@bibliolater @bookstodon It's similar to the surface level or repressed psychology of the average American. There saved you a book read.

@bibliolater @bookstodon But the question is did you grok the mind of the average American?
It is all on the surface to study among the top 10% of the rich folks, their appetite for consumption is so inflated it is not exaggeration to call it immoral or inhuman.

@chocolatebar @bookstodon It may well be the condition of many humans beings, not just the top 10% or the average American.

@bibliolater @bookstodon Yes, it is their condition. I was originally planning to expand that idea to include all across the world in case people misunderstood it to mean - ooh only Americans bad we're good little children of God. In a long form post with as much detail and references as possible. Because there is innate tendency in most people to doubt facts that even they themselves at some mental level know to be correct.
But that requires more resources and time than I can currently spare.

It is just that I had India and America in mind while writing that because if affluent Americans start doing some thing that is a status symbol, Indians blindly follow it. Even Indian intellectuals do that to save time, especially the ones leaning to and being sustained by the Left, but they don't realize it is at the cost of their integrity and authority. I think it might be a case of foreign capital funding domestic intellectuals, ie, intellect owned by money.

I love an intellect that is subservient only to the Truth.

Thank you.
