are you a material yourself?

2017-05-22 07:30:10 UTC  

Yes, I am now.

2017-05-22 07:30:18 UTC  

@Deleted User and before?

2017-05-22 07:30:57 UTC  

Not since right now, since maybe a month ago. Then I did not know; agnostic. Wanted to believe that saw no logical way. Now I see my cowardice.

2017-05-22 07:31:18 UTC  

@Deleted User what is the history of this material?

2017-05-22 07:31:54 UTC  

You mean historical materialism or other secular explanation like determinism? Is this an exam?

2017-05-22 07:32:51 UTC  

@Deleted User What qualitative, quantitative changes in your essence did you experience?

2017-05-22 07:33:32 UTC  

Tension and then freedom. I combined the best of both.

2017-05-22 07:33:47 UTC  

@Deleted User tell me about it.

2017-05-22 07:36:01 UTC  

I had experienced what I thought were 'mystical' experiences, that I could only experience being close to the supernatural, or at least entertaining thoughts of the supernatural. This created tension because I knew in my mind the supernatural did not exist. But then, when I read Marx and about Dialectical Materialism, it filled the supernatural need. And now I have piece of mind and piece of heart together, with no tension. I have been freed.

2017-05-22 07:36:25 UTC  

@Deleted User Materialism is a cure for dialectical mind. But there are not many to be cured.

2017-05-22 07:36:57 UTC  

Most material is idealist. One sided. Very limited.

2017-05-22 07:37:35 UTC  

At this moment

2017-05-22 07:37:55 UTC  

Even Hegel could not escape his idealism.

2017-05-22 07:37:58 UTC  

but there is a way

2017-05-22 07:38:56 UTC  

Yes, materialism was my cure. But what did you mean by 'a way'? What way?

2017-05-22 07:39:39 UTC  

@Deleted User a materialist way.

It changed the way I looked at the world.

2017-05-22 07:40:26 UTC  

People who used to impress me no longer impress me.

2017-05-22 07:40:48 UTC  

@Deleted User what was the previous way?

2017-05-22 07:42:36 UTC  

@Corset I used to tolerate the supernatural belief in others because I thought it did some good. Now I can cut through their lies and show they are slaves to bourgeois thinking.

2017-05-22 07:43:28 UTC  

@Deleted User which belief exactly?

2017-05-22 07:43:50 UTC

2017-05-22 07:44:38 UTC  

@Corset Well, you see, I was a Fascist. And in those circles there is a big argument about which faith is best, according to the benefits it provides. Its a kind of willing brainwash. Yes, quite crazy looking back but that was their argument.

2017-05-22 07:45:28 UTC  

Ex-Fascist are best anti-Fascist.

2017-05-22 07:45:54 UTC  

That would be true. I know all the tricks. I have already hurt lots of feelings.

2017-05-22 07:46:29 UTC  

I know their mindset and I know why they do what they do, and their motivations.

2017-05-22 07:46:32 UTC  

That is a diamat way

2017-05-22 07:47:22 UTC  

Preservation and altering.

2017-05-22 07:47:33 UTC  

That is good.

2017-05-22 07:48:09 UTC  

Their ideology is short-sighted, and I can point it right out.

2017-05-22 07:48:10 UTC  

exceptional even.

2017-05-22 07:48:28 UTC  

@Deleted User how are they short-sighted?

2017-05-22 07:49:47 UTC  

What are the best methods of anti-Fascist propaganda?

2017-05-22 07:51:48 UTC  

@Corset Fascism has no 'long game' or 'end game'. The most successful fascist state would take over the world, but then what? As an ideology built on struggle against an enemy, but with no more enemies, it would turn upon itself, forever and ever. There is no resolution. It is fundamentally regressive. This is not a smart plan. I was dissatisfied with this. They focus on preservation instead of transformation. Once I went looking for alternatives, I found DiaMat, which was the definition of transformation.

2017-05-22 07:52:10 UTC  

On anti-Fascist propaganda, I haven't thought about. Let me think.

2017-05-22 07:52:42 UTC  

I could write a lot about this.

2017-05-22 07:52:48 UTC  

do

2017-05-22 07:52:57 UTC  

Ill go smoke

2017-05-22 07:53:20 UTC  

My friend, I will have to summarise, I have other tasks.
