Uhhh bros, I don't think we were originally included in God's plan..
Pretty disappointing.

I have a very good feeling about Faustina Kowalska as well she seems legit. Fatima is probably legit. Therese of Lisieux is probably legit. I've known one person specifically whom I know has been legit. But it's not something to focus on.
I'll take that as an admission of total weakness. Render your wallet unto Caesar, faggot.
Because new prophets who contradict what Jesus (God) said and did are not God's prophets. Therefore they are false prophets.
I can't even tell who's in which corner, would you guys identify yourselves real quick and tell us which ideology you're proselytizing for in this thread? Sorry I'm just confused and trying to keep track.

So why do you need another prophet? If Jesus gave us the complete message, what is a prophet supposed to provide?
Accusations of hypocrisy couldn't carry any less weight than the ones you levy, faggot. Pull the 2x4 out of your eye.

Why is it so controversial? People working at the publishing house were literally crying tears at their bosses about how they shouldn’t publish it

You just came off like a big shill mainly because you are.
Then how am i supposed to become a famous poet? Wtf how is shilling bad? Everyone fucking does it.
Yeah, and annoying shills get deleted by the people who manage celebrity social media accounts. At least if you hadn't said anything you account would have got some juice in searches and maybe some traffic. Watch some of those Lynda classes on internet marketing.
Look at how that sad shill Tao Lin ended up. What a fucking loser. At least his dad is rich, but you don't even have a trust fund.

I'm going to be honest guys: I hate christianity. I think it is the most disgusting thing to ever exist. The amount of torment and misery it has caused is unquantifiable. I want to see every christian killed. Nietzsche was 100% correct in his prognostication of this putrid religion, it is the most brazenly nihilistic mentality to ever afflict humanity. I hate it so much, bros.

What do you think of piblishing on instagram? Submitting is costly
I think if you use Instragram you are normie trash, and almost to a certainty are uninteresting to the point I would recommend against publishing anything.

Honestly I don't even know where to start. I'm interested in ancient knowledge and mysticism.
Well then you shouldn't be looking in Perennialism or Traditionalism, they're decisively Modernist ideas.
Read Rene Guenon's Crisis of the Modern World. Go from there
This anon is right but I think it’s a better idea to learn more about modern nihilism, rejection of status quo, and accelerationism. It gives a better idea as to why people like Evola are popular now. I recommend the newer meme books like Bronze Age Mindset and Harassment Architecture first.

If you arent a postmodernist or a post-postmodernist you cant be a classic in this era.
>t. schizo
So it was a classic in 1920, over 60 years before it was published? McCarthy really is the greatest American author.

Interested in /lit/'s thoughts on this, I'm on the fence about picking it up. I'm very interested in the concept of the novel and the information overload, but worried about if it's in the preachy, 'orange man bad!' vein. I'm aware he's a factor in the book, but I find that sort of hysteria exhausting to even think about.

What did you think of it?

This is the specific poem I was talking about, the tone of which I’d imagine matches what OP was complaining about
Proof that you can get literally anything published if you’re a Jew
>which I’d imagine matches what OP was complaining about
so sounds like a fucking strawman
Not at all, just giving an instance of what OP called literature in “the preachy, 'orange man bad!' vein.”

He’s judged Ellmann to fall into what I see Cole falling into here. I don’t know whether OPs judgement is valid, but if he feels it to be then my advice was that “banal stuff can be pushed past if the work is formally interesting, or interesting in other ways.”
I’m not so much judging (or strawmaning) Ellmann’s book as taking OP at his reading. It’s more his reaction that I’m reacting to. So suck a fat boner

yeah, but how many of them were good words?
Not him, but just keep writing. Get inspired and tell yourself a really good story from beginning to end.

Probably not many, but it only takes a rewrite or an editing pass to turn things from bad to good.
