Alright. But I also don't want to decrease the weight of my deep inferiority complex by implying that I have a superiority complex by bringing up my narcissism problem.

Coincidence doesn't exist.

My hatred of women has settled into an interesting equilibrium of, on the one hand, hating them in the same way I hate a spoiled yappy bratty kid I don't want anything to do with, and on the other hand, never being able to block them out of my life because I still want to fuck them

Every time I see a woman with her ass hanging out of her shorts and I'm instinctively driven to look at her stupid buttcheeks I feel personal failure to resist the pathetic animal side of me, and deep annoyance that these red-assed baboons are allowed to run free as perpetual distractions despite contributing nothing to humanity in return

Bois, I don't have it. I used to think I was a good writer. Did creative writing classes, got my MFA, was praised at every step along the way by professors. My most recent advisor said I had a good chance of winning Yale Younger Poets prize. But I just went through my first round of rejections and I already feel defeated.

so what is the scenario if I am wrong. the thing is that there are really two issues, one that is surmountable and one that is really hard to oversee. It was the former that made me act but now it has created a chance to do something about the latter. She should be fine. There are two scenarios for her being upset: 1. she thinks I'm in a dangerous mental health crisis (not so and by far the most likely of the two); 2. she doubts that I love her, she's having some abandonment-issue reaction. Either of these could put her under quite severe stress.

What is the value of moving forward as I have been going? I acted the way that I did because I couldn't think of any productive way of expressing myself, and I could think of a number of unproductive ways and I suspected I could end up going with one of these unproductive ways. It was really just one thing, it didn't have to establish a pattern over time. I can't tell her that everything is alright or gonna be alright, I thought about it but I can't. Most likely I won't be able to talk to her for a while because I don't want to have to pretend things are ok anymore. I want to get peace and quiet to figure out where I'm really at. That should be ok, I told her multiple times that I'm ok, she should be able to live with what is happening right now. What if she's not though.

And what if I am trying to make her hurt? If I am I think it's because I can't communicate any other way. We have a dysfunctional relationship, there's no doubt about that. If I am it is in order that she can live closer to reality, so that we can have a more genuine relationship. This is almost certainly not productive if it is what is happening, not in itself at least but it at the very least would be a development.

There' this part of the middle class in my spic country who clearly lives in a weird denial about USA.
They all consume American movies, love them, have Netflix, watch American shows mostly, listen to American music, have American cliches imprinted in their minds, a big part of their favourite artists are americans and still if you ask them if you were to ask them if they find USA interesting, they would say they don't.
That America sucks, that Americans are dumb etc.

It's scary when you realize that the real powers behind America in the 1950s knew this is how things were going to be, if they could just infect every country on earth with their culture, and force any country that tried to wall itself off to open itself up to American culture, "infrastructure" investments, and fundamentally start thinking of itself in terms of "higher GDP=better, no matter what."

They knew this is how they would conquer, and it worked. Another generation and people won't even remember they are a distinct country. They will get all of their thoughts direct from Los Angeles TV producers and internet shit soup culture controlled from Silicon Valley.

How did you feel when you found out the truth? How did you feel when everything finally fell in place? Because what I felt, at least at first, was an incredible dread, something that I had never felt before in my life: complete and utter despair, along with a new sensation of what could probably be described as "horror", and from that moment on my life was never the same again, no matter how hard I tried to keep it together, no matter how much I wanted to deny it, no matter how much I wanted to "just live". At one moment I'm having a normal day, and at the next something...just happens, if I had an ounce of poet inside of me I could probably describe it better, that horrid sensation of everything coming together and something else shattering irreparably forever.

What is my life now? what has my life been ever since? God, I'm absolutely miserable. There is not a single day I don't think about it, about what we are, it doesn't scare me anymore, but it fills me with an immense sadness. It's painful, everything is, I understand that pain and emptiness is all we ARE in the end, but we try to hide it, to sugarcoat it, well, I can't do much but surrender utterly to it, I'm tired of desperately looking for a light, there wont be relief for me, no hope. One day I'll simply cease to exist, but the moments right before that, among the pain and despair, this painful life, and all of its horrors, will feel like nothing more than a nightmare.

