Trust is Fickle It's just like it sounds. I'm outside of my belief-bubble. The question is, do I want to go back in? Can I go back? Does belief have a limit? Curiosity certainly tests our limits. Belief...is scrutiny; it's an egg shell. Don't live in a shell if you're afraid of the dark. Belief is an eggshell. Do you see the majesty? Intelligence is a curious field of study.
No wonder there's division...pity is PROUD. People love being the victim. It's their identity. Coupled with the fact the authority (they trust) must be certain (or perceived as certain) for victims to remain confident in their chosen prophet (i.e. Donald Trump). If expectations are not met, victimhood will resort to accusing others of wrong doing. Victims elect based on "trust" (and it's very fickle). Authority's livelihood hinges on the approval of hypocrites because victim's are uneducated and emotional; which drives their incentive to hold other people’s feet to the fire (who admits their mistake). If the shoe were on the other foot, victims would choose to learn mistakes are something to avoid(with nothing to gain). Prophets are aware and take advantage of that. How can we learn from mistakes if no one has the courage to admit to them (i.e. income vs ethics)? News is happy to distort the facts to paint their opposition as inferior. For ratings. Victims watch the news to reaffirm their trustnot...question the validity of the source. Alternative media is the cornucopia of distrust (of authority). I honestly don't know how empires work but I'm not cheering for their downfall. You are assuming government is the highest authority in charge. Does your government take orders? When they are given orders…at least they'll know what to do. If they give orders…at least they'll know who to blame (someone victims don't trust). Remember the adage you have to fail to succeed? No one (youtrust) seems to fail in government. Why? There’s always someone else to blame (if you give orders). If you take orders you are certain what to do. That certainty comes across as confidence. Confidence is the cue victims look for having no experience understanding the difference between knowing what to do, and knowing who to blame. Either way it brews confidence. Victims don't care how they avoid admitting to their mistakes, and that's why trust is fickle. Cognitive dissonance reveals why maintaining trust (requires hypocrisy) to avoid the sunken-dread of falling prey to a mistake: Oh no! I elected a false prophet?! Uh-uh...That's disinformation! That's fake news! You're a conspiracy theorist! You're a Racist! Sheep! Cultist! You're wrong I'm right.
A leader that takes orders follows. A leader that gives orders disregards victim's trust. Why? Promises are meant to be broken because it keeps victims...victims. Nothing satisfies hypocrites more than complaining about other people's mistakes. Do you see why hypocrisy is so pervasive? Their trust lies within forgiven mistakes (i.e. Justin Trudeau re-elected after infamous "Black-face" scandal). Victim's forgive solely to avoid experiencing the guilt and shame they themselves deserve; there is noaccountability. There's incentive to forgive those they trust because the guilt and shame gives them an identity designed to receive pity and donate their forgiveness with pride to others (like a "mini-prophet"). Receiving forgiveness however devalues a victim's journey. Why? Pity isproud of woe. Accepting forgiveness reveals pity was never an identity to begin with, just a safe space. Victims are too invested into woe because Prophets cater to their plight (like children).
Pity is not an identity, nor is it a mechanism to survive. Because victims specifically are afraid of the sunken-dread ironically it reveals they fear progress. Now with COVID-1984...choosing the wrong decision willresult in death; sunken-dread has gripped society (of victims). Are they praying people will die to confirm what the prophet (they trust) assures them is true? After all what's more important? Trust or Truth? Pity is proud, but is it worth dying over?
