If there was a non-religious confession box as a service: would you personally try it after you did something stupid or shameful and do you think it would be helpful to people to cope?

Maybe not spiritually, but getting things of your chest because conscience. But I guess guilt is a deeply religious concept that went into our veines so to speak, it became more secular/everday but still it's rooted in religion, some people might claim it's a natural thing..perhaps it is.

>>38725
Well reading the thread I came up with something. The internet confession is less of a ritual, don't know if a non-religious confession box would have a ritualistic dimension since history and contexts are missing. But a ritual oftentimes is about transcendence in the meaning of exceeding a line. So that could be a difference, a ritual means crossing a border or a threshold which is not the same I hope I translated Grenze und Schwelle adequately, you come out different after it. Not sure if an online confession has the same effect, maybe the impact would be/is less intense because a physical presence is missing.

This is somewhat was I was going for, because I think that rituals are to some degree rooted in humans but with secularisation have changed in character and are in a way less obvious.

Hell no absolutely fucking NOT
God what garbage. Well I pretty much view therapists the same way and look down on it for those very reasons. I tried it. I used to just think it, but now I am convinced of it. It is stupid and completely fucking useless and the real scandal of bullshit like Scientology is that their retarded blackmail confessionals are no more or less anti-scientific or useless than "real" therapy.
>b-but my therapist
Yeah, and you probably could have benefited just as much by going to a retarded cult and holding those cans.

I similarly look upon it with such suspicion that so far as I'm concerned they are nothing but blackmail file generators to begin with, with the added audacity of robbing me blind for the privilege of being in the room with them sitting on their fat asses. It is for people who only know and hang out with dumb people and various spray tan bleached hair level bydlo whose friends are all as shallow and useless as they are retarded, or who have no friends at all (like my parents). In that case it is more indicative of an overall structural failure of society as a whole of what's been produced by the modern Capitalist system, and more than likely, was equally true of the Soviet Communist system as well. It is the result of modern alienation and cosmopolitanism and a certain layer of pitiful I feel bad just saying the word pathetic to describe it. I mean fuck, if you joined a cult at least you might make some actual friends ffs. A therapist is just the stranger beside you of course, I am probably paranoid PD or schizoid PD level of touchy about anybody getting to know me without my explicit permission or getting close to me, touching me, or most of all probing my spiritual and mental insides so the very concept of this is probably far more revolting to me than on average.

disrespected, maybe

I am a little sad about 8chan though. There was much more to that website than /pol/; the ability to create your own board was amazing.
Many of the niche boards that I liked (about same pph as EC if not faster) are still e0001.

It is unfortunate cycle:
A site becomes more widely used and becomes shit (or dies): youtube, reddit, 4chan, krautchan, etc.
In reaction, people create alternatives: bitchute, voat, 8chan, kohlchan, etc.
But since the original websites have all the momentum, only the people who are most readily impacted by the shittiness and who are the most invested switch over.
This causes the alternatives to be full of dedicated schizos and autists who create an echo chamber.
For example: I really dislike the policies of youtube, but when I look at front page of bitchute and all I see are conspiracy videos, German Military March #4121, and edgy political commentator #1231, I shake my head in disbelief.

I know you're joking but I can imagine someone having that kind of retarded idea because all you'd be doing is ensuring tolerance building and eventually addiction. I don't think any use of fentanyl or other opioids for that matter is safe or that taking a lot wouldnt put you at risk for addiction but still.

>>33244
This is all it really comes down to. It is taking drugs for people who think they're too smart to take drugs. I can imagine the exact like of vapid Silicon Valley retard who'd be really into this kind of thing, and then try turning it into another retarded dangerous American get rich quick scheme and scamming a bunch of people. Or New Agers doing it.

Considering that a lot of these are probably made in Chinese bathtub labs I highly doubt any of them are safe to begin with and more than likely it's more dangerous taking these things than abusing prescription drugs because I'm pretty sure all these guys are basically just ordering pounds of it at a time off of Ali Baba. You should ask Turkic peoples what the wisdom of Tengri has to say about trusting Chinese merchants or Chinese in general. So yeah good luck with that.

Phenylpiracetam works extremely well for me

I find it stimulating, and am able to really dig in and focus on work like nothing else. I take Alpha GPC with it, that I can't tell if it hurts or helps but is recommended in the nootropic community

I also use modafinil, both together allow me to keep awake and alert for 36 hours

I save them for days where I plan on putting in a monumental effort

Other racetams and nootropics I've tried didn't have too much effect (tried many racetams and noopept, also adrafinil, ashwagandha, etc.)

