At the beginning of this year, I started to make a concerted effort to avoid all news I possibly can. The moment I see a thread or post that has an inkling of currents events, I fly to the 'hide' button before I can finish it. The moment I see a word or two of an article, I actively throw my eyes away and close the article. I started it just as an experiment out of whimsy, but I feel genuinely better and more positive about the world now, and I'm starting to do some projects that I guess I was feeling too nihilistic and black-pilled to even get started with before. It makes me think that if there's a whole month to people being dedicated to people trying to avoid porn and fapping because they're convinced about the large personal benefits, then why isn't there a whole month dedicated to actively trying to be ignorant about world events? I mean, you aren't going to be able to change things that big, news nowadays is almost surely hyperbolic and negative, and the personal impact seems to be incredibly psychologically uplifting.

Am I wrong here? Why haven't I tried something like this before? Going full hermit seems like a pretty logically wizard thing to do.

Even if I can't do anything against it I would like to know about it. I don't support the idea of living in a fantasy dreamworld. You need to know about the problems that affect your life and the world.
Pragmatism doesn't mean you run away from problems, also.
>Not necessarily. A guy can remain ignorant of current events, but still know that most currencies collapse, and be careful about that and plan for it.
It is better know what, when and how will happen exactly. Your valiant ignorant guy won't know if some highly dangerous virus is currently on the loose in his area or whether chinese airplanes are going to bomb his town into pieces in a couple of hours. You can prepare for bad things generally while being ignorant but being well-informed can save your live or save you money/other resources.
>I'd argue the person who falls in lock-step with the Pravda is the perfect slave.
Again, listening to the news won't make you into a brainless zombie necessarily.
>truth does not exist in current events and the media
It certainly exists concerning current events, as for the media like I said, an intelligent and diligent person can piece together what's up without too much trouble.

 No.176816

The only news that matters is local, incoming weather, prices at the grocery, areas where crime occurs so that you can avoid or be wary. Change my mind.

The more you do this the more you realise it doesn't really matter. Anything that does matter you'll notice with or without the 'news', and at least then you get it without the spin.

That's like saying "There exist truth in celebrity news tabloids."
Oh, wait, sorry, I didn't mean to compare celebrity news tabloids to MSM–celebrity news tabloids are bad, but they aren't THAT horrible.
>Again, listening to the news won't make you into a brainless zombie necessarily.
And "drinking couple beers before going to bed every day" won't turn you into an alcoholic. There are certainly much better things to be doing with your life, though. And you're probably going to be a lot healthier and better off without it.
Again, I'll keep repeating this point: I think this argument severely underestimates the psychological impact of fear porn that the MSM provides.
>Your valiant ignorant guy won't know if some highly dangerous virus is currently on the loose in his area or whether chinese airplanes are going to bomb his town into pieces in a couple of hours.
I'm pretty sure he can hear a siren or see the traffic on his street pick up.
Actually, you have a point, if he wasn't watching the news, he'd probably end up being aware of that stuff even sooner.
Also, I doubt that he's ignorant.
>Pragmatism doesn't mean you run away from problems, also.
Correct. And MSM is great for running away from problems.

>>176885
You can still check your local news papers website for news. It will have a bunch of celebrity wank and a few MSM stories being repeated. They're easily ignored for a brief run down in your area. Might even find something interesting going on you want to attend.

They were never absent in my life, at least not physically but I feel like I never developed a true emotional bond with them. I don't feel more intimate with them than I do with acquaintances from school. The only time when my dad and I talked (not that much) was when he took me to school and it was hardly about my development as a kid. His routine was basically workplace > bar > home. My mom is an old fashioned stay at home type who only married my dad because of what he can provide for her financially. I don't think she genuinely loves him. My father never showered me or changed my diapers when I was a baby, only my mom did even though he was the one who wanted a kid the most. He never asked how was my day at school, he never helped me with my homework, he never taught me how this confusing world works, never game me advice for anything, nothing. I don't think we ever traveled, outside visiting some relatives here and there. I used to envy my school mates and how close they were to their fathers, like how they would share things together and encourage their children to do their best and such.

I wouldn't use the word 'hate' to describe how I feel about them but goddamn I can't bring myself to love them. I'm a stranger in my own home, among people I share the same blood with. If I wasn't such a worthless NEET with no practical skills I would be living far away from here and I doubt they would me miss.

You pretty much described the relationship I have to my parents. I don't have a single remarkable emotional memory related to my parents. They never were attachment figures to me. I was basically doing stuff by myself all the time. I don't hate them but certainly don't love them. I feel like if they would suddenly get terminally ill and die it would barely affect me other than the structural problems that would go along with their death. But that's the way it is. It's not my parents fault really as nobody really has control over what they are doing anyways.

It might be one of the reasons why I'm extremely unempathetic towards most people and never feel an emotional connection. I at best feel disgust and hate towards people that annoy me and curse their infinite stupidity. Not that I'm any better but that negativity is all I'm capable of when thinking of the human race. At least I'm not racist in any kind. I despise everyone the same.

Adding a dissenting voice to say I'm really quite attached to my mother and am depressed over her ageing/impending death.

as someone who lost a mom i was emotionally attached to, i have wondered how others may process the grief of close family at their final hour. my siblings and myself have witnessed quite a lot of turmoil with our father as we grew up, so perhaps for that reason we were grew closer to each other and to a parent that cared more than the other.

