A rough outline over modern man

Now, don´t be tempted to think that I was in a bad mood writing this – on the contrary, I was content in a state of great calm and joyous lucidity, being able to put in words what appears to be the diagnose of our age. Some of you may find my words rather harsh, appalling and hard to digest, but someone has to say the naked truth.

If we want something else, we´ll have to confront and deal with our present reality without deluding ourselves.

Modern man is

elusive, remarkably neurotic, self-absorbed, doubtful and insecure, vague, cynical, extremely stingy, always on the go, vain, – vanity is his religion – , fussy, stubborn, aggressive, infamous, arrogant, manipulative, dull, unpredictably violent, predictably fatuous, stunted, limited and limiting, slippery, uneducated, distorted, perverted and inverted, chaotic, dissimulating and irresponsible, yet trying hard “to save” the world.

Moreover, he is

flat, aloof, abrupt, callous, stupid, banal, false, superficial, untalented, shallow, uncreative, humorless, hollow, spiritually anorexic, self-infatuated, nasty, judgmental, restless, sufficient and narcissistic thus impossible to reach.

He isolates himself in his madness, hating his isolation – but at the same time desperately protecting it – he is frustrated and abandoned, stressed – going around his tail, being in a hurry to reach nowhere -, he is inhibited and inhibiting, he is afraid, his petty ego hating every true expression of passion, his icon is pornography, he is easily hurt, he is suspicious, ungrateful, parasitical – yet claiming to work hard -, bloated, lonely, cowardly, vulgar, unimaginative, ashamed of himself and utterly unhappy.

He has become a pitiful, incestuous caricature of himself, a control-loving dispassionate mother-fucker (see Oedipus) suffering of hubris.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
