How long can you endure the same thing over and over till you crack?
I have not read any of us who are currently working on material for this project propose "the same thing" for everyone. Different cultures create a diverse system. Craig Smith says it well
"It really depends on how far the subculture goes in isolating its members from general society by behavior. Most Gothic people or headbangers or punkers would fit in to a society which was not constantly looking for deviants to single out as "abnormal" and "evil," because the real reasons Goths and company rebel against our current society is that it has broken values and presents them with a bleak future."
"Some youth subcultures are clearly destructive and would be isolated from general society. For example, gutterpunks come from the tradition that arose when emo ("emotional" punk music, very leftist) merged with crustcore (extremist anti-social anarchism) and we got a culture of mostly affluent children who instead prefer to become homeless, encrusted in filth and begging on the street for spare change to spend on drugs, their extensive costumes, and the pedigree dogs many of them choose to own. In any traditional society, of course, this is something akin to mental dysfunction, as it is extreme protest without any positive action taken, so our goal would be to give these people a reasonable area in the metropolitan area."
Tha_ghey_gut-r-phunc_G-U-wish_knee_kroze_4_G-zuz "can be spread" (among their peers, in-district) to "allow for fullfillment," so to speak, while the rest of us get on with civilization. "The same thing over and over again" will never exist; do not fear a grey world! Simply overcome it, and it will never arrive; celebrate and preserve the integrity of your culture, and, if you cannot, celebrate the integrity of suicide. Attempt to prevent others from rising to the same occasion, and you are already a suicide case (six billion humans can't be wrong

back to the issue at hand:
Wilhelm: I will e-mail you again when I have material. Drafts are being extensively edited. It strikes me as superfluous to e-mail you without any attached content; that said, I recently finished relating a passage from Schopenhauer's Early Fourfold Root
(the first class of objects and the body as immediate object) to the commonly held subject-object distinction, here manifested in the interaction between human and technological medium (specifically, internet). It may not be of use but give word and I will send it.
All other work remains in progress.
Other contributors: I know your writing from these message boards and find value in it. If you are interested in exchanging drafts for mutual review and editing, e-mail me or send a private message. It may take some time for me to respond, but I will.
