Irrational Socialization

What is socialization? 

Social conditioning is the inevitable process through which individuals inherit the grand beliefs and behaviors of their society. The way people learn and believe what others believe and act accordingly without questioning. Its purpose is to preserve and develop society as a whole.

Being aware of these non-conscious beliefs and how they affect behavior is vital because without awareness you will not understand why you think or act the way you do. 
Socialization is good in general, primarily for society, but not necessarily for the individual.

Whenever individuals attempt to break or violate social or cultural values, a learned emotion and response, called “shame” get activated. Shame is a painful personal emotion, that is not natural, and is used to repress all kinds of undesirable behavior and preserve social cohesion in the community by rejecting members until they conform to the grand beliefs.

Everything we do is subjected to our beliefs. The underlying beliefs determine our behavior – and to other people, you are your behavior. You can and ought to create a new mindset, that is, a new collection of accurate and productive beliefs about how the world works.
Beliefs govern behavior, a change in beliefs causes a change in behavior.


We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
