PERSONALITY TAKES TIME
Is the personality of the young nation of the USA still under progress?
A stereotype of juveniles suggests a characteristic of anti-social behavior that displays as being cool. This is a part of growing up. Marketers have glorified this period of human life into popularity even for people with sufficient years to have developed actual personalities. The reason seems to be selling opportunity. The result may be that some people may accord their life consistent with suggestion from marketers rather than according to quality of life, reality, or best practice. This is harmful to said people, in the long run, while being obnoxious.
An example drawn from recent news is a propensity to build a home if not a community, on the edge of a body of water in a hurricane alley, for example…..
To consider quality of life over quantity of goods may be a path to economic well being. Few would argue that economic well being itself enhances quality of life.https://www.treehugger.com/retired-couple-builds-zero-waste-tiny-home-6744078?hid=4246be665c7c525806e26d15079d974213d256e7&did=850479-20221004&utm_campaign=treehugger-daily_newsletter&utm_source=treehugger&utm_medium=email&utm_content=100422&cid=850479&mid=98644160441 —
With people becoming more aware of how their lifestyles can impact their environment, we’ve seen a slow but sure shift of people adopting the idea of living a fuller life, with less stuff. That might mean reining in impulsive consumerist habits, flying less, eating and buying local, or living in a smaller home. The notion of a simpler lifestyle is catching on and not only with the younger generation: It is also making sense with a growing number of boomer retirees who want to leave a healthier planet behind for their children and grandchildren.

Marketing seems to be a reason for lifestyle choices that are unlivable or dangerous. Pyramid-Scheme economy inculcation elevates characteristics such as competition and aggression over concern for fairness and restraint. In the end this is seldom healthy for the perpetrator. If it sounds like one encourages ability to imagine a better vision, it’s because that is the intention. Consider simple intelligence in building a community, as discussed in the link following.
But there’s another story out of Florida — a good news story — that’s not getting anything close to the coverage it deserves.
Just 12 miles northeast of Fort Meyers — a community devastated by the hurricane with total loss of power, water, and massive loss of life — another community not only came through the hurricane just fine but never even lost power.
It wasn’t to save the world that they built an all-electric, all-solar community: it was to avoid exactly what happened to the surrounding area; electric and water outages and the collapse of infrastructure that typically accompanies a hurricane.–end of portside info–
One is interested in the highlighted portion of the above portside info that seems to imply a type of nobility that the community wasn’t so constructed to “save the world”. So what’s wrong with saving the world, and how weird is a culture that feels compelled to take on said aura of environmental chauvinism that rejects “saving he world”?
Again, feels like hubris and juvenile grasping for something to fill the void.

Without mentioning a meritocracy, Russell Brand seems to speak to this special type of oligarchy functioning in the USA.

One may research The Meritorious Manumissions Act of 1710, if one wishes. This may be uniquely American as written into law.
