Good content, many nice turns-of-phrase, but you need an editor–many sentences lack punctuation or have incorrect punctuation in them. You need to read it over before publishing it and squash the typos. Also, The Man is a bit one dimensional.

But overall, I like it.

The first sentence is already awful. Don't begin a story with "this is a story about…" That's a really good way to bore a reader from the very beginning.

Sup /pen/ I dropped the /pol/-/new/ novella yesterday for all to read.

http://8ch.net/pol/res/2569046.html#2575975

The thread has the novella and two shorties posted there.

Also it is published on http://www.lulu.com/shop/cr-mcmahon/the-hand-that-holds-the-world/ebook/product-22264177.html

If you want a free epub or read only file or .mobi send me an email at crmcmahon614@gmail.com

Some feed back on it would be great.

It would be interesting to make 1/2 sheet zines of single stories. My town has a few of pic related, and I'd like to contribute some material.

Stuff that wouldn't be outright labeled "Nazi" or anything. More short children's stories with traditional tones, and truth presented in a reader-friendly way.

Pick one. Also, read real poetry, poetry with meter and not postmodernist free verse garbage. Poetry is (was) a form higher than prose (which didn't exist until, IIRC, eighteen or nineteen hundred). To contemn/shun poetry is to contemn/shun your heritage, faggot.

Hey guys, I'm going to be releasing a book via PDFs here on 8ch, and wanted to know what would be the best way to release it.

The official page is 8ch.net/tab/

(will never do anything more "official" than this)

>I will be uploading the first 5 pilot chapters and will release one new chapter every week. Weeks that have a short chapter will have more than one chapter released.

Any suggestions?

How about releasing it via PDF on 8chan, and you can upload the first 5 pilot chapters then one every week after that.

You could even release more than one chapter, if the chapter that week is short.

Or,

Framing Economic Thought: Global Control by Monetary Means

Originally

Austrian-Keynesian Dialectic: Economics as Psyops, taken from a thread on /32/ here

>>>/32/1459

This anon delved into the reasoning behind economic theory and the popularly touted thoughts commonly known to any student of commerce. It becomes clear via their reasoning that a glaring hole is left in each adversarial school of thought: the purpose and place of usury in the economic system. Anon goes on to detail the shortcomings of the varying economic "options" presented to the common man, and how, in the absence of a rational and moral stance on usury, he is manipulated to believe in the false worth of an economic system doomed to inevitable decay at the expense of his creditors.

A captivating and essential read for every man's understanding of debt, economic theory, and the criminal scum who to this day hold the world at large.

Anyone interested in writing movie scripts or story boards? This could be scripts written for real actors (dystopian diverse future, what if the Nazis had won? Or showing today's progressive society tongue in cheek)

Pic not related.

Or be written for a compiled YouTube video with a script.

I am sure there could be 8chan collaboration to produce videos

Hello /pen/! I'm reading pic related and even though I'm not too far in, I've been thinking about some things, specifically things that come about in Part 1 Section 2, "The Big Secret of Dealing With People".

In the book, the author comments that "The desire for a feeling of importance is one of the chief distinguishing differences between mankind and animals." You'll have no argument from me on that point. However, my primary question is dealing with application and utilization of that point. I know that with many of the people I have dealt with, that they would see the attempt at flattery and piling on of "importance" as a sham and might distrust the individual who tried to do as much.

Therefore, my questions are as follows:

1. Are the majority of people receptive to this type of attention/compliment/flattery?

2. How is one able to tell if an individual might be receptive to such forms of flattery? Repeated encounters? Using a few and gauging reaction? Both? Something else?

3. The book does not talk about individuals with Autism/Aspergers. Does anyone have experience with people on the spectrum and how these sorts of tactics affect those people?

4. Are folks in certain professions more susceptible to these types of flattery? I would imagine that an artist may be more receptive as compared to a given physicist due to (what I think, anyway) a person with a different type of mindset gravitating towards these professions.

Any thoughts? Comments? Thanks.

Read further, your questions are getting answered in the book.

It's not about giving poor compliments, flattery is exactly the way not to go (as you'll read later), but rather commenting on something you can truly, without inflation, see value in or appreciate - something that the other person is able to do, did, has, you'll read that if you read further.

I would argue the following:

1)Yes, but to different degrees in different ways. A cynic or a person prone to paranoia would of course see a strong attempt as deliberate and disingenuous, while on the other hand, an egoist such as a salesman would be more likely to not notice the calculated nature of the attempt or not care.

2)On this, I would say appearance is a good first gauge. Perhaps not as refined a gauge as repeated encounters, or getting to know them a bit, but useful none the less.

3)We're basically talking about Spock on this one. They're going to want to feel that their logic is sound.

4)I would submit that there is a difference between professions insomuch as there is a difference of personality type between professions. Salesmen, politicians, preachers, etc, are in general insecure people and want very much to be liked and admired as people while doctors, soldiers, tradesmen, etc, in general want their skill or accomplishments to be admired.

My two cents on the topic.

For seven years our empires favourite son

has turned from the light of our sovereign goals

two hundred years work has become undone

the forces are mighty under traitor control

half of the legions

third of the guard

uncounted regions

no person unscarred

a deadly path home

no resolution

the void they roam

no absolution

at Saturn a monstrous fleet

our brothers surrender their lives

and suffer certain defeat

by the thousands they died

the fateful news relayed

the traitors are coming

their fleet is barely delayed

no victory forthcoming

from above Emperor's speech

defend the palace

of our lord's fury teach

hearts formed of malice

from orbit canons reach

and scar the holy surface

end this madness the subjects beseech

of all the cruelty this is the furthest

the forces of greed have corrupted their souls

the enemy has landed

and the virtues they used to extol

now lie abandoned

the Primarchs they stand and with us hold the line

side by side Astartes and man

sworn by oath, loyalty enshrined

with our bodies we form a dam

fifty-five days

no ammo, no food

commanders survey

PDF made from the thread that got lots of attention on /gamergate/ and /po/. Interesting stuff. Definitely thought-provoking, even if you don't agree with the conclusions.

I'd like to see an expanded commentary on this with additional links to further reading on some of the subjects the OP alludes to.

Here is the post, with a few edits for clarification and one of the best comments in the /pol/ thread included; along with the sources.

IF we ever have a journal or anything like that I think we should include this article along with some analysis and further links provided by other anons.
