Everywhere i look around me i see people yelling at everyone in their cars, pushing people around verbally at gas stations, grocery stores, and everywhere else. People have this general attitude of being better then everyone around either due to finance or due to thinking they are more intelligent. I see it from poor people, rich people, kids, adults and old people alike. Its almost as if a spirit of super ego has been embraced by our entire nation.

At one point in this country we used to care about each other. We used to stand for something honest and hard working. People cared about the community they lived in and the people in it. Now people practice what i call cannibalism. They eat the person below them to fatten their wallets. I believe this is apart of the modern corporate culture where your loyalty to the company is paramount to your responsibility to the person next to you to be honest and trustworthy.

What happened?

Whats happening?

Its changed so much in my short lifetime.



Please give the time span this utopian society was in existence. I'd love to know more.

SO, I spent (Not at my choice, but my families choice) Christmas in CA, more specific at Disneyland.

We also drove around CA.

WOW!!!! No wonder people in CA think the world sucks, is mean, people are rude and that everything is unfair.
CA, much like Chicago is a crap hole.

The rest of the US is not like these places.

Where I live, people don't drive like CA people. There isn't the crime levels like in NY and CHI.

And as to why people don't care anymore???? Because the Govt has taken over the compassion world and helping people. That's why.


Hello this is my 1st post. I do agree with your statement on CA.

I live in it.

"Psychopaths are made through environments and home influence. With exceptions through genetics, is probable."

That word is a generic term. There are more then just 1 type.

Sociopath is another term. If you don't know the difference please look them up.

I for one, know I am an antisocial withdrawn individual. I know what I am and accept it. Thriving from others misery is wrong, sure. But, if you are not like some. Then you will never understand. Why would I rather see the world burn? Because it would be entertaining and I'd just might relish it.

/shrug

Awaiting your comments... From a self proclaimed psychopath/sociopath.

Say what you wish.

America has fallen unto the bankers and is being rationed....its all about survival at this point. They are exploiting the very weakness in us that they created. Its that simple...survival suggest your kid gets fed or mine. This is what we have subscribed to and this is what we will endure, unless someone can beat the banks like Andrew Jackson did. Until then, we are all screwed. Yeah you Bankers...Andrew Jackson whipped your @sses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

It is because we have traded God and moral lights for materialism, trivia and the endless river of evil that flows out of Hollywood. The world has become so morally inverted that it is almost a crime to show a brand name on CNN, so they blur it out, yet the station has no problem with adolescent, voyeristic images of scantily clad women on their site nor is it seen to be wrong to show Anthony Hopkins eating a living person's brain with a spoon (Hannibal Lecter). The worst savagery on TV is ok but woe to him who reveals a sacred brand name...

Mankind has lost its spiritual vision and is becoming encased in a carapace of materialism.

The gene myth is everywhere. Psychopaths are empty souls who resort to evil to make themselves feel alive. TV glorifies evil and psychopathology. Evil is a corruption of life that they have chosen because they cannot, or won't, have true life.

Thanks for your words..

Unbelievable that these things are happening. I tend to belief that this distructive change is brought to us by design. Distroy the family structure and it will reflect on society. Things will be lost when people think that this behaviour is normal and start not to care anymore.

Where does all this porn on the internet comes from anyways..? It has become close to impossible to shield children from being confronted with it.

I don't have an answer for everyone, but in my own mind a lot of these negative qualities we currently exhibit go back to 1987 and Gordon Gekko's: "Greed is good." (from the movie Wall Street, for you youngsters, LOL)

That snide little maxim has become the paean of several generations now.

"Be successful at any cost."

"Money and material things are the only things that count."

And maybe the most important thing:

"Do unto others before they can do unto you."

What I see generically is the overwhelming tide of small undeveloped egos gone cancerous. The only things we care about are our individual personal selfish needs. To hell with everything else. This is paradoxically coupled with a lack of personal responsibility for the outcomes of our never ending quest ... it doesn't matter what happens to other people.

If I make money on a business deal, and I put 50 people out of work in my city, well, that's just tough luck for them, isn't it? That doesn't affect me, does it?

Wrong. We have lost touch with the fact that we are all part of a larger organism. I am aware that sounds new-agey-tree-huggy ... but it's really not. Nothing we do as individuals is possible alone. We live and move and have our being within a greater infrastructure.

I guess, in a way, we're all spoiled kids. We have glorified the indulgence of petty short-sighted desires for so long now, I'm of the mind that it will take a great catastrophe that FORCES us to work together cooperatively again to turn the tide.

Your mileage may vary.

And we are isolated, back in the day the people went out and socialized more, we are stuck in front of a TV, computer, Iphone and tablet, myself included.

Waaaaay back in the day there are pictures of what a normal society should do, the downtown and the parks were full. We lost our sense of community and the tribe.

I think it makes us delusional, divided, exhausted,isolated and angry.

It hurts me to read these words because it really is true. We live in a society of selfishness where everyone is out to make it for themselves. People do not even support their friends and family anymore, they are simply burdens in making it up the socioeconomic ladder.

