China may indeed take the opportunity of a Russian invasion to move into Tiawan. I doubt it but it is certainly not out of the realm of possibilities. It really depends on if Russia and China are working together.

The youtuber Adam Something has a lot of good videos on how dumb cars are, even elextric ones, and that trains are the obvious way to go. The problem is that anti-car sentiment has been political suicide and still is. You might unironically be better off running on a platform to normalise pedophilia. People fucking love cars, because they are told to, and because the US is entirely designed around cars. They make most people using them intensely unhappy for large portions of the day but the mass psychosis that cars are good is hard to break through. It is conveniently good for large corporate interests also. Manufacturing consent.

They've been saying this on and off for 8 years now. If Putin doesn't invade soon I'll fucking do it myself just to not hear about it anymore.

Fucking fascists (look it up, don't take my word for it) need a kick in the head.

Consider that whether or not you buy a laptop, the kids in Africa are still going to be starving. Nothing you do is going to change that. I don't mean to sound like a cold bastard but I've been around people with that sort of martyr complex; people who feel guilty about everything as if all the suffering in the world is contingent on even their tiniest choices. That's no way to live. And it's honestly self-absorption masquerading as self-sacrifice.

Even if you sold everything you have, gave it to charity (good luck finding one of the few that's not a money-siphoning scam, btw) and either lived on the streets or just killed yourself, it really wouldn't make a damn bit of positive difference in the grand scheme of things at all. The capitalist system of worker exploitation sucks. But it will continue to suck whether you participate in it or not.

At the end of the day, there are people who love you and those people need you to stay alive. That largely takes suicide off the table as an option. So, while you're here, for your sake you need to find some way to stay sane. You could buy a computer second-hand, since whoever owned it before you has already paid their dues to the sweat shop. You could start a garden and grow your own food organically. With a bit of outside-the-box thinking, I'm absolutely certain you could put together a half-decent life for yourself without violating your principles.

I don't have the time or energy to be a grief counselor or therapist for strangers online, so don't expect me to check back in and keep up to date with this. But I did figure that it was worth putting down some of my thoughts in case they help at all.

There is a reason to keep trying. It's ultimately up to you to find what it is. Best of luck.

Isn't capitalism a grand system? We could easily be able to give these people everything they need to live worthy lives, but because we'd rather prop up thieves like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, and stand idly by while "governments" loot their own nations, 9 million people die from starvation on this planet every year. Some 30 million are slaves - actual violence-coerced slaves - and the rest of us are wage slaves. Selling girl children... what the fuck, talk about dark ages.

Humanity is basically doomed, and I'm not really upset about it. As a species, we're pretty evil dumb shits, and deserve extinction.

My life has been very unhappy and to me it was not at all worth living and I wish I never had to live this life. I've also been struggling through alone my entire life, constantly rejected by society, never accepted or felt part of any kind of community, never had the help or support I need, constantly do my best every single day but still get nowhere and still constantly alone, and it has made me extremely bitter. Because of that, I don't care what happens to humanity long term. It has nothing to do with me, because I've been so utterly alienated and disturbed by my experience on this planet that I do not even feel like a human anymore.

I also don't believe that humanity provides any greater value or is striving towards any greater worthwhile goal. All this technology and pollution for what? To sustain a larger population, to go to other planets and reproduce more? Why? What is the point of endless reproduction, other than so that the wealthy can subjugate more and more people and keep more of the profits of their labor? All of history filled with people taking advantage of and doing horrible things to other people and animals just so that they can have more wealth in an endless pursuit of greed for the sake of greed and so they can feel power to subjugate others just to pointlessly feel superior. Its all a sick joke, mentally disturbed people who are handed everything life has to offer because they choose to not do the right thing and instead they choose greed over generosity and compassion and helping others who have less when they themselves have more than most people can even imagine. I literally can't fucking stand it anymore. I can't take this goddamn bullshit anymore!!

Of course this is just my experience and my opinion. Plenty of people enjoy their lives, got to have good experiences, and believe it is worth continuing. So go have kids if you want to, I don't care either way. I believe it is cruel and unfair because of my own experiences and observations so I will not be having them even if it was an option for me. It is all a matter of opinion either way and I don't believe it is worth discussing further one way or the other.

What does the end of 2022 look like?

Out of interest, I’m wondering what you think the end of the year is going to look like where you are?

I’m in the UK - we’re we are facing a perfect storm of Brexit, cost of living crisis, corrupt government, economic shock, potential war in Europe - I’m sure I’ve even forgotten to add other issues, which all seem to be coalescing into a single unstoppable force.

What’s it’s like where you live? And what do you think your pet of the world is going to look like in December?

Cheers.
