I enjoyed the resurfacing topic of talent in Hyouka. While it doesn't really say anything deep, the topic itself was presented well enough. It really is suffering to be around people with talent. I can't remember which other series talked about this but I remember discussing this very topic on /a/ before. Possibly Sakurasou, not sure.

That is kinda the point. The source anime, Excel Saga, is a slapstick comedy where that girl wages war against the entire world as part of an secret evil organisation. Each of the episodes is a parody of a single genre or has some other catch. The episode in question was a parody about B-grade action movies where such silly and deep-sounding things were suddenly stuffed in out of nowhere.

Long story short, the purpose of that picture was not to be a good bit of wisdom but instead contain a deliberately bad and oversentimental quote. It was used as an attempt at humour, understood by the people who have seen the anime.

That is actually not deep at all, but it's not supposed to be. One of the great achievments of Hyouka is the evolution of how Houtarou views thing, talent included. During the events of the posted image he was in a very dark place, his ego was pretty much crashed, and so he had very pessimistic view of the matter. But if he had the same conversation by the end of the series his response would have been entirely different.

yeah sorry should have just quotted you. Anyway I don't think gloomy Houtarou would have worked out very well, he has no chemistry with the rest of the cast in a state like that.

I liked more the moment he realised he was not special, when the world lost all it's colour. And it's not like anything too dramatic happend, but I think everyone can sympathise with him because receiving such a heavy blow to your ego is pretty much a universal thing.

"If the theory of fundamental good is an ideal, the theory of fundamental evil is simple realism. Desire lies at the core of human nature. And humans are ruled by those desires. That was the less tactful theory of Xun Zi. He claimed that humans are born evil. Thus, if a person does good, that is not their true self, but a lie. That was his theory. It would be a lie, a fake, and due only to hypocrisy...Phony. And thus, by definition, deliberate.He said all good is thereby hypocrisy, and therefore one must make a deliberate attempt to be good.
Given the real thing and an indistinguishable fake, which is worth more? The real thing and a fake...Naturally, my response was that the real thing is worth more.
Although Oshino-kun asserted they have an equal value.
But here is Kaiki-kun's argument: The fake is of far greater value. In its deliberate attempt to be real, it's more "real" than the real thing."

Bro, being chuuni is fucking awesome. Look all the sites on the internet. You have forums full of users that are pantsu on head retarded. People who try to be funny or act mature while they're actually all fresh out of middle school. People who know nothing on a topic but "contribute" to the topic anyway.

When I come on here... I like to think that the average anon is someone who, while able to act maturely, has a great sense of humour and is always, always ready to passionately pour his emotions out on any subject no matter how embarrassing it might be. And that is amazing in itself.

Are you seriously asking why a High School boy isn't ripping of all his clothes and living off the land? Or why he's not dropping out of school to pursue his rock band of some shit? It's obviously because he doesn't have the skills or resources to do those things - he literally has no choice in the matter. Sure he could drop out and scrape by on online freelance work or something but the path he's currently on promises much better returns in exchange for stomaching things he finds objectionable. Just like literally anything else in life.

Not everyone has some weird hate boner which makes them incapable of accepting and enjoying a free ride.

But really that's mostly a rant about how humans should be responsible for their own accomplishments and failures and a 'cat god' is an insult to that philosophy but that's bullshit. No matter what a person accomplishes in life it's done on the backs of hundreds or thousands of other people. There is no 'individual achievement' because humans are social creatures and our lives are inexorably tied to one another. Even doing nothing - posting on /a/ - is dependent on a society to provide electricity...

You're right. I still think having a negative outlook on life is the basis of a hopeful life. If you only expect the worst, then everytime you hope for something, that something is better than your expectations. When facts validate your hopes, then it validates the part of you that is hopeful. When facts validate your expectations, then you were right, so good for you.
Hoping for good things to happen and expecting bad things to happen (while preparing for them) isn't mutually exclusive.

Sure, because Beethoven just sat down in front of a piano one day and could play really well instead of being forced by his father to practice for hours every day from the age of six. Or basically any other good pianist for that matter.

It's more an adage to not let yourself give up because some people seem to be intrinsically talented or unnaturally lucky.

>NEETs concerned over employment, technological inventions, scientific development, social lives or culture
I don't think you know what NEETs are. Also, this kind of future describes modern cultures, like Japan, right now. Unemployment is rampant, NEETs are being common, men and woman aren't interested in marriage or families, despite needing a stable population to maintain their society and suicides are still higher in comparison to other countries.

Do you really think people who are concerned over these societal issues are advocating shunning society? Because they seem to want the opposite, they want to invoke change.
>>
>>113855530
"Hard work" is an excuse for the 99% of people so they don't feel bad when no matter what they'll do, they'll never succeed.
>>
>>113855467
Those are special cases and no reason to give up. Unless you're obsessed with being the best, having a better does not invalidate your work and effort. A talented hard worker would get nowhere if everyone else simply gave up and refused to try. It's sort of shitty but it is why being humble is generally considered a positive thing.

Success is subjective and largely influenced by society as well. Getting by and being happy could be one person's success and hard work can, in the right societies, provide that. The world isn't perfect and you'll have to deal with finding out that everything people have promised you is not what you're going to get, but you have to adjust or it will drive you crazy. That's not to say society isn't screwing everyone over for the benefit of the upper elite, but that is an entirely different subject.

being successful =/= being good at something

To become successful, neither talent nor hard work are particularly important, being lucky/good at selling whatever shit you produce is.

To become good at (i.e. produce constant above average results at) something requieres hard work first and foremost.

Sure. It's just that for most people (see >>113855359 ) success is measured by the amount of money you earn/people who know your name.
If you believe being able to produce better results at something than most other people are capable of (or even just to produce something that you yourself are happy with, no matter how it compares to anything else) I definitely support that. At least I think obtaining happiness is a lot easier that way.
