What do Nice-Guys, Daddy-Issues, Mommy-Issues, Beta males, feminist, and leftist all have in common?
This includes feelings of inferiority, low self-esteem, feelings of powerlessness, depressive tendencies, defeatism, guilt, etc.
Unfortunately comrades, these archetypes infest our land.
Making the majority, rather than the minority.
This condition has many of the masses to lead lives of quiet desperation.
They seek escapism in "The One", video games, T.V, cinema, drugs, porn, and especially social media.
For example, porn tricks the brain into thinking it is banging all the women it is seeing on screen.(Source:Porn is Bad)
This all provides a false sense of security to the body, and one's subconscious.
When one is brought back to reality for the few moments after the high, the individual continues to partake in these distractions, for they carry self-hatred from either participating in such activity, refusing to self-reflect/deal with issues they are currently facing, or are currently unhappy with who they are but are too lazy to work on themselves. So the continue to seek escapism; All leading to an increase in the hyper-reality the individual is in.
This can lead to solipsism if one is not careful.
This is where the masses reside, a place of distraction, of illusion, of hyper-reality, or as we call it over here at TRP "The Matrix".
What "The Matrix" consist of is Oversocialization, and Surrogate activity's.
Oversocialization: Assimilated too far into society. The moral code of a selected culture is embedded in one at young age. In order to avoid feelings of guilt, they continually have to deceive themselves about their own motives and find moral explanations for feelings and actions that in reality have a non-moral origin. A good example of oversocialization at play is waiting at a red-light in the middle of the night, while no-one is even around.
Surrogate activity's: an activity that is directed toward an artificial goal that people set up for themselves merely in order to have some goal to work toward, or let us say, merely for the sake of the “fulfillment” that they get from pursuing the goal.
Oversocialization is associated with Blue-pill thinking and behavior.
Surrogate activity's are what peoples routines are made up of. (At least in 1st world countries) Even when one is "Red-pilled" they still carry on surrogate activity's however, are now self-aware, which leads to thoughts of nihilism, existentialism, or absurdism.
All this can lead to feelings of self-hatred.
What is one to do in order to escape "The Matrix"?
We are forced to confront the darkest aspects of ourselves. Our shadow.
In Jungian psychology, the shadow, is hidden or unconscious aspects of oneself, both good and bad, which the ego has either repressed or never recognized.
You do not take a "Red-pill" and simply everything is better.
You have to confront yourself, and cut off parts of yourself that are eating at you.
You have to face the past experiences and now the future with truth.
You have to put in the work.
You have to go through The Journey of Hell.
Some may call this Shadow work, self-development, self-actualization, or re-creating oneself.
The wisdom of this text, and the lesson one should take from it is thus...
You must face your issues, head-on, or else they will consume you, Slowly eating away, like poison, a leech, over-riding control of your free-will.
The masses are not doing this. And it is leading to more censorship, more violence, and more self-hatred. In a mass scale, the shadow of the collective is eating away at us. Over-riding our freedoms.
