Yes, it is too mainstream. It has nothing distinguishing it from all the other 43567 metalcore aids bands out there.

Interzone / Re: Some victims are just guilty themselves

I rarely watch TV, and never programs like this, but my attention was brought to this video, and throughout its duration, I couldn't stop thinking of this post. A cautionary tale of what can happen when you identify yourself as a victim.

Seems like the participants would rather play victims and brush off criticism from an obviously wiser source as mere personal insults, rather than confront their personal failings. Can't help people who have no desire to help themselves.

What, so you think that, before liberalism, when people had an 'organic' or 'homogeneous' society... everything was hunky dory? Do you think that because everyone merely shared a religion and history, that there would have been no political differences: that groups were not persecuted, that class structures didn't exist, and that people would not have wanted to separate politically if they had the freedom, wealth and education? Have you ever read a history book?
Do I think the past was an idyllic perfect utopia? No.
Was it better than what we have now? Yes.

I prefer a society that understands that history, race, and religion are all intertwined. That cultivates a heroic spirit and doesn't feel guilty for being militarily strong. That understands that not all people are equal and that men and women aren't the same.  What do you prefer?

Also, I wonder why you think class structures and persecuting unwanted groups are a negative. Seems like you want to have an egalitarian non-judgmental society...

I just don't see this "implosion" when I walk down the street or visit the city.
Reading your posts, I'm not surprised.

there's some samples of the new album. They're not long but it sounds promising. You got to love cheesy ambient music, which I do. :)

Seems to be a mixture of the original '90s spirit with the '00s aids. Probably will be better than his last 4 albums, but worse than the others.


Also, that bass is going to get irritating.

Not metal, but better than anything he's put out since the '90s.

My question was unnecessarily vague. A better way of asking it: is there a way of noticing all the colors and noises of the city without letting it effect oneself?

Right now, if I go into a city I just try to block it all out or it starts to bother me.

When you're surrounded by walls it's hard to have awareness past those walls. And I don't mean metaphorical walls, I mean actual ones. In the forest there's tons of emptiness and places for the senses to go.
Modern architecture is especially limiting. Buildings like this try to expand the senses, at least as much is possible in a human construct. Whereas, something like this is designed to press down on perception.

Would we go crazy? No. I haven't. But some could, quite easily.
The 360 degrees you mention identifies you as one who has awareness. Most have senses that stop a foot in front and at the side limits of their peripheral vision.
That 360 awareness is actually limitless, once you accept that it is.
My ears are dangerously sensitive, when I'm around cities.
Any ideas on how to bring the mentality of the forest into the city? Or are they too opposed?

it is meeting people's needs to a degree unprecedented by any other cultural-economic system in human history.

If by "needs" you mean only food, water, and shelter, then yes those are easier to get than ever, but beyond that...?

Liberalism has no culture, it simply mashes pre-existing cultures together into a grey paste. Ever since liberalism has become the establishment, society has been on a spiral of implosion. There is far, far less social consensus now than there ever has been. That list of values you posted is heartily disagreed with by a large number of people in this country. Where do they go to avoid them?

While I'm walking in the forest, I've noticed that my senses seem to expand. I have a 360 degree sphere of perception rather than noticing only what's in front of me. (Hearing especially. it's amazing how much sound I block out during the day.)

Does technology induce stupor? If we paid full attention to our surroundings would we go crazy?

They were victims of multiculturalism, as much as we all are. We don't bomb random people though.

istaros, crow:

Thank you both for what you wrote in this thread. While intellectually to me, it seemed foolhardy to deny women the right to vote (women and men together build the family, why should they not build civilization together?), you have given me things to contemplate.

By which i mean, pointing out the intellect has limits that cannot be covered by experience. And I have no experience of another perspective. So where does my opinion arise?

I've been thrown into a state of agnosticism about my own belief. Perhaps in civilization-building, it's man's role to run politics? Even our society did that only a couple hundred years ago, and by most accounts it was a more pleasant time.

Or perhaps you're both backwards misogynistic closet-Muslims, which is what a liberal would say. Although to me, that seems unlikely.

It's all pop music, but some of the pop music isn't even pop music. That either makes no sense, or all the sense you need.

Why do you listen to metal?
