Are there any books that deal with a criticism of hedonism and the "if it feels good, do it", mentality that do not rely on religious moralism or gut feelings?

>Make an entire ideology about criticizing unfair power structures
>Also think that professors grooming underage girls (or boys, in the case of Foucault) should be ok
Also if you allow that to happen, then the moral basis for any age of consent is no longer applicable and you will eventually end with pic related.

I used to eat dry cat food as a child, to the point that my mom noticed our cat was losing weight and she found out that i was eating the cat's kibble.

Can you give some good examples on what a midwit really is, and what opinions a midwit might have?
And can you give any examples where the dumb masses and the very intelligent think the same, but where the slightly above average have an entirely different opinion?

It seems like all the major philosophers weren't actually philosophers. So if you want to make it big in philosophy, you should study anything other than philosophy, it seems.

I just finished Journey to the end of the Night, and im looking for more openly misanthropic novels. While no one will probably come close to Céline, i'd also love it if they were able to joyfully describe this misanthropy, much like Céline did.

It's like looking back on the misery of the world and then saying 'mega lolz'
