Metal / Re: New "Old School Death Metal"

The new Vallenfyre has had me hooked for the past few weeks, but repeated listening has begun to reveal its flaws. Its feels poppy and simple. The standout tracks like Desecration and Cathedrals of Dread prop up what is otherwise an album of filler.

The article I was thinking of wasn't a blogpost. It was in the corrupt files or something.

Anyways, I think the people who create and spread conspiratorial kinds of ideas are looking for a catch-all solution (besides the ego boost that goes along with being privy to 'the truth'). They want an easy answer to the question "Why is the world so fucked up?" so they make up stories about an evil league of supervillains bent on world domination.  Those who preach about the Illuminati and their schemes are really just immature, both intellectually and emotionally; intellectually in that they they believe the incoherent ramblings of washed-up basement dwellers without devoting any time to research it for themselves or think critically, and emotionally in that they blame their (society's) failures on some external source because they're unwilling to take responsibility for their own actions.

Probably the dumbest, most asinine form of activism arises from this phenomenon.

I remember the old CORRUPT.ORG had a great article on conspiracy theories that admitted the mega-rich do exploit loopholes in the system to sway politics one way or the other, but emphasized the the fact that the problem is the people, not the elites -- does anyone have it saved?

I think he has good ideas. One on one conversation is the best way you can change minds. In the last few weeks I have "converted" numerous people into being aware of the Zionist plot as it relates to cultural decay. Ron Paul websites are where it's at nillas.
Why is it the Zionist's fault our culture is in decline?

Crow, your house... do you live in faerytale land?

Neat art everybody. Hails to those who create.

No.

As I and other users have said, something essential would be missing from society after the fact: reverence for life, moral tradition, a soul... such are the things a culture needs to blossom.

-Nuclear power and synfuels like alcohol, hydrogen, and hydrazine can avert the impending fossil fuel crisis.

None of those combined can be collected, refined and delivered to anywhere near the requirements currently met by fossil fuels. We're talking closer to 10% range and that is optimally, not anywhere close to three quarters or four fifths. Who in this broke, fuel-starved world is going to bankroll your multi-trillion dollar total infrastructure conversion anyway? The principle cause of any fossil fuels crisis is too many people in the world tapping in. Unlike with the fuel shortage problem, the population problem we do have the means to solve.
The manufacturing needs of the US when WWII started must have seemed insurmountable at first, but they were nonetheless accomplished, because they were necessary.

How? Corporations do what their stockholders tell them to do. Stockholders are ordinary people. They also vote.

Either have an enlightened despot and/or start educating kids early on that the world is in a precipitous state and it needs heroes to help it survive.


Quote
And they will comply with this education why?

Else they be socially ostracized and/or fined.

Quote
How?

Obviously it can't occur through government mandate or people would be whiny. It would require community leaders with extroardinary persuasiveness, selflessness, and ken.

Quote
I can agree with this. How do you select "smart" people?

I am wary of big brother type programs. It would have to occur at the micro level, where communities praise those who are intelligent and fertile.

Do you want more nuclear power plants out there, given our somewhat bad record of late?

Fukushima was based on outdated reactor designs. Had they been 3rd gen boiling water reacotrs, meltdown would have not occurred, as the only thing they need for their back up coolant systems to work is gravity. Nuclear power is too good to pass up, there is enough fuel out there (counting Thorium) to last for 3,000+ years. By the time they're up, we could be on other planets, thus expanding our resource pool.

Quote
How would it "ruin humanity"?

By violating our intrinsic morality: No killing unless in self defense. All societies have laws like this. Like I said before, mass murder would make a society of sociopaths.

Btw conservationist, what would you do if your son was under 120?

I don't think that the  the killing off of billions will  take down civilisation. Genghis Khan bled off china yet their civilisation didn't collapse. Humanity has suffer a lot through history but I have always thrive to this day. This will not change.
The state of Russia and China today are testaments to his legacy: 3rd world countries mimicking superpower status, barely held together at the seams by a tyrannical oligarchy.

Quote
Let's say we scrap that solution: what would you do to change the curring way the world is heading?
It's not to late for disaster to be averted.

