I find the internet buzzwords phenomenon very interesting in how it kills any potentially fruitful discussion in a matter of seconds. It's perhaps the most effective form of propaganda today. The based/cringe lexicon that came out of 4chan was just another tool to compromise organic movements of thought. Language is the key to everything.
Is anybody else on /x/ also concerned by this ?

i should also add that this extends to phrases as well. basically memes in general. it's getting more and more homogeneous, to the point where it'll become a disgusting gray mush. people are getting separated from their own selves through the infection of language, the tool that is not only used for communication, but it's most importantly the tool that holds thoughts together. i'm scared bros.

>>28139982
1950-1960s: "Nazi," "commie," "socialist"
1960s-1970s: "commie," "pinko," "hippie"
1980s-1990s: "gay"
2000s: "terrorist"
2010s: "terrorist," "Nazi," "socialist," "far-right," "bigot"
2020s: "Nazi," "TERF," "alt-right," "antivax," "antimask"

Every generation has a few crossover "bad words" along with ones defined by major cultural events (Vietnam War, 9/11, COVID, etc).

Yes
notice if you discuss "darker" forms of spirituality, immediately shills will pour out of the woods and cry about "edgy" anons and ideas and all sorts of evilness.
there is a thought control program in place
anyone who questions things can see that it encourages goodthink and discourages social badthink
the powers that be heavily incorporate utility of propagandistic buzzwords as a form of cyber-conditioning and society maintenance
almost like a bot network or something, which believes it helps maintain current powers in place as it combats dissident ideologies.

Because we're obsessed with labels and designations, it allows for quick categorization or even blanket dismissal of an entire concept simply because the perceived common conception has already done the work on it and made a judgment.

>Surely you don't know better than the entire common consensus of a subject?

Apples? These are good, tasty, done. Next item.

Nazis? These are bad, evil, cruel, done.
Next item.

It's easy for the brain to make a decision if it believes many other brains have already made one.

we're destroying the attatched meanings removing thoughts from usability in our interactions.

i am also finding, in a slightly different way, there are the people that only interact with others that use key terms to know how up to date or aligned with their views the other is. mutual validation.
>>
>>28141690
Exactly, and by labeling something as whatever the boogeyman group is of the day, you remove the ability to rationally engage with it. "We don't negotiate with terrorists." "Punch a Nazi." Suddenly a particular person or subject or incident stops being its own thing and is thrown into the big bucket of acceptable hate targets.

Labels are powerful things. The same concept applies to political parties (instead of millions of people having their own views, it's either Red Team or Blue Team), and it also provides a great way of pitting people against each other. "You're an [x] and I'm a [y], so I'm obligated to hate you!" X and Y could be "Christian" and "Muslim," or "Democrat" and "Republican," or "Catholic" and "Protestant," or whatever else you want. It's just the Stanford Prison Experiment.

Interesting topic OP. Buzz word programing is an aspect of social engineering. It's a very real thing. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't realize there's a multi-billion dollar industry dedicated to this called advertising industry. As nebulous, misunderstood, and unobserved as this industry is, this is the parts that are publicly visible to us. What about the social engineering aspect from government agencies foreign or domestic or private interest groups?

I've noticed something similar but more subtle, and wondered if anyone else noticed. That is the killing off or consolidation of sub-culture. This is old fag speaking with lots of nostalgia here, but back in 4chan's golden days EVERY board WAS a sub-culture within the general larger subculture of 4chan itself. We had nested sub-cultures within sub-cultures that was capable of spawning countless memes at a rate and speed that they couldn't be cataloged or even absorbed. It was like the precambrian explosion where everything was weird new and exotic, and only the fittest and strongest memes survived. So many memes have been lost, totally forgotten, like tears in the rain. but lately it's like everything is being consolidated into 1 massive mono-culture. All memes are just pepe's and wojaks. Originality and creativity is replaced by variations of a theme, and that theme is Red VS Blue (or us VS you) type thinking. I guess if you wanted to mind control or social engineer a large group, getting them all to think alike with 1 massive mono-culture is the only way to do it.

