mainstream culture has already beat you to it. the entire realm of political discourse has been appropriated for petty cultural grumbles. pomo irony has found peaceful coexistence with an even more cynical hypersincerity.
>>7564262 Cynicism is the answer of the ruling culture to this kynikal (vulgar) subversion: it recognizes, it takes into account, the particular interest behind the ideological universality, the distance between the ideological mask and the reality, but it still finds reasons to retain the mask. This cynicism is not a direct position of immorality, it is more like morality itself put in the service of immorality – the model of cynical wisdom is to conceive probity, integrity, as a supreme form of dishonesty, and morals as a supreme form of profligacy, the truth as the most effective form of a lie. This cynicism is therefore a kind of perverted 'negation of the negation' of the official ideology: confronted with illegal enrichment, with robbery, the cynical reaction consists in saying that legal enerichment is a lot more effective and, moreover, protected by the law. Thus we can no longer subject the text ti 'symptomatic reading' to reveal its blank spots, with what is must repress to organize itself, to preserve its consistency – cynical reason takes this distance into account in advance.
Please see such works as, "The Prophet Isaiah", "The Lamentations of Jeremiah", "The Prophet Ezekiel", "The Prophet Jonah".
> But the wicked shall be punished according to their own devices: who have neglected the just, and have revolted from the Lord.
> For he that rejecteth wisdom, and discipline, is unhappy: and their hope is vain, and their labours without fruit, and their works unprofitable.  Their wives are foolish, and their children wicked.  Their offspring is cursed: for happy is the barren: and the undefiled, that hath not known bed in sin: she shall have fruit in the visitation of holy souls.  And the eunuch, that hath not wrought iniquity with his hands, nor thought wicked things against God: for the precious gift of faith shall be given to him, and a most acceptable lot in the temple of God.  For the fruit of good labours is glorious, and the root of wisdom never faileth.
> But the children of adulterers shall not come to perfection, and the seed of the unlawful bed shall be rooted out.  And if they live long, they shall be nothing regarded, and their last old age shall be without honour.  And if they die quickly, they shall have no hope, nor speech of comfort in the day of trial.  For dreadful are the ends of a wicked race.
okay, so you are referring to the dictionary's definition - not for the word you are arguing for - but it's inverse? instead of using its own definition? like i am mindfuck as to what you were trying to accomplish by doing this. especially as to your conclusion by what you have discerned immorality to be. even at that though your definition does not hold true. immorality does not equal a neutral sense of morality for the individual
>>7564262 a cynical attitude towards modern immorality isn't so much a 'solution' as it is an act of complicity, ironically renouncing its failings whilst continuing to participate in the social contract which governs moral law - having your proverbial cake and eating it too, while also pulling a disgusted face as if the cake was filled with kitty litter, dicks and shame.
>>7564262 Kind of... until all the chumps wise up and society collapses.
It seems to me that few people realize that our "free republics" were founded by Protestant merchants who were renowned for their forthright honesty and fair dealing and so who became wealthy from return customers.
It's a lot like getting away with peeing in the swimming pool. It feels nice and is all fun and games until everyone catches on and you're all swimming in piss.
