ITT: Anime/Manga/VN quotes that provoke thought and discussion
All urls found in this thread:
Manlets doesn't look good with anything.
What about high heels?
High Heels were originally for men, worn while riding horses to prevent feet from slipping off.
Human Alice just looks wrong.
Kaiji actually has shitloads of depressing/motivational quotes
Here's a good one. It's not some pointlessly edgy bollocks about the nature of humanity. It's a personal question.
That's a disgusting set of answers.
It's all about the shape.
Because option 4 is overly sentimental tripe.
God fucking damn it, this is actually hard.
If i were playing the VN then
What are the "correct" answers for these? In the vn, not morally
"Fun things are fun".
''Big black dicks are fun but niggers don't have money so i gotta fuck middle aged office rats''.
She looks more inbred than Rika Inou.
I like the one from Umineko where it was:
To save the others you must sacrifice one.
1 Your own life
2 The love of your life
3 Your family
Guy sounds like a fag desu
I actually hate things like these, because in reality it's "depends" except for that last one.
Risa Inou (mother/paternal half-sister/)
Tomaru Sawagoe (father/grandfather/great-grandfather/great-great-grandfather/great-great-great-grandfather/half-great-great-granduncle/lover)
in reality it's "depends"
Maybe for you, you selfish rat bastard. I would take on the entire world for my waifu and do anything for her happiness.
except for that last one.
not your child
Piece of shit
And I don't even have a good answer for it, nothing other than "I just do" - A feeling of satisfaction, self-gratification, innate thirst for "Knowing" taken to up to eleven? Idk man, just translate the second VN already.
2 - If it's nothing too serious I'd just cover for her
Such a whiny, edgy bitch. Just wanna beat her to death and dump her in the ocean
We're getting the anime adaptation soon. So I can cry again.
Such a whiny, edgy bitch.
If you're going to try to bait, at least say something that could imaginably be applicable to her. Call her a fake, an airhead, mentally retarded, something like that. Calling her whiny when she's 80% of what makes the first 20 hours of the game fun makes no sense, and calling her edgy when literally any of the other 4 heroines exist is so out of place that it's just funny.
I am selfish. Since the second one is "I'll wait for you" instead of "goodbye forever" I'm fine with that. It works things out on its own. If I can help it though, I'd ask my waifu to stay with me. If I ask her to stay and she says no that means she values that more than me, so there's nothing I can do about that, that's fine. That's why I say "depends", because this isn't specific enough. I don't know if saying "stay with me" binds her to me for the rest of my life without her consent. If it did, I wouldn't say it.
Same with the second. What was the crime? Did she kill someone? Did she steal something of minor value? Are the police looking for the criminal? Why did she do it? I'm not going to make her confess for taking a pen out of a store or something, if she won't get caught for it that's dumb.
Nothing wrong with wanting the things that make you happy. I want to die satisfied, not regretting that I gave everything up for other peoples' sakes.
not your child
Piece of shit
I said it doesn't depend for that last one. Child comes first, I'd save the kid no matter what.
she's 80% of what makes the first 20 hours of the game fun makes no sense
Yeah, no. She was just the butt end of jokes and only autists would find her retardation "fun".
calling her edgy when literally any of the other 4 heroines exist is so out of place that it's just funny
Except the other heriones actually had good reason for acting the way the did. Her route literally went like this
-hey yuuji, i'm not a complete retard afterall. i can totally be deep and edgy
-hey yuuji, let's play a game of pretend, since i'm retarded and all
-hey, my cat died. probably figured it would be better to die than put up with me
-i was born retarded, my parents hate me for it, and my whore friend killed herself. super sad.
-holy shit, yuuji's actually helping me die after i wouldn't stop bitching about it every 5 seconds. everyone is so sad, guess i didn't want to die afterall. i'm such a fucking retard.
-hey edgy spirit, let's be best friends forever. totally super awesome xD.
Worst shit I have ever read in my life.
Sauce? This looks familiar but GIS isn't giving me shit.
You're using words like 'literally' and 'actually', yet you lazily throw 'edgy' around like it's the only adjective in existence.
Her ending was shit though. Awful ending to an otherwise great route for best girl.
It would be great if he wasn't whacking it while saying that.
Her route is garbage. That doesn't change the fact that her being the butt of jokes makes her important just like the rest of the cast. Everyone has a dynamic with eachother, and she fits hers and completes the circle of friends in a way that would make everything feel like there's something missing if she wasn't there.
Hell, that was kind of the entire point of the latter part of her route now that I'm thinking about it.
Oh, fuck, I didn't realize I picked the wrong number for the third one. I meant 1.
OP has many traditionally sad moments, and this is not the most fucked up by any stretch of the imagination. But that speech really hit hard, probably because I always believed in that, since well before reading it.
Obvious number 3. You can have small tits that are still ugly, floppy messes. If the shape is good then the size does not matter.
Her route was really fucking stupid. All the other ones had some degree of reality mixed in but hers just jumped the the shark with that heart bullshit. Fuck Mitcher and anyone who thinks her route is anything but garbage.
Oh of course not but it was the second thing I thought of when searching for an appropriate quote.
The first was Dragon's first appearance in Loguetown where he talks about things that never end but eh.
I'm with you. What I tried to say is that I only got misty eyed at 50 years of solitude, or being a fugitive since 8. But Hiluluk's speech was so significative for me that I actually cried. Heavy stuff.
Love that quote.
Her route was really fucking stupid
No-one's denying that. Mitcher's my favourite girl in that whole series and even I think her route has an incredibly disappointing good ending.
The bad ending was great though. Great as in heartbreaking.
More like, stupid, isn't it? But hes being honest in both, what he wants, and what he believes, so he shouldn't expect any other outcome, but she shouldn't feel aggrieved.
this is literally the worst glorification bullshit in all of eastern media
Jesus Christ this guy is such a fedora tipper
I don't really get very emotional anymore but yeah, fully agree that there are a colossal amount of unfortunate fates in OP world. It's a really goddamn dark place for a lot of people.
This is true. I spent the entirety of my childhood and teenage years looking like shit because my parents never once explained to me the importance of appearance and how you present yourself.
People with normal upbringings don't know how blessed they are. I could avoid showering or bathing for months and my parents would not comment.
I wanna say I'd save myself if the child isn't even old enough to remember me, but in the moment I'd probably save the kid without thinking.
What is this from?
"A boy falls in love with a girl. Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number."
the hell did any of that have to do with religion?
Man, I remember back in highschool I wouldn't even change my underwear or shower for weeks. Everyone around me would tell me I smelled like piss all the time and would stay away from me/pick on me. I didn't stop because I was taught to
an hero, newfag
The hell are these moonrunes?
Well yeah, the show doesn't hide it. It's about him growing out of that mindset.
Well thats nice, but, what happens when a man loses the sensibility necessary for getting in touch with poetry?
It can happen suddenly, and without an obvious cause, rendering that person almost dead.
What to do then?
the hell did any of that have to do with religion?
The only thing it has to do with it is that salty fedoras keep bringing it up when you mention fedoras.
what is this?
She is just calling him out on his complete lack of self confidence, and that he shouldn't say all of this pathetic shit when doing asking someone out, even when it's true.
Or maybe she is just a bitch and has no good intentions, I don't know, never watched this.
