As basic, foundational values of America deteriorate, the self concept of her citizen’s begins to become distorted. Not knowing exactly what you are describing when you say “I’m and American”. like looking at your image in a carnival mirror,the toxic personality will always see a vision of a distorted self. So it is with a culture that has lost sight of it’s basic values. BELOW, should you choose to venture a look, is an old trailer from a film by Fredrico Fellini, “Satyricon” which shows the distortion of the self image that happens in the decline of a cultureless culture.
Such is the distortion of the human image in pre-war Germany as this still from the movie “Cabaret” illustrates Germanys reaction to a dismal economy and multitude of political opposites all vying for power. A single clear image of what it is to be a good citizen are lost in a world of mercurial reality, where right and wrong are ill-defined.
And so it goes……not certain of their identity, angry because they look down upon themselves for achieving nothing are compelled to present a twisted façade and demand you accept and validate them.
Sexual activities I can neither show or describe here, happen at will at LGBT pride parades as participants pitiably mimic their inner self concept externally. Such it is with the dis-integration of a culture. When nothing is wrong…then nothing is right.
