While my personal outlook has never been stronger or more optimistic, I will say my general outlook, as a South African, is that things will get a lot worse before they get better. It's weird to be back here in this part of cyberspace, as I've largely ignored this kind of discourse online or offline. I realise retrospectively that my thoughts and intuitions regarding the kind of topics discussed here have only crystallized even further, despite nearly a whole year of trying to find counterarguments in my daily existence, I'm unable to do so. I feel like every experience I have just affirms my intuition despite an extreme effort from my part to over-search and over-fit for counterfactual evidence of the contrary. I'm tired of actively fighting my innate intuitions and feelings though.

Imagine every single city or town in your country being neighbored by a giant slum. Imagine the streets of all these major cities and towns lined with homeless people, tents and trash everywhere. Women do not feel safe to walk anywhere. The percentage as a whole of my friends or acquaintances I know who've experienced violent crimes(stabbings/shootings, rape etc..) continues to increase. I could go on but I'll spare you the details of daily life in what is probably Africa's most developed city.

Good to be back. Keen to get into some serious heavy reading, as previously I think my interest was mainly based on the DAR subreddit and my knowledge mainly came from light written/video essays/blogs and some race-realism stuff. Currently reading René Girard alongside Guillaume Faye.

Something hilarious I just realized about our ancestors by lithre in debatealtright

I remember some book/journal I read called something like "Global Studies in Antisemitism", the whole book was basically them justifying Jewish religious supremacism(justifying the existance of Israel, Jewish religious exclusionary practices, promoting Jewish inter-marriage etc..) in the face of criticisms thereof. All the while justifying why they then publicly promote the exact opposite of these behaviours for others to follow.

Does anybody here know how to mass message redditors? by WaltzRoommate in debatealtright

I'm too busy right now but I can probably get to implementing this some time in the next few days.

Great to see everyone regrouping here so rapidly.

My mod account was banned and I assume all the others were as well. I wonder to what extent, if any, the regular contributors were banned.

Contacting everyone manually seems like too much effort, someone needs to write a script message all these users on reddit if their accounts still exist.

This makes me wonder about the extent to which actually just recruiting people straight from reddit could work.
