I dislike most of Ayn Rand's writing, but one of her concepts that really appeals to me is her "sanction of the victim." Is there an equivalent to this in any other philosophies or writings?

>I am writing a book, it's a work of fiction. Basically it takes place in 2050 America had just elected it's first dictator who is part of a socialist totalitarian party after a terrorist attack in Chicago where a nuke went off. Once elected he banned the constitution and he then dismantlement congress. I have only gotten about 15 pages written so far but i need some fresh ideas. I think i want to have a civil war started kind of like a 2nd revolution to overthrow the dictator.

/lit/ video game thread? These are always the best. I just finished pic related recently. It's a functional game that has a surprising amount of attention to the more controlled, intimate moments between Joel, Ellie, and the travelers they cross paths with. That optional conversation about the ice cream truck was wonderful. Thoughts?

Bros, need a good military book for a friend. Not some propaganda bullshit, just something that would make sense to him. He was in a line of humvees that were RPGd in Iraq, he was the only survivor of 7 men. He saw the body parts of his newly adopted family of men, (some of whom watched eachs others backs for multiple deployments already) strewn around him on the ground as he struggled to pull himself to his feet and eventually recover. Hes become very depressed being back home, I need a book about something similar to his situation maybe.

I finally got around the reading The Stranger and I was incredibly underwhelmed. I really liked Camus in Myth of Sisyphus, why was this work so unprofound? What did the rest of /lit/ get out of it?

In regards to "maximalism" Can I write a thousand or so pages of marginally related stories based loosely on the same topic, then flip them out of order, doodle in the margins a bit and pretend it's some profound social commentary to get published and make mad money?

Judith got her mole removed, Deleuze had long fingernails, Althusser's eye-sockets were so craterous that you could eat cereal out of them.. Why are continental philosophers so weird?

Did most Roman emperors/ancient leaders really look like that? Appear to be as depicted in busts and whatnot? I always assumed that a number of them were pretty narcissistic like Caius Julius, Augustus, and Commodus. Is there any work of literature that actually describes them all as they really appeared? It seems to me that a lot of the shit written about them during their lifetime was pretty biased. >Tfw you don't know what to believe anymore. >Tl,dr: Was Augustus really all that attractive? Were any of them really as they appeared in busts/paintings?
