Has anyone else here watched The Boondocks? What do you think about it? In retrospect, it's bizarre that is was ever made at all. A black American makes a satirical comic strip about race relations, black pop culture and politics, and that of all things gets an adult swim adaptation, styled after anime.

It's the kind thing that could have only been made at that specific point in time where American networks were trying to replicate anime, before they gave up on that.

The show pushes boundaries(at least the boundaries of that time) and makes quite of bit of fun of things you wouldn't typically be able to mock black people for. It's done under an interesting lens though.
All of the stereotypical "bad behavior" or tastes associated with black people, are attributed to "ignorance". Ignorance is The Boondocks' favorite word. Ignorance of what exactly, is never specified. What magical piece of knowledge black people are missing is never explained to the audience.

White people on the show are portrayed as caricatures. Either they're blissfully ignorant and unaware of how society works, greedy and morally bankrupt, or they imitate black people. The main antagonist of the show is actually not a white person, but an extreme uncle tom.

It's hard to piece together what exactly the show's overall message is. It's kind of exotic, as you can tell from it's lukewarm, bitter representation of Obama. Not exactly standard liberal propaganda. People have said the creator is a "black nationalist". I don't know anything about that ideology. The show does have some element of self-aggrandizing though. Huey, the main character, is a genius 10 year old who knows kung-fu. He's the show's main mouth piece of reason and has been called a writer self-insert.

So those are my thoughts.

I'm attracted to attractive girls. Legality or "morality" doesn't play a role in my sexual attraction. My brain does not care if they're 14 or 34. That's not a political stance or a choice, I'm only describing how my mind works.

What is a political stance, is that I think labels like "pedophile" or "hebephile" are mostly arbitrary and artificial. They're ways for society to patholigize biological responses they've deemed unacceptable, but can't actually make illegal.

This all seems obvious to me, but it's a verboten stance pretty much everywhere. There's always people who will virtue signal to protect or elevate themselves. Nevermind a lot of loli art, at least in the past, used real world references(while those were still legal up until recently), and loli art references each other. You're evil if you don't also get on the high horse.

I know this makes a lot of people uncomfortable, but I had to get it off my chest.

I think it's the most normal thing ever to be attracted to attractive girls, but even girls who are 18 seem immature so it's hard to feel attracted on any level but physically. I personally hate the loli shit and think its cancer with how many anime think its a great idea to incorporate it. It's why I won't watch dragon maid and I do realise it's not the same as real kids but also a lot of the shit is intentionally wrote like some pedofile predator fantasy story. Keep in mind I will only hear about the memes which bring out the worst series like boku no pico or euphoria something.

Ironically I did watch all of fate prisma illya because I like the main fate universe, probably the only person in existence to not watch it for the perverted stuff and enjoy the fights a lot. It was actually the first series in about 4-5 years I genuinely enjoyed after being majorly depressed from chronic pain.

Does a religion need any kind of supernatural element? Let's say I invited a religion called Soupism. The only rule is that you have to eat soup at least once a day. To be a Soupist, the only two conditions are that you follow this rule and consider yourself a Soupist. That's it. The symbol of Soupism is a cursive s. Does Soupism count as a religion?

I think cults are a subset of religion, or maybe the larval stage of religion. Lots of popular religions started with a cult of personality.

If it has no supernatural elements then it's a philosophy not a region.

If this board is to be "like /pol/", we absolutely must have a thread about Jews.

What do you think about Jews? Is the extent of their wealth and control over media troubling to you? Do you think they're actually behind the promotion of things like miscegenation and a poor education system (ie: Common Core) to keep the population at large easier to control, or do you think that's just a Stormfront conspiracy theory?

