Creative Contest #1: What Is Your Beautiful Future?

We wish to build an optimistic view of the future. We believe there is truth in being able to will a positive future into existence through our thoughts–if we know what kind of future we want to create, we will start to act in a way that is conducive towards its unfolding. We do not dismiss the ongoing and upcoming tribulations that we will face. However, we also do not want people to ignore the beautiful future that they can help create. Furthermore, we hope to create a roadmap for future political action, whether at the local, national, or supranational level. We need to develop concrete ideas for what our ideal society looks like. The beauty of creating is in forcing Man to formulate his ideas in a genuine way.

It's incredible how similar this is to my post here.

Short of getting an extremely good quality water filter for your home, you still end up showering in it even if you change your regular drinking water.

We ought to have discussions about this on this sub.

One article I've just read suggests that an activated carbon filter can remove some phthalates, but not necessarily all. A nano-filtration system would be more expensive but also more effective. Carbon filters, at least, are commonly available for showerheads.

When you think about it, that's going to make its way into the foods you consume as well.

Growing your own food and raising livestock could mitigate this, unless phthalates can make their way into rainwater (which I can't find any information on).

Eating organic food could also help reduce some exposure.

Just so everyone knows it looks like the original image is a photoshop/parody of this Scientific American article, "Homophobes might be hidden homosexuals." It has the same author, tagline, and date (but the actual publication year is 2012 rather than 2019). Credit to literalotherkin for discovering this.

Also, not saying that elites aren't actually advocating for pedophilia or that they don't use this bullshit argument to further it or other kinds of degeneracy. Abominations like Cuties or DQSH make this apparent. However I don't think they're at the point of unironically using the term "pedophobe" yet.

This is why I find it incredibly difficult to sympathize with radfems. Despite opposing trans ideology, they still deny fundamental sex differences. That basic denial of reality is the very thing that made trans ideology possible.

That's not to mention all the other ways radical feminism enabled trans ideology and helped it to come into being.

Your post idea reminds me of the backwoods worm farm we see at the beginning of Blade Runner 2049. Good movie btw.

Also:

You will live in the pod (that's a converted shipping container on 20 acres of land in rural Montana)

You will eat the bugs (that you raise on your organic worm farm to supplement your diet of homegrown potatoes)

it's all bog standard crazy schizo shit just substituting in 'Covid' and 'vax' around the usual format of the 'NWO genociding everyone apart from 500 million' theory.

This is what bothers me, and it feels cut out of the same psyop cloth as "5G causes coronavirus".

I don't trust the vaccine, but I don't believe it will cause millions to drop dead. And in a year from now when they don't, the libtards are going to all point and laugh at the conspiracy theorists who predicted they would. The conspiracy theorists themselves will feel confused and ashamed and maybe even abandon their more reasonable beliefs. It's a huge psyop on both sides.

If you are terrified of foreign mrna in your body you clearly shouldn't get covid since it is a giant ball of replicating mrna that replicates in your circulatory system.

This is a false dichotomy.

It implies that there is a binary choice: either get the vaccine or contract COVID. That simply isn't true, it's entirely possible to avoid both. How do you think most people survived through 2020?

Can't find it online (iirc Netflix still has Cuties up which was far more flagrant, I don't see why SA would take down an article from 2019) not even mirrored anywhere, the pic looks a bit shooped, and the text below the headline sounds a little too much like bait or Babylon Bee tier satire

Was the car a positive or negative development for society? by Ponderer in debatealtright

[–]Ponderer[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Obviously every community should be built so that employment and essentials -- such as schools, shops, medical services, and the like -- can be found within walking distance of one's residence. But cars will still have significant utility as individual transport between settlements, and hopefully there will be developments in sustainable transport in the future.

This sounds like the ideal world. I could see some speculative fiction examining a society that works like this, where communities themselves are completely walkable, and only use cars to travel between them.

I like that take. I call it a "problem of scale", basically when something isn't bad in and of itself, but becomes bad when everyone does it.

For example, fishing isn't bad. But if too many people fish too much, the natural supply of fish is exhausted. There are plenty of things like this, and people portray the original thing as a problem, when in reality it's just the amount of people doing it, which is much more subtle and harder to blame.

Oh, I totally agree things would be screwed if we run out of gas now. But that's mostly because we've already built our society to be dependent on it.

Before the car, most people lived on a farm. Combined with their local community, they were more-or-less self-sufficient. Not being able to travel to the next town over would deny them access to specialized goods like medicines, but they would still have necessities like food and water. That's not the case today.

