Manifesto of Kohlzine:
Our culture is in danger. Serious discussions are slowly dying out and shitposting is rampant. One may ask: Why worry? Why even care? But our answer is simple: Because most of us don't want to feel like shit anymore. A culture of outrage and anger is destroying us.
The irony here is that we often need to deal with our discomfort in order to be ourselves. That's the paradox of being shitposters – we can't hide our shitposting, we have to show it all. And a culture of anger makes us feel trapped, unconfident – and it makes us feel less like real people. But the same dynamic drives some of the most creative and funny internet-savvy people you meet through Casey today. As with the rest of the internet, they don't want to think too much about what they're saying as well as what they're posting – they simply want to do something with their eyes, and the things they feel.
We appeal to the Bernds. Only they should listen, and only they can understand what we have to say. We appeal to those who are thirsty for the serious, the factual, the enlightening. We want to sing the love of serious discussion, the habit of high energy and effort. In an effort to preserve serious discussions and bring back Bernds motivation for serious posting we commit ourself to this endeavour. Shall this little zine be a light in the dark, and shine the path back to serious discussions.
Yours truly, Bernds
