I Don’t Care: 2

Warning: This post is heavy in speculation.

AS I have said in the previous post of this series, I don’t care because there is no positive benefit to doing so. Let me take that one step further.

Would you care if every human on the earth, including you, died almost simultaneously one day?

This is a trick question as every human being is mortal and will die one day or the other. Since the world, as you perceive it, ceases to exist after your death- the death of every other human being present on earth at the time of your death or after it has no significance or meaning. Therefore, the continued existence of human beings as a species matters only as long as your are alive or can reasonably expected to live.

So let us consider a slightly different scenario.. Would you care if everybody else died before you?

To answer this question properly, one has to start analyzing whether those other people are of any use to you. To put it another way, would their death make your life more enjoyable or less? Since the vast majority of people are neither useful or harmful, their deaths are inconsequential- apart from the logistics of disposing of their dead and rotting bodies.

The people who matter to you at any given instant are those who you interact (or will potentially interact) with directly or indirectly. I can guarantee you that pretty much every single one of them won’t even miss you if you suddenly died, and this is especially true in the atomized societies we live in today.

Your only utility to others in an atomized society is as a very disposable consumer or corporate drone.

Caring about anyone or anything which does not benefit you in an easily quantifiable manner is delusionary behavior. Moreover doing so also supports systems and individuals who are constantly abusing and exploiting you.

To be continued..

    Basically correct.

    In a normal human society people are surrounded by people that in general make their lives better or at least what they are. Call it a tribe or a band if you like. These are the people that fall under Dunbar’s number, up to 150 or so. Their loss would matter not only in quality of life terms but in deeper terms. They are real and matter and worth grieving or sometimes celebrating the deaths of

    Strangers OTOH only count in a more abstract fashion.

    Modern society, a construct not long for this world creates anomie on a vast scale and as such no one matters. This is not however sustainable and people in time will either create new constructions that serve human needs or some super ,powered psycho or psychos will use the tech to force a reboot or maybe extinct the species early than might otherwise have occurred.

    I don’t agree with an atomized society.

    Which is exactly why I am a WN. I’m part of a whole. Other racially aware whites who recoinize the ideals of our race enhance my life and do things that I cannot. I may fall, but the race lives on.

    You are pushing solipsism. It is a wholly modern and contradictory philosophy. If other people do not exist, or do not matter, why write for them? Why not stay in bed all day and “dream” of worlds which are the same as reality?

    I see in this post an expression of your people. The East has always worshipped the void. Their ideal is Buddha, a man without desires, a man without attachment. In this philosophy, a begger on the street equals the highest king. A human being is equal to a grain of sand or a rock. And as we see here, an imaginary dream world is a substitute for life on Earth.

    LOL.. What I am suggesting is rather different. It is about focusing on what matters for your own well being, rather than giving a shit about what “others” think.

      Many people can’t handle an abstraction as broad as race or any other value set. There is nothing wrong with it (despite what our host thinks) but its not for everyone. Everyone save sociopaths can handle “tribe” or family however, its hardwired.

      Also one point AD is trying to make is that its all on some level arbitrary. Its unlikely the White race will outlast the Earth (we tend to squabble among ourselves so much we’ll probably forget to defend vs a comet or asteroid hit) or the solar system (FTL is probably impossible) or baring that, its almost certainly impossible to outlast the heat death of the Universe. We are smart, we aren’t that smart.

      All anyone is doing is buying a bit more time.

      Also, those big groups will often as not break hearts. What AD is saying is maybe you ought to look out for right now and screw the people who don’t give back. I think that idea has merit.

      However considering the source (AD has no love family, kin, cause that I know of) well … Its understandable. Sappy and poetic as it is, loves changes.

    oh, but you doooo care little diablo….

    anyways, I just had a thought, change your inner world/brain-thus changing your perception thus changing “your world.” Just like in a movie-your focus determines your reality…..

    I always thought “I am Legend” was a fairy tale/dream come true… except for the zombies, of course. 🙂

    This is on the money. In fact I’d say people recognize this reality more than they care to admit. People are so into pets (treating them like family and the like) for those exact reasons. An animal unlike a person appreciates and loves you. Where as most people wouldn’t care about your death in all likelihood they’d be joyous.
