Innocence’s death, more often than not in the Civilized World, comes not through horror’s seen or done, but from learning that one is nothing but a market or political demographic to be manipulated and exploited. Oh yes, innocence dies whimpering with the simple knowledge that one’s heroes, one’s villains, and even the tensions between them are simply marketing and branding meant to profit off of you.
There is some truth in Cisgender as a term, just not the truth that the trannies, their enablers, and the #groomers in our schools so desperately and violently demand that normal, mentally healthy people believe.
The truth is that “Cisgender” is merely a term coined in 1994 – in a tranny Usenet group! – specifically as an antonym to the already flawed term, transgender. The truth is that Cisgender is a term meant solely for their use to make trannies feel less abnormal than they are.
So, there is some truth in the term, Cisgender. It’s true that it has exactly zero basis in science. It’s true that is was coined as an in-group shibboleth and coping mechanism by sadly and severely mentally damaged individuals. And, it’s true that its current misuse and overuse is causing irreparable harm to a number of people, all for the sociopolitical gain for the depraved and disgusting sorts who profiteer off of minority groups of all stripes.
While it’s true that Jung isn’t the most favored or respected of philosophers and psychoanalysts in this age, but his works on the collective unconsciousness of Man and the embodiment of Archetypes in our individual and group worldviews is seminal. So, here’s to helping you all know the Noteworthy Archetypes you’ll likely encounter a bit better. 😉
Who’s shaking the jar? Somebody has to be shaking it! There has to be some spider in its web and/or some shadowy cabal pulling the strings for their own nefarious ends. Or, so says one variety of common wisdom. A variety I choose to call Tinfoil Wisdom.
With the exception of the Lamestream Media, who shakes things up for their own profit as much as any agenda, there doesn’t have to be any shadowy figure “shaking the jar.” Certain sorts are quite capable of behaving heinously without manipulative instigation. They’re just that bad all on their own.
This is unfortunately the curse of being sentient. We’re built to make use of pattern recognition and, hence, we’re susceptible to false pattern recognition aka Apophenia. We are, as Klaus Conrad wrote, prone to the unmotivated seeing of connections accompanied by a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness and to engaging in self-referential, over-interpretations of what we see and hear.
There doesn’t have to be some spider in its web and/or some shadowy cabal pulling the strings for their own nefarious ends. With the ease of communication and the resultant online “echo chambers,” we’re quite capable of producing conflicts organically.
Of course, all that said, that doesn’t mean that sometimes, at some various levels, that there isn’t someone “shaking the jar.” It just means that there doesn’t have to be and that we should jump to the conclusion that there is. Sometimes, probably the majority of times, that “Shaker” didn’t start the shit; they just enabled existing troublemakers in order to profiteer off of them.
This video of one of the most elaborate marriage proposals that I’ve ever seen showed up in my Facebook newsfeed a while ago. While I doubt, given its source and the seriously high production value, that it’s real, it struck me somewhat oddly.
Because of the way I think I’m forced to wonder, if this was a real proposal, is it perhaps the most beautiful and romantic proposal in recent public memory or an equally egregious case of one person cynically manipulating another for his own ends?
Since I know that my mind doesn’t work like most people’s, why don’t you readers tell me what you think of this proposal?
For the record – in case you couldn’t guess – I found it to be a cynically manipulative ploy because it forced the women to either accept the proposal or both a hugely public scene and basically tell her friends and family that she didn’t respect their opinions.