This "truth" I have with me, this understanding feels so dangerous, so evil even, that I just can't bring myself to share it with anyone I love, it feels like a cruelty. I see people living happily and peacefully on their illusions and I feel glad for them, I feel glad that they are ignorant of...of THIS, and when I see other people working so hard to shatter their illusions I can't help but wonder why, do they really understand what it feels like, to be stripped of every single hope? do they have their own illusions but believe them to be real? are they simply full of malice themselves? I grew up believing that the truth was the most important thing, that comfortable lies are worthless, we must research, I thought, we must question everything, we must tear down all the lies in this world. Where did it lead me? to an everlasting nightmare, was it worth it? I do not wish this on anyone. How could something so good, I thought, something that was supposed to lead us to the light, lead us to the darkest pit instead? But then I understood that this, this was the light, the brightest, most terrible light.

I condemned myself to live like this, for the rest of my days.

In my dream last night there was a mini fridge full of lime Fanta.
I've never seen or had lime Fanta in my life so naturally I was intrigued.
But as soon as I took a sip of the Fanta all I could taste was orange.
Confused, I look down at the can and it changes into a standard orange Fanta, seamlessly, like a chameleon changing colors.
It is also important to note that all the Fantas in the fridge were still lime.
Despite this trickery I remain completely unbothered and continue enjoying the now orange Fanta.

The fucking Savannah Brown thread and the god damn Waldun thread. As if literature wasn't mocked enough, as if it's grave hadn't yet been totally desecrated, we have these budding shitblooms heralding a simulation like none other. The writer now livecasts themselves, writes in parallel to a cultivated community of sycophants. Their following, a herd content with blind support and consuming shallow ilk, gets all the benefits of calling themselves Very Refined Consumers, since the artistic endeavor (if it can be so called) is contained in a baby play-pen of NO CRITICISM ALLOWED. If one critiques, they are met with the invincible modern defense of "let people enjoy things!!!" All the while, weekly or daily uploads are shit into their hungry mouths because ultimately, they watch to pretend that they are like them, or at least involved in an artistic process by proxy.

God forbid someone tell a pretty girl her writing is shit. Savannah Brown is still young and pretty and hip and fashionable enough that any wrong words bring the ire of her idolators. Of course, to say that Waldun is shit is acceptable, since he is a young man, though barely so. But who would stand and say this whole trajectory is disgusting, and that it's fruits have proved rotten time and time again? I mean, these fucks only exist in a padded echo chamber, why should anyone care? And it is exactly that resignation that puts a straight jacket on any person who asks for basic literary standards.

Narcissism involves deep inferiority masked by displays of superiority. Narcissists don't go into a homicidal rage when someone bests them because they're deeply secure people. They do it because they're painfully aware of their inferiority and constantly seek reassurance they're not as broken as they are.

In a 1976 study anthropologist Jane M. Murphy, then at Harvard University, found that an isolated group of Yupik-speaking Inuits near the Bering Strait had a term (kunlangeta) they used to describe “a man who … repeatedly lies and cheats and steals things and … takes sexual advantage of many women—someone who does not pay attention to reprimands and who is always being brought to the elders for punishment.” When Murphy asked an Inuit what the group would typically do with a kunlangeta, he replied, “Somebody would have pushed him off the ice when nobody else was looking.”

I know the world likes to hate on your kind, unjustly, and I think you're worth more than the meme of autism.

They just say: "I understand you."

I recently took a week-long break from the internet and all of my electronics; no laptop, no smartphone, no TV, etc., just me in my basement with my e-reader. I started getting up early in the mornings and drinking coffee and enjoying the sunset, I read more in that week than I've ever read at once before (three goodsized non-fiction books finished in a week!) and I felt better than I ever have. I realized three things during that week: First, that there is no such thing as free-time, and we are capable of achieving so much more than we give ourselves credit for; second: it's easy to overlook just how much time is wasted on the internet consooming pointless media, and third: I personally discovered a newfound love for literature and reading in general, and being elitist about what kind of books I choose to read does me more harm than good. I'm really being more conscious and selective of how I spend my time on the internet, which means I will be spending a lot less time here too. It's funny how, when I went a day without coming here I felt like I missed a ton, but after a week of self-exile, I feel like I haven't missed anything at all; I actually found myself a little disappointed that absolutely nothing had changed/happened.

One of the books I read was pic rel, which is basically a guide to classically self-educating yourself. It talks about the Trivium and classical methods of learning and reading, very useful stuff; one of the things it said was essential was to have a friend who can read along with you, someone you can deeply discuss the books you're reading with, and someone to whom you can compare your notes. I have no friends and nobody who would be interested in doing that with me in real life, and I was thinking about asking if somebody wanted to join me here, but I realize that most of the books on her reading list (the list i'm interested in is her Novels section, and it goes in chronological order, starting with Don Quixote and ending with The Road) have either already been read by anybody who's serious about reading, or won't be of interest to most people. I highly recommend the book either way, and I hope you guys have a good day

What to do to overcome paralyzing fear

So what I have learned to do, that I want to remind you (and myself) of and encourage us all to practice more often, is this:

First, acknowledge fear – don’t ignore it: Tell yourself that you know you are feeling scared and that the fear is real. Be mindful and in the moment and feel all the physical sensations.

