Hello my great brothers and sisters again, sorry if I bother you too much with my complains and critisism of this world.  But the thing is that I have been an active Facebook member for some years, and trying to find intellectual, serious philosophy debate about the problems of this world, and to find a solution for them.  So that humans can have at least in the future a great world to live in with beauty wealth progress, and physical health and physical power in all humans, but even in Facebook most people seem to me too dumb, too weak, too negative, too introverted (They are not able to communicate their needs, goals and interests) in a clear cut way.

So that's why I am trying to find other ways in the internet, other than Facebook to have science, and political discussions with people (Because Facebook is a total waste of time for intellectuals and writers, it is full of narcissists and people seeking fame and glory)

What a great internet Nietzschean friend said here in this link: http://theantinietzsche.wordpress.com/2014/01/17/to-give-a-shit-or-to-not-give-a-shit/ of his Nietzsche's blog is 100% TOTALLY TRUE about the goal-oriented behaviour of humans and how what we do (wether is a diet or any other thing is really after a goal): 

"When you spend years of your early life going to school, (hopefully) advancing further and further up in grade levels with each passing year, you operate with a sense of purpose in your daily activity.  You’re doing what you’re doing with the knowledge that there is a clear, attainable goal at the end of each phase.  When you enter the workforce a similar mentality is in play.  You work as if you are striving forward for something; moving ahead to the next level, so to speak.  However, eventually you reach a point where every step forward in the road appears the same as every other; the scenery remains unchanged no matter how far or how fast you advance past whatever position you’re currently in.  Worse yet, every position you find yourself in is identical to every other you advance to.  And you start to pine for the bygone days when your daily routine was filled with an objective in mind, something more enticing than simply trying to earn enough in  overtime to make that last bill payment at the end of the month.  The idea of working for several more decades in order to be able to pay off one’s bills and debts doesn’t seem like much of a life.  Yet, that is the productive life praised as virtuous"

He is totally 100% right about how most americans, the oppressed majority of US citizens, the slaves producing wealth (80% of USA creating wealth for 20% of USA).  Doesn't seem like very Nietzschean, aristocratic and revolutionary.  Nietzsche's books are at odds with the American Slavery way of life just like George Carlin said in his youtube video at the top of this article that there is no USA dream,. what we have in USA is a hell:

Watch the youtube video at the top of this article and read the script here of what George Carlin said in that "American Dream" comedy show on how life in USA is a heaven for about 20% of the population of USA and and an american hell for the 80% of the population of the country:

It's never going to get any better, don't look for it, be happy with what you've got...BECAUSE THE OWNERS OF THIS COUNTRY DON'T WANT THAT. I'm talking about the real owners now...the REAAL owners. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions."..

"Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice . . . you dont. You have no choice. You have OWNERS. They OWN *you*. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. Theyve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying . . . lobbying, to get what they want . . .

Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but Ill tell you what they dont want . . . they dont want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They dont want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. Theyre not interested in that . . . that doesnt help them. Thats against their interests. Thats right. They dont want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly theyre getting ***** by a system that threw them overboard 30 *****' years ago. They dont want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers . . .

Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly ***** jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now theyre coming for your Social Security money. They want your *****' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? Theyll get it . . . theyll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this *****' place.

Its a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in The big club. By the way, its the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesnt matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich ***** who dont give a ***** about you.

They dont give a ***** about you . . . they dont give a ***** about you. They dont care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Thats what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick thats being jammed up their ***** everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. Its called the American Dream, 'cause you have to be asleep to believe it ."

And I think that the lack of economic motivation that the 80% of the US population has, which is about the americans oppressed by the very oligarchic stage of capitalism (which began around late 1990s) also leads to passive-nihilism (the opposite of revolutionary nihilism) in the majority of US citizens.

Most people in USA getting fat, ugly, depressed, not caring about their physical image (except celebrities and famous americans), but the rest of Americans, the americans who do are not required to look great are "Letting themselves go", the whole USA is turning into a country of deformed ugly people (this produces negative energies).  (READ PART 47 OF TWILIGHT OF THE IDOLS, NIETZSCHE WROTE ABOUT THE GREAT REQUIREMENT OF PHYSICAL BEAUTY FOR A SOCIETY TO MOVE FORWARD THERE)

So because most americans are depressed and passive-nihilists, this is very bad for those people like you and me, who have a self-help, self-realization worldview (because of the philosophy of Nietzsche of will to progress, will to be better humans, will to greatness), because of that we are vulnerable to adopt the depressive suicidal virus spread in the whole USA, which even has claimed the life of even rich celebrities (Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Layne Stayle etc)

Read this article about how Nietzscheans and positive americans can be infected with the suicidal depression of most americans.  It's a theory called "EMOTIONAL CONTAGION" which means that people adopt the behaviour patterns, the facial expressions and emotions of the society in which they live.  So if you live in a happy society (you will turn into a happy positive person), but if you live in a depressive society like USA you will turn into a depressive person)

That's why Nietzsche claimed that if a person wants to be great, he must have an anti-social attitude, and stay away as far as you can from the herd majority, the depressive sad nihilist populace, and only hang around with motivated people (I think Nietzsche had in mind the "Emotional Contagion" sociology theory there


Definition of Emotional Contagion

Emotional contagion is the tendency for two individuals to emotionally converge. One view developed by Elaine Hatfield et al. is that this can be done through automatic mimicry and synchronization of one’s expressions, vocalizations, postures and movements with those of another person.  When people unconsciously mimic their companions’ expressions of emotion, they come to feel reflections of their partner’s emotions.  Emotions can be shared across individuals in many different ways both implicitly or explicitly. For instance, conscious reasoning, analysis and imagination have all been found to contribute to the phenomenon.

Emotional contagion is important to personal relationships because it fosters emotional synchrony between individuals. A broader definition of the phenomenon was suggested by Schoenewolf: "a process in which a person or group influences the emotions or behavior of another person or group through the conscious or unconscious induction of emotion states and behavioral attitudes".

Etymology of Emotional Contagion

The phrase “emotional contagion” embodies the idea that humans will synchronize their personal emotions with the emotions expressed by those around them, whether consciously or unconsciously, and thus that an emotion conveyed by one person will become “contagious” to others.

Psychologist Elaine Hatfield theorizes emotional contagion as a two-step process: Step 1: We imitate people; if someone smiles at you, you smile back. Step 2: Changes in mood through faking it. If you smile you feel happy, if you frown you feel bad.  Mimicry seems to be one foundation of emotional movement between people.

Emotional contagion and empathy have an interesting relationship, in that they share similar characteristics, with the exception of the ability to differentiate between personal and pre-personal experiences, a process known as individuation.  In The Art of Loving, social psychologist Erich Fromm explores these differences, suggesting that autonomy is necessary for empathy, which is not found in emotional contagion.

Factors Influencing Emotional Contagion

There are several factors that determine the rate and extent of emotional convergence in a group. Some of these are: membership stability, mood-regulation norms, task interdependence and social interdependence.  Besides these event-structure properties, there are personal properties of the group's members, such as openness to receive and transmit feelings, demographic characteristics and dispositional affect that influence the intensity of emotional contagion.
