  • Social superorganism. Sorry I took so long to respond.

    You can also infer it from the first post, in which I said I was just going to abbreviate Kingdom, Republic, Nation, Empire etc as "State".

    Probably sphere of influences will appear under more dominating powers, they'll be tied with them with weak ties. This will likely be the case if USA breaks the monopolies and algorithm oligopolies, it will make them more prospered but they will have weaker grip on others. Monopolies and oligopolies allows the state exercise their power on others more harshly.

    If they lose that they'll be better for their citizens but due to power loss to some degree they'll have weaker grip. It's kind of what Zeihan implies but for other reasons and in a different way.

    I don't think the situation is so unstable. We are talking about big, old, complex machines, full of moving parts. I may have "too big to fail" syndrome, but I think we won't get revolution, just a series of reforms. The beast is too heavy to jump very far.

    So it was an existing cultural thing, a racially coded niche. Then unrelated invention allowed it to become more viral, then the wider public liked how hardcore it felt, and it started to spread. Some aristocracy of gatekeepers emerged, telling people what's cool and what's not from magazines, alter websites, what's the TRVE music, what's pop hogwash. And at some point they sold out and we are where we are.

    You're well knowledged and interesting way of thinking. I like talking with you it's enjoyable and there is always something to learn.

    Its veerery dependent on my mood in a given moment, because I shoot from the hip a lot, just write down a stream of consciousness without checking it it makes sense. And I think most of my Codex posts are during work time, so it depends on how mad I am at my bosses asking me to do stupid shit that I know I'll have to change next week.

    Ама какъв е този германоид който си сложил за аватар?!?!

    Still in-between avatars, I guess. Picked this one because I like Prussia and due to the fact that it was PJ's older avy. :M

    If I knew where to get the leader avatars of HoI IV as to add them to the 'dex, I'd probably go with Georgi Dimitrov.
    I think I sold one or two magic items that I found in the crypt. Other than that, you can get a nice amount of money by just sellin stuff that hostile NPC's drop.

    2020 years since the birth of the false prophet, and his pupils still project their homosexuality unto others.

    I'm at the office, pretending to work, and pretty bored. Nothing else to do, basically. Its either fighting lost battles on the Codex and 4chan, or actually being a productive programmer, and FUCK THAT.

    Did you really play any of the old Fallouts? There has to be something seriously wrong with you if you think pop culture references are the main backdrop of Fallout 2. Gritty, 'lifelike' approach to worldbuilding was always the main pull of the series. Its just that 1/4'th of Fallout 2 is retarded. They made it in 10 months. Play Fallout 1. Fuck You. (You really triggered me, nice trolling)

    I've played all the Fallout games, and I prefer Fallout 1 and Fallout 2, if only because of its control scheme and more reliance on character skills.
    However, pop culture references are to Fallout 2 what Americana is to Fallout 3/4, at about the same scale, and I much prefer the Americana stuff.
    Stop being an NPC parroting the Codex script and form an opinion. If you circlejerk all the time you'll go blind.

    No. Bethesda misinterpreted Fallout's 1/2 setting, and americana is the effect. Retro-futurism / social-engineering / pulp sci-fi setting of Fallouts is probably not so easy to read for a dumb person, and knowingly or not Bethesda simplified it to produce a swing-y, coldwar-y, comedic bullshit. It may have been a good business decision cause people like dumb, easy to approach shit, but fuck them for that.

    Видело се е, че не ни върви с морета, когато ни се докосне пипалото до второ море и веднага се свиваме. Може да е алергия. Да си седим при черното езеро.

    Ама се е видело,че и в съюз или управлявани не става. Все кой ни се прави на шеф вече го нема. Същото ще стане и с великия европейски кенеф.
