Scruton on nihilism

A humble, soft-spoken conversation… and Americans hate it.

No soundbites, no sneering, jeering, shouting, lying. No verbal gladiator faking for cameras.

They call him the stupid one. Wow.
Would you rather he pretend to know, spoon feed and give you useless information that sounds intelligent? AKA the Jordan method.
No, he gives you snippets neatly stitched together for you to think about and make up your own mind.
That is a compliment.

In case YT deletes this one, a favourite part;

vulgar secular perversions of (Paradise), in all of our nature to long for the compensation that… we have not had. And to think that they’ll finally be given to us, that which we’ve always wanted. But it may be that that is the only way that many people can live properly, by holding in front of themselves this ideal and trying to earn it. But of course it doesn’t stand up very easily to examination. There’s nothing vulgar or silly in wanting that. And after all, the greatest trial that all human beings have to confront is that of.. death. How to accept the fact that, you know, I will die. What is it that I’ve- how should I think of myself in order to do that? (confronting this) …It wouldn’t make it easier for … (idiots) many people… they need ‘something else’ (blithely)
The concept of consolation that we have is influenced by the Christian religion, foundation of our civilization and it’s what glows in the embers… a tragic quality, a redemptive story. The redemption of the soul through this repudiation of earthly things. …A most extraordinary idea. The ultimate symbol that there is a path… of acceptance. I’m not strong enough… Why should we accept? Well, we have to. There’s two choices. One is to go towards our end accepting it, the other is to be dragged kicking and screaming (tone of distaste) – same outcome, either way. The only thing we have to do is to achieve the serenity beforehand, which comes from willing sacrifice. I think it’s a model of rational conduct” (eye gleam, pointed stare, change of subject)

Yes, he’s a total intellectual lightweight, right?

The self-pity pill

Male borderlines. Suicide threats give it away.

Nihilists actually laugh, it isn’t an excuse. If you’re looking for meaning, making everyone else’s business personal or saying the world Should Be a certain way (just world fallacy) then you’re not a nihilist, you’re another entitled narcissist.

Most nihilists are actually sociopaths, completely cold and thrill-seeking. They’re chilling to watch and I say that from personal experience. It’s better to have many feelings than the reverse, believe me. There’s still some potential and human in there. You can’t cut out your heart however much it hurts to feel, there’s the connection to other people you need. You gotta heal it. First step it to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and get the basics down. Get a good therapist if you can afford one too. Fix yourself, reach out to others.

Suicidal ideation occurs when you want people to care about you, the classic scenario is envisaging your funeral. You’re not empty, far from it. Worry when you’re numb! Wanting people to care isn’t weak, any more than caring. Self-care is especially vital for men given your weaker social supports.

Convert an atheist to hierarchical norms today!

See: Why mockery?

Signalling is Freudian signifiers.
>Checkmate, atheists.

People who claim Freud was wrong about sexuality still get the most ripe interpretations of inkblots despite sleeping around. Stop flirting with Wicca and commit to Christ.

egocentrism is fine, a weak superego is terrible

A lot of supposed nihilists are just Freudians with no clue how to interpret.

Speaking of impossible memes (because you find nihilism to have meaning) – cognitively.

How is a meme qualitatively different from an idea?

Meme is such a pretentious way to discredit any faith by coaching it in pseudo-Darwinian paradigms. Thoughts do not guide behaviour, it is values and those arise from cultural principles. Religion shows the shifts in paradigm of cultural dominance over time.

Today my pill is so red it shifts into the UV spectra.

Iconography is not the territory.
Virtue signalling is the modern Pietism. These basic bitch Pharisees.
Remember to self-flagellate with your Father’s disappointment today!