Pause, breathe, and try to slow down: Before you begin with messages to propel you to action, take a few moments to slow down your breathing and try to calm your nerves. Take deep breaths and tone down pressure. Give yourself a moment to regain your control.

Talk to yourself with two voices:

with a stern, confident, and authoritative tone: You must become your own drill sergeant in your own head and use that voice to gives yourself that proverbial kick in the pants; and

with a caring, loving, and positive tone: You must also become your own cheerleader. You need to practice using that voice that gives you positive reinforcement and tells you “you can do it, you can do it, RAH RAH RAH!”. Tell yourself that you’re good enough, strong enough, smart enough, and courageous enough (yes, almost like Stuart Smalley!).

And you have to use these voices at the same time to say to yourself: “Yes, you can. Yes, you must. Yes, you will!"

(This sounds so ‘cheesy’ – just writing this makes me cringe. But let me tell you: it works!)

Gain perspective: try to step outside of the moment and the tunnel vision that fear can cause, and take in the full situation. For example:

Other people have successfully done this, so why not me?

You have probably done something similar or used similar skills in a different situation (like me on that rock – I didn’t fall going up it, why would I fall coming down?), so why not this time?

What’s the worst that can happen? Sometimes we catastrophize the negative consequences and thinking about them carefully can help us see they’re not that bad

List the alternatives (if you have the time) to regain the big picture and think clearly about options, instead of allowing the momentary fear to color your decision-making

Think about impact on others (how does my decision benefit other people that I care about?)

“What would ____________ do?” Sometimes thinking through someone else’s lens helps us see things in a new light. Is there a courageous person (living or dead; real or fictional) that could ‘teach’ you what to do if you invoked them in this

I gave up the internet for Lent and went through a similar process. I'm finding it a little more difficult to fully detach myself from it all but I'm a lot closer to doing so than I was a few months back. It's clear to me now the extent to which using the internet and specifically this place is just a coping mechanism for my own social insecurity and a means of feeling busy without being productive. My nervous system has been rattled by the constant drive towards stimulation to the point where reading became incredibly difficult for me. I'm improving. It's so freeing to remove yourself from the torrent of noise and bullshit. There's no better feeling than one of your terminally online friends attempting to explain some retarded meme to you and you not having a clue what they're talking about or caring.

What's up, motherfuckers. I came here trying to look for some literate motherfuckers to come talk some shit. I know you've got the biggest egos on this website and you love to talk shit about words.

The reason I don't come here is because you faggots just pull your pants down and thwap your dicks on the cover of some book and say "this book! this book!" without ever bothering to summarize the arguments and points you think are relevant for people trying to engage with you who aren't faggots that read books.

You are all some of the most pretentious insufferable faggots because you substantiate your ego on "reading books", and not things like talking mad shit or making arguments. It's like you're all here to jack each other off with books, just crack the spine and start stroking each others dicks with the pages, whispering "you're so intelligent an well read", stroking the dudes cock until he cums. Pretty gay.

In the course of writing ~40,000 words over on /bant/ this week, I received 5 positive comments from people who could read what I write, understand it to some extent, then try to engage with me.


This means a lot, because most of the time on this website it feels like I'm waving a fucking long written argument in front of a dog and expecting some sort of meaningful response.

If you want to come talk some shit with an ornery schizo asshole, come get some on /PBG/ or /STG/ over on /bant/.

Do I read books. I've read a few in the past. I was never into books as kid, but I was an augur and generally just use magic/insight/whatever to deduce things from minimal amounts of information. Due to a long story of corruption and suffering at the hands of demons, I became a very cruel and bitter person. I began writing very scathing and aggressive criticisms, which over the years, due to a lack of audience in other places, have become both longer and more aggressive. I seek people out to criticize them, and generally criticize humanity as a whole.

The point is that my intense rage and anger spurred by the influence of demons which torment me allowed me to see the wisdom of Satan, in that aggressively persecuting people for their folly, ignorance, shortcomings, errors, and misdeeds is a very fulfilling and reasonable pursuit.

