Is Berserk the most based and redpilled anime? Anonymous Comrade 03/25/2020 (Wed) 02:55:31 No. 7362 [Reply] [Last]
Let's see >Guts is a low ass commoner bastard born from a corpse, meant to die, raised in a hellish world (that's literally just the same as our own before Guts encounters any actual demons) so harsh and cruel he likely has severe PTSD by the time he's 15 >Best friend Griffith is a social climbing piece of shit who has to murder and scheme to almost make it to the top, even then the ruling class tells him to go fuck himself and he has to sell his soul to the devil and murder all his friends to finally make it >The ruling class are mostly monsters; the King is a pedophile nut that tries raping his own daughter, the "nicest" nobles were wrapped up in a brutal inquisition >The whole world is ruled by an impersonal, most amoral entity created by human will but superseding all humans, controlling their lives based on it's own whims which are of course encouraged by the worst human impulses >The thing everyone worships is literally evil itself >Even the leaders of the apostles are pawns of the Market, err...."Idea of Evil" Fuck it The godhand are the bourgeoisie The apostles are the petit bourgeois Fuck yea

I feel like Berserk had a good idea but went way too hardcore and gory just for an edgy EXTREEEEEMEEE factor
>>11538 This thread was posted long before /anime/ was created to divide up discussion from a board barely anybody uses to a board that nobody uses
>>11546 whine more, this is an anime thread, hence it goes in anime. The commie waifu thread is older than fucking hobby is and it still got moved there too. And as for "nobody uses it" anime has a higher PPH than hobby, mostly for threads originally made there.
>>7362 I think this may better belong on anime, but there is already a thread there with Berserk (though lower in quality).

Hello comrades. ITT we talk about what we are doing to improve ourselves. I'll go first: I am trying to quit smoking. This is probably my sixth attempt but I am going to try and take it more seriously this time. I have been cutting down for the past few months and had gotten down to 3 cigarettes a day but when I tried to quit earlier this week I ended up buying a pack at the end of the first day and smoking the whole thing that night out of anxiety about quitting. I am a drug addict in recovery and this leaves coffee and kratom as the two substances I can use. The kratom seems to help with cigarette cravings or at least incentivizes smoking because I feel sick when I smoke on it. I might try NRT too. I am going to try and get back into running too since that helped me get off heroin the first time.

>>10287 >Its well known that Catalonia WAS controlled by the CNT-FAI, the anarcho-syndicalists. Dude, I'm a communist born and raised in Catalonia. I think I know what I'm talking about. The CNT-FAI refused to take direct control of the territories controlled by trade union militias in summer of 1936, instead putting themselves under the authority of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Lluís Companys, President de la Generalitat, broke a compromise between the different factions by creating the Comitè de Milícies Antifeixistes de Catalunya. The deputies in the Comitè were the following: >El Comitè va aplegar representants de les organitzacions sindicals i els partits del Front Popular, encara que el predomini era netament anarcosindicalista sota les figures de Joan García i Oliver, Buenaventura Durruti i Diego Abad de Santillán. Figuraren en el primer comitè central tres dirigents de la CNT (Buenaventura Durruti, Josep Asens Giol i Joan García Oliver), dos de la FAI (Diego Abad de Santillán i Aurelio Fernández), tres de la UGT (José del Barrio, Salvador González i Antonio López Raimundo), un del PSUC (Josep Miret i Musté), dos del Partit Obrer d'Unificació Marxista (POUM) (Josep Rovira i Canals i Julián Gorkin), tres d'ERC (Artemi Aiguader i Miró, Jaume Miravitlles i Navarra i Joan Pons), un de la Unió de Rabassaires (Josep Torrents i Rossell), un d'Acció Catalana Republicana (Tomàs Fàbregas Valls) i Lluís Prunés i dos militars, assessors de la Generalitat (Vicenç Guarner i Josep Guarner). This government body controlled the militias until they were fused into the Ejército Popular Republicano. After the dissolution of the Comitè, authority was returned to the government of the Generalitat de Catalunya. The Generalitat remained in charge until the aftermath of May 1937, after which the Generalitat was discredited and lost much of its authority, and leadership was centralized under the Spanish Government in València. >Judging by the grammatical errors Not everyone in /bunkerchan/ is American, anon. English is not my first language. >you just rushed a defense of Orwell because you want to defend him for some obscure reason kek, I don't actually like Orwell. I'm a pretty orthodox ml, the policies of the Partido Comunista de España were mostly correct, if anything my takeaway of the Spanish Civil War is that they didn't go far enough because they tried to compromise with Izquierda Republicana and the trade unions too much. But I'm trying to tell it as it actually happened, and what >>9811 says is just not true
>>10289 >is American, anon. English is not my first language. My point was not that you wrote erroneously, but that you were rushing to defend an indefensible person. >I don't actually like Orwell Then why bother? Your information about Catalonians and the Generalitat is valuable, but you make yourself sound contrite by trying to say Orwell believed such things too, when he's a contradictory swine who said whatever he felt was necessary at the moment.

