11 pages double spaced at 12 pt? With citations or without being citation heavy? I used to routinely have to write 10-20 page papers for every course. It was brutal. I typically had to write like 70 pages double spaced over the course of every semester.

Oh. Why handwritten btw? Like what in the actual fuck? To be honest I think that might actually be way harder for me at this point because even though I'm quite old now by some standards I was still young enough that essays were starting to be done mostly by printed text files when I was in school, so I never really learned to utilize penmanship and as a result writing is slow and tedious but I can type pretty fast and accurately. That anyone would ask you to write a long essay by hand is kind of bizarre to me.

Wait you're in high school?

Y'all know about Vile? If GG Allin heard of these snotty punks, he'd probably be very proud of every song they put to record. "Solution" is obnoxious, politically incorrect, abrasive and lives up to the band's name in every way. Like GG Allin, this band holds its audience in absolute contempt, yet show raw passion in their performance. It can't be verified if these guys were dead serious or merely being shocking, but the album has achieved cult status among fans of early East Coast Hardcore especially on account of its legendary self-distribution. The band allegedly stuck copies of the LP on car windshields at Punk shows around Boston before unceremoniously tossing the remainder off a bridge. Consider Vile the East Coast's analog to White Pride, whose legendary demo was incidentally released the same year.

Have any of you even met Jews IRL before? He is nothing at all like a spiritual Jew. Trump is the living epitome of godlessness and a man of perdition. For all the things to make fun of Jews in a real sense there's a concept of righteousness, even if it's rooted in a bit of arrogance. The whole concept of morality and solid principles is foreign to him. He is however quite like that certain type of utterly godless Jew, or a Shylock type character.

Your phrase

implies the opposite of
>You do know you don't have to believe in God to be Jewish
Did you even read that? You're talking about Reform Judaism. It's basically the Jewish equivalent of Unitarians or those Presby sects with lesbian ministers. Being Jewish by culture or ethnicity=/=religious Jew.

>Some don't even believe there's an afterlife:
That actually brings up the interesting question of if or why an afterlife is even necessary to spirituality, which in a sense Buddhism for instance explicitly denies (depending on the school). You're also probably confusing the really weird heretical Christian and Islamic concept of "paradise" or the afterlife just being a garden of delights for physical bodies. There is absolutely nothing more base and materialistic an idea than that.

Honestly I wish there was a KULT RPG but even the PnP itself is wildly obscure and I don't know how it could be made into a real game, though I'm sure if it were it'd make the PnP itself explode in popularity too.

Started underrail. Not a big cRPG guy but this is fun so far. I don't know if you end up being able to get a party or a follower or anything like that later.
It has oddity and classical mode with oddity listed as first. Basically the difference in these modes is how you acquire experience. The former you gain experience, and levels thereby, exploring and finding little lore items as well as completing quests. The latter is you get experience from killing enemies and I'm guessing also completing quests. It encourages exploration but I guess would keep a stealth based character from getting fugged in later game parts potentially?

So far the only issue is it seems like you can clear a room of enemies, walk back to the doctor and heal for free then walk back, which is inefficient but not entirely impractical.

I managed to get my hands on a castle. It's not a city, but it's something. I basically just re-captured a freshly fallen city in the heartland of Hungary.

I also captured a bunch of lords from the HRE in a single, including this bastard, who burned down my village multiple times now.

The meta is basically:
>Get a bunch of archers and pikemen
>Choose a flat battlefield
>Place pikemen in front of the archers
>Wait for the fully armoured dipshits to mount a charge
>Shoot at them while they assemble their formation
>Shoot at them during the charge
>They fall off their horses
>You pick them off one by one with the help of your cavalry and superior infantry

I would highly recommend this review of Star Citizen
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhzU806jxnY
It truly reminds me of the avant garde feel of certain unspeakably broken games. There's one that's in development right now called Stellar Tactics which is a space crpg being developed by seriously one dude, and has been in development by him for years and years. There's something to be said for a game that fails so spectacularly, that is janky on such an impressive scale, that it unwittingly becomes it's own form of interactive testimony to the futility of existence and an artistic statement about the eldritch horror that lurks just outside the safe confines of our own perception. Being locked inside a room with no light and just my one dude in Stellar Tactics felt this way. It felt like a MOMA installation piece, where the line between viewer, exhibit, and artist begins to blur and merge, and you question your whole reality trying to force a virtual avatar to wander around a virtual box, alone and in the dark.

In that regard I think Scam Citizen is shaping up to be the greatest unwitting masterpiece of our time far beyond things even Mass Effect Andromeda could even dream of. I am now tempted to buy this game purely to experience the existentialist statement of trying to participate in it.

Yeah, I can recommend Holzfällen as well. Personally worked better for me than Alte Meister. I finished it now and the künstlerisches Abendessen is double bound in meaning. It's a dinner with artists but it could also be a dinner with phoney/false people.It works well with the German word künstlich and its etymological connection to Kunst/künstlerisch. Just one thing to point out regarding this novel. Talking behind peoples back, hating them while saying how nice it is to meet again. The phoniness/falseness within the art scene as depicted here seems to be a special case of this common behavior, somehow performed by the book or its narrator itself. We are all in the same boat.

