I'm a fucking idiot, /pol/.

I'm a 19 year old American idiot who doesn't know shit about shit.

When I lurk on this board, you guys are constantly having extensive arguments about history and current events. What I'd like to know is how. Where do you get all your information from? How do you keep up with all the modern issues in politics, economics, science, etc.?

I'd just like to be more conscious and informed.

I would also recommend the following YouTube videos:

step one:find an interest
step two:research it (watching youtube documentaries are simple and easy)

I'm 18 and for the past two years i've been watching a documentary a night on any historical period that i am interested in. I find it incredibly entertaining and interesting, and i don't feel like i have had a good day unless i learn some cool stuff about ww2 or europe during the plague etc. From age 14-17 i was big into economic and political issues, so i did a lot of research of economics and politics and started posting on forums.

The truth is out there everywhere. TV is thought control, social media is for corporations and government to study you, jews own all mass media and run all banks. Do a quick search and you will see who runs everything. Hitler was hated because he kicked out jew banks. Putin is trying to arrest the Rothschild's (jew bankers) so the media is making him out to be a bad guy. Air Malaysia is being corporately sabotaged because Islamic backers bought a whole new fleet of aircraft and tools and jew owned american companies need to purchase new planes to replace their deteriorating fleet. They do not want to buy direct from Boeing but they want Air Malaysia to be liquidated and then they buy the new planes for pennies on the dollar so they have hired mercs to do their dirty work.

Jews and assorted liberal assholes constantly smear Stormfront with assertions of anti-intellectualism, but it's simply a ruse to keep you in the dark. They host the writings of Revilo P. Oliver, a brilliant man and a doctorate of Classical Studies, that do wonders for explaining and tying together historical events that are often discussed on /pol/.

>What books would you recommend for starters?
Politics affects everyone in everyday life so it's a broad field. I read Politics for Dummies (don't let the title bother you) a few years back to see how well it was written and it is a pretty concise and accurate (and often entertaining) book for learning about the federal government. Perhaps the most memorable book I read during undergrad is Eric Redman's "Dance of Legislation" which chronicles a young man as a staffer in the Senate trying to get a single bill passed and following its course through the law making process.

If you're interested a bit more about political history in the US (assuming you are American) then the Federalist Papers gives a lot of information about the concepts and intents behind the US Constitution or Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America.

Or if you want to have a more conceptual and broad grasp of politics in general then Aristotle's Politics or David Easton's The Political System may be more useful.

in the past i would tell you to go to college, but in all earnest most of the people in college nowadays are unworthy of it and the professors are basicly brainwashing cultists.

this place doesnt exactly have the best debaters, but one in a while im plesatnly surprised.

anyhow here is where i would tell you to start.

their is a man named isocrates, you can find all his surviving work in three volumes at the loeb classical library, buy all of them and study them throughly and you will be in a better position in life than 90% of the people you will ever meet.

after that go learn what fractional reserve banking is, how our entire society is a self inflicted delusion and nothing people place such a high importance on even exists.

if i were to tell you what to do after this it would only lead you to suffering, but it should be obvious once you realize how much of your world is a lie.

good luck destroying your own pretenses.

You can rely only on yourself. No one will tell you what the truth is or where to find it, because everybody has a bias. After a while you can learn to identify these biases and filter them out of 'information' relayed to you by others.

Depends on the subject but the classics have to be at least seen through. Stuff like "The Prince" by Machiavelli, Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, Art of War etc, then you can delve more deeply into whatever subject interests you, start by reading articles/wikipedia for a broad but shallow look into subjects you want researched and go deeper into specifics from there.

Careful not to take shit too seriously, this board will fuck you up real fast.

As for current events, finding an unbiased source is next to impossible but what you can do is read stuff on a few different sites and mix and match shit.

Al Jazeera is not "liberal". Every news source has its own bias. What agenda does Fox News have? Russia Today? Press TV? Everything is biased and once you identify the general nature of that bias you can start to more easily see through the bullshit. Pretty much every piece of media you consume is propaganda. You need to build your own mental firewall. There is no source that is 100% accurate, unbiased and reliable. Even my posts here have an agenda.

Expose yourself to opposing views. If you watch an interesting documentary that blows your mind, try to google for a debunking of it.

