@tb87670 Reading 1984 Where O'Brien goes on a long tangent on the workings of the inner party. About how they distort objective reality to suit their own subjective interests and coerce others to comply with their corrupted narrative. Solipsism is probably the closest.

Is there a philosophical term describing the belief that nothing exists outside of one's own mind? Besides insanity, of course.

@redpillschool Third party State or Federal Agencies in place strictly to investigate police misconduct, holding them accountable would be a step in a positive direction.

As it stands cops are responsible for their own punishment with internal investigations and that's beyond retarded. It's like expecting a kid to go to their room and punish themselves after they just shoplifted a gaming console. They'd be stupid for not to take advantage and play their stolen game pretending like nothing happened.

These are reactionary times. People are more inclined to emotionally retaliate in the moment than construct long-term solutions. For lawlessness to manifest without it had to form from within first. We're just seeing it play out.

@INNASKILLZ2K20 If I were to keep the television off and minimize the exposure to the internet aside from a few BLM signs randomly attached to street poles has absolutely no effect on my day to day. Covid-19 is the big problem ax ir's effecting everything.

@INNASKILLZ2K20 ...and deprivating itself of riches from above and within. Though this is one of the most wealthy periods of human history it's also among the poorest.

@Bilskee In Western Society people have been conditioned to associate their sense of self-worth with the price of their possessions.

That and they feel a sense of belonging through their belongings. In grade school the kid who didn't have the new Jordans or Playstation is the odd man out of the group. The girl who doesn't keep up with the latest fashion trends gets treated like a social paraiah. Some guys buy expensive cars they couldn't care less about to be accepted by women.

This "Keeping up with the Jones" mentality traps people in a cycle of validation seeking through buying things for approval.