Has anyone ever been part of a sub-culture that got attacked/invaded by outside forces till it either vanished completely or became absorbed/consolidated by a larger group? I'm must wonder if this is coincidental, or some entropic like/type effect, or social engineering from dark and shadowy forces? Thoughts?

This is the internet as a whole. In the 90s, only fat losers who didn't shower "logged on to the web." If you spent a lot of time on a computer, you were a loser and a dork. Now, the average teenage girl is using a computer and the internet (their phone) about 5000 times as much as the typical 90s "computer dork."

In a similar vein, programming. I was one of those GATE kids who self-taught himself C++ back in elementary school in the 90s, and people looked at me like I was some kind of techno wizard. Now, everything is so focused on "learn to code" that there are more programmers (it's just "coding" now) coming out of elementary school than kids who can change a lightbulb. Meanwhile, that's also a skill that is equally booming in third-world countries where the jobs can be outsourced, so while everybody is being shoehorned into the "STEM STEM STEM coding coding coding" factory, they're going to leave school without a lot of job security.

I've been on the internet since the days of dial-up in my country, like 1998 and it's weird to see how language has changed since then.

I always made it a point to speak in normal english to people and not in memes or in-jokes or catchphrases but these days I find I can't understand half the shit people say. I joined a few discords in the last few months and it's like they're speaking an alien fucking language half the time (also most discords seem infested with transvestites for some reason).

It all ties in to the dead internet theory imo, there's a lot less people on the internet than you think and most of the ''content'' is bots talking to bots, pushing new language and basically speaking nonsense.

yeah i was an active member in a foreign group of forums about ten years ago. each forum, while it shared certain inside jokes, was its own entity. it had its own presence, and its own little world. it was basically a community in the real sense of word. after a while, the most popular forum started to become more and more mediatized, and with it there was a new influx of users who mostly joined because of the sensationalism (very much like 4channel post-2016). still, the forums managed to be fine until, oddly enough, 2016, where the company who ran the site was bought by a bigger multinational online media enterprise that, not only did a complete rehaul of the website, but also started to enforce serious censorship rules that were slowly but surely killing off the more salacious content of the forum.
Eventually the hordes of newfags took over, and while it managed to hold its own identity for a short while, the pressure became too much to bear. Once the original users tried to migrate to a new website, it was done. The twitter and discord plagues really did a number on the posts. Everything became noticeably less creative, and more interestingly, it became more in line with jokes that were popular somewhere else.
I find this last point to be very very intriguing. It's a kind of enforced online globalism. They knew that by attacking a foreign, i guess ''dissident'', community that was by all accounts very influential on the youth, they would successively keep the chaotic elements under control and they could easily fashion it into a false opposition. i see it like this : imagine that in an area, you only have one home for troubled outcasts, the only place where they can find solace and be their own selves. now that it's destroyed, you, whoever is in charge of the area, can direct them to wherever you want. they don't have a choice, they'll eventually have to assimilate, even if its just in part.
anyway, pic related should ring a bell.

There's always been a memetic war going on, ever since memes became a thing. And I'm talking the original meaning of memes - as in the moment we were first able to remember things, spread them, and adapt them.
Here's a fun one - you anons know about the classic trope of shouting fire in a crowded movie theater in regards to limiting free speech?
You know where that expression came from?
You think there was a court case, or a rash of people shouting fire threats in theaters?
Nope nope nope.
It came from the mind of a Supreme Court Justice, who gave it as an analogy.
What was that analogy for?
It was about a man handing out flyers during WW1 that were in opposition to the draft.
They jailed that man, and the SC said there was no violation of free speech.
Because handing out flyers that said "I dont think the govt. should be allowed to force you to join the army" was incitement to riot, and was the same as shouting fire in a crowded theater.

