“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.” -Arthur Schopenhauer

"Great men are like eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude" -Arthur Schopenhauer

Man, I must be pretty great with the lofty solitude I've built my nest upon. But, what does this Schopenhauer know anyway?

He's short, he's bald, he's like the George Costanza of 19th century philosophy.... He was certainly a powerhouse. Nietzsche's "great father" until Nietzsche kind of separated himself from Schopie when Nietzsche started reaching new power levels and coming into his own with works like Human, All Too Human and The Gayest Science. Of course, there was that other book that arrived Thus Sprakken zie Zarathustra which perhaps made people gayer than The Gayest Science.

I do a lot of cool stuff in solitude but it's not like what Art is talking about. It's not about being some nerd and spending screen time on bullshit (like this). Writing something meaningful would get in the club. Reading something meaningful would as well. I think I am drawing dead at doing something meaningful in Math or Physics at this point. Sadly, I was probably drawing dead my whole life. But, damn, Schopie for being a notorious pessimisstic philosopher really pumps me up. Of cousre, he is biased here. It's Art's interpretation of the situation but I can get down with this. Tonight, I feel great in solitude. I'm soaring with the Eagles. It's the only time I'm free.

"A high degree of intellect tends to make a man unsocial" - Arthur Schopenhauer

So, lofty solitude makes me great and free and because I am great and free I am unsocial. Checks out. I have not actually done anything great though so there is a different equation for me somewhere. What if I spent all my time jerking off on MILF porn or having sex on Baldur's Gate 3? At least I've read some good books. That's all that can be said for this time away from work on Oct. 13? At least I've read some good books.... That is what I want my life to be? Future gravestone: "He gave his dog walks" RIP.

That troll meme isn't really that relatable anymore. I went from hanging out with leftist memes and now I hang out with my therapist who is a right winger, my guitar coach who is a right winger, my best friend here is a right winger. Twitter's Overton Window has veered way right and I listen to the Redscare podcast and read BronzeAgeMindset all in an attempt to be a free thinker. I guess I would be an outcast leftist at this point only to avoid being a shitlib but weirdly enough I could morph into some new-new Right placement if Peter Thiel psyop attempts keep working. There is no longer any David Greaber to knock that little bitch down in debate and twinkly laugh about it although I guess I could fire that video up and watch it daily or just avoid The Peter Thiel pysop attempts but I think I am the perfect psyop target for him.

It's a pretty stupid meme tbh. Like a quarter of Americans are basically having their mind made up for them by the tech industry to the point that it's a mental illness. They can't even talk to their kids about politics. Not just algorithms but capitalist media. Its a system designed to create mentally ill people.

Doesn't apply to the many victims of this system that arnt mentally ill either and were completed fucked from the get go.

I cannot respect mentally weak people that come up with rationalizations for whatever political system they live under.

Shout out to all the dumb cunts in that profession that used to think communism and feminism and gayness were mental disorders btw.

Stroggoz, I said I was fighting the psyops man. They are highly intricate and effective stuff but I am fighting them successfully. As long as I have twinkly David Greaber on my side I am ok.

I was not sure what Google said about me so I took an online test and it said I was an outcast left. I've probably been an outcast left even when I was hanging with communists, trans, non-binary, and DSA people.

I am relatively lost in life at the moment. I am more vulnerable to psyop attacks, cult leaders, and whatever it else there is. I like reading both sides. I like being a free thinker but I have to stay on my toes. The Right is trying to get me.

Here is the psyop. "Dirtbag leftist Bohemians lying around" = Peter Thiel funded propaghanda or something similar. Steve Bannon, BronzeAgePervert, something is up here.

No one can completely think for themselves in our society. Anyone that's ever questioned anything will realize how much they've had their thoughts made up for them their whole life. All we can do is try our best.

I didn't even give a shit about politics until I was 20 because the TINA mantra was hard-coded into my brain by the bootlickers. I would say I was as mentally enslaved as your average 18th century woman.

I really don't know what you mean by psyops but the tern originates from CIA psychological warfare. The CIA has miniscule influence on the way people think compared to most institutions and their primitive methods of thought control are mostly directed at foreigners from what I can tell. Your average tech company is more influential than the CIA.

