There’s nothing cultural critics fear more than sincerity.
Ever notice that?
The gatekeepers of cultural dissemination mock that which, “takes itself too seriously”.
Irony, they adore.
Sincerity? That’s “mawkish” or “kitsch” or “Cheesy”.
And of course the irony they like to propagandize for is of the most vile, disgusting, dehumanizing sort.
Why is that?
What is gained from this, other than societal debasement and breakdown?

It’s a temptation we can all fall into, but be careful not to go tumbling down rabbit holes in search of the ultimate cause of this, that or the other.
In other words, the hunt for the origin of things is an exercise in futility.
In LOTR’s Gollum wormed his way under the mountains in the belief that, “The roots of those mountains must be roots indeed; there must be great secrets buried there which have not been discovered since the beginning.”
And if you know the story you know Gollum remained alone in the darkness for quite some time. He found no secret knowledge but instead became more and more wretched with each passing day, till he eventually split in two and began having arguments with himself.
Questions about why and how are answered 99% of the time with, Greed, Envy, Lust, Ambition or Stupidity.
Intent makes up that last 1%. But as Intent is never subtle, there’s no mystery there -think ideologues or religious fanatics.
I know it might make life seem more bland and boring to realize that there are no great mysteries out there, but reality is what it is. Man up. Deal with it. Or start talking to yourself in the darkness.

Increasingly you see and hear the man behind the curtain mumbling, "f*ck the curtain".
The show is over.
For about 300 years THEY have been trying to re-engineer reality to fit their ideology.
But THEIR project has been an utter failure.
It’s falling apart and any pretense to keep up the illusion is being tossed aside in increasing desperation to maintain the belief system.
Everybody knows this. They know it. We know it. But like Baghdad Bob-ism, why not keep up the denial to the last moment?
So yeah, the stock market, like every other driver in the modern world, is rigged. Big time.
Because the ride is quickly ending, so why the hell not do a Major Kong on the way down?
note: THEY being the merchant class who rose to power between the 14th and 19th Century.

I see conservatives are all puffed up now as “Hollywood is imploding” just as they knew it would.
Just like when the AIDs epidemic burst forth in the 1980‘s and conservatives were certain that would be the end to the sexual revolution and “free love”.
And certainly homosexuality would be pushed back into the shadows with the horrible deaths related to HIV. No doubt by 1995 traditional morals will be back and celebrated by even the radical left and the media.
And then there was the September terror attacks of 2001 by immigrants who were also muslims.
Conservatives were just certain that that would be the end of open borders and would, obviously,
Conservatives never learn.
The left have no morality. They have no ethics. They have no notions of right and wrong. All they know is their revolution of death and destruction.
And they control the media, the culture, academia, the courts and even the churches now.
Lest you forget, “sexual harassment” was a term and concept created by.......leftists.
So even if you pile on the current attack of Hollywood, you are doing so within the paradigm the left created and sustain. Making you one of them.
If the left get caught stealing, they turn it into a “cause” to understand, tolerate and then celebrate thieves. And anyone who objects will be labeled a bigot.
Think about that for a minute.
Unless you're a conservative. If so, just go back to watching "reality" shows.

Everybody is an artist. Everybody is a scientist. Everybody is an engineer. Everybody is doctor.
We all practice these things as part of normal, everyday survival.
Scientists are not A People, anymore than artists are A People.
Science is something we all engage in. As is art.
And yet democracies (of the people) are drowning in cult of personalities. Celebrity Cults. “The Experts” Cults and so on.
This is because democracy is an obvious sham. You might’ve noticed that democracies are ALWAYS imposed upon a people from without -by a small group.
No society has ever voted to become a democracy because to vote would already make them a democracy.
The model for all government is the family. And the family is not a democracy. It is a monarchy with dad and mom being king and queen. And younger brothers subject to older brothers, etc.
Again, democracies are always imposed by a small elite. Which is why they give out rights to individuals over and against the family. And it's also why we have these cult of personalities. Because if natural authority is not the base of society, then “experts” will be -people who are not acting on authority, but on the premise of them being qualified.
The elites must justify their reign and what better way than to get everyone to participate by exalting “experts” who are, of course, qualified to lead.
Being Qualified vs Authority.
That’s what it comes down to.
A Father has authority but a Sociologist is qualified.
The Father might not be very bright, and the Sociologist graduated from Yale.
You must submit to one or the other.
To which one would you suppose submitting would lead to a cult of personality?
To which one would you suppose not submitting to could lead to legal problems or even prosecution?
Think about it.
If you disregard the will of your Father (the King), you will loose his help and direction.
But if you disregard the will of an Expert, you can loose your home, your kids, your job and be cast into prison.
So is it any wonder why Murica worships celebrities and disregards their own natural instincts to give way to the will of experts (abortion, gay marriage, contraception, multiculturalism, etc)

I’ve wondered if the impact of ubiquitous mass media creating a generic world in which tens of millions of people grew up immersed in is the reason for the psychologically fragile twenty-some things we see today.
From commercials to “reality” tv to movies and so on, far too many people believed that the theatrical performance they were watching was representative of reality.
And of course whenever they find themselves in the real world, they go into shock and either scream and yell at the heavens or withdrawal into safe spaces where reality can’t reach them.
Education has played a role in this as well. Schooling was always more about indoctrination/enculturation than it was about teaching facts, but in a post-industrial democracy the emphasis became more overtly ideological, as the goal was to create voters rather than workers. So we saw the rise of gender studies and race relation studies, the re-writing of history to support the current narrative and so on.
In other words the resources went from coal, oil and timber to voter/consumer -and the fight for and control thereof.
But the real world is always lurking beyond the fantasy world of “a better tomorrow”.
And the fantasy world is far more fragile than the snowflakes it created.
It's not a matter of if, but when it will come crashing down