there's so many of them, man. it can be mundane stuff like wtf. this one especially gets to me because it's shutting the mind itself against possible contemplation/analysis of a peculiar situation. getting yourself used to saying this, and associating any unusual sighting with this state of mild shock, will put your brain into a flight mode instead of using its power to understand what it is that you're looking at. so many people fall into this trap, where, let's say a film has a slightly extraordinary storytelling method, goes completely above a person's head just because they said wtf instead of just asking what's this, and understanding what is being said after just a few seconds of pondering. i guess you could say that it's a filter, but i find it sad.
then there's all the stuff that's on regular social media. king, queen, mbti, wholesome..etc
and like a post above said, it can be phrases as well. something like ''it's almost as if xyz'', ''too much information'', and pretty much any flavor of month meme.

anyway, i hope somebody will write a worthwhile book about all this chaos.

crap, it's fascinating how that meme would gain so much traction and become generally accepted as true, despite having zero real world evidence. I mean to say if you think about it logically, shouting fire in a crowded room that is. Let's say hundreds of people are in a theater and JUST ONE GUY is shouting fire. Are hundreds of people who see no fire, no smoke, and more importantly smell no smoke, going to ignore their own senses and listen to 1 guy? More likely the hundreds of people will conclude that this 1 guy is crazy.

What's fascinating is the circumstances that you described. Anyone wishing to point out the obvious faulty logic at the time would appear to be giving sympathy to draft dodgers during a time of war. There's definitely some psychological incentive to keep the lie alive and going even if you know it's wrong until some point in time where people forget that it was a lie.

Kind of like how after 9/11 there was a huge push for removal of online privacy in the name of national security and protecting children from pedos and if you were in favor of privacy then you were either a suspected terrorist sympathizer or a pedo. Now we live in a world were everyone just assume we're monitored and GPS tracked 24/7 through our smartphones and nobody even questions it as weird or know why it happened. They fucking made it happen yet they all forgot about it already!! The memetic memory of the collective consciousness is clearly very easily hijacked/brainwashed.

It is of no concern because people who throw internet buzzwords into a discussion, show that they have no intention of having a genuine discussion. You don't get mad at a child for acting immature. So in the same manner you simply disregard those who try to "shut down" a discussion with some epic burns they learned from their favorite twitch streamer.
>>
>>28139982
This can be solved by creating a singular buzzword that represents a super complex topic that is antithetical to homogenization.
We would imbue the buzzword with divergent complex ideas and make the buzzword hostile to mainstream culture by it's very nature.

I guess the closest thing to what I'm talking about is the red pill meme, the original meaning of red pill, like in the movies, not the nazi meaning.

But this anti meme would constantly be updated to include more and more complex ideas and counter culture till it became a nuisance to use in conversation. Here's a word: Pindarel, it will start off meaning the existential dread of homogeneity and entropic tendencies of culture and memes to simplify in meaning, but will grow to mean even more counter cultural thesises until it becomes a super counter culture word.
>>
>>28147134
You could show up to any conversation and speak the forbidden word: Pindarel, and automatically be the smartest counter culture person in the conversation.

>Terminating Thoughts
>While some concepts are useful, others are the exact opposite. These terminating thoughts take complex and useful ideas and turn them into a simplistic cliche that is as incorrect as it is useless. The appeal of these thoughts is that they give a false feeling of certainty and authority, but they block true mental development.
>The functional mind questions and observes. It looks inward at the form of ideas applied in the mind as well as outward in the world. It views uncertainty as the twin sibling of curiosity.
>The dead mind is constructed of terminating thoughts. There is no room for feelings beyond a thin, fragile mockery of self-satisfaction. Personality is replaced with rote, checkbox-ticking behavior and reactivity. Human interaction becomes a grotesque parody where anything that doesn't fall neatly into a simplistic taxonomy of behavior gets ignored or assaulted. This causes a person to become less and less, until ultimately, they vanish.

The homogeneity is the problem. When one asshole's going POGPOGPOGPOGPOG it's a joke.

