The phenomenon of the failure to launch is often talked about but rarely do people explain its genesis or for that matter the genesis of success...

A man can only take so much failure/suffering. At some point you have to be realistic and come to terms yiu have been bested or do not have any talent.

"If you habe to try, then don't do it."
- Charles Bukowski

*perhaps I lifted this line out of his writing and took itnout of context; I still think there is a dark truth, within this line.

Demolition derbies are a fine example of chaos. Fortunately, it's good clean entertainment. OTOH, a rotten marriage coming apart, thousands of 3rd World immigrants dumped in your town, Wall Street in a panic, and a BLM / ADL riot are examples of Chaos in real life. Nobody who enters in comes out the better for it.

All truths are dark. There is no such thing as an "intellectual dark web." If it makes you feel good, it's a lie.

Chaos is better than stasis. If you are not happy with your life destroy everything and start anew.

What do you do if you destroy your foundation and then find that you lack the wherewithal to not only recover what was lost but rebuild AND realize a net gain? Stasis doesn't have to be sclerotic. Stasis can include a well-bounded dynamic that allows redistribution of stress but, NEVER to the point that it disrupts the stability of the whole. Chaos is JEWISH and Jews crave it because it creates opportunities to skim profits from shorting the priniciple and skimming on the rebuild. Maybe Nature should destroy your home and you find out your insurance won't pay. Maybe Black Lives Matter and MeToo should pay you a visit and let you taste Chaos first hand. Let's see if you like chaos that is REAL and not an abstract idea that can be bandied about in idle conversation.

@InfiniteMushroom: The stasis you speak of is regeneration and recovery. It is well and good. However when you are stuck in a mudpit of shit you litteraly have nothing to lose. At that point if BLM or a hurricane come to wreck everything it can litteraly be the very best thing that could have possibly happened to you. Do not fear chaos for it is life. Yes you can lose but you can win back afterward. It's okay.

@InfiniteMushroom: Also I have been in such a situation in my personal life before where I was stuck and had nowhere to go but down. At that point I tasted chaos, embraced it and let it devour me. What do you have to lose? Nothing. What do you have to gain? Everything. Let the galaxy burn.

@Lorgar: O.K.... I get where you're coming from. If you're at the bottom, then anything to get you out of the pit is welcome. I'm thinking of the Greater Whole which is made up of many moving parts and a stasis is necessary to keep everything working together, more or less. Classic case in point, Jimmy Carter's reckless deregulation of the airlines (along with trucking, railroads, etc). Yes, I was in high school when it happened and remember it quite well. Airlines have HUGE amounts of capital investment and obligations. They are large complex creatures that operate inside of large complex systems. Jimmy Carter just deregulated it and it all fell apart. Of course, safety and operations became dangerous because of the cost cutting and PATCO was forced to go on strike for those and other legitiamte reasons. That old idiot, Reagan, fired the entire PATCO union and untrained scabs were brought in. Cheap airlines destroyed the quality service that we once took for granted. Do you hate flying and being treated like a prisoner or cattle? It all started when the regulated framework of the old airline system was blown up, chaos introduced, and now, we are here. Be careful with Chaos! It's the very last thing you want to attempt!

@InfiniteMushroom: I agree with you. Chaos is a force to be respected and dealt with carefully. Otherwise you’ll end up as a gibbering and deformed chaos spawn. Personally I see it as a river flowing into the human mind. Those who worship stability will try to build dams to block the river only to be flooded by it. (Imperium) Those who see chaos as a candy jar will drown in it and be carried away by the flow. (99% of cultists) Those who understand chaos partially with will build boats and use it at their advantage with more or less success. (Khorne berserkers, Noise marines, Plague Marines and Thousand sons). Those who know and acknowledge it’s existence will build bridges above the river to cross it safely. (Me)

Great video. This is effectively the zoomer version of the old nag "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Of all bullshit phrases I grew up with, and there were a ton, this was always one of the most perplexing to me. I think it's really just a nice way of saying "No one cares about your problems and suffering. Deal with it yourself or die."

I have yet to see anything that takes repeated blows and gets stronger. It is one of these pop-culture trash slogans that gets taken out of context and overused to the point that rational thinking is impossible.

@InfiniteMushroom: That's the whole point. There's nothing people hate more than thinking. They'll latch onto whatever makes them look good and others look bad. It's just what we human beings do.
