The Tiger was an awful tank, a waste of resources and did nothing to change the course of any battle.

Is investing in bitcoin or crypto worth it in 2021? I thought it would stagnate by now but there has been a lot of growth at the beginning of the year, if i remember correctly. I was thinking about putting a chunk of money on my wallet and letting it snowball until it grows a couple of times so that buying an apartment will be easier for me, but I can't seem to decide without asking my internet friends about it first. Based or cringe idea?

I invested in bitcoin since 2019 and 2.5x what I've put in. You can still make gains with it. Presumably Bitcoins price will
1) crash now and rise steadily until November 2022
2) significantly rise and then crash before steadily rising until November 2022
That's just the prognosis for now. We should be around the 100k to 200k range next November.

securities are just any kind of financial contract that you can trade. stocks/equities, futures, loans, etc
clicking around on investopedia can be useful, although they can still be pretty opaque

Try it out, I found it by looking for more obscure music torrents. You'll find things you won't find on any of those mainstream torrent sites. Doesn't matter if the search compiles a bunch of sites that all have the same limited pool of torrents.

This type of Anti-DPRK propaganda reminds me of those sitcom shows for children that were clearly written by out of touch boomers. Agent Johnson realizes that (movie, song, show, etc.) is popular with the kids and writes an article about Kim Jong Un killing 1,000 innocent teens who consumed it. Then he publishes it 2 weeks after most people have lost interest. Every major trend has a "North Korea executes those who know about it" report that is repeated by every major media outlet. I think the purpose of all this is to create anti-DPRK sentiment in the younger generations.

Capitalism.

As for the described issues, it's literally just the same in Japan and to an extent the USA. Standardized education is probably the only thing that is an inane complaint, as I can personally attest, non-standardized education a la the USA is the reason some people think that America took Berlin in WW2 and that Russia had been in the Axis alliance.

Most of these have conservation/environmentalist messages, although I think some have leftist themes, anticapitalist at the least. (Example being Martian/Earth relations in earlier Man After Man). I know there's more projects here that I've missed or haven't covered but feel free to talk about more.

GQ:Are there political or social ills that that you think might benefit from the sort of entropy that psychedelics can introduce into our consciousness?

Pollan:I do and I don't. I do in the sense that the experience addresses what I see as two of the biggest problems we face as a society. One is an environmental crisis, born of our sense of distance from nature: our willingness to objectify nature and see it merely as a resource. The other is tribalism: our inability to see the other as like us, and the egotistical zero-sum game with other people, whether it's other countries, other races, other religions.

Along comes these medicines that actually change consciousness in those two domains, very specifically, by making us feel really connected to nature, that we sense the subjectivity of other species. Which should lead to treating them with more respect and care, and feeling a deep implication that you're part of nature, not just a spectator. And then, on the tribalism side, [it] makes you feel deeply connected to all different kinds of other people. So you could argue that this is exactly the drug we need right now.

But then you need to stand back and say, “Wait, is it possible to prescribe a drug for an entire country?” How many people do you have to give this experience before you change the culture? And that was something Timothy Leary spent a lot of time on, he had these predictions of how many people he'd have to trip before the world changed. There's no model for prescribing treatment to a culture. That takes you into a really terra incognita of social change. I think, for that stuff, we still need politics.


Is he right? Will Psychedelics help with archieving the lower stages of communism, or are they to advanced, so that only in a well developed democratic dictatorship of the proletariat they can help transition further into full gay luxury psychedelic space communism?thinkThink

I was always told that tripping needs a plan, like a real life road trip or something, and I think that's totally accurate. I halved my dose for a week in advance, then went off completely for a week. Depending on the ssri you might have to be off it more or longer.
Also, depending on your dosage, you might not even need to be totally off your meds in the first place.
