well driend,it seems as though i'm one of the few that read your post(s) in it's entirety!
i totally agree,and ive noticed this 'trend' in social conditioning for many years.
and,yes,it is working perfectly 'en masse!'
more so in the last 10 years or so with all the social networking,smart phone tech out now.
the media was the perfect tool for the cloning of our society,and dismissing of our core,family values.
every one has the need to feel 'special',but not so far from the mainstream to be called 'weird'!
we all have the longing to be wanted,to be accepted.
for instance,my sister has a blackberry(as does all her friends-because thats what everybody has!)
me and my parents have 'ghetto' cell phones that make calls as good as her blackberry.
but in her opinion,we are so 'out of the times' to her,she just thinks she is automatically more 'worldly' than us!
we have constant 'discussions' on a variety of topics.
i have to add that i am very much more read than she,and it infuriates her when i use my intellectual prowess against her dime store theories!
so,in her narcissistic rage,she will attack my lower income,lack of the latest material toys and such.
it bugs her more when that attack doesn't affect me,and it actually saddens me to know she has to make monthly payments on all these 'UN-necceties.
she bought a 50" plasma t.v. for $2000,and she just had to rub it in my face.
a month later i was at the dump and seen an older 50" flatscreen t.v.,and i bought it for $20 . the guy said it didn't work. of course it didn't
work,it was missing the power cord! so i put a new one on,and it works fine!
when i showed my sister,she got so mad at me! "well thats 10 years old!" she screamed,but i said "it works as well as yours!"
silly thing is,i rarely watch t.v.,and she knows it!!!
but your theory is sound in my opinion,and i do see the fall of western civilization,right before my eyes!
like the rage song you posted - know your enemy!!!!
i do,ind i live by it!
