Vakna upp en dag
Känna åldern i nacken
Älska tills slutet av veckan
Livet nu, morgonens dagg

Vi brukade vara så glada
Vi brukade ändå skita i allt
Men nu lever vi livet utan stadga
Leva livet till slutet så snabbt

Nu tar vi det lugnt bara standar för en stund
Vad har vi gjort med den tiden vi fått
Vad hände med kärleken vi tog emot

Bara vakna den dagen i framtiden
Bor i city för att tjäna på livet
Men vad gör vi med samtiden
Bara önska att allt gjort inte är skrivet

Stå och vänta på frågetecknet tillsammans
Kanske jag övertänker
Dricka för att alkoholen täcker problemen
Att narkotikan problemen övertäcker

If he set this book in the present at say Starbucks he'd be a laughingstock. (BUT at least he'd have made money off it.) It's the air of antiquity that confers on it a contrived dignity. So he's not a genius but, rather, doubly stupid: he wrote something insipid and made fuck all off it.

I get the feeling he's just going to continue into mad idiocy, divulging ever further away from the self awareness of dignity. He has become prey to the zeitgeist of our time and because of this sees only material, mistakes its difficulty for the impossibility of spirit. This is of course all untrue, however remains a genuine contemplative depth, emotionality, none the less.

His earlier videos were better, and his first, probably his best. Not sure if him and Paul Joseph Watson are still friends but they obviously were at some point considering how often one would show the other in their videos.

Honestly having a tl;dr section before a philosophy document is something I can only think of in a positive way.
It helps people with deciding if reading through the entire thing is of interest to them since it might take effort from the reader to fully appreciate it and not have them drop out halfway which would make them feel even worse about it.

Nansen saw the monks of the eastern and western halls fighting over a baby cat. He seized the cat and said, "If any of you can say a word of Zen, you can spare the cat. Otherwise I will kill it." No one could answer. So Nansen cut the cat in two .

That evening Joshu returned and Nansen told him what had happened. Joshu thereupon took off his sandals and, placing them on his head, walked away. Nansen said, "If only you had been there, you could have saved the cat."

Can one classic be objectively better than another classic?
Numerous books have been written throughout history and most of them were lost. If there weren't some discernible quality to the classics, they wouldn't have survived. Maybe you don't get what a classic is classic for, but someone else does, so you can't objectively claim a classic as bad.
Do you agree?
