I've been using english speaking internet sites since 11 years already, im 29. My main language is spanish, and to navigate english based internet was certainly an advantage. The problem is that i've became disappointed and tired with the english speaking crowd, its really difficult to find communities that are not conditioned by anglo culture, and all the things that encompasses (consumerism, ruthless competitiveness, hollywood-style pretentions, politics, virgin hate, etc).
I want to explore new horizonts. I want to learn a language that lets me find more wizard communities or navigating sites that are more aligned with the wizard philosophy. From what i know at the moment, finland can be sort of there.
If you are a non-american wizard, do you think your country has internet communities that have better discourse than english ones, or even more wizardlike sites? And if not, which countries do you think are the closest?
Normalfags gonna normalfag, language doesn’t matter
But some cultures must have it a little better
Argentina here. Every spanish speaking country is out of question.
hispachan was cancer but english speaking communities aren't any better.
Niche boards usually, some you find it yourself, some others find you
Thats exactly what i mean.>>194395
Im talking more about languages and cultures, aside from english
I think Japan is the only way, for one reason they are the birthplace of IBs and hikikomoris.
Well, i thought about japan and i dont know if its necessarily that way, i mean yeah, hiki and otaku are born over there, but they are looked down and shamed till basically suicide by the majority of their society.
mmm idk anon, we are becoming fewer and fewer
y eso te cala maistro
I read japanese blogs, all of them related to retro games. Sadly, most of them are already dead. Social media also killed japanese blogs, sadly. I think it's time for me to focus on hobbies that I can enjoy without talking to people about it.
Are you japanese or did you learn japanese? Is this correct >>194398
yeah one would think that japanese internet would be better in that sense but you still get a lot of assholes who get a kick out of shitting on neets and shut-ins online, it also doesn't help that a lot of japanese people now mainly post on twitter and they pick up american poltiical discourse at an alarming rate so even if you follow a bunch of japanese account you still get english sphere drama.
I feel like you can't really escape normals online no matter the language, everonye pretty much lives on the internet now not just withdrawn nerd types.
At least it should be a country where neeting and reduce working is seen as a philosophy. Sort of like cynicism. I heard that china is having a wave of "laying flat" youth where they drop out of society for their distrust in the system, yet again china is a dystopia
Bumping my dying thread
normalfags are fucking poison, man. I recently talked to some normalfags on 4chan, and they kept telling me that if you don't get normie approval you should basically kill yourself. I know they were probably trolling but every time I have shown my power level IRL normalfags looked at me like I was subhuman. They have that virtue signalling, brain dead shit culture that makes them want to exterminate you if you're "weird", even though it's us weird people that have contributed the most to humanity and most of us are peaceful.
Learn Japanese, I don't know about wizard communities but it still has far more communities that a wizard would like than any other language.>do you think your country has internet communities that have better discourse than english ones
Fuck no, 99% of Turks on the internet are teen retards who spout reddit memes or literal children, the remaining 1% are 30something year olds who beat and rape their mother and spend their day fucking around on the net all the time. I'm literally the only semi-sane Turk on the net.
I will be learning german and finnish. Nice places.
>>194387>If you are a non-american wizard, do you think your country has internet communities that have better discourse than english ones, or even more wizardlike sites?
none, maybe some niche board but there's no popular one, and that's why i like western internet more, because there's couple of website where i can be accepted as mentally ill loser.
browsing western internet is best cope i've ever had, there's almost nothing that remind me of real life stuffs here(i'm from japan by the way)
How different is Eastern internet to its Western counterpart?
Isnt 2chan closer to wizchan than 4chan?
It's actually hilarious how some manbabies here that watch manbaby anime fetishize Japan.
Anime is just manbaby cope because anime just tries to simulate friendship and succubi companionship.
I really enjoyed the days in my wiz youth when I could watch anime and actually enjoy it. I really loved anime like Spice and Wolf that had beautiful scenery. Good anime is somehow so immersive. It takes you away from your horrible life. Then there is the anime that somehow has amazing classical soundtracks. That's another form of escapism you can enjoy long after the series is over.
Now as an adult I can't watch anime because all of the subject matter is aimed at the problems that young people have. It's not really a genre for adults. I guess. Oh well, there's plenty of good books and other content out there.
