@slutmagazine Yes, that's a great example. Those photos don't represent any actual reality. It's an illusion and purely simulation. Baudrillard might say we've lost the ability to decipher the difference.
It makes me laugh when I think of some red-pillers. The ones who are anti-modernity (which is fine in itself), 'extremists', anti-'the blue-pill hordes' etc. Yet in actuality do what the majority of what everyone else is doing, sitting behind digital screens and interacting with strangers. They create little simulacras on the internet and exchange commonalities and remind each other they're outside of the norm.
All whilst nobody actually gives a fuck about them.
@slutmagazine Simulacra is a representation of reality, but not actual reality. Baudrillard has written some great stuff on it. He speaks of the internet and digital world creating simulacra that is so removed from ACTUAL reality that people can no longer tell the difference between the simulation and the real.
Like thinking this forum is a 'stage'. It isn't a stage. It's a dude sitting behind a screen somewhere typing on a keyboard and not actually interacting. That's closer to reality.
God damn you guys take this internet shit way too seriously.
And why do I care what GLO says? That dude failed to pass the bar, and has been relegated to scoping reddit for impressionable young men to funnel towards his coaching. Dude sent me a tank top that he had imprinted with a Greek guy fighting a lion. Like, how try-hard is that shit?
You're doing the same as almost everyone else here. Living in black and white. Red-pillers here do what any other blue-pill fag on the internet does. Read a few paragraphs and jump to the narrative formed in their own head.
Did anyone ask for nuance in my beliefs? Did anyone attempt to open conversation to find the specifics, or just read a few paragraphs and go off that? You didn't think to yourself 'any guy with a semblance of a brain isn't going to say much more than the standard, because he realises he's on an anonymous internet forum with strange dudes and devoting much time here quickly crosses into diminishing returns'?
Do you comprehend that I wasn't asking Anteloupe for a solution for me? I was asking him to show a solution instead of just looking like an npc posturing 'red-piller'. At least he provided one. Not much of one, but this is a guy who got banned from GLO's forum.
But ambiguity and ability to converse aren't the expected strong points when the guys involved all largely found their way here because they couldn't converse with women.
Brother, GLO is a loser. Most of the guys here a losers. I left and check-in, and everything and everyone are exactly the same as they were 6 or 12 months ago. The same conversations, about the same shit, talking to strangers on the internet. You don't think there are some obvious problems in themselves most of these guys aren't aware of or addressing?
GLO is running the same telegram and private forums, sitting behind a screen somewhere conversing with guys he will probably NEVER meet. You really think I care at all what he says?
Convince me 95% of these guys aren't identical to any fat fuck scrolling reddit.Read More
@Antelope I did address what you said. What are you doing about it? If you think the US isn't going to go down the same path, you're in denial.
So, what's your plan? What's your step by step solution to do something different? What more than sitting on internet forums, getting banned from GLO chat rooms and proposing to read Nietzsche?
Stop talking shit and give us a solution. I've been around red-pill lone enough to recognise the posturing and kids who aren't affecting change in any way whatsoever. So I feel compelled to tell you to DO SOMETHING, BRO. Give us a plan that's more than 'hurr derr you an NPC, maaann'.
