26/M. Can someone recommend a book on how one would become an alpha fucking male? I'm too generous and nice. I want to learn how to not give a fuck. And how to talk to women because I have absolutely no game.

I think that this approach is just going to set you up for more hurt and frustration. Don't try to be alpha. Instead, embrace being a beta and learn how to make it work for you. (Assuming, of course, that you aren't a gamma, zeta, theta, or one of the other rarer types.)

Hipster Slut 14/12/08(Mon)08:41 No. 17368

I've been studying how to become an alpha male and it all seems to boil down to being the highest value male, i.e., have the most wealth, status, and best looks. It's pretty much exactly what the mainstream consciousness defines as masculine. If you're the most ripped, most wealthy, best looking man you will naturally be alpha. The alpha male personality will flow naturally as long as you are the highest status person in whatever context. People will judge you on your personality, but your personality will only be in a good "state" as long as you are healthy and driven toward your goals. If you read too much PUA stuff, as I once did, you think that confidence is everything, and it sort of is - but it is based on tangible things like status and looks and money. The main thing you need to know about talking to women is that you can tell any made up story to women and even lie about your job and anything else! that was the biggest boon for my game and once I realized that everything sort of fell in place. I would recommend the mystery method, I've red a lot of pua books and the MM seems to have all you need to know. I've spent way to much time reading pua materials, and I would have been much better off if I'd have just read that book first and then applied it for a few months.

Here's an idea: stop using terms like alpha and beta. You are not an animal that needs classification, you're a fucking human being.

Hello.

I need my fix of good literature because only recently have I stopped flooding my head with that fraud that is called philosopy.

Since I'm spanish and I'm counting with the fact that many of you are not pretty much anny suggestion might serve.

I'm looking for a good lighthearted adventure like Stevenson's or a raw, crude, careless one (should I say "morals free) like Blood Meridian or other Mcharthy novels.

I do not have a problem at all with touching any subject.

Inmersive novels are very welcome too, since I'm also leaving my videogame and procrastination life and thus i need good material to start exercising my imagination.

I trust you good taste!

Hipster Slut 14/11/19(Wed)00:10 No. 17360

* Philosophy
* "morals free"
* McCarthy
* Immersive
* Your

My keyboard doesn't write properly and I'm a bit rusty too. Surely you will forgive that.

I forgot to mention that I absolutely do not want any novel that was shat by any "philosopher" or "thinker", whatever that means.

Thanks.




20th Century History books General thread Hipster Slut 14/11/06(Thu)03:32 No. 17352 [Reply]

Note: I apologize if the "attention grabbing" picture in this post offends anybody, I will explain why I used this picture at the bottom of this post.

This is a thread for books and (youtube) videos on the history of the 20th century, focusing especially on the period of chaos and world-wide warfare that started with the Russo-Japanese war in 1904 and ended with the fall of Communism and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact in 1991.

I would like the focus of this thread to be on what professional historians call "Primary Source Documents", which means the books were written by people who were actually there and were actually involved in what was happening at the time. So good examples of the kind of books I'm looking for are:

(1) A book on World War 1 or World War 2, written by an actual general or soldier who fought in WW1 or WW2 (ideally explaining things such as the cause of the war, why they were fighting, etc).

(2) A book on a political doctrine written by the founder of the doctrine (i.e. a book on Stalinism written by Stalin, a book on Fascism written by Mussolini, a book on National Socialism written by an actual German Nazi, etc. etc.).

(3) If the book isn't a primary source document itself, then its ok as long as the book has lots of scholarly footnotes and citations that can lead you to other primary source documents.

The book in the picture in this post is a book on economics that was written in 1919 by German economist Gottfried Feder, see:

>>17352

Ok, attached to this post is an actual pdf of the book by Gottfried Feder that was alluded to in my first post (like I said before, I think reading this book is key to understanding the causes of World War 2).

This pdf book used to be hosted on archive.org but I think Hasbara attempted to take this book offline to censor it, and I am against the censorship of books (regardless whether the author was George Orwell, Gottfried Feder, or anybody else).

So I have attached a pdf of the Gottfried Feder book on "Breaking Debt Interest Slavery" to this post. More primary source documents on 20th century history (maybe some books on Marxism or Communism or American style liberal democracy and capitalism) will probably be uploaded in this thread later.

Who cares if a picture offends someone?
I will never understand why people are like "sorry if you don't like it but I'm using it anyways LOL"

Like it's necessary to apologize if someone got offended for something do little and dumb anyways.

