Dimes and Judas run through a short greatest hits of documentary series Soft White Underbelly while discussing how to raise a child, so they do not end up on Soft White Underbelly. They then dive into geopolitical analyst Peter Zaihan and his predictions of China’s imminent downfall, while contrasting with Judas’ lived experience on the ground in China. Dimes then takes a timeout in Movie Korner with the recent releases Glass Onion and The Menu, outlining the recent trend of permitted attacks on the nouveau riche by the sneering petit bourgeoise. This builds into a discussion of the famous tract “Discourse on Inequality” by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, which provides the foundation to this anarchistic narrative trend, building the philosophical and political model of the ideal noble savage at one with peaceful nature, going so far as to position knowledge and cooperation themselves as the causes of our corrupted downfall. Lastly on this edition of The Copepranos Society, Dimes sits down with beloved The Woodlander, an expert on off-grid living and dissident homesteading. Listen to him recount his political navigations, how he built a life in the forest, and what you need to know to get into this lifestyle yourself. Everyone is gonna love this one.

The topic of raising a child is a very hard hitting one, more so if you live at a place where homeschooling is illegal.
When i still was involved with the orthodox church I talked with a lot of parents and I must confirm that It’s just brutal if you fail to teach them to behave, and you also have to constantly work against the bullshit that the school/society teaches the kid.
Helping out with a shitty kid or helping a shitty adult and being sincere about it will send you into complete and utter despair, as well as a state of deep frustration or even anger. I can’t even beginn to imagine what kind of mental hell it is if you are their actual parent and just can’t get a grip on them…
If you see a person that does volunteer work ‘n stuff you should be suspicious if they don’t do stuff like smoking or drinking, show sings of racoon eyes or seem do be a bit dead inside.