Try not to get carried away.

Just read a lot. Make sure to pay attention to the news (from multiple sources). Read history, philosophy, literature, anything. Political columns are often shit, but they offer quick looks at modern issues from different perspectives. Let your brain suck in a lot of information, and think about what significance and interrelation everything has. And keep in mind that there are a lot of people here, and we don't all know everything.

Knowing your history helps a lot. Lucky for us at this time in history you can draw a line at WWII and are good enough to just care about everything that happened after for modern history and clearly before or older.

It's not 100% but for most cases it works.

Reading a lot of books help build that background of knowledge. I'm not talking the types of books that people are promoting today, that I like to think of as, Title and much longer Sub Title books. But just general fiction.

Take Heinlein, from his books you can put together a general overview of the 20th century, and some of the popular themes.

For a long time people thought that the world was going to run out of the ability to make food, and not just in the shit hole parts of the world. As such for a long time a popular theme in Heinlein's books was rationing of food.

For economics you can read the works of the popular economists, or even just other people's overviews of them. If you don't know how money if created and distributed you can start there and then build forward. A look at the Great Depression and how Germany pulled it's self up under the Nazi system of a new currency is a great base for information.

As you age you will pick up things if you are interested in more than sports and getting drunk on weekends.

this was rhetoric at its finest and is the foundation of most western forms, once you see it you can identify it and either be able to effectively counter it or outright avoid it.

once you see how this behavior is done and realize our society is built on literally nothing but a mass shared delusion you then realize none of it exists and can then begin to deconstruct the lies you have been feed as a child.

its this process of deconstruction that will make you question everything you know about the world, and through that process of questioning will become a habit and you will actually learn something about the world rather than blindly swallow the rhetoric.

The first 4 threads were muh racism, the next 6 were muh religion. Next up was some nazi shit followed by some right/left ramblings. Next was your daily dose of racemixing, followed by rape and pedo threads.

Yours was next. Do NOT try and learn any-fucking-thing from this place.

never brought up socrates, the point is to realize what it is and how pervasive that form of thought in our society, its more about recognizing then avoiding because you see it crop in so many odd places its fascinating.

>>33647452

the whole reason the world that exists now does is because people can be tempeted into wanting things they do not need, that is what consumerism is, the most dangerous thing to our society in turn is someone who is unreceptive to these temptations and can sway others to forgo their luxuries.

people in modern education are not taught about logic or how to question what they see, without knowing how they accept all things blindly and if you cannot separate the subjective from the objective then your going to continue to be lead around by desires which were implanted in you rather than being naturally formed from your own being.

Ayyy Rome Total War (the first part), Knights of Honor, then you have more complex ones like Europa Universalis and pretty much anything by Paradox Interactive. But you still gotta put in the effort.
Example: Parthia #rekts your shit with cataphracts, you proceed to read shit related to cataphracts and Parthia on wikipedia for 2 hours.

You might wanna start with the fun stuff first tho, read about mythology, spec. Greek, Egyptian, Babylonian etc, that will make it easier for you to transition to the harder stuff like a spec. people's culture, economy, military etc.

OP don't just read books, understand History as something very important that every man that wants to have a say in the current world need to have some knowledge of. Human nature usually leads us to go through similar things again and again, learning history will make it easier to identify these "patterns" and be more aware of the world's present by knowing it's past.
Try to be passionate with it, put yourself on the shoes of your ancestors and these old actors and you'll understand everything more easily.
Once you actually have some knowledge of history you will be able to find a reference to a past event with most current happenings, like revolutions, wars or simple quotes
Don't forget to always learn some geography, that way you'll be able to visualize where things are happening or might happen, this accompanied with some knowledge of that place's inhabitants cultures and how they react to certain things is very useful.
Just don't focus on Europe, other places also have thousands of years of history and don't try to learn things word by word without understanding them

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yocja_N5s1I&list=PLBDA2E52FB1EF80C9 This might be useful, also don't be afraid of hopping through Wikipedia articles, it's not the most reliable place but serves for basic knowledge

If you want to know about how jews rule the world do extensive studying of:

I watch the news -- Fox, CNN, Reuters, RT, MSNBC is too cancer -- and took the Jew-College-Board's AP European History class. It might have been offered at your school. The course is important, not for what it teaches you, but that it makes you actually think (They're changing it so you just memorize now, critical thinking is dangerous)

The most important part of that is the document-based essay. You read 9-10 documents about a certain topic and answer the question by making shit up and defending it using the documents and outside information. You have to analyze the authors' biases for it to work properly, plus you get extra points doing that. You practice this early because it's a ton of easy points on the test. But the added benefit is that your begin to unconsciously analyze bias on everything you read, watch, hear, see, whatever, and draw your own independent opinions from it.

