More like half costume half street clothes. One dude was wearing armored shoulders and helmet over a powder blue polo shirt.

Omg have you heard the guy from Lore? He's got a xanaxed robotic with weird cadence thing happening. I can't.

Man that's stupid. It's consistent with the 2nd dumbest version of liberal critique of capitalism. See Moore and Oliver Stone for the most dumbest.

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

So, I get it I guess, but I'm gonna make a lot of critical statements when confronted with actual nazis. I'm going to moron shame them, ethically shame them, and when they say they are sexy I'm going to evaluate that pointedly and critically. I feel a bit like not nazis who are morons or who feel un...

Re: Arbeit Macht Frei

I don't see the self servicing model as apt. There are only a constrained number of activities that have that kind of One Big Moment structure - performances, competitions etc. It isn't a model for life or accomplishment in general. It's great to celebrate saving your first $1k. There it is sitting ...

Masculinity, so fragile

It's rubbish. I'm so sick of reading: White boys living in moms basement, are into [Dungeons and Dragons, Heavy Metal, Science Fiction, Video Games] because they can't get laid. How pathetic. Nazis aren't larpers. A good many of them are these days. It's what internet nazis look like. The chans. Th...

Re: Arbeit Macht Frei

A thoughtfully selected goal implies a degree of self awareness. It involves a set of questions like "in this arena (health, finance, work, relationships, leisure, etc), what are the things I find admirable? What does an admirable person look like, what specific things do they do, and what are the i...

Arbeit Macht Frei

I find thoughtful selection of goals to make that feeling less empty. I place the burden on myself to choose things that should matter to me so at the end I can say what's next but still look back at something real I accomplished. Having no savings to having some savings. Being weaker to being stron...

Re: Arbeit Macht Frei

Sure I get that, but I hit pause when we are talking about meditative things as ends in themselves for a whole life, which is where zen people want you to go. It's all process no direction, with really an embedded sneer at the idea of direction. Like if upon reflection I think I want to help people ...

Re: Arbeit Macht Frei

I don't think the specific content of the leisure activity matters as much as the distinction between the meditative/experiential vs productive/aspirational mindsets. Drugs, books, painting, knitting, video games, running, pr0n, whathaveyou all seem like perfectly cromulent activities so long as th...

I can get as far as appreciation of the null set as a decluttering exercise that allows one to probe into their more authentic set of preferences which may be distinct from their expressed preferences generated from thoughtless adherence to social expectations. I get that. My problem with this kind ...
