THE TRUTH ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT

images (2)

Entertainment: n. using a subset(s) which tries to give much pleasure and usually gives little useful knowledge and/or information

The world is being saturated with entertainment for the masses in the form of music, movies, sports, games, mindless TV, and the glorification of gambling, alcohol and drug use.

Movies and comedy is plagued by profanity, drug references, and promiscuity which devastates more young lives than it helps all in the name of freedom and entertainment.

Western societies are obsessed with entertainment and are deluded into thinking that anything which you do should be fun or it is not worth doing.

Our role models are celebrities who rise to fame and then do stupid things to maintain that celebrity status once their popularity wanes. Too many are very bad role models with dysfunctional family relationships and excursions into addictive drug abuse habits.

 

Many in the younger generation aspire to be celebrities and don’t realize that you have to be relatively attractive, very talented, with very good memories to make it in the celebrity world.

 

The brainwashing continues during mediocre schooling in the subjective biased liberal arts which is job poor and even graduates wind up working for minimum wage or slightly more upon graduation.

 

We have a largely unskilled generation with poor job skills because they haven’t been taught the need for a useful technological education in the modern fast changing technological 21st century.

 

An overdose of entertainment without a logical functional purpose is largely responsible for the absence of realistic goals in the lives of many citizens. Purposeless frequently depressed lives seeking the next pleasure fix and next thing to buy is rampant. Instead of seeking useful improvement of bad habits and setting realistic goals in life many are wallowing in an entertainment haze interrupted daily by shitty jobs or no job.

There is good entertainment, bad entertainment, and a mixture of good and bad entertainment in society and unfortunately young impressionable minds can’t tell the difference between good and bad and are the victims of the bad entertainment which is growing in influence and devastating many lives and preventing many from living more wholesomely.

The health of a society can be judged by the entertainment which is pursued and unfortunately most of western entertainment is quite bad and getting worse.

Filling in leisure time with fun activities is what entertainment is all about. Show business is the major source of entertainment with movies, music, TV, and the internet providing most of it. Some enjoy sports and actively participate but many are just passive observers sitting down or attending sporting events and concerts.

Western societies are obsessed with entertainment and are deluded into thinking that anything which you do should be fun or it is not worth doing.

Education is handicapped with an emphasis on fun and even serious topics such as medical shows frequently succumb to entertainment mania and try to devise broadcasting techniques which entertain more than inform.

Reality shows are not in fact reality but staged presentations to captivate the attention of audiences and entertain.

With actors and celebrities as the major role models there are few willing to put in the time, effort, and achievement and work hard trying to become skilled and knowledgeable technically where most of the future jobs are. Massive unemployment and an entitlement attitude is very prevalent and not many seem to want to put much effort into a job anymore, especially if it isn’t fun.

Many are stuck in shitty jobs, bad relationships, feel hopeless and try to escape a bad life with alcohol, drugs, and gambling which is a form of pleasure seeking and entertainment for an unhappy mind.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EFFORT

effort-determines-your-success

Effort: n. investing time and energy and mental ability in achieving a goal(s)

We have sometimes been told that we are not putting enough effort into what we are doing. What does it really mean?

 

It means that we didn’t invest enough of our time, energy, and mental ability in trying to achieve the goal(s).

 

Mental ability is the only question mark because mental skills vary from human to human. Some are more logical than others and have more reasoning ability. Others have emotional strength or ability and will passionately and optimistically pursue a goal(s) through difficult times. Mental ability frequently means having the knowledge, emotional and logical tenacity to pursue a goal(s) until it is achieved.

 

Investing energy also sometimes means investing physical strength in an effort to do something and we may just be inadequate physically to achieve a goal(s) which requires great strength.

 

Given enough time most goal(s) can be achieved through persistent, determined, and persevering effort with the right human connections. Unfortunately most of us are constrained by not enough time or being too busy and don’t put enough time into many worthwhile goal(s) which frequently remain unachieved.