I was a bit confused about the Holzfällen title and what is made of it in the book. Sure the rant could be associated with Holzfällen but then there is this scene on the last pages where it's actually dropped in a different context, can't get it both together really.

Read My Struggle by Adolf Hitler. I was expecting a deep insight into Nazi ideology or at least some curious conservative ideas, but I guess it's better to look into Rosenberg for the former (can't guarantee that, though: I tried to read his Myth of the Twentieth Century, but never managed to go further than several pages) or Evola for the latter. The book in question is partly instruction manual for creating and developing your own radical political movement (not sure how useful in real life this information would be, but since the author had pretty decent success with his party back in the days, it may be assumed that an aspiring political leader could at least apply some of these ideas to building a party in the modern world), partly propaganda piece (aimed mostly at the potential "middle management" of the party; Hitler didn't believe in using books for propaganda purposes amongst the wide audience and preferred either rousing speeches or succinct papers like the 25-point Program, so this book is mostly for people who can take their time indoctrinating themselves, especially if you consider its ridiculous length), and the rest is ramblings of a conspiracy theorist (complete with absolutely wonderful word combinations like "Marxist gangs of the international Jewish finance capital" — possibly a courtesy of Gottfried Feder, who apparently influenced Hitler a lot and who was also mentioned in the book) intertwined with some Malthusian ideas and attempts to apply "social Darwinism" on the geopolitical scale. I wouldn't say it was completely uninteresting, because at the very least it can be used as a means of looking into the psychology of an obssessed man.

There were also some cute details, like how much of an angloboo Hitler actually was. Whenever the British Empire is mentioned, he compares it favorably to the Austrian or German government, praises it in every way and says that Germany should follow its example. He likes USA too, but he is concerned that it may have fallen under the Jewish influence. Other countries of the world aren't treated nearly as well: Italy is only viewed as a potential ally in the conquest of the continent, Russia is a failed state under the Jewish yoke and the primary target of the future German territorial expansion, and the France is the mortal enemy of Germany which must necessarily be destroyed.

Reading Evola requires a solid knowledge of Plato, Plotinus, Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, the New Testament, St Augustine, Meister Eckhart, the Bhagavad Gita, the Dhammapada, Schuon, Guénon, among others. Evola should only be read after one fully knows the canon, and once grasped, reading him should simply be considered commentary on the source material.

One of my pals once described Revolt Against the Modern World as a Marija Gimbutas fantasy land for right-wingers. Suffice to say, he wasn't too impressed with Evola's material.

The fellows at IronMarch had this chart. Don't know if it will be any help, but figured I'd post it here.

No. 22768

The point is, even if you don't have a proper knowledge basis, Evola's books will still be interesting (read Among the Ruins and Ride the Tiger out of curiosity about ten years ago, it was okay; and Fascism Viewed from the Right is probably his most accessible work), while Hitler's opus is at the same time very boring and very shallow, and there are no complimentary works that could improve the experience of reading it.

i was lately toying with a little idea and wanted to hear Ernst's input on it.

As you all may know we have a serious problem with plastic pollution. We developed some genetic engineered fungi capable of breaking down plastics and reintroduce the parts into the "normal" biological cycle. I'm not aware of some genetic engineered bacteria capable of doing such, but let's suppose we have some.

would you introduce these into the wild bio-cycle?

I would tend towards "yes". First, let's try to imagine/determine all possible consequences. Ya, yaha. I know impossible task to do so; just look at what fuckery we did to the australian bio-cycle.

Started reading the first pages of The most radical gesture by Sadie Plant, former member of the CCRU. It's her dissertation from 1992 and written before she even went to Warwick. Yet I expect it to reveal connections between situationist thinking/practice and that of the CCRU.

A good subsumption of postmodernism is given in there right at the start:

Of course, the situationists’ attempt to transform everyday life has been defeated, although their involvement with the upheavals of 1968 made them believe they had succeeded in helping it on its way. Neither have there been any further projects of the scale of that perpetrated by the SI and, in the present fin de millénium atmosphere of postmodernity, such all-encompassing revolutionary theories are said to be no longer possible. They bear the illegitimate arrogance of political totalitarianism, depending on unsupportable beliefs and assuming the possibility of ascertaining the way the world really is, regardless of the vicissitudes of appearance or the ambiguities of meaning. On this reading, the situationists’ attempt to construct a unified theory of capitalism merely brought them within the totality they thought they were opposing. But in spite of the radical opposition of situationist and postmodern thought, all theoretisations of postmodernity are underwritten by situationist theory and the social and cultural agitations in which it is placed. The situationist spectacle prefigures contemporary notions of hyperreality, and the world of uncertainty and superficiality described and celebrated by the postmodernists is precisely that which the situationists first subjected to passionate criticism.