The entirety of modern society is nothing but unsustainable artifice
It's a huge larp of made up rules and regulations that don't take into account the actual reality around it
And when inevitably your caveman brain can no longer support the illusion of society it begins to collapse into an ever deepening sea of neurosis and disorders
The "solution" is either an onslaught of societal gaslighting and brainwashing to make you think the world actually works the way the game of society says it does or you get a battery of mind altering chemicals to allow the brain to either ignore the incongruities or perform the mental gymnastics necessary to suspend disbelief and enjoy participating in the game
The rules of society are becoming increasing disconnected from actual reality and we are consistently being told to accept these ridiculous notions with no basis in any fact as the absolute laws of the world in the same fashion as gravity
We need a mass restructuring
Uncle Ted was right that modern society has essentially become an unamicable poison to the human being but he was wrong in the idea of reverting purely to a pre-industrial agrarian society
We need something in the middle
A return to a more primitive form of society that accounts for the phycological and biological limits of the human being as an organism
We need to account for caveman

You're living in the middle of a revolution. I admit the industrial revolution lasting for 200 years is impressive, but it won't last another 200, and certainly not for another 1,000 years. Unless a radically new source of energy is discovered the end of mass industry is already in sight. There may have been a 50-100 year window where a space colony could have begun, a space elevator or mass driver built, but I think that time is behind us now.

>Uncle Ted was right that modern society has essentially become an unamicable poison to the human being but he was wrong in the idea of reverting purely to a pre-industrial agrarian society

Agrarian living may be too much. If the soil has been rendered barren, either by soil erosion, nitrogen exhaustion, or local conditions, your people may have no choice but to follow the seasons as nomads. We know from history that nomadic peoples, with a class of scholars or priests, can reliably transmit a few megabytes of information through writing. The most important information to transmit from today is possibly medicine but, as a person with no serviceable microscope has no reason to believe microbes exist, how that information is transmitted coherently and with a mystique that people will want to continue for millennia is a difficult question.

The biggest problem of all is that there are just too many of us, the Earth can't sustain so many greedy humans who demand upper middle class lifestyles.

I think gluttony is fun, and relatively safe compared to other vices. Upon a wizard's 30th chapter, he may eat as much dairy, poultry, beef, candy, or any other thing that brings his inner being satisfaction, for he has faced life's greatest adversary, the 'succubus.' The wizard, like a true hero, has maintained his cellibacy, and by not regurgitating his genes like a tadpole, has saved a few souls from the hell we call life. The wizard should be proud, for he has accomplished one of the mightiest of feats.

After careful consideration, I decided that the perfect rite of passage for a virgin that reached wizardhood is none other than the dangerous Surra de Bunda for a good 20 seconds, following this, if the virgin hasn't fallen unconscious and proved his strength, he should endure 10 consecutive sentadãos and do so without a problem, if he succeeds and can stand after it, he should be honored the title of 'wizard'.

Anyways, my stepfather is going through cancer right now and its got me thinking a lot more about how I'm going to handle this sort of stuff when I get older. My stepfather has family and friends he can count on to drive him around and get him things. I am most probably not going to have this. I did have a great aunt who died in solitude, and to the best of my recollection, so basically went into a nursing home of her own accord when she got her terminal illness diagnosis.

Any advice?

Also, just general advice and things to take into consideration about the solitary lifestyle.

P.S. I remember another wizanon wrote a book on this. Does anyone still have it?

Seriously, i dont get it.

This should be the golden age for disregarding other humans and being able to sustain yourself in a hugbox of your own creation, and yet, after 15 years of trying, i have not made a dime through online work.

> Tried selling on eBay in the mid-2000s, products eventually went out of fashion or competition blew me out

> Tried 'justcodebrah' more than 5 times, including one compsci attempt, we all know how that turned out kek
> The other four attempts were blends of online courses, FCC, codepen, some git stuff etc
> Familiar with basic procedural and OO code structures, yet this was all 10 years ago and may just be a meme now
> 5 years ago looked into ecommerce again and likely got scammed
> Getting scammed is a common occurrence in my online endeavours

I simply don't get it. I'm dumbfounded at my inability to wrangle even pittance out of the norman webuser, yet, it is i, someone who has limitless amounts of time to work on this, that end up out of pocket and frustrated.

Before I begin, I want to mention that I’m using the word celibacy to mean NO SEX, NO PORN, and NO MASTURBATION.

Currently I’m on psychiatric medications that kill my sex drive. I haven’t masturbated or looked at porn, 2D or 3D, in months. However, I may have to get off these medications at some point for other reasons. Truly celibate wizards, how do you manage it? How do you avoid the desire to fap?

Time has changed, and so has the internet and myself. Last week, I realized
that even though I have used internet to get my social fix to get away from
loneliness, I realized that I was only making that loneliness worse. You can not
hide from loneliness. I used to pride myself into being a hardcore outcast,
often rejecting potential relationships, friendships, missing out on invites, holidays
etc. and I realized that too much isolation can kill you. As a teenager, you think you can
conquer everything, until reality hits you in adulthood and you realize that you
need real compassion from a real human being. Video games, pornography, internet discussion,
and internet fights all seem fun and dandy when you're a teenager, but there comes a time
where those pleasures won't help you.

I've been getting therapy and I'm scheduled for a job interview this Thursday. 4chan, 8chan,
lookism, crabs.me etc. all have taught me something and that is that being miserable and
having a pessmistic view on life only causes more suffering, not less. There is
no reason to suffer. We humans often try to rationalize everything, but sometimes all we need is to experience is life, and love.

Change is possible, and I hope every single of you wizards find happiness at some
point in your lives. Wizchan was the last chansite I browsed, as it wasn't as edgy as 4chan, and I could find some meaningful discussion here, but alas, it can not replace real human
connection.
