 No.176637

I used to care a lot about politics. I specially enjoyed studying political ideologies and geopolitics. It all changed some years ago when I was going through a hard but enlightening time. I realized emotions are the only true guiders of morality (and ethics as well. Ethics being the tentative of rationalization of morality). When you think this way politics become quite ridiculous. Discussing it, in particular, is the most pathetic thing I can imagine someone losing their time with. There's nothing to discuss but the way people feel about something in particular, but they try rationalizing it to the core. I would only begin to care about politics, ideologies and geopolitics again if I ended up as the dictator of my country. Because then my emotions would truly matter. But otherwise, what's the point?

Confirmation bias is a real thing. Something that makes perfect sense and is freeing to one person can be seen as dangerous to another. So you're right that it is sorta pointless in discussing difficult, controversial issues like race and drugs because people have so much bias towards it. For example, confirmation bias is me talking about something like 'freudian slips,' for some people, the discussion might actually be enlightening, for others I might just sound like a delusional lunatic

 No.176640

People map their personal emotions on to the political landscape. People's lives are empty.

 No.176641

It seems like when I look at political parties in my country, it's mostly on the personal level that everything matters. Ideology doesn't really matter that much to them.

 No.176642

>>176637
I'm really confused. On one hand you have this idea of emotions being the ontological root of morality that agrees with the construction of ideological castles, on the other hand you imply you have a rational view of it as being arbitrary. Yet the modern state and ideological politics specifically came out of the romantic revolution in reaction to rationalism. That's where the word ideology gained its current meaning. Now, we know this is specifically talking about today because if we apply the argument to other points in history it falls apart, e.g. under the pharaohship of Egypt these qualms are meaningless. So what is the point being made? Why do people act within a political system that you already accept the premises of, and even go further than most? Isn't the question for you to answer? That is, why is there a disconnect between your ontology of morals and a system where it's already playing out? I'm not even beginning to critique any of the claims made, I simply don't understand what the argument is.

 No.176644

>>176642
What in the world are you talking about? It's easy to understand what I was trying to say. Morality is defined by emotions. Political opinions are also defined by emotions. People try to justify their emotions by rationalizing them, thus creating apologies to their moral/political beliefs as if they were based on reason, not emotions. You're making it much more complex then what I'm actually saying.

What's the point of getting angry over something I have no effect over? You say they aren't full of hate then say "if you're not angry that you're living in this dystopian hellhole". I'd rather have fun watching anime and getting on with my life then debating everyone or seeing everywhere I look as all exploitation or degeneracy.

Possibly the only political action I do is not eat animals, mainly because of health reasons and also due to the unnecessary suffering in their produce, while my individual actions mean little it gives me a peace of mind and helps me stay healthy and mentally consistent but I could care less if a videogame had gays or blacks in it or if America became Hispanic, because I have no say in it? The baggage that comes with being really political is aids and not worth it in my mind. I guess people just find it entertainment like seeing their sports team win or something?

There's an old guy who's 81 at the local library studying plato. The guy is a genius and a polymath in a wide range of fields, and in his old age he just tries to keep himself sharp by reading at the library each day. His mind is a little past its best days, but he does well for his age. I've talked to him about a wide range of philosophers, from Schopenhauer to Aristotle to Max Stirner. Whenever it comes to politics or geo-politics he just can't bring himself to care anymore, he has his political opinions but as an 81 year old man, it just seems like pointless trivial shit to waste your time thinking about, he'd rather contemplate plato's forms or what have you.

>Why do people care about political ideologies?
Because politics have a far reaching effect on our lives.

 No.177073

Even if they can't articulate it, people know that their lives are meaningless and full of unnecessary suffering. They therefore look for a cause that will make them feel that the tortures of this life are for something, or which at least gives them an object on which to blame them. Most people don't genuinely believe in a God that has any interest in human affairs or in an afterlife (though many label themselves Christian, Muslim or some other belief system for cultural and family reasons), so they have to find a cause that it of this world yet all-encompassing. The only thing that fits the bill is grand political ideology. That is the only reason. It applies to all political ideologies, whether MAGA retards, woke BLM types, Communists, Nazis, or any other political system.

 No.177206

Being engaged in politics is endeless ragebait, for better or worse you only have ONE vote. Your vote, backed up by a hundred hours of thinking and researching, has just as much power as the succubus's who just voted for the party that people told her to on twitter. I only get really into politics like 2 weeks a year during election and the rest of the year I try to stop thinking about it completely. As long as youre not extreme enough to do terrorism or really high level activism your political power is just that; meaningless.
Either blow yourself up in a car or shut the fuck up about politics.

While yes, political normgroids are insufferable and dumb and usually can't change a damn thing. I must warn against what you said about emotions and morality.