The rationale behind the submachine gun was that the gentler recoil of a pistol cartridge allows one to fire full auto while still hitting the target. Pre-ban fully automatic firearms are prohibitively expensive for civilian ownership in the USA, but currently "binary triggers" that fire twice per trigger pull (once on pull, once on release) are available, which makes SMG-like weapons again a viable choice for civilian ownership. However in recent decades the proliferation of cheap and light body armor has led to SMGs falling out of favor with law enforcement and military users with short-barreled rifles becoming increasingly popular. Do imitation SMGs have any place in the current-day USA or elsewhere for that matter?
>>
No. 37993
The rationale was not really that gentler recoil would enable fully automatic fire, it was that the gentler recoil of a pistol cartridge would enable simple blowback/open bolt designs. We are now well past that and have low recoil rifle cartridges so a pistol cartridge is not really necessary for a short, light automatic weapon and the 5.56 can penetrate much more and do a lot more.

However, as an item for the civilian market it has some merit, you might not actually want the penetration in a home defence situation and hollow points can make up for the decreased lethality. But I don't know that a binary trigger would actually have much merit to it, it's not really enough that you could just spray at whatever threat was near and at the same time I would assume that it would have a negative impact on accuracy if you wanted to fire quick but aimed individual shots. A regular semi-automatic would probably be better.

Oh crap, I actually not understood theme of thread because english, I mixed binary trigger with Progressive trigger, and wanted also to add that progressive triggers is kind of crap and select fire is better, but I readed this article and find out that this is kind of mechanicsm that allow semi-autos being kind of fake full autos https://www.pewpewtactical.com/franklin-armory-bsf-iii-binary-trigger/

Aren't for same reason in US banned a lot of semi auto convertions because it's "easy to convert them in full auto" so they should be registred as automatic weapon? And new created things like SP5 - semiauto MP5 created the way you can't just replace fire control group and make it MP5 again, and this things from OP directly penetrate ideas of this prohibit laws?

Ernstchan is uniquely suited to hosting a "zine", or rather, a journal. The slow pace of the board, with focus on well thought, rational posts, combined with the knowledgeable and intelligent posters here, makes ernstchan ideal as a source of quality content for this sort of endeavour.

As such, I am looking for submissions for this journal. Submissions can be as long or as short as you wish, and can be on any topic of your choice. Artwork, poetry, fiction, puzzles, how to guides, recipes etc etc are also highly encouraged.

I hope to publish the first edition next month, and after that, once every two months, with special editions in between (for example, Christmas).

Submissions can be sent to --

>have > hav

I agree, it could also be said that we could reverse the weird English trend of putting the vowel at the end of word when it occurs in the middle. For example; (The first word is just to show the effect of the the e in the second)

> Hat > Hate > Haet
> Bit > Bite > Beit
> Car > Care > Caer

The latter you might notice already exists in British English as a loanword from Welsh pronounced identically to the first.

Personally, I'd keep the "silent e lengthens the previous vowel", if only because we already have that rule, and it's pretty easy to follow. Ideally we change as little as possible about the writing system, while removing as many exceptions to the rules as possible.

eth/thorn could be done by instituting dh for edh... but do we really need it? It's not that common a sound, and outside of function words the rule "edh between vowels, thorn otherwise" works.

There are tons of proposals to radically reform English spelling. None of them have ever come close to implementation. The only one that has worked is the American system, and the only ones that have come close were also relatively modest proposals.

Yeah, well my attempt wasn't aimed AT ALL at preserving any othrographic tradition. The aim was to create some kind of a systematic transcription that can easily be applied to any language. I'm not even sure if I can consider it the same script as Latin, or is it merely a Latin-derived script (IPA is in a similar limbo...). Using English and developing an orthography therefore shouldn't be seen as a proposal to simplify English spelling, but rather a demonstration, a proof-of-concept.

How come hollyjew movies like Romper Stomper, American History X, Combat Girls were right about far right groups? They're nothing but self-eating, purity spiraling, cancerous places full of absolute losers and spazzes, and those movies showed this perfectly. I should have listened. I have not once heard of a successful far righter that created something other than pumping his ego about muh heritage. Not once. But I've seen plenty of retards who were ignorant, on the dole/welfare, and unaccomplished. Identifying as far right is basically a cope and larp just like Black Hebrew Israelites. I used to actually think Nazis were cool before coming to imageboards, but my experience with imageboard users has been so negative that I actually retch every time I hear a Nazi military march, or even the German language. Congratulations. 8 years ago I would have never thought of watching anti-Nazi jew revenge porn like Inglorious Basterds, now I think I will with great satisfaction. Also, name some more movies like the above.

I've decided to read a book during the weekend, and I picked Vladimir Voinovich's The Hat, a satire of Soviet society.

Yesterday I wanted to write a short biographical note on Attila József, but when I looked at the textbook, I realised it's 7-8 pages long and I decided to play Doom instead.
By the looks, he's a talentless hack who's been over-glorified by the commies.

