NEW INTRUDERS: WHY WE ARE OPPOSING TO NEW NORMS

“The new, new.”


the introduction of 

America is a society where we are quite apprehensive to change in the beginning stages of anything new. But then enough time goes by and we start to have a push back once we see people’s lives affected. And that is when he change starts to happen. We don’t notice it because we are living in real time, but after 50 years or even 100 years it all makes sense. Then we look back and say to ourselves, “I can’t believe people use to fight over that type of stuff.” But real time, we tend to fight over everything. Why are we so aggressive when it comes to introducing new norms into our world? A lot of it has to do with a status quo. We are a status quo species.

easy peezy

Once there is a way of life that one is used to living, then we go, ok this makes sense. But the problem is, there will always be a disenfranchised group of people. We look at them initially and say, really, come on, we’re going to introduce this into society. We are used to things going well with the way they are now. So why must things change. Now I have to get used to a whole new way of life. It becomes stressful o have to go through all this. Especially if you are older and used to the way life is as you know it. The new way now means everything you once knew in your life means nothing anymore. And if you are 20 years old that’s fine, but what about 50 years old? That can be a major culture shock.

get over it, you can’t stop it

Hey people, you want to stop things from happening, you fight, well guess what, get over it. You will have a hard time keeping things the same as generations continue to change. So you will either be forced to change or be weened out of existence. Understand that things are changing and you have no control. So you can fight and watch yourself push back or you can learn to adjust.

CULTURE CRITICS: PEOPLE FROM THE OUTSIDE

 

Brown Wooden Gavel

“Not my cup of tea.”


those who have no interest

A lot of people have no interest in pushing culture forward, and they could care less what happens to the culture. But when these same individuals really do want a say in what the culture does, then t becomes a problem. Because if you have no interest and don’t care for it, then what’s it to them if it ultimately fails. So we cannot allow these types of people to get their hands on the culture. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but they should not have a seat at the table. But who are these people and how do we spot these types of people? Well, it can be difficult because sometimes these people come in disguise.

listen close to the critique

People don’t always just come out and say I don’t like this cultural thing or this thing. Sometimes people have a critique where they try to circumvent. They create some type of work around so they don’t have to outwardly say what they don’t like. So you have to have the objective ear to understand what it is they are saying to you. For example, some people may try to say they don’t like your culture because it far too rowdy. But then the music they listen to is just a gritty. Then what they do is create some type of work around to deflect away from the conversation so they don’t have to deal with what you asked them. But sometimes it’s harder, but make sure when you listen, don’t be too biased. Be able to decipher between objective opinion and plain out hate.

do they matter

We have to think long and hard if these people who hate truly matter to us. Because if they are aiding the culture, and have no impact, why do we care. We shouldn’t unless the culture is weak in the first place. But what we should do is act as if they don’t exist. Because rest assured you have no impact on their culture.
