Why We Hate
« on: November 14, 2019, 02:48:27 pm »
The Discovery Channel is airing a series entitled Why We Hate.
I binge watched the first five or six episodes via FIOS On Demand this week.
I recommend watching it to lovers of The Coffee House.

Be advised that you may cringe if you identify some of your behaviors in this forum with behaviors highlighted in the series.
Enjoy!

I'm only 54 yrs. old . growing up , we weren't taught that kind of behavior. So when we seen such, we're like who are these people. We were taught respect . if you like it or not.

The entire series is not as violent as the trailer.

Some parts are. Most are not.
There is educational value to watching it, even with some of Spielberg's not so subliminal messaging.

Spoiler alert, they do not spare images of Trump.

The series is about exploring and understanding human and some non-human behaviors.
Invest 10 or 20 minutes in the first 60 minute episode. You will either get hooked or not.
The first episode starts with two species of primates separated by a river and why their group behavior diverges.
I found it fascinating and informative.

I'm not quite following you. There is nothing about primates crossing a bridge.
There are things about human behavioral experiments and such. Internet influence, crimes against humanity etc.

Just try it out. Or don't. I am not getting paid to attract viewers.
I was not trying to offend you or anyone with the suggestion. That was not my intention.
Our country seems to be more divided that I can remember. Hate may not be the right word, but let's use it as a placeholder nevertheless.
Understanding our behavior may be a starting point to deescalating the divisive rhetoric.

And that, my friend, is what the series shares insight to.

The first episode does talk about primates. Chimps and another species, not monkeys.
We share something like 99% of the same DNA with them.

It is not about black / white integration. That is hardly mentioned. Maybe that is too sensitive a topic for us.

There is a part about tutsi and hutu conflict.
Yugoslavia conflict.

I would like to but I don't get that channel.  Hate is an emotion tied to fear.

To some extent this is true.

Perhaps there should be a distinction between what we feel and how we act?  We might actually hate something, but the behaviors I see recently are more about people not being taught to be civil, debate, and accept that others have and have the right to, different opinions. We might find those opinions abhorrent, but we do not have the right to bash/silence people because of those opinions.

Is there such a thing?   :wink:
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Hate is WAY too much work.  Only young people seem to have the energy for it.  I think sometimes they just want to FEEL something so they latch onto an emotion and they feed it and keep it around.

Having my granddaughter stay with us has been enlightening. I asked her a number of questions the other day.  Why does your generation seem happy to live at home so long?   why are you guys so wrapped up in this gender stuff.  3.  What is this new boomer bashing thing that's going on....It was a wide-ranging conversation.   :grin:

Her overall answer was that they had nothing to occupy their minds so they invented things to be stressed about.  They do not want for anything.  No one is kicking them out the door to survive on their own.  They are not involved in a war.  In short, they are inventing things to scream about because they have nothing real stressing them.

I don't think your grand daughter is a dunce.  IF she said these things she is playing you and as expected you eat it right up.
The only reason kids are living at home is because of the parents guilt.  They know they handed their generation less opportunity then they had themselves and included massive debt.  The truth of the matter is your grand daughter has far greater stress then you could ever imagine.