Orwell and his ilk are radlib LARPers who don't understand leftism but have contradictory "ideals" that sometimes coincide with them. Orwell was just a good writer, which is the only reason that he isn't as obvious.

Why do Americans have the most retarded interpretation of this film imaginable? Anonymous Comrade 05/08/2020 (Fri) 17:49:15 No. 9288 [Reply] [Last]
Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!" Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes? The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

There's a new Snowpiercer TV series that's about 6 episodes so far, anyone seen it?
(655.08 KB 1580x1538 1421975511783.jpg)
>>10844 >gotta make a series out of everything
>>10845 Snowpiercer is one of those things that can only work as a feature film. The premise is obviously so ridiculous and allegorical that any attempt to stretch this out to a drama show that wants to be taken seriously is bullshit. I can suspend my disbelief of a train encircling an ice planet for a movie when I see that it's a social critique. I can't not do that for 20 fucking hours of television including personal drama or whatever. Also, 100% they throw the anti-capitalist notions out the window.
>>10845 Capitalism, milking everything dry and dead.
How would you rate this film? I give it an 8/10, with some points lost because of some inconsistent themes.

Cats Anonymous Comrade 06/28/2020 (Sun) 06:19:33 No. 10931 [Reply] [Last]
Do you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it. I really wish I could communicate enough with animals to explain how technology works sometimes, or how certain things are dangerous to them. It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches, or if we could design VR video headsets with games that cats would like to play.

>>10931 >but aren't interested in mirrors I have seen cats hissing at their own mirror image when it's a large enough mirror that reaches down to the ground. Also it might be that if the cat recognizes it's self in the mirror that it looses interest. >They also have zero understanding of computer screens If you show them video that was recorded low to the ground, from a similar point of view they would have, they get really into watching screens. >It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches You can do that, you just have to make switches that grab their attention, you know that switches we designed look tempting for humans and invite us to touch them... You have to do design with cat cognitive ergonomics in mind, cats like pull on strings with fluffy things attached to it, they also like to shove tiny objects with their paws, so a long sideways mounted paddle-switch with a ball on the end, near to the ground, would probably also work.
this thread is shit
>>10931 Peter Gabriel (yes, that one) has spent the last decade trying to fund an "Interspecies Internet" through which humans and bonobos can communicate. https://petergabriel.com/news/the-interspecies-internet/ Brian Pern isn't a mockumentary, it's a documentary.
I'd just like to add onto >>11013 and >>11021, other than the mirror test being anthropocentric to the point of being bullshit it really does depend on the cat. I've got two cats who completely understand what a mirror is but they're not interested. These two had issues with screens and speakers at first, but they figured that out quick and will watch action movies and nature shows, and figured out how to open a sliding door (but they were too weak for the lever) as well as a round knobbed door within a week of encountering them at a few months old, plus a bunch of other shit they have no business understanding. They even understand a surprising amount of English compared to other cats. I think most cats are only inquisitive about cat stuff, while others like these two are more curious about the world. To be fair these two are Siamese which are different.
