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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

>>16890019
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
