Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
@tchower The world hasn't gone insane.
1st world countries have.
The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race.
lol.... but seriously.
They're miserable. High Taxes, wealth-fair, and college debt.
They favor the collective. "FOr THe GrEaTor Gud"
They favor the system. over the individual.
@tchower Everybody who has been preaching about being open-minded have all suffered the same fate. They were so open-minded their brains fell out. Libertarians were always just confused fucks who pretended to be intellectual by choosing both sides of each debate. There is right or wrong, choosing in the middle is still wrong. A good example was Ginsburg wanting to reduce age of consent to 12yrs old, you either agree like a pedo, half-agree like a pedo-in-hiding, or you disagree.
I remember the days when being a libertarian was actually really great and open minded, but now they’re backing black lives matter, ending the national guard when there’s riots, and supporting this type of shit. This world has gone insane and there’s not a lot that can be done about it at this point but except play your part and make the most of it! That was my point!
This life has started to feel more and more like living the real life version of an extra staring in a Netflix series based on a marvel comic, and my character can do nothing but make the most of his role in this clown show, until it’s finally over.
@Elvis I was ribbed as a teenager when I called the Tau in WH40k flat-faced space-commies. Their literal rally cry is "for the greater good!". Ditto for the Clanners in Battletech being glorified space commies mixed with an enforced caste system and eugenics. In the 2000's people were not worried about communism and I learned my history outside of school so I was the only one who saw it back then.
Hitler banned guns "for the children" and "for the greater good", he had various public speeches about safety for everyone. Soon after confiscation they rounded up Jews and holocaust-ed them. Never trust collectivists.
Anything giving direct advice on what to say is worthless and will set you back
TRP teaches you how to be, not what to say.
If you've finished Rational Male and understand the basics of the sidebar, it is time to go game in real life. There is no other way at this point.
