Your time will be better spent making yourself the person you claim to be instead of claiming to be the person you will never be.
As you’re aware, I was studying losers last year -> BillCammack.com/tag/loser-society/.
That’s over now, but I wanted to discuss a situation where I feel that people are damaging themselves under the guise of affirming their beliefs. Continue reading “Politics Without Personality”
A highly-fictionalized account of the fall of the Qin dynasty and the founding of the Han dynasty.
ok.. I just watched this insanely-long television series called “King’s War” or “Legend of Chu and Han”.
I’m sure it’s **EXTREMELY** fictionalized, 😀 but it explains the fall of the Qin dynasty and the founding of the Han dynasty.
The budget for this thing had to be a gazillion dollars because there are 80 episodes that are 45 minutes each, which makes sense for a television show because that’s an hour minus commercials.
Basically, the point they were making is that people can’t get along. 😀 Continue reading ““King’s War” Commentary”
If you remove losers from your society, guess what, *YOU* become the new losers.
According to Wikipedia, this is the definition of Separatism: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separatism
A common definition of separatism is that it is the advocacy of a state of cultural, ethnic, tribal, religious, racial, governmental or gender separation from the larger group. While it often refers to full political secession, separatist groups may seek nothing more than greater autonomy. While some critics[who?] may equate separatism with religious segregation, racist segregation, or sexist segregation, most separatists[who?] argue that separation by choice is not the same as government-enforced segregation and may serve useful purposes. There is some academic debate about this definition, and in particular how it relates to secessionism, as has been discussed online.
Separatist groups practice a form of identity politics, “political activity and theorizing founded in the shared experiences of injustice of members of certain social groups”. Such groups believe attempts at integration with dominant groups compromise their identity and ability to pursue greater self-determination. However, economic and political factors usually are critical in creating strong separatist movements as opposed to less ambitious identity movements.
In short, separatists of any brand, white, black, lesbianic, whatever, are seeking an environment where only they exist, like Williamsburg.
Here’s the problem…
If you live in a society when you would rather live in a different society, you are a loser. Continue reading “Mediocracy / The Overarching Psychological Failure Of Separatism”
My experience with bullying is that it merely points out to me who needs to get got.
A friend of mine asked a question on social media about bullying yesterday.
The day before, I had had a conversation with a different friend where I was trying to understand a concept I don’t believe in that he wholeheartedly believes in.
Because of the previous conversation, I approached the bullying question with “Do I understand what bullying is?” Continue reading “Bullying”
If there’s no cooler, there’s no community. The only thing that can constrain evil is a greater evil.
I’ve been binge-watching this series that’s basically a remake of “Lord of the Flies“, where one of their themes is how order is created out of chaos.
Someone evil rises up and a lot of the kids start following him because they want to be a a part of the power structure.
The evil kid is kept in check by a collaboration between a smart kid and a cool kid who uses his power for good.. Not meaning superpower, meaning that he assesses what he feels is the right thing to do and then makes strides to make that happen.
When they make these stories, they practically invariably make the good guy a 100% good guy.
This isn’t actually possible because the only thing that can check and constrain evil is a higher level of evil. Continue reading “Smacking Vultures [Loser Society]”