>Is the extent of their wealth and control over media troubling to you?
sure. what does it demonstrate? that wealth under our current system is generational. so if Jewish ancestors being wealthy, leads to Jews being wealthy today - what does this suggest about a nation that formerly favored white interests above all others? why, plainly it would demonstrate that whites would inherit a similar boon to their wealth that would give them an unfair advantage over others. it would also indicate that crackdowns on the efforts of minorities during reconstruction (who got further in their efforts then than they have to this day, by the way: yes, whites pushed blacks further back in progress deliberately after the civil war and they STILL have not fully recovered), for example, also has continuing effects on the lineage of generational wealth. that is to say, the relative wealth of Jewish people is an absolute proof of the real, material existence of this society being racist, and white supremacist.
>Do you think they're actually behind the promotion of things like miscegenation and a poor education system (ie: Common Core)
Insofar as any corporate interest would be - but then, in that we are referring more to corporations than to the Jewish people. For example, I find it monumentally hard to imagine what interest a homeless Jewish man would have in these things, though your ilk don't seem to believe such exist, they do. So in reality it's merely the self-interest of a system constructed to serve production for exchange - Common Core gives a singular standard for Employers to hire from, whereas homeschooling across the board would lead to a colossal outcry as CEOs piss and shit themselves screaming that they can't trust the qualifications of parents. and so the Corporate Arm of the Law stretches forth to create an early-life job training program, funded by taxes that impact lower classes more than them (after all, they have only to invest all their savings into their firm, and move their firm to the Bahamas, and not only would this not be tax evasion, it'd be called "job creation".) as for "promotio

Food production is a big issue for the world. Food shortages, booming population, deteriorating croplands are usually the reason for the collapse of many earlier civilizations... And now the whole world is feeling the same kind of pressure. It's hard to feed so many people. I read a book called "full planets, empty plates" by lester brown, i thought it was a good book... it has a sense of dread and urgency, makes me feel like the problem is beyond our saving.

There are too many humans on earth. The eternal struggle to reproduce. How do you feel about all of this?

Indians mostly eat chicken, and SEA Asians are freaking out about their health and only eating fish.
Meat is just as efficient as vegetables, otherwise we would not be evolutionarily inclined to eat it. That is, it provides much more calories the body needs per gram than vegetables.

Read the book Can Life Prevail? by Pentti Linkola for more info about deep ecology and overpopulation. Technological Slavery by Ted Kaczynski is another good book which critiques modern industrialism and cultural issues. The Collapse of Western Civilization by Erik M. Conway and Naomi Oreskes is also okay (it's about climate change), though it has an annoyingly liberal slant to it. Linkola's brand of right-wing ecology and advocacy for small and sustainable communities is nicer, in my opinion.

Capitalism and democracy will be the death of humanity. We will continue to consume unsustainably and increase our numbers if we don't make drastic changes to society.
>> No. 560 [Edit]
The issue as I see it will not be a lack of food but the type of food. Meat takes much more to produce than rice or wheat does, if it ever came to such that we were facing food shortages the answer would be to stop producing meat in as large amounts.
>> No. 1442 [Edit]
The populations of many advanced countries are now at a point where they have stopped growing and are even declining. This tends to be what happens when a nation becomes overpopulated, housing prices go up meaning it is much harder to get a large house to raise children in or even a house at all so by the time you do get it your wife is over 30 years old and will only have maybe one child.

But it doesn't happen so much like that in developing nations and the other worry is while there is food now these nations are not the most stable or developed so there are many events that could trigger catastrophic food shortages leading to mass famine and unrest. Nigeria would be a good example of that but even Egypt falls into this, if the Nile dries up they are done.

By your own calculations that would give us 14 grams of rice a day... I don't think that is happening. This doesn't include the impact that 500 billion people would have on the land required to produce this either(or the impact it would have on the world as whole for that matter). Even so, 1Kg isn't really that much and probably does not take into account waste or poor quality crops that get given to animals because they are not really fit for people(and the fact that animals themselves produce food).

If only Covid was more contagious, we might at least rid our selves of all the old people(which would be good for the economy as well).

