Take a shit in a theatre, masturbate in public infront of children, piss on people who disagree with you.

He was a nutter.

>>
>>520778

>>
>>521176

21th Century Diogenes.
>>
By being as Diogenes was: a crazy, yet well-educated and literate homeless dude. You'd have to take up writing quite a bit, Diogenes was actually a fairly prolific writer.
>>
>>521438
Pretty sure Diogenes isn't an expert in 'taking credit for others' and 'freeloading'
>>
Be homeless and critique ideology.
>>
>>520220
do you want to be actual diogenes, society's perception of diogenes, or your perception of diogenes? or a mix of all three? diogenes had to become diogenes too. become through doing and be through becoming.
>>
Become a lolicon
>>
>>521451
How did he get ink and paper?
>>
>>522221
I'd assume he either scrounged it or borrowed it. As I recall he was fairly well renowned.
>>
>>521451

Where can I read some of his writings?
>>
>>521624
>diogenes had to become diogenes too.
Before Diogenes was Diogenes, did he wish to be Diogenes?
>>
>>520220
Go ahead, join the homeless and crackheads down at the loser alley. You fucking bums,I won't be missing any of you. Who the fuck wants to be some homeless idiot
>>
>>523386
All of his writings got lost in time.Sorry anon
>>
Masturbate in public
>>
How does one pronounce Diogenes? Never heard anyone say it out loud.

In my head I say Die-odge-in-ees
>>
Become a crust punk and spend a lot of time at the library.

>>

>>
Be homeless and shit on society.
>>
In the great tradition of Diogenes, I put out a message on Craigslist looking for honest people.

So far I've gotten three messages and I'm going to email them back and call them scoundrels.
>>
>>524257
I wonder who would win in a shitposting contest between Voltaire and Diogenes
>>
>>524326
can you post it all here pls
>>
Why do people idolize this man based on a few trivial historical anecdotes, most of which are likely bullshit? Is it because it's easier to meme a philosopher whose writings were lost to the ages, since you don't have to actually know anything about their thought processes?
>>
>>524402
No fucking shit do you think you're being insightful by saying it?

Slave to your will just like your old mate schope said.

He was known to have written many books and papers, however none are known to have survived to present day.

He is fat as fuck, one of Diogenes principles was to train the body in order to gain virtue. He openly mocked fat rich nobles.