Back in 2015, Japan has this discussion about their economic future and having doubt about their young generation. Someone then post that huge ads on newspaper which pretty much say, "Don't make fun of us Otaku, we are your savior through anime, game, and idol."
otakuwo (an otaku's, or 'as an otaku', not too sure which)
bakanisuruna. (baka meaning idiot? or might be a word related to pic's filename)
then there's some kanji shit at the bottom idk.
I watched that entire show and he does not grow out of that mindset
Please return to /v/ and keep your Reddit-originated forced meme over there in that particular trash bin. Polite sage for off-topic.
he has a point
He's hurting someone who feel hurt seeing him hurting himself
To be fair it's too romantic to be true on the first place. In real world Hikigaya has right to think like that.
This page hit me hard as fuck and I think about whenever I'm feeling down
and why should he?
The LN is still on-going
"Don't make fun of us Otaku, we are your savior through anime, game, and idol."
we are your savior through anime, game, and idol
Also, anyone have the complete image of this?
Pretentious subjectivist babble. It's embarrassing that you thought it was worth sharing.
That's Cao Cao, isn't it?
You can tell it's Cao Cao rhethoric.
The message isn't difficult to understand. Use context clues, anon.
They're keeping the anime industry alive with their constant purchasing of uncensored blu ray discs and miniature loli figurines, or so they're claiming.
Tineye said this is from hentai, google give some japanese blogs about certain words but not with name of manga.
Hate this shit.
Nope. It was still in Qin's wars of unification era.
Otsuka Kotora] Deprives
Actually it's hentai.
Someone post Juicy Yuuji contemplating beans.
Subtle. I like it.
Man... really makes u think
its like pottery
absolutely mind blowing
not posting the superior version.
PRINCIPAL ROUTE RIGHT FUCKING NOW GOD FUCKING DAMN IT.
This why I've been trying to change myself.
You'll always be a beta loser anon. Accept it, rot, and die
this desu senpai
Threadly reminder that you should stop posting that because it's been updated.
Accept it, rot, and die
That'd be nice actually, but that's kinda the point, so no.
Stop posting this because it already found a way.
those who mistake kindness for weakness are the ones who regret it later on
She appears to be conflating "wanting to be liked" and "being a decent person".
There is a major difference between being nice and being a chump
Kyou no Asuka Show
She was telling him to man the fuck up
People still don't get what he was saying, I blame that idiotic k-on image.
his dying wish was for his dog to be fed chicken
was he autistic?
His dying wish is a continuation of the metaphor and not understood by those present at his death.
I know, right?
This page has a 50/50 chance of being happy and soul crushing.
That's a really good one.
I blame that idiotic k-on image.
That one always makes me laugh. It's so full of shit.
I'm pretty sure he was just autistic, he certainly exhibits a number of signs that would indicate autism.
I actually really don't
I still don't get it.
Bestiality doujin. A woman was seduced by an alligator and had sex with it and her lover found out.
'Right' is a polysemy in that it can refer to both 'correct' and 'politically conservative', and what makes the phrasing funny is that if you assume she means the latter, then anyone would agree that 'homosexuality isn't right'.
Normally someone would say that it's wrong, but the negative inflection could have been deliberately used.
Either that, or I'm reading too far into a lucky coincidence.
recognizing the evil effect of religion is fedora tier
Anon, it's an anime. They speak Japanese.
Your post makes me think of this image
Watch S2 idiot.
recognizing the evil effect of religion is fedora tier
In the grand scheme of things, the good done by the major organized Abrahamist religions far, far outweighs the bad. We can thank the Torah and the New Testament for basically all of civilized society and development as we know it. Look at the people who renounce those principles like on the extreme left. They have no moral compass and it's utter insanity. Whether you believe in the magic sky daddy or not, denouncing religion and all the good it has done is just being edgy.
recognizing the evil effect of religion is fedora tier
It's not that. It's failing to distinguish between good and bad religions, and/or failing to recognise the evil effects of ideologies the second they're no longer strictly classified as religions. That's fedora-tier.
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
Fuck, Poe's law is hard to surmount. I'm not serious, you fags.
It's from Girls Saurus. He got beaten badly by a girl and developed a fear of women as a result, and started seeing/referring to them as dinosaurs sometimes.
I'm not serious
I've never been good at detecting tone of voice in text.
No, I've read it, but the line is still nonsense.
You must be over 18 to post here.
Are the girls cute dinosaurs doing cute things? Or is it just metaphorical?
someone took what I said at face value
what a shocker
replacing something with nothing
Modern Atheism is hedonism masquerading as philosophy.
It is the absence of a unifying culture. It is the death of nations.
I don't remember actually reading the line so I don't know the full context, but isn't he just doing what people do, ascribing negative qualities to things he doesn't like regardless of whether they actually display those qualities? Like in school, any bad students would just heap all kinds of shit on a teacher who gave them poor grades, accusing them of not wanting them to learn, or not caring about the class, etc etc.
Most of the time they're just cute girls, I think there's a handful of splash pages where they're drawn as realistic dinosaurs but it's been a really long time.
I used the opiate of the masses line, anon. In a thread about manga quotes that provoke thought. Did I need to quote Nietzsche and compare myself to the Joker?
It's not some pointlessly edgy bollocks
but that's exactly what it is. This is essentially asking why you learn things. It's poorly thought out question. The answer is simple
"why do we need an explanation" because that's how we understand the world around us to better navigate it.
I can't imagine going through life without a yearning to understand things, if you don't have this basic human need you might as well not even be self-aware.
The wording of the question is important, if you change it, it is obviously much easier to answer. If you go into an out of context thread, what practical difference does it make if you find out the context of the things that are posted there?
I did not change the the question. Obviously since the situation in that scene was not fully convey with one picture, I'm taking it at face value and the OP posted it without any other context so i'm assuming the message he's trying to convey is exactly as the picture seems.
She asks him why he needs an explanation for everything, and that is about as dumb as asking why you seek truth.
The word "need" is the important one anon. You don't by any means need to explain everything that makes you curious. It is not questioning a desire for explanations in general, it is questioning a need for it in every situation.
The question in the image is:
Do you really need an explanation for everything?
You then answered the question 'why do we need an explanation', which is a completely different question in every respect. You changed 'you' to 'we'. You added 'why' to shift the emphasis away from personal implication to bland philosophising. You then removed the most important part of the question and the one thing that gave a hint of its context which was 'for everything'.
The whole point of the original question is to confront someone with the realisation that there are going to be mysteries in their life that will remain unsolved and unsolvable, and that they're going to learn to cope with that. It's not essentially asking why you learn things. It's not asking 'why' at all. Of course a question is going to seem like bollocks when you deliberately misinterpret it.
they're going to have to learn to cope with that*
The word "need" is the important one anon
semantics, you can assign more weight to that word like when clinton asked what the meaning of the word "is," is
It is not questioning a desire for explanations in general,
I'll assume you know the whole conversation and can make that assumption
it is questioning a need for it in every situation.
I understand the futility in needing to know everything in a literal sense, but I thought she was using that a hyperbole. If the character does have a overly inquisitive nature I can see that being aggravating and would understand why she asks that but I don't know this VN.
In my defense the faggot OP shouldn't have posted it without more context if they wanted it interpreted some other way then her asking what seems to be an ill-conceived or at least one that someone with an incredibly defeatists, pessimistic outlook would ask. either are annoying
Why would you assume a quote in a thread about quotes that provoke thought, in a post that specifically says the quote is not pointlessly edgy bollocks, is such an easily answered question that any idiot could answer by asking what you should do when touching a hot stove?
