Almost 3 years ago, I was commenting about the degradation of society and that
"Cos I also believe that society creates itself. As long as enough people accept it, then it will become the new society. There is no such thing as the "good ol' days" as the new days have been created by the new folks who have new values in life. Unfortunately, I do not particularly like this as I was brought up in a different era and like most/all humans, I don't particularly like unnecessary change."
Seriously, Donald Trump has really taken this to a whole new level.
I don't even know where to begin.
1) talking about grabbing females by their p***y
2) forcibly kissing females
3) insulting war heros
4) interrupting Hillary Clinton during her debate
5) outright rude
Really, the list goes on and on and on (more so than in the other instances when I say the list goes on)
But you know what? I expected Donald Trump to win. I would have been surprised if Hillary won.
Why? Cos of the degradation of society.
Because there are MANY people like him.
Many people (not all) are racist. They don't say it out loud. They fight for equal rights. But when talking with their friends, they talk bad about other races. It's true. Don't deny it.
Many people like his trash talking disrespectful demeanor. Why? Cos they want to be able to do this too. People relate to him more than they relate to Hilary Clinton.
Who is political, polished, show the world what they want to see. OR in other words, FAKE.
In this new world where people "can be whatever they want to be, do whatever they want to do", people don't like fake. People want to be able to trash talk and say whatever they want. Similar to my previous post. People ACCEPT these things. No more do people expect others to be respectable and polished. You just need to find the right audience for yourself. As the world gets more connected, you WILL be able to find sufficient support doing whatever you want to do, and a community which thinks like you.
Gone are the days when comments which Donald Trump made would have made him immediately lose face and make him immediately unable to run for any political post. The new society is all about do whatever you want and you still have the chance to succeed. Look at Kanye West, rich, disrespectful, somewhat talented to some people.
Anyway, am I upset about Donald Trump's win?
No, not really
Do I think the world will come to an end cos of this?
No. Life goes on.
Will society get worse in respect to my own values?
Yes I think things will get worse cos enough parts of society allows it.
Am I particularly happy/unhappy about it?
A bit sad but I believe society always changes to the average of what society deems acceptable.
Sometime not too long ago, slaves were acceptable, etc etc.
Like what another of my previous post... In the end we are all dead. Life goes on until we die. Then the next generation will have to fumble along with whatever the new society has become.
In the meantime, I only have around 18ooo days left to enjoy this life so I try to be happy as much as I can and live the life which I want.
