Or Kill Me / Re: The left and the right
« Last post by Doktor Howl on April 21, 2018, 08:31:33 am »
Why would people who have abandoned "traditional abrahamic values" (whatever that means) spontaneously develop better ones?

What would keep this void of values and identity and tradition from becoming nasty, brutish, and rapey?

Big picture, I like the sense of a decentralized, distributed value system. Like, blockchain, something like that, could maybe serve as infrastructure to a new political economy of temporal difference that needed to trust no one. Details clearly remain undetermined, but I'm starting to sound uncomfortably like some anarchists I used to know.

You are also sounding a tad bitcoin.

So, I'm writing again.

I have decided to try something that is both optimistic and horrifying.  1st chapter up on Monday evening.

Thank you gentlemen, I tried the best I could to walk the line between success and epic failure.

Rev Ned

Either result is acceptable, really...Epic failure is by itself a sort of win.

When stacked against mediocrity, for example.

You can go ahead and disregard what I just said, on account of I didn't read the whole thread and Cram said it better.

CRAM YUO, DAMULOUS!   :argh!:

That's an appeal to consequences

So is everything.  Everywhere.  Ever.

For nobody to believe in any higher power. For no religion in the entire world and all of history to be respected, whether new or old, whether western, eastern, african or other.  For the old traditional and abrahamic values to disappear without anything taking their place. For arbitrary rules of decorum to be eliminated. For the end of sexual norms once and for all. For all cultural norms in the entire world to be eliminated and replaced with nothing. For all distinctions between races, cultures, and ethnicities to be cast down and forgotten. For all gender expression to be eliminated due to all gender specificity of anything (clothing, bathrooms, sports teams, etc.) being eliminated. For the institution of marriage to be eliminated. For all cultures and peoples of the world to be merged into a single superculture.

Also socialized medicine and legal pot, mushrooms, and prostitution and reform of IP law and heavy punitive regulations on many industries

So what you want is a bunch of people who believe exactly what you believe, and nothing else.

Any ideas as to how to achieve that?

Jesus Christ, the "go home vans" that May approved of as part of the "hostile environment" policy was called Operation Vaken.

Vaken means "vigilant"...in Old Norse.  Who the fuck names operations against immigrants in Old Norse, other than people who jack off to Nazis?


You're fucking having me on.   :lulz:

They wouldn't, that's the point. They're most likely going to come up with comparably stupid new values

I'm reminded of that South Park episode where Cartman wakes up in the distant future

and all religions have been eradicated

and the world is now dominated by warring tribes of atheists



world is full of these misguided ghandis, like
"if we changed this ONE THING about the world, there would be peace and harmony and nobody would get hurt anymore"

"To get to that Utopia, to stop people from forming the wrong values, we have to rip them away from this thing they find meaningful."

"We have to build this new world hegemony consisting of this one kick-ass value system I came up with."


I've heard this song before, you know?
