Even if, like me, you have been raised believing more in “honne”(WYSIWYG) than “tatemae”…..Now, you will understand the wisdom of “If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say, Don’t Say Anything At All!”……..;+)
Even though, the “eugenics” recommended here, are not so subtle, it indicates a very strong leaning on the part of “old” cultures, all over the world, toward racism and discrimination in favor of so many old cultures and civilizations traditions. It shouldn’t be a surprise,…………,unfortunately!!!! ;+)
Change takes a very ong time………..How about “millions years”??????!!!!!………;+)
Even though we are separated today, as the video above shows, we are all reunited in the future,,,,,,,So some people are still hoping that will not be physical, only, but psychological, as well…….;+)
So far the only two (2) diseases eradicated have been smallpox and rinderpest (cattle plague) even though poliomyelitis is close to be eradicated also, unfortunately, like bad habits, it is still active, and even revived, according to some people…..
“Addiction” is not a disease for individuals only, it infects cultures and civilizations also, look at the most common sign of it………denial!!!!……..;+)
“Addiction is the continued use of a mood altering substance or behavior despite adverse consequences, or a neurological impairment leading to such behaviors.““Addictions can include, but are not limited to, drug abuse, exercise addiction, food addiction, sexual addiction, computer addiction, and gambling. Classic hallmarks of addiction include impaired control over substances or behavior, preoccupation with substance or behavior, continued use despite consequences, and denial.Habits and patterns associated with addiction are typically characterized by immediate gratification (short-term reward), coupled with delayed deleterious effects (long-term costs).”
“The term addiction is also sometimes applied to compulsions that are not substance-related.”
“In these kinds of common usages, the term addiction is used to describe a recurring compulsion by individuals to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences.”
“Compulsive behaviors are a need to reduce apprehension caused by internal feelings a person wants to abstain or control. A major cause of the compulsive behaviors is said to be obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD).“
“Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry; by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety; or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions. Symptoms of the disorder include excessive washing or cleaning; repeated checking; extreme hoarding; preoccupation with sexual, violent or religious thoughts; relationship-related obsessions; aversion to particular numbers; and nervous rituals, such as opening and closing a door a certain number of times before entering or leaving a room. These symptoms can be alienating and time-consuming, and often cause severe emotional and financial distress. The acts of those who have OCD may appear paranoid and potentially psychotic. However, OCD sufferers generally recognize their obsessions and compulsions as irrational, and may become further distressed by this realization.”………
“Anxiety disorder is an umbrella term that covers several different forms of a type of common psychiatric disorder characterized by excessive rumination, worrying, uneasiness, apprehension and fear about future uncertainties either based on real or imagined events, which may affect both physical and psychological health. “………….
Maybe, we should advise the standardization and large distribution in the world populations of ………”Standardized screening clinical questionnaires such as the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale or the Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale that can be used to detect anxiety symptoms, and suggest the need for a formal diagnostic assessment of anxiety disorder.”……..;+)
Of course, that would create chaos, as most cultures, civilizations and individuals, in our world today, would rate in the Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale,
75-80 Extreme Anxiety Levels range and would fail……..;+)
