this is very troublesome. What we can see here is the exact mindset that is described by Markaret Atwood in her book ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. This is a mindset of entitlement that has disassociated itself from the ‘other’. Being poor is now the ‘other’, nothing much to do with race. This degree of desensitization to social norms shows a remarkable progression. This leads us to the mindset of the French revolution, when the elites were incable of processing the condition of the masses, and failed to see the connection to their own well being.
This is all narrative. The language we use, the words we allow to be spoken, all create story which becomes narrative. Once narrative is set and becomes collective norm, it creates a mindset. That is the lens through which we see the world. It shapes our intentions, which then are expressed in our actions. A process that can be traced back and forth, easy to identify.
I hope everyone realizes that we are in deep shit, right? We are fighting a story inside of a war that will come one way or the other. That war is on, sorry for the wary. The outcome can be either shaped into what could be described as best possible, or left run its course, which would be the end of civilization as we know it.
