The History of "Safe Spaces" and "Trigger Warnings"

In light of places like Yale having speakers canceled because of people being “triggered”, and having the Wesleyan paper antagonized because there wasn’t a “safe space” for the opinions of coloreds on the front page of the paper, the University of Chicago made a classy move and said it did not support “safe spaces” or “trigger warnings”.

Back in the good old days, there was always a “trigger warning” for people who had mental disabilities and couldn’t function in society: it was staring at the mass grave in front of you while heard the person next to you being systematically executed by a kind rifleman. Ironically, people didn’t like the “safe spaces” known as insane asylums, which were so kind as to accommodate the people who needed such safety for the entirety of their lives.

The world has never been a “safe space”. If colored people need to have their opinion on the front page of every paper, then at the same rate the Islamic State needs a “safe space” on the front of that damn paper as well, because nobody seems to respect their ideas either.

Rather than being someone who is up in arms over how to accommodate people who are so entitled that they think every mental disability, including being afraid of or upset by written words of all things, can be accommodated in a place of higher learning; maybe people should be trying to provide a “safe space” for children in war torn countries that have to walk through active minefields in order to get to elementary school, maybe send some of those “caring” people to put some “trigger warnings” on every land mine they find. Sadly, this would actually accommodate education in both this country and in the third world, so it is unlikely that it will get any support.

If this “triggered” you, it looks like society is not a “safe space” for you and you should look for an alternative like the ones mentioned above.

Sexto Revision 7??

Just kidding!

This is as far as I got. I sorted things out roughly and gave up. No pretty Epub. Probably missing things. No editing or consolidating done. It got out of hand, and I've been quite far removed from this sort of thing for a while. It's in sad shape, but maybe a bit more accessible than trying to find and then read all the blog posts and comments.

Sexto Revision 6 + 7?

The Needs of a Nation and the Luxury of Charity

If you aren’t a nationalist you are actively committing traitorous subversion against your country and your fellow countrymen. In most other places in the world, the ideology is nationalism, and this means putting your own people and your own country before the the people of the world. By having open arms and putting the people of the world before your own people, you gain nothing, and can lose everything, as these people of the world are still nationalists, and still put their own country and their own people before your own.

This includes attempting to put your country below their own, the rights of their people above the rights of your people, the liberty of their people above your own, and the freedom of their people above your own. People of the developed world think that they have it so good, that they can extend their affluence to others around the world and they will be grateful, however, the people around the world all remember how the developed world became so affluent, through brutal and oppressive nationalism and imperialism. The people around the world seek to emulate these traits in order to emulate the successes of the 1st world, and it is foolish to think that these people want to emulate the “benevolence” of open arms.

These people will smile as they walk right into your open arms just to pickpocket you, rape you, or stab you to death. They do this because this is the golden rule. This is how the people of the world were treated by the first world for centuries, and of course they still remember. They will never forgive, and they will never forget. They will not rest until the glory of their people and their country has been restored through the same means that were used against them and painfully robbed them of their own power, dignity, freedom, independence, and sovereignty. These means of course are nationalism and imperialism.

Regardless of how they act, they are nationalists, because a human loves a country like his family, and is loyal to his country like their family. This is because a country truly is a person’s family, their genealogy and roots extend very deep into their homeland, their nation is their identity so much it physically defines their appearance. For them to abandon or forsake their country would be for them to forsake their own flesh and blood, their own family, and their own personage, mind, body, and spirit. This is a metaphorical form of suicide that few people would contemplate, only those driven to desperation by the misfortunes that are so cruel as to maim them enough to rob them of their own humanity.

While the USA may be the one exception in the world, in that is historically composed of immigrants, many of the immigrants have roots that run deep enough to form their own bloodline that is intertwined with their native land and country. Still, the USA is hardly different from the other 1st world countries, having ensured it’s global dominance and power through the cruel and firm hands of nationalism and imperialism, however much they may be disguised by the civility of the modernized forms of the traditional mindsets. This was because the founders of the country had reached the point of embittered severance with their oppressive homeland as displayed by the Revolutionary War, and through this fighting were able to establish their own heritage and form an national identity with which blood, soil, and country become intertwined.

Regardless of it’s unusual origins, this identity eventually proved to be strong enough to hold it’s own within the world. The nationalist agenda is simple: first, defend the country; second, empower the country. The reason people defend their allies is because it makes them stronger as a country, not because they “feel bad” for the people fighting in a war, or because they “Want to help.” As much as people may want to drum up arguments that any war was fought on moral grounds, this is nonsense, wars have all been fought because they fall in line with the nationalist agenda. America didn’t fight in WW2 because Hitler was immoral, they fought in WW2 in order to defend themselves against an obvious threat to their well being.

Even peoples that historically lacked a country like the Jews still had the same agenda, as they would simply look to defend their people and empower their people in place of a country.  This simple mentality can even be seen in organized crime and street gangs. This is because the mentality is one that respects the natural hierarchy of needs, first safety, then well being. People that attempt to defend all people in the world as equals are very foolish, because it is only due to the unfaltering feeling of safety that one feels in the developed world that people start to be delusional optimists thinking that the whole world wants to work together as one. People will work together if it leads to their own safety or well being, but reasonable people will not act solely on moral grounds when their actions do not benefit their own safety or well being.