In my defense the faggot OP shouldn't have posted it without more context if they wanted it interpreted some other way
It was posted with three sentences of context which make the intention of the question clear. Context which you ignored because you had pre-emptively judged the question to be 'edgy bollocks' and decided that it was beneath you to even quote word-for-word. It speaks volumes that you're the only person in this thread who ever misinterpreted it.
You watch S2 you faggot. He didn't grow out of it.
Mitcher is literally the worst girl. Even worse than Sachi during her route
No.. it just means homosexuality is wrong. Total acceptance of homosexuality in society is the path to degeneracy, which will lead further down the hole, with next being transgender/transsexual acceptance and then to pedophilia.
All of these should be treated as mental disorders. To be sexually attracted to the same sex is and should be a mental disorder, and goes against the very nature of existence: you can't make a baby to further the continuation of our species. Moreover, the denial of one's sex of the one given to them is a sever mental disorder and should be treated as such.
Oh great its been like a decade and now I've gotta play Nanaca Crash again
I'm not too sure how you could even have that opinion given that the same game contains the obnoxious little ass that is Makina.
Sure, Michiru does an awful bait-and-switch in her good ending, but Makina is a remorseless psychopath through and through.
Don't even know the source or context but this has made me upset enought to post about it.
What she said is right, the guy needs more self-confidence. Some of the things he said were truths he couldn't change like the height and looks but he could have said some good things.
EVEN THEN, that this bitch's first response against someone with no self-confidence in themselves that is still afraid of being along is to be a cold bitch is enough to drive me to a blind rage. Why would you act like that to someone? Why treat someone who has no confidence in themselves but still tried to get over their fears like that? This complete lack of sympathy and potential personal issues on my end has brought me to fury, thanks.
She's completely right though. If you're mad because it hurts your feelings then maybe you belong on tumblr
Most of Makina's "bitchiness" comes from terrible translation. In the original she's not nearly as bad
She proceeds to walk him through all his good points.
Asking someone to be involved with you when your own assessment of yourself is that you are worthless is very strong evidence that the person asking is one of the most selfish scummy individuals the world has ever seen.
Total acceptance of homosexuality in society is the path to degeneracy, which will lead further down the hole, with next being transgender/transsexual acceptance and then to pedophilia.
All of these should be treated as mental disorders.
Sure, but that doesn't mean that the interpretation of the wordplay in question is necessarily wrong. I think anon was simply saying that either use of the word 'right' would still make perfect sense in that context.
Calm down you filthy nerd.
Watch the anime, the scene didn't just end like that pic.
Also there's literally nothing with being honest and blunt if it's TRUTH.
Oh come on, you just did the exact same thing. I said she was right, the guy needs more self confidence but being cold to someone like that is the worst response.
What do you say to someone who doesn't believe in themselves? You just want to re-affirm that by treating them like shit? Shit like that is just people trying to feel smug about crushing someone's heart.
Ok, that's good to hear.
Come on dude, if the guy was a lechorous freak maybe but are you really the scum of the earth for not believing in yourself but still wanting to know what it's like for someone to care about you? Is that the biggest crime ever?
I agree, it would, but I'm sure it is more of a coincidence, however it can still be interpreted as such
Asuka is a miracle of the universe, take that fucking back.
Most of Makina's "bitchiness" comes from terrible translation
That's a shame. My moonrune-reading skills aren't able to handle a VN, so I'm stuck with the English version. I still doubt the translation would make the scene where
Makina beats up Michiru any less rage-inducing though.
EVEN THEN, that this bitch's first response against someone with no self-confidence in themselves that is still afraid of being along is to be a cold bitch is enough to drive me to a blind rage.
That only makes her response all the more based. If it's causing people too immature for her to get wound up, then she's able to spot a major red flag in that guy ahead of time and save herself the trouble of potentially dating him.
Games, Idols, Anime.
Don't make a fool of otakus.
If we weren't there,
The Japan of today would be deeper in recession.
Come on dude
You're coming from the perspective that he isn't actually worthless. Whether he is or not isn't terribly relevant, the fact is that as an individual who believes he will have zero positive impact on her life, he still tries to get her to date him. That shows a truly despicable level of selfishness. A romantic partner is not a trivial choice, the vast majority of people enter a relationship with at least the very distant hope of spending all or most of their life with that person. Back to the point of assuming he is wrong about being worthless, the fact is there are human beings on this planet who are absolute scum. There are individuals who contribute no good works to society, who do nothing but drain resources and hurt others. If someone honestly believes they are worthless, it is far from unjust to take them at their word.
Ooh. Thank you!
So the line 'Don't make a fool of Otakus' is in the order of
Otakus (of) fool make don't.
Talking yourself down, unnecessary self-deprecation, pointing out your flaws -- these are things that aren't attractive to the opposite sex.
Biologically speaking, women have much more they have to invest into a relationship -- why would they choose a mate who is so inferior and lacking?
I see this self-sabotaging move done by guy's alot, and I truly don't understand it. It's not charming, it's not funny, it's simply makes people pity you -- and pity is not a good mating strategy.
I can't help but come to the conclusion that this move is duplicitous and skeevy, that subconsciously pointing out their faults will make the girl feel bad, thus make them sympathize care about them.
I don't want to use this word, but, only a beta too much in his own head, too self-centered, and possibly autistic would thinkg this unseemly angle would have any other result.
Please stop doing this shit. You're not Louie CK -- if you want to be self-deprecating learn comedic timing and have a bunch of success and money, or else you're literally just shooting yourself in the foot.
I see this self-sabotaging move done by guy's alot, and I truly don't understand it.
I assume it's basically just guys who have problems with insecurity become obsessed with those, and either don't even think about how they come off to others, or are consciously or not, deliberately presenting their worst qualities basically just because it hurts less if it comes from themself than if they hear it from others.
Fuck you man, I don't think there is a single person that is actually a complete no-hope scenario. Maybe their whole life they've been a drain and maybe they feel like shit everyday and treat others the same, but does that mean that nobody can ever learn to be a better person? That nobody is worth more than the mistakes they've made, and nobody can change?
I don't want to say that she should've accepted him, but rejecting someone with no self-confidence like that is just twisting the knife. He doesn't deserve to be accepted, but he, along with everyone else on the planet, deserves human kindness and decency.
Fuck you too man, you're way too pessemistic and basic about everything. You can't just crush a person's heart like it's nothing like that, not everyone does shit to "attract a mate". Not everyone is this perfect example of the alpha you envison, and that doesn't mean that their worthless. You need to get back in touch with some empathy dude, you shouldn't just assume the worst in everyone. The context got explained in later posts and maybe you know more about the source, but if you just made these random characters nobody knows anything about beyond this image ten you've assumed everything afwul about this guy without even knowing him.
I wish you all weren't so casual about people's feelings like this.
He has asked her to suffer for his own happiness. Kindness is not an appropriate response to such a request. If he wants a partner, and thinks he is worthless, a good person would act to change that before looking for one rather than asking someone to accept their shittiness as is.
I wish you all weren't so casual about people's feelings like this.
I think it's basically trying not to come off as presumptuous. Like, if you're harsh on yourself you'll assume that other people are as well, and you don't want people to think you don't understand your position.
Not everyone knows everything dude, especially a teenager. You can't just cast someone off as a worthless scumbag because they were scared, alone and desperate. Nobody is perfect and everyone is flawed differently. Also, if you read some of what else I wrote I said that she didn't need to accept him, but rejecting someone like this is way too harsh for someone already stuck in the idea that they're worthless. Try and imagine it from the other guy's view man.
