You’re living in the Stone Age, the world outside your cave is cold, unknowable and dangerous; and you’re suffering from a bout of influenza that, according to the elders of your tribe (their average age is 40), is caused by a human-hating god called Loke, whose name is later, in Viking mythology, changed to Loki; but you’re being looked after by the female members of your tribe, and you know – regardless of how long it takes for you to recover – you’ll be taken care of, because that’s the human way?

Gradually, however, the egalitarian principles of sharing and justice that personified Stone Age societies have, through the fragmentation of tribal groups into faceless, global communities, devolved  into one of Dante’s lower level of reality where greed, addiction, and inhumanity have become the virtues of our self-conscious societies; nevertheless, the Stone Age mentality still exists in the subconscious of the collective human animal, but the Jungian archetype of the caring and benevolent homosapien has dissolved into an uncaring, cruel and vicious beast.

In 2002, a book called Straw Dogs by a world-class philosopher called John Gray was released. Described as a ‘’Nihilistic masterpiece’’, it was, is, a text that challenges the concept of humancentrism, which is expounded by idealistic philosophers whom believe humans have a deep connection to their greater reality, for these people reality itself bends to human will, and in the minds of thinkers such as Bishop Berkley (of the 19th Century) objects are actually bought into existence by human observation. John Gray claims these philosophies are an egotistical perception based on a collective belief that humans are separate from animal nature, so … our societies don’t follow the laws of written into the genes of the non- human animals; thus: we are heading towards a Christian Utopia.

The Utopian Concept

The Stone Age society that I’ve just mentioned, with its egalitarian, principled culture, has been used by writers such as Robert Wilkinson (author of the Spirit Level) as an example of our lost utopian ‘’heritage’’; and, due to this book and its subsequent political movement called the Equality Trust, a group of left-wing thinkers have bought their high-I.Q’s into a collective that believes the pluralisation of opportunity and income (which has Marxist overtones) will solve the mental illness, educational failure and crime which is the  result of poverty.

I believe, however, these people are missing the point, and are using a theory based on the normal, human tendency to share in social situations to postulate that this can be bought out into wider politics, and cause a paradigm shift where elitism, greed and self-interest are bought out of the darkness and mutated in the light of our ‘’real’’ human nature; and then … utopia will exist?
Perhaps no one elucidated the development of the ‘’us and them’’ phenomena inherent with human nature more than Carl Jung; he claimed there has been, in the human race, an evolutionary adaptation that has caused us to only trust people in the groups we are familiar with.  Because, common sense dictates, in our Darwinian past, nature would have selected children who had the tendency to trust their elders’ warnings about the hateful, ‘’animalistic’’ nature of alien people, and those children  would’ve been saved from the torture, exploitation, and murder that has  run through human history like a river of sanctimonious blood!

You only have to observe the uncontrollable levels of class-, ethnic-, racial- and religious hatred that exists all through our species to understand the truth of Jung’s theory. But the natural hatred and jealousy that results from the hieratical structure of human societies, will cause   – due to their feelings of empathy for the so-called weak (chimps feel empathy too) – a minority to fight for a new political system that will, once and for all, create happiness for all! They have forgotten the existential golden rule: everyone like us is we, and everyone who is not is they!

John Gray points out, all through human history, the antecedent for revolution has been bloodshed: from the French revolution to Bolshevism to National Socialism, the language of change is murder!

The Way Forward!

If an individual wants understand the world, and develop a way of living that is inline with his true will, a fundamental understanding of knowledge, and what is- and isn’t true should be where that will is first directed towards.

Empiricalism is dead – an understanding of reality through the senses is subjective at best, and a slave to the paradigms of the day at worst (if, for example, you accept scientific theories as objective truth, because you ‘’experience’’ their data through the senses!).

As a base for human knowledge, Rationalism is a given to any human being with reason because, on a subconscious level, we amalgamate concepts and judge reality from them, but is a fish as a fish as a fish? The Nihilist should accept that reason and rationality are the filters of knowledge, and not pure sense experience, and ‘’all’’ knowledge start from the mind and is projected onto objects, but – due to the fusillade of knowledge that exists – the ideas springing from the subconscious- to the conscious mind should be an accurate representation of what reality the agent wants to create through his own thoughts; and only Pragmatism suffices for that end!

