Shitpost

Somehow, all this effortposting made me forget that consistency is important too. So I think the new plan is to do those giant effortposts every few days and knock out half-hour posts like this on the days in between.


I’ma psychologize about the generations in sweeping terms.

Greats: Traumatic psychosis. Conservatism, flat affect, self-medication, outbursts. “I don’t understand what’s happened and I don’t want to talk about it neither.”

Baby Boomers: Mania, delusions of grandeur. The inability to grok opportunity cost. “I can have it all.”

Gen Xers: Despair. Pathological risk-aversion and social atomization. “What’s the point?”

Millenials: Infantilism. Authority worship, high time preference, and lack of agency. “Tell me what to do!”

Generation Z: Philosophical zombies, psychopathy. The schools and culture have reached peak effectiveness and eliminated what we’d recognize as human souls. “Om nom nom.”

    Strauss and Howes repeating cycle has long appealed to me. Although I have no faith that aging, self absorbed baby boomers will ever mature into elder statesmen. They seem far too deluded for that.

    This post makes me want to dig underground and keep going.

    I would say there are more green shoots than you give credit for. Cyborganising on the blockchain, the alt-right and neat modular engineering. What’s left of us might become like neander-cyborgs, fusing nature with technology on a quantum-crypto-distributed-neural network. But maybe this is dual back fetishising again. It’s possible. Or we could just die like dogs. meh.

    Some brain food-
    Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were raised by parents of a different religion than christianity?

      Never seriously, I don’t know if it’s a meaningful question outside of an Armenianism/Calvinism discussion. I’m an Armenian, but even so I believe the spirit is very weak and has very little effect on life outcomes.

      So without that distinction we’re just talking nature/nurture. How much of belief is genetics? In my view, quite a lot. Perhaps 80%.

      The same thing that would’ve happened if I were raised by Christians – reject it at age 9 because sci fi + logic, investigate all faiths, select Christianity.

      Probably earlier than 9, because my father’s oral apologetics for any other belief system would’ve been far less compelling, thus requiring less time to think my way outside of them.

    Worsts: Complete unthinking obedience to authority and acceptance of propaganda.

    Boomers: Narcissism: Unthinking totally superficial and childish rebellion that played right into the hands of the same social engineers who manipulated the Worsts.

    This is a quality shitpost! Adressing why the fuck white people change styles completely every decade since 1900(?) is a worthy topic, one you adressed albeit unknowingly, like a pro.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Indeed, I still haven’t quite figured out where or how I did so! Very artistic of me, I should have thought of it during one of my afternoon swooning sessions.

    Since you’re shitposting I’m a go off topic. Insight heroin for your AH! http://www.ribbonfarm.com/2016/06/16/meta-skills-macro-laws-and-the-power-of-constraints/

    That was not always the case. For most of recorded history it seems style stays the same for at least a century or two with archaic times having literally no change for millennia. The quickened pace of this degeneration is most likely some sort of ‘novelty’ seeking from high rates of neoteny.
