Define "massive" because I get the impression your whole country doesn't hit the positivity rate of just my city.

To me it's like wearing a rubber. Just because I got no one pregnant or caught an STD doesn't make me less retarded but I already said my piece on civility.

Holy shit this thread is a dumpsterfire. All I'm going to say is it really made the zombie shows and games I play come into a different light where I thought how unrealistic they are for saying a slow zombie apocalypse could happen. America would definitely be among the first to fall even with our guns.

>Define "massive" because I get the impression your whole country doesn't hit the positivity rate of just my city.

Ireland is 90% vaccinated, the highest in Europe. My village is basically so small it is one maine street, 2 shops and 2 pubs, the outbreak here has been so big that everything has been shut down for 2-3 weeks.

My workplace is closed for 3 weeks, all childrens' activities have been suspended for 3 weeks (camogie, hurling, soccer and gaelic) and the only things left open in my village is the 2 shops and the chipper.

I'd also like to point out that while this nonsense has been going on for the last year, suicide has become an epidemic in Ireland. People killing themselves left right and centre.

People have become slaves to convenience and fear

The same people who were ranting to me 10 years ago about the Lisbon treaty stripping us of our rights and the New World Order and the global pedo elite society gladly took the vaxx no questions asked. It's as if they lost their will to fight back and just caved in and wanted only convenience.

Maybe they were just afraid, maybe they had just been beaten into compliance through the media campaigns and fearmongering

I've been beaten by all these things too but the difference is I believe that when in doubt the best course of action is do to nothing and ride it out rather than accept the ((truth)) from people you know to be liars and get experimental gene therapies injected into you

If I die from Covid then I'll accept it, my life is in God's hands and I can only do what I feel is the right thing.

The problem is that THE scientific method is a simplification, a mere conceptuality. Too bad I don't understand Ian Hacking really, but I guess what most people on the internet think about when talking about science is Popper. But Popper is debatable. The results that are produced are patchy as hell. It is even debatable that science works in the way of conducting a scientific method by book. Theory and practice are different and perhaps taken ideally by certain philosophies of science.

That's Western lack of holistic, perspective because it is truncative rather than integrative. Partly it's a problem with Western scientific methodology itself through needing controls and reproducibility but is also a mindset thing. It is the mentality of seeing legs and breaking it down to segments than seeing how not just the butterfly works as a whole but also how the butterfly itself is only an extension of interedependent systems. It is the result of Western individualism mentality. I'd even go so far as to argue that it's rooted in Abrahamic theological views of things trying to trace it back to its true origins, and that it could be somehow rooted in out linguistics if not vice versa.

It's something that drives me crazy about Western science, which is very much a not seeing the trees for the forest type of a mindset and is why only recently we have begun working on superior theorizing such as systems and chaos theory to explain why and how dynamic overlapping and interconnected systems work, like say climatology, meteorology, the carbon cycle, geological records etc. This makes a lot of Western moderns complete and total ass at understanding things like economics, climate change, meteorology, and pandemics because they are solely using inferior linear thinking of, at best, point A goes to point B which leads to outcome C, if they even are capable of thinking that far ahead. This leads them to being perpetually surprised and ignorant about a great many things the average person should've seen coming from miles away, like say how climate change is directly leading to our highest level national security threats in the very near future, or why neoliberal globalism is a pants on head retarded ideology. They might eventually figure out it is a bad thing eventually, but usually not until it is already happening to them, and certainly not why X is a bad thing let alone how a bad thing like X could possibly happen.

The problem with such a top-down approach is though that by observing the system as a "whole" it's easy to jump to the wrong conclusions because you explicitly didn't even try to get to the root and thus some effect you see might be caused by something you don't know yet, yet you still have to explain it.
Also, you're talking about "western science", as is there were any other kind. Do you think the chinese who invented black powder did some holistic mumbo jumbo calling their gods and considering the socio-economic processes leading to coal and sulfur mining and then got the solution presented? No, it was trial and error, just like everyone else before and after them. The reason why it's the way of doing science is because it's effective and through the controls and reproducibility mindset can also stand to review. If it can't be reproduced, it is my duty, as a scientist, to question it.
There just ARE some things that you can't completely handwave away on a cultural basis. Take striking martial arts for an example. A punch is a punch, no matter if it's boxing, muay thai or whatever kind of kung fu. Why? Because humans are, despite all superficial and cultural differences, still made up of the same kind of bones and therefore there is, indeed, a right and a wrong way to punch. And the right way just developed independently from each other because it's directly connected to the human physiology. Same with music. Making sounds in an organized way is also something that has developed among all humans. Even the aborigines who have, in their thousands of years of history, merely invented little more than a stick, have also invented a hollow stick you can make really cool music with. How would you approach that in a "holistic" way? You can't, you have to go granular, right into the human mind.

