I won’t defend the idiocy of the millennial generation, nor claim that they are poor little victims. If anything it should be the generation with least excuses to be idiots, not with all the technological developments and information being just a click away.
Looking at it deeper though, you start to see a pattern, the millennials just being the latest permutation. If you look for social critiques in all ages (whether they are just moralist fools or discerning intellectuals) you notice that in every single generation there are those who are fucked up beyond recognition in every social strata, some are just skewed perceptions, some are spot on. You even start to notice that since time immemorial older generations complain about the younger ones and claim the world is going to end because of the loose morals of younger generations.
Millennials mask their anxiety and emptiness by losing themselves in their smart phones, social media and circles of pseudo-friends. A young man in the middle ages would mask his anxiety and emptiness by praying to god, being a hard worker and drinking into oblivion with pseudo friends. A hippie would do the same by getting stoned, seeking enlightenment and hugging trees.
We are looking at insanity masking itself into whatever activities fit the social paradigm. In the particular case of Milennials they tend to mask their insanity by an extreme degree of narcissism (even though they like to pretend they are down to earth). There was a blogger who said this was the age of Narcissus and he wasn’t wrong about it and just like previous generation they have a bunch of “informed opinions” made even worse by their training at universities and the like.
There is something which actually makes the situation interesting and maybe even a bit scary, it has an expression in all ages, but I think it is more prominent in this Millenial Generation. That is to say, a spirit of rebellion being hi-jacked and redirected into ways of sedation. In principle, the idea of rebellion is fine and dandy even if it starts with little things such as dress code, but the execution is where it fails miserably.
Boris Mouravieff in his book Gnosis talks about a General Law whose function is to keep things in check, while the Law of Exception allows a few to go in the opposite direction, have this in mind.
Years ago I made a remark which suggested the typical perceptions on teenagers were dead wrong. There’s this “common knowledge” which deem teenagers as being out of control because of hormones, it just a phase which has to be quenched… this is major bullshit and our perception has to be re-framed:
The teenager phase (apart from the self-evident biological changes) is actually a natural immune response against the pretensions of society at large. You could say this is when the Law of Exception has its biggest window of opportunity, but it is only an opportunity, not a guarantee. If anything it should be a phase where proper guidance should be given otherwise the rebellion you see in teenagers could go sideways and become self-destructive. The problem is the older generations have already submitted themselves so in turn they seek to quench this Rebellion, most of time it succeeds and the teenager will be reinserted into the matrix and follow the same sad pathetic script everyone else does: Go to college, find a job, get a woman, marry, reproduce, retire, die. A mechanical life.
The milennials are the logical conclusion of the waves of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s all of those characterized for being periods of rebellion (ultimately they failed), we’ve reached an extreme conclusion where entitlement and political correctness are the norm. Just as a rebellious teenager can be re-directed to become a passive consumer of false ideas of rebellion, so can an entire generation.
A generation which in principle had potential to actually become rebellious in a constructive way, ended up being too stupid to recognize how such spirit can be redirected into mindless narcissism. If religion was the drug of choice for the medieval junkie to mask their anxiety; then technology and mass production has become the Millennial junkie drug of choice to mask the same kind of existential anxiety the medieval humans found themselves experiencing.
The logical conclusion for a humanity which has been escaping itself since the time of the Ancients can only be the Milennials. Often times people look at it as if came out of nowhere, but the reality is that it has been building up since long ago, lack of perception is what prevented people from seeing it coming from miles away. Have a closer look, not just at the milennials, but at human generations through history. The closer we have gotten to modern times, the more things there are to lose ourselves in, to hide, to avoid facing the truth about ourselves.
So now the millenials are the generation which has all kinds of shit to try to numb their pain, more than all the previous generation combined: Smartphones, computers, Starbucks, money, fashion, social protests, best sellers, music concerts, drugs, social media, instant friendships, pretentious romances, universities.
The underlying dynamic keeps repeating itself, it has been the same for thousands of years, the only difference being the variety of options which allows us to turn a blind eye.
Sex is the most prominent example so nowadays our obsession expresses itself in two main contradictory forms: Social and religious morality which is ashamed of the human body so we find ways to demonize it and become asexual because we feel uncomfortable being sexual, in an attempt to become asexual we invoke god or we invoke fat acceptance. The other form is that of constant contact with sexual imagery which most of the time never actualises in the life of people so they try to become asexual by limiting their fantasies and impulses to their own imagination.
A millenial finds himself between these two forms. On one hand he is supposed to be proper and restrain his sexuality, dress code and impeccable behaviour is a must, so he would become pretentious and give moral sermons to those women who are attractive and like to show some skin; on the other hand he is supposed to accept the free flow of sexuality, to not be ashamed by the human body, not to be uptight; so then he would accuse others of being sexually repressed snobs living in the past. No one who has both forms hammered into their minds can remain sane for long.
Either extreme they choose to side with ultimately means they are trying to escape from themselves, thus their persona is being overfed which results in something like having a massive obsession with selfies and taking one of those every 10 seconds and uploading it to social media so other broken people can -as the series Mr. Robot puts it- gloat on trivia masquerading as insight:
This is a topic which has interested me for quite some time, not just about matters of male or female nor senseless sex. What really interests me is the deeper aspect and the impact sexuality has on human beings. From the potential to use it as a tool for fear and repression to the potential of living a calm life and even improving your health.
The very cosmos seems to carry sexuality in its very fabric. Isn’t a big bang something akin to a cosmic orgasm? the universal womb dancing along the universal light? something like that.
Anyways my first entry on this subject will focus more on the aspect of sexual abuse/repression.
