For the Cynics, the purpose of life was to live in virtue, in agreement with nature. As reasoning creatures, people could gain happiness by rigorous training and by living in a way which was natural for humans, rejecting all conventional desires for wealth, power, sex, and fame. Instead, they were to lead a simple life free from all possessions.
Cynism, from Wikipedia.
A very cool band.

This is a placeholder to my other pages, since I am just moving from a flaky service to github.

I am in the process of migrating my old wordpress blog to ikiwiki and it is soon going to appear at cynic.cc/blog/, if all the migration goes well.

The migration, for those interested, was made by a bunch of Python scripts, many manual tweakings, and a lot of tweaking with git. I can post more precise steps later if desired.
