Until I read the chapter repeatedly, I couldn’t understand why people saw this part as a contradiction. When completing the book, I was un-empathetic as I couldn’t see why people saw it this way. I realized a month or two down the line, which to fair I always knew but didn’t want to see with the absence of empathy. That we all don’t process and think the same. Besides, I began partially entitled and un-sympathetic as it made me practice setting boundaries more effectively. Which one of the things that I failed to take into the equation was not everyone was ready to face the truth head-on, which had gaslight-ers and bandwagon-ers all attempting to change my point of you as they saw it as an opportunity to do so. This helps me argue more effectively to infiltrate a catastrophic event of forcing someone to look at themselves in the mirror. Where critical words for those who catch on penetrate them from experiencing the effects to their cause. While others in the “superego” attempt to continue to believe I was not the genuine person that I portrayed. As in superego or narcissism is a common characteristic. Which made them see who they were, a true narcissist.
You are now reading this in a much more open mindset. I emphasize destiny and the universe, which already sounds contradictory, right? If I emphasized the Domino, turned Circle Jerk, turn Ripple effect, much more would make complete sense. We, feeling like we are just a speck in the Universe, have much more of a catastrophic impact on the world where we live in a world where we all inspire one another. Depending on the person interpreting the information. Can interpret this into something it was never meant to be. Where someone who stole the idealism and with resources to make it into a fad or idealism. Can make others evilly act upon this idealism. Which in greed and seeing a profitable opportunity, can be guilty by association if you just let destiny take its course. Which many of our social movements of justice have turned to be. Influencing others and taking the limelight away from someone puts those who are not emotionally ready to face the consequences dodge the kickback and responsibility that others will attempt to blame those not prepared for as we live in a world where victimhood is an everyday thing. And those in plagiarism can be the messiah of a people sinning the globe. Which influence is the worst weapon anyone can have in the end? Which just seeing the smaller picture and not the bigger picture has you making the wolves think you were a wolf but ripping you to shreds when they realize that you aren’t
Indigenous people were the first to encounter this as we all know what happened to them when America got taken over by Europeans. Which if you look at history was established through manipulation, deception, and a hell of a lot of sin. Which if you look at the way our American leaders gain power, it is through shame tactics, scare tactics, and a lot of manipulation. Which if you ask me if how our first social norm developed. Which I feel ended up stirring the mindset of greed, which would have contradicted the bartering system the original people had in the Americas. Which the deceptive promise of wealth and opportunity is the making of what is known as the “American Dream.” Which is still the same idealism that immigrants have based on “experience” and “personal interaction.” Which many of them accept the American culture but still frown upon it because the truth is they even see it as “entitled.” Which many of them still in a more oppressive caste system, don’t see. My friend, who pointed this out to me, ended up getting backlash from taking it as a personal attack. Which is why a lot of them don’t speak up because we American’s can be little shit. I mean, look at your everyday interactions when you’re picking and choosing your battles. Which has you looking at those in the act of expected American behavior saying to fight for yourself, “You should keep up with your bills, instead of keeping up with the Kardashians.” Where those who are ugly as fuck they are God’s gift to the human race. That they are living a life of luxury when they have no pot to piss on. Where taking the bus in Gucci and carrying LV purses thinking they are shit but has everyone saying, “You should have used that money you paid eighty bucks at the flea market for a down payment on a car.” They already have a lie; they told themselves why they chose that for themselves, some bullshit humanitarian slogan, where they have a degree but don’t know shit. Where the lives they are living are all based on lies.
Togetherness is something I feel that we have to embrace if we want to make change occur. Where we must refrain from entitlement, refrain from fear, and support those who have shown to have that strength. One thing I learned that we will always get what we need versus get what we want. Which is something we also began to get conditioned to believe. Where getting what you wish to show greatness and respect. But have you gotten the things you always wanted and still were unhappy? Well, those who don’t know this, I hate to say, have to learn the hard way. We all think that in our perception, we can change things because we are more powerful than those who failed. However, the missing equation that comes into this mentality is that the world isn’t fair. To everyone who looks down on us, no matter what pasture you roam in, all have someone in insecurity and threat see them as beneath them, where the misperceptions we have about someone not knowing the truth behind the rhetoric is that we misjudge things. Which, in many cases, comes from the threat of this person based on the fear. Which hypothetically becomes a stereotype. Which truth of the matter is when we do, this is why we don’t see the change we so desperately need. That at the end, when we gang up on someone who doesn’t want to see the light as they are not getting what they want versus what they need. In the end, it becomes an unfair attack, which someone who’s able to inspire change; ends up in a bandwagon tactic to end up becoming an act of deception.
