It's funny because it could apply to either of you.

In the bigger picture, yes. But you have to be selective about what you chose to care about. Like JOMP says, we love to get out feathers ruffled by manufactured outrage. Being dissatisfied/pissed off about everything that doesn't conform to our views is futile. Don't get me wrong: I step outside onto the street and am immediately confronted by half a dozen things that piss me off. But notice I say confronted. Not assaulted. I have enough eating away at me on a daily basis. Most of it ends up being of no consequence to me. So I let it go. It's freeing.

I get your meaning.
Manufactured outrage = Excellent term.

My focus is not the outrage itself, but the intent behind the manufacturing of it. The method and the manner that it has been effective is also a curiosity, but also easily explained.

Just make sure the bullshlt isn't bullshlt.

It's mostly #######4. The art of selling #######4 is that the few threads of truth that have been woven in are pulling on the heart strings.

i.e.
1."humanitarianism" => mass illegal immigration ( don't be racist ! blah blah blah)
2. Climate Hoax => "stealing the kiddies future!" ( guilt trip from the kiddies that have been programmed to deliver the "message')
...They will be chowing down on each other in the name of 'progress.'


Good!

But what really is progress? Is it technology? I'll bet that's what would come spilling out of most people's mouths if asked. And what is technology? The current definition seems to be that technology is electronic devices. Hand held picture phones where you can watch someone fall down at their wedding. That's not really technology, it's economics. You bought it, now use it. Capitalism is a tricky bastard.


Good question. How to define 'progress?'
Depends who is doing the defining. What is the purpose of 'progress? '
IF take a political perspective, it's not hard to see the influences at work, but seems the masses are blind to it.
#1. Education has gone to $#%^.
#2. Education that has gone to $#%^, is going to sh!t similarly across the globe at the same time.
( that is not an 'accident' or 'coincidence')
#3. "open borders"
Is progress our ability, as humans, to manage a ballistic, overreaching culture of selfishness?

Is it though? Doesn't seem to be the case. Rather, currently, it is faux virtue signaling while destroying your own culture.

To neuter the negative effect of a species which, in its infinite boredom and pointlessness, manages to slowly destroy the vessel which sustains it? By vessel, I do not mean "the planet". The planet is doing just fine. It's merely reacting. Climate change activists, in their desperation, have taken to proclaiming that there's some sort of cut-off date looming; some specific point in which the earth will have "had enough" and people will suddenly wake up one day and be chased down the street by rogue icebergs. What they fail to mention is that this "cut-off date" will likely encompass hundreds of years. In the meantime, before the inevitable next mass extinction, what will we do with the millions of refugees displaced by war or hunger or various other forms of destruction?

That negative effect is not about the rogue icebergs in this scenario. It is merely the distraction from the main goal, which is the open borders bullsh!t. And that you will experience effect of in your life time.

People forget that one of the most basic needs of civilization is civility.

Civility, well said. And what does that look like to you?

Societies have broken down before. But how will it go down when a society of 8 billion starts to unravel? The bigger they come, the harder they fall. What we're experiencing now is that anticipatory dread a suicidal man might feel two seconds before he hits the pavement. Savor it. It's gonna last decades. Chances are most people here will be long dead before the shlt slowly begins to hit the fan. And even then, most people will be saying, "It's fine. Everything is fine. We will persevere."

Nice.
It's a slow burn. Shortly after birth, babies begin to oxidize internally. Birth is nothing more than the beginning of a countdown to the point in which the organism is no longer able to sustain itself against internal and external decay. The same can be said for societies and the human race in general. Who cares? Let it happen. You only get one brief shot at life. Why taint it by getting all upset about a bunch of plastic in a landfill or some guy in a dress? Nothing you do will make a difference. If it makes you feel better to complain, go right ahead. But humanity and modern civilization is a monster you have no effect on no matter how hard you kick and scream.

Reads like you gave up along the way? That is in one sense a victory, I suppose.

The reason that the Climate Change Crisis is so good is that it's a great tool to stop people throwing away their plastic bottles. Floating plastic bottles doesn't make the climate change, but somehow we think it does.

I agree it is a useful tool. I don't care if climate change is a hoax if it means people show more respect for the natural world. I abhor the destruction / lack of respect ( from an emotional and aesthetic point of view) of the world of nature.

I honestly don't get it or something -

So others are pushing for what is good for them, and everyone else gets offended when they do because it's not good for myself. And how is this identity politics any different?

Did you read the previous points?
As you dodged the CCC+Cannibalism Con thread as well.

Cognitive dissonance creates dead zones of silence.
Specifically, with regards to your question. It's a numbers game.

Identity politics was designed to create angst and anger between the genders and races. For what?
Then, the white male is the most oppressed and doesn't dare say a word about it, or he is being supremacist. What is that crap?

Would take books to explain it. But the conclusion is the same.

1. The minority are dictating to the majority at massive loss to the majority ( identity bs)
2. Climate Haox= Bad science with no actual feasible solutions that are not worse than what is already available and which will not destroy the economy.
3. Mass illegal immigration to solve some bullsh!t population 'decline" and now there is massive crime which the indigenous cannot speak about because it is considered 'islamophobic" or racist or some ridiculous crap.

And, the idiots that came up with the climate hoax and the bs population DECLINE are the same useless fks that are now selling cannibalism as a 'solution' to CO2 and over-population. If you can't see the fking problem with that?
Nothing can help you see it.

Well I have had several back and forth email exchanges with Warren Farrell, the author of "The Myth of Male Power", and enjoyed the Red Pill movie by Cassie Jaye, so I entirely agree with this notion of males have life is easy, and women do not, is a bunch of BS. Confusing the life of the top 20 men as seen on TV with the life of men is a childish view of the world.

We are probably on the same page, maybe.