I was confused what you're talking about until checking once again and realizing you meant the fourth pic. How marvelous. It's like such stupid shitposts make my eyes glaze over so much now it doesn't even consciously register and I solely saw the first 3 pics.

Poses an interesting question where the marketing retards finally can do away with even pretense of talents altogether and the corporations can simply maintain high profit margins and control without even bothering to sign IP right deals, however I question how much it would become popular for the same reason people have moved away from everything like Hollywood, the recording industry, AAA gaming and so on. Of course large market segments are always going to be the same mouthbreathers who will believe anything no matter how transparently stupid or psychotic without even questioning it so long as enough critical mass of other idiots takes it seriouslyapparently one of the top news stories is some missing young blond woman like who gives a shit why does anyone care about this but I still question the success of a thing like that even under market liberalism.

You also seem to be assuming things will run smoothly for mostly the rest of this century which is laughable. I fell asleep listening to leutin talk 40K lore which apparently came out with hilariously good timing

>Ultimately, I think racists played the long game and won.
They really truly didn't. Everything after the UTR rally was a total disaster.

Moreover they weren't playing the long game and were pretty damn low IQ for "5D chessmasters." Trump was a short term sacrifice for long term victory. In Tarot it would be described as a reversal
>A seemingly total victory that hides within it the seeds of crushing and final defeat
Likewise for liberalism, when Trump when it clearly was

Perhaps I wasn't clear by my last line. It was the racists on imageboards that steadfastly held the line and kept their messaging consistent throughout the years which drove away non-racists and even embarrassed liberals who were unprepared to respond to them. The only boards on 4krebs that happen to be liberal or left-wing these days are /his/, /mu/ and /lit/, and even /his/ and /lit/ still happens to have racists from time to time.

I disagree with the notion that "pretending racism is over" would be the winning move because, if the respective careers of anti-racist activists like Tim Wise, Jane Elliott, Robin DiAngelo, Ibram X. Kendi and others I can't be bothered to recall are any indication, fighting racism is an evermoving goalpost. They have redefined racism to mean literally anything that puts colored people in a disadvantageous position even if its in done entirely according to the rules of equality. This is why they have now shifted the discourse away from equality to equity. It's why conversations with anti-racists ultimately end in failure when you play by their rules. Blowing up the game and saying "White people have interests" is a far more viable strategy.

In terms of actualizing real life political goals, you are correct that the right got high on their own supply and impulsively took an opening when everyone should've hesitated and carefully calculated the next big move. Complacency is death, and that was another critical error on part of the right. Instead of playing like they're losing, they got reckless. No one argues that UTR wasn't a total shitshow, and ironically, the fallout couldn't have divided the right more. There was the era of infighting known as the Optics War which Groypers / AmNats openly feuded with alt-righters / WNs over who ruined everything when it should've been the opportunity where differences were put aside and resources pooled together to fight common enemies.

Pretty sure that was the plague of Justinian which was y. pestis iirc. There have been many others taken down by smallpox. It's amazing to me how dumb people were to oppose the smallpox vaccination and elimination campaign. That one virus did more damage to us as a species than all our wars combined, and it along with plague are two of our species most mortal enemies that always had been holding us back.

Really the entire bedrock of modernity is a combination of fossil fuels and modern medicine, and you needed both. If you have one without the other you basically just plunge back into a more comfortable medieval era. Empires were frequently stricken by one pox or another, and often one calamity followed in footsteps of another which is why Pestilence's companions were famine, war, and death. Spanish flu and black death both followed war which helped incubate and spread them everywhere, followed by surging through economic routes like arteries into every major urban zone and outpost. Where a pestilence began first, often food supply would collapse, it would trigger the roiling strifes to boil over into open war. Any one of these things could take down a decaying empire, but the combination of all three will often spell the doom of the old order.

Now that I think about it I dont know what took down different caliphates and Islamic empires. I do know for sure though that the Black Death was the second major plague epidemic, with most scholars seeming to agree that the 7th or 8th century Plague of Justinian was the first known recorded outbreak.