Hi /lit/, not too sure if this is the right place to post but would any of you with a good grasp on literature critique my personal statement for university? I'm studying programming, web development or application development so it's meant to cover all of those bases. I already had to butcher it somewhat because of the character limit. Thanks for taking the time if you do :)




Since I was a child technology has made such great leaps in advances, and I had always watched on in wonder until I saw the computer workshop that my Uncle worked on in his spare time when I was 10. He showed me that there was careful work, design and planning behind every example of technology I used that I hadn't even consider beforehand, and from right then I wanted to follow that same path. My love of technology has been encompassed in many aspects of my life, from playing computer games, getting my first PC and learning how to code, then finding a love of web design. I have always been a keen problem solver with a creative mind, and seeing his ability to sculpt and modify sophisticated programs just from manipulating lines of code alone got me hooked on the subject. As a budding programmer and designer, I want to be able to help mould the future of how we interact with the ever growing immersion of technology. I have always believed that cooperation is one of our most valuable assets, and would like to eventually be part of a small creative team of specialists developing on all platforms.

After High school, I went on to college where I took a BTEC in IT, and then went on to complete an extended diploma in graphic design, furthering my skills in IT, Web Development and also developing my creativity at the same time, also gaining experience with different operating systems. At the time I was interested in visual kinds of coding, and became a competent HTML user, and eventually was exposed to various forms of Javascript, SQL and other sophisticated programming languages. I also found an outlet for my creativity and particularly enjoyed designing GUI's, photography and illustration. During my time at college, I began working as an assistant in a retail chain selling video games. During my time there I developed a greater understanding of marketing, quantitative and research. Afterwards, I moved onto medical administration, where I played an interdependent role with various duties.

Outside of my work life, I have continued creating websites for a hobby and sometimes even a profit, and continue to read up on the subject to keep in touch with current trends and advances. I'm an enthusiast computer builder, and have built many of my own rigs and also some for friends and clients made through a small personal business I ran during my time at the NHS, offering advice, securing and utilising parts and offering entry level website pages for small business start ups. I also have a few side hobbies Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Keeping in mind I had to shorten my original write up by about 1800 or so characters, I'll most likely have to use this as a base to write it from scratch. I think the shortening has made it somewhat retarded in places.

Thanks for checking though, appreciate it!

Seriously?

Your writing is a clusterfuck of unnecessary prepositions and aux verbs. You said you already butchered it, well what the fuck did you cut out because it's still crammed to the brim with filler. Find someone over the age of 25 who isn't a total dumbass to proofread it for you.

Hello, /lit/. I'm desperately looking for a certain pdf. It's the holy grail of manipulation/people reading;
Chase Hughes' Behavioral table of elements and alle related documents.

I wouldn't have asked if I didn't look through most of the internet first. I even tried asking niggertits for crying out loud. There also doesn't seem to be an /r/ board on this chan.

So, I'm probably risking a ban here, but the reward is definitely worth it, and as I said. I'm pretty desperate at this point.

Please let me know if there is anything I could dump in return. Occult maybe? I could also dump funny images, but that would be off-topic and knowing the mods it'd get me banned for sure.

tl'dr I need this thing

Yes and no... You see, Japan is real but it's capital city, Tokyo, is not. At least, it's not what you've been lead to believe.

Tokyo is actually a moon colony, buried beneath the moon's surface on the Bright Side.

The Shinkansen system was initially an ordinary bullet train, bit since the Bubble Era, they were converted into mass-driver launched spacecraft. Every window is equipped with an extremely high definition screen to maintain the illusion of coasting through the countryside at a speed significantly less than you are actually moving (the gradual acceleration is deceptive).

It may seem like a lot of trouble to launch an entire metropolis of people to the moon and set up elaborate deceptions--even portals for aircraft entry--but there really was no other way.

In the early 90s, Japan discovered point-to-point teleportation in the midst of an economic boom, yet still the costs and materials were too precious for practical implementation. Then these... things came through the soft places product testing had made in the barrier between our worlds.

Original Tokyo was overwhelmed. In a matter of hours, half a dozen wards were smoking rubble. Then it stopped. The hero remains unknown, but survivor accounts told of last-ditch nuclear engagement. The cold-war cache, buried--by Nixon--in a secret silo in Hokkaido, finally saw the light of day; and exploded with a flash times brighter. The portals collapsed and all EM activity for ten miles out went static.

Out of the Silent Planet by C S Lewis is a good place to start. It is the beginning of a trilogy, with Perelandra and That Hideous Strength.

If you like good hard scifi that's not too inaccessible in the language department try Ring by Stephen Baxter. Pretty much anything in the Xeelee sequence is fantastic. Vacuum Diagrams is a great place to start if you just like a collection of short stories.
