This is a discussion on The Tide of Humanity within the Articles forums, part of the Announcements category; Great post!...
Continue guys, i'm just reading !
I recommend that anyone concerned with this epidemic read Jack Donovan's the Way of Men.
In my opinion, necessity, not meaning, has become the creeping norm. It is not necessary that you have an identity, any strength, or heritage. There is a common scourge among nationalists and communists, and most people inbetween, and that's the notion of the business profit. It's a dead, cold, idea that strips you of your worth as a worker, or your meaning as an individual.
Business profit is why global trade preys on undeveloped countries - and why you're rejected on grounds of hate speech. It doesn't care about what you believe in, who your family is, who you vote for, it just wants to keep on churning money. What do you get? Small bursts of dopamine, pleasure, to try and satisfy yourself.
People are plenty willing to demand something for them. But they rarely lay down themselves on the line (which is partly why hackers are so successful, because they can get quite a lot by manipulating the tools of modern civilisation instead of risking their entire lives). And right now, I'm willing to admit I'm one of those people. I don't want to give up everything I have for the things I believe in, because I have people who care about me in normal life, and honestly?
We're not raised to fight, climb, struggle, anymore. We are raised to work and enjoy ourselves.
I'm not calling everyone in this thread, the forum, or the internet to action, to throw down the shackles of civilisation and torch their nearest government building. Balance is a thing.
I just think it should be entirely necessary to rethink the entire way we live our lives, before we or future generations regret it.
the tide of humanity, is a festering stinking mess, but floating on top is the cream of the crop that makes life worth living
It's been stripped away for the sake of making you work alongside the other masses easier. Perhaps I'm not wording this correctly, but I know I'm not wrong, because most people don't have a real place in life that they can say they belong to.
I'm surprised this is a debated topic, but here we are.
