Humans make most of it and shove it in your face with twisted values.

>Bringing a sentient creature into the world forces them to experience life with all its misery.
If you owned a business and had a fruitful job children are fine. The big problem is overpopulation, also created by man to ensure there are tax payers for their evils.

You are a person who, for whatever reason, cannot separate modern life from individual sentient experience, which is the same for all of time.

As I said earlier in this thread, any reference to the current social, political, or economic situation avoids looking at existence in its bare form.

Regardless of income, livelihood, or business opportunity, existence falls short and remains subject to life's innumerable ills (which are outweighed by its joys).

Keep in mind, the Buddha rejected wealth. Schopenhauer, the great Western synthesizer of Eastern thought, was born into a life of excess and opportunity and dedicated himself to exploring the why's of existence when he found it repugnant and meaningless.

I've been getting my toes wet in philosophy for a couple days now, and I've figured out that I strongly associte with the idea of materialistic determinism. Who are some essential writers to familiarise myself to develop this new interest? I'm not opposed to having my views challenged.

Also, I'm kind of retarded, so I'd prefer some easier reads if possible.

What about this principle? ("if K (P - > ~ Q), then ~ k (~ Q) - > ~ k (P)") (if you know (P implies non-Q, then you don't know non-Q implies don't know P)

I learnt about that Nozick gave an anti skeptical argument based on this principle from Jesper Kallestrup's "Semantic Externalism "(New Problems of Philosophy),but I think his argument confused the image (electrical signal) of our "foot" in the brain in the vat with our actual foot (if we have one).

I entered the Faculty of Economics because my boyfriend went to study there. I didn't really understand where and why I was entering, but I followed him. Passed all the exams, entered. The study went smoothly until the moment when a huge number of written works began to be asked. Here https://assignmentmasters.org/economics-homework.html/ I found detailed information about where and how to find an author who can help me write. The result satisfied me, I will apply again.

Friends, I'm dying for direction. What I want is Solipsism as a topic handled from an Existential standpoint, not epistemologically. I want to learn about how Hollywoodian Solipsism effects our mentality and turns us into self-serving drones. I know that might be too opinionated and specific so I am also fine with anything that touches it tangentially. If you have any thoughts on the issue yourself I'd love to hear it.

Does anyone talk about how neolib education is largely a racquet and way for owners and managers to screen out stupid and lazy applicants?

Nobody talks about it this way because it's not this way. There is no basis for your claims. You are looking at the entirety of the education system through a distorted lens fitting to your (what I assume is your) anti-establishment/anti-neoliberalism/capitalism/whatnot rhetoric. I'm going to assume you didn't do very well in school either, which leads in part to the poor spelling (it's not the education system's fault you can't differentiate between homophones, it's your fault) and biased view towards to anything education related. My question is to you: If education is just a big neoliberal scheme and blah blah blah I ask you one question: What does a perfect education system look like? One that does not prepare student for jobs, because you have obviously shown a negative stance towards job preparation. A school favored towards the stupid and lazy? One that holds everybody's hands and makes sure every single student has a jolly merry old time throughout their studies? It's very foolish and I request that you think twice before shitting up the board with d-tier stoner thoughts.

I'm sure there is quite a bit of marxist social theory as well as perhaps some Durkheimian sociology that deals with this very topic of school shaping people in order to meet the labour demands of the economy.

Everything that is needed for a good understanding of the academic discipline can only be achieved through a long and detailed study of educational materials, because no one but you will drive this into your head. For example, not too long ago I was looking for the best college preparatory courses for my child, and this helpful comparison article https://edureviewer.com/prep-expert-vs-princeton-review/ helped me a lot. I am not going to overpay and it is important for me to know that the process of preparing for the tests will be really successful.
