why do we ignore our lonliness?
April 2, 2013 |
These days, when we pass a person on the street we usually don‘t say hello or even look them in the eye. In the city, we live in a world of strangers, the vast majority of whom we have very little to no personal relationship with whatsoever. Occasionally we may get into brief, interesting exchanges with the person behind the counter at the café or the grocery store, but these exchanges are predicated upon our purchase of something the shop is selling. This makes me wonder if such conversation is merely a byproduct of the capitalist machine in motion, a human byproduct of commerce whereby the exchange of cash sparks the expressive faculties while also providing an adequate social lubricant. While it is, of course, natural for human beings to talk and communicate with one another, unless we have a good excuse or reason to do so we seem to maintain our typical everyday stranger status with the entire general public surrounding us.

Go ahead and chamber that round, UP.Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

Could it be that they see how UP has mutilated it's body and crossed the street to stay as far away from it as possible? I know I would.Solve a man's problem with violence and help him for a day. Teach a man how to solve his problems with violence, help him for a lifetime - Belkar Bitterleaf

I've found that people tend to be more cold and distant in bigger cities. Who lives in bigger cities? Liberals.
Catholics in churches are like that too. That's because they're often up north, where they're more cold and distant. You see more liberals up north.
But down here, we have a lot of conservative, Protestant Christians in a bunch of small towns and they act like they're your best friend and that they've known you forever. They'll come up to you and talk to you. They don't care if they don't know you from Adam. Sometimes, I like it. Every once in a while, I freak out. lol.
So, blame the distant stuff on the liberals.In memory of Ahmed Merabet, Rafael Ramos, and Wenjian Liu.
