  1. From what I understand, political leaders reflect the values and developmental level of most of the nation. The majority of Americans don't share blue-stage values at all. How on earth would they tolerate a Christian fascist dictator? Even if (or when lol) Trump gets reelected and starts reenacting this strategy his rule won't last. People will rise up or something
  2. I live alone and it's amazing, not gonna lie. I also combine it with travelling. For example, I moved to Kazakhstan from Russia two years ago and travelled all over the country. It was mind-opening and akin to a psychedelic experience. Now I'm in India, as a solo traveller, I work remotely and my job funds my travels. My inspirations are Ikkyu, Li Po, Ryokan you name it. Wandering sufis, zen hermits, Daoist poets who also treasured solitude and appreciated travels. Freedom and independence for me are the most important perks of living alone
  3. I'm curious, in which ways do psychedelics strain your body? Like how do you feel after the trips? I know that every situation is unique, you included. Personally, even after the most difficult heroic dose-tier trips, I feel refreshed, reset and full of energy and motivation.
  4. The US supports Israel because it strategically benefits the US, it's as simple as that. Israel is akin to a huge American military base in the Middle East which it can use to push its interests. Look at another ally of the US - Saudi Arabia and the atrocities they're committing towards Yemenites. That's geopolitics for ya. Human Rights organisations (Amnesty International etc) have been speaking out about Apartheid in Israel, ethnic cleansings and displacement of natives in illegally occupied Palestine for decades. What collective West have been doing about it? Nothing The West doesn't care about human rights violations and war crimes as long as it gains something from it.
  5. I just leave it here. The whole concept of raw and primal diets is ahistoric. Anatomically modern humans have never stuck to eating strictly raw food diet. The fire was tamed way before our species arrived at the scene, like about 1 - 2 millions years ago. So we evolved eating cooked food. Also, I don't understand this fixation on raw milk. I drank a lot of this stuff when I was a kid, like fresh unpasteurized cow milk - in my opinion, it's only superior to the regular one tastewise. It's super delicious. And that's it.
  6. Well if you don't trust Aljazeera for some reason, try reading The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Ilan Pappé or The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine - A History of Settler-Colonial Conquest and Resistance by Rashid Khalidi. Both are pretty solid books on the matter. (I didn't notice the previous post. Anyway, it's a pretty good book)
  7. Danioover9000, why are you putting so much emphasis on declining birthrates in the first world countries? It isn't a problem at all. Google what demographic transition is btw, it's a natural inevitability. Overall, the total population of the Earth keeps growing, so mass immigration is one of the solutions. Secondly, with mass automatization, you don't need a lot of people anyway. All this talking about falling birthrates makes it look like people are supposed to have kids. People are supposed to do whatever floats their boat, metaphorically speaking. If they wanna have kids - amazing, if not - perfect as well.
  8. Well, fuck. Unlike Putin, he was the real leader and cared a lot for Russia (yeah I know everything relative and Purin also cares a lot for Russia in his thuggish way). However, getting back to Russia after poisoning was realy stupid move. If you look at Russian history you can see that all successful revolutionaries like Lenin for example didn't live in Russia during their most active years. Lenin lived in Switzerland and Germany before Reolution, otherwise, he would've been hunted down and murdered. I don't see how being dead is helping topple the regime. Navalny was too idealistic.
  9. I guess it depends on where you live. Here, in Kazakhstan it's legal and you can simply go to a site, choose your city, girl, and call or message in WhatsApp. It's extremely cheap as well. But it's a third-world country. I bet things are a little bit different in the States and Western Europe. Also even if it was illegal, so what? Pirating movies and ordering psychedelics on the dark web are illegal as well and here we are, doing all that.
  10. That's kinda hilarious tbh. You don't need to hire a coach or make 1000 approaches to get laid, that's ridiculous. You can simply have sex with a hooker, which is easy af. I think in reality incels don't want to have sex, they want to wallow in their victim mentality and learned helplessness. Very good video on the topic:
  11. isn't chanting as much zen as doing zazen itself? Chanting aims to help you focus your mind and be more intentional as you noted yourself zen has a lot of formal chants for this and that, like meal chants, are very special Also, if you go to a Gelug temple in Russia you'll see monks in traditional Tibetan robes all of them chanting Tibetan mantras during formal service for example. Are they trying to be Tibetans? Hell no, like they usually got educated in Buddhist Gelug monasteries in India and stuff. That's simply the way of this tradition
  12. I think OP has a very shallow notion of what normal is. The following quote by Yuval Noah Harari elaborates on it way better: "Culture tends to argue that it forbids only that which is unnatural. But from a biological perspective, nothing is unnatural. Whatever is possible is by definition also natural. A truly unnatural behavior, one that goes against the laws of nature, simply cannot exist, so it would need no prohibition"
  13. I find his stuff very useful. He covers a lot of topics like zazen for example: https://www.youtube.com/live/3lrCTpwY6rs?si=OyJpLP3UoLQ61OyT or https://www.youtube.com/live/oS80EKYcjo0?si=_nUXgFT8cZERO_16
  14. It isn't a psychedelic, yes. But you can use it to enhance and prolong your regular mushroom trips if you take it an hour prior. Also, Ash55 growing mushrooms isn't as difficult as the internet makes it out to be. There is plenty of info about it. When I was a poor student I had pretty decent harvests, so it isn't a matter of money investment
