Kissu should learn lessons from Diogenes of Sinope
That is all.

 No.575

behold, a man

 No.576

Bah. This is defamation. Everyone knows Diogenes has no need of books, or globes, much less CLOTHES.

 No.578

>>576
Ah but Diogenes wouldn't worry about how he's portrayed, because he's beyond the need to worry about materialism.

 No.579

>>578
This is true, but such a portrayal sullies his image, and casts an improper display for those not familiar of his enduring legacy.

 No.580

>>579
Why worry what dogs of little virtue dictate to you?

 No.601

The /jp/ dream.

 No.602

Nope, not for me. I may not need to live in luxury, but things like shelter and food is pretty important to me as is keeping my mind busy with stimulation

 No.612

>>602
The real lesson that should be extolled here is that virtues come from action, not by reason and words.
Diogenes just took it to the extreme.

 No.613

Honestly, kissu as a whole should learn about the ideas of stoicism too.

 No.619

>>612
Diogenes was a fucking hack. How can you act virtuously when you have no means? And how the hell is defying social norms compatible with virtue? Don't even get me started on how the dude preached self-sufficiency yet literally chose to live as a beggar.

>Diogenes was a fucking hack
Ah, so Alexander the Great was a hack too for holding him in a high regard then no? How about stoicism, the people that trimmed the ideas? Fuck let's not even get into Christianity and how monks and the idea of living an asceticism and trying to reject worldly/material things was heavily influenced by cynics and the ideas of Diogenes, no he's a "fucking hack."
>How can you act virtuously when you have no means?
If you have to ask that question, then that means you lack the fundamentals to even approach this subject.
>And how the hell is defying social norms compatible with virtue?
Again, because people say shit and they don't actually believe it, in the times of the Greeks, Diogenes would rip the shit out Plato's reasoning, showing that it's faulty.
>Don't even get me started on how the dude preached self-sufficiency yet literally chose to live as a beggar.
Yeah because being a beggar was the lowest rung in Greek society. A slave at least had a master that tended to him, but a beggar was beholden to no one but the kindness of strangers and their goodness in them that would allow him to live.

 No.667

>>620
There's some corrections that need to be made here:
It's ascetics, not asceticism.
