>One can only HOPE that things don't just keep going as they are, because then there will be nothing left.

From 1914 to 1945, over a hundred million people were slaughtered in cold blood. What did we do after? Right back to killing. Nearly five million people died in Korea. More than half of these–about ten percent of Korea's prewar population–were civilians. This rate of civilian casualties was higher than World War II's and the Vietnam War's. So, yeah, I think it stands to reason we're pretty much fucked. Sorry, class of 2100!

We interrupt your scheduled bickering for this important announcement: Understanding /phi/

  • What this board is:
    • A place to discuss epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, metaphysics, and logic, in a general sense, or in an applied sense (in sex, science, vidya, your mother).
    • A place where not only is being a pretentious, hubristic dickhead is allowed, but is considered the norm.
  • What this board is not:
    • It is not /b/, /x/, or /rnb/.
    • A place to spew incoherent nonsense and verbal diarrhea.
    • A place to make claims with no justifications (and "because I say so" or "because you're gay" isn't a justification).
    • A place where the global rules do not apply.
An inability to follow these conventions will result in a warning!
Repeat offenders will be banned!

i wonder how all us millennials turn out
our attitude towards the struggle in transitioning from child to adult can either be anger directed towards the economic system or towards those who raised us unprepared (liberal parenting, university system)
it’s definitely a combination of both, but i think the latter deserves more scrutiny. It’s easier to fix and coming to terms with it will make you happier than understanding economic injustices. I can’t conceive of a world in which communism succeeds, marx created or re-appropriated the term exploitation and makes value judgments about the economy that make sense only through a certain lens. I don’t think this viewpoint will ever gain majority support, it’s an anti humanistic theory in the way it assumes victim hood for poor people, they are “exploited” beyond control. The theory reduces people to non-autonomous beings when in reality there can be many reasons people do not succeed economically. In a communistic society would you even be responsible for your own feelings and emotions? A murderer must surely be held morally accountable, which already seems to contradict the idea that poverty is an injustice. In both systems people MUST be held morally accountable therefore its all a matter of preference. Which moral lens do you choose to view from? It would help greatly if the communists clearly set their moral standards, in doing so they would admit to the fact that humans have autonomy and moral obligation. Capitalism clearly sets its own standards and has its own moral code embedded in the way the economy functions, in rewarding certain members of society more than others. Communism has no replacement, and coupled with social liberalism has nothing to say about the value of individual behavior whatsoever. In order to move forward the left must rework or forget marx, the rise of the alt right and Trump’s presidency have made this clear.

Yet capitalism is literally causing human extinction as we speak. Destroying the environment because it's hilariously profitable.

Aren't you confusedsing communism for neoliberalsism?
Communism was all about accountability.
In the Soviet Union, punishment was brutal. They sent people to gulags to be reformed.

Also, liberalism is the foundation of Western society. Liberalism I'd what allows people to have autonomy. It's what allows people to agree to disagree.
Without liberalism, you either have fascism or communism.

Communism does have moral precedents. They emphasize labor and harsh punishment for crime.

Yes, but capitalism revolves around profit. They reward exploitation not honesty.

How many of you believed the lies and American propaganda about Nazi Germany in the 1930's and how they were at most only a "new" and "work-wear," 'work-wear' as in LITERALLY only "work based." Are you fucking kidding me? The American CIA for years since the 1940's made the Nazi Germany "propaganda" look like Germany was some sort of Christian superpower when it logically, evidentially, and factually was not and still is not. Language-wise they give up easily many of their "responsibility"and "moral freedoms." Then there's the huge irresponsibility of Paul Joseph Goebbels for not just straight up calling the enemies Pharisees and Satanists. Stupid idiot. Tom Hasselhoff sucked Gordon Danning from UC Berkeley in Berkeley, CA, USA and so do weird little patzies. Please leave me the fuck alone because you are going to get the dog shit slapped the fuck out of you just like your fathers did.

>George Washington joined the Masonic Lodge in Fredericksburg, Virginia, at the age of twenty in 1752. During the War for Independence, General Washington attended Masonic celebrations and religious observances in several states. He also supported Masonic lodges that formed within army regiments.
>Such was Washington’s character, that from almost the day he took his Masonic obligations until his death, he became the same man in private that he was in public. In Masonic terms, he remained “a just and upright Mason.” Brother Washington was, in Masonic terms, a “living stone” who became the cornerstone of American civilization.

The American Constitution is the founding document that supposedly promotes freedom for individuals regardless of creed or religion but when you look at who wrote this document it becomes fairly obvious that all this is a mere reflection of slave owning anarchists that refused to obey others. It stipulates that people have a right to bare arms and own land but with what justification? The constitutional rights espoused in the U.S.A seem to be nothing more than the extension of self-righteous egotism that in the modern day society results in mass shootings and exploitation of other people. It's not about building a functional society, it's about protecting oneself from everything that goes against your own interests.

No, they're not fictional. Again, not all kids are external affect. Kids can be overcome with emotion to the point of paralyzed affect.

Also, there's neurodivergent ones. There's babies that don't cry at birth.

By mentioning "neurodivergent" (everything from schizophrenia to ADHD) you just prove my point.

Blerd seems to be made for black people who feel unconfortable is the vastly white environment of nerd culture, so apparently they moved away and made their own thingy
What sense does it make to create diffrent spaces for diffrent ethnicies? Isnt that the opposite of fighting for tolerance? I think the dream is to have people of all ethnicies feel confortable in any space and with each other, to make every space a safe space in regard to your skin color, not to move away so whites can be with whites and blacks with blacks.
I understand that back people felt ostracised in the convensional nerd spaces, but it seems that now white people are also being ostracised when they enter the blerd zone. How tf is this helping anyone achieving an inclusive society? Are we really going to beat racism by promoting ethnic/cultural segragation? Can't we all learn to include whites and blacks in the nerd scene whithout creating ethnic safe spaces that will inevitably lead us to enjoy the things we like only with people of the same skin color as us?
We invented nerd, why can't we reshape it into somehing more inclusive that better reflects our (more modern) views of the world?
If a black person feels unconfortable in a mostly white work environment, i belive it would make a lot more sense to re-educate said work environment, not only for said white people to be more inclusive of their black co-worker, but also to promote more black people hirings in the future. In this sense, blerd is the equivalent of creating a separate office or busines for blacks only, is that really the smartest move towards defeating racism?
I know preaching tolerance, changing the world one mind at a time, and fighting our way towards a racism free world is a lot of hard work, and segragation is a lot easier if all we want is to have a safe space not be judged by others. But the easiest way is not always the best, reshaping nerd culture into an inclusive one may be hard work, but i think its definitely better (on the long run at least) than to sub divide it based on skin color and make it so that nerd white people dont have to deal with nerd black people and vice versa.Lets not give in to racism and create diffrent spaces for people with diffrent skin colors to live without having to deal with cultural diversification. Lets instead fight racism and make nerd culture a multicolored one.
I want to know what is the general perception of people on this stuff, is blerd perfectly fine to you as black people "moving on" from white people nerd spaces, what are your thoughts on it?

What you say is valid but as we all know, things like these are complicated. Humans are far too attached to castes.

This is why I say individuality is relative.
