REACTIONARY SOCIETY: WHY DO WE REACT BEFORE WE THINK?

Image result for CONFLICT

“Fighting over conversation.”


fight then flight

In America today, we have pride ourselves on not agreeing with what we hear, then becoming to reactionary. We are soon ready to fight just because we disagree with what someone is saying about a point we are making on a particular topic. I reality, the reason that we live in America in because we have that right to have that freedom to speak. But why has the reaction to hearing something we don’t like have become this movement? Or better yet, why are we so afraid of engaging in an intellectual conversation? To me, that reeks of fears that translate in a serious mental block.

fearing the mind

The brain is a very powerful tool, and when used to do bad, we can have disastrous impacts on society. So it comes as no surprise that we have use it to attack those we are most at odds with in life. But what’s interesting is that we don’t even want to have the conversation from fear. And fear is not hearing something we don’t like, but fear of not being able to rationalize our points. When we are up against a person who is smarter than us, we fear hearing their points because the brain is designed to store rational questions, decisions, perspectives, etc. And when we hear something we don’t like, instead of having the conversation, we shoot it down immediately. Because our adversary might say something that is the burden of proof that sticks in our minds, rendering it impossible to shake loose. So we galvanize before the person can introduce their perspective.

handling the situation

When faced with the issue of people attacking you, you never resort to places like a Twitter. And that is a place where so many people get into trouble when explaining themselves. Why, well because the characters are less then 110 words. You can’t get across an intellectual thought with few words. But even in the intellect, you will have people try to twist words. So in that case, you have to willing to lose some people. You’re going to reach everybody in society, and catering to everyone will get you into trouble. As well as also forcing you to lose your piece of imnd, and ultimately becoming the people who attack you.
