I thought that was more, “Life”?
Well since this is a blog… Here are some thoughts about this:
When I ask my friends if they read the papers, Many say they get their news from social media or apps. (CNA etc.) But i was just wondering, is “news” (if there was an unadulterated thing as such in the first place) becoming (MOre like) social media. Not that that’s bad… many pros, cons, as in all things.
I guess as one gets older one just gets nostalgic, imagining that things were better before:
[Travel, accept certain inalienable truths]…
..Prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old
And when you do, you’ll fantasize that when you were young
Prices were reasonable, politicians were noble
And children respected their elders
Respect your elders, don’t expect anyone else to support you
Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you’ll have a wealthy spouse
But you’ll never know when either one will run out
- it could be a manifestation of identification / autonomising /strengthening self (indiv/a collective group)
- Without the formative identification of “the other”, we would not be functional? judgement(criticalness) pulled to an extreme is perceiving, and perhaps evolutionarily it was to perceive and identify threats. —> is the other my mother (love attachment) or a bad man who is going to distract you and take your pencilbox.
- an indicator of seeing things in a way, the same way pain is an indicator/warning of something needs to be done to protect the self.
- it could also just be maladapative coping with fears, needs (jobs/security)
OKAY time to sleep. black and white, which leads to making too many connections(jumping into conlcusions/assumptions)
Please let me sleep God.