Only if you let it.
The people who use buzzwords lack the intelligence necessary to have a fruitful discussion to begin with. They only use them to protect their fragile egos because they don't like feeling insecure by potentially being wrong.
Coincidentally, it's also why so many zoomers openly advocate for censorship. They're by far the softest generation to exist in a long time, but also most likely an inevitability right before the collapse of a civilization. Comfort and convenience have made them a bunch of pussies who can't even handle hurt feelings. Sad consumers, raised by corporations, who need the world bubble wrapped for them. It's unsustainable.
I feel pretty bad for those of them who see the others for what they are.

Take this place for instance. Zoomers legitimately think the point of this place is to simply be an asshole and use it like it's their damn therapist so they can vent. They basically act like what the media stereotypes of this place make it out to be. They completely missed the fucking point. Back in the day it was about having fun and doing shit for laughs -- together. Being yourself and enjoying the absurdity of society as a group of outsiders. Edgy assholes and politically obsessed retards were mocked relentlessly back then.
These days, they're so desperate to fit in and to find acceptance that they basically act like walking tropes. It's fucking retarded.
The "meme factory" turned into a bunch of edgy nihilistic retards desperately looking for attention, who are obsessed with politics that they don't even understand or aren't even educated on, while parroting whatever their echo chamber groupthink demands. It's seriously pathetic. It's completely understandable why some people call them "conzoomers."
As I said, I do feel bad for those who see it for what it is, because they're in the minority but have to interact with the goofs daily.

Fellow oldfag here. The "language" of the internet was born on Usenet. The most basic terms that we all take for granted, WTF, STFU, GTFO, LMAO, that all comes from Usenet. And not just the terms, but the specific way that they stifle discussion (as OP describes) was a Usenet phenomenon. Look up the Meow Wars and how they completely killed discussion across the entire site: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meow_Wars
I have a theory that Usenet was a testing ground for psychological/linguistic manipulation, and the techniques that were developed there were codified into something like a science. The Meow Wars were basically an experiment in mass confusion and you can see that template still in use today. There hasn't been much research into this though. I was only around for the very tail end of Usenet so I can't remember much, but there was definitely a lot of overlap between the userbase there and early 4chan.

Do you think that 4chan can have another golden age or is it too late for that?
>>
>>28148382
it's too popular now.
This site belongs to political shitters and reddit tourists.

So do we need a scandal of some sort to renew the site?

Is this projection again? Do you somehow know all my social media and that's why I see you spamming "retard" everywhere? Are you some kind of discord tranny stalking me and that's why you posted a discord server link at the end of this post here? >>28148310

Get in the server I just made and speak and maybe I can help you. I have NO IDEA who you are but if you show me what's going on I might be able to help. For the record I have never seen a "discord tranny" and they most likely do not exist. Stop being a coward and own up to your mistake.
>>
>>28148411
There are other sites already. If you aren't on them that's up to you.
>>
>>28148431
Or I could just not make a mistake and avoid the suspicious link.

Yeah, I mean, he did leave us. Maybe in a new 4chan he would still live as a reminder of this site and what it used to be in the beginning.

Most of them are very slow. Slower than this board. Uboachan is slow, Sushigirl is slow, Crystal Cafe is slower than a snail... If there is a faster alt chan, I would go there.

All of those terms existed long before 1998.
We had internet in 93-94 and they were present almost immediately. That's just with AOL. There were other internet services before even then as well that were basically glorified chatrooms.
I'm not sure what world you're living in.
>>
>>28148464
Shit, then I have to learn more about IT stuff.
I like some pretty niche things, so I wouldn't really consider myself a normalfag, but I still have some friends. I'm kinda in the middle. Would people like me be accepted on a new 4chan?
>>
>>28148478
who cares if they accept you?
>>
>>28148398
This site is sadly a husk of what it once was.
Think about this, back in the day, /b/ would get up to 200,000 posts a DAY.
It was chaos, but it was fun as shit and everyone was here for laughs and fun.
Now it's just coomers, depressed suicidal children, and drooling political retards.
>>
>>28148382
4chan has been bleeding users for a long time, but with the big social media sites getting increasingly insane with censorship, I could see a second golden age happening. People are desperate for free, open discussion. YouTube is on the verge of just banning comments altogether.

