One of the biggest conspiracys around is how the will to live and do anything, how to care about your life has been drained from a good percentage of the population of white countries. More and more everyday just dont give a flying fuck about anything.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80622678


You aren't supposed to point it out. The 60% of men under 35 who are single are supposed to be treated as incapable of wooing women, you aren't supposed to notice that they haven't put a minute of effort into trying.

The unemployed are supposed to be treated as a cold statistic. You aren't supposed to notice that they don't want employment. You especially aren't supposed to notice that a sizable amount of those who are employed don't want advancement or raises, they put no value in such things.

It is an odd nihilism that has descended upon the mass. Even among the gifted, a schizoidal quiet has quenched all desire from them. They wish for nothing more than to live a quiet existence, forgotten by the world.

The creepiest ones I know are some of my college class. These are guys with degrees in mechanical engineering, software engineering, stuff like that. They worked in their fields for around 5 to 7 years, then bought tiny off grid lots and basically cut off from the world. Live alone in the wild building their own dwellings, weird sculptures, filling notebooks with who knows what. I barely was able to locate them a year ago as part of something. As far as I can tell, they're clean, healthy, still quick witted and socially capable. But for all that I ended up with 4 personalized variations of the same story. Could be a dozen more given how many others in the class came up completely missing with 0 leads.

It's been my experience that if you do try to go in and work hard the old fashioned way that the other employees will take offense and make your life Hell. Usually the boss is either entirely clueless or powerless to do anything about it. Also money ain't worth shot anymore and you still want to pay 13 bucks an hour. Fuck that I'll go cur grass.

Back over twenty years ago I worked for a temp company in New England. Started work at an insurance company that had three temp workers who basically just sat around all day.

If I'm at work I want to be busy, can't stand just sitting around and this was pre-phone internet time, so they just stared into space, smdh.

I went permanent at the company and replaced all three temps. Everyone raved about what a good worker I was, lol, not hard to replace three people staring into space all day.

I can't imagine how much worse it is now with everyone staring at their phones.

What about this: a well qualified person gets hired, and gets no, or spotty training. Then other employees are angry that the new hire doesn't get everything right????

Seen this awhile back.....its about averages of good workers to bad....the ratio is out of balance in favor of bad.....the good workers are self starter, motivated, and alert.....they will go far in this current world of slackers.....I know a few that are already crushing it in their early 20's with business start ups....

They're so bogged down by how stressful being a human is these days. High cortisol levels. Adrenal fatigue. Maybe.
 Quoting: MarissaWinchester


No. They’re failed human beings.

Not entirely their own fault, as the internet and smart phones were designed to produce this sort of person when mixed in with the sea of propaganda from the media, along with ever more intrusive government regulations. This psychologically beats them down until they conclude that life is basically not worth living as it stands, and they exist in a kind of slightly-tormented limbo, with little in the way of hopes and dreams and constant state of ennui.

It's easy to stare off into space when you are highly medicated, which it seems like most young people are these days.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75948550


Just look online at the veritable explosion of “bushcraft” videos, with men, almost invariably young and white, living in the woods and building primitive structures to house themselves, as well as all the companies, like Self Reliance Outfitters for example, selling the necessary gear. It’s a phenomenon that has taken off recently, with mixed elements of survivalism, “back to nature”. D outdoor skills. We old-timers used to refer to this collectively as woodscraft, which was hunting ,fishing, woodcutting and similar outdoor activities and tasks, but it encompasses much more now.

My suspicion is that more and more white men are becoming aware at a deep level that they are being marginalized, and are retreating to the forest primeval where women and the dusky races fear to tread.
