Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Throwing out a Saturday morning topic.....


Why is it that it seems everyone these days is always someone else? It seems that there is an underlying motive or personality that always rears in the times when doors are finally being opened.

Are the days of the handshake deal really gone? If not, where are these people that mean what they say and say what they mean?

Trust, to humanities detriment, has become a multifaceted term that at one time meant something. Something that was attached to a length of time. These days, it's 'trust while convenient'. Don't hand out something whole, unless you are ready to get it back in jagged pieces, tied to mendacious reasoning.

"Let's make a deal", "I'll pay you back", "I mean what I say"


Why is this getting so bad?
 Quoting: Gradient


define 'real' or 'reality' ?
What I find fantastic is any notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.

We're all gonna die. The only question is when & how you check out. Do you want it on your feet? Or on your knees... begging?! I ain't much for begging! Nobody ever gave me nothing!

Some people are afraid of dying; more are afraid of living... being "fully alive."

It has taken me the last third of my life to really "be" who I am and then work within that "being" rather than trying to convert myself into some other image, which for me would be the ultimate idolatry.

Women seem to think they need to dress in suits and wear makeup to get ahead in this world and behave in a certain way.

So, I quit wearing makeup, I wear comfortable khaki's and tennis shoes and I am me. My work ethic is what keeps me my job, not my dress.

It really pissed some of these folks off when I made staff.

they still exist. I am currently in a million dollar deal, that was started 4 years ago, and all I gave, and asked for, was a handshake. Honor is not dead, but it is rare

Because parents have not been teaching their children to love truth any longer.

Because children are not being taught to give gratitude for that which is given.

Because children ARE being taught to always take the short road to gratification no matter the cost to others.

Those are just a few....

Essentially you're talking about trust - which is something we all wish for from our peers - and usually get - there's always some 'bad apples'...but they'll get burnt along the way like the rest of us.

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Wow, haven't seen you post in a quite a while. Good to see you again Gradient. There are a few "real" people left, but most today are hypnotized by popularism and entertainment.

Why is this? Our culture has degraded from one of honour and honesty to one of depravity and self absorbtion. People use to have principles and stood up for them. Now situtation ethics and immorality on all fronts rules the day as gutless weasels lie cheat and steal for what they want without regard to others. People use to be responsible for themselves and looked out for their family, neighbors and even people they didn't know. Now, not only will no one stop to help a lady with a flat tire, they won't even get out of the car to fix their own. Out comes the cell phone and it's someone elses responsibility, not thiers.

People use to trust in God and were thankful for His blessings. Now people have shoved God off into a distant memory of grandparents. They blame God for anything that doesn't go the way they want and take credit for anything that does.

It's going to get worse before it gets better. Pride comes before a fall and we in that process now.

Re: Is anyone real anymore?
Let's think about thie soecial mores that lead to fakeness by behavior modificiation. Firstly with women. They are made to dress as something they aren't, something that would resemble a whore in anther era.

They must shave all visible body hair from calves, bikini line and armpits, much like a working hooker would have appeared. Then they are encouraged to wear makeup which is essentially creating a fake face that is more appealing sensually. Then they are admired for wearing high heels, even with the bottoms painted the same red color as was worn in the red light district of Paris. This is so that their walk is minced and butts protrude to make them more sexually objectified.

Then you have the nearly socially madatory bra. This only lifts, enhances and displays the breast in such a way that the womean is viewed not as a mother but as a freak with huge female characteristics that are to be hidden and yet flaunted.

So you end up with women appearing completely fake and having an image that is merely seductive and not reflecting of the woman's true nature. So now the women have to compensate psychologically by acting somewhat fake and coquettish to make up for the costume they are thrurst in.

That leaches onto the men and children who have to deal with them. The men judge the women as fake and start declining in their own honesty and decency to compensate. Then the kids see that their parents are fakes, so they just run wild and only think of themselves.

Then you have a whole society ruined to enhance the sales of razor, lingerie and makeup mnufacturerers. Don't doubt that that is a million or even billion dollar industry all together.

People are not accepted for who they really are. They are judged constantly. This leads to them adapting by adopting alternate personas, ones that are uncomcortable and don't really fit.
