American (global) Psychosis

2017-02-11 16:22:26 by Psychknight

If you ever want to get profoundly serious with the state of the world, politics and reality, Truthdig is one fantastic outlet that can be there for you (hopefully for a while). Yeah, I think I'll just leave it at that, so..

Just follow the link. Read the article. The writer, Chris Hedges, is quite brilliant.

Quote from the article "American Psychosis":

"The barrage of lies creates a climate in which everyone is assumed to be lying. The truth becomes suspect and obscured. Narratives begin to be believed not because they are true, or even sound true, but because they are emotionally appealing. The aim of systematic lying, as Arendt wrote, is the 'transformation of human nature itself.' The lies eventually foster somnambulism among a population that surrenders to the magical thinking and ceases to care. It checks out. It becomes cynical. It only asks to be entertained and given a vent for its frustration and rage."

Curious who did the picture above? Here's a quote and video with him below.

"I never want to depict him [Trump] as a figure of fun, as a buffoon, as a clown. OK? Because it brings all the attention onto him and lessens the focus on the apparatus that got him in there."

A good video for Newgrounds! ↓↓↓ (I wish it wasn't state sponsered (Russian) media [RT], but it's still interesting)

"Dissident Cartoonist" video (interview)

 

Quick note: I tried to embed directly from rt.com, but apparently it's not on Newgrounds' "whitelist". Sure. Ok.

Whatever..

 

I liked the thumbnail from that embed though, so I'm gonna go out of my way to put just that pic in back right here..

Actually, so I added "global" to the title of this post... because, well, simply put, the world is very globalized (more and more everyday) and that absolutely includes the export of American culture around the world (Newgrounds, like Facebook, etc. is USA culture). Therefore, if there is any truth in the theory of this 'Psychosis' in the United States, then it stands to reason a bit of that psychosis is probably spread in little (or large) bits all around the world. (even more than it would naturally occur)
