Starting a mercenary corps and then evolve it into full-scale mafia is illegal in most of countries by default.

You need to get warzone expirience first and then think if it worth it.

Protip - in most cases and countries it's really don't. And being a female mafia sidekick sound weird, in most cases you probably end as prostitute.

Hovever serving in army sometimes is much better than just study for useless degree and get useless job. Simply because you could be instead of foot solider pilot for example or at least HQ staff.

Trannies are all mentally ill fetishists and not real women, weebs and gamers are not good people to hang around with and their opinions should not be taken into account ( and all AGP trannies are weebs so they overlap). Also, men trying too hard to come across as male feminists and allies are doing it because they want to camouflage or think they'll get laid with poly amorous libfems, all manipulators, and communists humanities professors are creepy groomers and rapists that should be reported for misconduct if you see them making a pass at other students.

Having kids is a fucking lottery.

After giving birth you surely won't be able to do career'n'shit for next 5-8 years, which means w/o provider-husband and supporting grannies you will be pretty much doomed and literally destroyed.

Also, most of marriages broke after that kiddies stress-test, so you got shitlot of chances being abaddoned single mom.

On the other side after kids grow up you could be pretty much careless person about future. You won't die alone in misery for sure.

Mentally ill people need to get help and be taken care of. It's whether you are responsible enough to provide them with it. I think spoilt people who only expect others to entertain them would never be able to do this and just end up being "hurt" and "mistreated".

Wtf, so your romantic partner should be your mom and take care of you? fuck no. Get your own ass some help rather than looking for a partner to mooch from and take your abuse. You are actually the spoiled one if you think like this, relationships are supposed to be mutually beneficial.

Anonymous 41084

We are talking about people with mental illnesses, they are more dependant in general and have difficulty living their lives normally. Just a question of being a little altruistic and showing some concern - it's as simple as that. But you don't actually seek a relationship to support each other rather to play around and get easy pleasures, even as you call good relationships mutually beneficial it should be beneficial for you only, shouldn't it?

Anonymous 41088

i think this >>41078 anon means something different than what others are thinking: as in, s(he?) means for example down syndrome while >>41082 means narcissism, borderline, etc.

my opinion on this circus: no adult that has the opportunity to be responsible has the right/obligation to be babied thoroughout life or be deprived of their responsibilities. period. no one is going to be mommying you 24/7, nor do you have the right/obligation to play full-time mommy and deprive your partner of their responsibilities - deal with it. that means no "oh nooo i cant workkk bc [insert excuse], but im def gonna attend this concertttt, so guuuud/play this game 8h/dayyyyy mmm i looove games"

if the person has actual problems going through life because of disease, they should seek professional care that helps them cope or heal. if you have bpd, npd, or other such problem, you should seek professional help before getting into any kind of relatioonship. if you have more serious limitations, you should seek what care is sufficcing/available so that you can lead a life as normal as possible.

if youre going into a relationship with a person who has (genuine) limitations, you should be aware of their differences and accommodate them as they accommodate you, but stay aware of the fact that no one deserves to assume a 24/7 parent/child role in a relationship that is supposed to be about equals supporting each other through life. if you get into a relationship with a person who you know has npd/aspd/etc and refuses to get professional help, youre dumb asf lmao

Anonymous 41097

I think that the concept that an intimate partner does not naturally have caretaking responsibilities as a consequence of the relationship is at least a little poisonous. And "supporting each other as equals" doesn't really cut it imho; inequalities occur, and discovery of such shouldn't give a scrot the excuse to cut and run that they're all looking for. When >>41085 says she'd care for someone who enters a condition or whose condition worsens, that she'd personally care for them, it sounds like that's being reduced to a matter of personal taste, which the rest of society has no right to judge. But a society is nothing more than a network of all interpersonal choices, and that network maintains itself by applying various pressures. We have societies and obligations to each other specifically in order to ensure that our bonds to each other support the health, wellbeing, and connectedness of the rest of the network. Men abandon their wives when those wives come down with cancer [citation: https://www.newsweek.com/why-men-leave-when-cancer-arrives-76637 ], and that is because men are utter scum who deserve to be socially hounded and excoriated unless they fulfill the basic obligations of human decency, and failing to do so should leave them exiled from the network of society–and all of its legal protections–entirely. The men who divorce, abandon, neglect or adulterate their wives when a serious condition arrives are not men who made a completely personal choice, nor a matter of mere aesthetics, nor an action that only affects themselves and their partner, a Millsian self-regarding action. Their choice affects every other connection their wives had, and legitimizing that choice affects every other connection in the network of society, and society would be right to bring the law to bear on them for it.