Your emotions are worthless, they are not an existential reality, they are a delusion. Every abusive person you see believes they have the right to act that way, their emotions tell them so. Morality is 100% subjective, there aren't even universal moralities like don't kill. They say don't kill but if you are gay or kill someone else or are a pagan then its automatically ok to kill you. Even western philosophers who don't really know a damn thing have come to this conclusion. All moral people are insane. If you are morally correct you are entitled to destroy the bad. The bad can be literally anything based on your morality. Morality is a total circus. When I hurt someone in self defense its never because i believe I was in the right they were in the wrong, no. Its a shame if they force my hand to maintain the peace, i sacrifice some good in myself to do it. Moral people want to eat their cake and retain it in their hand. They want to do something negative like kill someone but have the benefit of still being pure.

i ask you this because you seem to have more first hand experience than me: what is the most common catalyst for race based tribalism (for wizards in this community)?

there also seems to be some sex/gender tribalism in your post along with the racial tribalism. in your case, was there some kind of incident between a female family member/peer and a dark skinned man? if not, have you ever grappled with homosexual ideation (with particular attraction to dark skinned men)? maybe my hypothesis that your various forms of tribalism stem from a single source is mistaken.

People vastly overestimate how much influence they have over the political process. They also consume a lot of propaganda online and are probably being manipulated by groups or individuals into supporting and giving money or attention to them.

On the positive side, people vastly underestimate how much influence they have over their own lives, and how beneficial putting energy towards learning to do things and finding or creating systems they have influence in can be.

ive gone in and out of politics in terms of interest. imo it adds a sense of purpose to the purposelessness of modern life.

i think a lot of people engage in dishonesty/conf bias when it comes to political ideology. this bias comes from identity and thinking patterns (empathetic vs rational vs fear based).
in my experience, few people break from the pattern of identity, where the closer you are to white/male/straight/rich/religious, the more conservative you are.

realistically speaking, politics comes downstream from ethics. natural rights approaches favor libertarians, consequentialist/contractarian approaches are a bit more complicated and i've seen justifications for all ideologies.

You just answered your own question O mighty disaffected rational being.

This is the only sensible position to take in the current political landscape. As Plato says in the republic, the state of men's souls can be revealed by the soul of the state that they inhabit, and the soul of contemporary liberal democracies can be seen to be deeply disordered even by a cursory glance. The only thing that the individual can do in response is to improve the state of his own soul. Only then will the soul of the state be improved.

so it has nothing to do with passing on genes? making a copy of themselves or be a genetic dead end. smart succubi think long term, perhaps even on a generation scale so now they choose the best genes for the offspring
in biological terms it makes sense but most men are in denial, like /pol/crabs want all whites to breed and come here asking 'what about your legacy?' but it's not up to them. succubi hold the keys not men, all the men dropping out of society is just nature doing it's thing (elimination of unfit) and would of happened regardless of politics. 99% of us (by choice or not) were never going to make it to the water anyway and be eaten by a crab or seagull

where did this impression of succubi being master selectors of genes come from. succubi pick Low IQ mulattos with poofy haircuts if given the choice, it was fathers and hierarchical sorting systems which forced succubi to choose competent, intelligent men. jeremy meeks is not going to invent the transistor, even through infinite time

men dropping out of society just crashes it period, you know that succubi are weaker across the board, right? physically and intellectually they can't maintain it, the brass tacks of things requires a huge mass of stronger, smarter men doing the actual work to maintain it.

I have my political stances, but I'm functionally no different than an apolitical person besides arguing about politics online sometimes. There's no point in worrying about fantastic ideals too much when the reality is none of them would ever be allowed to come to fruition regardless of how positive they would be for society and the world overall. It's also just not worth it to me to care if normalfags' quality of life deteriorates, and mine doesn't matter since I'm not going to have kids whose futures I have to worry about.

Not sure if you're American or not, but I can only give my opinion from the American perspective. Politics, to the most vocal, is completely about projecting your personal identity on to a set of beliefs that you think are correct. This seems to be a more recent thing, and as you can imagine, this has caused a divide between people because they think the other "side" is fundamentally wrong. Of course you have politically backed media, companies, and public personalities that exacerbate and accelerate the situatuon, but at the end of the day, this is everything that politics is in its current state. Right and left, red and blue, correct and incorrect. Also if you'd like to entertain food for thought (nothing /pol/ I promise): despite all of this, politicians are unaffected. Their salaries don't change, they remain protected among the social chaos, and most if not all of their work is done by executives and staff that they themselves hire. How could this be?

True. The majority of people are incapable of making decisions for themselves. Not in a "oh look at how stupid normies are" kind of way, but as a fundamental of human nature. Humans are social animals. If a person of a certain beleif is in a room full of people with the polar opposite belief, chances are that the person won't even mention it. This is a survival tactic to avoid conflict and being ousted from the social situation. In other words, if everyone else was jumping off of a building, most others would follow out of that very instinct. For that, yes, there must be leaders in society. However, let's look deeper. Politicians realize this, but even when they are exposed, they still remain, still in control of many things, even if they are public enemy Numero Uno. How and why could this be?

It's a dream to immerse yourself in that shuts you off from being too present. It doesn't have to be politics, but it's one of the more attention-demanding concepts.
