(1/2) I believe in Omnicidism (A similar, but distinct idea is Efilism which is against creating any life, but it can lead to Omnicidism which is why I have mentioned it) which is a moral philosophy where the most ethical course of action is the instant and painless annihilation of all life in the universe with no chance of it coming back. Of course, this is impossible for now but I am arguing it as a thought experiment, not as a pragmatic idea.
I will introduce why I believe in this by starting off with my definition of suffering. Suffering is any negative experience experienced by a sentient being. It is bad because it is everything that is bad. Suffering is good only when it prevents future suffering. Otherwise, nobody enjoys suffering because it is not suffering if it is enjoyed.
Adding onto this point, I would like to introduce Negative Utilitarianism. In this ideology, not creating suffering is valued above creating happiness/pleasure. Hard Negative Utilitarianism is a concept where not creating suffering is the only thing that matters. This relates because omnicidism is against all procreation because all procreation creates suffering. The fact that most people report being happy is irrelevant because we only need to focus on not creating suffering. You are not unethical if you do not give resources to the homeless, but you are if you decide to take resources away from them. Taking someone's life is unethical, but not creating life is not unethical. The logical conclusion of this is to prevent all life from being born, and to prevent all life from being born you must kill all life so that it does not reproduce.
On that note, you may be thinking "According to your philosophy, wouldn't murder be ethical? Shouldn't everyone kill themselves then?" to which I say no to both. Murder is unethical because it inflicts grief-related suffering on those who care about the person who was murdered. Suicide also follows, being a net negative. However, this can lead to unfortunate implications to those unloved. For example, if we kill the homeless, then people would be more stressed about becoming homeless.
Another argument is that procreation is gambling with someone's life without their consent. If you forced someone to go into a room where they would have a 90% chance of winning a large sum of money but 10% chance of getting cancer, most people would be understandably upset at you gambling with their life like that. Why would life be any different? When you give life to someone, you're risking an innocent person developing suicidal depression, being kidnapped and tortured, getting an incurable disease and much more. They may still think that their life was worth living, but why would that make it okay to let someone else suffer as much as they did?
Non-existent people cannot miss or want pleasure. By bringing someone into existence, they become a slave to their instincts, fears, and desires. Wanting to live does not mean life is good, much like wanting to drink does not mean alcoholism is good.
My final argument is that life is generally a negative sum game. It may not look like it for humans, but it is very probable that most animals suffer more in their life than not. If you want a demonstration of this, compare the suffering of an animal being eaten to the pleasure an animal gets from eating it. The suffering is much greater. Not only this, but imagine being a prey animal. Mortal terror is a very common occurrence for these.
>>38967 Well that's Omnicidism but it still holds true for everybody who doesn't follow that and most people do not. Even for Omicidism follows it still sounds like an excuse.
You are whining, the hold ideology is whining how can it not be? You offer a solution to a problem only you and people like you have because off the way your own personal lives have gone yet you try to apply it to everyone and everything regardless of how happy they are with their own lives. You are babies throwing a tantrum over a slide that hurt you because you didn't use it right and then demanding it be removed and ruining everybody else's fun.
It's a dumb counter point. So you would advocate a billionaire living the time of his life should never be born or live at all because he stubs his toe or has a bad day once? It's about balance, you can't reasonably say that everybody should die because of the fact that suffering exists when it gets counter balanced by numerous other things. If it's not counter balanced then maybe that individual should die, and that is when people kill themselves.
No you can't, you are advocating removing life, how can that be altruistic or improve anything?
>>38790 >The territories need names and output numbers, if I understand it correctly. They need a name - for consistency, the most populous city within them -, an output number - it's used for random determination so any method will do - an economic value/unit output and possibly an assigned continent, but I have not yet thought of how continents would be used. It also needs connections with other territories and each connection needs a width.
>>38784 As the map is shared in-board as a .png pieces might make things needlessly complicated. If it's right in the middle of a territory you can just wipe it away and paste a new one, but what if it's partially over a border? For simplicity I'd use splotches.
The protocol for a player's turn is the following phases: 0) Verify if neighboring independent powers can launch any offensive and calculate them if possible.
1) Issue attack orders, roll the dice and calculate results (everyone has the spreadsheet on hand). There are two orders available, "Attack" (unit moves into the territory if successful during Maneuver phase) and "Support Attack" (unit stays where it is regardless of Maneuver but otherwise contributes normally to calculation).
