It seems that everyone from everywhere of every description of every background is persistently unhappy. So we all get sucked down into the whirlpool of quick judgments, high emotions, and finding quick answers in popularly visible scapegoats, demonstrably guilty or not. This includes blacks, Islamist’s, Jews, Whites, Hispanics, etc., etc. Yet no one caught within these designations does much more in affecting a positive effect in their own favor but merely are blunted by falling in a trap. There is a very potent reason why those from less developed ‘Third World’ cultures are antagonistic, yet equally memorized by ‘white’ European culture. The experience of the well-distributed fantasy as perpetual well-being accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a modern commercial consumer culture is just too damn attractive. Why do slimline blond Nordic female’s genitals raise so much interest in all those that are raise with such different customs and tastes that they have to rub up against them? If it were merely a case of flooding in to cause havoc then there would have to be more lethal and efficient ways to get the goal of securing terrain.
It seems that there is a love affair with a universally broadcast fantasy that has equal purchase to the mind of all factions. This is of course no accident as the current time is a golden age of the transfer of media in all forms int he most immediate and easily accessible manner possible. But there is another significant factor that is common that the fantasy implies and so many who are successful within the culture of its origin fall prey too. Their obsessive focus tends to have them building their own physical manifestation of a prison in the material sense of same. If you can get beyond the politics and the entities responsible you find yourself as the most accountable conspirator in your own demise. Consider and modern neighborhood as a collection of clams upon the seabed? The general view of things is a narrow horizon from within a calcified coating built up over a long duration. Structurally, most of us fit too conveniently into small shoes boxes with picture windows with the blinds closed. Your goals in the material sense become your focus and woe betide anyone or anything that gets between you and the mental fog of societally assisted of its incremental attainment. Go through any neighborhood and see people taking on extra jobs working estra hours to maintain little museums of artifacts that do little directly to enrich their daily existences.
What occurs most fequently is the transaction of one’s weath come of time away from their family and themselves is rewarded with the invocation to want more artifacts to reinforce their ‘nests’ with. A ‘safe zone’ that they can retreat to and whose appearance supports a standing wave type perception of all their formative experiences and goals. People from any walk of life or corner of the world are self-mesmerized by what they want to see and seduced by anything that they can use to heighten that mental impression. Some in the USA buy guns to combat there fears through fantasy. Some go out with strangers with which they have nothing in common and demonstratively sign on to causes they no nothing about for that moment of assumed solidarity. Others, make an all consuming career of investing and trading stocks speculatively to build the illusion of a buffer to danger through paper based wealth. Those that focus their attentions obsessively at the cost of other human emotions end up a prisoner of their own inflexible perspectives. History seems to favor mobility and those that have a good sense of self that they carry through the ebb and flow of disasters and success’. The ongoing regular waking fantasy must yield in some measure to that chaos of trying to determining the question of the true identity of the essential self. That is something that no cultural perspective from any angle can ever provide a complete and satifying answer to.