It's nothing new. Thought terminating cliches have been used for longer than either of us have been alive. It's just that with the ease of communication, the effect is more obvious. It's really depressing how memebrained people have become. People are literally living their lives based on silly internet jokes, and think that it's others that are stupid.

It's also exposing what kind of crook you most likely are since you have been stalking my IP across like 3 threads now. and you have the gall to tell me to get a life?

>>28140017
yes. it's well known our language shapes our thoughts which shape our beliefs which shape our actions. that was the point of the nazis changing their country's rhetoric over the course of their time in power, and it's part of what inspired newspeak (look into LTI, it chronicles the evolution of language in the third reich, written by a jewish man who journaled/researched/etc it as it was happening). the shrinking of language down to buzzwords is what will destroy shit, not the expansion of language.
>>
>>28161452
good point. language is definitely shrinking down due to the invasive nature of english as the ''universal language of the internet''. so many people have forsaken using their mother tongue in online conversations, and rely on speaking in a foreign language because it's the progressive and cool thing to do. and the problem isn't english itself, but the bastardized internetspeak that is riddled with dead ends. it's a real source of concern.
obviously, i don't think that the mother languages will die. but it's the overriding influence of the globohomo language and the baggage that molds thought into something new that is the problem.

That divide was purposely manufactured and pushed to the extreme in the last 10 or so years.
Before then, you very rarely heard talks of "left and right" when going about day-to-day life.
The elites now use it for the sole purpose of keeping people at each other's throats because it distracts attention away from the awful shit that they participate in.
There's that occupy wall street infographic that shows how they've weaponized the media in order to push paranoia on people and prey on their insecurities using intersectionality, and they've been really successful at doing it, too.

I lived it. Back in the day, politics was pretty rare around here and even more so around the rest of the internet. It just wasn't something people talked about often. In person it was considered rude and a bit taboo, and online people had better shit to do; like find shit to laugh at and, you know, have fucking fun. Your onions memes have literally only existed for a few years. It wasn't until the prominent rise of this mainstream identity politics nonsense that it became more widespread. Now they simply prey on the paranoid and insecure to further push their agenda because it's been so effective at shutting down criticism.

Interesting. That explains why the Chinese were also able to rise to high civilization like whites.

This is absolutely correct. Look around at this board, which is supposed to be for free thinkers. Anything you don't like is cringe. Anything you do like is based. People you disagree with are trannies. People you think are strange are schizos. People here unironically have started to believe that some people are NPCs. They only think in memes and its makes them dumber every day.

based on what?

Nah. That was because we were dumb enough to allow a totalitarian government to join the WTO. It was inevitable after that because they could literally force people to work as (or near) slave labor, undercutting the world on anything.
Add onto that the complacency of world governments being dumb enough to also let China outright steal intellectual properties and other such things, and of course they'll grow into a juggernaut.

So you're using personal experience as an excuse to let this shit keep going and let them stay in power?
You're dependent on the existence of a necessary evil to function

this shit becomes so prevalent during spiritual threads. if it doesn't suck abrahams dick, it becomes bombarded with shills decrying it through and through. everybody's gotta hold onto abrahamism in some way or fashion, whether it be morally or socially or ideologically with its divine cullings and social purges.

>>28169189
Ahh yes, that's some lovely roleplay you have going on there. As if one random insignificant dude could simply say, "hey, cut that shit out," and they'll just simply say, "Oh, ok. Sorry about that."
Clearly you're dependent on paint chips as sustenance to function at such a level.

