Psychiatry only exists as a means for charlatans posing as doctors to trick individuals into forking over large amounts of cash in exchange for complicated excuses for their terrible behavior as well as access to otherwise illegal addictive feel-good pills.

What do you mean by terrible behavior?

Oh no not this stupid airplane question again (>>/navi/1012). I'm also not sure why it needed to be posted since it's probably going to derail any discussion towards your main point.

I think that the field of psychology and psychiatrists in particular are mostly ineffective. That being said for a large majority of normal people's problems (hypothetically sadness due to a breakup or some other surface-level trivial issue) it's possible that just having someone to "talk it out" with and being patted on the back with platitudes is sufficient to re-patch their facade of life. But psychiatrists are pretty much ineffective for anything else, and any advice they give is vastly overpriced for what amounts to items found in self-help books.

I don't see the pressing need to move "upwards" in terms of jobs. Even though many people will jokingly acknowledge the "rat race" that is society, they'll still nonetheless jockey for promotions or so on. What's wrong with just having a bare-minimum job that provides enough to live a modest life? If you live only for yourself, you don't really need much to live comfortably (especially if you abandon physical materialism).

Money gives options and freedom. The default option is always shit in America. Maybe in Europe, especially places like Switzerland, that's not the case, wealthy places with a small population and socialist policies, but it is in the US. Everything is ugly and dirty and low-quality unless you have money and can pay to isolate yourself from the peasants. That's how it is, even if most politicians wont admit it.

>This survey is just bad. The questions focus mostly on a black and white version of politics where only two opposing ideologies exist. I answered neutral to so many of the questions, and often some were just poorly written english that made no sense.
I agree, the absolute nature of many of the questions kind of ruined it.

For example, I am generally extremely pro-reformist and believe that revolution as a last-ditch effort, but I firmly believe that there is a point at which reform fails and revolution is required. By affirming this, I am considered to favor revolution, which is not the case.

Simple usually means less civilized. No internet connection. Having to grow your own food, and then cook it, and then clean up after cooking. Long distance away from supplies, like basic cleaning necessities. Who knows about the bathroom situation. Getting your water from a well or something.

Americans as a whole are extremely opinionated and self-righteous in general. They have an inflated sense of self-worth. American losers are both extremely dissatisfied with life and frustrated by their inability to change the world around them in a way that's meaningful to them. That's why you see people circle-jerking to politics in english speaking boards. Nobody else cares about whatever esoteric label you want to put on yourself guys.

Most people have hobbies. Nobody actually only talks about finances and health. You may not find sports or fishing or tv shows interesting, but there's a lot of average people who could talk about those things for hours. Most people aren't that intersting, but your view of them is totally innacurate. I doubt you spent much time with average people. I don't find most of your links particularly interesting, but i'm sure there's some completely average car enthusiasts who would.

it's not that you're sad. The worst thing is the complete lack of motivation. It's useless. You don't want to eat, you don't want to sleep, walk, work, watch movies. Literally nothing. So you often end up staring at one point without even thinking about anything (at least that's how it is with me).

I feel that I am not helped by medicines, psychiatrists, psychologists, motivational speakers, etc. In general, a strange belief that a psychologist is able to get to know my psyche better than I am during a short conversation and convince me to choose life. Can they read minds? I have no idea why doctors turn into such alpha and omega doctors. I think that I know myself best and going to psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists is a waste of time and money. These people are only… people. They will serve me their standard speech, ask me questions that I could have come to myself if I had just thought about it and tell me what I already know very well. Most of us know the answers to the questions they can ask us and can imagine what we will hear during such a conversation with a psychologist or a psychiatrist. Nothing new, nothing we don't know. Nonsense about them offering me a new perspective and turning back from a depressing path can be put between fairy tales. If you are a man who thinks about his life and knows himself well enough, psychiatrists with all their talk become useless. I know all that they can tell me. The problem is that I can't apply this knowledge. It is like listening to a logical and rational argument and when a part of you nods your head that "yes, right, you are right! The texts about talking on the phone support line don't convince me either. Depressed people don't really want to talk to the receiver, to strangers, because most of them are so closed in themselves that they'd rather hang themselves on a dry branch than talk to strangers about their problems. "Talking is a myth. You will tell someone about your problems and what? What will it actually change? The problems will still remain the same, the weight will be lighter for a minute, and then it will come back with a doubled force, because the truth is that we are always completely alone in the end.

