issue in their own right, neither third-world or first world countries are safe from the natural conclusion of unchecked capitalism. Just compare this blurb about 18th century France to what >>274493 wrote:

"Shortly before the French Revolution, a small percentage of the population comprised of the clergy and a few nobles were known to be quite wealthy and lived a luxurious lifestyle. However, the majority of the population consisting of peasants was living in abject poverty. People would spend days searching for employment without luck, and when they finally found work, the pay was only enough to feed their families.

Most people lived in the countryside, as the conditions there were a bit bearable as compared to city life. Urban residents generally had a shorter life span since the air was filled with pollution while water was quite dirty. Disease outbreaks were quite rampant leading to many deaths both in the city and the countryside.

The huge economic gap between peasants and the elite is one of the primary reasons why the revolution began. Peasants were also not afforded equal rights as those who were considered wealthy, and this intensified the discontent of the people of France during that time."

>wealth inequality

Even if everyone started out with the same amount of capital, unavoidably, the distribution would end up similarly to today. The problem is that freedom results in unequal outcomes and true "equality" is only possible under an authoritarian rule that keeps the checks and balances by force. The problem with that is that any such government would inevitably become corrupt and we would all be much worse off, both in terms of economic efficiency (as central planning has been historically proven a disaster) and in terms of freedoms.

> our former admin Null
Null was never affiliated with any incarnation of wizardchan.
Glaive was the traitor who was de-admined by Anachronormie immediately after it became known he'd created an account on the cwciki.
That removal was appropriate and the period during which an admin had an active cwciki forums account was brief. My understanding is that Glaive was escalated to an administrative position on the cwciki forums after being permabanned from wizardchan, and shortly removed from their forums for some internal drama reasons I can't imagine any of us caring about.
>>274483
I don't think this case can be tied directly to the harassment he underwent the way his sex change could. Even with a good defense lawyer that would only indirectly and slightly mitigate his responsibility to the extent that life under continuous harassment numbs and disengages anyone's moral compass similar to increased probability of rape during wartime, which isn't a big enough factor to avoid culpability just as heavily traumatized soldiers might at most get sentences leaning towards legal minima. And there's no way a trashy impoverished autistic man in America will get a good lawyer. He'll probably serve time in prison and then be discharged from prison into a state run psychiatric institution. Tbh I never followed or looked into him beyond anything that's been brought up on this site and 4chan, but it's my understanding that institutionalization has been a long time coming, and he probably should have been re-homed after he started having autistic violence episodes in public.

>China bans e-payments to succubi selling their bodies

I already have my own personal theory as to why, but I still have to ask what the fuck happened that the (zoomer) normalfags are handing money over to e-succubi they'll never meet? And it has to be normalfags rather than just losers because they're making WAY more money than if it was just losers. I vaguely remember a couple of popular cosplay(/e-)succubi that made a decent level of money back in the late 90s and 00s but the money they made pales in comparison to the e-whores of today.

E-whores. That's the other part, e-whores. I don't remember cosplay(/e-)succubi of yesteryear of being much more than risqué (as a whole) but the zoomer generation of e-succubi seem to be bending over backwards to fill every possible niche, from "tradcath" asmr to licking toilet seats to anal dp with animal dildos to God knows what else.

Like what the fuck?

Not certain, but I believe it's a matter of most payments being made by Indian men. There's been a lot of memes and news in recent years about Indian men oogling over foreign succubi and offering to buy them things in exchange for nude photos.

India is the third most porn-watchingest country [https://www.indiatimes.com/news/world/india-3rd-most-porn-watching-country-in-the-world-up-from-4th-last-year-249212.html]
Indians are being taught Chinese [https://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/sushma-swaraj-asks-indians-chinese-to-learn-each-other-s-language-to-boost-ties/story-uEOj99pf7OYqBdq8Q3vh6J.html]
India is a very "online" country, with rapid advancements in networking infrastructure. Stereotype of Indian men is that they are highly versed in smartphones and social media. 100% of India has 1gbps+ landline coverage [https://myjiophone.in/news/finally-reliance-jio-completed-optic-fiber-cable-laying-works-and-makes-a-digital-live-india/]

There are 1.4 Billion Indians. being very conservative, we can assume that 500,000,000 are over the age of 18, and cut that number in half to get 250,000,000 males.

