I've read 2 books by him i believe
Dark they were and golden eyed
And dandillion wine
Dandillion wine was boring
Dtwage was interesting
I’m reading Fahrenheit 451 at the moment
That's a pretty based book
The actual story is like 100 pages but my copy includes like 140 pages of extra information
That's such a tedious book. I can't recommend even though it's in the dystopian canon. Short, but tedious.
I personally like his short stories more than Fahrenheit tbh
Anyone read “the problem of pain” by cs Lewis?
The red book by Carl jung is a great read
like Harassment architecture but 2019 and looking towards Zoomers instead of wingnats and looking back
reads like the best takes of your twitter feed two years from now
Audiobook for the Machiavellians: defenders of freedom by james burnham. it really gels with Nrx theory. he sums up the wiritngs of Machiavelli and the Italian elite theorists.
Nice. I just finished The Prince and The Discourses a few weeks ago and it's difficult to come to any one conclusion of what he actually advocated, so it'll be cool hearing a redpilled take. Thanks for sharing.
@Norik yes he goes over that and gives context to the political situation of Italy at the time . Machiavelli wanted a republic but saw at that point in time Italy needed a sort of dictator or prince
yeah that's what my professor said when I asked him what he actually thought
he's a total boomercon though so idk
i just got to the part where he talks about the iron law of oligarchy and how you cannot remove hierarchy
also nice fake offline <:scowl:267481153777172481>
yeah I think what makes machiavelli deeply resonate with me is that he's not full of ideological bullshit and realizes that even his desired form of government isn't always appropriate
his central orienting principle is O R D E R
which is exactly right
james burnham also has another repill book where he talks about how liberalism is causing the suicide of the west in his book "the suicide of the west"
AA released some clips from the audio book
also ive heard alot of shilling for burnham from AA and from other people
so seeing these clips finally pushed me over the edge to start reading them
@everyone Any books to recommend concerning the subjects of the Quadrivium?
So I read this book called Babylonian life and history written by EA Budge. It is about surprisingly ancient Babylonia and it’s history. The book starts by covering the geography and city states of the region then moves on to an overview of its history, the city of Babylonian itself and then talks about the laws, customs, society and writing system of Babylon. The it must be stressed that this is an overview of Babylonian and not an intense history of it. It is quite interesting learning about Babylonia because not much is talked about it. Babylon the city was founded almost 4000 years ago and was still occupied as a city until about a thousand years ago. It is a very old city and a very ancient region with parts that have been occupied on and off since the Stone Age and even when xenopon march an army through one of the cities he called it ancient it was old for him and was viewed by him probably the same way we view the Greeks and Romans today. It is weird thinking about it because the city seen thousands of people born, live, fall in love, make friends and enemies, traded, worshipped learn and die there but we don’t know a lot about them and they are often forgotten and we don’t know a lot about them we know a lot about the Greeks and Romans but don’t know as much about the Babylonians.
But in short the book is an 8/10
Pros: good for people that aren’t familiar with Babylon or are taking a class on it, it is good as an overview
Cons: I would not recommend this book to people that are familiar to Babylon or need a more in depth book on the subject
I heavily recommend it for people that want to learn more about it but don’t know much about.
If you have questions about it you can ask me below
Boring capitalist crap
Stop reading economics start reading siege
I really don't like Austrian economics
Preachy merchant religion
Hey guys, Mises was pretty based...give him a shot
tbh i get all my economics from the bible
Lachmann was great get all your economically illiterate friends to read him instead
Tbh it is over-used
I did infact
Find that a funny joke given the context
I don't know the full story behind that, but I'm willing to bet Mises was younger and less wise in regards to econ.
I couldn't care less about Mises personal or work life I only care about his ideas
Although I'm fairly sure you didn't give all the context
Austrogang gotta stick together ✊
Aha Austrians of the world unite ✊
take your capitalist bullshit back to israel
here's my economic policy:
go back to the woods
Usury is shit
"trust me guys prostrating ourselves before the free market and corporations will totally save the west"
Anything I can read about this?
About Mises's gov job I mean
To be clear, I'm not saying the market is the most important thing and I have some hard questions to face as a libertarian on many issues, but by understanding the economy you are not changing your political and philosophic outlook on life. It simply adds to your understanding of the world.
You can say from an economic perspective one thing and a political one anohter
But on the issue of loans I honestly feel as if it isn't immoral via the concept of time preference
The real question we should be asking is "What is the definition of usury?"
@AustrianSchoolUbermensch Have you read Hoppe yet (or at least have an a understanding of him, so to speak)?
I got the reference
Catholics seem to mostly consider all interest as usury, but from my personal studies it seems the biblical definition is more like "lending to someone who *you know* can never pay the interest."
read his works economic science and the Austrian method and Democracy the god that failed.
Does discord put up on the book title? (I know the book though)
Wouldn't think so just said it like that because it was quick
Charging 6 Unobtainium coins (interest = 1 coin) to borrow 5 U-coins when only 5 coins exist in the entire world would be usury
@AustrianSchoolUbermensch Oh ok, some of the normies will be confused though
Hoppe is great
I need to finish reading DtGtF
He is great in parts
Can get abit spicy of course