There is one more hurdle before the matura exams, and that is the fact that a few years ago they introduced an extra requirement to even taking the exams.
Essentially, you need to do 50 hours of community service to even be able to sit down and take the exam. So I'm trying to get paperwork for this bullshit done too.
I'm pretty sure it was some Christian Democrat boomer's idea to introduce this requirement. Seriously: Fuck the ""Christian""-""Democratic"" ""People's"" ""Party"".
Nobody votes for them, but they still get government positions because they're in a coalition with Fidesz on paper, and they usually get the Ministry of Human Resources, which also includes education.

Now that Kohlchan is dead what good international imageboards are available out there? This place seems fine, but I'm lurking here for hours and not even a single post.

But the church itself isn't a person, it is an organization, moreover one that if you follow anything at all about what Jesus said puts feeding, clothing, housing and so on the poor and downtrodden at its highest mark on the to do list solely below replicating belief in itself. Going by that one could easily regard or organizer churches as large aid societies and sprawling international communes and cooperatives.

I'm guessing that part of what must've happened in Europe is that in addition to the clergy getting tied up into monarchist and feudal politics that they eventually began getting land deeds not organizationally but for individual members of the clergy, thus putting monks who really should've been more like professional medics and charity workers taking a vow of poverty into being even more useless and pompous versions of the aristocracy. That being the case it seems to me that church reform is what was always what was needed. I can also see how that would lead to the church itself becoming incredibly separated from the laity until finally reaching the point that it outwardly was jockeying for position as a pillar of the system itself because it had been bought out and coopted by nobles, and had in return spread the message of such nonsense as claiming loyalty to your "lord" was the same as loyalty to the LORD which come to think of it makes a lot of things about the wording of the KJV make sense. Speaking of which what's particularly difficult for me to imagine is how any of these peasants tolerated their king being such a murderous adulterer that he outright schismed from the Catholic Church solely to create a church that was okay with his adultery. I can never take Anglicans seriously and I strongly suspect that may be part of why England in general is such a starkly atheist country.

Just like any other organization, church can be corrupt as well, and just like in other organizations, for one decent person who genuinely cares about people and trying his best to help them there can be scores and scores of assholes who only in it for money and power. Also, despite claiming to be a non-political entity, churches were a part of politics from the very beginning, even in pre-Abrahamic times: think Egyptian priests who were a considerable political force, pretty much holding the rulers on a short leash. Judeo-Christianity is no exception, as the early Jewish priests had both legislative and tax-collecting (called "tithe") functions, which are normally associated with the state rather than the church nowadays. So, there you have it: despite ostensibly being a charity organization created with only good intentions, church also offers an opportunity to fill one's pockets, and that of course attracts a lot of people with flexible morals, who in turn the church into yet another mechanism of exploitation. This is also why I'm very skeptical about different non-religious charity organizations, especially here in Belarus, because it's extremely likely that the money they collect to help the orphans or world peace or whatever end up in bureaucrats' wallets and accounts.

Henry VIII may have been a piece of shit, but he definitely wasn't an idiot. He understood well that the church is a part of politics, so he just used it for his own ends. And peasants? Peasants were completely dependent on their landlords. So what could they do? Or rather, why should they do anything? Material needs always trump spiritual ones; after all, it doesn't matter much what confession you belong to when you're dead. There could be some trouble from more independent strata, like yeomen, but they too probably decided that they don't like the church enough to risk their well-being for it.

CoE started using vernacular at services instead of just talking Latin at a bunch of illiterate peasants. People tended to appreciate understanding what was being said over a 'tradition' that had them sitting through an hour of gobbledygook.

I'm never going to be able to see Soviet Realism in any way shape or form as anything but blatantly superior to the absolute piece of piss trash garbage that American and other modern Capitalist culture had produced, from Piss Christ, to canned tins of shit, to those fucking abomination sculptures of I think he's Brazilian and look like malformed drops of molten lead that somehow was perverted into being even more crass and tasteless, to bubblegum pop and most 80s music, to most of Warhol, to most of Marcel DuChamp, to just on and on up to and including whatever the fucking hell you call nuStar Wars and capeshit. This is all the more evident of our blatant inferiority in the realm of painting with SocRealist bullshit. Was it actually good? Well no maybe not, but compared to just about every single MoMA installation it sure as hell was.

Besides which what I've found so far is that a lot of Soviet artists, composers and so on were kept on a pretty loose leash by the Party. They all pretty much seemed to basically only have to be all yeah yeah and Marx Lenin blah blah whatever to get crap past the censors and get funding from the state apparatus. I also have long suspected that the USSR would've just chilled out had the roles been reversed and much of the Capitalist world collapsed by the mid 90s. We may not have had as many cool vidya games on the one hand, but I still have doubt that the USSR wouldn't be producing computer games anyway and besides which we probably just lost out on a lot of supremely awesome technical and scientific advances as a result.
