Will any of the future greats come from /lit/? Will historians scour the Warosu logs in order to study the culture that brought about so many great authors and philosophers, similar to the Venetian cafes in the 20th century? Is pic related us?

Universities seem to be in pretty poor shape and mainstream sites are perhaps worse

there aren't going to be future greats, society doesn't function in a way that a great literature can be written now and accepted, and spread enough to be influential.

no. this board is shitposts and /pol/ redpill attempts. any future great is either being molded in an actual academic environment, or in a group of people that don't shitpost about the same 10 books on repeat

I want to be a great writer and a great poet, and I've been browsing this board since its creation.

Yes, it did used to be much better. No, it wasn't ever GREAT. I actually miss when science fiction and fantasy books weren't all shunted off to the general, at least then there were actual book threads in the catalog.

i read literature and philosophy and come here in desperation to find valuable discussion. same with /sci/. retards unironically believe the start with the greeks meme too.

4chan has a problem with selecting a few cliches/pieces of culture it obsesses itself with, and discussing nothing else. and they're not even good. you have people treating the ted kaczynski manifesto (or elliott rodger's one) like a valuable piece of writing, instead of reading something which wasn't written by a rambling idiot. read mark fisher. or actual academic stuff. but stop pretending that knowing a glorified piece of internet subculture makes you smarter than the average normie.

Gatekeeping tranny concern troll. /lit/ is indeed shit, but calling it shit and then using the half-agreement in the average /lit/ browser's mind as a launching point to tell them to read "real" stuff, which is stuff you agree with and want to promote of course, is disingenuous as fuck.

Kill yourself you manipulative little fag. This is ironically exactly why this place exists and why it still has value, because you have no actual power here except shitty manipulation attempts like this. Elsewhere you could rely on numerical superiority, peer pressure, or direct access to the reins of power so you could ban people. People read shit like the Unabomber because of faggots like you trying to gatekeep them and shame them for doing so. You are creating your own enemy by trying to effeminately control people's minds.

You could go pretty much anywhere else and find a culture that was what you're describing, ie. following the lead of academia. It begs the question of why you would come here at all, since you're well aware this place doesn't and cannot function like that.

explain to me me why i shouldn't encourage people to read stuff I agree with/think has value, just like you encourage me to read material which you similarly think has value. i think it's more disingenuous to accuse me of trying to be manipulative just because i've expressed an opinion that's different to the consensus of this board. isn't free discourse the ideological pillar of this website?

also, i don't know who you envision me to be, other than another opinionated college student on this website. i have no 'agenda'. feel free to read your unabomber shit but don't try to convince me it's some kind of fucking masterpiece. the only reason it NYT/Washington Post published it was to stop ted from mailing more bombs to people. if you genuinely believe any piece of writing with mainstream popularity only exists as some kind of tranny mind control tool, you are retarded.

lol of course the knee-jerk reaction to my criticism is to accuse me of being a coloured-hair queer theorist. have you ever spoken to members of a philosophy department? or gone to a conference? some are insufferable, yes, and some are normal people with insightful things to say. i don't really know why you're surprised to find it's weirdos that study niche fields of history.

i agree with you. maybe i should change my expectations on what i expect from this board. the whole model of studying the humanities in academia is blindly following a set reading list, writing your essays in a format which functions like a glorified book report. but at least in the process of doing that, if you're not a retard, you pick up ideas to build on, and meet some people you can actually have interesting discussion with. can /lit/ offer the same thing? not really. I still browse (and enjoy) it for other reasons. So maybe I was too harsh.

how will i ever recover from this?

You’re killing it Danny; keep it up.

>> No.15434890

I never said they are tranny mind control tools, I said you're a tool who tries to control the minds of others because your faggot friends are all trannies.

If you're going to gatekeep, gatekeep something interesting. You're promoting "academic" books like that's some kind of magic word that bestows worth. You're a master's student who thinks he's part of the cognitive elite. Enjoy your future job curating a website and twitter account for some internet company that sells overpriced juice.

I think the people that will become famous in the current time period probably drop by here, but aren't regulars. I don't think any of the content normal users make will prove to be valuable in the future purely on the basis that corporations control the narrative and everyone and their mother is producing content right now. This whole period is going to be forgotten except for some tech advancements and will be a paragraph in a history book.

I come here because I have direct experience with how Jews and white women destroyed much of the publishing industry. They dominate as literary industries and merely push agendas. Most of them don't even know the traditions and history of the genres they like.

Honestly, I think they will study us, like they will study /pol/ for how altright developed. This board no doubt will become important for promoting the new conservative trend in philosophy and literature, where people keep reading a lot of old stuff and living in the past, instaid of creating new things, because the creative force of society is just spend. This is /lit/ and this will be the future.

They should study newspapers, because it was invented there, and only after that idiots found out it was fashionable.
