Do our actions really conform with our beliefs? Could we actually be out there doing something against ourselves without knowing it? Have our illusions of choice and systematic social conditioning under suicidal current constraints lead us to stagnation in regards to critical thinking? And what does Bambi have to do with the environment?
We find that out and more when we dive into German romanticism, milking cows to temper environmentalists, go in-depth about our good friend Walt Disney and ask the question, could we be doing something different?
This week, it’s all out on the table on the Mike Dunafon radio show!
The neglectful illusion of our free thought
Does the appearance of choice in the two party political system we live in today actually distort our belief system and subsequently mask the fact that we are offered no real choices? Have we failed to understand that our political system is a set of fallacies under the two-party system because our understanding of the actual process has been lost?
On this weeks show we take a look at historical evidence to challenge conventional thinking and better examine these issues. I believe you will find that a new perspective on these issues lends the opportunity for us all to re-examine how exactly we got to this current dilemma.
Understanding that our free thoughts acting as an illusion for our systematic social conditioning is very real will give contexts to our current issues of continual leadership voids. Not only do we examine contradictions from current and historical political movements, but we also detail and examine how our political system has failed to evolve and empower societies with real choices.
How German Romanticism Met Nationalism
Prior to the 1870’s Germany did not exist as a unified nation, but instead was comprised of a number of independent provinces, principalities and City- States.
If a common language brought unity amongst these groups then the public school system ( started by Otto Van Bismarck) would be the conduit for these provinces to become indoctrinated with mythological rustic nationalism. This would develop a nation that heavily believed in a unified destiny which reached its height between 1933- 1945.
Here we explore the many proponents of this intensified nationalism, such as fascist philosophy and mans alienation from nature, extreme nationalists, the Nazi party and elitism which all coincide with German environmentalism?
The Takeaway Message
The belief systems which we suspend on our way to uncritically thinking is amazing. We do this over and over again expecting a different outcome.
The take away here is the same Nazi’s who conducted experimentation on other people and murdered woman and children are the same Nazi’s who championed vegetarianism, preservation of agriculture, and had a gushing idealization of nature.
How do we explain this? That is what we are going to talk about during this podcast series.
