Honestly I’m gonna start this off by saying that in it’s current state, the world is annoying. Simple as that. You can’t eat, breathe, sleep or talk without someone somewhere giving their opinion on what they would have done better.
Now don’t get me wrong – there’s nothing wrong with sharing opinions and what not, I’m all for free speech – but when people start portraying and believing their opinions to be facts then there lies a problem.
I addressed it in my last post regarding the Echo Chamber, but at this point the problem is turning out to be much bigger.
We are living in a world of problems and complaints, but no solutions. We are living in a world where people would rather find a negative needle in a positive haystack than acknowledge your good deeds.
The way the world is today, people will help you build a castle from the ground up only to cheer and watch you burn at the slightest bit of disagreement.
People are afraid to voice their opinions at this point in society – everyone’s losing jobs, family members, friends over the fact that they want to be able to express themselves freely without being publicly and socially persecuted for what they say.
It’s so easy to get attacked by wild nig nogs for saying even the most slightly “offensive” comments, because people these days seek to be offended. They’ll twist your words around and read things you never even said in an attempt to play the victim and gain sympathy from other people.
People are so afraid of being called racist and misogynist and homphobe that they try to mask and sugarcoat their language to try to go under the radar, but that rarely works. These buzzwords are so quick to get thrown around that they have no real meaning anymore.
You think you tweeting angrily at someone who actually has a genuine dislike for an entire group of people for 10-15 minutes straight and trying to “lecture” them will do anything? You think it’ll change their mind? Get them to stop? Wrong.
People worry way too much about micro-issues that aren’t directly affecting them instead of the macro-issues that are. That’s why police brutality is a more talked about issue than black on black crime or unemployment. People hate to admit the faults and wrongdoing in their own communities, amongst their own people – but quick to comment on everyone else’s.
Racist, misogynist, homophobe and the like at this point are all just boogeyman terms, used to scare the person they’re being used on into submission and silence.
The real racists are being lumped in by people who make “offensive jokes” and whatnot about race, and the real perpetrators of these attitudes are slipping through the cracks. It’s a Boy Who Cried Wolf situation at this point, and when the wolves come everyone will be too busy dealing with the imaginary to focus on the real.
Cognitive Dissonance and ego-fulfillment is real. It’s easier to call someone a buzzword, virtue signal for help and then lock yourself in an Echo Chamber behind a block and feel valiant and noble. It’s easy to feel highly of yourself for sending some tweets to someone condemning an action, but what is that really gonna do?
Y’all are quick to bring up the KKK as a viable threat in the U.S. as of today, but the last recorded lynching by KKK members against blacks was over 30 years ago and the attackers were convicted for it, and one was executed. Besides that the numbers of “KKK Attacks” in the last 30-40 years have been very rare, and definitely nowhere near the number nor brutality of how it used to be back when they were a serous threat.
Wouldn’t this be progress? Well, when liberal media is stuffing the big bad KKK boogeyman down your throats every 5 minutes (instead of, you know, that one terrorist group that actually kills people and blows things up) people tend to overlook this sort of thing.
You see, the way people are these days they read headlines and skim articles and if it sounds like something they can agree w/ they’ll blindly go along with it.
Cognitive Dissonance makes it even worse because they refuse to either believe any contradictory information presented to them, nor seek it out themselves – and many people with bad cases of CD don’t know they’re afflicted by it.
People aren’t confident in themselves anymore, and as such see other people in the world who they think believes they are superior, to actually be. I walk around everyday confident in myself and what I can do, and would never let an opinion or some negativity stop me from my grind.
I learned that you can’t expect everyone to approach life the same way you do. Everyone hasn’t seen the things you have, they haven’t experienced the things you’ve experienced, they don’t see life through the same mental frame that you do – that’s why people afflicted with the Victim mindset I feel bad for sometimes.
But at the same time you can’t help everyone, and people who live in the mindset of oppression and inferiority are destined to stay in that exact lane. If you want to be a Victor, start thinking like a Victor. If you want to be a Victim, live in a Victim Mindset. It’s simple.
Blacks tend to not be able to release the hold of the victim mindset because it was ingrained into their conscious through text books and social studies class that always cast us in an oppressionated victimized mindset, but very rarely presented the stories in a way that made us seem like the victor.
To be a victor isn’t to ignore the facets of our history, rather it is to acknowledge them but also to understand the reality of the situation – that we’re past those times and with all the opportunities we have in this day and age you’d be a fool not to get out there and work for what’s yours.
People tend to see the mirage at the surface of the water but wont dip their feet in to see if the image is real or not.
People tend to judge books by their cover, instead of peeking inside and seeing if there’s reason to validate your beliefs.
People tend to hate to be wrong, so they’ll cloak themselves in their faulty beliefs and block out anyone who says otherwise to “save themselves the stress”.
This all sounds like people who have trouble interacting with other people in a healthy manner. If we can’t have conversations with people and share differences of opinion in proper civil discourse, than where will the world end up?
If you don’t have the ability to have Control over your emotions so that the world isn’t able to halt every single step you try to take in life, in the culture we’re facing now, you’ll turn into the type of miserable, ‘yes-man’ needing person that is intolerable to so many people of the world.
In the end, if you learn how to master your Control of your own self, you will never find yourself being controlled by the outside world.
I’m sure you don’t want to be a puppet, do you?