Pragmatism decrees an individual should, given different strands of knowledge, choose the strand of knowledge that is more inline with what the individual wants to achieve; in the words of the science fiction writer Octavia Butler: all, each one of us, can achieve the impossible, if we can convince ourselves that it has been down before.
A Nihilist whom has based his knowledge on what suits his journey towards happiness then should – to find salvation – wage war on human beings with a callous lack of respect; because, in the evolutionary struggle for status that stems from sex selection, the most brutal, uncaring agents finds the most success, and the ‘’good’’ are left to feed off the scraps tossed into the gutters by their brutal masters!

John Gray postulated that morality is a convenience, but I don’t agree with that concept; I do, however, see morality – except for cases where sacrifice is used in the name of ‘’justice’’ – as a tool:  F. Nietzsche was perhaps the greatest philosopher to show the different forms of morality for the different degrees of human being; this is where a Nihilist should start, and where he should formulate his plan to defeat and placate his fellow human animals. 

Nietzsche’s slave morality was accurate in its explanation of what people in the lowest edge of society - read oppressed or unwanted - see as virtue; Nietzsche said virtues like altruism, liberalization, and fairness are needed by the so-called weak to be seen as ‘’good’’, so the so-called strong will share their knowledge and material- and social wealth; but, Nietzsche said, the ‘’strong’’ see altruism, liberalization and fairness as vice; and view greed,  ruthlessness and selfishness as virtue, because it secures their power!

With an understanding of what morality is, a Nihilist should, in an the style of an Existentialist,  discover what area of reality best serves his interests and  what he’s prepared to work in, and then dedicate his existence to it. Nevertheless,  concepts such as philanthropy have an objective reality of ‘’goodness’’ to the emotions; perhaps the reward chemicals are activated in the brain from acts of sharing, because nature selected people who would help each other in times of struggle to aid human survival, but who cares? We are all, in a very strong way, chasing these happy chemicals, and every action is a move towards them, so if an individual finds fulfilment through chasing experiences derived from sharing food rather than a needle; even it’s, on a base level, a junkie’s trip and shouldn’t be called universal morality or any other bunk that is expounded by theologists or religious fanatics, this mode of behaviour could serve a purpose for a Nihilist towards happiness!

The ultimate test of life is, and always will be, to reproduce; but the suffering of existence makes cowards of us all, but treatments such as the Buddhist method (if analyzed) have applications outside of peace and can be used for the trench warfare of human life. A Buddhist master, or anyone who has achieved enlightenment, is a person who has learned to ignore the screams of the ego – all thoughts! – and lives in the level of consciousness that we all enter when we’re in the non-REM level of sleep! Where a concept of self doesn’t exist!

A Nihilist, if he wants peace of mind before his rampage of slaughter, should use the Buddhist method and understand it’s a simple understanding of cause and effect. Non-attachment  doesn’t mean weakness; the Samurai, who were a secular and barbaric breed of human beings, used non-attachment to unimportant things (read most human activity) before they cut off their victims’ heads and abused their minds in unmerciful rituals of depravity!  The key to a quiet mind is not caring about opinion and it is needed for the next stage of attack!

Charles Manson, perhaps the most underrated and underappreciated radical philosopher of all time, described, while he was interviewed in prison, his theory of mind; he claimed he experienced freedom through the eyes of people as diverse as an Australian bushman through imagining their reality through imagination; and he even got up from his chair and said, with his eyes glazed with excitement, ‘’see … mind is here … mind is here,’’ and so on; he did this because he wanted to show how it’s the mind that experiences everything, and – in effect – the body is just a vehicle for all sources of pleasure and pain.     

From the establishment of freedom being a concept of imagination: in that it – freedom – doesn’t require an apparition of luxury, competence, or superiority for a Nihilist to feel those circumstantial rewards, the imagination can also serve to create circumstance, but a Nietzschian element of superiority over the remaining selves - in the Buddhist sense of their being no ‘’I’’ - over the myriad of other selves must be achieved before the individual revolution takes place. 

