I can see the point. I think this is r-type low-IQ low/no Need for Cognition dominance as culture panders to the lowest denominator who is crucially – easily parted with their credit cards. When the credit tap dries up, we’ll see a flip, in my estimation. Salesmen go where the money is. In a monetary vacuum, nobody looks up to these people. Adverts are a dream that consumer buys into. They matter. They have importance. There are things catered to them, after all. Increasingly, they shape their identity around what they are told is valuable about their ‘demo’ by the master puppeteers.
However, the use of degenerate in Europe refers to primarily sexual or rarely, other form of antisocial abuse with traumatic shockwaves to surrounding societal structures (mostly drugs, because the rush and risk is similar to sex).
These people complain when what society said would happen, does. The classic routes worked where none of the others did, it’s almost-Darwinian societal structure selection. See many atheist countries lately? Yet these individuals are ignorant of history and think their trendy opinions will lead them right forever. When they’re inevitably ruined, as society warned them from childhood they would be, they expect everyone else to play parent and clean up their mess. Bailouts. Everywhere. For adults. They complain they are oppressed and nobody listens to them whine. – Probably ‘cos they know they can’t talk you out of being stupid, it’s a lifelong condition. This is the rationale behind that Law of Power on the ‘unlucky’. The same faulty decision-making will fell you too, if such is the cause of their woe.
Take advice from a suicide on life? Sure, what’s the worst that could happen? They’re naive and destructive, a fatal combination in ANY OTHER SOCIETY IN HUMAN HISTORY.
They failed to grow up and each failure thereafter compounds their issues. Leave them be. The issue is assuming everyone is an expert for having an opinion. Nope, most opinion (has a right to exist but) is irrelevant beyond its dwelling place because it fails basic reality checks. They are marked by their ingratitude to people who humour them, and play parent, who tell them the truth. You don’t want to behave, you don’t want the truth, what do you want? ~ it is sensible to ask. To be God. A life with one half cut out. Rights and no responsibilities. Highs and no lows. These people are an insult to children, they may in future count as a form of antisocial retardation; the ignorance of the laws of physics applied to social beings, of the conflict between biology and agency, of chemistry applied to their under-developed brains. They are arrogant enough to believe they are exempt from the rule of the Universe they inhabit. There is no such thing as morality, there is no objective Universe. If you ask, they believe this. They may as well live in a social media cave (Plato) and be done with it. These people would honestly do better in an asylum than out in the harsh realities of a world they dispute to exist. If we lived out in space, we’d shoot these people out of the airlock for sport. They are a waste of resources and it’s a cosmic joke they support all abortion. A temporary boon in global fertility off the back of the tireless noble Victorian productivity (stone-dead two productive generations later, 1901-1961) they derisively mock allowed them an existential hurrah they have wasted for others before the next Malthusian population-levelling event pops up and takes them down into the sinking abyss of genetic irrelevance, the human equivalent of the Dodo. I laugh at these people, for what else is there to do? The village idiots are running the show, may as well enjoy it. We may not see the men in white coats approach them from the corner of our vision but trust, their time is approaching. As George Carlin said, we’re circling the drain, and things pick up speed as we near the end of this era, as we’ve seen in the past year or two. We are the spectators who live in interesting times.
Morality is a slippery slope, which isn’t a fallacy at all when applied to realpolitik, covered with a shiny hard plastic layer of Doublespeak and called a “trend” instead.
