Avatar is Morpheus, God of Dreams.
@redpillschool A wise man once wrote an essay on Means and Ends. Some consider using the ends to justify the means a universal moral problem. The writer pointed out that there is no immaculate conception of means and ends in a vacuum, they exist in a broader sphere of processes and results. The conclusion: The more useful question is whether these particular ends justify any particular means.
The question of whether telling a lie can be a moral or ethical higher road than blurting out "the truth" depends entirely on the context of the question.
His presentation may not have been the best and if he doesn't get traction then so be it. The reason I offered to cross-post it to the official channel was for the following reasons:
I need to get out in front of people trying to piggyback on the official channel going public thereby diluting the brand. If I can keep people's focus centered on a single channel/focal point, we'll be much better off in the long-run.
The content of his video was a decent take on stoicism from a philosophical/classical approach. It's not for everyone and that's okay. And I tried to clean up the audio best I could and added the background music to help fill dead spots.
- I'm open to giving people a shot, within reason, of having their own show on the channel. It's not unlike what TRP.RED has done for allowing people to host their own podcasts on the platform. If their show ends up adding value and being in line with our mission, then it'll continue in an officially sanctioned capacity.
Once things shake out and we find our voice with the channel things will largely sort themselves out on their own with who would even want to be associated with us (and vice versa).Read More
@bloodexorcist I disagree that chess is useless. It's a strong cerebral challenge. While there is some element of psyching out one's opponent to any competitive sport, I think @TheStoicCrane oversells the frame and dominance aspects a bit.
Anyone who thinks it's a pussy game, are you up for a round of Chessboxing?
@bloodexorcist You appear to be setting up a binary value judgement between "group" and "clan" while playing loose with the definition of each. These words have precise meanings that are readily available; there's no excuse for an aspiring pedant to misuse the tool of his trade.
In the bigger picture, why are you so invested in cutting this guy down before he's published any content TO critique? Where is YOUR body of original work in the manosphere space?
My position on @abaddon's proposed channel: The manosphere is oversaturated with long format, slow moving podcasts and talking head videos, so yours better be scintillating.