I wish I knew more history about this, specifically relating to stuff like Communist regimes. Surely there were some nomads in Siberia or whatever that the Politburo didn't deign to notice?

Living isolated out in the boonies may even be more dangerous than the relative anonymity of a town or a small city.

This is also a concept that interests me. I suppose it depends on how strict things get and what's demanded of the average person.

It depends on how small you want to go. Heck, maybe we could get creative here.

If you're okay with van living, but you want a living space that's not permanently attached to your vehicle, how about a teardrop trailer?

Very inexpensive. There's plans online so you could probably build one yourself with your own materials. Depending on the size, maybe you could even fit one in the back of a pick-up, which would mean that length or parking would not be an issue. Would that work?

Good question. I'm not sure. I think he was semi-popular e-celeb, and being a neurologist made him a high-value target. Also, him posting "I am a neurologist who specializes in small animal brains who works at a university in Evanston Chicago" (albeit not all at the same time) narrowed things down a lot and made him low-hanging fruit.

This is a really interesting idea that I'm thinking about too.

Costs of buying land are skyrocketing, but renting is far from ideal - it's a constant drain on your wallet, and the landlord might threaten you with eviction.

Having a camper means you actually own the place that you live, and it's a lot cheaper than the cost of a house. As you said, there's also the possibility of moving it around as needed. If you wanted to you could even buy a plot of land and park the camper on it.

If you don't own your own land though, are there good places to park a camper long-term?

Chemical off-gassing from many of the building materials.

This would concern me the most. Maybe it's possible to buy something that's mostly metal or made somewhere with better production quality? Or even to build one?

The easiest online business to start might be a t-shirt shop, where you outsource the actual manufacturing of the shirts and just put your own designs on them.

So basically you're just selling the design (which in some cases might not even be yours, maybe it's in the public domain). You have another company print it on the shirts, then list those on the site for a mark-up.

Not saying it's particularly glamorous or contributing something amazing to the world, but it's easy to start and could make you some side income if you have cool designs.

You guys were talking about blackpillers being demoralizing, but how could you not see this as being somewhat similar?

This is a good point, and I'm going to make a post about this.

It's almost like preemptively damning the ones that don't meet certain criteria to accepting that they're unlovable, and it doesn't make sense.

I think the accepted mainstream narrative is something like "looks don't matter at all when it comes to dating, human attraction is purely based on morality and has no superficial qualities whatsoever", which is totally insane and off-the-rails.

However, to counteract this, many people online adopt the position "looks are literally everything when it comes to dating, and if you don't have xyz qualities as a man then you are undatable", which (although our modern culture has certainly driven up the importance of looks) seems inaccurate. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I think it's just one assumption: that he felt alone. To be fair I can't prove it, but it explains things.

Maybe antifa got him. I wouldn't even be against that theory, I just don't see any more proof for it. If he was standing firm, why close his accounts?

Maybe it's rude to point this out, but for the sake of this debate, the person you're responding to has never been in the shoes of a man trying to attract women.

I also strongly agree with you that attraction is not "extremely subjective". That take has always been incomprehensible to me; I don't see how anyone can say it with a straight face.

I think there's room for debate on to what degree attraction is objective. Maybe the statement "it's more subjective than you might think" could be valid. But "attraction is extremely subjective" is just... wrong. We need to stay grounded to reality here.

He also made several points about white people pushing back against racism or what is publicly perceived as racism, and he's not wrong.

Maybe, but he wasn't really formulating that as a logical statement of fact, as some kind of revelation, or as part of a rational argument. It was more just presented as something to be "pessimistic" or depressed about.

That's not exactly blackpilled, that's understanding the psychology of what people will do to avoid potential discomfort and disruption of their lifestyle.

But he explicitly states in his last post "Reality is a blackpill"

He has also made statements like "Yes, that's why there's no foreseeable hope, whites are too stupid to save their race." and things like that very frequently. He often says that there is nothing that can be done, or that all activism is useless. Only when pushed to the limit will he give any solutions, and even then it's utterly non-specific non-answers like "work hard", "put up flyers", or "use television".

I would give this guy the benefit of the doubt if he titled this post "We are losing badly, but here's how we can turn things around" and actually offered solutions. Or even if he came out and admitted he was blackpilled and gave well-sourced reasons why. But instead he plays this weird game of openly demoralizing, and then jumping back and saying "oh, actually I'm trying to encourage you."

At the very least it feels like he's misrepresenting his positions.

