I wanted to expan on my post more but i have a busy life (TFW i need to work for 782 minutes today and i only have 450 logged rn when it's 10 pm, anyway) i said morals and meant it, i agree with the anon who mentioned multiculturalism in this sense.
Seeing people you have less in common with genetically, fill your daily life more and more, makes you less likely to hold onto feelings of patriotism, nationalism and pride in your identity. I am against immigration (but not so heartless as to ban war refugees from seeking shelter in my country, i actively work to aid them in my daily life. I am an autist unironically, but i don't like giving them 20 cents (i am translating my currency to AMERICAN rn for your comfort) it feels forced, i usually aid them with resources, or buy $2 worth of products for $20- no they don't price what they sell, they're happy to get anything. Wars are atrocious, anyway)
I meant morals, also as in religion and caring for your family and neighbor. I am not a religious fanatic, but i agree with Jews, christians and Muslims well enough to considers us brothers and sisters on this earth and to support each other, to each their own.
And what i didn't mention in my OP was that i feel like normies don't just lack morals, but also- personality.
And therein comes the "classic British literature" part. I know not everyone spoke in 20-lines paragraphs or was as eloquent as Charlotte Bronte. It just feels like people retained more personality back then. Their most bland, submissive housewives, and most ordinary breadwinner husbands, their more trivial affairs had a lot to do with them personally that each of them felt like they were overflowing with life force and energy.
There is so much cynicism and coldness nowadays. In a sense i think it has to do with the massive deal of information we deal with on the daily.
I remember a certain quote by Stalin in this regard, and i hate Stalin and everything to do with communism and Marxism i should mention, but i believe him right when he said, "The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic."
We live our daily lives with the knowledge that a lot of world problems exist beyond our might and wit, we get to witness a greater deal of injustice, hatred and atrocities with detached minds and bodies than any of our ancestors ever had to. Not even during WW2.
Don't you think the ability to just, close a tab and walk away, when the topic of starving children and genocides and massive unjust persecutions taking place in the world oceans away, is hypnotizing enough to condition the mind to believe that problems cannot exis beyond our screens?
I have many times in my life felt enough rage at issues outside my control that all i could do was bawl in my room and cry about the fact pedophiles exist, animal abusers exist, staving people exist, that enough problems and entire families can be saved out of poverty for the same amount of money we put into one Family Guy episode.
I've tried memes as a coping mechanism, and lived half my teenage vulnerable years in image forums like 4chan and occasionally 8kun, and learned to silence that side of me that yearned for justice and righteousness.
Then found out it makes me no different that the twittard Redditor comparing US cops to StarWars stormtroopers in your "hello kitty says acab^^" echo chambers.
My pic in the OP seems to confine normies to leftists and libtards, but i think NPCs come in many shapes, regardless of political alignement.
