Alright 4chan /lit/erati,

Old /lit/ has died— to those of us who have browsed the board for years, it has become apparent that the quality of the board has decreased. One can blame this on a number of factors— the introduction of /pol/ to halfchan in 2011, an increase in the number of younger and less experienced readers into the folds of /lit/ (and 4chan, generally) over the years, the introduction of general threads, the exodus from /lit/ due to the creation of /his/, the influx of genre-fiction related posts, etc…

Ground rules for /litpat/:

The focus of this board is literary fiction and philosophy; please attempt to focus on these two subjects. Other subjects up for discussion: psychoanalysis, economics, sociology, hypermedia, visual art, architecture.

No political posts unless they involve academic political philosophy; if you post far-right political thinkers out of context, you will be temporarily banned. If you post far-left political thinkers outside of the framework of academic political philosophy or socialist realist fiction, expect similar treatment. This does not mean that fiction writers with fascist or Marxist tendencies are not up for discussion; just do not try to promote political views. Discussion of political philosophy is encouraged; active promotion of such philosophy is not.

Anything that smells of /pol/ shitposting will result in permaban.

Put explicit porn in spoilers or the file will be deleted.

Writing/critique threads are actively encouraged.

Only Gene Wolfe posting is acceptable: all other genre-fiction posting will result in a temporary ban.

Hey guys. I really like this board. And I realize we're really not the posting kind. How about we post in this thread once everytime we check the board, with whatever comes to mind? That way we can keep the posts-per-minute a little bit up and maybe a nice discussion pops up from time to time

Took me a few years but here you are

"

Erst

Cultivate your madness. The first thing there is to know is that normalcy is undesirable; one's got to escape from normalcy, avoid it by any means, sacrifice whatever is necessary. First, no one is truly normal. Everybody has this mask they so carefully polish… and you can see them: pulchre, delightful, they are so normal and besides they're so happy, they're doing everything so well and besides they're doing wonderfully, everything is so beautiful and perfect… and you, with your problems. When night falls, night falls, and you are forced to stare back at their faces, you're lying in bed and it's time for you to fall asleep, but you have to stare back at your demons, because no one knows them as well as you do; nobody like you knows what's inside of you and what you have to deal with […]"

yes, but only bigger art, ie architecture, but mainly comformity degenerates people, and conformity isn't side effect of capitalism

and lack of beauty; children should grow up in inspiring, timeless, beatiful environments

When you don't know what beauty is, when people directly or indirectly tell you that their shitty lives are merit of beauty, cities and houses and whatever they are living in are beautiful, et cetera, et cetera, then of course you will be shit being not worth calling yourself human.

btw it looks awfully digitalish

A couple of years ago I started to play D&D, I was really bad at the narrative aspect, I was terrible at coming up with characters or plots. I managed to overcome that but but I still tried to read common sci fi and fantasy to seek inspiration but I could not get into it.

Anyone else feels this? Having a hard to enjoy or even getting into genre fiction? On the novels I've tried I never read more than one chapter, it always feels so hollow.

And his main objection was that DeLanda did not write in a specifically political goal-oriented muh minorities way, and called him an "entrepreneurial Daniel Dennett".

I believe if it's non fiction the first chapter is usually irrelevant and thus it could be ignored.
