OUR METAMODERN TIMES …’ DECENCY’ IS THE NEW BEHAVIORAL MINIMUM IN OUR METAMODERN CULTURE. DISGUSTING.
Decency is the new behavioral minimum. Disgusting. Yet in our metamodern culture, completely understandable. Metamodernism is fraught with singularity; such as, our screenification society, three screens for each person; the communal living room, yet almost singular in nature because each is not always staring and therefore not sharing the largest screen in the room. Yet the independence of the metamodern era apparently must swing its pendulum all the way to one side before it implodes from solitude to become again communally oriented.
Meanwhile society all over the world is riddled with rogue independents; men and women who are solely out for themselves, evil intent, selfishness, no cause for another’s life nor logic nor human condition. Metmodernism, should boast the independent thought and innovator, rather then decline to the lack of decency.
Decent? Not Perfect. Not Great. Not even, good. Decent.
It’s one of the lowest in ranking as far as how actions can be construed.
Why and when did that lowest form become our lowest form to which hold another accountable. Just to be decent and kind, forbid, would be far too great of a stretch in today’s society; but it shouldn’t be. Decent and kind should be a given, a constant, the line that is never crossed…ever.
“Social media allows the indecent with their indecencies to shine”
So, why in today’s world is there so much indecency? And now with social media it allows the indecent with their indecencies to shine, to play, to have an audience! Without thought of action and reaction of grand repercussions, these indecencies grow and have become the norm.
No more bottom line, our society is now below that line. So far below that line that indecencies are streamed, made public, relished, shared, posted, laughed at and memed. Our metamodern society has a bit to overcome before it will be able to embrace the individual for its goodnesses and progressive community abilities.
What, as an individual, are you doing to help the decency line? To raise it above the line of the lowest and below, to raise expectations of society and how each should and wants and deserves to be treated. Minimally, decently and kindly…for the existence of compassion within a society, decently and kindly.