True but most meat is produced in areas where crops do not grow(think central Australia) and also livestock isn't that bad for the environment, Methane has a short lifespan compared to other green house gases and much doesn't reach the atmosphere.

It's inside out.
>> No. 1382 [Edit]
It's both flat and hollow, thus cylinder shaped.
The bottom of the cylinder is likely occupied by a mirror-world where everything is opposite, similarly with the lower portions of the interior, though that's a mirror of the interior of the earth.
It is possible that the mirror-interior (and through it the mirror-earth) can be accessed through the bottom of the inner earth, though if that is the case then one would likely fall up until one hit the bottom of the mirror earth, what with it being mirrored, and that wouldn't be conductive to one's health.
The sides meanwhile, are likely to be occupied by a large serpent, be it Leviathan or Jormungandr and can thus not be traversed without being eaten.
>> No. 1424 [Edit]
its probably flat since its velocity/direction of velocity doesnt change. if the earth was going in a circle around the sun then you would be heavier during day time and lighter during night time, since during the night the earth is between you and the sun so it cant push you onto the orbital path and has to use purely gravity to keep you held down, meanwhile during the day the earth can push you in the right direction while also using gravity to keep you held down.

i hope thats clear enough, if not, think of it like a car doing donuts. you get thrown against the side of the car and you feel a constant force because your velocity of your body is constantly being corrected onto the path of the car. on the scale of earth it wouldnt be that much of a difference if the earth moves around one degree every day in the circle in makes around the sun, but i think with good enough equipment it should be detectable.
>> No. 1425 [Edit]
You'd actually be lighter during the day since the earth is pulling you towards it while the sun is pulling you away from the earth. The sun is so far away though, that this difference is negligible on any normal scale.

The earth's gravity is also sufficient enough for people and the earth to act as one object accelerating together.

Over the last two weeks I've had an inordinate amount of free-time, a lot of which I wasted torturing myself by exposing my mind to normalfag neurotoxins because I'm masochistic, self-destructive and frustrated by my complete inability to control the enviroment around me. The result of all this was a list I made about feminism. So lets talk about it to heal our addled minds and restore a bit of sanity.

Feminism, regardless of whatever someone's nonsensical personal interpretation of it, tends to have a few common tenets:

1. There is a patriarchy, a society-wide, concerted effort to keep woman down. Every man who does not "fight it" is part of the patriarchy.

2. Promoting feminism is the way to promote general equality. If society reached "peak feminism" there would be no issues that disproportionately affect either sex. Quality of life and happiness will also certainly be higher for everybody.

3. Women are a victimized class of people today and in the western first world. They are victimized more so than men. Feminism cannot exist unless woman are "the victims" and will never become obsolete because the goalposts will be perpetually changing.

4. Human beings are born blank slates. There are no innate psychological differences between men and women that tend to occur. If there are any exceptions to a potential trend, that proves that the trend does not exist. (extension of Marxism)

5. Feminism cannot be characterized by the words and actions of individuals or groups with money and power who identify as feminist. It is only characterized by vague, theoretical ideas.

6. Women are not a hive mind and are all unique individuals who can not be generalized in any way, but they should have a strong sense of group identity and work towards common interests. "Sisterhood" and individualism are somehow not contradictory. A shared victimhood should be the unifying factor among women.

I agree with them so far as photographic depiction of 3D women goes, but as 2D is the best realistic alternative to this, 2D is in fact the only way of achieving what they wish to achieve. that plus the fact that a lot of the focus on anime specifically arises from the extremely racist stereotype of the "yellow peril" being perverted and arriving to rape white women. but it can only be expected that such bigotry remains amongst radical feminists such as Clare Short.

if they were brainwashed by the media they wouldn't have voted for Brexit, the whole media was against that.

the lower house is independent insofar as "corporate voters" in the form of donations can outvote any normal voter. I think that there is a greater accountability to be had at the expense of this existing independence for the lower house also.
