How to play chess properly.

Not in a cheesy way where it’s like oh-I’m-going-to-start-living-my-life-different. No. Absolutely not. I do not deal well with cheese.
It’s the beginning of a new chapter for this blog, and after a long hiatus, too. Originally the blog was created with the intent of sharing rants generally - if I may use the term - philosophical in nature. However, I came to the realization that philosophy, while intriguing on its own, cannot come to life in my mind without its proper subjects; that is, the humans. It appears that my favorite topic of conversation, despite all the misanthropy and cynicism, concerns humans after all.
Therefore, the posts will mainly concern 1. what I “read” (to use a personal term) from looking at people. What do they look like? How do they dress? How do they talk, act, laugh, convince? Those all give excellent clues as to what kind of a person he/she may be, I believe. Moreover, 2. What types of behaviors on your part would benefit you the most? I’ve had quite enough of those idiotic cliched self-help books throwing around generalized sentences like “love yourself!” “be more confident!” “socialize more!”, so I’m going to see how socializing and perhaps manipulation works for myself.
A new project it is. Let’s see how long this lasts.

Slightly less calming Korean Indie music.
…it’s sad that I’m addicted to this song.

Idiocracy is false - given the dynamic of the genetic pool, people will not evolutionarily grow to be more stupid. However, people will grow to be more clever, cunning, and brilliant at trying to use each other. Morality may exist, but it will be worth less than it is right now - which is not much at all. Empathy may exist, but only as a superficial shell of what used to be, existing merely to be employed strategically. We may not see an intellectual collapse, but we may see a moral collapse.

It’s always extremely irritating to realize that you don’t matter that much to the ones who matter to you.
“PIPA and SOPA are not oddities, they’re not anomalies, they’re not events. They’re the next turn of this particular screw, which has been going on 20 years now. And if we defeat these, as I hope we do, more is coming.”
Get ready, people. The battle is not over yet, and the war stretches on indefinitely.
