I'm gonna poast about one of the paranormal experiences I've had as part of an Alcazar™Halloween thread. If anybody else is going to be doing thematic horror stuff on Halloween, @ me the day of and I'll add it to a thread of threads.

Me every time I get angry at my computer
There's this one light post that starts flickering like mad whenever I go near it but works fine around everyone else. It also happens all the time with random electrical stuff at my parents' house. Wat mean?

Several hours of Excel number shunting has lead me to conclude that statistics and numbers aren't real. I'm literally going to kill the next person that cites a study at me as an argument.

If you're not hopeful for what's to come, you're not paying attention.

I'm stuck being only a few steps ahead of the ever-intensifying madness of modernity.

Though our goals are misaligned, you can often find good analysis of our current predicament in unsavory places. This 'dictatorship of urgency' is precisely the result of man supplanting God for mammon. The City of Man, as Augustine calls it, can only lead to self-enslavement.

"Everybody will be eating soy and bugs in the future! It's over, man!" Many people have no idea how resource intensive it is to produce massive quantities of nutritionally null food. Anyone trying to sell you this blackpill doesn't understand human consumption habits.

Americans eat more meat now than they ever have in history. You can't just suddenly rip that away from people with soybean-based slop and expect that to work. The whole point of these plant-based meats is for meat companies to catch consumer markets they wouldn't otherwise.

If there is a collapse in meat production and distribution, you'll switch to eating a starch-intensive diet, because that's always what people eat when they don't have access to meat and dairy. No amount of wanting to find additional use for soybeans is gonna change that.

It takes a massive amount of energy to make inedible food 'edible' for humans, and it's a lot easier to make rye bread and potatoes. My prediction for the long-term in the US is that there'll be a drop in meat consumption, but there'll also be a drop in how much slop we eat.

I wrote this thread at midnight last night, so check it out if you haven't seen it.
Since that moon landing thread between @AgarthanSchwab and myself, I've been thinking about technology a lot. If civilization in any sense is to continue, the Right needs a comprehensive technological ethic, and this thread is my contribution to such a conceptualization.

4b. Amoral Technology Amoral technology's classification is based on its use. It has the capacity to be used immorally, but its mere static existence is not inherently offensive. All weaponry, including weapons of mass destruction, would be incorporated here.

4c. Immoral Technology Immoral technology derides the human spirit, detracts from human understanding, and attempts to subjugate man under his own passions. Hard-core drugs such as heroin, as well as internet pornography, would be examples of this.

4d. Intent of Use Is a Categorical Non-Factor Using moral technology in an improper manner does not negate the category. Using an amoral or immoral technology in a nefarious way under the assumption that such use was actually moral does not negate either of those categories.

5. The Right Must Reject Luddism Due to the existence of moral and amoral technology, to condemn all developments is untenable. Any system of belief made on rejecting technology wholesale is not serious or worth pursuing. It is a bad idea to idealize groups like the Amish.

6. Efficiency Is a Poor Metric for Measuring Technology Using efficiency as a metric without other considerations fails on the grounds that these improvements often come at the cost of increased fragility, reliance on other systems, and incentivization of short-term thinking.

7. Robustness Must Be Taken Into Account Groups should favor building robust systems, because their increased initial costs are usually offset by their longevity and capacity to handle suboptimal conditions. These systems are often local and produced with short supply chains.

These heuristics are by no means exhaustive or exceptionally detailed, but I think they serve as a useful tool for navigating thought around the topic of technics.
