Conflict with Social Groups And the Individual

Postby xhightension » Wed Aug 15, 2018 3:30 pm

Sensationalism in the media and film. Atrocities happen everyday, and we see them on the news, social media, and film. The herd, the masses consume these sensations like food for the tragic part of their individual lives'. Radical feminism use sensationalism to force empathy to polarize the crowd to choose sides; Racist politics use sensationalism to force empathy upon the moderate-liberal view; Gender-identity politics is gaining steam in the background trying to reach the forefront of our minds to side with the new snowflake generation to be ultra-sensitive or to be polarized as dated, narrow-minded relics stuck in the past.
There's a tug of war at stake and I'm here sitting at my computer attempting a conscious thought of compassion. Where are thou, compassionate people? Forced empathy upon us is compassionate on a hyperbolic scale, as seen on Facebook or the news, but garners a war separating tribes. My TRIBE IS BETTER THAN YOURS. NO IT ISN'T TRIBE IS BETTER - this is the over-arching circle, the idea of making the world a better place. Fucking animals.

Rational-compassionate comes to mind. Character building from from individualism - separated from tribalism - but in small groups of interrelated individualism.

Deconstruction of the system would be too violent to reset the system. I believe the game can be curtailed by means of consciousness. Individual level - through a web of thought, like rhizomatic roots, gaining steam from the ground-up.
Top-down authority gives you impunitive-ill advised priests who sustain themselves' through the essence of its hierarchy.
I'm not trying to be smart. I'm boiling inside with a big picture mind.
Keep smiling, people will want to know what you're up to

160,000 humans on earth die a day. Yet over a couple tragedies of 4 dead people in the news everyone loses their minds. This is the ipod generation of weakness, and hypocrisy.

Sure 140000 out of billions what is that in percentages? Not even one hundredt's of a percentage point still, living. But that could change hypocracy into a curve ball real quick exponentially into the linear repeat: To be or, not to be.

[quote="Meno_"]Sure 160,000 out of billions what is that in percentages? Not even one hundredt's of a percentage point still, living.The point is the difference between 160,000 and a handful is very slight compared to big jumps, that vary upwards to millions through billions, like saying that casualties of major wars, which demonstrate the idea of the unknown dead-being more palatable to the average person then looking someone familiarity close, or famous that means a a lot to that average person.

Sensationalism also has a function to symbolize a particular issue , bringing it to conscious realization of possible larger scoped human loss of life. But that could change hypocracy into a curved ball real quick : denial of relevance exponentially, demeaning the numbers into perceptually in qualifying ideas, reducing it into one dimensional hype.

Yes, but there is no reactive return to ideal systems, because of the process of self induced individuation qua simulation, is irreversible, again because self induced 'freedom's' offer the only current procedure/process by which socialisation can become the interlocker. The politization of correctness of it is a second tier stamp of approval developing into the key to the gate of guarantee. that the precision and insurance against any leaks be locked.
