About This Blog


This Bog has no intentions what so ever to be or appear to be a work from an academic point of view. It is about my personal point of view and an attempt to encourage others to post there personal point of view. It is an attempt mainly to encourage people to think for themselves. For people who are not simply sheep, who are sick to death of living in a world where we have as many experts on everything as the Catholic Church has Patron saints for just about everything. The art of independent thought is rapidly dying. There are no experts on this blog and I welcome non experts to express their personal point of view.  ANY comment is welcome regardless of whether you hate the blog or wish to critique it, add to it, joke about it, or enjoy reading it. I really don’t care.

  1. I want to thank you for your insight. This post is only a beginning for me. The beginning of an adventure That starts with the basis that we all are unique. Your comment does address some of the more complex problems that arise out of pressure from ones environment. That environment being the collective consciousness of those who live around us. Carl Jung and Carl rogers both prominent in this field have each studied this phenomenon. Carl Jung spent much of his life’s work on the effects of peer pressure. He coined the term “collective consciousness ” to mean that in any society one person eventually looses their personal identity in a “crowd “. He theorizes that, in that instance , we end up with two personalities. One , who we really are , and the other that develops by a behavior that is dependent upon the approval of others. He believes that in order to have a healthy self worth we need to be able to separate who we really are as opposed to who people want us to be. Carl Rogers adds his philosophy to this by stating a number of interesting points. He acknowledges that we need validation from others. The most important validation coming from ones parents. He is dead against judgmental discipline. In other words A parent should show unconditional acceptance. That is not to say let a child is left to do what it wants. But discipline should not include judgements like “Johny your a BAD boy for what you did. In reality he is not a bad boy but a boy who makes mistakes and needs correction. Unfortunately most of our problems with self esteem later in life originate from this kind of upbringing. If at an early time in our life we are taught that love is conditional then in turn later in life our self esteem depends on the conditions set forth by a society. Never the less what ever the out come, in any society we can choose our friends thereby controlling our environment. I see this problem with children entering puberty or adolescence where the need for self actualization, that is becoming a person independent of their parents only shifting their dependance now on their peers.
    I found in one high school an interesting solution. Teens with similar tastes and personalities banded together. But from all appearances it would seem that the groups would clash and create fights. All in all my blog represents an ideal. A foundation if it were applied would help humans to put their differences aside. It is an interesting exercise in the use of reason to unite us all. An idea that every one is unique and has some unique “gift” to contribute to the “whole ” Man can in reality accomplish far more through cooperation rather than from dissidence. If we disappear in a society and become “clones ” of that society then that society becomes inefficient. This all goes back to the issue of conditional self esteem. The next adition to my post will deal with an important need we all have , VALIDATION.

  2. In my friend’s web blogs they already have provided me on the website rolls, but mine usually is located at the bottom on the listing and does not selection when I place as it does for some individuals. Is this a placing that I have to difference or is this a choice they may have considered? . deddfgdgdgfd
