degenerate pothead doesn’t even comprehend what the article says

decides to attack the person who exposed his degeneracy rather than refute the degeneracy itself or to stop being a degenerate

Yep, par for the course. TAKE NOTE, FOLKS. The release of dopamine in the brain is tied to a reward system that gives incentive to instinctual elements of the body to chase something. For example, in sex, orgasm makes you feel good. Therefore, you make the effort to seek it through reproduction. Otherwise, we’d end up like pandas. Eating feels good, so you seek food for now and later. Happiness feels good, so you seek things that generate it. In the environment where man was adapted to live before fire was mastered, this meant to get that reward you had to apply the effort needed to achieve it. For reaching orgasm, you needed to reproduce and secure offspring. For food, go hunting or create a system like agriculture. In essence, this reward system is just that: a reward–or incentive–to accomplish that which would benefit you through other means. Hedonism in itself is maximizing that dopamine rush while minimizing the effort or sacrifice to attain it.

It’s no secret that people can gain a tolerance to the release of dopamine after constant or overexposure to it. With current technology and social structures that reduce effort to near nonexistent levels compared to history, people have begun chasing dopamine ever harder. The barrier of effort to make one stop chasing it remains irrelevant. The closest thing to dopamine, conceptually, is heroin addiction. Hedonism in any form is unnatural, as the purpose of your body’s reward system’s is to give you an incentive to undertake the effort required to attain the release–not skipping the effort altogether. In the case of pornography, the brain subconsciously thinks you are so “skilled” at the normal, healthy process of courting and reproduction that you can have any woman mere seconds after getting the desire, even though that’s not the case. Sex work, too, is a venue for this reward system to be skipped entirely. Just save up a few bucks and you’ll have the dopamine rush without effort whatsoever. The most degenerate societies have a huge amount of sex-related work; the most iconic of which was the Weimar Republic. The presence of sex work can also be caused by a desperate shortage of employment that makes people sell their bodies. There the issue is even worse, because you have both people willingly skipping the reward system and others reduced to prostitution due to having no other work. Does this mean everyone is innocent? No. Some have no self-control and discipline whatsoever, even if they are aware of the situation. Hedonism is half unawareness and half lack of self-control and discipline. At the core of hedonism is the unwillingness–even fear–to face the bad things life throws at you, trying to overcompensate for them with dopamine rushes. No matter the source of hedonism, it’s a cyclical process of the hedonist indulging himself, coming down, and then working solely to achieve the next high. Nothing exists save the temporary rush of happiness.

Socially, economically, and spiritually, hedonism has vast arguments against it, and the only argument in its “favor” is “I just want to feel good.” You’ll notice how a hedonist will take any argument against his behavior as a personal attack, subconsciously. That’s because hedonism is an inherently individualistic idea. A hedonist doesn’t care about anything but his own happiness. By calling out his behavior, you become an obstacle to that. By defending others who engage in hedonism, he is primarily defending himself.

Way too many degenerate stoner losers on voat.

And you dumb numbs can't figure out why you are going extinct.

It's because you violently defend your own and promote the degeneracy of others of your own kind as if you are doing something worthy.

Rather than violently attack the enemy.

You deserve what is happening, has happened to you. You've got no one to blame but your self. 'MUH JOOOZ' did not do this to you, you did it your own faggy self.

There's no such thing as an alcoholic. That is a derogatory made up by 12 step cults to strip vulnerable people of identity/sense of self in order to indoctrinate them into the cult.

And he knows this probably because he's also jerking himself off everyday. Honestly, I've never understood these degenerate burn-outs who need to take a hit simply to prepare themselves to face the world everyday. Get a clue: if your life is that fucked up, one bullet to the temple can take you on a journey that no level of pot-smoking will ever accomplish.