Even -- and this is important -- what the course is teaching you.
Most kids you'll see in a school class will just memorize because it's easier than critically thinking, especially the asians. They'll spit back answers and do well. The alternative is to treat this "historical truth" as just another document. Who's it coming from, why are they saying what they are, who benefits from this angle, what other angles might there be, what other sources are there? And then you can form whatever opinion or conclusion you want, but it can never be "false", because it has basis in fact.

Then you apply this to the news. Three, four different sources -- all saying the same things happened (mostly) but putting huge spins on it. What's common? Everything common is probably true. What are their opinions? Why are they saying it? What do they get out of it? And now you form your own. You have an outlook on what's going on that's truly your own, which is more than can be said for at least 80% of Americans.
>>
>>33645299

Get a subscription to the Economist. It can be too lefty at times, but it covers current events extensively and you read about events that US Nedia doesn't cover/doesn't cover well, just take their opinions with a grain of salt.
For history, I have read about it since I was a kid because reading about wars and politics is fun for me, like game of thrones but without the dragons and zombies. If you can't afford to drop a hundred bucks on books every couple months, just read Wikipedia a lot. Pick something you're interested in, US history or world war 2 or the crusades or whatever and go to the wiki page, you'll end up getting sidetracked by millions of links and absorbing a ton of knowledge. It's fairly accurate, though you need books (plural) on any given area to fully understand it, Wikipedia will give you a solid basic/general understanding. In my experience in college, Wikipedia is about as good as any "intro to X" class, and often more involved than many classes I've taken. You have to take controversial issues with a grain of salt when reading about them on Wikipedia, but usually when it says something stupid some random autist will have put [citation needed] next to it, so if you just avoid assuming every single sentence is 100% fact you'll be all right.

Except rhetoric is not indicative of lines of thought. I believe you recognized in an earlier post that politicians greatly rely on rhetoric but you seem to forget that politicians regularly lie.

Read books to start with. History, classic literature, philosophy. This will help you to sort out, sift through, categorize, and grasp meanings.

It's hard to identify a source that's BS without already having a solid background in the field, but basically the way to do it is think about a sentence you just read and whether it sounds like a statement of fact (in 600-whatever, the Arabs began to invade the eastern Roman Empire) or of opinion (the Arabs invaded the eastern Roman Empire because they were oppressed minorities who wanted to culturally enrich the racist Romans).
For history, reading older books is better (pre-1990) to avoid bs opinion/indoctrination. The Victorians and Edwardians were based, and wrote some awesome stuff

all politicians lie and the lies tell more than the truths do because they show what hey want you to think rather than what really is, you dont need to make a distinction at the time, thats where fact checking and logic comes in for the observer, all that matters is the pervasiveness and cleverness of the person speaking to appear to be graceful even if in reality their tapdancing on graves.

Go to Stormfront. On /pol/ you would probably absorb as much from the shitposting as from the real posts.

This, especially if you bother to read the flavor text in games like age of enpires, civilization, and the total war series. I would highly recommend the total war series, because unlike the other two, it is fairly dedicated to simulating a certain period of history. It also has fairly extensive encyclopedia entries for units and buildings. Rome TW and Empire TW are good about this, I can't vouch for RTW2 because I haven't played it. Age of Mythology also had very extensive "encyclopedia" entries that are as good an intro to Greek/Egyptian/Norse mythology as anything.

These games can get you started in a certain direction of study, and then you can go to Wikipedia to learn more, and then buy books when you run into something you really want to know more about on which Wikipedia doesn't go into enough detail

Read bro.

I think the best directions I could point you in would be to read about; peak oil and the kybalion.

