Pessimism — the devaluation of life — is a protean creature. At times, it disguises itself in the desert rhetoric of the Abrahamic books. But pessimism also lurks behind secular philosophies and values. Whereas not all religions are pessimistic, not all pessimisms are religious. God might be dead, but pessimism is alive and well.
For instance, this seemingly innocent question was posted a few days ago to askphilosophy:

Anti-natalism is a contemporary iteration of pessimism: a nefarious marriage between genocidal fantasies of revenge and what Nietzsche calls "the religion of pity". (The Gay Science §338)
I have dedicated the best hours of my life to the most beautiful and the most wicked fantasies. Yet amongst the most wicked of my fantasies, I hardly find myself wielding "the power to end all life". Who fantasises with "the power to end all life"? Who needs "the power to end all life" and why? Perhaps someone who is tremendously disappointed in life and therefore feels the need to avenge their disappointment by murdering all the children of the future: a philosophical Herodes.
This Herodes, however, needs a good conscience. Since his zeal for vengeance and reckoning would be intolerable to most, it must be rationalised: it must be moralised. And what better way to disguise a strong desire of revenge than dressing it with "good intentions"? The old God of Abraham lives in those who wish — even if only for a fleeting moment of weakness — to partake in his omnipotence and end life with apocalyptic deluge of "the best intentions". Whether religiously inclined ("sPiRiTuAl") or downright atheistic, the anti-natalist wishes to abolish suffering once and for all.
Abolishing suffering is perhaps the oldest of fantasies. The Epicureans, convinced that any afterlife is a silly illusion, strove to abolish as much suffering as possible by leading an ascetic life with like-minded friends in a garden. The Christians, haunted by the vertigo of our finitude, chose to endure suffering in this life by imagining an afterlife free from suffering. The Buddhist, resigned to the fact life is suffering (the First Noble Truth), decided to abolish as much suffering as possible by renouncing desire. The political utopians, appalled by the plight of the oppressed, invented a future world where public policies and new power dynamics would abolish suffering, not for a select few like the Epicureans and not in the afterlife like the Christians, but in this life and for everyone.
To all of them, Nietzsche writes:

...if you refuse to let your own suffering lie upon you even for an hour and if you constantly try to prevent and forestall all possible distress way ahead of time; if you experience suffering and displeasure as evil, hateful, worthy of annihilation, and as a defect of existence, then it is clear that besides your religion of pity you also harbor another religion in your heart that is perhaps the mother of the religion of pity: the religion of comfortableness. (The Gay Science §338)
When Nietzsche decried pity as vice instead of praising it as a virtue, he was not condoning psychopathic brutality, as shallow readers would want us to believe. Nietzsche thought, instead, that the great danger of pity was the weakening of the will: the gateway drug to pessimism. Anti-natalist can barely endure their own suffering, so they believe the rest of the species should also renounce life. And if they fail to persuade, as they usually do, they fantasise about "a magic button" that annihilates us all, but only "for our own good". For them, suffering is "bad" (schlecht) and even "evil" (böse); for them, suffering is undesirable and even immoral. And since they cannot longer fathom a God who justifies and gives meaning to their suffering and the suffering of all men and women, they become godlike in their futile fantasy of ending suffering forever.
For me, the antidote to their pessimism is Nietzsche's gaya scienza:
How little you know of human happiness, you comfortable and benevolent people, for happiness and unhappiness are sisters and even twins that either grow up together or, as in your case, remain small together.
For the creative spirit, suffering is not something to be feared, suffering is not a token of virtue, suffering is neither "bad" nor "evil". Instead, creative spirits find that suffering is an inevitable means towards creation, whatever their creation may be. Like the Buddhists, Nietzsche understood that suffering was inseparable from life. But unlike the Buddhists, Nietzsche invited us to embrace suffering as a symptom, as the necessary fatigue that strengthens those who dear to venture towards new horizons.

2021.12.02 21:18 FrauAmarylis Im 46. My mom wouldn't stand up for me when my Stepdad threatened to "Skin me Alive" last time I visited. Does this stuff happen to you as an adult?