Assuming there are 10,000 attractive Chinese succubi who show boobs and vagene for money on a platform navigable in India, that's 2500 viewers per 1 streamer from India alone. If each of these streamers gives ONE DOLLAR to their assigned e-thot each month, that's $2,500/m for the streamer, more than a living wage even in places such as Beijing. But the reality is that they don't give $1/m, they give several $$$/d, to several succubi!!!

You wonder why China and India are nearly at war? Not money, not land, but boobs. 3 D PIG DISGUSTING CHINKY boobs. naaasty

Probably because people have been locked in there houses for a year and a half over bullshit, and it is a hell of a lot cheaper for the average cumsumer of such content.
Sort of how more normies watch porn then ever before because it is easily available and totally free for most people.

That's secluded enough to me, like, it's the backpage, the time of day of when certain demographics will be watching. And even then most of it was vanilla fare.

Now you're probably one degree of separation away from some attention-whore who has an onlyfans account humping balloons and some fucker who pays who a transvestite for nothing in return because he's addicted to "findom".

>Probably because people have been locked in there houses

This shit has been growing before the lockdown happened.

Look I guess we're not going to see eye-to-eye and an argument can be made that normalfags have been always "degenerate" but to me this is something different. I think instant-access, retard-proof social media and commodification have warped regular human relationships and concepts to such a degree that we're going to see strange things and normalisation of those strange things in the years to come.

There's literally no point working in Chinese society if you were born poor.

You will never own anything, your wages are shit even if you are educated, you wont be able to afford even a down payment on a house no matter how hard you work due to exorbitant property prices (Manhattan tier prices, but wages are 20x lower than in New York).

I'm surprised only 61% of the 240,000 respondents were 'laying flat'.

"NEET" is an outdated term anyway.

And from what I gather, he was leaving HIS house to “meet up with a new love interest”, so his girlfriend broke up with him and kicked him out?

Maybe we should find the younger ones and put them to sing in churches as castrati. I always wanted to hear how a ensemble of those guys would sound like inside a big stone building.

Would their lack of genitalia positively affect their singing capabilities?

Look up what castrati are. In short, yes. They tend to have higher voices due to a lack of testosterone.

Wasting away with terminal cancer and urging the youngsters to take his anti-technology message seriously; said youngsters overlay a reaction image onto his letter and blithely include a watermark for their social media accounts.

 No.283984

>>283962
If said youngsters were not merely larping, they would not write to him so a variety of government agencies could put them on a watchlist.
And if they are I would be wary of them getting cointelpro'd into doing some ultimately pointless, reprehensible act. Not that it matters as they won't go any further than reposting 'trad' quotes and pictures on twitter.

>A new and timely academic paper, “Will South Korea Be the First Country to Introduce Universal Basic Income?” by Jong-sun You of Gachon University and Jieun Choi of Seoul National University

South Korea could become the first country in the world to implement a nation-wide universal basic income (UBI) program. Lee Jae-myung, the ruling liberal Democratic Party's presidential candidate has pledged to introduce a UBI as well as categorical basic incomes for youth and rural residents. In particular, Lee’s proposal to finance a UBI with taxes on land holdings and carbon emissions has provoked political controversies. This article introduces Lee’s plan for introducing basic income schemes and financing strategies, outlines the political and socioeconomic background and significance of introducing such programs, and discusses the prospects for implementation.

Cat known for huge eyes, wonky feet to become mayor of small Michigan town

HELL, MI - A cat known for her oversized eyes and wonky feet is about to become the mayor of a small Michigan town. And not just any town. This little black cat will rule over Hell, located about 20 miles northwest of Ann Arbor.

Anyone can become mayor of Hell for a day. It’s part of the town’s schtick. Pets, though, are another thing. Sunday, April 24 will actually be the first time a cat will make sure all Hell doesn’t break loose.

Jinx’s owner, Mia, rescued her three years ago and the two have been inseparable ever since. Wherever Mia is, Jinx is. Wherever Jinx is, Mia is.
