    Pragmatism Vs. Nihilism: The Ben Shapiro, Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson Trifecta

    You’re taking my example out of context. Milo seemed to think we wouldn’t be able to avoid making prescription errors for people who don’t fit neatly in the two gender categories of male and female, while I demonstrated that we handle a far more complicated issue of medically relevant...

    Pragmatism Vs. Nihilism: The Ben Shapiro, Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson Trifecta

    lol no you didn’t I suppose not being able to call black people the N word is similarly unjust since it is compelled silence. Do you see how absurd this reasoning is? If your fallback to not being a dick is the First Ammendment you don’t really have a leg to stand on. Muh moral purity. I...

    Pragmatism Vs. Nihilism: The Ben Shapiro, Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson Trifecta

    Society can't handle transgender people because we only print medical forms with two gender boxes? You know there are like 8 different blood types right? If anything we should have far more precise and granular ways of differentiating humans than the millennia-old and clearly flawed categories...

    When is thinking excessive?

    Questions will always outstrip answers. You can either keep pursuing them forever or not bother. Either way, being right isn't the only thing that matters in life. Baseline human functioning (survival, socializing, basic tool-making and craftsmanship) has no need for that kind of advanced...

    When is thinking excessive?

    No it doesn't. You can know plenty of things without bothering with those things. The majority of humans who have ever existed have probably never thought of any of those things for more than ten minutes over the course of their entire lives. Papa McCarthy with a parable:

    increasing discipline and stuff

    Mostly renounced the cult, not solely due to the effects of occupational burnout, but that certainly helped. I stretched myself too thin for too long and then started to wear down, psychologically and physically. Some slobbery has ensued I guess. Seems to come with the territory. I think most...

    How to joke, in english

    Do you watch or ingest any English-language humor? Like standup comedy or comedy movies? Might be a place to start if you want to broaden your horizons. I think the 1980 movie Airplane might be a good place to start. It's got a mix of slapstick and word play that seems to cover a lot of bases.

    How Nationalism Will Beat Modern Liberalism

    Depends on your social stratum. In the US, highly educated coastal liberals have more in common with highly educated residents of foreign countries than with the blue collar workers the next town over. Nationalism appeals to the losers of the social dominance game.

    Eh not really. I went in pretty cynical. I thought my guy had a good shot of winning and wanted to ride coat tails.

    japanese literature

    Yeah, since my first post in this thread I've read almost everything he's ever published. His books have pretty predictable patterns but I still find them spellbinding for whatever reason. Windup Bird Chronicle is probably my favorite. Hardboiled Wonderland is probably number 2, then 1Q84.

    Dunning-Kruger's corollary is about the highly competent underestimating the level of their own competence, not achieving some pseudo-Socratic level of wisdom about the things they don't know.

    INTPs THAT ENJOY YOUR JOBS--what do you do?

    Might want to consider UX design, potentially even for 3D/immersive/VR/AR stuff. Depends on his background and interest in software I suppose but if he has a strong rooting in design he could probably pick up the basics of the other stuff in a few months of self-study.

    I live in SF. It's cyberpunk as fuck. Shitty infrastructure and dirty streets and wailing, drug-addled, insane homeless people and self-driving cars and 20-something billionaires. And yes, there's lots of weed and no one cares if you're smoking it.