This dominance of, say, a sportsman self over or an academic self must be stoked with the emotion of desire, which is the fuel that each self needs win the inner- and outer wars, and is – in essence – inseparable from will in that it has a feeling of dominance over the selves just like the emotion of will has too. Once the dominant selves are established in a Nihilist, like all animals, he must, when it comes to status competition, pick off the weaker members of the pack without mercy, and see emotions like contentment or belonging as his enemy: you don’t want to need them. The states needed are the states that are – again, in the existential sense – the effects of individual command of a self which has reached its fullest potential, and has defeated one of our biggest evolutionary enemies: the tendency to believe and live by the paradigms of our cultures. We must be individuals, which is the only value of Nihilism!

You've got a sheetload of unsupported assertions, bogus summaries, and downright antisocial-to-inane statements in that text wall of free-form-style post:  Here, in my view, are a few of the many examples.

John Gray claims these philosophies are an egotistical perception based on a collective belief that humans are separate from animal nature, so … our societies don’t follow the laws of written into the genes of the non- human animals; thus: we are heading towards a Christian Utopia.

The 'thus' part is nonsense.

pluralisation (sic) of opportunity and income (which has Marxist overtones) will solve the mental illness, educational failure and crime which is the  result of poverty.

 Mental illness is the result of poverty?  Really??  Picking up your Nobel Prize for that research??

Charles Manson, perhaps the most underrated and underappreciated (sic) radical philosopher of all time.

  Charles Manson is one of the most insane humans to exist this century, and is little more than a sociopath; a remorseless murderer who happens to have a particular skill of convincing similar minded mentally ill people to go along with his insane fantasies. (ah, perhaps their mental illness was caused by their poverty!!  Now, if Sharon Tate would have thrown more cash at them they would n't have been so poor and insane?? <sick sarcasm off>

I could go on - each of your paragraphs has similar unsupported (or just wrong, or downright antisocial-insane) conclusions.  Are you writing some kind of World Criminal Novel and testing it out on us?

I turned off after the bull about the stone age being utopian. The rest is just typical of my thoughts with a dash more crazy. Eliminating competition and securing power for ones self without the constraints of morality and ethics is something which distinguishes leaders and followers however all good leaders know a happy servant is a productive servant and having a lot of guillable fools to do your bidding is always handy as long as your willing to cast them aside or use them as a human shield when the time comes. Of course morality and false hope are brilliant tools of control and should be encouraged amongst the masses. Much like a drug dealer however one must be careful not to use the very poison you're selling and this is the sign of a true leader, someone who can preach about morality, ethics and egalitarianism only to do the opposite and yet not lose favour with his people.

When writing an essay, always start with a topic sentence. You want to immediately begin to focus your readers attention to your point. The next few sentences in the first paragraph should serve to narrow the focus even farther, making the theme less general. If you don't then it makes the rest of your essay hard to read because the people have no basis to comprehend what you're trying to say and will be confused with your message. As it stands your first paragraph is better suited to be your second. Your body paragraphs should always have a clear connection to what it is that you've stated as your topic. However, much like your paragraphs your topic is unclear because it is never stated and it only becomes understandable by about the tenth paragraph or so.

Also, in an essay that is supposed to be about Nihilism, you don't even mention it until the third paragraph and then only in a secondary way as part of a title. I would also suggest that you provide quotes from the people and books that you talk about, and then give your interpretations of the words as opposed to just name-dropping and then stating us your opinion. Above all keep your ideas focused on the topic at hand, do not just jump from one point to the next. The first half of the article seems to be supporting something entirely different from the second half because there's no coherent stream of thought.

Lastly some general points.
1)Never use contractions
2)Do not use first person pronouns such "I","my",or "me"
3)Do not use second person pronouns such as "you","your","yours"
4)Your final paragraph should revisit some of your old points and tie them all together and should once again clearly focus your statement.
5)Brevity is tantamount. Much of this is overburdened by more words than are needed.
6)Using big words and complex sentences is not a substitution for good, well thought-out content. You'll confuse most readers and much of the time it detracts from your point rather than helps it.