It was the last night of my (46, F)uneventful visit, and I was holding a cup of WATER and walking into the living room. My stepdad (62M) said in a mean voice, "If you spill that, I'm going to SKIN YOU ALIVE!" My mom and I froze and looked at each other. I replied, It's just water. And we continued into the living room. A bit later I stopped my mom alone and told her that what stepdad said was a threat and totally toxic and abusive and that of I wasn't flying home in the morning already that I would've left and gotten a hotel room. Background: mom has been physically abused by him (I would come home from college and call the cops on him for beating her)over the decades and just does all the typical codependent behavior of telling me to ignore him, not to upset him, etc. When my mom married him I was a teen and bounced around living with grandparents instead of living with them.

2021.12.02 21:18 Mr_Lightspeed98 CoinMerge Token: Chat, chart, swap, and more all on a single platform | Earn ETH and BNB rewards based on volume! | Doxxed Owner and CoinMerge LLC is a publicly filed business in the state of Texas | 4,234 member TG community and growing fast!

Business Case:
CoinMerge is a new Crypto Currency with newly trending Tokenomics as well as a Utility platform that launched on September 30th. The two tokens on ERC-20 and BSC-20 offer unique Ethereum and/or BNB yields on all volume, respective to their Blockchain. Holders enjoy rewards not only from volume, but also ad revenue, our NFT marketplace, CEX and DEX revenue through a partnership with DAR, as well as a "blue check" audit service.
The business model puts all six of these revenue streams into buy backs held by CoinMerge forever, raising the price floor and reducing supply, and half of that buy back is deposited back into the distribution contract paying those reflections directly to holders.
The CoinMerge Platform is the Flagship Utility function. It is designed as a single website where users can track charts, read raw Crypto data and transaction histories, as well as have access to a robust, multi channeled chat room to connect with community members all on the same page. There are plans to combine the functionality of sites like DexTools with the Community engagement of Telegram into a single website. What is more, through are partnership with DAR, users can use the same platform to access their CEX and DEX to swap fiat to tokens, bridge ERC and BSC, swap tokens for tokens, and all for much less in fees than other exchanges would even consider.
CoinMerge has a doxxed owner, Matthew Goodhead and CoinMerge LLC is a publicly filed business in the state of Texas. And like any good business, CoinMerge LLC has a business plan to generate revenue outside of our holders and investors. Like many sites and online services, CoinMerge has featured charts and banner ads for other tokens and communities to pay for advertising on our platform. The benefit to holders is that CoinMerge will only accept ERC/BSC CMERGE as currency for ad space, as well as other services like the NFT marketplace and auditing service.
Holders never have to worry about CoinMerge LLC selling its own tokens. Just like a regular holder, CoinMerge LLC earns ETH and BNB on the tokens held from these revenue streams, and that ETH and BNB is what is used to pay for developers, coders, marketers, staff and more. CoinMerge LLC will NEVER sell their own tokens because they simply have no need to.
This means with every source of revenue generated on the site, the CMERGE supply is permanently reduced, the liquidity cap and market cap are permanently increased, you receive direct reflections, and this means YOUR CMERGE is now worth more as the price floor increases.
CoinMerge is not just a Long-Term Utility Token. CoinMerge is a Technology LLC and is here to change the Crypto Sphere entirely.
White Paper:
· https://www.dropbox.com/s/uyktepbsb9vl091/CoinMerge%20Whitepaper%2011.2.pdf?dl=0
Tokenomics for ERC and BSC:
· 5 billion supply, fully diluted at launch
· 100% of liquidity locked in Uniswap and Pancake swap, respectively
· ERC 8% tax per every transaction as voted by the community
· BSC 10% tax
Proportional Redistributions:
· 4% yield in ETH and 3% redistributed into CoinMerge project funding on ERC
· 5% yield in BNB and 4% redistributed into CoinMerge project funding on BSC
· 1% redistributed to active members as community rewards on ERC or BSC

2021.12.02 21:18 lokoangel48 Lets make BF4 have more players than BF2042

I'm redownloading battlefield 4 right now once again, they say the best time to play a multiplayer game is when it releases because it is at it's prime with a high number of players, and as we know BF2042 already lost a big chunk of it's playerbase in just a week.
I bet if all the people who wanted to play a battlefield game just play a couple of matches on Bf4, it would have more players than the new one in just 3 days. Which will make for some funny headlines like : "Battlefield 4 playerbase massively increases with the launch of Battlefield 2042"
