What don't I have control over?

Other people.

Not all other people, but primarily modern scum (members of modern culture).

I think it's more of a generational clash. What are elements of modern culture according to you? The modern era goes back to the industrial revolution according to whoever's in charge of ''official'' history. What is modernity? It is the sum of our technical, social, economical and political achievements thus far. Therefore, ''modern era'' is a bit of a misnomer as the time we live in is the modern era. I bet the humans that discovered the concept of wheel felt pretty modern. Anyway, a lot of modern things suck and yes, we might have reached our peak a couple of years ago and it's all going downhill now. God have mercy on our souls.

Don't expend energy on things you have no control over. As for your example, I'm not a programmer(although I've dabbled with high-level languages such as Basic(yikes!), Python and know my way around a Unix/Linux shell) but I agree these syntax ''improvements'' are a step back. Symbols can't adequately represent words and while it's shorter, it sure isn't better. In a world of emojis, Internet slang and social media snippets, the average IQ and attention span have plummeted and this is reflected in the coding world. I do not own a cell phone but am still addicted to that feedback loop provided by social media(i.e.: YT's algorithm) when I'm on the computer. I'd like to disconnect but am afraid to miss out on the impending Apocalypse. Hell is other people.

Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the ''how''(centralized digital currency, universal digital ID, social credit score,etc). I'm just puzzled as to the ''why'' when the Elite already owns/controls everything. Maybe there are darker forces at play? I've always been skeptical about the occult but the pervasive symbolism(thumb and index making a ''o'' and the other three fingers up) in Hollywood, the music industry, secret societies and politics has me giving it more credence nowadays. It's just too weird to be a coincidence.

Who made God? Where and from what did he emanate from? If nothing precedes God, how can he cast moral judgement on things that have yet to happen/exist? God is not a person. God is life itself. The Essence of creation. Anything antithetic to this is destruction, nothingness. The path to follow is quite clear and has nothing to do with arbitrary man-made rules.

I've just been using my macbook and my kindle usb cable 😅.

That works too and it's perfectly safe to do so. The advantage of having a charger and extra batteries is you can swap your depleted battery with a fully charged one so you don't have to vape with a USB cable in the way. I've seen similar warnings on batteries too. Just a disclaimer by the company. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Just use a dedicated vape battery charger like NiteCore, use a regulated device(mod) and buy some plastic shrink wraps for your batteries in case the wrap gets damaged(short circuits can be explosive with Li-Ion batteries). Never carry loose batteries in your pockets; carry them in plastic cases. You can get all these items at your local vape shop.

Perhaps you already know this and I'm typing this for nothing. Better safe than sorry though. I've never had any issues and I've been vaping for years. Happy vaping!

He has good topics and a nice presentation style. I don't agree with everything he says and don't take it as Gospel. Communism is a controversial subject and a lot of people approach it with knee-jerk reactionism. Ultimately, given human nature and its propensity for greed, every economic/social system is destined for failure. A ''perfect system'' will eventually be corrupted by imperfect humans. Just my 2¢.

I will have a look when time permits it. I'm not familiar with the Chinese game of Go. If there's a bit of a learning curve involved, it would be a bit arbitrary to use that as an assessment tool. The rules of chess, for example, are fairly easy to learn. Strategies, specific moves, anticipating and countering the opponent's play take a while to master. That being said, I'm not a great chess player but I excel at Scrabble. Anyway, I'll try to further my knowledge of Go...

Wouldn't there be ideological clashes between members of different faiths? Muslims and Christians are inclusive groups. Wouldn't this sort of elitism turn them off? Also, how would you gauge prospective members intelligence? What about mensa? Are you a member and if so, wouldn't it be easier culling from that particular group? I like the idea but am wary of the ethical implications of eugenicism. But, like you, I enjoy being surrounded by intelligent people with critical thinking skills and find little fulfilment talking about the weather and sports with average joes. I'm a bastard Christian with GAD and a 136 IQ. Can I join?

I quit cigarettes 5 years ago thanks to vaping. I'm still a nicotine addict but I breathe much better(no coughing up brown mucus in the morning), the apartment and my clothes smell much better and by mixing my own liquids with ingredients bought from an online store, I'm saving money as well. They want to ban flavours in Canada because of teens taking up vaping which makes no sense. They're better off vaping than smoking and it's not like kids couldn't get cigarettes if no other alternatives were available. Maybe our political wackos are being bought off by big tobacco...who knows?