Lastly, and this may just be a result of the poor quality of the essay writing, but you seem to have a very little knowledge about Nihilistic philosophy or Nietzsche's ideas. I suggest reading up. Though again, this might just be a side effect of the poor expression of ideas presented as opposed to limited knowledge on your part.

As to the substance of the article. Read Historicity and Tinyal's comments. That about sums it up.

I can't say I at all agree with anything written. Nihilism can't be a good train of thought for you and it's worrying when you consider an insane man like Charles Manson to be a great philosopher, it was his kind of insanity that led to the Manson family doing what they did in the first place. Why would Nihilism be a great concept? It seems to devalue life a great deal and appears to hold no realistic view of the world.

Lines like this worry me:

Quote from: bartly
A Nihilist, if he wants peace of mind before his rampage of slaughter,

And then you use Buddhism and connect it with the Samurai. First stop. It wasn't Buddhism that the Samurai's warrior philosophy is based on, but Bushido - Tsuenetomo Yamamoto highlights the principles in his book, Hagakure, where he even details that a samurai should act even if stopped by Buddha or an oracle of their religion and to cut down the gods if they stand in your way. He recognised that values of religion, even Buddhism, wouldn't support the things they'd have to do for their master. In the case of 'cut down the gods' if you're praying to the same god as the enemy then there's a chance that god will be fighting on their side.

Buddhism is about the human condition, putting an end to suffering (breaking the noble truth, All is suffering), in the story of Siddartha Gautama he made himself poor to understand why people suffer, if you're in support of murder and the samurai philosophy, then surely you're working against Buddhist principles, just because Buddhism works in removing you from the idea of the 'self' and looking to move away from materialism it does not mean it's a philosophy that is similar to Nihilism or one that can be adopted by nihilists to fuel their world vision

And the point of the samurai philosophy was to create the ultimate warrior for battle so in essence they devalued their own lives so that their clan could gain power, it wasn't necessarily for anything 'greater'. Samurai were servants to a master who'd do anything because they were told to. Whilst much of it was seen to be about honour, they didn't place value in their own lives but in the lives of their master. This is what I understood from reading the Hagakure.

Bartly, I must say that I don't think you are the author of either the OP or this one.

You have told us that your IQ was tested at 88, and your usual posting style is fraught with spelling and grammatical errors.  Not that any of that's bad, per se.  But if you're going to quote third-party material, the rules of the forum are quite clear: you must source it.

If I'm wrong, I apologise.  Otherwise, please go back and edit your essays to include a source reference.

Bartly, could you perhaps try to post coherently?  It would be of great help to the members of this forum and may result in an actual discussion.

He was trying to be nice as possible, he kind of has to check up on these things if there's a lick of suspicion. I don't know any dyslexics to respond so badly when picked up on their posting style or are noted for irregularities. Perfect English not required, but if on one side you've got a well constructed post alongside several poorly constructed posts (for whatever reason) you might suspect plagiarism. If you're using spell checker and grammar checker, it's possible you could use it for other posts - I use on built in to my browser, as every so often, I make mistakes myself and it just makes it easier to spot them.

You may hold issues with humanity, but not everybody's out to get you and I really can't see nihilism helping with your world view, in devaluing pretty much everything, I get the feeling it might be partly responsible for why you're so depressed about the world, particularly in previous posts you've talked about purpose. Devaluing one's one life was a part of the samurai philosophy, but that was only in submission to a master in order to become a tool for war. Charles Manson devalued the lives of others and became responsible for murder, there's no great philosophy behind it, it's a delusion to justify such acts. Every man who does wrong sees himself as righteous, no truly bad person is a villain from Captain Planet, "we must do evil!" but merely do it and try to justify themselves, not always necessarily to deceive others but to deceive themselves. Though of course, there are those who accept they've done wrong at a later date, but such is not the case for all.

Yes, maybe I was a bit too harsh! My grammer, however, isn't bad: it's just my spelling.

I'm sure - if people want to get pedantic - as is the case with some on this forum - I'm superior to most in grammer. It's just my spelling; I'm dyslexic, and I can't be bothered to correct it for people whom ''may'' have the, eh ... wits, or whatever, to intterprit.

