meh. I agree that RAW did some valuable things, and maybe I'll even agree that Illuminatus! is required reading at a very early point in one's attempt to break out of Prison(tm), but that doesn't mean that I want to hear about it or discuss it. I mean, when your kid finally figures out how to add and subtract, you'd be proud of him, but you wouldn't go take his equations around to all your friends and co-workers and say "see? this is addition. see how he adds 3 and 6 to get 9? notice how adding 6 and 3 ALSO gets you 9? crazy, huh?"

just saying.

Fair enough . . . I was just getting the impression that some people wish he'd never written anything at all, which seemed odd.

And I agree with you, LMNO.

That's the thing though.  It's subject material that, though very basic one is expected to know. 

It is however, a bit elementary and moot to me.

I think it probably serves as a useful introduction to people who haven't been exposed to the concept before, or for people like me who were previously unaware that their condition has a name.

We have a concord.

Us Discordians do not eat baby food.

You should keep in mind, though, that n00bs coming in who want to discuss those works could have new insight to the old material that you yourself don't have.

It does happen, occasionally.

I shall voice my objections to RAW in the form of a rant.

It was originally to be a haiku, but it was going the way of a Greek Epic in length...

Hey, thanks for those links. I had only ever read the Principia Discordia... I've got a lot of catching up to do it seems.

Thanks, no problem.  Yeah.  Alot of these are fairly recent.  I suggest you read in this rough chronological order:

The Summa
The Apocrypha
The Zenarchist CookBook
The Book of Eris

The Metaclysmia Discordia
The Wise Book of Baloney
The Apotheosis Psychoerotica
The Principia Entropius

Memoirs of a Daydreamer
The Jonesboria Discordia
A Pocket full of Chaos

You'll also notice at least 3 of these books have bits from people on here (actually there are four, but one is for guessing).

I had them more down as leaflets.   Big leaflets, but still leaflets.

Oh, alright then.

Go to www.poee.co.uk and in the downloads section you'll find what you need.

no, you can NOT suggest some more of RAW's lame-ass hippie shitfest books.

Christ, if you wanna throw your money away on something that you obviously don't get (as evidenced  by your willingness to throw your money away on it), at least get the BOTSG or Revelation X or something slightly less puerile.

you made me cry :(

and thanks for the warm welcome
