Cultural Coercion, does it affect you?
My view on trends concerning coercion
Dear hub readers,
I am writing this little piece as an experiment to see what I can do in the field of writing. I am realizing now that the more friends, visitors and readers a person has, the likely they are to succeed at having a following. I am not the best writer and sometimes struggle just to put something together that is almost worth reading.
I find this topic to be very fascinating, seeing how it effects almost everyone on the planet in some fashion or another! Where do I start?
When a certain group of any society causes another group or perhaps the rest of that society to think, act and dress a certain way and pledge alliance to the same cause, or ethically reprehensible activity. A form of coercion that is an offspring of psychological coercion takes place, which is said to be a type of deception, using whatever means necessary as a cataylst.
Cultural coercion's aim, or should I say motive is to create unwanted change and it's purpose can range from selfish gain, political power,sociological control and affliction to a population of people. Group power, wealth, control and deceptively causing people to change thier thinking in that what they are proposing could make them healthier, or possibly even save their souls and their lives are other features of this manifestation.
Coercion in itself is an often subtle practice of persuading others to believe that what you are presenting to them can be good for them, yet it may not be, depending on how much the reciever of the ideas accepts the concept and how much they are willing to let it affect them.
This practice of coercion is widely used in media, government and many social classes and has been practiced now for many thousands of years. It has many different names and is far reaching in societies even today.
There are many examples of coercion in practice right now and sometimes it runs in conjunction with conspiracies that are taking place. It is better that I do not mention specific entities or groups who participate in such activities, because it could lead to unwanted troubles. But trust this, there are things going on all around us that have the power to persuade us into a different kind of thinking and possibly changing the whole way we think.
I am going to start with this much about the topic and as I study more history on this discipline I will try and add to what I've come up with. If you should happen to stop here and read, please do comment and become a fan. My little fan club needs members and wow, it's free, but it will only cost you a few minutes of thought and contemplation.
Enjoy, and may you have a glorious day!
