Why did you suddenly decide to start using a name confusingly similar to that of an established Subgenius personality?

We're humans.  You are to some degree part of the pack, or you are driven out of the hunting grounds...Because if you're NOT part of the pack, you are a threat as well as competition.  That's just two million plus years of genes and conditioning.  Arguing against it is fine, you can do that all day, but that is in fact how it works.

Maybe. Depends on who you're asking, and also the motives of the person trying to go their own way. Ted Kaczynski preached disengagement from modern society, but even he needed others to disengage with him. He didn't want to be alone out there in the woods, but nobody came to his party so he mail-bombed for attention.

Still, I think there exists a respect and even reverence for those who do become truly self-sustaining. Plus, there's nothing wrong with the goal of being as self-sustaining as possible. There's nothing inherently wrong with keeping societal ties and contracts to a minimum, since obviously not everyone is ever going to do that.

Yes. Howl nailed it.

Letís try to put an end to the rugged individual meme.


Here's the main thing:  The rugged individualist meme - alongside American libertarianism in general - is a perfect extension of logic from an incorrect assumption.  Humans are by nature a cooperative species.  The mistake made by the RI/Libertarian crowd is that they assume that To cooperate with the group is to surrender your identity.

And that last bit is the part we have to attack.

The last bit is either a strawman or a misunderstanding. It's not cooperation that surrenders identity, but assimilation.

All forms of cooperation require some degree of assimilation. To what degree someone must assimilate in order to cooperate, I think, is what the smartest libertarians are wary of.

He says a lot of good stuff over at Scrubgenius.

Thanks, Roger. The feeling is mutual.

For some reason, when he's here, he can't seem to stop trying to measure dicks by posting the same shit over and over again.  Either this means that scrub is more his kind of board, or that he just doesn't like us, which makes me wonder why he'd bother.

That's because you're a bunch of assholes here. Or, at least you were when I first signed up. The problem isn't me; the problem is us.

Hopefully this will be the last time I actually respond to or address anything meaningful in this thread. I'd rather just shitpost mildly insulting comic strips once every few months.
I enjoy your comics, but if people stop being mean to you they may stop being funny criticisms of us. It would ruin the effect.

Damn. Good point. So, fuck you.

Wait.  What?

" bizarrely narrow view of what constitutes consent"

"I refuse to be defined by the extremes of my side while I define the other side by their extremes."

Why is Weeping Gorilla so unnecessarily aggressive in your mastabatory comics?

I think he's appropriately aggressive. And he is a gorilla, after all.

Climate change is a real phenomenon that has been shown repeatedly, scientifically and mathematically, to be caused primarily by human activity.

This is better phrased as "the scientific consensus is agreement that human activity is responsible".

I find it not only peculiar but somewhat blasphemous that you would stop posting under your normal username and then adopt a name which is almost entirely but not quite absolutely the same as a prominent figure in a well-established parody religion.

Seeing as how literally almost nothing should be trusted, practically none of it.
