I was 25
Really? I had you pegged for being around 18. I reckon I'm probably wrong about people's ages around here quite frequently, though.
Anyway, who the fuck are you arguing with at this moment? All I can see is you setting up craploads of straw men. What you call "arbitrary values" might be incredibly well worked out values.
This isn't an argument, it is a discussion. My posts are directly related to numerous ones here. Cargest, please.
I'm 28. I've been posting on anus since the days of autistic garbagemen. And really, that shit was more clearer to me when I was even younger than 25. Oh it all made sense then. Too much time in college, being married, raising children, getting divorced, interacting with people in the work force etc since has made me realize the heavy metal neo nazi pseudo-conservative outlook is half-formed. I have too much perspective to redress failed systems in corpse paint and act like it is some revelation. I avoid the "you're just a kid oh I thought you were 18 no offense dude" ad hominem as much as I can, so it was disappointing to see you resort to that here. However, since you went there, I will say I find much of the perspective voice in the recent discussions to be too void of sufficient life experience to have lasting meaning.
Those values were incredibly well worked out for a period of time that no longer exists. They are no longer applicable now as they once were. If they were ideal, reason says they would have endured. We'll have to formulate new strategies for the brave new world we live in. We cannot go back. We should look back, and take what we need, and evolve forward. Devolution isn't the answer, evolution is the answer. How is this wrong?
It is fun to type about the good ol' days we were never there for and have no legitimate perspective on, and just pretend the world is %100 different, but there comes a point where too much romanticism is absurd.
Someone tell me, quite literally, how and exactly what we are going to go back to? How can that exist with the changes in the West?
