Perhaps. But how many times do we have to hear about where some lonely blowjacker wants to pit his cum?

adhd is a false reality created for you by the Corporation. It's particularly interesting when we consider that this agency compounds the effect by giving you medication through their pharmaceutical lines and in doing this, allows you justification for feeling the need to feed on their poison because its now apart of society. it goes full circle. break free and seek help.

start with the greeks...haha no i don't have answers anyone. It's something everyone must take on by himself. Maybe learn a little bit on how propaganda works to equip your person with the necessary tools to combat deep rooted societal norms that lack coherency in all sense.

>>18707706
Yes, Just do one thing at a time and make it the sole thing. When you're no longer bombarding your psyche with multiple stimuli at once you're more more cognizant and lucid not only of said sole thing but of also of the world around you. There's an after effect, surprisingly. It almost feels like sobering up but I guess it depends on how badly one is addicted to distraction.

books for this feel?

I think it should be encouraged, but not enforced. Like you get benefits for good genes and getting a family, and a warning if you are genetically detrimental.

Without natural selection in most forms in the modern world, i think its good to some degree, maybe not to the point of forcing tho.

Excerpt from a book on Nietzsche I found interesting.

>… For our purposes, however, it will be sufficient to concentrate on only two further phases. The first is represented by Stefan George (1868–1933), a poet whose influence at first eclipsed that of Rilke. He is best known as the founder of a literary circle, the George Kreis, which made important contributions to modern German poetry, criticism, and cultural historiography. Some of its members became professors at various German universities, and it was primarily as an educator of educators and writers that George made his influence felt. And as Nietzsche became one of the heroes of the Kreis, the poet’s influence on the Nietzsche legend was considerable.
>The Kreis was united by a common sorrow over the desecration of the German language, its progressive degeneration into journalese, and the impossibility of using this profaned medium for the expression of deep feelings or great thoughts.
I felt similarly when Twitter came out

This book is so overrated.
>Orwell writes endlessly about the oppressive world with barely any character development
>Julia for no reason tells Winston "I love you"
>they have sex on the very far outskirts of town
>this wasn't dangerous enough I guess so they decide to have sex in a rented room in the city that they think is safe
>of course it isn't
>at one point in the book Winston reads a textbook (so we as the reader have to read this textbook)
Overrated shit. The themes of totalitarianism and suppression of speech and thought is great, but everything else is garbage.

Islands in the Stream is composed of three unfinished books, published posthumously. It's probably quite different from the final draft he would have ended up writing, and at any rate, is incomplete. So no, you are not being "filtered".

However, because he was unable to finish the book(s), it would be unfair to judge him on Islands in the Stream. I would therefore recommend you read The Sun Also Rises.

>One legacy of that original "correct" understanding is a third peculiarity that makes our systems different from other modern dictatorships: it commands an incomparably more precise, logically structured, generally comprehensible and, in essence, extremely flexible ideology that, in its elaborateness and completeness, is almost a secularized religion. It of fears a ready answer to any question whatsoever; it can scarcely be accepted only in part, and accepting it has profound implications for human life. In an era when metaphysical and existential certainties are in a state of crisis, when people are being uprooted and alienated and are losing their sense of what this world means, this ideology inevitably has a certain hypnotic charm. To wandering humankind it offers an immediately available home: all one has to do is accept it, and suddenly everything becomes clear once more, life takes on new meaning, and all mysteries, unanswered questions, anxiety, and loneliness vanish. Of course, one pays dearly for this low-rent home: the price is abdication of one’ s own reason, conscience, and responsibility, for an essential aspect of this ideology is the consignment of reason and conscience to a higher authority. The principle involved here is that the center of power is identical with the center of truth. (In our case, the connection with Byzantine theocracy is direct: the highest secular authority is identical with the highest spiritual authority.)
