Why do I always hear people bashing American literature? Is it because they hated English class and the way English was taught? I don't like this country as much as the next person but there are a lot of first rate American writers.

/lit/ question here

There's lots of associations with forest groves, copses and grottoes with sexual infidelity, but it's always implied to be heterosexual infidelity in the books I've seen it referenced in, never homosexual infidelity.

Considering it is only homosexual meet that meet in bushes and have anonymous casual sex, the local path to the beach here having dozens every weekend doing it. How did they fail to make the link between the copses and homosexuality back then?

Is the university and school system indoctrinating everyone into deconstructing tradition, gender roles, racial purity, national identity, hierarchies of competence, meat based diets, etc?

Fucking based. What even happened with book covers (and movie posters too)? They don't look timeless at all, like The Great Gatsby or American Psycho.

What are some good books that teach you how to argue? I try to watch some debate videos on youtube but i get lost when both parties ignore the others talking point and talk over each other constantly.

This is what i dont get i thought socialism was when the work force is the one who has full control of the capital and means of production. Shouldnt the governments job be to enforce the fair part ownership of the capital, not outright own it themselves? But it seems like every socialist state was just the government owning the capital and grossly abusing their power while claiming they are doing so in the name of the people...I guess there has never been a true pure socialist state?

Why is it cool to hate capitalism? People arent helpless victims in this system we are all contributing to it and we enjoy it no matter how much you want to deny it.

>Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT, typically pronounced as the word "act") is a form of counseling and a branch of clinical behavior analysis.[1] It is an empirically-based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways[2] with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. The approach was originally called comprehensive distancing.[3]
>The objective of ACT is not elimination of difficult feelings; rather, it is to be present with what life brings us and to "move toward valued behavior".[6] Acceptance and commitment therapy invites people to open up to unpleasant feelings, and learn not to overreact to them, and not avoid situations where they are invoked. Its therapeutic effect is a positive spiral where feeling better leads to a better understanding of the truth.[7] In ACT, 'truth' is measured through the concept of 'workability', or what works to take another step toward what matters (e.g. values, meaning).

What does /lit/ think of ACT? What are the best books for learning how to practice it?
