  • Hey everyone, I'm still alive! I've been dealing with some personal stuff but things are beginning to resolve. Babbling Corpse got here and I've started reading it. So far I have some critiques of how he portrays Vaporwave and it's verbose to a fault but overall I'm enjoying it. I've also had the inspiration to write a "manifesto" on how to actually achieve socialist goals and how we need to adapt our strategies for the 21st century. A lot of lefties are working off the framework of theory from over 100 years ago and it leads a lot of people to do completely useless things that don't achieve anything. It ties in with Choking on Vibes pretty well now that I think about it.

    remember 2005-2009 "emo scene theatre-kids"? so... futures that were imagined and presented (to the blame of WIRED and similar magazines)...
    and then, something happened. that dream grew old, people woke up, - like that @Jazz Wizard ? i get it, it is rosy nostalgia now, but then, it was "internet will eat those rich fucks" man...

    Yeah kinda. The 80s was depicted as a time of abundant wealth and luxury but nobody but the rich were able to experience even a fraction of it and I think he's arguing that Vaporwave is like a cynical depiction of that. It's like how Gen Z people are looking back melancholily at the things they grew up with. I'll post a summary of the book when I finish reading it :)
    I swear to god, learning about genocides and human atrocities is less depressing than keeping up with climate change

    The elite isn't as strong as you think they are and they don't have as much power over you as you think. Even the WEF can't force you to do anything as long as you are ok with inconveniences. The lead usage did get lowered, the Chlorine and boromine usage were lowered too. There are a lot of restrictions on vessel transits and train transits in most of the world.
    The elite aren't some marvel villains that have infinite resources, they are just rich people and they aren't rich enough to buy public opinion. There are real actual people that hold the rich people's side in ruining the planet like cucks but the people that actually like the nature are not powerless.

    Depression keeps popping back up : /
    Update on my book:
    I ordered Babbling Corpse and intend to respond to it if I have any criticisms and I'm gonna be reading some Mark Fisher (Postcapitalist Desire & Acid Communism). I plan on fitting this book into a broader project I'm working on called Choking on Vibes which is about how our obsession with nostalgia and aesthetic conformity is strangling our creative development and it's also the downfall of many political movements.