Just because everyone likes to disregard everyone else's feelings doesn't mean you need to. I don't mean you need to hold your tounge but don't spit acid for no reason.
i'd forgotten how fucking ugly OP is
Growth is gradual, if you can't see that's the direction the story was going in from the very beginning with his teacher scolding him for writing about how "youth is a lie", you missed the whole point.
If I remember correctly the picture is a dream she's having while dying from an overdose.
You can't just expect someone to be nice to you just because you're unhappy. Being understanding is good, but if you visit harm on others they have every right to respond in kind. You do not have a right to kindness. Expecting others to take your situation into consideration even as you fail to do so for them is lunacy. There is exactly one person each of us is in control of, and that is ourselves. If you behave poorly towards others, you have no right whatsoever to complain when they respond in an appropriate manner. If your actions invite others to be cruel to you, you suffer it in silence and revise your behavior to avoid similar responses in the future.
I don't know about the context of the image, I was more replying to your butthurt about her response. and specifically this line
that this bitch's first response against someone with no self-confidence in themselves that is still afraid of being along is to be a cold bitch
Listen man, all this feeling garbage isn't going to get you anywhere and sure as hell isn't going to help you in the real world.
Did you not ever have a male figure in your life to teach you these things? Listen, both sexes are inherently less empathetic towards men. This is just reality. I don't know how you've become this way, but this resentment and vitriol you seem to have for those who aren't sympathetic to your feelings is misguided, and unhealthy.
The truth is no one gives a fuck about your feelings, you have to earn that with people for them to care about you, and being whiny in an unflattering way will only push people away.
You shouldn't expect any of this, but that doesn't mean nobody should do it. You should be nice to others, even if they haven't been nice to you. Even murderers get a last meal. And in this situation, this guy wasn't fucking stabbing her with a knife or anything, he was the one setting himself up to be hurt if anything. Responding with nothing but coldness is an uncalled for response.
Where you've gotten this idea that basic human kindness and deceny has no place in the real world is a mystery to me. Truth is, there are quite a few people in most people's life that DO care about how you feel. Even if that less empaty towards men thing is true, that doesn't mean you have to be less empathetic. I understand that not everyone is kind and sympathetic, and not everyone does everything with the best intentions, but I believe that you shouldn't respond with hatred in return. You need thick skin to survive but you can't steel plate your heart either or else you'll end up just as cold as the people who made you thicken your skin in the first place.
What I want to advocate here is basic human kindness and decency. I don't think hoping for kindness should be a wrong thing, and I know that's not the world we live in, but maybe if more people were kind to each other it'd be easier for everyone to open their hearts. I don't think we have to live in a cold world.
Says the fucking monster lord.
Source? Google just gives retarded meme links.
It's pretty stupid timing to use it though. It might make you go "Ohhh" for like half a second but the guy is dying and he's talking to some generic retard in a universe of retards where Andrew Fork can become a high ranking officer commanding hundreds of millions of people.
You'd think if you want to get your point across, you'd water it down for the retards but no one's gonna do anything for him, not even feed his dog.
I'll pass, thanks.
what the fuck are you talking about? the picture shows a guy admitting that he's too much of a loser for a cute girl like her, and recieving an honest response.
Your reaction to this was " that cold hearted bitch "
Your attempt at getting some moral high ground here by arguing this straw man:
this idea that basic human kindness and deceny has no place in the real world is a mystery to me
has me worried that you're either too diluted or too stupid to understand how your line of thinking is wrong.
there are quite a few people in most people's life that DO care about how you feel.
Yes, people in your life do, but they know you and you already have a relationship with them...
those people aren't the people you ask out on a date, or to be your friend, etc, If you ever want to make new friends, form new relationships you can't have these expectations
you think that someone who's insecure is entitled to a response that takes the persons feelings into consideration, and i'm saying that is incorrect way of thinking because people don't have to cater to you. that is misguided and selfish.
but I believe that you shouldn't respond with hatred in return.
sure, some people are nicer than others, but if someone gives you an honesty dose of reality, that does not make them a bad person, especially if they don't know your or have to care about how your relationship with them will be afterwards.
What I want to advocate here is basic human kindness and decency.
what you're advocating is that the world coddle you
I don't think hoping for kindness should be a wrong thing
it's not, but don't think you deserve it or that it is some right.
. I don't think we have to live in a cold world.
we don't you're just retarded
Because option 4 is overly sentimental tripe.
alternately, could be interpreted as "I'm an ass man".

the original sin in the war between humans and monsters came from humans
they're the ones following Ilias. Monsters prey on humans to survive because they have to.
And yet they still prey on the weak.

I mean just in how many bad endings does Luka get eaten?
this actually pretty motivational. that procrastination feel
The open empathy you speak of leads to emotional exhaustion, which is a breeding ground for cynical thinking and spiteful action. Get this through your head: the only thing other people inherently owe you, or each other for that matter, is a non-hostile attitude. You change that by your own actions, and trying to manipulate others' emotions for your own fulfillment is deserving of a hostile reaction.
you're able to give good advice, but you're not able to follow it yourself

I see this self-sabotaging move done by guy's alot
I can't articulate it 100% at the moment but basically it's a strategy not to get hurt. Insteade of being vulnerable, which means dealing with uncertainty in relationships, people choose to numb themselves by going all out in showcasing their flows.
Going for it even though there is a possibility of failure is courageous and attractive. Saying all your insecurities so that there will be no possibility of unknown is a weak move and unattracitve.
The growth of a person is his or hers own responsibility and noone else's. People are much more resiliete than you give them credit for, and it's very benificial to crash and burn in order to be reborn again than to be treated like a porceline wase your whole life when in reality people don't treat you like a real person.
not shower for weeks
I don't understant this one. The last panel confuses me
Yeah man all that matter I destroyed. What is he even worried about us taking if all life takes Surely he doesn't feel concern for nonliving matter, but at the same time he hates living matter. What a hypocrite.
I think it's a translation fuckup. "And we cannot exercise all of those rights" or "And we are not allowed all of those rights"
I really understand this one. I'd really like to know what it's like. To be a girl
in b4 some autist comes along and tells us how he currently hasn't taken a shower in weeks either
Hm. I say it depends, some people are bullied for unacceptable reasons and stupid shit like racism or religion, you can't tell them to change their skin color. In some case, even then they should not be bullied, it's certain some victims are victims because they lack things as individuals
One also needs water. Soil and sun won't do you any good without water.
This thread is pretty fucking depressing
That's arrogant and retarded.
not being religious makes you a left extremist with no moral compass
Topest kek. Read this and come back faggot
And great news : religious people are the ones who are the most prone to judge others.
We are not allowed the rights impeding on the rights of other people to be happy ? Yeah makes sense and it's the basic declaration of freedom and human rights, but it's so hard to make it work
Just confirmed my thought.
No, some are not allowed to be happy, their "Right".
Oh ok. Got it
Dear nail, just fyi, you just got hit right on the head.
I agree for the most part, but let's not forget that there were great civilizations which predate both the Torah and the New Testament.
You can have culture beyond religion you know.
Every time. Good argument though
I didn't shower for a semester once in high school. My friends were saints or something, I swear.
