What’s The Mentality
The mind set of being or inducing suppression. Suppression often being conditions of discomfort, struggle, barely surviving, and/or simply just surviving.
Such reduced lifestyles seem maintained or sustained in order to induce better lifestyles for the oppressors. thus creating an inbalance and a system where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
This condition exist sometimes without knowing and other times with intent.
At least this is true of the slave mentality I’m referring to.
It all can be done without noticing it or paying much mind to it. Solutions are not found because the need to seek one is not focused on. For the most part this is how the condition remains. We must admit there has been progress in comparison to conditions in history. Sometime things slow down and settle, we simply need to dust off and polish up from time to time.
So What Is The Matter At Hand?
Is This One Of Those "Times"?
We need to pay a little more attention to the conditioning of our mindsets to accept being a puppet master or puppet.
Both sides of the coin play a part in the slave mentality being executed. It is fear based either way.
The Master fears an inability to maintain comfort if the other does not exist. The slave fears punishment leading to less than what is already a condition of scarcity.
Are we recognizing such conditions in how we work, live, play, and execute our being. Do we keep ourselves in check? When this is bought to your attention, does it matter to you, why? It is not a racial issue. This kind of control exsts in the work place, at home amongst family, within social classes, and any where fear based co-dependant emotions effects one to domnates and another to submit.
What is the solution?
I have a theory and opinion not facts
On both sides of the coin the release of fear is the first step. When this happens, as it has in the past, the oppressed says this condition is not acceptable I will face the fear to get up and beyond.
The oppressor also says this is not acceptable, I will go against the grain of and aim for the betterment of the whole.
Both take the risk and face the fear in order to live and “let live”
It seems simple but has lead many to a life time committment towards a more humanitarian way to go
