Could you elaborate on what you mean by gnosticism?
>What you're both thinking of here, is nihilism
No, it's not. At least I am not thinking of nihilism. I have not said anything about my philosophical views, I have merely said that cyberpunk does not seem to me like a philosophy. I don't push everything that I believe in under the label of "cyberpunk" because it makes me feel edgy.
Aside from the adjective, rationalizations of what?
>which is why I don't object to other users' accusations of y'all at the very least being sympathetic to (neo)reactionary views
It was my first post in this thread, so your accusation is the first. Also, whether or not you gather the feeling that I am sympathetic to some political views that you don't like is of no relevance to the discussion and of no importance to me.
I would advise that you keep these feels to yourself and not try to evoke the kind of meaningless soykafstorm that happened earlier in this thread by informing everybody about your unrelated political antagonisms.
>Because I've no doubt about it; this showcases such an incredibly superficial understanding of these concepts that it really begs the question over why you identify with cyberpunk at all in the first place.
Does not follow, or, at the very least, you did not explain how that would follow.
If you attempt to offend someone's understanding of something, then it would be nice if you could provide at least semi-decent explanation of perceived errors in their understanding, instead of some worthless, highly emotional name-calling and venting.
>You decry anarchism because of its ideological tenets
I have mentioned no preference on anarchism. Neither did I mention any ideological tenets beyond the most obvious one contained in any basic dictionary definition; I have pretty much only said that there are some, and I do not perceive cyberpunk to be an ideology in the same sense that anarchism is, so it would not be precise to conflate these terms in any way.>(that which you don't understand)
