@winninglosing I think "salvation" for people has to take place on an individual level once they identify why they engage in escapist behaviors, what they derive from said behaviors, & identify new behaviors that give them the experiences and or values they feel so deprived of or deficient in. People in essence have to become their own self-made socio-psychologist to avoid the pitfalls of this era
@winninglosing Escapism a compensatory behavior to substitue for experiences one feels deprived. For instance porn. If a guy feels lonely, isolated, and in need of connection but finds it difficult to get a date or get laid porn acts as a deficient substitute for this guy's lack of intmacy or sense of connection. People do it all the time.
@TheStoicCrane I live in an area that floods every year in the same areas and farmers almost never got crops out of that land my whole life. They just plant it so the government can subsidize the crop loss on otherwise useless land they wouldn't plant on anyway. The few times they do get harvests it's great because the dead fish and plant material from the floods, but it's a major net loss.
I love it! Though there are many exceptions, I know them personally, thing short-sighted, retarded white people like you fail to understand is that the majority of Black culture has nothing to do with America.