"Don't ever get into a relationship with a mentally ill person" is not anywhere near as obviously wrong as "abandon a wife with cancer" but it certainly looks like there is an existing, if soft and slight, social prejudice against it. The network reaction against it already exists and is visible in this very thread, and that reaction feels like more than a matter of mere taste. That every response to that reaction has had to surrender some extremely significant ground to what have been purely emotional reactions shows that this current runs, not fast, but deep. >>41088 has modified it in two places; first, that if the person is not actually unable, then responsibility for their wellbeing does not extend to others the way it would with disability; and secondly, that people have a responsibility to themselves to know and understand what responsibilities they are actually able to take on for other people. Those are great points, but points which seem likely to be held by both sides of the discussion, and therefore dissolve into neutrality. Her statement about getting into a relationship with a person with a serious disorder who refuses to get help is just an aspect of the second point; getting into a relationship with someone who has serious issues of any sort involves taking a meaningful role in their treatment, even if that treatment isn't curative, and so ensuring that the relationship depends upon them engaging with professional help would be taking on an aspect of responsibility for the other person. The relationship becomes closer to the description of "full-time mommy," not less, when the more capable partner has rules, requirements, and direction providing structure and discipline for the less capable one. And an argument that sometimes a partner is not capable of actually providing that just leads back to the idea of responsibility to the self.

Equality of responsibilities between both partners does not necessarily follow from any of that. Un-equal responsibilities have been the rule for social structures for most of history, but even when modern social researchers focus attention on the subversion of the patriarchal structure, they seem to find un-equal relationships and un-equal responsibilities are more effective for society, at least in the domain of reproduction, and likely in other domains as well: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/271536689_Why_do_some_women_prefer_submissive_men_Hierarchically_disparate_couples_reach_higher_reproductive_success_in_European_urban_humans
And it is hard to imagine that women who out-earn and have sexual dominance over their husbands as in the above study having more babies than more equal relationships, if those women were not generally happier in their relationships as well. If it were solely observed in husband-dominated relationships then that could be argued, but it's not.

Husband-dominated relationships seem like the natural and healthy form of a relationship pattern that becomes perverse when expressed in other ways. Young women who fell into the dd/lg meme would probably have had less disturbing relationship patterns than what they ended up with, if men and society alike were clear that being anyone's partner means being taking on responsibilities towards the other and being emotionally and socially supportive significantly beyond the bounds of friendship, and not just entering a financial and sexual arrangement with a drinking buddy who you like watching movies with. "Husband" might be able to signify a certain ideal, a supportive relationship partner who takes on various important social, emotional, and financial responsibilities in a relationship, and that might be the kind of relationship those women seek, but that's not what "husband" means today. Because a sexual relationship isn't supposed to be about assuming responsibility. "Daddy" is what's left. It's unnatural.

I don't believe that there is any school of therapy, counseling, or psychology which states that depression, anxiety, social avoidance, or pretty much any other non-psychotic disorder can be resolved solely through professional intervention without an existing social support network or supportive relationships outside of the psychiatric system, either.

A mentally ill one's reporting in.
I'd compare mental illnesses with a cold which could never be cured but it's not that bad, you have a runny nose and a little cough with slight sore throat and these normally don't affect your activities much. Though sometimes it gets real worse and you can't operate normally anymore, even simple everyday activities become hard af to perform. That's when medication could help and actually it can get better on its own.
But, nonregarding man or woman, there're plenty of healthy shit people who are bad for you.

