Orthodoxy has ?????
Hmmmm. I can't think of anything. What does Orthodoxy have? Also Dostoevsky is adolescent literature so he doesn't count. Is Orthodoxy intellectually bankrupt?

Any books about why consumerism is good? Consumerism bad takes seem to usually come from reactionary politics or edgy teens that are from well off families. I would like to hear new takes other than durrr the destruction of the western civilization.

There are no bad emotions. Depression, resentment, hatred, love, joy, anxiety, etc are all good. Denying emotions is bad. Trying to save yourself from life by denying resentment or passive emotions is bad. Life is not a problem to be solved. There is nothing to save yourself from. The more one feels, the more one experiences, the better.

Any books about this?

Do you think it's possible for someone to write a thousand-page epic poem in a mixture of English, French, German, Latin, Greek and Hebrew, with a lot of really obscure words in all five languages, AND for it to be good?

Why reread books if you can't add them to goodreads and increase your number of books read? Or do you read a different edition each time and add all of them so you don't waste your time?

tourist from /tv/ here, should I start reading "The Wheel of Time" books before watching the show? I'm a casual (slow) reader who has read and loved the A Song of Ice and Fire books, but that's it when it comes to fantasy. I heard the books are set in a matriarchal society ruled by witches and the author has the same fetishes as I do; but if I'm going to read a book, I'm not just going to for the porn, I'm also for the worldbuilding, politics and cool magic stuff.