My best advice for you is something i learned the hard way. There is no religion, red pill, book or mantra that will enlighten you to the fullest. The real way for advancement the real pill is to monitor your own thoughts and environment. Ask yourself why you think the way you do, what and how do the things around influence your perception and thoughts. Your subconscious is very big and holds many things you don't understand right now. To dig those up and actually understand and not just know how you work is the real pill.

Right off the top of my head...
For General Philosophy:
Kant, Wittgenstein, Hobbes

For Nazism:
Nietzsche and Heidegger

For Right Wing in general:
Plato, Peter Hitches, etc. You'll have to find your own based on your own definition of 'Right Wing'. i.e. whether or not you're a collectivist or an individualist

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STAY AWAY FROM-tier:
Ayn Rand, Max Stirner, Rousseau

I'll back this up, on almost any subject you're better off with older texts to begin with. You can catch up with modern developments later but your base shouldn't have been written too recently because pandering to plebs has become the norm.

This is evident even in chemistry books, where the focus shifts from developing an inquisitive and analytical mind to simple rote memorization. Education has collapsed, so be wary of any book that simply tells you what to believe rather than convincing you with facts.

Hurr durr some units were historically inaccurate. They had good encyclopedia entries and illustrate the basics of the roman geopolitical era (where was Rome, how did it operate, where was Carthage, what were the Gauls, what were the Parthians, etc.)

Obviously I'm not suggesting it as an intensive study of historical battlefield tactics. That said, I can't fathom how CA could be so good at pike formations in RTW and suck so bad at pile formations in MTW2.

You can't really read Kant without reading his precursors, Descartes, Leibniz, and Hume at the bare minimum. Reading any philosopher without having read *all* of his predecessors going back to Ancient Greece is always going to be difficult, because they generally assumed you had read all of that when they were writing

the point of a politician is persuasion the only time they do tell the truth is when it serves their interest, but more often then not they would just as soon spin or out right lie to meet their intent, truth hold no relivance to them other than to serve their interest.

it is the job of the observer to seperate out what the person says, knowing that everything they said was said more often then not to serve their own interest.

sure their are a few honest politicians, but they are rare, most are not and you should presume all of them are lying until that one individual can establish their credibility and respectable reputation.

Get a textbook (a good one!) on the history of your country.
Then get a textbook on the world history (at least the last 150 years).
Then get a textbook from economy 101.
Then you'll find out where to look.
Then you will be a pretty erudite person and be able to make your own opinion on current events.

Don't get sucked into the bullshit ideological shit.


historyisaweapon dot org is where you're going to want to learn more about the people in your country. You've got Zinn's People's History of the States, Mark Twain's anti-imperialist essays, and some Huey Newton for your blues.

Bonus reading: They have an essay by General Smeadly Butler outlining how war is a racket to use national force to serve the banking elite. Though he dates back to the early 20th century, he predicts the institutional power and rise of the military-industrial complex by decades.

School books, pre university books, 1984, brave new world, animal farm, National epics, Lord of the rings trilogy and ramdom shit novels that attract you.

It was ok. I appreciate him attacking liberal and democratic presidents along with the other side of the spectrum but it was only because they weren't liberal enough it seemed.

Look for a documentary called "The money masters". It is very dry but very informative and is way better than all years of public schooling
>>
>>33645299
Here's how I did it.
Remember those school textbooks on History or science or whatever?
Remember how in this huge thick book only about 30% of the material was covered?

I read those in my free time. When I ran out, I read the textbooks of other courses in my school. And when I ran out of those, I found stuff in the library, and went online.

But to start you off:

I am not ideological or attached to ideas, which is why I am in the Third Position in the first place. The Third Position is the Synthesis of capitalism and communism. They argued, and the result was the perfect system, taking the best from both sides. Of course as a thesis, Fascism also has its anti-thesis, and eventually, another new system will be born, the best of fascism and its opponent combined into one system, which I will adhere to when the time comes.

So you can go fuck yourself nigger.

Every country in the world asked for their gold, but the US printed more money then they had gold.
If Nixon did not remove the gold standard and people kept asking for their gold. There would've been a point where the US did not have any gold at all while countries were still asking for their gold.
If that happened, the world economy would've collapsed since the dollar was and still is the worlds main currency.

It was a very smart move, but he only delayed the inevitible. We all know that the dollar will collapse soon and it'll hit the world hard.