I feel that with age man simply becomes limestone, I see it particularly clearly in myself. The

True communism, never existed in the world. We can talk about communists -people with a certain definition of communism, views and possibly communal ownership, in a state reality which has as much to do with communism as design space ferries with chicken farms.Even
the communist government, composed of communists, does not determine the communist regime and sooner on the more or less real or more or less utopian version of socialism.

First of all, communism has never been built, maybe apart from the Sultanate of Brunei and the United Arab Emirates, where thanks to the small size of the country and with large oil deposits, a system was introduced that the citizen gets what he needs from power and for free. But even there there are class differences and money,which in communism should not be necessary.

Meanwhile in a society which fully understand idea of communism , each individual will intuitively know what to do and where to go
to enter into resonance with another unit that is able to provide it (whether it's a service or a good). There will be no currency in this a society. Everyone will do what he is passionate about and excitement. For example, one person is passionate about producing healthy food and other person is passionate about producingtools for the production of this food. Some of them will satisfy the needs of others without the need for money. In our present society, this solution exists partly among passionate people. The one who lives with passion and excitement will notice the same as "things" always happen in the right place and time, and one does not have to strain too much to live in abundance.

Unfortunately, today's society is dominated by the desire to dominate and having more than others. This creates a hierarchy and social problems . Let changes take place they must occur at the level of the individual and then at the level of the collective.

No, they won't. People are not blank slates and people are not ants. What if there is not enough people passionate about growing food, or driving buses, or cleaning toilets, or working in a factory? If I want a laptop, how would I get it and how would it be made? Would there there be a laptop guild? Would they have the resources to get the supplies and equipment plus maintenance and electricity for it? With the help of people who just happen to be passionate about providing those things? What would I give in exchange for the laptop? Would they really just give it to me, let alone 500 other people? How long would it take to get mine?

How would the people passionate about growing food decide on who gets what land? I don't want to share land. Who will stop me from fighting over it? What if the guys who grow food decide to only give it to people in exchange for servitude and other forms of authority? They could team up and basically form a new, non-real communism government? They'll want to do it to, regardless of how well they know communism. What about their kids? Will they give a shit about ideology? Who will be responsible for teaching real communism if not a government?

Any government will take advantage of their power to live better than others. You need a government to stop another government from being formed by people who posses necessities or weapons. "Domination" is simply a means to an end, a better life for you and your family.

Or, I could just do nothing and live off others work. What about people who are passionate about nothing or watching TV all day? Or eating and breeding? What if way more people are "passionate" about things that aren't beneficial to others?

If I work harder than some fucker, I want to live better than him, otherwise, why bother? Many people think like that, at least to some extent, and then things turn to shit. You can't reprogram human nature, which did not evolve to be compatible with communism

I'm not sure what to tell people who get mad corporations not for the amount that a corporation takes off for themselves, but for the mere concept of taking a cut off the top for themselves. That's their motivation to invest in the system in the first place. And that's not a defense of Crunchyroll, but a criticism of any company involved in the middleman role.

And I'm pretty sure that the animation studios will get paid for fulfilling their orders some point down the line, even if the compensation for demand/supply is not representatively distributed.

I don't understand why you're leaping to the conclusion that the bulges and protrusions you're fapping to in OP pic are female in nature. If you compare the appearances of the genitals of both genders you'll find that it is male genitals which produce large bulges in the crotch region while female genitalia tends to be much, much less convex in appearance when covered with a thin layer of fabric.

They have a sports bra, short hair, thin arms, and a massive ass. The crease in the middle is from the seam. There's no reason to think that's a male. The labia is emphasized so much for the same reason every other feature is. Cartoony drawings exaggerate things.