A Short Story

One day I was bored and on Twitter (post-Elon) and a tweet popped up about a debate about the sexual revolution. I was vaguely interested and watched it. Let me first say that Twitter / X (post-Elon) I've seen it smash from heavily liberal (Shitlib / Libtard) and now it's been smashed to the Right. Anyway, 1 of the 4 debators I did not know her name was Anna Kachiyan and I decided that I liked her and would find out more. Found a book list, found some interviews on YouTube. All good. Found her bread and butter Redscare podcast. It is branded as a dirtball leftist kind of thing, "2 bohemians lying about with a podcast." I listen to some. They are funny, I like a lot of their takes on Culture. Then I see they interviewed Steve Bannon. Then I find this interview by Bronzed Aged Pervert who is talking about Nietzsche and all these things. Apparently his book is great (Bronze Age Mindset). I read the book. He writes in a way to make things exciting and inspiring even though he is talking about conqiustadors murdering people and all sorts of things. He calls neo-liberals bug men and vermin. Hillary Clintong. The book makes me feel a certain way. I follow this BronzedAgedPervert on Twitter which then probably jacks up the algorithms even more. I see him posting one day about military ruling class, undemocratic, unequal, eugenics projects and I am at least thinking about what is going on here. I don't want to lose the feeling of the book. I listen to a Redscare podcast reviewing the book. They talk about how much they loved it and people who don't are "bugmen lol." Anna had read it 3 times at the time.

What's next?

The exageration here which may not even by an exageration is that Peter Thiel or someone similar funds all of these people. Any broke Brooklyn intellectual with aspirations to move up to the Lower East Side is the target. I am then a target for these people to move me right. Classic negotiation you start with something extreme like Military ruling class, eugenics project and then you can get me to move on we are letting too many immigrants in, we need to stop that, and deport some. Then, they say, ok, we let 0 in, and deport 2 million plus communists, liberals, etc. Rembember, that if it suits the the Republican all liberals are communists. Then, I realize I don't really know what I am doing but that seems unreasonable and we go from there.

BronzedAgedPervert is nothing more than an Overton Window mover but I think it's working.

The antidote is watching a debate called "What Happened to the Future?" between a snarling, sweaty Peter Thiel vs a twinkly, alive David Graeber. I'm sure there are other antidotes. Millions of antidotes. There is also just not becoming a fascist. Certainly not because I recognize a manifesto that contains power.

The online left esp those on twitch are mostly lowlifes from what I can tell. No interest in truth or putting work in.

There are a few decent channels like mexie or unlearning economics. I can't stand breadtube.

And ofc there's chomsky getting interviewed 30 hours a day at his computer. And Richard wolf is online.

The lowlifes are the twitch streamers like vaush and destiny and whoever else pretends to know what they are talking about.

The Redscare podcast is advertised as Left wing but is subversively not that. They joke about socialism being over and would say something like socialism is gay (they are anti-woke). Someone is funding this movement of Brooklyn artists and intellectuals to move to the Lower East End (by Chinatown) and create non-Leftist art and discourse. Dasha is an actress / film director and Anna has the art history and architecture degrees. They mostly talk about Culture. They are not on Twitch.

BronzeAgedPervert has a Math degree from MIT, a Philosophy masters from Columbia, and a PhD in Political Science from Yale. He shit posts as a strategy but is far, far right.

I always wondered Vausch's deal. He alwawys seemed so confident in his convictions. Mostly debated idiots that always ended up being a shit show. I don't watch YouTube much anymore. I have to have a reason to go there versus going there to browse. I saw Mexie had some new videos up but may or may not watch. Sometimes it feels "safe" only watching Chomsky or Richard Wolff stuff.

I just wonder how long of consuming this subversively Right stuff before I become Right wing myself? Or, if I switched to entirely Right wing media how long would it take?

There was a documentary that I did not watch but it was about how this one lady's dad went from Kennedy Democrat to far Right curmedgeon. Basically, he listened to Rush Limbaugh anytime he was in the car and watched Fox News most of the time he was at home.

I don't think I would switch over so easily but I don't think it's impossible.

I like them both but the one on the right is how I found them. I wish she was trying to get me.
