Is this along the same lines as their Subklinik project?

We should make a conscious to avoid false dichotomies.

It's not even the mark of an idiot.
It's the mark of someone who learned 'debating' in high-school, and doesn't yet know the world is not like high-school.
It's also depressingly 'normal', especially on internet forums.

It's autism. These are people that need exterminating perhaps even more than the sub-120s, because the intelligence they have is devoted entirely to their own egotistic compulsions.

Video games are probably the most popular outlet of Romanticism in our culture today (the Elder Scrolls series being a good example of this). It's a double-edged sword though, because they're also one of the most popular outlets for escapism.

Why does it always seem like there is a fine line between Romanticism and escapism?

Dark Souls is the most black metal game ever made.

This is basically what thrash and early black metal are.

Heaps of bodies can be managed, especially since they will be mostly localized in cities.

This is the thing that makes the Holocaust 2.0 at least somewhat viable. Cities are basically concentration camps for scum of all social strata.

1) Since when did happiness suppose value?
2) Looks like a sub-standard South Asian culture, like many others. Good on them for resisting the disease of modernity, but in comparison to actual civilization (renaissance Italy or Persia, for example) this 'shangra-la' is nothing but a speck of dust.

A culture's value is not determined by its material accomplishments, although these may reveal something of that culture.  Of what value is a culture if it doesn't benefit individuals?

Culture is merely a collection of material accomplishments; architecture, goods, fashion, literature, art etc.. All of these benefit individuals by making them cultured.

What about values and attitudes?

Crimson Massacre - The Luster of Pandemonium

Fucking awful senseless music with metalcore-ish vocals to boot.

It took me about a dozen attempts before I was able to penetrate it, but eventually I came to see as being something like Demilich's hyperactive little brother. As with Demilich, I never would've come to appreciate it if I went solely on initial impressions.

Looks good, but there should be a section for My Little Pony fanart.

What the hell are you talking about? Maybe in Europe, but in America, 80% of all people are religious. That means around 80% of all Americans have at the very least been exposed to self-denying philosophy, however crude or watered down it may be.


Thanks for the article. I think "egonovism" is my new favorite word.

In what ways are American-brand evangelical Christianity and, for example, Buddhism comparable in their attitudes towards the ego?
Theoretically, if they were deriving their teachings from the Bible, then their attitudes would be similar.

"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." - Phillipians2:3-5

Unfortunately, I think many churches lose themselves to Christianity's greatest vice: Pride.

Point being that American McChristianity is a far cry from what the ideology was conceived to be.

Meister Eckhart was a good Christian, I think.
