To be fair a lot of the important shit is behind paywalls and/or lots of red tape. Wikipedia and CliffNotes just isn't enough and torrenting is not an option for a surprising amount of people.

It reminds me of how people in America are overweight and suffering from malnutrition and dehydration.

I second OP's opinion because I suffer from a terrible disease and I might be part of the last generation to carry it. Medical technology is growing faster than ever, and more countries than ever are rich enough to enter the medical field. A cure is just around the corner, I just know it.

I've been watching videos about anarchy and since I've like causes that bring the power to the masses rather than the elites I want to now read about anarchist ideas. I might have to tell my mom that I'm becoming an anarchist, mostly for laughs.

"Hey mom, I'm an anarchist, I got a cute anarchist gf and we are going to protest private institutions and the government. Also, she's pregnant so you're going to have anarchist grandbabies. Hooray!!"

Doesn't seem to me like Anarchy brings power to the masses. Maybe I misunderstand it, but I would think Anarchy empowers the people who can afford expensive security and military. Like capitalism, except you can't actually sue big corporations for ruining your life.

Funny concept though, I'm sure your mother would be thrilled.

There's a BIG difference between left and right wing anarchism. "We are going to protest private institutions" makes me think that >>4695 was probably talking about the left version. This is a good introduction if you're interested: https://theanarchistlibrary.org/library/the-anarchist-faq-editorial-collective-an-anarchist-faq

 No.4707

>>4703
Maybe "power" is the wrong word, since in more leftist circles (and yea, >>4706, I'm referring to left wing anarchism thanks for the resource it's really cool) power refers to the ability to limit and give options to others. So a good example would be the difference between Apple's ecosystem vs Linux and Android, Apple has the power to cut out ports on it's laptops, prevent DIY upgrades on it's desktops and build it's phones and tablets to require special headphones and repair techs to replace the battery. Compared to Linux and Android which can be used to revive old devices and a lot of older computers can still be upgraded/repaired by the user.

It's very safe to say that tech, as just one example, would be extremely different if all of the big players were anarchist co-operatives rather than capitalist companies. The latter has a lot of power over average person.

Sorry if I come off as rambling, I'm just learning about all of this too.

>>4704
I respectfully disagree. The law isn't a concern for abusive people and entities. The laws are too often made by the powerful in the first place and often ignored by them too.

The HBO rome series is absolutely amazing and you should watch it. At one point Ceasers wife is travelling through Rome on a litter and it turns out that overnight they've painted pictures of his mistress blowing him all over the city, then he has to break up with her because his wife is pissed.

I have mixed feelings about that, technology and health care is cool and all that but we are becoming more and more controlled.

Every age has good and bad, the problem we have now is that the good in the world is really good and the bad is really bad. Medical technology is amazing, but nuclear warfare is terrifying. So you have to take the good with the bad, the only other option is suicide. Unless you're a time traveler, in which case, you can take whatever good with whatever bad you want.

The full eradication of the entire world is impossible with pre-agrarian technology. If you really find The Bomb terrifying the inevitable end conclusion you will come to is that technology has been misused by powerful people for the entire history of humanity.

This sushi expressed my thoughts.

We're progressing towards a technology facilitated dystopia.

Politics and hatred everywhere. Political correctness turned into censorship.

I'm quite a loner, for several reasons, but this shit just discourages from socializing and makes me want enjoy life in solitude more, even it's just watching animu, mountain biking, travelling and shit

 No.4999

>>4996
I feel like that too, but I don't know how to stay comfortably independent in solitude. Hard to find a source of income I think. Might be possible through certain crafts, but that also requires some investment, which might not be possible for NEET and low income loners.

>low income


Hmm. I worked at factory earning almost minimum wage, while studying, for 4 years, before moving on to a proper office job.

Living w/ my parents and adopting a very strict financial regime helped me out a lot. I managed to build a decent PC, buy a car, go to anicons, travelled to Japan, etc…

I took pleasure not from instant gratification in buying that new figure, but in the commitment to, and accomplishment of, the goal I set that was to buy said figure.

Save, plan ahead, don't contract debt. I think it's doable.

Even for NEETs. If you're very emotionally unstable, try setting smaller, easier objectives, and work your way up. The hardest part is getting a job. From the shit I've seen, anyone can get a job, no matter how crappy it is. It pays and that's, not all, but, most of what matters. This mindset helped me.
