Pretty much. These people will have no education and very minimal knowledge of the outside world. But a handful of them are aces with a firearm and the men are pretty much all tough as nails.

I've always been a pleb growing up and didnt read much, but lately I have wanting to get into reading some good fiction but dont know where to start. I really enjoyed reading GRRM Game of Thrones series and looking for something similar.

I started reading Name of The Wind and am enjoying it, but its definitely a lot different. I have heard some good things about the Mistborn series, but whats the best fantasy series to read after GRRM stuff?

Just watch the tv series.

hey, neo liberal here. what books do i need to read in order to educate myself on communism? i often find myself in debates and notice that i simply don't know enough about the ussr for example to counter the "true communism has never been tried" argument etc. was thinking of starting by reading the manifesto and then moving onto kapital (although apparently it's dense as fuck). where do i go after this to get a sufficient understanding of communist theory and its applications to adequately critique it and to be able to debate it on a solid basis?

For economics, The Road to Serfdom by FA Hayek.

Why are esoteric writers so confident that the supersensible realm is benign, especially when they think it is populated by other entities?

Evola describes his otherworldly and supersensible experiences as joyous and calm. But I think theosophy and anthroposophy talk about the possibility of demonic entities, faustian shit. And I'm sure Christianity would say that consorting with any entity is dangerous, especially if that entity presents itself as benign.

Part of what Jung would call the shadow, the rejected aspect and of the self that a person hasn’t assimilated into the self. Jung believed that these contents had some sort of agency, but I don’t think he believed that a ‘spirit’ that interacts with person A can also interact with person B, because it is only a part of person A’s self. But Jung is a bit on the extreme side by saying that these contents have agency and personality. Others don’t go that far, but I think all the good thinkers believe the same things on the subject even if they use different words.