I think the point is that our consumption imposes opportunity costs on others. When I eat an apple, then that same apple cannot be eaten by anybody else. This may seem harmless when we only consider an apple, but it ultimately means that our existence bereaves potential creatures of their very existence. The land and resources on this planet can only support a certain amount of living organism. Those who do in fact live take away the possibility to live for all those who could live in their stead. If we assume that it is sinful to take a life, then all life is sinful.
people are arguing over this five hours later
This is what I get for trying to joke around, I guess.
You managed to not become a leper, that's quite something
Yes, it does, but since everyone is imposing opportunity costs on everyone else the worst you ever do is disadvantage someone who has disadvantaged you.

Not to mention, even nonliving matter can "Take". Unless he wants to destroy the universe to ensure nobody drinks water that could have been drank by other people and no free ions turn edible things inedible, he's fighting a very confused battle.
Yeah but the new atheists aren't offering anything positive. They simply hate those that have earned positions of respect through piety - and by extension, they hate the organizational structures that form around these people. Atheists want to tear down these structures without even giving a thought as to what can effectively replace them.
Most atheists seem to suffer from the tall poppy syndrome. Luckily, many of them eventually grow out of it when puberty is over. I also read books by Richard Bawwkins and thought that I was smarter than anybody around me. I turn red from shame when I remember those days, but I guess most of us did something embarrassing when we were young.
Most of them delve into politics and individual beliefs rather than the packaged system offered by religion.
hate those that earned positions of respect through piety
people who earned respect through indulging in a system
but somehow these systems formed around THEM instead of them being built up by the system
Madara did nothing wrong.
Why can't you accept religion is a relic of the past, and the product of poorness. Look at the map, atheism grows in developped countries, when the poorest countries on earth are the most religious (ghana, afghanistan, etc).
Even in the US, iirc, atheism had a bigger growth than the religions those last years. You don't need religion when you're educated, because good behaviors, and social beliefs can also be implemented through education without need of a magical wizard
And I forgot the map of course
why can't you understand that westerners are culturally christian, and wanting to get rid of a belief system that arguably helped shaped our society is misguided, anti-intellectual, narrow-minded. It'd be like me going to japan and criticizing Shintoism and protesting it, fuck off -- if you don't believe that's fine but don't be a patronizing cunt simply because you've done the easiest thing in the world.
Suppose three friends, Abel, Heroth and Indrim, are trapped somewhere with limited resources. It is obvious to them that the resources can only keep one person alive long enough to get rescued. Abel tells the other two that he has grown very fond of them. He also points out that, unlike Heroth, he doesn't have a family to take care of. Overall, Abel concludes, he values a world with Heroth and Indrim in it more than his own life. Abel then commits suicide.
This leaves Heroth and Indrim. Neither of the two is willing to die so they fight. Indrim is victorious and kills Heroth. Eventually, Indrim is rescued.
How would you evaluate the three people? To me, Abel was the most virtuous. Although the actions of Heroth and Indrim were understandable, it's fair to say that they were not as virtuous as Abel's. Indrim killed his friend to stay alive. This makes Indrim a sinner. His sin is understandable, but a sin nevertheless.
I don't think he wants to destroy or change anything. He just acknowledges a cruel inescapable reality of life.
Go cry into your dictionary, fags
What if I don't care about being liked? Am I shit inside?
What if I care about my looks but not about liking others? Am I self-centered?
14 years old shitty generalizations.
I think it needs to be said that the man who's speaking, actually stole money through cheating, which is the opposite of hard work.
Just like pic related, also posted a lot, comes from a cheating mob boss.
The implication being that things aren't so black and white, that what's good in theory isn't easily done and there may be some serious reasons for that.
But our society is already shaped, and even if we can argue for hours about the benefits of christianity on our civilization, because I can't see so many, I will just say that atheism doesn't destroy anything. It just makes religion obsolete. Culture won't change in an instant, and most cultural aspects will stay. Damn, even atheists celebrate christmas
which is a pagan party btw so I don't understand your trouble
Fat load of good it did him, he's dead. Virtue has no value if it doesn't end up with the world in a batter state. It's like attempting to stop a person
intent on murdering you through exclusively nonviolent means. It'll just leave you dead and him alive.

What are you talking about ?
Most of japan sees shinto as more fashionable than anything else.
The one thing I wish I could do is finish up my life as a guy, then replay it as a girl, and then somehow compare the experiences. I get the feeling that the girl playthrough would be incredibly shit.

pls sauce? can't find anything
this is assuming far too much based on not enough information
if religious or spiritual tendencies decline in a population it is typically because of a simple surge in secular culture which is especially the case for somewhere like the US
the lifestyle of the average person living in a decently populated area has simply become so fast paced and complex that spiritualism falls by the wayside
but increased secularity is not in at all a product of increased wealth
in fact it only seems to reason that people who have little money in such a secular society would only covet money and possesions even more
implying the poor ever really accept their status, regardless of religious beliefs
And rightfully so, being poor is shit.
taking freud seriously
I fear that the rise of atheism will spread moral egoism. Ethics require us to go beyond a personal point of view to the standpoint of an impartial spectator. Looking at things ethically is a way of transcending our inward-looking concerns and identifying ourselves with the most objective point of view possible - with, as Sidgwick put it, "the point of view of the universe." The masses need an easy to understand and intuitive illustration of this. Telling them that there truly is a god who serves as the supreme impartial spectator of the universe is the most straightforward way to make them behave like they should.
But he gave us the best advice anyone could ever give.
Yet Africa is the most religious continent on earth and also the poorest. Marx said a lot of bullshit, but he was right about the opium of the people. Hell catholicism always saw wealth as evil and suffering of the poor a stairway to heaven. You can't make it more obvious
lie to them to get a general truth across
Or we could tell them the truth, and they could accept it just as easily as they accept the lie. They won't comprehend it, but they will parrot it. But they wouldn't comprehend the entirety of the religion either.
THOSE are the four angels
Oh if only she knew
It's not that simple. You need people to understand, as you said, why they should behave like this, and ethics is a good solution. Telling them to do it because God says so is dangerous because they have no reasoning of it and you will need to keep the ideology intact, and thus needing to deal with the dissident people. History shows it for every dogmatic religion or ideology
can you fucks just go back to /his/
Is he the modern Buddha?
that's the problem
but correlation does not imply causation
places that are poor are usually poor for many reasons
even if a place like Africa somehow managed to switch to a completely non-religious culture they wouldn't all of a sudden become rich
they simply have issues that go far beyond being religious
She wasn't just a slut, she was a slut in hell city, where everyone wants to fuck up your day.
Of course you're right. But you have to agree that religion has always the goal to ease the pain of the poor and maintain the social order. I gave the exemple of catholicism because it's the classical one for western countries, but it's also very true in hindouism with the cast system.
Africa's other major problem is the tribalism, as long as they don't solve this problem they will go nowhere
Ahaha, I need a drink now.
So you don't admire people who sacrifice their lives for the sake of others?
Or let me put it another way: what do you think of the Soma addicts in Huxley's Brave New World who say "was and will make me ill, I take a gramme and only am"? Do you respect people who aren't concerned about the future? Do you think that the behavior of the grasshopper in the tale of the Ant and the Grasshopper is commendable? I don't think so. Most of us believe that it's prudent to make certain sacrifices in order to benefit our future-selves. However, our future-selves are technically not us. After a few years, not a single atom in our body remained the same and our state of consciousness drastically changed. So if we think that sacrifices for our future-selves, whose existence we value due to the knowledge we have about ourselves, are both prudent and virtuous, then this implies that sacrifices for others who we know enough about to value highly are also prudent and virtuous.
