People are all brainwashing each other

In reality, people just brainwash each other. People might sit there and tell you what is "the right thing to do" or what a person is supposed to do, but people don't actually care to do what they tell other people to do. They don't actually care what is "right" or what is "wrong". But they pretend to. So what do people do? They mask themselves. They make themselves appear the way they think society wants them to appear, but they shouldn't waste their time because SOCIETY does not really care. Society just acts like they care for what is right or wrong. At the end of the day, people are lying to each other.

Is It Normal?

  • I will say yes to the brainwashing, not in an insidious way but there are such things as groupthink and people thinking like the people around them, etc but brainwashing is a deliberate or perhaps ignorant attempt at distorting truths and then pushing that agenda.
    Anyone immune to this or from a different perspective will immediately see the problem.

    So you have to be careful of what you believe. Even out of our own friends mouths, gurus on the internet, so forth. But it's also so easy to want to believe in something.

    Not sure if you're talking about what's happening politically and so forth, but I see it happening there as well. New ideas spreading around, those ideas taking storm and becoming viral/mainstream, and everyone is some kind of blabbering talking head that thinks they know what they're talking about, meanwhile the outsiders are like: are they brainwashed? WTF are they talking about? (insert hot button topic here)

    But the point I think you're mistaken is there are plenty of people who do care. Who do try to do right and avoid wrong and such and such. The problem isn't that. The problem is being disconnected from ourselves, our instincts and common sense, where we've lost the ability to question what we are now preaching; free-thinking basically.

      That is straight up bullshit. There no people that truly care. They only act like they do. And they only avoid doing wrong because it is what society tells them to do.
