Some nice music documentary about the German alternative Rock scene of the 60s and 70s, also known as Krautrock.

Krautrock - The Rebirth of Germany
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP5dOKTB3ng

Here's a little shorter video about Krautrock as well.

I've held out on mentioning his content until now, but I feel the breath, depth, and consideration of multiple viewpoints is with enough earnest effort to warrant calling it an educational documentary. And is about as KC-tier of an documentary as one could imagine.

If only he was a tad more consistent in explicitly providing sources in the Youtube description rather than through other channels.

Could be in the philosophy thread as well. Interesting for anybody who likes philosophy but is also interested in technology and science.

https://vimeo.com/156520798

It has english subtitles.
>A philosopher without an image
>Gilbert Simondon (1924-1989), a French philosopher as mysterious as he is important, is one of those who, as the saying goes, "were wrong to be right too soon". A thinker of technology and future, he created concepts in the 1960s to tell our world. His language resonates with the most utopian of contemporary proposals for a new pact between nature and technology. Read in his time by only a few close friends, including Gilles Deleuze, it is now translated throughout the world.
>Like no one else, he appears alone, fragile, always on the verge of rupture, but also endearing and honest. From him, we have no image, but from his thought, there are "place-moments" which are the visible point of his philosophy. From Lecce to Brest, from CERN in Geneva to the prehistoric caves of the Mas d'Azil, from the Collège de France to the mills of Flanders, thinkers recount how their journey was transformed by their encounter with Simondon. Lives and theories come together to tell the singularity of an approach.
>A haunting question comes to mind: what are the reasons that could have so obscured such a masterful work whose relevance and humanity enlighten us today?

This is something I've been realizing lately, namely that the welfare state is always going to be a feature in neoliberalism or most kinds of Capitalism frankly because it's ultimately not just less effort but also probably cheaper to do so rather than having to constantly put down rebellions and social strife by giving people parts of their money back to them. It is basically using public resources as bribery which largely strains the middle class but in such a way the middle class is bound to evaporate eventually thus leading to the collapse of that society anyway.

This realization came soon after I had the greater realization that all the prosperity talked about in the West is not in fact due to Capitalism like I had previously assumed, but rather in spite of Capitalism due to technical advances. It amazes me just how much Commie societies have managed to get their shit together after all kinds of society ruining events and circumstances. That it's own right isn't an endorsement of Communism mind you, but just pointing out the fact that had the Communists won the Cold War they'd probably still be living lives of plenty on some modern level while we all remained a bunch of impoverished third world shitholes in the wect.

Realistically speaking, poverty still existing at all is largely an artifact of the failures of this socio-economic system and points towards its general inferiority for a society because it is explicitly not designed to benefit society directly but rather that small globalist elite. Like what the hell kind of system uses quasi futuristic robots doing all our tasks while making people poorer and with access to fewer resources? Why the hell would we kick half of society onto the streets if we found a way to replace half their tasks? It's insanity. Why would the costs of production keep going down but the costs of everything else keep going up?

>Who defines what a nation is? You said it yourself "for many centuries." This implies that it was created at some point.
"Nation" in its modern sense is actually a rather young concept which came about during the age of enlightment and was first (in parts) realized during/following the French revolution with the idea of a republic of citizens with the same rights as opposed to the rule of kings and aristocrats.

I'd say state is refering to a sovereign government over a territory. Nation is indeed a young concept and is coupled with a patriotic believe of a community that oftentimes equals in it's scope that of the state territory.
A state is more a legal body and a form of organization whereas a nation is an emotional referent that works as orientation for identity. A frenchman develops pride in his Republic because it seem to have a certain characteristics he can identify with. Ofc these are rather general and it's a homogenization that never works out empirically as it is dreamed of.

>The cheapest sort of pride is national pride; for if a man is proud of his own nation, it argues that he has no qualities of his own of which he can be proud; otherwise he would not have recourse to those which he shares with so many millions of his fellowmen. The man who is endowed with important personal qualities will be only too ready to see clearly in what respects his own nation falls short, since their failings will be constantly before his eyes. But every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud adopts, as a last resource, pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and glad to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.

He isn't even taking that many out. He's only pulling a fraction of the military which frankly any so called liberal or leftist ought to be applauding. We waste trillions on this bullshit.

I was thinking about it while taking a break smoking today and realized that with the amount of money we waste on the military industrial complex I and everybody else could be living rent free. This is because I realized that that trillions dollar bailout that funneled $600-minus taxes (yes our unemployment gibes is taxed income btw) on UI benefits plus the $1200 check ultimately was not actually a bailout for Americans, it was a bailout to the landlords.

All of that money was basically just going to people so they could keep paying rent, in which case basically the property owners are all a middleman who doesn't really do anything.

Why shouldn't we just have the government build buildings for people to live in and then have people pay taxes for it while cutting out the middleman? It just seems from a business standpoint like a really inefficient and wasteful business model with superfluous leeching from the system.

Why the fuck would anyone defend an drug addicted nigger who overdosed under police custody? And holy shit, people want to have that poor cop jailed for doing his job on keeping the society safe, only because he have the unlucky of having the nigger dying near him. How can someone look at some shit like this and think its justice? If you support this nigger life matter shit, i must ask you; dont you feel ashamed of being such a distorced morals?