The irony is that the humanists actively make decisions that jeopardize their safety and well being, and defend their decisions by citing moral grounds. This is an extremely foolish and childish reason to make a decision, because it is all risk and no reward, which can only be justified through fallacious logic that relies on feelings and emotions rather than actual grounds that can amount to a reward, such as increased safety, if one is in danger, or increased well being and affluence if one is already safe. As much as tragedy on a global scale is saddening, if attempting to resolve the tragedy is not in line with a country’s hierarchy of needs, then there is no logical reason for them to try to help, and this is why the USA and every other country is indifferent to the majority of the suffering and unrest in places like Africa, South America, and the Middle East, simply because their is no incentive to take action against the immorality.

This is the same reason why the businessman decides to go to work rather than help the homeless or feed all of the hungry children, it is completely impractical to attempt to do something out of moral means when there is nothing else to be gained, in this case, work offers money, which offers safety and well being, while moral actions do not. This is not to say that acting out of morality is a bad thing, but it is a much lower priority because it is obviously a luxury rather than a necessity. Only if all of the more important needs are met throughout the hierarchy of needs should any actions that are only justified through moral grounds be considered.

 Although the needs of a country are not the exact same as a human’s, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs demonstrates a very similar form of logic as nationalism, but on the personal level, rather than a national level. This would be a helpful chart to look at if one doesn’t understand the term in question.

Minimalistic Plotlines for the Sexto

Minimalistic Plotlines for the Sexto

Fields of Canaan and fighting in the middle east could be replaced by any theme or whatever, chose as you please. Here are a couple.

Even call it, “Pocket Confetti “ with 1 bit guys you can just say you are a Confetti God and you have to make your own confetti, it can be hard, but if your confetti can be strong it can win the Confetti Fight! It’s the same game but it’s just using Confetti as the lore, the struggle of existing as confetti. E for everyone. Even magical confetti, fire confetti, technology confetti. Amazing!

This one is a classy the Mormon infomercial plot.

Even roll it into 3d, get the ranged weapons, get the realm portal, summoning, open world PvP, simultaneous RTS in your village,  as much or as little of the classic game as desired, it doesn’t matter. As much as it may seem like DnD the dungeon master was always the dice. Single player, local multiplayer, free app, many elements can be managed on all sorts of devices, phone, PC, video game console, which could all interlink for an immersive experience. Ease of access, just lay out lots of plans and give orders over time, workers work themselves, like seeding but being able to play indifferently and not lose much, just laying out plans for broad stretches of time, build this here and all of these things in these places, make this many of that. Build your own towers, fill them with your guys, fight other peoples towers randomly trying to match the raiders as close as possible to strength to a tower they are fighting through the random find a tower orb or something one of your villagers uses, even just brawl style multiplayer from a summoning wizard.

Build your own summoning wizards and offer to summon people to your own arena, you can pray to god to make your wizard stronger, or just have a magic orb that does this. You found the orbs in the woods. You have to put them in a hat  with a rock in order to make them work, you happened to have a hat, the starting mayor has to have a hat, it happened to be sunny outside.

Amazing plot action. Wow.You can find plenty of orbs. You don’t even have to look for them, it can be cinematic, you just find these orbs in a bush and boom, the game starts. So many viewpoints because the interwoven genres have their own appeal and it allows a perspective to give depth to the game by having isolated events with few characters compared to the global fighting of normalcy. Throw in the tunnels, the towers, boom, one more color than pokemon, the character development of an RPG, town building like sim-city, military like RTS games, however much one wants to try to throw together. So much groundbreaking intricacy broad spectrum of gameplay. You can make your own skin packs and custom maps, single player, multiplayer, and online in many forms, so many games. Shazam.

Plot Lines part 2~
life RPG, make it realistic but still so colorful and magical. Be a spider, be anything all shapes and sizes.

Colorful Tree Animals, your people were spiders, web was always nice, fitting of the area. but your man was also anything that could climb a tree, because it was, two trees, your man walls were actually trees combatants can climb like ladders, and each roll width was cut into 3 pieces, rolled by 3 1d6 for each length of a square meter of tree fighter area or however, and rolled 1d6 on the other side of the tree for living, take a number of 1d6 for % of the tree in branches, or it was one big tree of any rollings, roll the dice to see how many dice you roll and roll the dice 1d6 total width of tree; 1d6 length of branches; time of day, as the branches move to the sun; location of earth, even have the trees based on real tree’s, you can even just be people, small people with the same gripping realistic physics, but just a giant tree, if you really liked people. But still this plot line would dazzle people. you are forest critters and just happen to be very productive and do all of the RTS things. Even find some stones and put them in a hat with a seer’s stone and become a Canaanite to take up arms in Canaan or you were an ocean animal ironically stuck to the floor of the sea, because the whale was dead the whole time, because it doesn’t matter that the whale was dead the whole time.

