>tfw the best way to serve justice to the people, racial unity to those states that already have it, and to achieve high levels of economic prosperity under capitalism without consequently ceding power to oligarchs is under the monarch/aristocracy
I wonder why the publicized extremums are national socialism and communism---both populist and thereby liberal ideologies---and the moderate center is democracy, a populist liberal ideology.

My leftist book club wants to read some fascist literature. All the fascists of /lit/, you have a chance of making a few leftists into whatever you are. Recommend the best possible book that advocates for fascism (no conspiracy bullshit, but something that is actually based on rational thinking)

Fascism isn't based on literature or rational thought, and most fascists have been quite clear on this point.

Maybe you would be interested in reading The Pike: Gabriele D'Annunzio, Poet, Seducer and Preacher of War. Its a sympathetic look at the man who invented fascism.

Alright so I'm new to this whole reading for pleasure thing. My gf convinced me to start with John Green and so far I'm loving his books, the dude knows how to write and I find myself relating a lot to his protagonists, especially Miles in Looking for Alaska. Anyway, I'm wondering where I go from here. I'm almost done with all John Green books and as great as they are they sometimes come across as a little juvenile. I want some books like his but a little more mature. Thanks

Tried this thread on X, told to come here

So I'm writing a novel, possible series. It, for now at least, is about a cop and reporter hunting a serial killer who may be an actual vampire.

I'm having a lot of fun using some minor red pill stuff about lilith, cain, serpent seed, moloch, all this religious imagry as the backstory to this killer

The Vampire is hiding amongst a group of hardcore Vampire LARPers and the rule book for the larpers has a bunch of stuff about lilith, demons, cain, all that good stuff. As I work on this book and get ideas ready for follow ups I just want to throw some of my ideas out there to see if you guys think theres any traction to them

So the Killer leaves messages about the coming "Dark One" described as the first born son of Cain and Lilith.

The Golden Calf that tempted the Israelites after the exodus is said to have possibly been the canaanite god Moloch

Carthage is referenced, as is there blood rituals and child sacrifice

RH- blood is a big part of the science of the book, all vampires are RH- and only an RH- human can be turned. Also that - blood is special and it's theorized that the line goes all the way back to ancient egypt, carthage, ect and there may be a cult of people who have been, through selective breeding, keep the recessive RH- gene alive through the ages.

Not in book one, but I plan to dive into the serpent seed theory, that Cain was borne of Eve and the serpent and the big overall villians are going to be the Canaanites preparing for the coming of the anti-christ and the final war to destroy humanity.

So these are the kinds of ideas I'm exploring in my book, anyone have some other stuff that might fit with this, been falling down Bitchute rabbit holes to get ideas (Have to filter out all the stuff about jews...but that might be a discussion for another time ;) )

There is an illustrated dictionary or something. But I wouldn't bother, anon. It is not like I'm going to live in an Anglo country. You could try thinking about your own life, and search for words for everything in English, turn them into flashcards or something. It is not something that I would bother, but if you feel like it, seems like a decent approach.

You are not anything close to the original texts.
The original texts where absolutely ridiculed by intellectuals in Rome and Greece for being of a crude and simplistic full of grammatical and spelling errors. So much so that during Julian the Apostate some Christians rewrote the biblical history in Homeric hexameter and the Epistles and the Gospels in to Socratic dialogues.

When you say “about polygamy,” what exactly do you mean? No Man Knows My History is a biography of Joseph Smith. It goes into incredible well-researched detail about the polygamy system in place in the early Mormon church. It describes how exactly polygamous marriages worked, who was involved, and how it affected the people involved.

i read a couple of his books in high school. i liked them for what they were.

one was from the odd thomas series. another was basically a thriller about a psycho who leaves notes to the person telling them he's going to kill them before killing them. i remember after he gets caught and is put in jail, the hero guy goes to visit him and the psycho goes on a spiel about how strange it is that black people ejaculated white semen, it didn't make any sense for him.

thought that was a great, deranged detail.

I don't know how they are using the word "subject" here, but doesn't this go against Marx's two ideas of "human: 1 that we manipulate nature to eat/drink/live, 2: our manipulation of nature is always social - as in production occurs with other people.
