What is up with the WRONG Celebrity Culture?

I do think that most of the people on earth do not know how to spend their time!

I do not claim that I do that myself but I definitely do not think that only Idol/Individual Worship helps anyone from personal experience! When I say Idol worship, it includes a known human face worship as well!

It’s good to have ideals – personal as well as public related, but to put a face to it or give a human that personification of those age old + modern evolved idols should be TREATED CRIMINAL. I repeat, HeroWorship in any form and shape should be a CRIMINAL OFFENCE.

What happens is that in doing so, one is empowering a person (made of bones, skin with emotions, thoughts, needs, desires like us all) to be the KING/QUEEN or GOD – You are by default telling him/her/it to rule them, control them & you have to follow them unquestioned coz you chose them unquestioned.

Let me also specify that in world terms – my problem lies with Global Leaders chosen by default system/process and in National terms with Male Cricketers, Movie Stars (not even good actors just celebrities), family owned industrialists, politicians, beaurecrats & their kids.

They treat public, democracy, media, judiciary, legislative bodies, Law & order as pawns to their wills & fancies. Perhaps it is a very age old problem running but with today’s times of more confident youth who are selfish (lets admit it) and don’t give a damn about anyone/anything plus more scrutiny thanks to social media & outspoken-ness of public – I do wish this UNWARRANTED POWER OF SO CALLED POWERFUL PEOPLE to go away!

I want more and more people & new systems to stand up to such powerful individuals who bring their individual interests first & public welfare/ social welfare last!

shallowness

So what’s the solution :

  • More vigilant, flexible & faster system biased towards social welfare, public opinions backed by data & figures of qualified sources to take centre – stage (yes yes, its always subjective but there are models still). To have other institutions follow these system & not rally around eyeballs.
  • Educated & qualified public (who understand that this celebrity culture is doomed to put society to fail) to Speak Up & Take Ownership. It has always happened in history in all forms & there is no reason why people who attract others based on their flesh & faces should be respected & not on simple basic skills. Parents & Schools shall play the most important role.
  • Media Content control mechanism – there is so much need for Media to be told that public are no fools & they can see through their intentions of putting up a story so better make those intentions clean & RIGHT! This should be done at all levels & channels – we need more powerful regulated bodies linked to Public systems (indirectly to Democratic powers)

Honestly, am not so sure if I will see the above moving in my lifetime but will be good to see some sort of beginning made towards it.

Social Welfare on my Mind

Yeah, social welfare is always on my mind without doubt!

This is the space I wanted to be in since a kid & this is the space I aspire to be in post making some money, network, resources, skills for myself.

It motivates me, it guides me & most importantly find the true me when am lost! It also helps me connect with some amazing people & also learn to be a better person on regular basis without boasting.

It brings a sense of duty, a sense of balance to the whole Capitalism drive inside us – it makes me see things in a quiet, deep & well meant light. It doesn’t let me give up when am down & out – it makes me prevail the goodness & badness with same virtues : fortitude, temperance, prudence & justice.

Moreover, technically it helps me build some interesting models based on key human behavorial insights. It helps in keeping people like me who are city dwellers (mostly out of choice for lifestyle, jobs) understand the deep & true rural/small City simplicity connect!

How I want to incessantly work for the same & build something that outlives me forever.

Somewhere my ideal model is – within the walls of liberal capitalism, the values of socialism & simplicity to flourish.

Goodness in History!

History always fascinates me! (Such a Young Sheldon inspired line ;))

Because of the stories, because of the varied characters, their intentions, motives, emotions – it is always interesting for me to hear & read, discuss about Roman/ Greek Culture + Renaissance + Industrial Revolution & Indian, Mongol history along with cultural, social changes.

Its most fascinating for me to imagine how the times & the people were in those times & how it has resulted in creating new world order. In my experience, as much one learns about the history & culture better – they are able to do better with current space as the understanding for present increases & what all is feasible for future becomes better.

One may argue that it limits your understanding about possibilities but for me it only works as an inspiration for the imaginations in my head.
I feel, since the life was much simpler before even if it was less safer and hence people had more time & less distractions towards focussing energy what they wanted to do. Hence one sees the efforts people put in inventions, discoveries, writings – the quality of thoughts, the depth of meaning shows.

So it’s not correct to discard the history & learnings altogether.

Even in my space of technology & business – I do see there are enough examples of great technical inventions, business models, good companies, leaders to provide learnings for current & future generations.

Perhaps this is what education/ qualification/ degrees provide – enough examples, inspiration, insights for the subject one is interested in. The motivation/ inspiration/ new ideas/ in depth findings, etc. are supposed to be brought by oneself towards their own causes. Also the dedication to keep on going to create your own path is to be brought by one’s own life story.

An example worth noting is how America has been able to bring up some strong models in almost every field of Technology, politics, economics, social welfare, cultural celebration, policy making, justice, media setups, etc. That’s because of the true advancement it made during the 40s, 50s in setting the foundations strong for a society which is fed on innovation, independence & human excellence. That way one has to appreciate American forefathers.
