Look at picrelated. There it is. Your chance to enlighten the plebeians, possibly spark the artistic fervour inside someone who may not know their potential. Convince Frances that she's wrong! Write as if your comment will be publicly seen on facebook under your own name.
Is there a point to this comment?
I'll admit I'm lazy and it isn't impossible to convince anyone.
But the chances of succeeding are low enough with a person like in OP's related for it to not be worth it.
It's a lot like choosing your friends. Sure you could try to be friends with everyone. But some people aren't worth the effort.
Most actually, but that bit is an opinion.
How does /lit/ feel about fahrenheit 451?
>and almost certainly, they knew that they had witness...the birth of a nation.
Is this book worth reading? Don't really know much about Kissinger, but I heard it's good. Have you guys read it?
>I'm guessing it's a thinly veiled blueprint for an eventual New World Order
It sounds interesting because he mentions "how to build a shared international order in a world of divergent historical perspectives, violent conflict, proliferating technology, and ideological extremism."
I like books about transhumanism and all this real world "chaos" and fast-paced change.
Hundred odd pages into this and its boring as fuck. Does it get any better?
How do we differentiate between which things are worth knowing and which are not. What books are worth reading and which are not?
I'm a perfectionist. I know that you don't just start reading history, or reading philosophy, or learning a language. You have to start at the beginning. So where is the beginning? How do I do any of these things?
I keep sitting down to read, but I find myself questioning what I'm getting out of it. I tried to read about the Napoleonic wars the other day. I couldn't keep it up. Where is the benefit in knowing the names of Napoleon's marshals or the details of his battles? Where is the benefit in knowing anything? How does it benefit me? I try to read philosophy, but it's too daunting. I can understand so little of it. Feels like trying to climb a mountain without even knowing where it is. I hate myself for having so little attention span and being so fucking retarded....

It's out in about 3 months. Can't remember the name. It's almost 300 pages long, which probably nearly killed him.
Good author, though. Stuff like White Noise and Underworld are good books, and unusual. Running Dog is alright. Does /lit/ like him?
What did Proudhon mean by this?
>Jews. Write an article against this race that poisons everything by sticking its nose into everything without ever mixing with any other people. Demand its expulsion from France with the exception of those individuals married to French women. Abolish synagogues and not admit them to any employment. Finally, pursue the abolition of this religion. It’s not without cause that the Christians called them deicide. The Jew is the enemy of humankind. They must be sent back to Asia or be exterminated. By steel or by fire...

He meant that Jews should be prosecuted because they immigrate to various European countries and form their own enclaves which don't contribute to society, but only feed all their productivity back into their own communities.
Are "what did he mean by this" thread bait? It always seems to me that the meaning of the quote OP is asking about is painfully obvious
>Can't afford Shakespeare
? i paid $8 for a complete shakespeare. every secondhand store I've been in has at least two or three of his plays for a buck each of less. probably one of the cheapest possible writers you could read.
Post your favorite red pill books. I'll start.
>The Mahabharata is the longest known epic poem and has been described as "the longest poem ever written". Its longest version consists of over 100,000 shloka or over 200,000 individual verse lines (each shloka is a couplet), and long prose passages. About 1.8 million words in total, the Mahabharata is roughly ten times the length of the Iliad and the Odyssey combined, or about four times the length of the Ramayana.
honestly, that's just poor writing