Orders must be submitted as: [Attacking province] [Number of units] [Order type] -> [Attacked province] Ex: São Paulo 3 Support Attack -> Buenos Aires Nuuk 1 Attack -> Reykjavik
>>38810 >0) Verify if neighboring independent powers can launch any offensive and calculate them if possible. How the player picks whom the independent attacks? What prevents a player using the independent to weaken a rival? Well, among us, known posters I assume we could check which is the most feasible avenue of attack for the independent territory, without being (too) partial about it. >everyone has the spreadsheet on hand So we need to make a spreadsheet as well. >Support Attack I guess this order has a prerequisite: an Attack has to go against a neighbouring province they can join in. >The economic output necessary for production must come from territories with a continuous connection through friendly territories to the final territory What if there are several patches of land on the hand of a player? Do everyone has a capital, and only those areas count, which are connected to that? >economic output Is this simply a number which tells us how much unit can be produced on a territory? They just simply add up? Or there's a formula to that? >Transit Rights So this is kind of a diplomacy? Also this is basically for moving units (from the territory they were produced, or stationed)?
>>38970 i actually meant 'elevated' in a bad sense (or rather its just turned out to be bad, as a whole), also i meant elevated solely by technology (usually as a side effect because theres also misuse of tech)
elevated technically, they life actually didn't improve
its always funny to look at barbarians stuck in 12th century but with modern trains or planes
it was probably better for everyone before it happened, and i think theres no status-quo here, the BS we have now will likely go away (better if before the date, this is why we need drumpf)
style change -> people leave (because they don't like it) -> quality drops (because people leave)
i personally stop visiting websites when they try to be more "epic and cool" (not boards, but from boards i can remeber ylilauta that sort of changed its design always to become more and more finnish reddit as the result everyone left their /int/ it is now a ghost town lol
>>38947 What exactly has changed and why is it bad? To this date Kohlchan looks much more like Krautchan than this board for instance. There are some differences due to LynxChan and even new original features, but that's natural.
>>38772 I agree they ain't really aesthetic from the outside. I didn't see the inside to judge that. With a better eye for this I'm sure someone could make a pleasant looking crib out of those domes. The chief problem that it's concrete and that makes its mark on the looks. Simply giving that a paintjob will result that tacky shit. Maybe with some additional wooden structure could give it a different look, or go into the other direction and create a sci-fi Mars habitat with modernizing as much as possible.
The previous thread is at 499 posts, on the brink of autosage. So I open up a new one, because I have a thing to discuss as well with Bernd. But first thing first.
Finally I wanna watch these in their entirety, a series of Japanese films from the 70s The Yakuza Papers or Battles Without Honor And Humanity - which is also the title of the very first one. I think the first five (what I'm planning on consuming) cover one full story, based on an OG yak's memoirs, published in a newspaper first. Then they made another three in the 70s, all standalone, and three more, two of them in this millennia. They are in a certain subgenre of yakuza movies, which were fresh breeze at that time with their more realistic narrative and breakup with the "honorable samurai" romanticism of the previous era. They are also filmed in a documentary style, with handheld shaky cameras, and sometimes they even timestamp certain events as the movie plays - as far as I can tell based on the first one which I seen (but will rewatch).
Sooo. NED. I was funny, but it was rather gay and flatulent. Jokes ranged from the banal to the quite original. Novel take on the person of Ned Kelly, an outlaw, who counts as a folk hero of our neighbour, Australia.
Next month, The Lighthouse, probably the 2019 version.
>>38884 I think nukes are overrated. Nations are not going to want to use them in limited warfare which is what most wars are going to most likely look like between major powers now. But yes, I don't think Germany has much reason even for limited warfare with Russia. But Rheinmetal doesn't just sell to Germany, they have gotten a leg up on the competition again and so most next generation western tanks are probably going to end up with their 130mm or a licensed built version. Given the state of things it's not impossible that a Turkey, Arab state or America with a 130mm next generation tank will not come across a T14 somewhere in the future.
>>38888 >But Rheinmetal doesn't just sell to Germany, they have gotten a leg up on the competition again and so most next generation western tanks are probably going to end up with their 130mm or a licensed built version. You're right I haven't thought about the other side. Not just Armata can be sold.
>>38955 Noice. Here's the whole book, it seems the English translation and the original Latin is written in parallel. What he wrote about the eating habits coincides our discussion about grains. However Caesar is only one source, he came in contact with only those who were on his borders, he had limited insight into the everyday life of the hinterlands. I'm curious what archaeology says about it. Ancient Germanics weren't farmers mostly?
Policja na imprezie ojca Tadeusza Rydzyka. "Wykonywali służbowe obowiązki"
Rząd nie widzi nic nadzwyczajnego w zaangażowaniu policji i orkiestry reprezentacyjnej Marynarki Wojennej w obchody 28. urodzin Radia Maryja. Z informacji przekazanych przez MSWiA i MON, wynika, że policja pojawiła się tam służbowo, a orkiestra grała w ramach wykonywania "statutowych zadań”.