you and some tree people are walking in the woods, Jesus walks up to you says “Fuck you! Fuck all your god damn trees!”  the sets fire to the trees and drowned the world of the tree people, and the rapture occurred and the pure were turned into angles and everyone else drowned but none could escape the flooding and the angles were sea creatures and then the legions of hell were angered and possessed the dead bodies of the dead tree people and they corrupted into vengeant demons and undead fighting the angles, but because your soul always had to escape into the ocean projects where it was somehow possible to drive cars underwater, but still, you could breathe this polluted air to gain that affluence it affords, loving the city, but you recognize the building you are in with yourself with you see yourself with your eyes rolled back coming to from that big razzle dazzle of powder still around your nose as you realize you were a sea animal in the projects, you fight off these thugs trying to rob you of whatever small weaponry you could accustom yourself to, you somehow defend yourself and find yourself living the life similar to blade runner, but underwater, as there was no undeveloped land, but there was more developed land, and that quality was esteemed, it was classy to be that legit. With the motivation to live and overdrive from the powder you manage to fight off these thugs, you see Jesus coming through the walls, the men are dead, look him dead, run to the closet, and get the hat and the seer’s stone and put the orb in, and you say Jesus “I shall enslave the followers of your God and any of that care to defend them for millennia, the loss of my peoples native lands shall never be forgotten.” ; “I am God!” ; You throw some powder from around the room into in the hat and use the seer’s stone to ignite in a dark flash out of the hat which darkens the room but lasts just a second, Jesus doesn’t flinch and still glows in the darkness, you instinctively pull on your handgun, as he pulls one out from behind his robe, and shoots you multiple times before you can get your gun up, he walks up to you still shooting, he leans over you, as your bleeding out he is starts burning of fire through the blood, “Now I’ve got one more silver dollar.” and he reloads his gun and puts his gun between your eyes. “Burn in hell.” they both say at the same time, as jesus pulls the trigger and it goes black.
    “Which one were you”
    “Pick Jesus/ The sea creature; If they pick Jesus, it says “no, you were the sea creature”. “What kind of sea creature were you really? Everyone is not the Shark they think they are.
    “Did Jesus like you”
    “Yes/No, if no; “Jesus loves you.”
    You slowly wake up and you can see through the portal that Jesus came in sitting in the woods and there are a number of spheres on the ground, and some small stones around them. Still an undead sea creature, you crawl to the spheres and you put them in the hat and wave the stone in front of them and a blast of light comes out of the hat and starts to rapidly burn away the flesh of the undead shark like sea person, the balls ask you, who were you again, you can chose to live the life of tree animals, confetti, blade runner, even sports, canaan, anything. Even just go back and realize that you were sitting on the couch still, and your dead self was just in the portal, like blade runner. You tell the man to get you a lemon, and you put it in the hat, and you moved a rock about between it, and you can use the lemon and a small rock to posses the orb and then manipulate the orb. “When life gives you lemons.”  and that sphere can warp your mind to other places and other realms, find all the types of people around the land, fight a snake, fight a bird, be a spider; Arcade games, classic games, all the genres, while still having a plot line as this aquatic animal in the underwater ganglands, bladerunner was one of the far less intensive game modes, so idle time could be spent doing plenty of things, even sports, anything with that is realistic, because the animals were so anthropomorphic it was just like human society, basically like GTA with some of the Sims survival, but with Sea Creatures and magic in an expansive and lawless land with gang kingdoms or just random neutral units, with all sorts of side games. It’s more like the midwest rather than the projects, unless it was heavily populated beforehand, it could just be some sets of neutral creatures that are fairly nomadic at first, but the player could develop it overtime. The neutral AI could be restructured to stack all of their buildings on top of each other for a set amount of time, and position them right next to each other, along the street lines, this would be easy, just have every new set of a neutral units that builds a settlement, build an additional one near or adjacent to their original settlement or the founders original settlement. Urban buildings like apartments, housing and other buildings could be added on top of and around the common infrastructure of places.

 You could always wake up and just be an aquatic area swimming around in the ocean, or a bird flying in the sky, fighting other birds by the traditional means of weaponry and magic. Flying around, who doesn’t love to fly in a game, quality means of flying and fighting in the sky with birds. Synergize with the tree people and become well equipped to fight off other birds. Hand guns, bows, swords, magic, armor, magical weapons and armor, everything a bird needs to do well in the world, even just go fight tree people if you are bored. Go fight for the land armies of the classic game, anything thanks to the magic orbs you found in the woods.
    The game can have a hardcore RPG mode, with heavy strategy and town building elements where your tower combatants die if they die in the tower. The original game is pretty hardcore originally, the units would die in the field and they would be dead, even though they could be summoned with necromancy, bringing people back to live as living people was difficult and tiring. Arcade characters could just be used in the games without any sort of wandering RPG or Strategy elements, collecting rewards from combating people in the arcade. Confetti people is always nice.
