Trouble committing

Trouble committing

I understand why modern people have a lot of trouble committing. To commit to anything is to put yourself at risk, and to predicate your success on its success. It is always safer to do nothing.

This originates like all of our failings in the family (this includes but is not limited to the related issue of breeding). Families force their children into positions of submission, so that the adults feel in control. The result is that children associate committing to anything with being in a position of submission.

Cognitive dissonance. We're constantly told how there are no substantive differences between us all. Any differences between us are superficial and if these distinctions aren't self expression, which is acceptable, then they are just flawed prejudices in our perceptions of others. Life does not function this way however. So when a child and parent have a relationship, the fact that the roles must differ in order to operate correctly comes into conflict with the egalitarian lore that all the 'good persons' accept.
