Anyone have any recommendations for works similar to pic related. I have been reading lots of Jungers works lately and he is quite accurate in some of his predictions and analysis.

It's a shame there's comparatively so little information about Junger and his works, especially in English
I wonder how much there is in German just on the war. Likely someone knows how many coats he had.
There's a bibliography on Wikipedia which looks extensive

I hate 99.9% of anime, but there are a few select shows that I think have artistic value. Mushi-shi Is one such show. I see the underlying philosophy of Mushi-shi to be that our individual lives are ultimately just small parts of larger natural cycles and processes and that we should not work against these cycles but instead try to exist within them. sort of reminds me of Daoism. What are some good books on this?

If by "sonder" you are looking for something like the "unwritten/unspoken intricacies of the average person's life" then read the japs

yes he wrote "And if there comes to you from Satan an evil suggestion, then seek refuge in God. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing." 41:36

stupid ass christian bitchboy doesnt read his bible enough huh
Explaining the quran is easy;

First came the torah

Christians rebranded the torah as the old testament and added the new testament, called the result the bible

Mo took bits from both, added some stuff, changed some pieces (virgin Mary in an oasis instead of in a stable to give birth), called the result the quran.

And whatshisname looked at all that crud and pooped out the book of mormon. (Not the musical, an actual book, with lots of old bits and a bunch of new bits; including a bit that says white skin is good, medium skinned people could become good and white, black skin is evil.)

Yes, those are in chronological order, so;
the torah is the old testament,
the bible is the newer testament,
the quran is the newerer testament,

>Who is in favour of abortion? No one evidently. One would have to be mad to be in favour of abortion. The problem is not to be for or against abortion but for or against its legalization.
>But this freedom of sexual intercourse for the “couple” such as it is conceived by the majority—this marvelous permissiveness towards it—who has tacitly desired it, who has tacitly promulgated it, and tacitly introduced it, so that it is now an irreversible trend in people’s habits? The consumerist power, the power of the new fascism.
When did leftists loose their minds? When did the consumerist power turn them into such deplorable coomers? Would they call Pasolini an incel for talking common sense?

The first quote is one huge lie. What common sense? Man, you seem to be very stupid faggot for twisting truth.

This was basically how it worked in the middle ages the tradfaggots revere so much. Parents were allowed to kill their children without justifying their homicide.

Bowie IS high culture. as in high on cocaine
About 2014-16 I think, early-mid twenties.

I would argue that sharing 4chan posts is pop culture, posting on 4chan however is not necessarily so. It's just a form of letter writing.
Posting here is anonymous, there's limited voting in form of cringe&based, most posts are without excessive caps, pictures or layout and do not beg for attention.

Based, such a reread-able and easy book that stays interesting even on the 3rd reading
That one was really comfy to read but i don't see the reason to do it twice. It's not worth it for anything but killing the time.

>author begins a sentence with "you"
is he talking to me?
depends, its also a way to speak in hypothetics
It depends. Sometimes "you" is also used in the first or "fourth"-person" perspective, depending on context. You'll find this is very common among Australians and to some degree Brits.
I prefer 'one.'
If the author is Calvino, probably.

I met a traveller from an antique land A
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone B
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, A
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, B
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, A
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read C
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, D
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed: C
And on the pedestal these words appear: E
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: D
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!' E
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay F
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare E
The lone and level sands stretch far away. F

>Huysmans - A Rebours
>Proust - ISoLT
>Celine - Castle to castle