The sad thing is that I read a "how to be happy" article and one of the many points was that. You have to find someone you're happy to tell yourself "at least I'm not that cunt"
fuck, that's true for me
he believes in nonlinear consciousness
Furthermore, the man who sacrificed himself left the world no benefit. Be concerned about the future, but be concerned in a way with actual benefit. Fight off your muggers, shoot the man running at you with a knife, keep the wealth you amassed and pass it down to your offspring rather than giving it all away to various unimportant charities.
I don't admire people who sacrifice their own lives to be virtuous without taking into account the virtue of those they are sacrificing for. Don't trade a saint for a murderer, essentially.
When people start to believe that all opinions are equal, that their intuition is as good as anybody else's, they become highly susceptible to nonsense. Few impressed by the idea of a hypothetical god-like observer. If, on the other hand, you teach them right from the cradle that there truly is such a being, most will appreciate that their petty selfish concerns are nothing compared to its judgements. Theism is very popular. The ideal observer theory is not.
all opinions are equal
What kind of faggot shit is that? Nobody believes that. Nobody gives the kid insisting that 2+2=5 a pat on the back and a "You're an individual!" pin, they give the person an F and make them do more homework. Disbelief in a god does not mean you believe in a complete lack of an objective reality.
This isn't thoughtful, this is dumb. He's implying there's only one way to view the world as either a man or a woman which is completely stupid.
The experiences are going to be different. Sure he's simplified it and narrowed the field of options way down, but he's not completely wrong.
the man who sacrificed himself left the world no benefit.
He did leave two lifes intact and one of the people who he spared had a family to take care of.
keep the wealth you amassed and pass it down to your offspring rather than giving it all away to various unimportant charities.
We can agree on not supporting charities, but inheritance is one of the great injustices in this world. Many people these days understand that political power should not be inherited. Being the son of a good king does not imply that you will be a good king as well, or that there isn't somebody more qualified for that position than you are. We understand this simple truth when it comes to political power, so why shouldn't the same be true for economic power? Capitalism would resemble an actual meritocracy a lot more if we got rid of all heirship.

good thing none you can see my face. you have to judge me by my words only.
Post more motivationals. I need it.
This whole thread
This is true with regard to aspects of the natural world which can easily and reliably tested. When it comes to morality, I hazard the guess that irrealism is more popular than cognitivism. At least that's the impression I get from talking to people.
Will this meme never end?
It's really the ultimate question. All things considered, nothing is more relevant than that. Everything else is pointless
Can't beat the power of the d, m7
he left two lives
One of which would have to kill the other, with no guarantee that person with a family would come out on top. For MAXIMUM VIRTUE, he would have wanted to kill the guy unwilling to die that didn't have a family and then himself.
That makes it pointless to really go above and beyond. Why amass wealth if you can't make life a little better for your children? Climbing the status ladder is a relay race, not a 100m sprint. Sure, some people get to the top in a single generation, but there is value in successive generations continuing to climb. If nothing more than as a goal. You might have an argument with multi-billion fortunes (although in an ideal world this would be solved by LARGE amounts of children splitting the inheritance, because at that point you have every reason to breed harder and faster than the most lecherous monarch), but other than that you've robbed the economic climb of a very important purpose. Very few geniuses are born, but the steady climb of the above average is enabled with inheritance.
take on the entire world
for my waifu
You're pretty selfish yourself, if you haven't realized.
You might want to check your memeology, D-Man isn't Freud.
Would you be saying any of that if you first lived out your life as a girl? Remember "Half the World"
You only perforce that side of it as a man.
I'm 87% sure you're full of shit
There are busy bodies and offense truffle pigs who shriek "discrimination" (often followed by a smattering of other buzzwords) whenever a woman or a member of an ethnic minority is slightly disadvantaged. They demand restitution and quotas. Yet, the most disadvantaged people of every demographic, namely the ugly, are still not getting anything to offset their congenital disadvantage.
But he got BTFO hard
For MAXIMUM VIRTUE, he would have wanted to kill the guy unwilling to die that didn't have a family and then himself.
Why amass wealth if you can't make life a little better for your children?
Well, there are hard-working people who have no desire to procreate. Social status and old-age provisions are possible incentives.
Sure, some people get to the top in a single generation, but there is value in successive generations continuing to climb.
It would be more fair if everybody started climbing from the same height.
Very few geniuses are born, but the steady climb of the above average is enabled with inheritance.
Why do we need it? We could instead improve society as a whole by providing more opportunities that enable ambitious and talented young people to climb faster than the those in the previous generation.
This one is profound.
Yet to find another organism that DOESN'T do this. Survival of the fittest is a thing for a reason
Spolier: its fucking nothing. Unless your world is 100% social interaction, there is really little difference between being a man and a women in terms of experience.
Any intelligent person knows this is transient as all fuck.
old age provisions
I'm gonna need that 100 million just in case what, I need to buy myself several new entire human bodies?
it would be more fair
Not to the parents who you would actually have to somehow prevent spending any money on their children beyond some allotted number. Otherwise they could just pass down inheritance through assets. Unless you want someone to step in and seize everything owned by the child upon the parents death. That'll level the playing field alright. Not to mention the problem that if the child has some expensive medical disorder or another the parent would actually have to let them die because "Some other parents might not have been able to pay for it". Ultimately, nothing is fair and you had better believe I want humans with my genetic material doing better than others without my genetic material, because I am a biological being with an instinct to do so.
why do we need it
Because I would stop at a bachelors if I knew none of the excess money I made would make any difference to anyone down the line. A person can live relatively luxuriously with smart budgeting and a 50k income, with their needs taken care of for the rest of their life. But I want to die with more money than I came in with, so I can ensure a better future for my children and ONLY my children. I happen to like leaving a legacy that is more stable than just "Well the kid has the genes to be smart, that's for sure".
Apparently the female orgasm is very different, less explosive and brutal. You're missing. I'm missing
explosive and brutal
I've never had a brutal orgasm.
being nice is being submissive
Being nice is also being strict when needed. Nice isn't just generosity.
Oh, and just alerting you, I'm off to indulge in sleep. Good chat.
It was figurative. The male orgasm is very short. You burst your semen out and go to sleep
Yes. Questions like "at what point would it have been better to simply die?"
And women also don't know the pleasures of having a dick.
Also your missing out the extremely painful 'giving birth' bit. I feel like people who actually want to be a girl haven't spent much time with them. There's as callous and shallow as the rest of us
your missing out the extremely painful 'giving birth' bit
What if I don't have children. And I know they're not different psychologically, even though some things are different such as sensitivity. It's just physical for me. I'd like to know what it's like
France invades washington
It was about time
Sauce on this one?
Don't forget you get mad cow disease monthly.
Well that's just curiosity and escapism then.
just curiosity and escapism then
Yeah pretty much
There're many physical and psychological differences, but the most important difference is social: social interaction is completely different. I really wonder how it must be to put a dress and actually look cute in it, to being hitted on, etc...
In any event, there are hard-working people right now who don't want to have any children. Some simply have a passion for their work, others may like to brag about their fortune. Whatever the reason, we don't have to worry about rampant apathy.
Even those who only work for the sake of their children have an incentive to do so in a society without inheritance. By working harder, they can benefit society as a whole, thus improving the situation of all children including their own.
I'm gonna need that 100 million just in case
I don't think anybody truly earns such large amounts of money. They're able to accumulate it precisely because the system is rigged.
By the way, what's wrong with people only working for the things they need? I'm not a fan of extremely wasteful lifestyles.
