    YOU’RE SINGLING TRUMP OUT BECAUSE HE’S ALREADY HATED BY MANY. HE’S AN EASY TARGET AND YOU EXPLOIT THAT CHANCE TO GET MORE FOLLOWERS.
    Trump style tactics.

    Of course he’s America-centric. He’s an American politician.
    Forget your dreams of world dominion. This is a world of sovereign states and autonomous peoples. We’re not the same and we’re not in the same boat.

    Being an expert does not mean being unbiased or all-knowing. Experts know that there are many solutions, but they pick their favourites in various ways. Some pick the easiest/laziest option. Many pick the option they get paid to endorse.

    It’s not human numbers or hunger that is really causing the problems. Irresponsibility and unsustainable methods are.

    Environmentalist politicians don’t give a damn about polluted oceans because you can’t fish for votes or bribes with that, while bloated lesser issues like CO2 is very lucrative business.

    The problem with humans and society is that the threshold and outcome are always set by the very worst individuals. It’s not a particular demographic or class that ruins things, it’s the worst individuals of each one.

    What the hell is community need anyway? Look at the communities today, compare them with communities of the olden days… they had less resources and less rules yet they worked better than the ones of today.

    Community need is bullshit.

    As for no interest in practical stuff… well, that’s just a matter of habit. Just remember… if you don’t change things you aren’t entitled to complain about the way things are.

    Preventing? Haha, rubbish.

    People are stupid and bring this shit upon themselves. Yeah there are so-called puppeteers out there, but they can’t do anything unless you let them. Now, we live in a semi-democracy which is ruled by the stupid masses, and whoever pleases these stupid monkeys gets whatever they want. Power, money, obedience, etc.

    People want to throw their souls away to some mighty ass-hat who can offer them security and comfort.

    That’s the only reason we have such as fucked up system.

    Don’t blame the players, blame the idiots who made the game. That’s the masses, every individual among them.

    Actually, you’ll be a lot more efficient if you’re playing when you’re working… as in being inspired and working on things that you actually consider worthwhile and stimulating, rather than mindmumbing work which you do just because you want something else out of it.

    Always have fun in whatever you’re doing, you can make anything fun. And if you can’t find a way to have fun with something, don’t do it, it’s a waste of time.

    Likewise, playing and relaxing is work, maintenance work to be more specific. It’s just as important in the process as active working time is. If you don’t relax and play, you can’t focus and you can’t work hard, therefore they are crucial tasks.
    And if you don’t work, your mind can’t rest, which makes it a crucial part of relaxation.

    The ideal situation where you have both fun and discipline in every daily activity.
    THAT is the definition of winning.

    The Fable of the Zen Master

  • 2011-08-19 @ 10:17:29

    Oh yeah, I want to suggest a movie that should DEFINITELY be on the list.
    Interstate 60.

    It’s so deep and very insightful. It handles many issues of the world, like drugs and greed, but it still manages to be both funny and beautiful.
    It revolves a lot around the human mind and subjects like truth, beliefs, love, death, slavery, politics and mysticism. But at the same time, it’s just a weird road movie. That’s what’s so cool about it, they manage to fuse everything together very nicely.

    I can’t tell you much about the story, because that would spoil pretty much everything. It’s not a very well-known movie, but it’s quite a big production and there are several famous actors in it.
    I can’t describe this movie with words, you must see it to understand.

    I can’t stress enough how good this film is.

    25 Spectacular Movies You (Probably) Haven’t Seen

  • 2011-08-18 @ 10:51:21

    I’ve seen some of these (mostly the more well-known ones like Lebowski, which is one of my favourites) and I definitely have to check the rest out.

    Let the right one in can be very hard to grasp, it’s a Swedish film so it’s weird. All Swedish films are like that, even the comedies. I didn’t like it that much, but it’s a nice movie still.

    The only one of these films I don’t understand how people like is Spirited away. Now I haven’t watched the whole thing but I found it very boring and pointless. Just my opinion tho.

    YES. I’ve been doing this stuff for a pretty long time now, and it’s the key to success and well-being.

    Sadly, most of the people on this site won’t apply this to their lives, even if they claim to do so. Just reading the discussions proves this.

    This Will MindFuck You: Videogame-ism

  • 2011-07-28 @ 03:43:56

    So true.

    I think one of the biggest problems is people’s definition of love. When they say love, they’re actually talking about totally different things that aren’t love. The worst of all are all the “love films” which are just steaming piles of drama and pseudo-romantic nonsense. That’s all about a lack of love, not about love.

    Codependency, neediness, clinginess, monogamy, etc. is NOT love, it’s fear. Yet people say it’s the other way around, and keep on living miserable lives without questioning their dumb definitions.

    Love is all you need.