The sheer amount of taxes I wasn't aware of on every little fucking thing, from reporting income (not just from a job), to just receiving money from deceased relatives. You're lucky to get a penny when every third party service is done taking a percent from you when you own a small business. Even money itself is taxed if you're in the business of numismatics. I want to blow my brains out because of (((them))). Boomers fail to realize "the power of hard work" is a meme. If you're a law abiding citizen, you'll never make a significant income bracket near what big corp owner or politicians do, even if you play all of your cards right. If by some chance you do make it, the government will just take it so your kids won't inherit shit. I also have to give a huge percent of my income, even while living abroad, in addition to whatever taxes I pay there too. Big business have offshore bank accounts all the time; over half our congress has dual citizenship to Israel. I've gone slightly off tangent, but my point being, by boomertard parents failed to educate me that, hard work, does not in fact make you better off, maybe only slightly better than your lower-middle class peers.

It's actually astonishing how difficult and time consuming it is to earn money, and how little it will be per hour and per paycheck, versus how much bills and student debt are. Let alone a real expense like a house or health insurance premiums, neither of which I could possibly ever afford. People pay $600 a month in health insurance premiums, and that's not even counting the deductible if they actually need care. A paycheck for me is around $800 a week. So almost 25% of my income would vanish to some trillion dollar insurance company somewhere and I wouldn't see a single bit of benefit from it unless I got cancer or something.

also while this is somewhat off topic i think it's important to note that not all boomers are rich, or even well off. a lot of poor boomers get fucked by the system too (i'm speaking from the viewpoint of someone in the us: you have no idea how many boomers go fucking hungry because they can't afford good dental insurance, and don't have teeth to eat with).

we shouldn't be boomers vs x young gen, we should be everyone against…whatever the fuck has messed things up to this point

Boomers did not decide the rules of the game, they only played by then.

boomers sat back and allowed things to get to this state without speaking against it or attempting to fix anything. boomers ARE 100% responsible for the current state of how fucking FUCKED we are.

Actually, they did. They changed laws that protected workers, maintained public infrastructure, and kept productivity inside the United States.

If you spent your entire early career drowning in debt, stressed out of your mind in competitive school exams during school, and all you got to do at work is file paperwork, look at people's open sores, and try not to get sued, you'd be a pretty shitty person too. The only types crazy enough to be doctor's in first world countries are those with a huge thirst for money or prestige, who else would bother with all the fences you have to jump over just to help people?

You'll die alone no matter how many people surround you during the event. The moment of death is 100% solitary in nature, the withdrawing or sudden stop of the senses can not be shared or expressed.

That is true, but there is still lots of decades before that when you would wish you had close family to take care of you.

>cancer? MS? dementia? eye failure? incontinence? parkinsons? lmao not gonna be my problem
why the fuck are people so afraid of dying? it's better than being some 89 year old sitting in a piss soaked diaper spending your days watching daytime television and looking at a wrinkly sack of bones in the mirror. at 60 you can still be fairly attractive and mostly healthy. lmao just jump off a building lol.

i've had enough medical pain and suffering as it is. i'm not giving birth and i'm not enduring old age. take the suicide pill. living to old age isn't success–it's horror and degradation. i'm going to pop off at 60 looking like i'm age 35. hell, maybe i'll commit lover's suicide with a qt 25 year old moid.

If you've resolved suicide as the best choice why haven't you committed suicide yet? You can get cancer before age 60.

Cancer isn’t a certainty, whereas aging is. It makes no sense to kill yourself out of fear of living with a cancer you don’t have when you could just do so under the event of getting it.

God in my country uni students honest to god have it easier than workers. At one point my sister got more money from scholarships (and she's pretty average grade wise) than I did working 40 hrs/week. Like, she didn't have a lot of spending money sure but tuition was paid, she got her apartment paid etc. If I was going to try and get my own place it'd cost me at least half my paycheck. Mom gives her 400/month while I pay my mom 200/month to stay at home.

What am I just supposed to go to university and study whatever dumb bullshit so at least I get my own place?

Then why commit suicide at age 60? If the problem is cancer, then the statement is "kms if I ever have cancer" not, "if I reach 60".

Sure, why not?

>Don't ever try and be a decent human being and do more than is in your contract to help your manager out. I can guarantee there will always be more to the situation than they are letting on.
I would agree if you don't want to promote, if you do actually want to promote, than there's an unstated expectation that those who promote actually take on as much work as possible. There's nothing wrong with being the lowest position in the shitpile, but you will never get higher if you don't work more than your job actually states that you do.

Just study something retard-easy and generic, like Sociology.
