Commies hated Christianity so much that they were burning priests alive. Then there was a pretty big civil war, you might have heard of it. Right wingers won and established an explicitly Catholic authoritarian state. But instead of shoring up the faith, it just made people associate religion with the right wing authoritarians, and the country went turbo-left on every social metric as soon as the right wing authoritarians lost power.

>unless you accept Gnosticism
I looked into it during my early post-faith phase, and although I would be perfectly happy living in a Gnostic cosmos, it all just feels like fanciful philosophizing. Yes, it resolves the terrifying aspects of Abrahamic religion, but it doesn't give me any reason to believe that this is the actual order of the universe.

>As Russia was saying, it becomes more and more a thing in I think most religious traditions including also Islam and Buddhism or Hinduism that we get closer and closer to a terrible age where being good and righteous is actively punished and the evil seemingly rewarded. I'd say we are definitely almost there in America and Russia at least and that would probably be a major cause in the less faithful falling away from the faith, but you should still be stalwart against it.

Catalonia (got countryballed) was traditionally Catholic. Now the Church is regarded a sad joke if not socially dangerous (non LGBT-friendly, full of kiddy fiddlers, etc.)

Depends on what you consider "right" and "left". Well, at least atheism is not a political movement or ideology, so atheists can be anyone from anarcho-communists to nazis. As for the commies' dislike for religion, it probably has its roots in the fact the church was historically one of the biggest landowners, that is, a privileged class, and so it doesn't really fit the classless society which is the end goal of the communist revolution. But technically, nothing prevents a Christian from espousing "leftist" views (that Jesuit Marxist from Mann's The Magic Mountain comes to mind).

We're back since the old one is on systemkontra now.

This thread is for discussing tabletop gaming, though experience shows that it's mostly been tabletop RPG discussion in various forms ranging from play experience, rules discussion and design talk. We currently have a game group ongoing, based out of a discord server here: https://discord.gg/ZGmpJe9 feel free to drop in. We actually play on most Saturdays at 0600 Zulu.

Interesting, moost probably nobody know "Трава у Дома" from foreigns. Actually thinking about that, only russian songs are known is different 18-19 centuary classics and different communist\soviet molitary\hymn stuff probably and nothing more. Or some shit like "hardbass" or what it's even mean.

Absoluetly best movie I can compare this to is Snake Eyes. This movie have very similar main character with very similar fate and apperance, also played by Cage. In many ways if you aim at specific points, Bad Liutenant may feel like "sequel" or re-imagination of same character with different elements around it. If you not seen it, I can recommend watch it, just for fun after Bad Lietenant you will find interesting things here.

Kek, I got this film as burned DVD copy from a classmate in my weed teen times. The German dub together with the pictures make it an ultimate trash film. It's definitely gory. But as you said, it's rather comical, not sure if that is intentional or the story and characters are so stupidly over the top unconsciously. Just think of the prison directors son!

>Communism itself is full of some masonic symbolism.
since there are probably millions of things who are made a symbol in freemasonry, but only freemasons know, everyone can claim basically anything to be supposedly a symbol of freemasonry. sun, stars, swastikas, a rotten banana or a simple triangle shape might have some hidden meaning in a masonic ritual. however, that doesn't indicate that tibetan monks who might use swastikas or sub-saharan bushmen drawing spirals and triangles are members of some masonic lodge.

communism isn't fond of religions in general, including all sorts of occultism, and much less of secret societies consisting exclusively of rich and influential elitist people conspiring together in order to become even more rich and powerful on the expense of the average plebs.

consequently, freemasonry was outlawed in all communist states including ddr and ussr.

Just had some event at uni and a girl whom I've been eyeing the whole time (which I could indulge in as she sat in my line of sight towards the front of the room) just literally waited for me after class to "ask sth about my studies". So we talk a bit while walking, turns out we have some things in common etc., but ofc we say goodbye and I just let her go without asking for her nr. since I feel that'd be "too easy".
Hilarity ensues ten minutes later when I realize I'm fucking retarded and start regretting that I didn't ask for her nr. Really keeps baffling me every time that I miss chances like this, at this point I can only laugh about it.
And now I wanted to read some Goethe but can't fucking focus.

Shiieet brother, I was expecting a success when started the sentence. could have happened to me as well perhaps ask for drinking a coffee at uni instead of number maybe, it would included number exchange without asking straight for number.
I've myself met again a girl passing this morning I've been encountering a few times in pass more or less. We keep eye contact every time. Later when I had to wait because of reasons and no possibility to read I constantly had to think about snuggling with her and having sex which was driving me insane tbh and a defo sign that something needs to happen in that direction, not THAT girl don't know any of them only their faces but any of them that seems an "option".

Yes and no. I agree that there are more "weirdos" in compi sci, but not all people are like that.
It's also pretty relative: imageboard use is pretty weird to most people (I found that the amount of people that used or were aware of imageboards was higher in computer science relative to the general student body - keep in mind that imageboards were not was well known as today).
Funny Anecdote: When I was in school, a student had watched hentai in the middle of a lecture. The other students stared at him, but the professor didn't care and just continued on with the lecture (don't know if he was aware of exactly what the student was looking at).

I think even today imageboards are seen as weird mostly, the content that is possible because of anonymity is alien to many. Memes spread to Instagram and Facebook, weirdo opinions and stories not so much. Or let's say only facebook and the groups there allow people, who don't know of imageboards to meet like minded people when it comes to political opinion and worldviews.

This weeks winner is "Faith No More - Angel Dust".
Did you know that Mike Patton, the singer of Faith No More, has the widest vocal range in popular music? Now you do.

Because i get the feeling that 10 albums are just too much i will reduce the total number to somewhere between 7 and 5 which means i kick out both albums that got 0 votes and only add 1 which brings us down to 8 for now.

The Album to replace "Angel Dust" will be "Nirvana - Nevermind"
We had it in the poll a while ago but i took it out because people seemed to not like it much. I don't know why, it's a great piece of music.

The new poll can be found here: https://poll.fm/10506557
And together with the sunday poll on ernst.bplaced.net

As always, we start at 18:00CET which is in around 1 hour from now.

Since we're PC and inclusive here it's time to add some female music and replace the winner with "The Muffs - The Muffs", some pure 90s pop punk.

I am streaming an 80ties music stream tomorrow, starting at 14:00 going to 20:00 (since I expect a Prostmusik starting then).

The stream will be through many genres, from popular to bizarre, good to bad. After all it is a question of taste. I challenged mine collecting the music from my youth.
