went fishing with my dad and caught this huge carp. also caught some very small fishes but they were too small to do anything with them so we let them go. fishing is a very soothing activity, and i can do it right outside of my home too since theres a pretty long and deep canal passing by. these two chinese guys told us we needed a permit to fish around that part and it made me realize how much i despise bureaucracy and its endless series of permits. probably the most despicable part of bourgeois legislature
after that we played some ping pong on a table in the little garden square. completely outclassed him and im not even that good at ping pong really. made me realize how despite his pretty good physical condition for a man in the first part of his 60s he's getting old and all...

It's a good movie, really displays how absolutely corrupting of the soul fascism is.

it occurred to me last night that when people say they can't remember kanji/hanzi it probably in part means they literally can't recognize characters, which isn't my problem- at this point i'd say i rarely run into one (at least in japanese usage) that i haven't seen but i can't connect them to readings/words, or i forget what they "mean" exactly, and i wonder what the best way to use this to my advantage is in terms of rectifying/learning faster. probably reading more, which i don't do enough

The existing liberal order in Western Europe is unmasked as not only decadent and corrupt, but incapable and unwilling of organizing a proper response to the pandemic. All but the most indoctrinated/greatest beneficiaries of the system knew the system is inefficient and insane, but as long as people are relatively rich and comfortable it was all swept under the rug. Now everyone can see a system collapsing in on itself. All the pointing and laughing at the American response is sounding pretty hollow now that things are starting to go the same direction. Turns out our supposedly superior social democracy only had a half-hearted attempt in it. Unfortunately most people are more than willing to blame minorities rather than the system. Won't be long before even the liberal majority start thinking overt dictatorship might be preferable. Meanwhile the Left is trying to replicate the succes of post-war anti-communist social "democracy", stuck in a failed strategy.
Luckily social fascism still provides enough benefits to get drunk and play bideo games.

Reminds of Mark Fisher

chronically demotitvated, lethargic, filled with the kind of idiot porcine self-satisfaction that is the dialectical obverse of feeling paranoid. 'Better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a pig satisfied....': not for stoners, whose only commitment is to the pleasure principle, to the shortest route to total relaxation. Thought, thought requires effort man, stop oppressing me, let me sit here and babble senselessly, coz that's creative, right, don't mess with my mojo, but buy me some munchies when you go to the shop, yeh?



i love his imitation of "the youths"

but i kind of disagree w him here. I think the problem with weed is mostly the reactionary identity formed around it as a "stoner" (much like "gamer") rather than isolated consumption itself (not including the imperialism that supports this ofc). but i'm a bought off aristocrat like everyone else here so what do i know

I would be interested in someone writing an essay or book around how "psychedelic" philosophies are really just reactionary liberalism, although I am somewhat afraid that the explanation does not go deeper than this sentence, i.e. psychedelics just give you a deeper access to the hegemonic philosophy which happens to be reactionary liberalism.

i hope some stöner writes an essay where they explore how their favorite drug evolved to get cannabis's pollinators high, after the plant is pollinated it stops making drugs, humans are enjoying the sexual organ of this plant they found, more or less, which was enjoyed first by some flies, and how this experience the author is having is a window into bug consciousness. i hope the essay's ultimately about letting their spider mites just be... very self-conscious stoner essay...

Yeah that's a good point, I didn't think of that. Id say it's basically a self-serving philosophy for trust fund kids to think doing drugs is a public service or whatever. I mean you don't have to look any further than what the most popular heads of "psychedelia" have to say. If you're familiar with a guy Alan Watts, he's basically this orientalist snake these guys listen to when they're tripping. His talks are completely vapid and devoid of any content whatsoever, but they love him because you can project whatever hegemonic hippie lib shit onto it.

It's also pretty common knowledge among psychedelic enthusiasts how all of those people who claim "ego death" are actually really full of themselves, and have no humility at all.

I suppose ego death is really just maximal projection of one's ego onto the environment, now that I think about it.

the main thing that's funny about Mark Fisher is that his opinions on college students were just overwrought thesaurus versions of the sort of thing you'd find on your Facebook timeline between different photos of the same green bean casserole

i havent engaged with other people irl or the broader amerikan/western culture for pretty much my entire life, making me shockingly ignorant of anything going on around me or what people care about. this makes socialization hard. i can talk about a lot of things intelligently but who cares lole. i've thought about getting new hobbies to fix this problem but i'm not sure what i'd actual;ly care about that amerikans like

i mean yeah generally if ur a minority in a settler enclave, it can feel a bit shallow at times. but in all seriousness food is a great universal, allows alot of conversation, and if you're good at cooking and knowledgable it can make things less shallow for those around you.

i don't feel better than others over it.. i had a weird childhood and family that isolated me and i got online over it doing further damage and i'd prefer to fix the problem

#9155
Due to my health problems I spent my youth in isolation, one thing I'd recommend is to imagine you're a talk show host when interacting with people. In other words be very friendly and overly interested in their lives. Eventually it'll feel natural. Basically what I'm saying here is fake it till you make it.
