Anger, Distrust & Cynicism

Anger Distrust Cynicism

A collective attitude of Anger, Distrust and Cynicism has gone mass and is expanding over more and more areas in our lives. Our trust in politicians has reached an all-time low and many turn away in disgust. Next waves of distrust will hit on the Google’s of our life world – showing happy Do No Evil faces, while stealing away our privacy. Many of us don’t bother to care… until disaster strikes.

The financial crisis has proven to be a cultural crisis as well. Worldwide we have entered a Culture of Distrust. Since 2007 the financial industries – banks in particular – have painstakingly paved the ways towards this state of mind. With their utterly cynical marketing to the NINJA – No Income, No Jobs or Assets – target groups, they provide clients with mortgages that wreck lives in the long run, while they enjoy the benefits of bonus culture. With the riches’ unprecedented juridical powers that almost always saved their asses, many of us were too greedy to care…That is, until disaster stroke.

Anger, Distrust & Cynicism

The middle classes – in Brazil, China, India, Russia and the Arabian hemisphere – are angry and distrustful – and organize themselves with the help of Social Media. The underclass are also angry and untrusting and often not healthily integrated into society. This affects the social fabric of societies disastrously and is an explosive dynamite.
