    Default Western civization from a critical point of view

    The reason why I can't adore the technical progress and constant changing in development and mass production making is because it's not what makes us fulfill in life.

    Materialism seems to make people greedy, narcissist and self oriented to a point where everyone is an opponent.
    Everyting is measured by financial values and life has lost it's flesh.
    People are moving onto cities and the getting alienated from nature and it's organism.

    I feel that we humans are in an identical crisis, because we place ourselves above everything and force everyone to follow the same path "getting to school, socialise and after leaving college get a human mass production made for this system which capitalise humanity and use for it's self oriented goal to make more profit.

    We're unavare of the fact that most people only work for the ones at the top and barely get shit for all the energy he invested to reach his dreams and fulfillment in life, instead make those well who barely do anyting but use humans as a mass production to give means for their matrix.

    We live completely alielenated from ourselves. We don't know who we really are. We let a few "experts" to decide what we should do instead make ourselves capable of examine the world we live in.
    Everything we need is already here and happiness and the chemical balance we have to make us comfortable is within our mind. Changing one's mindset change his whole life. Getting high by different substances can give a little idea of how large this universe is and how we don't know nothing, but by constant self analysis and learning to achieve a deeper insight can make us open to truth and the blindness fade away to reach higher states of consciousness.

    What you describe isn't the essence of ''Western Civilization'', but of Americanism. Do not let Americans hijack the West.

    Original Western civilisation was vased on hermeticism, Babylon and Eastern domaticism along some Celtic teachings Inc. Paganism.

    Modern Western civilisation is a production of Materialism, darwinism and the victim of egoism which manifest itself in self importance and every feeling associated with this "I am better than others" mentality.

    Modern Western Civilization = Enlightenment, liberalism, productivism, scientific materialism, social alienation, feminism, ''rights of man'', representative democracy etc..

    One could argue that pre-enlightenment Europe and modern West aren't part of the same ''civilization''.

    While I agree we are too divorced from nature nowadays - that was one of Spengler's main arguments in Man and Technology around a century ago - as Avishai Margalit and Ian Buruma point out in their book Occidentalism, the whole point about liberal capitalism is that it does NOT claim to be glorifying, heroic and fulfilling of people's spiritual and inner needs, and just lets them build prosperous lives and get on with it.

    ^ Western society has long since considered ones spiritual needs to be a wholly private affair. The experiences of the Wars of Religion and the Inquisition may have something to do with that...

    Happiness isn't defined by the goods one have but the mind that we have. One can be rich but poor because anyting he has just creates more greed to have more that's why the so called 1% can't stop and always on to have more control&power.

    What they forget is the limited nature of human life. What you can build up by hard work can fade away by a single car accident or fatal death.

    If we can learn to control of our mind then we have more freedom and power because greed makes us addicted and constantly dependent by the outer values instead of an inner fulfilment which can be achieved by studying the world and examining one's mind by certain practices.

    Original Western Civilisation? What are you reffering to? What nations and when it was the period that you're talking about?
