      Just about every single issue plaguing the West today. Demons is essentially a critique of wokeness (and soviet russia before it even existed)

            do you recommend that as a starting point with him?

            he produced an extremely apt summary of how communism would play out in the 20th century that turned out to be more accurate than content produced by actual communist theorists , and the ideology still hasn't been able to overcome it

            he also went into explicit detail about how nihilism would degrade ethics and disturb tho social fabric of human civilization, while kiddies like Nietzsche merely borrowed from him to build their own copes that all ultimately fell short of the original

            Dostoevsky is easily the most relevant and important thinker of the last two centuries

            also interested in where you would say to start, i’m very interested in building up a nihilism-defense mechanism that’s founded on something other than my witless optimism

            For a starting point you should read House of the Dead. It's an autobiographical account about Dostoyevsky's experiences in a Siberian Gulag. Not only is it one of my favorite works of his, it allows you to see how his later books were influenced by his experiences in prison.

            the easiest starting point would probably be crime and punishment, though personally i think it was far from his best. Demons and the brothers karamazov are probably the best from a philosophical perspective but are much more dense. if you're into that then by all means, jump straight into those

            i would say that C&P and especially notes from underground deal with a more reactionary form of nihilism, hence why the underground man ended up being the ultimate "literally me" character around here, whereas TBK and especially Demons deal much more with nihilism in a revolutionary context.

    kurt Vonnegut predicted the leftist obsession with idpol. its more interesting the he himself was a leftoid

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrison_Bergeron

    >In the year 2081, the Constitution dictates that all Americans are fully equal and not allowed to be smarter, better-looking, or more physically able than anyone else. The Handicapper General's agents enforce the equality laws, forcing citizens to wear "handicaps": masks for those who are too beautiful, earpiece radios for the intelligent that broadcast loud noises meant to disrupt thoughts, and heavy weights for the strong or athletic.

    I don't know about best, but recently I enjoyed reading The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster
    It's a bit quaint and simplistic, being published in 1909.
    But, for something published in 1909, it's also surprisingly prescient.
    Especially now, at a time when so many people seem so eager to rush into living in pods.
    I even detected some hints of AI slop there, though I was reaching a bit.
