Cultural cock swinging

People have a tendency to ruin everything. Self serving hierarchy, status and personal recognition seep in to almost every aspect of life. Modern culture offers many examples.

Whether it’s the trendy medicine scene, club culture, travel blogging, festival attending, motorcycle riding, crystal collecting, climate activism, the vegan movement, fitness training, – the list goes on. Forever. Because of the compulsive nature of money making we bastardise value in the search for meaning.

There’s a one-upmanship that never stops. Folks just can’t seem to help themselves: “I’m more insert hobby/interest/career than you.”

I myself, being a Northerner, find a healthy sense of humour helps to mitigate the effects of such nonsense. Charlie Ma shared with me this video. I found it quite appropriate.
