I can't find the second episode, watching Nina Simone instead.
What the fuck is a homonym? It's something that sounds gay.

The fuck does joining the army have to do with perpetuating war?Non Serviam
The denizens of a simulated reality create a simulated reality of their own. This threatens to overload the computer on which the first simulated reality runsMeltdown from overload results in supernova as all negative energy-density trapped in quantum bits first explodes, then curves back on itself becoming first information-based black hole. Surface of event horizon houses monstrous synthesis of reality, developing inside the product of two nested simulations. Inhabitants of "realty" quickly forget there was was a difference between fiction and fact.
I wonder if sales of Hagakure are soaring in wake of season 2 of True Detective, much like season one prompted purchases of The King in Yellow? It was pretty prominently displayed in episode one in Ani Bezzerides' home, alongside a less prominent copy of A Book of Five Rings and some what look like some Fairbairn and Sykes knife-fighting manuals.
Well tough luck poseurs, my samurai killer manuals are well over a decade old. My knifefighting manuals too, though I only keep digitized copies of those nowadays.
Okay, what if we actually presented them with a choice, instead of pretending that war is the answer?And it is the contract that worries me, because the commitment only dances around the notion of informed consent.
Where do you get that idea?
The potential loss is difficult to grasp for most males aged 18-28, I think, from personal experience. I don't consider myself entirely unreasonable and yet still was susceptible to suggestion.
If I may allow mself to imagine what it feels like, I'd think the 'draft' at first was breezy, like the invitation of an open door, slowly turning into a massive undertow.
This kind of training may be good but the end result is something of a complex beast. The only way I know to kill it is not to serve it.
I have a feeling you may have a better grasp on the subject, so I wouldn't be opposed to conversation, it's your thread?
Well, we certainly can't allow people to make decisions before they're 70.
And it is the contract that worries me, because the commitment only dances around the notion of informed consent.

Lucifer wasn't an angel, just some king who thought he was awesome and Isaiah's author was mocking him for being dead.That must provide a key to the irony of his story. I mean, if he was mocked for having fallen, then his rising again in the morning must have been quite confusing.
The similarity I noticed was both sell techniques that purport to obtain the enabling conditions of freedom, a bait that is then switched for bondage. The 'will to power' is the exploit used, and it works through misdirection. Unless treating each other as territory to be conquered is really our thing, I'd say I have to agree with my original sentiment, yes, the similarity spans from intention, to method, and results. Also, they are both generally evil, and I don't allow myself to say that often. These are not cases in which exceptions prove the rule, not at all..
This of course applies to the main PUA/MRA(?) movement, however may also extend to military recruitment tactics, etc, I think. (over/out)
Were you ever in the military? Because there is precisely jack and shit in common with PUA/MRA "recruitment" and military recruitment.