Is there something we can do about it? How can we go back to old community feelings and actually make real friends? I am sick of the selfishness in society, I want to cooperate. Doesn't mean I have any interest in joining a commune but would like to feel like I belong in my OWN city!

I am in the UK. A niece of 28, who has lived in USA all her life..informed us she had a one way ticket and was coming to live with us. (Us being my mother of 92 and myself, her carer). No asking if that was possible. She has not spoken to my mother for 17 years either by phone or letter. My mother regularly sent money for birthdays and Xmas and no thanks. My mother told her she could not live with us but still she came. We told her she could stay for 1 month as a holiday only and she is still here.
She arrived empty handed (not a flower or chocolate for her grandmother) and has since eaten and used everything in the house without contributing anything. My mother informed her money is tight but she just does not seem to understand.
She says she is domestically challenged and I can vouch for that when she put 3 pair of socks on a full wash in the machine!!
She spent the first month staying up late and not getting up till 2 pm. until my mother told her she has to get up in the morning.

I find her totally void of any guilt in doing this and can't help feeling anything but anger over it. I try to put myself in the situation and would never have been as selfish as this girl. If this is american youth... God help you.

We have now told her she has to go home and insisted she got a ticket home. Roll on 11th March.

Wish me luck

When times becomes tougher, so do people. We live in a pretty rough rapidly changing society. As do people in the rest of the world. What we should do is band together against tptb and fight back, but they've already brainwashed the unawoken into believing we are seperate and can not trust one another. Unfortunetly the issue is deeper then that because not only are they succeeding in preventing us from banding together to fight back, they are pushing us apart so that trust is nearly impossible to earn. I am not as such, however, in this world were people are becoming colder and harder to the environment that surrounds them; it is becoming more difficult to maintaine the possibility of hope that we can come together to change things.

OneQuestion, a couple points and I will try to stay succinct. These are my opinions based on observation. I am a person that does not own a cell phone and never has. I say this because it affords me a fairly unique perspective when I observe others.

1. We rarely interact with our neighbors anymore.
...This is largely due to our connection to the internet, smartphones, and tablets.
...The increased belief that what we have to say is important (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.).

2. Because of this lack of interaction we become increasingly intolerant.
...It's easier to get mad at someone you are disconnected and view them as an enemy. "You're either with us or against us." It's almost like George W. Bush spoke it and that became the pervasive attitude.
...It's like the bully that keeps his/her distance from his/her target. If they were forced to talk to them and get to know them they might be less likely to treat them like crap.

3. Corporate culture/speak/attitude leaking into normal society.
...This is a big deal. Corporations by nature are Psychopaths. When the culture filters down into normal society it has a severe effect on the way we interact.
...There is an increase in "what have you done for me lately."
...People are only useful to others to further their own agenda - political, social, economic, etc.
...An increasing number of people (even young people) are learning to lie and cheat to get ahead.

4. Increase in feeling helplessness and loneliness (also stress)
...We are social animals and detachment from this socialization increases our stress levels
...The best way to describe it is cabin fever without the cabin. And there are many factors that play a part in this helpless/loneliness/stress and it's different for each person.

There are many more issues at hand, but I really do feel these are the big ones.

Now, this is a mere fog that hangs over all Americans. Some are more affected by it and than others. Our societal lifestyle is an absolute virus, a cancer that grows and spreads from one host to another.

It is without a doubt Television induced behavior in my opinion.
We don't do TV but for the past week and next week we are watching the Olympics and let me tell you........
We only watch the Olympics and the NHL Playoffs, that is it period for the year.
Last time our TV needed repairs the guy said to us you have to use it more ( Older Sony Tube set)

Back to my point, the wife and myself could not get over how violent and stupid the commercials were before/during/and after the games went off the air.

Same to be said when watching the NHL, After one commercial I asked the wife "Am I suppose to laugh at that?"
It was a violent commercial with a comical twist to it I suppose.

We both don't understand the violent cartoon shows that are on the TV specifically aimed at adults. A few come to mind and the top one is the Simpsons. There are many more, but for the life of us we wonder how these shows reflect common sense or just being Polite?

Enjoying the thread and will keep reading as it goes along.

Extremely well stated.

I would add one more to your list.

The pace of change in our society, particularly from a tech standpoint, but also how the tech affects our society (which you covered in specific ways) is changing ever more rapidly. This in turn, can lead to "Culture shock" since the shear pace of change does not allow us to really settle in and become comfy and familiar with a way of life. Add to that the normal pace of business and society and holy cow!


"Culture shock is the personal disorientation a person may feel when experiencing an unfamiliar way of life due to immigration or a visit to a new country, a move between social environments, or simply travel to another type of life." Picture a neanderthal being dumped into the middle of NYC....

Once upon a time (not so distant past) change took place over generations, then it became generational...now heck...it's every time a new gadget comes out the will "change our lives" lol. I can remember when the only time you were accessible was at work (phone) or at home (phone) unless you used a payphone to call while out on the road. Much simpler times then.

I think that much of what people are feeling is a form of culture shock....