Śmierć podczas policyjnej interwencji
Po godz.19 dyżurny siedleckiej komendy Policji otrzymał z WCPR informację o agresywnie zachowującym się mężczyźnie na jednej z posesji w Siedlcach. Interwencję zgłaszała matka mężczyzny. Policjanci, którzy pojechali na miejsce zastali agresywnego mężczyznę. Nie reagował on na żadne polecenia wydawane przez policjantów. Jeden z funkcjonariuszy został przez mężczyznę uderzony pięścią w twarz. Policjanci wobec mężczyzny użyli środków przymusu bezpośredniego w postaci gazu. 34-latkowi założono kajdanki. W pewnym momencie mężczyzna zaczął słabnąć i tracić przytomność. Funkcjonariusze natychmiast zdjęli mężczyźnie kajdanki i zaczęli udzielać pierwszej pomocy. Wezwali też na miejsce karetkę pogotowia. Niestety mężczyzna zmarł. Pomocy medycznej wymagali także interweniujący policjanci.

>>38868 I read about that, maybe it's in the article of Britball about Libya in Kohlzine. Large number of people has Turkic heritage there. And there weren't Vandals there ofc, just in the western Mediterranean. >We'e like jews You guys might wanna move from Germany.
How about the Ladins in South Tyrol, Italy? They have national epic (Kingdom of Fanes) and everything, including fine athletes of winter sports. They are also the spurdos of the Latins. http://www.ilregnodeifanes.it/inglese/intro.htm >This site is devoted to the ancient legend and to its tentative interpretation.
>>38869 The title is: This is the Mongol. Based Fedoraguy just throwing mini napalm bombs with his firesteel instead of sparks. I enjoyed the song, the visuals are a bit kitch, those dancers waving with their forced smiles, all those overly colorful dresses, the too histrionic clothing of the band and the dancers and the shamans, and that ridiculous antler bow, aaaaaaam not sure about them. Just look at pic #3. I mean what Hungarians do sometimes on Kurultai it's over the top, but from actual Mongols I would expect bit more authenticity. Btw that golden stag in the neck of that chick on pic #4 (on pic #3 too), two was found in the Carpathian basin, one somewhere north of the Black Sea, and I think from the same area a panther. They were on shields. All Scythian in origin.

>>37945 >So the conspiracy theorist dude is a conspiracy himself. Would be fitting. It is about controlling the discourse, and language. The alt media is way more controlled than regular media I think.
First thing first: That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.
I also read most of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation#Responsibility_and_accountability I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do. Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?
>>34270 House automation systems don't have/need to be connected to the internet, and don't need the involvement of amazon or google or whatever. It's more about programmable and/or centrally controllable lights, temperature (house, fridge, boiler), appliances, or even doors, shutters and pretty much anything that need electricity. Reaching it from the internet is more a feature and not a necessity (and again it doesn't need the involvement of multis, tho probably if one wants to use access through smartphones the odds are some of these multis will have some level access..., at least for data).
So toxins. Medicine does not reject the idea that toxins are harmful to organisms. It knows and calculates with it. The effects are known, they are legit conditions, illnesses. They treat them. Why would medicine make up germs when they could blame anything on toxins? It's clear that poisoning does not account for everything.
>>38899 Not much different than toxins. Foreign stuff gets into the body and the body reacts to them (or their activity). Except these are (mostly) living things and not chemicals, molecules, elements. Even in the video here >>38203 that dude says they put foreign germs into the body of humans.
The Hungarian news site what I usually link lost the editor-in-chief couple of days ago, who was fired for reasons. Now over 70 journalist quit, or at least initiated their quitting, as an objection, also on facebook the readers organized a protest which should be going on right now I think. The background of the whole thing is political ofc. Some time back this year an entrepreneur close to the Fidesz acquired 50% of the company which owns this news site, the Index, while this media outlet reflects the opinion of the opposition. In fact it is one of the most important newspaper. This acquisition was deemed to be a tool to silence the opposition press - but at least influence this site's narrative, another step for the Fidesz to control the country's journalism (and already they do overwhelmingly, buyouts followed buyouts since Fidesz came to power in 2010). I saw a drop in quality through this - at least - 15 years I read them - when I read news at all -, and I criticize them on occasion. I think it would be a loss if this would end this paper. Well they could found another one I suppose. https://index.hu/english/2020/07/24/editorial_board_of_index_resigns/
meanwhile in Belarus. Uh, I have no clue what's going on there, the news from there sound like a bad comedy show. Belarus arrested a group of Russian tourists, because they were suspicious as they didn't drink alcohol. Lukashenko claims Putin wants to annex Belarus and replace Luka with a pro-Russian puppet.
