Since when have we had these bunch of kids in an adult body running around? I couldn’t really tell.
But the problem is apparently not unnoticeable. It’s so prevalent, that I believe some people have already gotten used to it.
First, I have a question to ask you all. Who’s the biggest man-child in the United States of America?
This guy. Insert Donald J Trump.
The definition of a man-child is simple. One person appears as an adult, however is actually a child inside.
And more precisely, a man-child is a demented psychological state where a person possesses following traits:
- Does not take up any responsibility
- Trying to pass the blame for their own underdeveloped judgement
- Able to connect with his children, but only as another child, not as a father
- Exploit others niceness
Why we are not children anymore?
Frankly for everyone, it is completely ok to still be a child inside but appearing as an adult.
Mental maturation is different from physical maturation.
In the conventional teachings, people are taught to be adults when they are young. This is the process of how we try to mature our children mentally so they can better prepare for the battles in future.
But, what is an adult?
An adult means responsibilities, obligations, understandings for others, and more.
I think, the maturation of a human, is the process of making a man more harmonious in working with others.
We are adults because we take responsibilities and obligations. There are certain things we don’t do, and certain things we treasure. And we shoulder the burdens that the younger can’t take and the older too clunky/old to bear.
We are adults because we understand each other better. Not like children, whilst most of the times it’s white and black for them, adults have better understandings of others’ needs. Children take most things for granted and they would agitate once their demands are not fulfilled. As adults, we not only grow the body, but also have more tolerance inside of us. Adults try to make things work. This keen sense of co-operation is what shoulders human civilization.
Humans survive based on unity, in other words, cooperation. We are actually pretty fragile beings if we act alone.
Cooperation passes the fire from generations to generations.
There is a point why we cooperate. We want to better survive and support ourselves.
If we are mere children, nothing can ever be worked out. Children are selfish at their core. Typically babies.
This epidemic of man-child makes people believe in irrationality now. And human kindness and decency are exploitable so you should do as much as you can to exploit them.
Men are easily moldable, compliant even. So if one certain ideology takes control of the general atmosphere, what happens next is the tragedy that many people would follow suit. This combination of believers and compliers makes up an impregnable force that deters the rest of the society.
People are so easily influenced that they believe in the success of a malevolent attempt. That success, is regarded as truth if it sustains.
In our world, things are quite simple. Take science for example, science itself is the laws of nature, but the laws aren’t biased. Science is neither evil, nor good. What defines science, is the people behind it, their motivations.
So, even if morally wrong things succeed, or that the exception does break the common conception, this “impossibility” will be regarded as the chain breaker of the old orders. People will, want to take part in that movement.
You see, democracy, or anything that’s free, is delicate. Democracy in itself is rather fragile, it’s much more fragile than authoritarian ideology. Democracy is easily influenced by propaganda, because there isn’t a central oppression to make people behave in certain ways.
When you are free, the amount of damage you can receive is similar to the amount of benefits you can gain.
What everyone needs to be on alert, is the ever-expanding epidemic of this irrationality. This behavior of man-child. This simple-minded exploitive mentality. This might be, in many ways, able to alter your way of thinking. And when you finally realize it, you may have to comply with the values that you don’t agree with.
Or take it more literally, the people you hate, try to turn you into one of them. Whilst you resist, there is not much ways for you to counter it. Because you are doing nothing actually against it.
It’s like the old poem from WW2,
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
This video was intended to publish before the mid-term election, however it turned out some interesting results from the election. This means later in time there will be quite some fights on democracy and how people can actually hold on to their own values.