I have to say, not considering spelling errors, when I read those posts it looked a far cry from your usual grammar and writing style.  So much so that it looks like a different person entirely typing.

Anyway, I googled most of your text, in different combinations, and couldn't find any evidence of it being plagiarized.  All that happened was this page kept coming up on google.

However, probably best not to take pops at the mods as that usually ends badly.

The funny thing is that your post was difficult to read due to grammar, not spelling.  Spelling mistakes aren't that big of a deal; what's really important is being able to clearly decipher the message and its intent.

It is quite possible I am ignorant, Shaun.  That's why I asked.  I meant no offence.  Your omission of source credits could have simply been an oversight, and I wanted to give you the opportunity to correct it.

So why am I suspicious?   Let's forget about spelling.  As you say, there are spell-checkers.  But I notice other anomalies, none of which admittedly constitutes a smoking gun.

On one hand, you write phrases such as "them posts were mine", "a nhilist don't need friends", and "for people whom"

On the other, the OP contains long, complex sentences such as ... well, just about any of them.  Regardless whether the posts make logical sense (I wasn't focussing on that, merely on their style) one has to admit they are grammatical and they evidence a fairly high level of facility with written English - considerably higher than mine, and I'm a bright person.  A spell-checker simply cannot do that.  I don't believe a person with an IQ of 88 can do that.

Then there are the occasional extra spaces between words.  This sometimes happens when someone cuts and pastes, and the words wrap differently.  Curious.

Also, there is the idiosyncratic way of constructing double quotes.  The open quote in your OP is actually a combination of two accent marks - a grave followed by an acute.  The close quote is actually two acute accents.  Most people at a computer keyboard simply use the double-quote character.  The acute accent is not even found on my keyboard, so I'd have to go to some lengths to embed one in a document.  The only other place I've seen anything like this is in documents formatted for publication by typesetters.  Curious, to say the least.  And if it's your habit, then why don't you do it consistently the same way in your other posts?

I too googled your text in various ways, without success, so I cannot prove you are plagiarizing.  I don't yet know what's going on.  I have no answers, only questions.  At this point, however, I think it would behoove you to not antagonize me.

Well, people do type essay papers differently than they do when posting casually online.

This has been so much fun, so now I'm going to (using my mum of course) reply using correct grammer*, punctutation and a spell check. Every time I do this*: it means I've used a spell check for the word before.


I admit, among you Ameicans, my European way of posting may display evidence that I'm plagiaizing *; but - due to me never having to meet any of you - I don't bother to try and impress. I go on here for the same reasons as everyone else, I'm an athiest: an atheist with dyslexia*. 


I also drink a lot of beer - I wrote all those poorly thought out articles sober; I often post when drunk. It makes a difference. Nevertheless, I admit, you Americans are way too supportive of Albert Binet's* tests designed to elucidate* the cognitive weaknesses of mentally retarded children: the I.Q. test. I've got a friend who scored very low, and he's a leading scientist in a top London university. Explain that.

Anyway ... I'm off to drink a cup of wine and steal a few moments of happiness with my girlfriend's sister. She always brings the cigars.


With love,


Shaun

Your spell checker must be malfunctioning, because the correct spelling for "grammer" is "grammar", and "plagiazing" is "plagiarizing".

I'm so happy you know that - my friend, I admit it, I CAN'T spell to save my life. I do, however, know Johnny Cash's A Boy Called Sue off by heart. I sing it at parties, mostly; nevertheless, if you ever visit any English brothels don't - DO NOT - be surprised if you hear: ''Oh ... my daddy left home when I was three....''

With love,

I'll be sure to keep that in mind when I get drunk and visit an English brothel.

By the way, if you're looking for information, the best place to, you know, visit, is my hometown: Southend-on-Sea, Essex. I've had experiences in some of my hometown's more ''private'' establishments that would qualify as divinely engineered phenomena. It's amazing what happens when you combine an Eastern European blonde, a 12 foot leather whip, and the Bible. My ex-Catholic school teachers, well ... they wouldn't be pleased!


Kind regards,

The next person who lazily adds to that ever growing quote-nest is going to have their post sent to the trash.
