Looked up John Milius(Director of Red Dawn and Conan) and he's a weird guy that I'm somewhat fascinated by, I expected him to be right-wing to the core but he's some one reads Mao and thinks that killing billionaires is always justified
I have watched some of his other films, that he's either director and co-written, Geronimo, Wind and Lion and Farewell to the King and I get the impression that he just hates neo-liberalism and the modern world and would prefer anything over it.

>I'm so right wing I'm an anarcho-maoist
Horseshoe theory chad, I kneel.


He's actually Jewish(which yeah I know)


is Jewish Anarcho-Maoism a new ideology I don't think I've ever heard of it before


You know its the whole Director/Producer being a Jew thing.


Director =/= Screenwriter nor does it mean he controls the production, it's likely he needed the job, the CIA had a script and some people behind the curtains making sure things were as retardedly anti-communist as possible and there you go - Red Dawn is made.

As for Conan, it's not right-wing or whatever, if you had to give it an ideology it's primitivist, but honestly it's less about ideology and more of a story of a feudal primitive world and a man that rose up on blood and iron to defeat it, it's a story first and foremost, an ideology is almost irrelevant to it. The Conan thread has discussion about this.

What if instead of landing in the burger heartland, Kal-El landed in the middle of the Soviet Union?
What if instead of Ma and Pa Kent, the man of steel was raised by the other man of steel?
In light of this thread >>>/leftypol/164364 I think it's time to storytime Superman Red Son.

What the hell is this?

Maybe rather than complaining about poor people he should be complaining about rich people not giving adequate funding to all schools . Things like "high school ranking" are stupid. If all schools were properly funded then schools could all give IB and AP classes as options. People who study hard can still get all college credit and IB classes while people who don't study can coast on regular classes. School funding should become a state and federal thing rather than the burden being on local property values.



It seems like thats the problem he's describing. Lower income students means less funding means more rich people leave and creates a underfunded school that has less electives and chances for students to get opportunities in college credit.


Why is this discussion in a SUPERMAN thread?


>Muh Public Schooling
Public Schooling as a rule in the USA is garbage regardless, housing or not. In the Boston area? It's fucking awful most of the time. ESL has nothing to do with it, and if the system tanks because of a large number of illiterate immigrants, than that's a very fragile and shitty system to begin with.

>more rich people leave
They're not leaving anywhere LOL, they weren't going to nor investing in these Public Schools because the rich go to private schools, OR the Public School is just a token diploma path before jumping into college through some pocket-padded recommendations.


Pretty depressing honestly.


>Nu-52 supes. It’s shit
Years after it came out, holy shit that series really was the biggest fuck up DC made on a multiversal level.

Is Steven Universe liberal? I think it is because it propagates the notion that you can solve issues in society by talk no jutsu.

I’m gonna do a review of this trash series made by Jews and foot fetishists.

Here’s a list of the main problems:
- Way to much filler and pointless filler arcs.
- Nonexistent to inconsistent character development.
- God awful pacing.
- Plot holes LOTS of plot holes.
- Basic principles of animation and art design consistently ignored and not on purpose

Okay let’s begin this review

Filler is a major problem affecting the enjoyability of Steven universe as a show. For example the reveal of the cluster, a major point in the shows progression takes 72 episodes simply to be mentioned, within those 71 episodes prior to it most of the screentime is spent on random stories and monster of the week episodes that never develop Steven or the other gems as characters as Rebecca sugar didn’t actually write the show but merely got the story board artists to randomly draw what they wanted like what Ward did but with none of the self awareness or editing for smart writing along with the fact that Stevens personality keeps resetting itself. This fact is not an isolated incident in the show as nearly all seasons except for the last one repeatedly have this problem of having major plot point be isolated with massive gaps between them of endless filler episodes and arcs that have almost 0 impact on the story overall with exceptions like Lars.

As mentioned prior much of Steven universe is filled with filler episodes whom fail consistently to actually develop the characters of the show due to constant resets and a plot that wasn’t written professionally, unfortunately I cannot just excuse those episodes simply for being filler as even the main episodes fail to actually develop the characters with stories like pearls forced fusion with garnet being forgotten about or Steven’s empathy for mass murderers the diamonds after it was established repeatedly that Steven was emotionally immature and needed to develop as a person to understand that not everyone can or should be forgived for their actions lest more would face suffering. Steven universe fails to consistently develop its characters and its ideas on that development routinely become ignored.

That’s so incredibly stupid that I need to hear her say it so I can laugh.
Is there an interview somewhere?


I can't find it but there was an interview


yeah, it had potential about a bunch of lesbian revolutionaries overthrowing the space-czar, but in the end it was all about love and forgiveness


checked lol

Ironically these race-swap edits are pretty common on /trash/ for the Bleached and Blacked threads, which acciidentally kinda created an entire guide for race-changing illustrations in edits, which porn-fags have used to extreme effect, changing entire comics.


Tired of cyberpunk and dystopian culture in general, post ITT worlds you would want to live in or not too bad depictions of leftist societies.

