Yes, the Social Engineers want to prevent you from identifying a trend, a specific segment of society; they want to force you to identify a specific
If you're trying to call me a hypocrit, you need think again.
There is as far as I'm aware no such trend of individuals forcing anyone to do anything of that nature.
But you need to understand even if it were, like all trends it would A) be context bound, and B) be fluid (evolving) and therefore temporary, like all
trends. C) Trends are thoughts and actions, not people!
It's true that some trends are only exhibited by specific social groups. What important to understand is that only when a group identifies itself by
such a trend can it be said that that trend is part of a groups identity... It gets pretty complicated when you get into the nitty gritty of the
social science... But i remain convinced, its not a science. And I can use logic to prove why.
Even when you have a group of people lets say Muslims for example.... Muslims have beleive certain things, and maybe sometimes exhibit certain
behaviour trends exclusive to Muslims... But to what extent those beliefs and behaviours constitute the complete identity of any given Muslim no one
can claim to have any idea about. Not even if you ask Muslims? Why, because you're asking them based on the fact that they identify as a Muslim as the
primary marker for appropriating the extent that they are or are not a defined by their religious faith, when there are 2 billion Muslims in the
The point I'm labouring over is that essentially no matter what observation you base your generalisation on, ie Muslim society is patriarchal, even if
you sample size was tens of thousands strong, you still would be faced with the fundamental reality which is that the identity of those tens of
thousands of Muslims is tens of thousands of times more complex than the conclusions you come to about Muslims based on that study. In other words
it's a false paradigm that encourages people to think in terms of divisive caricatures.
Maybe someone can refute what I have just said, but I'm tired, so I'll look at it again tomorrow.