Clearly people hate me for this because nobody wants to be criticized, but I rely on the fact that people generally do enjoy listening to other people be criticized. Granted, the fact that I'm limited to written word means that the audience for my diatribes is incredibly small. This is why I'm coming here, trying to find some people willing to read short novel worth of shit posts and come talk some shit.

>sees me talking shit
>calls it "bitching and whining"
>projecting this hard

you sound like the type of faggot who reads books. Literally why reasonable people don't come to this fucking sub.

Look at this guy. This guy understands and respects legitimacy. He knows what quality attributes in a person are. This guy likely has a meaningful amount of physical interactions with other humans because he can understand which individuals have quality personalities and strength of character. Let's analyze what he wrote, in his short, yet meaningful statement.

>Sounds good

Here, he acknowledges that I have made him an offer, he respects me and what i have to offer, so he accepts it. Why does he do this? Why does he respect me rather than condemn me? Because he wants what I have, he wants confidence, strength, power, literacy, and supremacy above men. He sees me and he thinks "Wow, that person is clearly superior to the people on this website, perhaps there is a way I can attain some semblance of that legitimacy and strength"

>you have a forceful attitude.

He notices how starkly my vivid and palpable power bleeding through my text contrasts with the meek little boys typing with their flaccid-penis fingers on this website. The people, like yourself, who add nothing to the conversation but meaningless 128-character twitter phoneposts that cannot even compete with the quality of conversation provided by a bot.

He sees all of you, unwilling to write, uninspired, unwilling to fight, willing to do nothing but spew and markedly trite pathetic personal attacks rather than spend the time to dig as deep into the motherfucker as you can with hard hitting, accurate, and personalized shit talk.

He notices the virility in my words, my passion, my strength, indicating that I have a healthy and robust ego, that I have a considerable amount of will to live, and my written words in the familiar, colloquial, and urban style provide evidence that my education comes not from the books of some dead subhuman faggots who hid in the darkness with their thoughts, but from the reality of the streets, from the blood and thunder of the gods among men, the people who send the loser nerds into the darkness of their room to cry and hate themselves for their failures.

He knows this is who I am, because he has seen people like me before. He has interacted with these people and enjoyed these experiences, respected these people, because he sees self-improvement as a possibility. He wants to grow and attain power.

You condemn me because you doubt you will ever be able to wield the power, the passion, and the fury I do in my work. You offer this little niggle of shit talk and walk away as if your words had any meaning. Why? Because you don't have the will to fight, you don't enjoy fighting because you believe you will lose. You don't see yourself as a powerful man, you see yourself as a weak, defeated, and downtrodden soul coming here to find solace.

I awoke this morning to a loud ruckus. The quaint paleness of the afternoon fog looming just outside the window as I groggily arose from my bed to hear what was happening.

“You knew he was a faggot,” screamed a woman from the apartment room above me. I could surmise that she was both very obese, and very black from the tone of her voice. Sighing, I sauntered to the kitchen where I turned on the stove to prepare some herbal tea for myself, the stomping and hollering from the large black woman continuing from upstairs.

Minutes later, when the high pitched whistle of the pot containing the hot water for my tea signaled, I heard another shriek from upstairs.

“What the fuck is that motherfucking noise,” cried the woman. She must’ve heard me making tea. I sighed to myself again, cursing slavery. Not for the moral, cosmic horror of it, but for the fact that it had now subjected me to deal with the maddening yammering of this bassy-voiced black woman.

The other man, now filled with fear, backed up - and yet doggedly, the first man continued, his rage ever growing. His finger, crooked cruel, began to jam at the chest of the second man, puncturing him like fangs through a wet paper bag. He began to deflate, it seemed, crawling up with his back to the wall, the desperation in his eyes transforming into pain as the words worked their way to his heart.

All empirical data shows that young men are withdrawn from social, academic, and economic engagement at the highest levels they have ever been. Those numbers are only going up. I called you obtuse because you imposed a bunch of arbitrary qualifiers to dispute the claim

The fact that you'll even deny that young men are dropping out of society in Japan is enough to prove that you're either totally ignorant about reality or are obfuscating. Sure the white paper is in japanese, but still serves as evidence that hikikimori is a problem enough for the jap government to get involved. That particular paper is referenced in almost every single article about hikikmori and even in plenty of American articles about the phenomenon occuring in America. You could have easily just googled the term hikikomori and recived plenty of english language articles on the subject even as they compare to the phenomenon in America. I then gave you the english language equivalent term which you again could have looked up, but didn't. Obviously you're refusing to engage. Obviously you're obfuscating. Look here >>18548401
