I agree with everything except the 4th statement

We don't know for sure if barbarism will triumph, although maybe just based on entropy, this is in fact true

So you're too stupid to judge the argument, right? Anyway, where's the hypocrisy? He never stated that civilization and its products are necessarily bad because they're unnatural; you can't derive an ought from an is after all.

Ironic since Conan is mostly civilized by the time he became king of Aquilonia. He left Cimmeria as a youth and never associated with those rubes again. Conan liked civilization more than Howard.

So then why must (v. be obliged to; should (expressing necessity)) barbarism triumph if not for reasons of value?

It's in the fucking quote you idiot

>> No.10997958

>>10997036
This is correct. Barbarism and Civilization are not mutually exclusive terms. Consider a more likely term: savagery.
>savagery is the natural state of mankind.
Is it? It could easily be argued that 'mankind' itself emerges out of savagery, etc. Howard's way too loose with words.

Holy fuck you guys are retarded. Dinosaurs were natural, did they triumph? No, they fucked died. He obviously didn't imply that and would have said "therefore will always ultimately triumph", not "must always ultimately triumph".