I couldn't agree with you more. The CIA labels anything that contradicts their reports as conspiracy theories.

sweet summer child, why don't you walk this post back to Yikes Mart, and exchange it for some scientific facts?

You're gonna be waiting a while for them to catch up. Their countries aren't faring particularly well. They're still in the mud hut era. I don't think they have any desire for advancement. But that doesn't mean they're not living life in a way they love and like best. Some countries just have people who want to strive for more.
There's also been plenty who integrated and contributed quite a bit to the society's they've joined for quite a while now.

Learn a bit of history.
Yes, there's a lot of dumb joggers looking to play they victim and act like they're "oppressed" to excuse their shitty life choices and laziness, but even today there's some great minds such as Clarence Thomas, who has undeniably contributed immensely, or even Thomas Sowell -- who I genuinely consider to be one of the most brilliant minds of our time.

yeah any advice on increasing reading time on a smartphone ? the attention deficit disorder is a real problem
>>
>>28172502
One must consider the context and the medium too. Modern media works by making noise. If a picture is worth a thousand words then most people read hundreds of novels worth of imagery and instruction daily.

Start there with the attention deficit? Learn up on it.

The saddest part is the solipsistic newfags who think the point of this place is to be edgy retards for malicious reasons and that it's the way it's always been.
They don't understand that the "insults" used and the way people acted was all part of the "inside joke." Society said people who acted like that were hateful and angry, so it was done to show the absurdity of how stupid it is to take words so seriously.
Back then it was all about being yourself and having fun. The damn motto around here was "for the lulz" for crying out loud.
If you went to different boards, you would meet an entirely difficult groups of people, as you said, who had their own little thing going on.
They really don't know how damn fast the threads in this place moved. A thread could slide off page 10 in less than 3 or minutes. Only the best threads could cling on longer, and even then they'd hit bump limits in no time.
Back then, /b/ alone would get something like 150-200,000 posts a day. There was always something going on and it was almost always hilarious.
The biggest problem at the time wasn't coomers or politically obsessed retards, but fags making spam bots for their clone boards — typically as a thinly veiled excuse to find others in CP. I remember how everyone fucking loathed those assholes.
But overall, it was like catching lightning in a bottle; this place was almost magical in the way it operated.
But all good things come to an end.

this spirit is no longer present on the internet, and that's very saddening

Have to bubble wrap everything.
Zoomers don't like feeling even the slightest bit insecure about anything. So the world has to cater to their fragile ego and low self-esteem.
Just having fun and realizing not everything is some existential crisis is completely lost on them. Because they're shut-ins living life through a screen, they begin to feel like they're the only ones who matter. We really need bullies to make a big comeback and beat the hell out of kids as they grow up. This carebear shit is getting ridiculous. They've lost their balls to the point of either paying for the "privilege" of looking at fucking pictures of girls and simping for them, or just straight-up tossing on a skirt and mutilating their bodies so they can get the same attention. Then they proceed to treat it like it's their therapist and vent their depression and misery on others.
Basically, that old meme from back in the day is now true: "the internet is serious business!"
Sadly, what really needs to happen is that the internet — excluding academic shit — needs to be off-limits to them. Slap an 18+ age limitation or restrict accessibility to an hour a day. Because they are completely braincucked consumers who forgot that life exists outside of the internet — and it's matters significantly more. They'd probably be a thousand times happier, too.
The internet should be fun.

It seems you went for seconds on the paint chips and doubled-down on the make-believe. If I'm some "rich elite," then someone needs to explain why I was never told and where the fuck all my money is.

>>28173786
Growing up I remember that old rhyme: "Sticks and stone may break my bones but words can never hurt me."
Apparently that's lost these days because the wrong words can cause a full nervous breakdown in kids now. The result of far too much peace and comfort.
>>
>>28173856
a lot of the reason why that rhyme was forgotten is that people have convinced themselves that they cant control their own brains and that their reactions are predetermined by chemicals in their brains.

Sounds absolutely retarded. It's no wonder they lack all types of emotional maturity.
