Culture of Celebrity Worshiping

| April 13, 2014 | 1 Comment

celebrity culture of worshipingModern popular culture is a total triumph of idiocy. Our societies are driven by mass media, Hollywood and public institutions, which results in all kinds of cults. We are living in a culture of cults.

Cult of personality is the strongest out there but unlike the traditional totalitarian environment, where there is one person that everyone has to worship, now there are plenty of people to worship and you have the freedom to select your favorite (the beauty of democracy). Those people are the so called celebrities – movie stars, music stars, athletes, some politicians, some business people, etc.

War is NOT a Video Game, Morons!

| April 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

bombWith the practical start of the new cold war, the possibilities of an actual hot war are rising. Wars around the world have never stopped but because the territories of the Western countries have been relatively peaceful grounds for the last 60-70 years people there don’t realize that it’s a serious threat.

War is not a joke, especially when we talk about the potential start of World War III with the biggest nuclear powers facing each other.
And yet, the escalation of pro-war talks among ordinary people is just astonishing. Those morons probably don’t realize that war is not a video game. It’s not an entertainment event that you can be part of and it’s not a sports competition.

I thought about writing another piece about the situation in Ukraine today, but I won’t. Maybe I’ll do it another day because people have to get educated and I have to be true to myself and expose what I believe is important about the topic, but not now.  There is no point because, just as Ukraine, people and media are divided and it’s bad.
(My partner in crime in this site wrote some weeks ago that Ukraine is divided so check it if you want to read about that anyway.)

People who are going to read my position are either going to praise it or blast it. That’s fine in general, all people can’t think the same way, but what is happening lately in the media world make me feel disgusted. It’s a nasty media war that doesn’t do any good for the public, escalates the tension and increases the hate among people in the world. I don’t want my article to be part of this war because I don’t like the consequences of it. So I want to make sure I’ve addressed the whole idiocy of the massive media propaganda before I write any piece on any hot topic.

Sick Fanatic Sports Fans – How Stupid Can They Be?

| February 5, 2014 | 0 Comments

sick sports fansYou know them, they are in the stadium every week for every game. They go to the extremes and very often they make a huge mess, we call them “sick fanatic sports fans” or simply hooligans. The problem with those people is not that they are stupid but that their stupidity affects the rest of us – the normal people.

This issue may not seem big of a deal but it illustrates at it’s best how stupid some people really are and what they are capable of doing because of their lack of brains.

Some of the top fashion brands

Modern-day economists are not prone to admitting an ugly truth – that profits too much depend on fools. In short – make the fools buy something that is in! The 30 years of neoliberal flourishing until 2008 was merely determined by the flourishing of brands. The combination of cheap Asian labor and consumers’ snobbery was a perfect money-making recipe.

Getting fooled – how it’s made

For Beginners: Caring About People’s Opinion

| April 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

Caring About People's OpinionWe live in a society so we are dependent to a certain extent on what others think about us. Even if we say that we do not care, we actually show that we used to care in the past or just to demonstrate some kind of independence. Regardless of this, we should be tolerable enough for society in order not to get ostracized.

Why People Tend To Believe Fortune Tellers Rather Than Do Something That Would Matter

| March 9, 2013 | 2 Comments

fortune teller with crystal ballDo you believe in fortune? Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe in magic (real magic, not illusion)? Do you believe that some people can predict the future with their supernatural gifts? Or do you think that all fortune tellers are scam artists?

Too many questions and the answers to them don’t really matter, or do they?
What matters in your life is what you do. What you think or what you believe in affect what you do. So I guess this topic is worth commenting.

Many people believe in those things, they do listen to fortune tellers and in most cases that doesn’t bring them any real benefits other than some short term placebo effect.