You know what you are doing by posting like this here. It comes across as being deliberately inflammatory. EC culture is different to many imageboards where posters try to bump their thread to to the top by being deliberately inflammatory and by posting bait. Seeing that you didn't just create the thread and leave, I'll give you my honest opinion.

Firstly, I do not support black lives matter.
George Floyd was indeed not a very good person. However, I do think that the police officer in question used unnecessary force. This is where my sympathy with the protesters/rioters ends. I see the underlying (unconscious?) purpose of the movement as a whole as just the strengthening of progressive political power.

Actual police abolition (as some anarchists imagine) would be the abolition of the modern state. This would result in anarchy, vigilante justice, and revenge killings.
Now we can debate about this all we want, but I think any such abolition should involve a very gradual change spurred on by incentives (cultural, economic, etc.). When I went up north in the countryside to buy certain foods and goods in rural Canada, there was no owner on site, just a donation box and various goods labelled with prices. The owner of the farm had the expectation that I would pay the appropriate price for the goods, and not just steal the goods and money outright. There was mutual trust between me and owner, and an expectation of a general "good will" between people. The state has no role here. I cannot be punished if I break the law, and the law is essentially meaningless here.

How do I stop being low IQ?
>>
No. 42972
"IQ" as a concept is much more hardwired. Your overall capacity for certain things like pattern recognition if you were a truly stupid individual would always be diminished and you'd always have to work harder, however it is still possible to overcome one's own limitations through hard work, at times in a way that "smarter" individuals will not namely because they are lazier. It reminds me, loosely, of Napoleon complex guys achieving much while the handsome jock may while away his time getting laid and being debauched and thus fail later in life, or the tortoise and the hare, or the story of Mike Tyson. You see Tyson got bullied a lot as a kid and his chief motivation for becoming a fighter and the first fight he got in was because some kid ripped off his pet pigeon's head. Now he's world heavy weight champion and can afford to keep as many pigeons as he fucking wants and be left in peace.

There is a degree to which one can always compensate for their deficits, and often times people will end up vastly overcompensating for them. The overwhelming underriding drive here is "I'm still not good enough." So basically while someone else might be doing stupid shit like getting high and playing videogames while engaging in pointless navel gazing with their high school buddies, if you maintain that internalized drive to better yourself it's possible the allegedly IQ120 kid is just going to atrophy into mediocrity at best, whereas you otoh will have bettered yourself into being a well read and perhaps scholarly man. The difference is just that you'll have way more difficulty in that area, chiefly of overcoming your own frustrations and converting that anger into Drive.

Yo can't my friend.

Best thing to do is accept your limitations, your natural settis, and make the best of your life.

Of course you may now ask "how do I know my settis"? That indeed is a difficult question to answer. My best suggestion would be to gather a big enough sample and take it from there. It is true that if you don't play the game then you can't lose, but you can also never know your "true self". So I guess, essentially what I'm saying is "just break out of your comfort zone" lol. Get in touch with your inadequacy and accept it, heh. Not much else you can do.

'In culo alla balena' lit. In the whales arse (good luck). Like in 'in bocca al lupo' (wolves mouth*) it functions like break a leg in English. Thespians for you.

'Al verde' lit. to the green (broke). Candles in Italy had a green base that was revealed as you burnt them down. To the green meant you were burning your candles to their last.

'Avere le braccine corte' lit. to have short arms (stingy). The mental image is of someone who can't reach their own pocket.

I'm sure there's a lot of expressions, phrases, and idioms in English that sound weird as fuck in other languages but obviously I can't think of them because they're all normal to me. Probably a lot of them have to do with things like pissing in the wind, don't piss on my leg, things like that. I still think that probably my favorite Russian phrases are either God's forgotten village or basically something to do with proofstering "yes yes Russia put shit in your ass" to put shit in my pants.

I wouldn't relate attention issues with discomfort caused by slowness of EC.
Posting and lurking on KC was pretty fast, you received your replies very fast - that caused yoir brain pumpin dopamine earlier and more often. So your dopamine level on average was pretty high.
And, if we take what's written in Wikipedia,
>and many addictive drugs increase dopamine release or block its reuptake into neurons following release.
KC was helluva drug. And everyone decides for himself how to deal with the issue of the lack of dopamine.

You're bitching about all this while bumping a lone k*hl thread for whatever reason. Maybe the problem isn't the thread, but you my friend. Have you considered trying to engage in any of the other threads going back 25 pages instead of a cabbage tier shitposting thread?

As for the board itself it's a good way to start weaning yourself off internet addiction. I am perpetually embarrassed at how severely I have wasted my life on the dumb shithole that was KC. Anything after like 2014 was complete garbage yet I stuck around for years because you can hit refresh. If you want to see what that garbage leads us you can check out wherever the cabbagetard pedo network moved these days or 4kanker. I'm sure either will be brilliantly edifying and not filled with sick fucks and sad retards.

If anything it has shown me how pathetic IBs not are, not become, but always were. I wasted the better part of my youth on this trash and pity anyone who wasnt at least dating girls or going out to bars like I was, or building careers. I'd imagine anyone who didn't even have that would be fertile grounds for implanting any moronic ideology whatsoever provided it made them feel good or a pretend sense of belonging that's totally fake and based on flimsy pretenses while feeding them nonstop misinformation, hate, and envy.
