Vloggaaminen ja internetin narsistinen kilpailu (edit)

Verryttelykirjoittaminen jatkuu. Kommentoin Social Matter -sivustolla "Vlogging, Making Narcissism Pay Since 2005!" -kirjoitusta seuraavasti. Olen käsitellyt tätä aihetta aiemminkin, mutta kehittelin teemaa pidemmälle ja sanon siten asioita, joita en ole aiemmin sanonut:
Vlogging: Making Narcissism Pay Since 2005!V
Vlogging: Making Narcissism Pay Since 2005!

"I was aware of the vlogging phenomenom, but not its extent. As I gather information about, among other things, psychology, I have watched vlogging videos related to psychology, and noticed the existence of all kinds of make-up tutorial, self-help, mishap, funny things, life event, etc. -vloggers along the way. One example of psychological vlogging:

As people become more atomized and their social relationships become thinner and less meaningful (e.g. relationships via text messages and internet commenting even with family members, let alone others), people start to replace the missing normal, good, regular, face-to-face, and touch, kiss and embrace -social relationships more with the desire to been seen and heard in the internet. They dont have enough social closeness, and so the need and craving for social closeness become more extreme, like very thirsty person needs water more. The replacement, to be seen and heard in the internet, is not nearly as satisfying as close relationships, so it is needed quantitatively more than close relationships and still, if and when they get it more, it is not as satisfying as close relationships. We could compare it to a very thirsty person, who drinks false water much more than normal water, and still it leaves him thirsty. This is exacerbated by the fact that, unlike mostly in normal social relationships, you have to compete for attention and appreciation in the internet. You have to be more extreme; more beautiful; more extravagant; more revealing; more shameless; more intelligent; more stupid; more knowing; you either pretend you dont have any defects or you courageously show all of them and invent more; you pretend more; you paradoxically try to be more normal and balanced than normal people; you hide yourself and your secrets more; you lie more about yourself, your doings and other things; etc. This dissembling, lying and upholding the masks, covering yourself in differents masks depending on the situations and their competitive requirements, is strenuous and stressing, and it prevents, together with the less than human communication method of internet, the forming of good relationships, where you can let your guard down and reveal yourself as you are, be what you are, nothing more and nothing less, and still you are almost always lovingly accepted, supported and respected. Hence people become more and more extreme attention addicts who never get enough attention and appreciation, they are never satisfied and content. These are important reasons for the rising narcissism in Western countries.

This narcissistic competition soon becomes one of the false dreams of the Western countries. You or anyone could be famous and rich vlogger, who gets all the attention, all the false love and false relationships he needs. And the massess say, “Look at all those ordinary people who have become famous. This is the first time in history, when anybody really can be famous.” Not so. Those who get the attention, have certain natural and/or acquired special talents and qualities, however disorted, stupid, meaningless, destructive, etc. they may be (E.g. extreme shamelessness on the bad side, and soothing and empathizing voice and words possibly on the good side or possibly on the bad side), which make them famous and popular. These “talents” or talents are rare or fairly rare. The massess often think, “I am now dissatisfied, but if I would be as famous as X, I would be so, so satisfied!”. It is very likely that he never reaches his dream goal, but if he would, he would see that it is mostly a lying dream, which does not give him what he wants and needs, especially in and of itself. But as the massess strive to get attention and srive to be famous, they are busy and always running all of their free time in the internet running wheel. This prevents them from doing anything else and all of their time is wasted in vanity, which is one way of saying that this is ideal manipulating tool for the liberal elites to keep the massess contended, which was spontaneously created by the massess themselves, when they were given the internet framework to use. Thus we can see that the massess have a tendency to create virtual prisons for their psychological needs, if given the opportunity. As the vlogger stars are desperate to be more famous and more rich, it is easy for liberal elites to buy them relatively cheaply to promote any cause which they declare to be good. The vlogger stars often self-censor to begin with, so that they could sell their performances as widely as possible, and when the liberal elites can withhold their relatively ample monies, if the vloggers political views are not liberal, this worsens the self-censorship. All this together means that vlogging is mostly a reactionary and destructive force, which maintains the static status quo."

Yksi syy tuollaisille söpöille eläinkuville ja -videoille on varmaan sekin, että ne "yhdistävät" ihmisiä harmittomalla tavalla. Ne eivät liity ihmisiin eivätkä ihmisten maailmaan kuten politiikkaan (politiikasta vloggaaminen aiheuttaisi enemmän riitoja ja negatiivista palautetta vloggaajalle ja riitelyä myös kommenttiosastossa jne. toisinkuin vaikkapa kauneudesta tms. vloggaaminen.)Kaikki tai lähes kaikki tuntevat empatiaa söpöjä eläimiä kohtaan, joten tällaiset kuvat ja videot kokoavat ihmiset yhteen tuntemaan empatiaa, unohtaen ristiriitaisen ihmisten maailman.

Kommentoija,

on toki myös noin. Lisäksi eläinkuvat ja lemmikkieläimet toimivat monille lapsettomille pareille tai sinkuille puutteellisena vauvankorvikkeena.
