I’m honestly pretty fatigued of the NPC meme, but twitter isn’t, and people getting banned out here, and the lefties are triggered; that's what happens when you think parroting late night talk show talking points makes you intellectually rebellious.
The npc meme isn’t about free will and it isn’t about inner monologues and it isn’t about seeing yourself as the hero of your own personal Campbellian journey. It’s about the homogenization of inner life in the era of mass media
There’s a sort of implicit claim that is fundamental to humanistic thought, which is fundamental to this era of western thought, it’s the idea that Gaussian variance aside, everyone has petty much the same experiential topology. Let’s call it human neurological uniformity (HNU)
Ignoring such people as autists for the moment, and given HNU, which most people believe perhaps without ever having thought about it, what do we expect to happen when everyone watches the same small pool of tv shows and news broadcasts?
Suppose you have agency, inner life, &c. And you decide, using the marvelous brightness in your soul, to watch 60 hours of game of thrones. Because you are normal, you now have thoughts about John snow and Daenerys, thoughts which you share with millions of others
And there is nothing wrong with enjoying a TV show, but when millions of people watch the same TV show, and the same news commentators, and read the same articles, they think all the same thoughts, literally the same thoughts, with the same words, the same words we all heard
We all have looping behaviors because life is on average repetitive. People are predictable despite individual variation in the same way that thermodynamic systems are predictable without modeling every individual particle.
Industrialization is a process of mass repetition and homogenization. Industrial man is highly repetitive and homogenized, and the mechanism that repeats and homogenizes is broadcast media. Before that it was books and pamphlets and newspapers
The nature of our inner life in broadcast media vs. written media is different. The idea of the NPC refers to a kind of total conformity of being that is brought about by broadcast media.
Tocqueville described the NPC meme in 1895 "What is still more strange is that all these men, who kept themselves so apart from each other, had become so much alike that it would have been impossible to distinguish them if their places had been changed."
He was talking about the effects of reading books mass-produced by the printing press. Cobbett in 1795: Every farmer is more or less of a reader. There is no class like that which the French call peasantry...They have all been readers from their youth up
Ironically avid readers are probably less NPC-ish than "illiterate" TV-primary people. In a highly literate society, visual and behavioural conformity frees the individual for inner deviation. Not so in an oral society where inner verbalization is effective social action
You can log in to netflix and see a hundred different shows, but they're all very similar in their underlying themes and worldviews. Even the older stuff is carefully curated to mesh with contemporary sensibilities, mostly. The same characters in different shows, the same dramas
The effect of watching so much TV is you form a series of unilateral friendships. It feels like you personally know all the people you are watching, and you move into social alignment with them, just like you would with a group of in-person friends
This fits the Kaczynskian take that leftists are "oversocialized"

Everything is so overly politized.

Everyone is so retarded and quick to arguments.

It's enough to make me want to murder everyone.

How much Sprite do I need to drink in order for myself to stop giving a fuck?

According to Neitchsze, everything you hate in others and the environment is within yourself. You hate it because it is holding a mirror up to parts of you that you hate. Let that sink in.

I don't care about your political affiliations, home life, if you take it up the brapper or in the crappery only concern is whether you are a pure WHITE person or some nigger. If the latter then you need to leave NOW! Darkies chinks slant eyee, slav, spics and gooks. South of the equator or east of the Alps your kinds needs to GTFO. I have spoken to moderation and they have agreed.to begin permabans in 24 hours.

You have been warned, shitskins.

Starving to Death

1 Name: Anonymous 2018-10-06 12:18
You probably don't realize it, but you could be starving to death a few days to weeks from now. Supermarket collapse, natural disaster, etc. could see you cut off from food access long enough for starvation to take place.

A critical lack of conscious observation leads one to surmise that all subjective things, including those present only in the individual, are of a most stellar, or spectacular nature. I would say this assumption is indicative of a problem that goes beyond the mind of the individual, and perhaps reaches into the very will or fortitude of the individual. Without question, there is a certain sort of "attitude" or stigma which seems to present in the individual as a form of intellectual deficiency. To separate deficiency from degradation, it could be said of the mind to allow for a more spiritual sense of intuition, the likes of which would not be in the disposition of degeneracy to fit itself with. On the contrary, intellectual degeneracy seems to invoke a sort of disdain, unique in its sensation and not wholly attached to the personal feelings of the individual. In this way, disdain could be spoken of as an unnatural sort of thing, which does necessarily preclude the attitude of the individual.

I'm sitting here with a bottle of pills

1 Name: Anonymous 2018-10-13 14:01
Hi goafinger I'm a pedophile. I'm sitting here with a bottle of pills, going back and forth on whether I should take it. I'm terrified of dying. But I feel it's the right thing to do. I have acted on my urges in the past, and given an opportunity where I think I'd get away with it, I think I would again. Should I? I dont even know if the pills will work, so advice on that is welcome too. Also, ama I guess.