 

Some of us put in much effort just living day to day without conscious long duration goals and the result is that one day is much like another day without any major changes. Most live life without putting in much difficult effort unless it is doing difficult work on the job. The result is frequently that few worthwhile truly important goals in life are achieved or accomplished.

 

At one extreme there are the workaholics and at the other the lazy bums and most of us fall in somewhere in between the two extremes. The former put in much effort and the latter put in relatively little effort.

 

There is physical and mental effort and most useful jobs in society are increasingly requiring more mental than physical effort.

 

As a semi-retired human I am finding out that I am putting in much more mental than physical effort to live life and it is something which I highly recommend for retired humans. When you can no longer exercise your body that well then at least exercise your brain by learning new knowledge and mental skills to keep you young and vital mentally.

One of the things needed for a fulfilling life is maintaining a busy life as long as you can even though in your retirement years it should be a busy mental life with moderate exercise.

Finally effort alone will sometimes not achieve a goal(s) and the right tools, information, human connections, or goods and an investment of money is also needed.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMPLAINTS

vehicle-complaints

Complaint: n. communicating dissatisfaction and annoyance at a subset(s)

We all complain about something and frequently complain about things which we can’t change such as the weather. No one likes a complainer and especially one who complains about the same thing over and over which is called nagging.

 

Plenty of things go wrong in life with mistakes made and sometimes behaving badly so complaints are a fact of life. A general rule of thumb is-if you can’t do anything about the source of your complaint then ignore it or try to avoid it but don’t stress about how bad you think an insoluble problem is.

 

If you don’t want to be annoying and irritating then don’t complain much unless you think the complaining will register and something can or will be done about it by you or someone else.

In business complaints are important and may be a good source of ideas for improving the product or service and making customers happier or more satisfied with what they purchase.

 The squeaky wheel usually gets attention but just like crying wolf more than once your complaining will be ignored if it goes on too long without resolution and your reputation as someone radiating negative vibes will scare away many humans whom you may want to attract.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EMOTION

????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Emotion: n. a very intense mental and/or brain sensation and/or the behaviors which exist with samer sensation

We are a human species very susceptible to emotional flare ups which come and go with various degrees of intensity of primarily fear, love, and hate. We fear that we will not survive physically and mentally with all our beliefs, opinions, and habitual behaviors and we are constantly trying to defend them largely impulsively and rarely rationally.

 

The language biases us in favor of a highly emotional existence rather than a logical one and until we change the way that we use language we will wallow in our emotional irrational biases. We intuitively feel that the conservation of our emotionally biased personal world view is vital to our physical and mental survival.

 

Intuition and impulsive behavior primarily guides most of our lives which is based on prior experiences with the environment and especially other humans with which we have interacted with in our past. Many of us are handicapped with less than perfect looks, mediocre memories, bad role models, mediocre education, and financially relatively poor resources.

 

Many of us are trapped with many bad habits and relatively bad relationships with other humans and we are emotionally conditioned to stay in our traps because our emotions frequently don’t sense a logical way out of our limiting predicament. Human competition is everywhere and we are constantly reminded by society that we are much less than ideal role models physically, educationally, mentally, and financially.

There are the relatively few in leadership positions and most of us are the gullible irrational brainwashed followers in an increasingly immoral human world which is rapidly destroying biodiversity and in the process threatening the long duration survival of humans on the face of this precious endangered planet.

 

A primary reason why humanity is so shitty is that an emotional language and emotional indoctrination is used to condition humans who then mostly behave irrationally in their lives almost randomly experimenting with life without seeing much purpose and not logically planning successful courses of action for their lives and setting good goals in life.

 

An emotional overdose of free expression is largely a western predicament because other parts of the world are still largely regimented with minimal freedom to let their emotions run wild in society but the emotions still trap them to live the limiting lives which they live.

 

The language needs a logical updating and young humans need to be indoctrinated with a secular moral code worldwide if this world has any hope of surviving into the distant future in a healthy, sane, peaceful, and environmentally sustainable way.
