    Yes there are many people are desperate to latch onto ancient wisdom and employ them as 'techniques' to find dignity while they crawl around on the floor eating garbage. We call them Redditors.

    Kek me when I was 16/7. I remember telling my dad how I don't need anything because I have Stoicism.

      I'm reading it right now. It appears to me as a moronic piece of rhetoric written to win debates at those gay orgies. In other words you seem mad.

    It's a fun read, but why would anyone want to live like this? Maybe it can be useful if you get into a concentration camp

      Exactly, It's rhetoric meant to be used to refute anyone who opposes the status quo, as before as today. I've known homosexuals "proud stoics" who acted like this shit saved their lives only to see them justifying how corrupt modern society is only so they could engage and be popular with normies. Soulless trash.

        Nah not rhetoric, but a doctrine that for saving you from pain closes yourself completely in your own head and teaches you to become a hermit from reality. Pretty much cutting your dick off to avoid getting rejected by girls

          It doesn't save you from pain and even if it did wouldn't that be applicable in many things?

            What things? The aim is avoiding psychological suffering by distancing oneself from it, from the physical one and from the whole external world. I'm just at my first read but it's what I'm getting from it. I believe Spock from Star Trek is very close to the ideal here, and it's something that someone would desire if he saw nothing but pain in his future

            This is better said until the nothing but pain in his future part, that's a bit dramatic

            Why would you want to abandon everything in life except from spiritual growth?

            What about your interpretation? The philosophy boils down to abandoning all struggle. Because it tells you to only strive for things that are "achievable for you" by threatening you with possibility of psychological suffering like it's the worst thing that could happen in life. It's basically a handbook for NPCs.

            There is no thing like "knowing what's in your power" in the world. Of course you should discriminate and value which things you should invest your time to but moat good things in life are more or less a result of random chance. Only a fool deals in absolutes. A recipe for food life is doing something which you are good at hoping that fate will smile your way. Of course fate needs to be enabled by your proficiency but it is no guarantee for success. However stoics pretend they know better and that things in the world are either fully controllable or not worthy or pursuing.

            No, Epictetus says nothing about fully controlling what's beyond you

    Its very simple
    If you don't care about Epictetus, you were never depressed.
    If you like Epictetus you're over your depression.
    If you despise Epictetus, you're still depressed.