"Shill" is uncalled for since I obviously have with good intentions.

You don't "obviously" have good intentions if most people believe you have bad intentions behind these posts. What's "obvious" about it if everyone is calling you out?

"I'm really great at communicating my point of view, it's just that everyone else sucks at understanding me!"

At what point will you understand: if no one else gets your message, then the way you are communicating is the problem?

I've said there can be hope if we create it, so how is that shilling?

Where did you say this, just now?

What if there is no hope for precisely the reasons I've outlined: sedentary activism of the altright?

You know what would be cool? If you were making posts saying "Here is specifically what we're doing wrong now, here is specifically what we could be doing better."

You know, instead of "We are losing badly, we should be pessimistic, we should be blackpilled, we've been losing ground for decades, I don't see things improving, oh woe is me" with zero solutions like you've been doing.

I've seen countless posts on forums where people say we're winning.

Oh yeah?

Point out a post on this sub that says this. Not a comment, a post, and one other than the one I mentioned.

Can you find even one from this week? This month? This year?

I'll give you a hint: you can't, because it's all demoralizing blackpill shit like what you've been posting.

Sometimes people listen to sad music to make themselves feel better.

This is pure unadulterated desperation.

You know that gym example is ridiculous, and yet it's exactly what you're doing.

This study doesn't even prove your point. It goes directly against you because the sad people felt more "relaxed" and "calm" after listening to the sad music, not energized or interested in changing things.

You say you're here to blackpill and make people pessimistic in one moment, and now you say you're here to make people "feel better". BS.

I was recently reading about a sci-fi game that suggested space-based societies would use cryptocurrency.

At first I thought it was just pandering to its audience, but in retrospect it makes sense. If every physical resource is common, then mathematical scarcity might be the only thing rare enough to trade.

This also makes me think that people who spent thousands stocking up on precious metals will be screwed in a few decades if asteroid mining becomes commonplace.

we're always "winning" and "about to win."

Show me any post on this sub that has ever said this.

I can't find any made in the past week. Or in the past month. I can find exactly one in the past year, and it was made 11 months ago. I challenge you to find any others.

Go ahead, prove your point to me. I dare you.

The bigger point is to encourage you to do something about the white problem.

I'm going to be honest with you. Your mind works differently than other people's.

I don't know what's different about your mind, but you are not having the effect you intend to have, and you can't seem to realize it, even though many people have told you otherwise.

Look at the top-rated responses to your post. Do those seem like "encouraged" people? No, they are all calling you a demoralization shill.

Maybe you think that you are in the right, and everyone else is in the wrong. But that's like saying "I'm great at communicating, everyone else is just bad at listening." At some point, you have to recognize that your attempts aren't just falling flat, they are backfiring and being rejected aggressively.

I'm not sure if you know this, but when the average person goes to the gym, they often listen to motivational tracks to pump them up. These include affirmations like "You have the power!" "Keep it up!" "Every day is another victory!" "Don't give up!" "Getting stronger every day!" "Have a positive attitude!" Stuff like that. That's what the average person sees as encouraging.

If you go to the gym, do you put on a track that says "You're failing badly," "Every day you grow weaker and weaker," "You look in the mirror and see no progress," "Nothing you've done has succeeded," "Be pessimistic," "Everything you try meets failure"?

People are calling you a shill because you can't seem to understand that.

I've noticed that too. I think the admin said on Ruqqus that he's updating it. Still, not great news for the fledgling site.

Keep your edgy accounts separated completely, including any email addresses associated with them, assume that the platforms are compromised and staff will leak your email to antifa.

This is really important. Ideally I would use them on different browsers, log-in sessions, maybe even different devices with separate IPs.

Don't use twitter at all, ever.

I think this depends on your threat model. There's some people who use it to spread a message or useful information (like https://twitter.com/Peter_Nimitz for example). But definitely do a cost-benefit analysis.

I also have to wonder if social media as a whole will turn against dissidents at some point, and when and how extensive that might be.

Don't use your real name on the internet at all anywhere ever.

Agreed in principle. Some may make exceptions for career reasons or friends and family. Those who do that should be extremely careful what they put on other accounts they have. And using your real name for any non-essential reason is very foolish.

He was not just based in Chicago, but also in one of the most liberal areas in the country

He stated on his Twitter that he had to keep his views secret in real life, and the fact that he had a Twitter at all suggests that he was looking for contact with sane people he just couldn't find IRL.

So he probably felt very isolated and might not have had even one non-woke friend or family member to turn to when everything went down.