>end-game scenarios of any kind are not plausible
This is a valid argument but it goes for the whole utopia genre I think.
Anyway I'm finishing China Mountain Zhang, it's not really utopian but in the book the US underwent a socialist revolution and a cultural revolution and humanity is fixing climate change so there's that.


Anyone remember the Earthsea animated adaptation?


You mean the Ghibli one?


You mean the Miyazaki one, made by his son?

Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!"
Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes?
The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

This was surprisingly compelling for a hot take


which side of space Zionism is right?
>The Ur-Quan Doctrinal Conflict or Doctrinal War is the conflict between the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah to prove which Doctrine (the Kzer-Za Path of Now and Forever or the Kohr-Ah Eternal Doctrine) is superior.
>The Path of Now and Forever is the guiding philosophy of the culture of the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za. In short, it dictates that all other forms of sentient life have the potential to one day enslave the Ur-Quan as the Dnyarri did. To solve this problem, the Path of Now and Forever calls for all sentient life to be either imprisoned within a slave shield as a Fallow Slave, or to serve the Ur-Quan as a Battle Thrall.
>The Eternal Doctrine is how most species refer to the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah's alternative philosophy to the Ur-Quan Kzer-Za's Path of Now and Forever. It stipulates that to eliminate any future threat to Ur-Quan freedom all non-Ur-Quan sentient species are to be exterminated. While the Kzer-Za, the Melnorme, and most Human sources use the term "Eternal Doctrine", the Kohr-Ah themselves never use this phrase to describe their philosophy, instead calling it the "Path of Now and Forever".
yes both sub-species refer to their ideology as The Path of Now and Forever

>letting other races stick around is totally not a risk don't worry about it
toad hands wrote this post


this ur quan don't know about symbiotic evolution


we should establish a multispecies union


allianceism has failed every time it has been tried. you have to be pragmatic and let the ur-quan recruit humanity as battle thralls. it's not a perfect system but it's the best of all systems that have been tried so far

have fun, its deffo very inspired by it; its also what the stanley parable ripped off if you've played that.


I've forced so many people to play the stanley parable over the years. So yes, that's very exciting. Thank u.,


I haven't read it, I was just referring to the fanfic I read. But the audiobook should just play the footnotes after the reference if it's that important to the narrative.


this. i would have happily listened to the end notes if they were part of the audiobook, but they weren't.


File: 1687925910018.jpg (1.63 MB, 4372x1699, WIRjaypeg.jpg)

i would have never gotten through it if it weren't an audiobook. I had a really shitty job where I had to use my hands nonstop and never had free time after work. It was perfect for that part of my life.

I said it was "OK" but honestly I liked it a little more than that . I even made this meme and posted it on /lit/ at the time. I cringe at it in hindsight.

>He probably get that shit from gymcelling, not from rockclimbing.
Forearms are actually relatively hard to get that big from gymceling. Same as your calves. Both those muscle groups are made for doing a lot of work over long periods, and you need to use them a lot under load for them to get big. That's why fat or formerly fat people have the biggest calves (carrying extra body weight all the time) and rock climbers or sailors or something like that have big forearms.
>Just look at the Tibetans who actually lived in the mountains and climb rocks everyday.
Not the same thing as rock climbing. They are walking around, using their legs more. Some Tibetan monks or whatever do a bit of climbing but they are still mostly walking, not pulling themselves with their arms. If you mean people like sherpas they are walking carrying shit working their legs more than their arms. "Rock climbing" here is when you climb like a monkey on a rock face. You don't usually carry a lot of extra weight but your forearm muscles are supporting your body weight the whole time so they get a lot of work.
>One thing i noticed is that people who grow muscles due to their lifestyle or job rather than regular trainings have tight and compact ones instead of the very prominent bulges you see from bodybuilders
Bodybuilders specifically target muscle size (hypertrophy) and use steroids so they are going to beat anybody at size alone. Any form of training is going to make the muscles bigger though, and plenty will make the muscles noticeably big. However, most people live a sedentary lifestyle today, so someone with bigger muscles may not look bigger overall compared to the average person who has smaller muscles but more body fat. The lower body fat is a more noticeable difference on most fit people since you can't even see the muscles on your average couch potato to begin with.


Good stuff man


Greetings. I'm a nineteen year old agender human. I've lived in Manhattan my entire life, and I really have no desire to leave.
Since I was young when I've been taken to rural/ suburban areas I've started crying. There's something about them that makes me really hate them, they feel so boring and lonely, and whenever I'm there I get worried that I'm not going to be able to leave, or sad because I know they exist. Even now that I'm an adult I just start crying or panicking when I'm there.


Ok, than stay in Manhattan, who's making you go to these rural areas?

It's not the worst. I'm liking it more as the years pass, from a story perspective. It wasn't made to be "liked" and I respect that.


I don't know about chemistry because if I remember it right Brian wasn't that into it at first, but she was all over him from the second she saw him. Taylor found him hot and liked his style and demeanor and chased him. You're just self-inserting.

I won't lie and say that Taylor x Lisa isn't cute tho.


Idk how exactly I’m self inserting. I just think that their relationship is uninteresting


I’m pretty sure Rachel’s personality and arc is a trope, does anyone know the tropes name?