They want to go big by way of searching for a big investor player that has enough resources to implement a long-term strategy to attract more customers and rip them off their money. No big players want to do pimping as its marginal increase in revenue is as little as the brains of those who think it's a good business.

The actual reason is that, just like with e.g. Pornhub, there was a lot of questionable content. Underaged, animals, and so on, which is why e.g. Pornhub was given a hard time by the feds.

(I know that this thread might look like it's made by an immature specimen that does not know how humanity works, which is absolutely true.)
I want to ask Ernst about attention seekers and about the ways to effectively deal with them.
First i wanted to describe what sort of person i usually call an attention whore.
An attention whore:
>Talks a lot about meaningless stuff and himself.
>Will start an argument over nothing.
>Will gaslight you and play a victim.
>Will troll with stupidity and shitposts.
>Surrounds himself with weak-minded people who are somehow impressed with his behavior.
>Extremely materialistic and superficial.
>Has masochistic tendencies.
Now the last point i would like to elaborate on. An attention seeker LOVES when someone beats the crap out of him. He likes being a victim, he likes being insulted, assaulted, he literally enjoys it. Such a person will commit a mass shooting or a suicide or both, with one sole goal: to get noticed.

In fairness, the person I have seen bitching the most over the years about errant threads that did not fit into his mental schema is that Russian Ernst who posts walls of text about games nobody ever played.

The Americans here never struck me as the EC police, but the Russians definitly struck me as the fun police.

I can't tell the difference between journos and pundits since I haven't followed main stream media in about 15 years. They all look the same to me and since I have dealt with a few journos in real life in that time I can safely say they will not touch anything that does not amount to solid clickbait, regardless of morality.
No. 59852 Kontra
Clickbait is a fundamental structural problem. When print media dies, no one pays subscriptions, and all fees and income gained by advertiser clicks, and everything is privatized and for profit, well then this becomes the only outcome. Either you end up needing to have something like PBS or BBC or whomever doing documentaries and the reporting, or you find a different economic model for the private business of media, otherwise the only outcome is solely printing the most outrage inducing articles with the most outrageous headlines and everything basically just becomes monetized shitposting. As people's expectations sink likewise, it becomes a race to the bottom.

On some fundamental level this is the same problem or similar to AAA games and Hollywood I like to bitch about so much. If what is most reliably profitable in mass media is truly Idioctacy tier and the public is uneducated or flat out dumb on top of it, then everything becomes geared toward most mass appeal and/or most controversy.

People don't get banned for posting like OP. They do get banned for OPs like

Those of you who took part in the radio festival 2 weeks ago likely are familiar with the Ernstalbum. This is a collection of songs performed by Ernst - usually by picking an instrumental version of a well known song and singing your own lyrics to it. The idea started after Ernst recorded a fun song, and that song was in german, so the whole thing went to be an all-germ affair. Since Ernstalbum v1 is now complete and Ernst on /b/ has already started working on new material we were thinking about including /int/ for a potential second album, maybe even making a virtual 2-side record with one german and one international side.

Would anyone be interested in contributing to such a project? If yes: There's absolutely no need to rush anything - work on the Ernstalbum took about 1.5 years with various periods of inactivity inbetween, so take all the time you need. Also there are no restrictions on what (or how much) to deliver. It can be any genre, obviously it doesn't need to be properly produced and it can be serious or audio shitposting, anything is fine. It can also be instrumental as well, so if you don't wanna sing that's fine, too. So in case you're in on the project, do your thing and then either post the result in the thread or keep it for yourself as a surprise entry until the whole thing is presented. Either case it would be nice to announce a potential contribution in the thread so that other people see things are habbening. Presenting Ernstalbum during the radio festival was a fun event and we'll probably aim for something similar again, so there's no timeline yet.

Ernstalbum v1 is available for download (with one exception the songs are all german though): https://mega.nz/file/sRthQQIS#Lce6to4D_BdTV3jkIn8zK5Rhr5h5kM-MiFgiF9GiBZE

Pagan Altar - Mythical & Magical

This album might be one of the greatest Heavy Metal albums ever recorded. Honestly, I don't think I could conjure enough words of praise to heap on this album, so I'll leave it to the fine folks at Metal-Archives to do the job for me:

One highlight for me is, ironically, one of the album's less heavier moments "The Crowman". The song perfectly blends Folk and Rock in between all those infectious bluesy licks that transcends time itself and inspires nostalgia for music from eras gone by. And to think this was recorded and released in 2006:
