I've become super skeptical and I still think there isn't even a war.

The west, largely America, pushed for this war. Russia is a lite version of China and the west is looking more like a Bosch painting with each passing year but if I had to choose a side I'd pick Russia just to balance out the power between it and NATO as the latter's hands aren't clean either. Wish there was a union composed of Finland, the Baltics, V4, and Romania instead of being forced between soulless bureaucrats who hate you on an incomprehensible level and sloven cruel oligarchs who would love to outright incorporate you into their borders.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Russia used to be a free and socially mobile society due to their roots as a nomadic culture plus viking democracy until the Mongols came and killed or enslaved half the country in under 5 years. The ruling structure of Russian society then became strictly hierarchy as Asian society and many royal/noble families have/had Mongol roots. With the defeat of Novgorod opposing these changed Moscow aliens, we have modern Russia which has been tortured by the FSB to KGB to NKVD to Cheka to Oxrahna to so on.

It's just another war backed by the US and Saudi Arabia, they're causing that suffering so why tell their own citizens. Turkmenistan is never talked about in the news aside from some articles saying it's like North Korea (it's not really) because America gets a lot of oil from them.
>>3489
>boomers who still think of Russia as the Soviet Union. The greatest threat to their way of life.
Part of why this war gets so much encouragement I'd like to wager is because these people, politicians and brass, were trained to know of CCCP/Russia and how to understand, spy, conduct war, neutralize, post-war clean-up, establish Democracy(tm) for them. They know nothing else and so now the moment of their lives that was blueballed from them is finally realized and gives them a sense of job security. Same meatsacks who think (or would rather you think as stupid instead of crooks) solar panels drain the sun and nuclear reactors will blow up the planet.

basicly this gif.

even after the fall of the soviet union the imperial ambitions of the kremlin never themselfs went away.

to give the russian rethoric any credence is cringe to say the least and in the end of the day just serves as a justification of killing civillians.

Your conception of Russian history seems somewhat idealist.
>Russia used to be a free and socially mobile society due to their roots as a nomadic culture plus viking democracy until the Mongols came and killed or enslaved half the country in under 5 years.

Novgorod was more predisposed towards a Roman-style Democracy, because of its function as a merchants republic. One cannot primarily ascribe the centralization of Germanic/Scandinavic Clans towards fiefdoms to cultural factors either. Advances in agriculture allowed for a fundamental decentralization of agriculture, while gradually centralizing the ruling structure. The integration of many former merchants republics was a noticeable characteristic of absolutism, wherein the urban guilds were dissolved into centralized manufacturing geared towards export (Merkantilism).

Though it might seem a modern "Western" democracy reverses this trend, its state apparatus was in fact largely inherited from the absolutism of the 18th century. The local restrictions on trade have shifted towards macroeconomic control and government collusion with naturally forming monopolies, trusts or cartels.

What might be more readily perceivable is, that through Novgorod's annexation by Russia, the state interests there shifted from those of a trader aristocracy of wealthy families and a labor aristocracy organized through guilds towards the absolutist monarchy, that mediated between the land nobility and emerging capitalists. Absolutism acts in the interests of the latter by generally abolishing custom borders and other trade restrictions, yet still reserving privileges to the former, as can be seen by the English Corn Laws or the transformation of serfdom into debt in Russia and parts of Prussia.

This is a pretty tiny forum, not something that you'd likely find from a search engine unless you already knew about it. So how'd you end up here? I took a pretty round about path, I found Rainchan (rip) while searching random phrases on the tor network, and someone there mentioned Wirechan and Lainchan. I checked them out and decided I really liked this site. As it happened I had just watched SEL a few weeks before finding this site.

I'm also 19 with a somewhat similar story. But instead of a terminally online programmer uncle, I had a hyper-paranoid terminally online dad. He spent a lot of time shit talking the government and privacy invasion, which made me stray away from social media because of their telemetry.

Dreamt today that I was back in middle school and had an English test that was super easy but the guy sitting next to me kept bugging me and annoying me and I was super frustrated so I moved to an empty desk but then time was over and the teacher collected my empty test. I was super pissed. I don't remember having emotions this intense in a long time.

Then after some intermission suddenly I was travelling on a train and some stranger told me to hurry up and get off as we are at my destination and the train will depart soon, so I got off and it was not my destination but the train already departed. I met some kid in the uniform of the railway company that told me not to worry because my destination was at the other end of the city and he will walk there with me. So we set out but came across his bully, and he froze when he saw him and turned into some stinkbug. Then his bully tried to step on him, but like really theatrically and purposefully failing. I picked up the bug and told it to turn back into human which shocked the bully and he run away embarrassed.

The theosophical society abducted two of my ex-girlfriends for nefarious purposes, but a stepfather had a lead on their whereabouts. Locked and loaded, we were about to go make things right when an animatronic owl started speaking in a distorted voice like old time radio. Negotiations were made to avoid any bloodshed. I wouldn't necessarily call it a nightmare, but last night was much more stressful then waking life has been so far today.

Today I dreamt that we went to some vacation house that had aggressive dogs in the garden and they attacked the neighbour for parking too close to the building and then the dogs attacked us inside the house and one bit me a little that somehow cursed me and food around me turned into ash and worms and I had to go to school where my classmates would gossip about my curse behind my back but worst of all I forgot my PE clothes at home.

Not too long ago, my dreams were very unexceptional, but I'm no sure what happened within me, or around me that changed the way I dream. Anyone had any experience this?
My dreams are not premonitions per se, but I've been having more deja-vus than before, there's also the fact that I've been dreaming of things about to happen, but not in a clear way, more in a cryptic way of thought. Recently me and my friends had an incident of getting bewitched/charmed by someone else (in a bad way), and I had a very particular dream about this, as in successfully avoiding everything that was thrown at me.

>I hate the people around me
the people around you reflect yourself, even if all of them are superficial biggots, you have to become a schway OG in order to attract schway OGs.
>I hate classes
Skip them or just play the game. Its so easy to be top 10% everywhere you are, because most people dislike where they are. Just play the to their rules and make the best out of it, it will be useful to you later. Or skip the classes and develope the you yourself that will also be useful to you later. But not wanting to be where you are, being below average, playing by their rules but not caring about winning, youre being constructed for a long future as a worker bee that is used to wasting their time 9to5 in a job he hates. But not thinking about breaking out because its been like that always. Do something about it. Stop whining on anime websites.
>I cant stand being alive
Everyone has been there, life is about winning against death for as long as possible, its a fight, its a trouble, only when your life is secure you and safe you start inventing new problems because you as a lifeform need the daily struggle in order to survive, thats what living creatures do. Make your own problems or otherwise your psyche is going to invent them itself. Set goals and go towards them, whatever it is, if you invent your own struggle, nothing else matters.
>If I could fast-forward 10 years I would
You have to learn to take responsibility for your future. Otherwise go on 4chan incelboards and see where this mindset will bring you, if you dont take responsibility and grab your problems by the pussy, they will just stay your problems, even in 10 years.

Change it. Ik there's a lot to hate about life that's outside the control of the individual, but there's just as much that is controllable by the individual. Find it, and change it.