Not to the parents who you would actually have to somehow prevent spending any money on their children beyond some allotted number. Otherwise they could just pass down inheritance through assets.
This is an argument of implementation, not an argument of merit. I agree that it's difficult to implement such a policy, but that doesn't actually have relevance to the main subject of banning inheritence because of its inherent injustice.
I want humans with my genetic material doing better than others without my genetic material, because I am a biological being with an instinct to do so.
And most kings presumably want their children to succeed them, but that didn't stop people from putting an end to this practice. Just because you personally want something doesn't mean that others have to accept its undue consequences.

You'd be surprised, past 30 its really the other way round.
Is the English translations of these fucked or is Japanese itself such a vague and imprecise language?
Or are we reading into these things that were written with 15 year olds in mind too deeply?
That's true, and I hope things go like you're saying, but I don't think I should get my hopes up.
What people should know is that this is from an NTR manga and the character talking here later cheats on her husband.
A bit context?
This is muvluv right? I thought muvluv is about fighting alien hordes with some infighting, conspiracies, etc?
I think people look at those quotes and think "this is what the author wants us to think". When it actuality he's giving flawed viewpoints to characters which are later revealed to be bad people.
Muv Luv the day after
There is a translation patch out.
Forgot to mention all Bongs were wiped out by super tsunami since they were holed up in their island.

I'm not familiar with this.
Can you fight the monsters? Can you gain there trust then destroy them?
atheism doesn't destroy anything. It just makes religion obsolete
mainland europe becomes full of atheists
suddenly they're welcoming invaders in by the millions
Atheism quickly gives way to subversive ideology, whether it's Equality-worship, Dictator-worship or some other kind doesn't really matter. In formerly Christian countries, atheism leads to progressivism then Islam. Far from 'making religion obsolete', it often leads to fundamentalism.
Can you fight the monsters?
Can you gain there trust then destroy them?

That's a nice way of summarising how democracy breaks down.

I know in the sequel you can collect them like pokemon
What a load of bullshit. And it's kinda ironic you talk about refugees because it's precisely their religion which is the main problem. If they were less obtuse and religious we, in Europe, would have less trouble to deal with them.
Either way, thanks to that and the crysis, we will probably witness (we already do in fact) a rise of far right nationalisms who will want to deal with those filthy invaders. I just hope we won't get our hands dirty like last time.
Also, those refugees come to us because the US fucked up middle east with their bullshit Irak war. Thank you, sincerely.
Fafner's 'how will you bless the world?'
Although the world looks like this with more than half the population nommed by immortal mind reading ayys that assimilate you down to the very soul and diluted inside their infinite hivemind even through the radio.
It's that he should improve and get good features to advertise, I think. Trying to sell someone a shitty product when you could do better is a type of rude, to go with her analogy.

Truly based ending
And it's kinda ironic you talk about refugees because it's precisely their religion which is the main problem.
No it isn't. We all know that Muslims support the rape and murder of anyone who isn't in their club, and modern Christian Europe hadn't have a problem with that for a good century. Wanna know why? Because they didn't casually let Muslims invade them.
Now a certain religion (read: ideology) is letting Muslims into Europe en masse, and it's only the nationalistic countries proud of their Christian heritage who have the sense to lock up their borders. Muslims aren't a problem unless you let them invade you.
If they were less obtuse and religious we, in Europe, would have less trouble to deal with them.
If Europe wasn't embarrassed about its identity then you'd have no trouble to deal with, because they wouldn't have been let in.
Either way, thanks to that and the crysis, we will probably witness (we already do in fact) a rise of far right nationalisms who will want to deal with those filthy invaders.
Can't get a nationalist unless you get someone proud of their country's heritage.
I just hope we won't get our hands dirty like last time.
Too late for at least France, Belgium, U.K., Sweden.
Also, those refugees come to us because the US fucked up middle east with their bullshit Irak war.
Idiot. Those 'refugees' have been historically trying to invade northward into Europe for most of recorded history, and they only stopped for a while near the start of the 20th century because their empire got their asses completely handed to them in a war.
Rin dialoges were the best.
Kyo-kun a best
This is true. There's no shit like sacrificing yourself for others, in reality you just pursue your own peace of mind.
It went down the WEWUZ lane pretty fast.

lol why would they even do that there's like a dozen people living there.
I have never seen more condensed pretentious philosophical bullshit than in this thread
Pointing out your flaws sounds nicely upfront to me. You'll have to deal with that shit whether it's advertised or not, so at least you find out fast if there are any dealbreakers.
YOU ARE NOT LIVING YOUR LIFE CORRECTLY
Was the translation for this game ever finished? Or is this still a partial patch?
I thought the translator had retired
I'd laugh if it wasn't so sad. Well let's see.
First those refugees are not "welcomed" as you seem to think. Sure Germany tried to be exemplary and took in more than one million but they soon realized their mistake and don't do it anymore. A lot of countries have now closed their borders and they're mostly contained in the border countries (Italy and Greece). There's now an accord with Turkey to give them money so they don't let them go as they will towards Greece.
Also France is a bad exemple because there are very few refugees going there. Most want to go to Germany or UK.
Secondly, I know it may seem strange to you, but those people are not invaders as you claim it as a proud defenser of the Christianity, they, for most, flee one the bloodiest modern conflict of those last decades. Conflict, I'll say it again, where the US are one of the first responsible of the chain of events which lead to this.
Thirdly, the tensions are growing and those people will be probably expulsed for the most part, and if it doesn't get better in the next years, they will get the stick. Either from the traditional governments trying to react, or more reactionnary new parties.
I don't like muslims, I find them backwards, too dogmatic and contradictory to the western values. BUT most of them flee war. Europe already saw a similar wave of immigration in the previous century, with a lot of eastern europeans going to the west. They were not seen very well, racism was frequent, but with the time it became better.
Now is different I agree, the culture gap is wider and it's more complicated. But we can still try to let some of them in to see what's going to happen.
What you describe is funny because it's typically a reaction of fear and weakness, and has nothing to do with atheism or anything. They're a weak minority, if they don't behave they will suffer
I'll add that the US should give us money since they're pretty much responsible for this. That would be natural
What the fuck are you talking about?
Also UK don't take refugees. The muslim population they have the most problems with are the pakis, because they have a tradition of taking old dominions people as other ex colonial powers. But they failed their integration, told themselves it was ok to let them be this way and let them behave as if they were at home. More than 1400 british girls raped and the police covered it. Shameful, but it has nothing to with atheism. We talk about UK after all
i think the best way to handle this kind of immigration is to make an agreement that they have no freedom of movement and then have the government pretty much place them far apart from each other so you dont have these insular communities and they are forced to integrate.
I think irrealism is a normal logical move in the context of mass education and modern science. Moral "facts" just don't match up to higher standards for facts about the world. But that's different from them saying murderers should all go free. The new challenge is encouraging a moral culture when you can't use the old shtick.
Yeah. Communitarianism is the real danger. You need to have infrastructures to deal with them, or they will rely on their diaspora as a way to live, for jobs, for relationships, cutting themselves from society.
Asians do this but don't cause problems because they only think about the business, they're like this. Muslims are more problematic because their religion shapes their way of life. And even more than before, with the rise of radicalism. Shit most women didn't wear fabric on their hair before the 90s. Crazy when you think about it.
If anything, removing inheritance makes for a large motivation to improve society, since you can't solely focus on your offspring getting money anymore. It would be interesting to see how they re-dedicated their efforts.
