This TikTok trend of watching people's real life reaction is something out of Japanese TV. We're really at that level of social parasitism/peer group dependency as a species, aren't we?

Content just can't be delivered objectively. We need to be spoonfed how we should feel, at all times.

Watching other people's reaction is not a guide to how to feel. This woman's not telling you how to feel, just how she feels.

It's voyeurism. It's entertainment. Just like people slow rolling past a car wreck on the highway and everyone's rubbernecking and gawking at the carnage. We're not depending on any of this, we're enjoying watching it. We've come to view real life like it's some sort of sit-com.

The real issue is the people who feel the need to post it to feed the voyeurism. Those are the people who want to be watched, because they think they can influence others. And in that sense, the psychology is no different that crying out in the wilderness, trying to attract the attention of other fellow human primates to whatever interesting thing we managed to stumble upon.

Very little content is objectively delivered. We used to think the news was, but the press has always been biased towards the interests of those who felt compelled enough to publish the paper, write the book, short story, or essay, or film themselves on TV. There's selection bias in what we choose to tell others about at the very least. You really have to get into the Ivory Tower to find really objective discussion, and then, it's often because of a social norm more than anything else.

It absolutely serves that role for a lot of people though. Don't confuse your ideal world with the real one.

I've long been suspicious that the "reaction video" fad was instigated by spooks for the purpose of training the population.

Mate it's hard to know how I should feel about things. Much easier to have somebody show me. Like sign language

Hell yes! I mean, she was already a Trump voter who believed fraud had taken place, but it was still nice to see how angry she got!! What was the deal with that lady standing in front of her though? Didnโ€™t seem necessary.

Ahhh, that reaction when your niggling itch that something doesn't seem right gets bukkaki blasted in your face after watching a single truth/fact filled expose'.

I remember that feeling back in 1990. Took about a decade to cool off enough to not sound like a raving lunatic trying to tell everyone WTF was going on and whats to come.

These days when someone asks me about something they just found out, I just nod with a wistful smirk and utter quietly, "Yup, it's all true. Wait until you find out about how your Birth Certificate is used as tradeable commodity on the stockmarket and is worth millions. ....and how by your parents signing it you become a ward of the state...for life. That'll knock yer socks off."

I then direct them to watch "Sgt Hortons: War Castles" for another bukakke blast.

I have to admit that it is nice to see someone else get as mad as I felt when I first woke up - I would never post it on social media though. I could not imagine how people like you who have been awake for years got through all this time with seemingly nothing habbening.
