There are socialist, capitalist, monarchical, democratic, anarchist, ecological, feminist, patriarchal, egalitarian, hierarchical, racist, left-wing, right-wing, reformist, free love, nuclear family, extended family, gay, lesbian, and many more social constructs. And yes out of the death and destruction of the world wars there would arise a Phoenix from the ashes of previous cultural ideals.

The success of anything needs a foundation, without it we only have fragments. Wonder still exists among the decay, and one must seek to build upon all that has come before, but
Utopia does not exist.
Despair and angst by choice are no solution, and when they dissolve the fabric of sanity, then they become abhorrent.
I believe this display is what we are seeing, but what's worse, some are encouraging and indeed designing it.

MoonBlossom, Your insights enlightening.

I love your little bat

I have seen this in real life, although in very small doses. I just clap for a great performance for my amusement. You see.. everything is a snippet to so many people now.. little snippets and in the public. Facebook, youtube, vine, vlogs, liveleak.. all the worlds a stage and all of them are performers. You only see so much of it DUE TO social media. We see a lot of acting out.. or just acting.. but very little true and heartfelt genuine emotion. Turn the cameras off...the tears dry up and the show ends.

I dont even think its a bad thing.. or a good thing. Its just a thing.. like all generations and times have. What the truly bizarre part is that these actions and "things" are catered to by universities, schools, etc. THATS what amps up the hysteria and better on camera performances. I do believe there is a certain percentage of them that are just deranged. The people who are indulging this sort of thing are only harming the truly unhinged of our society when they should be helped and not used or made a spectacle of.

I blame it all on Alan Alda and Phil Donahue...