The way I see it sexual abuse is deeply related to a master-slave relationship. Sexual abuse could be seen as someone forcing another person into sexual activities without their consent or it could be seen as someone trying to control/repress the sexuality of another person. The latter seems to play a big role within families.
I highly recommend the film “Black Swan” because it represents these dynamics in a brilliant manner and I mean the repression and overstimulation of sexuality.
What should be understood is that this can be described as a complex matter. It becomes complex when you start to look beyond the “what happened” and you start to explore the why, the who, the how, the when, etc. In this exercise you will find this goes way further than sexual predators and mere superficial cultural ideas, the monster is a giant octopus, each tentacle is a different area of study.
There are two things which should be core principles when studying the predator mindset and I’m not limiting this to sexual predation. You’ve got this mindset in the workplace, family, sports, religions. Basically the whole culture is frankeinsteined into different types of predators.
Anyways those two core principles are the human psyche and psychopathy. The former will help you understand how you can mold or even make other people follow certain patterns, while the latter can help you understand how this mindsets are set into motion and in fact the person in question doesn’t even have to be a full-blown psychopath to replicate this behaviour.
It should be understood that sexual energy is really powerful, this energy can be used to create healthy bonds or you can use it to literally start a world war. Let’s observe Nature for a while, think of rivers. Rivers have a natural flow, gradually they go on finding their way towards the ocean or a lake.
The time the river transforms or arrives at the ocean or lake could be seen as a moment when the river discharges its energy, this flow may change at some point, but usually it happens at a gradual pace unless the flow is disrupted by some “natural disaster” or if humans come in.
Humans have the ability to distort a river’s natural flow, at times you’ll see this flow being redirected into a dam. For a long time this process may seem harmless, but there are times when things go wrong and you’ll see the mighty dams being destroyed by rivers, this is a consequence of disrupting a natural flow.
Likewise sexual energy is tampered with. There are institutions which will launch their cultural memes to distort this flow and there can also be people who mindlessly adopts these memes. In modern society you can see two main ways to tamper with this energy, one is to repress it and the other one is to overcharge it.
If this energy is repressed for a long enough period of time, then you can see people who gradually start to become neurotic, anxious and very stressed. In fact the body starts to get very tense and it can be quite difficult to relax it. If you want to study cases which are even more extreme, then take a look at armed forces.
You take young men and women and prohibit them to exhibit or engage in any type of sexual activity. The result? extremely stressed men and women who can’t channel this sexual energy in a healthy way, stressed beings who then will be given missions to murder people and they will do it because to an extent it is a way to channel this energy, as toxic as this process may be. In a nutshell you produce people who are very submissive, yet extremely violent if they are put into a dangerous situation.
On the other hand you can overcharge the body with this energy and find release into extreme sexuality. People who go through this process can become quite rebellious, but very aggressive. It is this overstimulation which can lead to machismo, people who won’t bent the knee but will seek to put everyone else down. This is akin to a flood which can destroy a dam, water pouring out from every angle.
Both of these dynamics can produce fascist dictators, some occupy positions of tremendous power. Other’s don’t, but can be found in the average family. One of the problems with modern culture is that both paradigms are being used as ideological bombs, people are encouraged to repress their sexual energy while at the same time they are encouraged to take it to the extreme. Some people are more brutalized than others, but this dynamic seems to be the norm. On the other hand repression or overstimulation can result in self-sadism and/or sadism towards other beings.
Then you can get into the subject of psychopathy. I’d say a great number of these “people” do discharge their energy and aren’t sexually repressed, but since the predator mindset is very “natural” to them, this energy will be taken to the extreme. Perhaps one of the best examples of “sexual psychopathy” is found in the man who was known as the Marquis de Sade: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquis_de_Sade These people prey at every level of society, from the poor environments to the mega rich environments. There’s no remorse which can hold down these monsters.
Now you could argue about doing an extensive background check and applying punishment to offenders, sexual or otherwise. But this is a tricky area and certainly is one which baffles me when people start to support either of these methods.
You can find yourself in a very precarious situation. Demanding extensive background checks and punishment result in societies who become very paranoid, these kind of mindsets are what lead people to accept Orwellian paradigms and in fact they can splinter communities because no one can trust each other anymore and there are powers who are happy to see this happening and then comes their propaganda machines to further divide society into paranoid groups.
You could also argue that physical punishment is necessary, including dead. But let’s not be quick to forget history. Certainly people would restrain themselves more out of fear, but this sort of practice is something which leads to inquisitions where guilty and innocent people are hanged, burned, chopped, crippled and murdered all the same.
There are powers who would like to see lustful crowds demanding blood in the name of justice, a nice decapitation makes a nice sadistic circus in the city square. I also notice a curious pattern, while some people in the world would like to demand punishment, they think: “Well the system should do it, someone should take care of it”. It is one thing to demand third-party executioners, but being honest who would have the courage and cold blood to administer punishment?
Now I’d like to make this very personal, let’s say someone is set to be publicly executed, whether this person is innocent or not is immaterial, since you are highly convinced of their culpability. So you find yourself demanding justice, but would you walk into the execution spot, look this person into the eyes, let them tell you their story and the proceed to shot them dead, cut their head, slit their throat or whatever while you keep staring into a pair of eyes?.
There are fine lines when it comes to this, the only exception being psychopaths, but they can be hard to spot at times and next thing you know you could have executions under the pretext of “war on psychopathy”. The road is steep.
If you ask me I’d say sexuality is a core element to have a sane psyche and if you pay attention you’ll notice that sexuality is deeply rooted into humanity’s state of decay. The tricky part comes when you try to balance this energy.
