Peer Pressure, Society

RoundSparrow - I do not declare that I am free from influence of Peer Pressure, society influence

It is very popular among billionaires and their loyal fans to declare that people are a "self made man", and billionaire media networks run by Rupert Murdoch, Elon Musk, etc.

Selling the message to The People of the Pale Blue Dot that:

2. Trickle down memes from the wealthy to the poor in the form of lavish films, lavish props and the most beautiful people in TV shows, lavish images of houses, boats, airplanes, clothing, etc that people cheer on. Sports team owner billionaires trickle down sports entertainment to the masses.

3. Education is discouraged often by Rupert Murdoch, Elon Musk in favor of personal claims to put faith into the leaders of media platforms. This is how the media empire of the Roman Catholic Church worked with thier Bible story media and Church media venues. Wealthy media agents like Rupert Mudoch Family and Elon Musk informing society how important it is to praise their media platform. That Middle Ages Europe example is not the only one, Hitler's Nazi Germany and modern day Russia under Putin with Surkov media design is similar.

4. "Pick your self up by your bootstraps" as a means to not have compassion for all humanity.

Hunger Games film itself is lavish art, but at least emphasizes the Roman Empire "bread and circus" trickle down economics / trickle down memes.

Finnegans Wake being created between First World War and Second World War was trying to highlight this pattern among many others.

I, RoundSparrow, do not declare I am a self-made man free of these influences. I have seen entire nations sickened by terrorists in my travels to North Africa for media ecology study of the Arab Spring, I have see my nation sickens by invasive Mock Mock Mockery audience behaviors. It does sicken the population, what Marshall McLuhan called "mass man". And why Marshall McLuhan's 1968 book "War and Peace in the Global Village" I feel is essential to humanity breaking this sickening pattern of terrorism messaging and hate domination.

"Mankind naturally and generally love to be flatter'd: Whatever sooths our Pride, and tends to exalt our Species above the rest of the Creation, we are pleas'd with and easily believe, when ungrateful Truths shall be with the utmost Indignation rejected. "What! bring ourselves down to an Equality with the Beasts of the Field! with the meanest part of the Creation! 'Tis insufferable!" But, (to use a Piece of common Sense) our Geese are but Geese tho' we may think 'em Swans; and Truth will be Truth tho' it sometimes prove mortifying and distasteful."
