Blacks, I have a question.

In several years I have amassed several devices such as keyboards, webcam, kinect, a gaymer PC, two drawing tablets, a gaymer gamepad, in addition to having the license of several indies game development programs.

Then I have the doubt, what I just did, in such a natural way and that it is to invest in my hobby as productivity to be more efficient.

Isn't this the accumulation of capital, the thing that automatically turns me into a bloody capitalist bourgeoisie?

So wouldn't this be like being an enemy of the Marxist model because now I own capital and obviously capital is evil according to the communists?

The sergeant had a word to say about them. 'I know the stars,' he said. 'Steer by that star yonder and you make Tunis.'

'Are you from Tunis?'

'No. My cousin, she is.'

A long silence. But the sergeant could not keep anything back.

'I'm going to Tunis one of these days.'

Not, I said to myself, by making a bee-line for that star and tramping across the desert; that is, not unless in the course of some raid a dried-up well should turn the sergeant over to the poetry of delirium. If that happened, star, cousin, and Tunis would melt into one, and the sergeant would certainly be off on that inspired tramp which the ignorant would think of as torture.

He went on. 'I asked the captain for leave to go to Tunis, seeing my cousin is there and all. He said . . .'

'What did the captain say, sergeant?'

'Said: 'World's full of cousins.' Said: 'Dakar's nearer' and sent me there.'

'Pretty girl, your cousin?'

'In Tunis? You bet! Blonde, she is.'

'No, I mean at Dakar.'

Sergeant, we could have hugged you for the wistful disappointed voice in which you answered, 'She was a nigger.'
What did he mean by this

How much reading is necessary? Is it just a question of 'just enough knowledge'? A matter of 'once you have the message, hang up the phone'? Or is it necessary to follow the history of poetry and philosophy through the ages and places? At a time of confusion I comforted myself by applying the word 'idiosyncrasy' to all the world's myths, legends, folktales and traditions, the idea being that the form that these myths assume is not the whole story, though neither is it entirely irrelevant. The shape of a myth, when all the forking branches of the tree are accounted for, will reveal the sum of a culture, a history, a story of all the greater and lesser gods of a people, so to speak. But of equal importance is the spatial and creative relations between the forking branches, specifically the permutations over time, the outliers — the transformative processes by which myth is propogated, diluted, renewed, forked, dissolved.
This is necessarily a study in secondary sourcing. But what if, taking the world for the myth it is, we turned to the primary source that is available to all of us directly, has always been available to us directly, and perhaps as a result, swept under the rug. The emergence of a self from the primordial mud and mirth of childhood, the development of linguistic and symbolic associations, the fall from innocence into the corporeal world that occurs in adolescence, all of this forms a direct parallel to the awakening of man from prehistory into literature, history, and recognition.
Is it possible the knowledge that humanty's most ancient myths and rites tempts us with us directly accessible by a comprehensive study of the magical and ritualistic thinking that we all experienced in childhood? Is it moreover possible, that the allure of ancient myth and prehistoric consciousness, is in fact itself a projection of the lost world of childhood?

How am I to learn about Hinduism if everything in English/The West is pozzed? I was honestly surprised he called out Vivekanada, I thought he would be one of the few he would approve of, I loved that Swami's lectures on YouTube. They felt authentic, but I guess Guenon would completely disagree.
