This’s the very first of a three part sequence about the contextual influences modern society has on addictions and mood disorders, two) the chances of buy in, and three) the potential for soul renewal via (but not limited to) apple fritter marijuana strain consumption.
Aspect I: The Addictive System
“We are now living in a culture bloated with information but still starved for wisdom. We are connected 24/7, fear, yet anxiety, depression as well as loneliness is at an all time high. We need to course correct.” ~Elizabeth Kapu’uwailani Lindsey
The “addictive system” (one) will be the elephant in the family room. Addictions & mood disorders, like the rest, don’t appear in a vacuum. However we are likely to avoid the overarching societal’ space’ when just centered on specific problems, including depression and opioid or maybe anxiety as well as social media addictions.
Precisely what is this particular context?
It’s an invisible psychological atmosphere, the backdrop inside which everyone is unwittingly succumbing to addiction or even suffering mood problems. The increase in the number and antidepressant prescriptions of suicides profile the raising dark side of contemporary society.
It’s an intricate, interconnected web of public (private companies and government), aimed with the press in the advertising and marketing of info, services and products 24/7: a surround sound cacophony of specific messaging created to shape both public opinion as well as an ever stronger customer mentality.
Some call it propaganda.
Intangible, mental ideas are utilized to product sales and advertising, ones which apparently acquire all humans: the perceived need for: station in life, security, winning, the correct picture, getting very best, looking great, getting an advantage, staying in touch with the neighbor of yours, excellence, being the very first, etc. Advertising emails and then weave in the promise of supporting the’ consumer’ achieve just one or any other of these intangible interests whenever they buy the info of theirs, product or service. The ubiquity of these messages in contemporary society have grown to be normalized as well as welcomed.