-Make world governments immune to the machinations of the corporations vying for supremacy.
-Start hardline education programs to help people and businesses transition into eco-friendly, conservative lifestyles. Recycle everything, make your products last a lifetime, no SUVs etc. ("liberty" is going to be the biggest enemy in this phase.)
-Restructure communities to make them centralized, self-sustaining units not dependent on imports
-Concurrent with this education is a massive paradigm shift in industry that will shy away from disposable products as the meat n potatoes of our economy. Industries will be strictly regulated and must obey environmental guidelines or else face complete shutdown. Lobbying must become a thing of the past.
-Set strict guidelines as to which areas are for development and which are going to be left as  untouched nature; over 50% of all land needs to designated as not for development.
-Incentivize smart people to have more babies.
-Stop feeding 3rd world countries and start leading them. Parts of their populations can go back to preindustrial lifestyles, other part will convert to modern-modern living thus stabilizing population growth.
-Nuclear power and synfuels like alcohol, hydrogen, and hydrazine can avert the impending fossil fuel crisis.
etc...

I don't have all the answers, but what I do know is this: Mass murder would ruin humanity. All other options must be explored before reverting to Eugenics.


Forcing the defectives into woodchippers would deliver the same end results, plus nice mulch for reforestation, so what difference does it make really?
Your insouciance makes me think your genocide policy is just a giant troll to get people to think of better ways to fix the world.

Conservationist, I find it sad that a willful, intelligent person like yourself is devoted to a lost cause like mass murder. Not only is your fantasy completely bunk from from a practical standpoint -- How one is supposed to go about killing off five billion people without taking down civilization along with it is beyond me -- but also from a moral standpoint. Such an action would taint humanity's collective conscience, if you will. From that point on in this hypothetical human history, people would be desensitized to that act of killing and murder. It would be seen as a normal way to solve your problems ("Hm, I don't like this person, I think I'll just kill him"). It'd be a society of sociopaths. What a hideous world that would be.

I don't want to kill you. And even if I did, convincing a civilized modern society killing you is impossible. Humanity is better than this. White people are better than this. When we were not, we committed crimes against other groups that has allowed a specific opportunist to exploit those crimes and the natural and healthy collective guilt against us. Advocating a return to those crimes is not evolving. It is doing exactly what the opportunist wants.
You're fuckin' right, it'd be like Zionism  but for stupid people. Is that what ANUS wants?

Personally speaking, I rocked a 124 based on my last test, but 111 is a great IQ. You're just fine. Above average. An overman. I got yo back nigga.
Thanks brother.

All the genocide talk here is from nerds behind a computer who listen to classical music and think doing so is equivalent to a Eucharist ritual where they consume the body of Beethoven and thus can lay claim to his absolute genius.
Seriously, it's like everyone on here has a massive inferiority complex and just want to circlejerk eachother about how much better they are than the "proles".



Crow, I know whatever I build will never be remembered, but nonetheless I still have to try. Not just for my own sake, but for the sake of everyone else.

And yeah... Genocide is the easy way out. AKA the fag's way out ;)

I've never taken an IQ test, but I found a site that matches your SAT score with different IQ scores and it came up that I have an IQ score of 111. My question here is, why do you want me to die?

I'm not dumb. My teachers always have said I'm a good writer. I'm just really bad with math and shit. I love reading, but I must admit, I probably play videogames more than I read.

I love life, and I know I have something to give back to the world, no matter what you guys say. I walk dogs for a local animal shelter and am an all-around a nice guy.

Not that I'm concerned I'll be the victim of your idiocide. Good luck convincing all those +120s to kill their friends and family.

I come here for smart discussion with fellow metalheads, but honestly, what the fuck is up with this genocide shit?

You believe only because your temporal lobes make you. Force them off. Have some fortitude.
Wolfgang, you're backwards

You're brain doesn't really make you do anything, save for breathing etc. You make your brain do things.

You're attacking the notion of God as though it's a self-defense mechanism against meaninglessness. Have you ever thought that your own mind may be rejecting the notion of the Divine as a self-defense mechanism against meaning?

Have some fortitude and challenge your own paradigm.

Atheism represents a lack of imagination.

Quantum physics seems to be rewriting all the rules, and could possibly be an avenue for expanding our conceptions of what is possible, or in other words, help us dream bigger.

If one thing can be in two different places at the same time, whose to say a miracle is impossible?
