Not a moral fag… but I am sorry, illegalism is fucking stupid. Because what the hell are you even thinking you will achieve? You will NOT change the system by fucking up CCTVs or stealing crap from Amazon / Walmart. Now, if you had say a proper movement behind you and you did illegalism as a helping side activity as bolsheviks did, then great, that actually can work well. But this individual illegalist shit is just a pure larp. Now, if you are doing it just because you are a thief, then thats cool as well because most likely you won't actually hurt anyone by stealing from companies, but don't call it fucking praxis, you are just another lumpenprole hustling for a living at that point.

Guys they’re extending the eviction ban again potentially. I’m already living rent free, but I have a more devious plot to fuck over the landlord.

I’m going to throw a room up on airbnb and make some extra cash off it, while the landlord gets to eat shit every month lmao.

Does anyone have any experience with meditation or mindfulness?
Ive been seeing it again and again and it *supposedly, i havent checked myself** studies show it can help you focus better and reduce overstimulation from the outside world.
As someone who has struggled my entire life being overstimulated by everything, and who has felt my anxiety increase and my ability to focus drop over the past few years, I wonder if i should try meditating. Leaving aside all of the spiritual aspects, and leaving aside all of the stemlord objections, are there tangible benefits? Did anyone try?
How do i properly do it? For how long?
Thank you.

I think you might be experiencing a jhana ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhy%C4%81na_in_Buddhism ), I mean in the second sense given on wiki (high concentration state).

From what I know the opinions on deliberately aiming for jhanas are mixed, some people think it's a waste of time, but tbqh it's not like your third eye would go blind from a bit of literal mental onanism.

You could always try some "insight" rather than "concentration" focused practice for a change (more or less, taking in sensations as they come and go, rather than focusing on something in particular) and see how it goes.

Just to offer a counterpoint: I'm this >>13608 anon, and I have tried doing zazen without a teacher a couple years before, and it ended up being a complete and utter waste of time for me. I'm sure it would be better with a teacher, but for self-study I would personally not recommend a tradition that has a bee in their bonnet about speaking clearly and explaining theory. Of course, to each their own, maybe some people handle this style of teaching better.

So I'm reading picrel, and enjoying it so far, but I was wondering if there are any analysis of its critique of yuppie culture/capitalism?

Feel free to share your thoughts regardless, it is a very enjoyable book IMO.

I used to read lots of Baudrillard, but now I find this kind of radical critique totally pointless and toothless. It's like complaining about the existence of air at this point.

But if anyone's still interested in this then I recommend checking out early Baudrillard:

He's a liberal because he has no interest in making sure the new world will be any different from the capitalism of the old, he just wants to awaken everyone and return to status quo. The antagonist might be a brainless primitivist idiot, but at least he's got the right idea in the sense that he understands the fact that they literally have free reign to create a new kind of humanity from scratch without a bloody revolution instead of just returning to the old.

I have a weird relationship to Warhammer40k, I absolutely love the backstory of the universe and the lore that's established, and especially the concept of a mysterious age of technology thousands of years ago which constantly implies that some of the more magical woo-woo shit might actually just be a remnant of that time and not inherently spiritual or of supernatural nature. And that the complete religion the Imperium is founded upon might be made-up bullshit. I mean, from what we know, during the "Dark" Age of Technology humanity reached absolutely fantastical levels of technological achievement, who knows what they created. But besides that, the individual stories that are told in this universe are often more of a miss than a hit, they often have foreseeable writing and you are never really hit by a twist other than the trope of "behind this superficial evil that we are fighting is actually an even more horrifying evil".

I mean, you gotta cut the Tau some slack considering how every other faction is chronically twisted and fucked up.

The way the Tau Empire expands isn't technically through "imperialism" but is more like the way China handles its foreign policy. The Tau will establish diplomatic relations, followed by trade relations introducing tech to imperial worlds that would be considered "heretic" which starts to cause cracks within humans believing in the "Imperial Faith" and all that. Technological boons would eventually cause planetary governeurs to defect to the Tau Empire or at least confederate with them, because let's get real, the Imperium of Man is always far away taking decades to respond to a threat, so they don't feel particularly incentivized to keep being loyal to it. The Tau do not actively start aggressive wars of conquest, it's usually that they sway planets into following them, may it be ideologically or economically, which then causes a backlash, to which they react defensively.

Comrades let's have a thread for martial arts, combat sports and self defense. Striking, grappling, all styles welcome (except fake ass shit). Let's talk about training, techniques, fights, fighters, etc. Here's a fun fact: One of the many achievements of the soviets was founding their own combat system, sambo, which proved to be extremely effective and is still widely practiced today.

(Not the anon you're replying to.)
Your arguments do sound logical. Long bones don't sound ideal for blocking kicks, and sure some have got broken that way.
But at the same time, I remember myself blocking the kick of a savateuse that way in a savate class. by accident, shin blocks are illegal in savate. I'd been cross training in Muay Thai. It did work. Unfortunately she got hurt by the block. I wasn't meaning to do it, the cross training just came out.
(Another unrelated observation. First day beginners often do well in savate sparring! They tend to do unchambered kicks like football kicks which can be fast. They're like the old "defense dans la rue" system designed for street self defence.)
I guess a lot is going to depend of the angle of your blocking shin (if it's angled, knee forward maybe that's what dissipates the force of the incoming strike along the long bones of the blockers shin?), relative bone density, etc?

Apologies. I just realised you're discussing shin strikes, not shin blocks.
For self defence, I'm with you savateurs/savateuses on this. For self defence, great if you wear steel toecap footwear for work and remember to keep kicks lowish (ribs /solar plexus at highest, unless an expert) or set them up with something else.
