3 Reasons Your common sense society Is Broken (And How to Fix It)
As a society we are all a little bit self-aware. The way we think and behave is a reflection of who we are. When society says that you’re a little bit self-aware you get to keep doing whatever you want.
The problem is not a lack of self-awareness in itself. It’s that society is not looking at you as the “other”. The problem is you’re different. And you have a right not to be the same.
One of the big things that causes people to be self-aware is being aware of the different ways they behave. We all do stupid, obnoxious things. We all get mad at people we don’t like and get angry at the people we do. We all have our own quirks and idiosyncrasies. So what? Its not like we’re going to change.
The thing is the way we behave is not the way society should behave. If you look at how society treats others you will find that the people that are the most self-aware are the ones that are treated the worst.
Common sense society might be the best example of this. It’s in reality an individualized social system based on the notion that we are all equally rational beings, and that we should treat each other with respect. The problem is that this system doesn’t really work. It creates the exact opposite of what it was intended to do. In a real world, if you do something stupid you get punished and you are punished for it.
The problem is that the people that are treated the worst are the ones that have the least self-awareness. Most of us are aware of our own actions, routines, impulses, and reactions, but not the fact that we can also act on them and take some blame for it. The same thing goes for people that treat us with respect, but not too much.
One of the unfortunate things about the common sense society is that it makes it seem like, “If you do this to me or my friends then I will go out and punish you.” That is not the case. Instead if you do something to a friend, they will see it as a very bad thing. They will be more likely to be mean to you as well.
A common sense society is a society that recognizes that, if you do this to me or my friends then I will go out and punish you. A society that can actually act.
There are two ways to go about creating a common sense society. There is the “go out and do it” way and the “go out and do it once and then forget it” way. The first is usually the most efficient way to go and the second is the most likely way of creating the society you want.
The first method is one of the most effective when it comes to society. When you go out and do something stupid to someone and it comes back to bite you then you need to either give them a little bit of warning or you need to do something about it.