That's all from FSN?
Shirou is truly autistic. Jesus
The writing in KS was such a mess, I'm actually surprised how Rin's route was at least okay.
how tall is she jesus christ
The writing in KS was such a mess,
my expectations were rock bottom so i didnt mind
But your brain as a girl would be different than your male brain. What a woman might think of as a perfect life a man might consider a terrible one.
implying there's a purpose in this world filled with pain and suffering and degeneracy
implying summoning poor souls in this world is a purpose
If they were less obtuse and religious we, in Europe, would have less trouble to deal with them.
We don't have a problem dealing with them at all. You're just one of the people who, for whatever reasons, don't look at statistics.
If fact, people like you cause a lot more overall damage to their respective countries than any muslim ever could. I'm absolutely livid when I think about all the labor and resources wasted just because of baseless hysteria.
he buys into the PMS meme
If every woman on the planet actually became as unstable as fiction tries to imply for several days in a row once a month for ~30 years of their life, women really wouldn't be able to function as heads of state or other important leaders.
But they can't.
...Oh, I get it now.
Because self-confidence is the thing you can only achieve facing the reality, and not fleeing to "safe space" bullshit.
Thats from Marx
It's more like a combination being nice only because you want something in return so you end up being passive aggressive, and being a push over
a truly nice person will do something nice just because it's a nice thing to do, but won't sulk or get pissy if particularly people don't act the way they want.
93% of these are 'Life is meaningless/ Life is boring/ Life sucks shit'
I really wish the 'edgy teenage boys with a Nietzsche fetish' demographic wasn't so piss-easy to sell to.
But adult pussies are also acidic, I really don't see what difference being a child makes.
Only communists and /r/atheism think religion is the end of the world
Holy shit, what the fuck is this?
Looks like mediocre teen fiction to me
That's not even mediocre, that's just terrible.
Seems pretty par for the course m8, and I read a lot of mediocre teen fiction when I was, y'no, a teen
The reason you're all depressed is because you never stop thinking about girls.
Just goes to show how accepting of virtually everything Shirou is.
i'd like to note that i'm not depressed and i think about many other facets of fantasy wish fulfillment besides qt3.14s
Source,google gave nothing
My life sucks because I don't do anything? No! It sucks because life is meaningless! I'm such a nihilist!
This is something I think about sometimes. It's less about experiencing life as a woman in particular, though... the bigger issue is that I'll only ever experience life as a human caucasian male born in the 1980s because that's the hand I was dealt by nature.
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to exist and don't resent what I am in any way. I'm thrilled that I might have a chance at living a long, healthy life as a white dude. That said, I realize that there are more points and perspectives than I can even count that I'm prevented from ever truly feeling and understanding. The best I can do is use my fallacy-ridden, biased imagination to try to put myself in the shoes of others. The most I'll ever have is a picture of world as it's viewed through one of billions of lenses.
I consider myself agnostic but all of this makes me hopeful that reincarnation is a thing.
This is both the best and worst thread I've seen on Sup Forums ever since I started browsing here.
But that's not an opinion, that's factually wrong. It's different.
No, I'm depressed because I'm intermittently filled with self-loathing over my repeated failures as a person, continued disappointment of people who care about me, and failure to meaningfully improve myself.
Escapist fantasies of unconditional love from cute anime girls, though arguably a factor in this vicious cycle, are ultimately a symptom, not a cause.
I just want some love, anon.
I don't think anybody truly earns such a large amount of money
Explain single generation billionaires. Not to mention genuine geniuses like Einstein, I dare say he was worth billions.
by working, they can improve the situation of society as a whole
Anarcho-communists think the same thing when they propose either complete wage parity or the lack of all wages. "Well some people will work just to work" isn't a good enough excuse. There's very little reason to really excel when all you have to support is yourself.
Many would argue getting paid more is injustice in and of itself. Not to mention what you've proposed is a system where the state (or whatever corruptible, human organization oversees the confiscation and heavily taxed distribution of dead people's wealth) essentially has access to all the funds of their country, ensuring they have essentially ultimate power. You want to talk about injustice, let's talk about that.
and presumably kings wanted their sons to inheret the throne
Very few kings became kings in a single generation. Not to mention, inheritance of power isn't such an awful idea in a theoretical system, because the offspring of rulers are in the best position to learn how to rule themselves. Invariably, the imperfections of humanity fucked this up, but you cannot say "This doesn't make any sense". Furthermore, I don't think even if this was implemented it would last. I don't think people like me are in the minority at all, people want to pass down wealth and elevate people they know and like more than anybody else. Ultimately, your proposition is in itself hypocrisy. Presumably the earner of the money can spend it any way they want, except on people they enjoy. What a worthless system. This isn't even good on paper.
I'm not a fan of extremely wasteful lifestyles
Yes, the decadence of the bourgeoise is shameful comrade, all we need is enough to support ourselves. Fuck people who DO want luxury and are willing to work for it. If you think people who have earned their money should be able to spend it how they desire, this statement is hypocrisy. If you don't, why are you putting forth a system where people earn money at all, you should instead propose a system where we all work for the "greater good" with 0 rewards besides back pats like so many starry-eyed idealists.
I'll tell you how, they will follow my theoretical example and get an easy, cushy job capable of supporting a normal lifestyle. People are loath to do more than they need to unless it benefits them in the long run. A country of collective-slaving idealists just doesn't exist, humans are selfish before anything else. We literally cannot be any other way.
Can I ask you something? You're a Christian, yeah?
Well, whadaya got the cross for, in your apartment?
It's a form of meditation.
I contemplate the moment in the garden; the idea of allowing your own crucifixion.
And I think the disdain you are showing me is attractive, let's fuck.
ITT: Fat weeaboos try to sound philosophical and discuss philosophy and fix each other's degenerative lives.
I've thoroughly enjoyed reading all these replies and comments
Most of these people aren't trying to fix any one person. They are just stating wide opinions about society as a whole. This isn't /r9k/ you know, nobody is hug boxing the sad sack.
There's no piece of mind to be had if you give your life for someone else's sake.
Also I don't see how "achieving piece of mind by doing a good deed" somehow invalidates the deed's worth. Between piece of mind and money, a lot of people will choose the latter.
You could argue the money achieves peace of mind itself.
they'll be benefitting EVERYBODY, not just their own
But they only know and like their own. Why wouldn't they want to elevate their own more? You will never meet 99.9% of the people siphoning off your money, and I dares any you wouldn't like a lot of them.
Not to mention the very act of working for wealth that you don't ultimately own is just slaving on a economic treadmill. Might as well stop paying people altogether and hand all power to the state, the outcome is the exact same.
It's easy to do good when people give you billions of dollars for nothing. Imagine what things would be like if they spent that money on something worthwhile instead of golden Jesus statues.
We're all in the same boat here to some extent, some more than others. I don't really think it's about trying to sound philosophical.
I haven't posted in this thread earlier, but for me it's simple. I'm not depressed by any means, but I also acknowledge the fact that life in the grand scheme of things is really pointless, regardless of who you are, as the universe will cease to exist anyway and everything anyone has ever done will be forgotten.
I'm not depressed. I enjoy life for the most part. I just see the world for what it is.
that life in the grand scheme of things is really pointless
Dame da. ZEN ZEN DAME DA!
I refuse to accept life is pointless and has no meaning.
You can accept it and still function you know.
Literally no one will remember you in a hundred years, doesn't really matter