Same. There are some manga that i can read but still, i wish there were more hiki themed manga
Check out Saitaihen no Otoko, Choudouryoku Mouko Daishuurai and Saltiness. I'm looking for manga with protags that are genuine life fuck-ups and not just sad teenagers and these three, while radically different in tone and themes, fit the bill just a bit.
Don't tell this site about cool internet places. You're just going to ruin them
This. I've seen it happen before.
reminds me of this failed normalfag hapa
why do you think there's such large amount of failed normies growing these days? was it always like that? maybe it's just the result of globalization? maybe it's the result of "progress"?
Reminds me of Conan the Barbarian
Very good observations.
This is just psychoanalysis tripe. Just say things that sound nice and smart. As long as the conclusions are things that aligns with people beliefs, everybody will accept it. Nobody can refute you because all the statements you make are things that can't be proved or disproved. Typical social """science""".
Oversimplification and typical "evil people = losers" just world tier bullshit. Most sadists aren't failed normals or people who suffered in any way, it's the opposite. It's usually the pretty boy who was born into a rich family and got worshipped all his life that ends up with zero empathy and thinking he can get away with everything.
I "like" how the guy who wrote that wall of text basically implies that only failed normals are sadists while the majority of normals are decent and good fellows. In most cases it's not outsiders or outcasts who are sadistic but the normal people, the majority. Because knowing that they have the backing and approval of the group they can do any awful thing against people who are considered as enemies or harmful to society.
Concentration camps and gulags weren't run by bitter failed normals but by completely functional and "healthy" normalfags. This text is another attempt at whiteknighting for society and culture and the majority and trying to pin the blame on a group of outcasts and outsiders.>>198975
There have always been failed normals and wizards but you never heard or read about that type previously. With the internet new worlds and new experiences entered into mainstream culture. Progress and globalization have nothing to do with this, if anything the current liberal society made it easier for people to norm it up.
You’re reading that piece as an attack on you, or some loser minority. He’s describing a type of person in modernity that is growing, more and more on the internet. Neurotic, struggling to enjoy life mindlessly, making their life a conscious ego language construction that is threatened and leads to anger.
*smokes some zaza*
No, I didn't feel offended by it personally but still I disagree with the message. That "failed normals" are monsters while "normals" are completely good guys. It's the other way around if we want to generalize. Failed normals are mostly confused if you ask me as they feel how hypocrite the normal life is yet they can't come up with a better alternative to it (they haven't reached the stage of wizardly individualist awakening yet). Failed normals are still seekers who will end up as either normals or wizards eventually.
Normals on the other hand are just mindless beasts who center around anyone they feel is different and gang upon him in the name of protecting the community from weirdos. They have no excuses and they are the ones responsible for most horrible stuff happening.
why don't just respond to irony with irony? what makes you want to argue with ironical copypaste wall of text?
>>198980>It's usually the pretty boy who was born into a rich family and got worshipped all his life that ends up with zero empathy and thinking he can get away with everything.
oh god I actually regret reading it. boy actually books and simple documentary shows draw a different picture. mad murderers and other bullshit are people who were inherently so and then got into some condition that made their cruelty to bloom. but you somehow take your experience from watching anime and say it's real life. no it's not.>weren't run by bitter failed normals but by completely functional and "healthy" normalfags
they were run by soldiers who don't give a shit and just carry out orders and by the traitors. as a rule cold-hearted and cruel ones were chosen so that they killed unnecessary bodies without mercy. that guys were basically criminals and they were either forced to become or were inherently so. the first are victims, the second were not normal, they had problems with head from the very beginning.
There's two "2chan"'s right now, futaba and 5chan, the latter is popular as fuck and has a trillion boards, on average it's extremely normalfag but there are a few boards that are relatively close to wizchan. The former has a normal amount of boards, half of them are dead as fuck and get maybe 1 post every half year, the other half have a few dozen posts a year. Not very wizchan-like but moderately less normalfag than 5chan on average. I think only bald old men post there.
If anybody is searching for a Japanese channel that's similar/close to wizchan then they are better off looking for random obscure ones I think.
5chan redirects to youtube why?
to keep out the gaijin. Try a VPN.
How come? Try this link, and what the other guy said. A decent chunk of Jap proxies are banned but not all, so you can post if you fiddle around a bit, shitposting in broken Japanese will just get you called a Korean and b&, but I think there was a board or two where people only speak English, and gaijin were allowed in too.
