Iíll say one thing: at least Discordians realize their ideology is made up.

And yet, it still affects us, and others.

Mrs LMNO decided to watch a movie on Netflix: Don't Fuck With Cats.

A few minutes in, I asked myself: "how do I know that name?"

A few minutes later: "Holy shit."

I'm honestly surprised Mrs LMNO hasn't banned you from posting here after that revelation.

Same here.  But it's been so long now, this is pretty much the only form of community I have left.

Also, I need someone with more experience to verify this, but The White Hats have been working hard behind the scenes at Parler.

I spent the winter holiday break staying the fuck inside, and finally got bored enough to re-explore some of my music school lessons.

I ended up writing some neo-modern chamber music.  Enjoy.

I'm pretty sure he didn't concede in that speech.  He talked about a transition of power, but never actually admitted he lost.

altered said it better, but since I was typing this out at the same time I'll post it anyway.  It'd be a shame to waste the most words I've written on this site in more than a year.

To quote the OP: "If I see someone else doing something that I know wonít cause suffering, then I canít possibly have a reason to try and stop them."

At what point do you draw the line?  If they're using any sort of modern technology, there's a 99.99% chance that it was in part created by the exploitation of child labor.

Basically, anything that uses cobalt or lithium.

Same with mass-produced clothing - lotsa child labor there.


In fact, you can take just about any behavior, and if you look closely enough, suffering is included.  Let's think for a second that American success (and European success, if I'm guessing you're not in North America) was built upon colonization and slavery.  It's a safe bet to assume most of our lives have benefited from the suffering of others.


Not to mention, depending on your definition of "suffering", almost all agricultural products cause suffering to animals -- and not just meat production.  Farming at a scale that can feed enough people destroys ecosystems and kills all sorts of animals as "pests".  And if you don't draw the line at the suffering of animals, the process of agriculture damages the environment, depletes water supplies, engenders climate change, and causes all sorts of human suffering as a result.

So, yeah.  There is no ethical consumption, and existence is suffering.  Might as well become a Buddhist.

It also occurs to me that if "suffering" is your baseline, you could be in trouble.  "There is no ethical consumption" and all that.
