This morning I woke up and if you have a breath of life, you see what I see -- the world has a few problems. It’s so easy to get distracted by all the different challenges we face. I wish I could say I feel sorry for humanity but I don’t. When you dig deep into the available information, you start to see a reoccurring theme.
I started with scratching the surface of the “belief system” in my previous blog; this should lead you in all kinds of directions of research. I laid out a specific path in my notes for this next blog, but even this morning I wanted to change a few of the topics, especially with all the death that is occurring. Most of us react by saying, “How can I save the world” More on this later.
Did you know in 1936 Anna Freud theorized and classified a number of defense mechanisms which appear in the works of Sigmund? Today, there are upwards of 30+ theories and classifications for defense mechanisms. Below are six of theories that are still used today that I found very interesting:
Once you dig into just a few of the defense mechanisms, you find that most of what you are seeing comes from your unconscious. The unconscious contains all sorts of significant and disturbing information that we try to keep out of awareness. Psychologists have theorized that the unconscious acts as a repository for all the primitive wishes and impulses. It really starts to make sense why our reasoning has not evolved collectively. All defense mechanisms are responses to anxiety and how the unconscious and consciousness handle the stresses of a social situation(s). Pick any life situation and try to find the theorized classification. You will start to see how bat shit crazy we all are collectively.
So, pick one the many problems that have been around for decades and start saving the world. You will always find opposition to an agreeable fact because of a belief system supported by a defense mechanism.
