>>25816439 What he said is actually very relevant for the modern society due to increasing population densities around the globe. A comfortable life absent of any real problems or any actual work in which a man is able to see the result of his sweat is a life never meant for humans. There's a reason densely populated areas increase antisocial behavior in all of the people there.
>>25816804 He posted about it on some forums. I saw the posts. He also read about behavioral sink I think.
>>25816905 It's a side effect of autism. Nothing you'd wish for yourself or anyone else if you knew.
>>25816439 You see, all these anarchists deemed crazed and evil by the media, all share one common, unifying viewpoint regardless of their other beliefs: society simply can't be, as it strictly goes against human nature. People like Lanza, the Unabomber, etc., realized that utopia is unachievable, and those who believe it isn't are disillusioned by society itself.
Are they wrong? I don't know. But then I look at the pornography and entertainment industry; they're there to pacify.
>>25817077 Oh and to add to that: do you know that childrens shows with bright colors and funny sounds don't actually teach children anything and that the producers know it? What they actually do is take advantage of the involuntary attention of children that focuses on anything new and strange to them. Their mind is programmed to learn and pay attention to anything that stands out, and these shows literally trap them into wasting this crucial ability on staring at a screen. This makes money for the companies and gives free time to childrens parents who now also think their child is getting smarter.
>>25817150 The very fact that we'd be bored to death of our lives if not for these industries is exactly what I'm talking about. These industries are basically drugs to condition our minds to function in a situation it wouldn't be able to otherwise.
>>25817121 Money isn't like an endless spring for everybody to draw from though. It's a balance of power throughout the world by what resources are existing and who has control of them.
And I guess maybe there are some people who can see that happening but can also see how futile it is for them to work to get there. Lanza was NEET and knew he didn't have any kind of fulfilling future ahead of him. He had been deemed handicapped by society, but he still had the perceptiveness not to be content with that.
>>25817227 From a quality of life standpoint, yes. But we have gotten a lot of things from industrialization and technological advances. The best realistic future in my view is one where we automate all industries and go back to a preindustrial work life while robots make all our shit
>>25817267 that would honestly make things worse, dumbass. humanity is at it's core still deeply rooted in basic Darwin theory. which means that being coddled by robots and being handed everything by them simply won't work
>>25817226 >Money isn't like an endless spring for everybody to draw from though ??
How is that relevant?
>>25817227 There is nothing that is 'needed' to be done. Not a single thing 'needs' to happen. Shit just does.
Life quality lowered with the advent of agriculture so the common understanding that it was adopted because it made life easier is a misconcenption. What really was the deciding factor was stability and safety. Static civilizations were just that much more effective at spreading and having large populations than mobile cultures.
>>25817267 A troublefree life would be hell. Nothing short of artificial sense of fulfillment derived from various forms of entertainment to keep the mind from collapsing.
From an individual standpoint humanity truly was at its greatest during hunter gatherer societies.
>>25817479 A small group of people spending money on advertising in a rich first world country doesn't say anything about society as a whole.
And there's this thing I'm getting from you which is that only demand affects the available products, and I don't think that's the case.
>There is nothing that is 'needed' to be done. Not a single thing 'needs' to happen. Shit just does. That's a really Darwinist way of viewing things, but without action you could still have things like rampant spree shootings and violence epidemics.
Even structured movements like socialism are natural human behavior. If people see superfluous populations or rising mental health issues as a problem, I think society could welcome some kind of coordinated change in response to that.
Not in the form of robots doing everything, because those who own the factory equipment would typically rather have a NEET die in the street than pay for him, regardless of how much extra income he has. I think most people see that kind of power balance as just (maybe from western social conditioning).
>>25817717 >A small group of people spending money on advertising in a rich first world country doesn't say anything about society as a whole. What point of mine are you exactly referring to, with this one?
>and I don't think that's the case. Well then expand on why you don't think that's the case.
>but without action you could still have things like rampant spree shootings and violence epidemics. I don't view history and the progress humanity has made as the result of conscious effort of a few individuals. I view it as a natural process where the 'progress' it has made, the complexity it has gained as dictated by what is effective and what not, is inevitable. I don't attribute much importance to historical individuals or events in how our current society functions. Sure if Rome theoretically didn't fall the current world may have been geopolitically different but inherently it'd be exactly the same.
It's kinda nihilist I guess. >If people see superfluous populations or rising mental health issues as a problem, I think society could welcome some kind of coordinated change in response to that. Coordinated effort is never simply created. Major changes only ever happen if there's a huge shift as dictated, again, by simply what is effective and what not. Monarchies didn't get abolished because people suddenly thought "hey isn't it kinda ridiculous how we're ruled by people deemed better than us simply due to their birth?" but simply because society reached a stage in which familial ties came in the way of the new capitalist system which was only possible due to technological and scientific advances made.
People ascribe too much of what's happening to random events and situational occurrences. They fail to see the similarities of seemingly different events and hence they also fail to see the rules behind them. They attribute stuff to wrong things and also pay attention to wrong things. It's also why we've never learned from history and never will.
>>25817793 >get them hyperfocused then spam them with advertisements so they nag their parents for some plastic garbage. teach them to be good goys before they start preschooL
It's more about playing commercials for the parents because they know that shit is just playing in the background 24/7. I swear the easiest way to spot a stupid poor person is having a tv on in the background
>>25818337 I may have went on an irrelevant tangent here a bit.
>>25817793 >teach them to be good goys before they start preschool You mean teach them how to sit still and listen to bullshit 95% of which they won't be remembering for longer than a week, much less actually putting to use one day?
