It seems to be that your question is a misinterpretation of past philosophies and theologies.
Believing in an afterlife isn't even natural for human beings and you can check that out in the work of anthropologist who trace our ancestry to hunter gatherers. Most of them have a really straightforward relationship with death.

What you mean is the thinkers of civilizations, and that's a topic that Lewis Mumford covered in his book The Myth of the Machine. That thinking in the afterlife and all those tools like spirits and gods were used along history for... Power. You can think of that like proto-science or just trying to make sense of the reality, but to assume that all smart people of the past believed in gods, spirits, "the little people" and the afterlife is to picture a really homogeneous (probably greek or egyptian) past of humanity.

I wouldn't say "What's wrong with us modern people?" since today I find really reasonable to be critical of one's and other beliefs. Not for the sake of destroying it, but in search for better philosophical answers. If you say something exists, you better try to explain what it is and how did you conclude that it exists and, if possible, show some empirical evidence. Today we've got science that is to date our best shot at nailing some comprehension of our material realities, yet, it all exists in a socio-political context, so to assume that something is "scientific" and therefore "real" is to have things mixed.

I suggest you to check the history of philosophy, that work of Mumford that I find it to be a masterpiece in sociology that everyone should know, and if possible, maybe understand how serious thinkers think: some are believers, some are not, but a sure thing is that a conversation about the validity of some positions exists somewhere. Like Spinozas god or Descartes god, how magical thinking works, why we believe what we believe, etc.

I finally switched back to Linux as my daily driver after a couple of years of being on nothing but Windows.

I ran Manjaro Linux as my daily driver a few years ago but slowly phased it out for Windows for some reason, and I’m finally back using Linux (currently Linux Mint). I gotta say, I don’t know why I ever switched back to Windows. There’s just so much freedom Linux gives you right off the bat that Windows is just plain...

Just a clarification:

You will not be called a “bootlicker” because you support think cops are there to protect you. That’s something reasonable to believe.

You will be called a “bootlicker” because you are in support of the state, which defends the interest of those in power (aka. political class, “the rich,” bourgeoisie, etc) and its soldiers, which are cops.

I mean no harm; I’m not calling you a “bootlicker.” You are a decent human just sharing your experience. I want to bring “the other side” perspective in a friendly way. I was thinking like you until I was at the other end of their macanas for helping other decent people.

The ACAB is a widespread movement in South America and has good reasons to exist since it is adjacent to Antifa. But the overall reason to hate cops is based on the argument that I explained before in a very brief way.

Since I abide by the movement, I invite you to check it out so you can engage more deeply in the conversation. For a starter, I may interest you in:

And sorry for not sharing other voices outside the anglosphere who cover the topic. It is just that they don’t speak English, so we can’t understand each other.

Take care, fellow stranger.

That’s right. That’s the reason I shared content about why we have our position.

Why wait for Microsoft to catch up with what we've been doing for decades?

Get Plasma, a modern, fully functional, clean, privacy-respecting, non-intrusive operating system now, regardless from where you live and ditch Windows for good.

I’m with you in this one. The more I learn about internet privacy, the more I distance both.

    Found some niche communities with people who do really enjoy sharing some knowledge, artisans and artist. They have a communal spirit that makes my heart go warm.

    I leave this text here for my people who need some guidance in this “technology bad” thing so you can make more sense of things. Don’t worry, is about Social Ecology, not Tech Jesus ehehehehe.

    Yeah, is a bad deal.

    But that’s not the point, the point of this approach is that like in cooperatives, there are minimum productivity goals and many roles to play, and so on. Obviously like you point out, no one is that stupid.

    Now, consider the needs of people who are old or need help. Like helping your old man, I’m sure you don’t mind getting more apples. I wouldn’t. Like you, I would get angry if I’m the only useful one hahaha, but that what productivity and organization is for. No one lives in a bubble.

    Now… What you said, I’ve seen it happen in capitalism. Not in small businesses, normally the owner is in the store too. I mean when we talk about the big bucks like a better example. They expect you to handle of those apples, and ain’t offering you a comfy home neither.

    Sure, here are some examples:

    I think there is no reason to not lie at your resume while you are confident you can do the task. Most jobs out there are pretty BS anyway.

    I’ve got so many freelance jobs in my past this way. It is terrible, I agree. But most recruiters only care if the job is done, no matter who does it.

    You get it.

    Is just a way to navigate the corporate landscape. Most of that is bullshit, just a suit, a happy face and some specific knowledge that helps you get an edge and you are done baby. If you’ve got a portfolio, even better.

    And while we are on destroying it, making a greener and more tolerant one 😀 🍃 🏳️‍🌈

    I would suggest to, first, join your local Eco-social organizations. Normally the “take a gun a shoot a motherfucker” approach, while very satisfying to say, it’s usually way less effective than organize with your community.

    @Resonanz@slrpnk.net avatar

    The think with ‘justice’ is that’s a social process. That’s why we use pitchforks, to make sure to get that message across: there are consequences for non-equivocally evil deeds.

    Resonanz ,
    @Resonanz@slrpnk.net avatar

    Totally agree, hence, the need for organized non-institutional action 😉. In institutional terms, the difference between a bunch of eco-anarchist and eco-terrorist is pretty nebulous to say the truth!

    @Resonanz@slrpnk.net avatar

    You are right. That means we better hurry !

    Indeed. Yet, hope to live in a green and tolerant society is never dead until we “the greens”, “the anarchists”, “the socialists”, “the terrorists”, “the hippies”, are all dead.

    Hopelessness gives space to inaction, and the power to change things requires being active. I firmly believe in the people, like you, who cares and take action. Hence, is reason enough for me to keep on fighting: connect means and ends. It is possible that we’ll die and we’ll still not be where we want to be, but the mere act to organize and work on this project is to make the idea a material reality. It will make easier for more people to follow.

    My friend, let’s not give more space to hopelessness, since the work we have to do is to not let it grow. And if we can, even plant the seeds of hope like the Ejercito Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (EZLN) or Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) show us. Or even, in the case for Brazil, Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST).

    It depends, in a privacy-conscious way or as an investment? Because in the first term, Monero is totally cool for privacy. Because as an investment, en general crypto is … 😅
