Back in November 16, 2017 I wrote an article titled The Pendulum Has Swung: The “Cool” Liberal Crowd Are The New Puritans by David Burt where I mentioned that the current so-called "cool" culture or youth culture have now become authoritarian, just like how the religious puritans were a generation ago. These particular categories of society; 1. Media, 2. Hollywood, 3. Music, 4. The Arts, 5. Higher Education, are now under the umbrella of the authoritarian Left. In other words, what you think is the counter-culture is part of the establishment. This is why most Hollywood celebrities try to get people to vote Left.
Now, even the so-called Pro-Black Conscious community is now under the radical Left umbrella. I predict soon that in the near future, most Pro-Blacks will be pro-gay, pro-abortion, pro-trans, pro-feminism, etc., because of the George Soros funded Black Lives Matter has overshadowed and eclipsed traditional Pro-Black groups like RBGs, New Black Panthers, Moors, Black Hebrew Israelites, Nuwaubian Nation, etc.
Youth culture is currently a culture of conformists, because they have an allegiance of misery.
Question: What is an NPC (Non-Player Character)?
Have you ever played video games in which there are random characters in the background that are programmed to move or wonder around automatically as the background of a video game? These are called Non-Player Characters or NPCs. A Non-Player Character (NPC) is a video game character that is controlled by the game's artificial intelligence (AI) rather than by a gamer
The term IRL NPCs (In Real Life Non-Player Characters) is referring to people who have no inner voice, inner visualization, unsymbolized thinking, feelings, or sensory awareness. These people can't think for themselves. They have no imagination and are unable to mentally visualize.
These are people who are still in the "Matrix" . They are the conformists. They've swallowed the blue pill. They follow the crowd, follow all the fads and trends, and are totally inline with the social status-quo. This just doesn't apply to very religious people, but it also currently applies to people who consider themselves social activists or cultural as well. The so-called underground counter-culture as been co-opted and corrupted as well.
The concept of NPCs goes back to a report from a psychology journal written by C. L. Heavey and R. T. Hurlburt titled "The Phenomena of Inner Experience. Consciousness and Cognition (2008)". LINK: http://hurlburt.faculty.unlv.edu/heavey-hurlburt-2008.pdf

Dr. Russell T. Hurlburt, Ph.D., who is a professor of psychology at the University of Nevada, wrote in an article in Psychology Today, Oct 26, 2011, said;
"Considering inner speech. Subject experienced themselves as innerly talking to themselves in 26% of all samples, but there were large individual differences: some subjects never experienced inner speech."

In her video, Proof of Real-Life Non-Player Characters, Aydin Paladin said,
"This report is used as evidence of NPC people in the real world. People who live and exist among us, going out and about their daily lives without a single thought in their heads."
"In the most basic description of the data, the researchers found that of their sample of 30 college students participants, both male and female, 5 of them expressed no experience of inner speech, inner monologue, that little voice in your head, that thing that narrates what you're doing. That means 17 percent of the sample, which represents 17 percent of the total population, have no internal voice in their heads. Just under the 5th of the population has no inner monologue. This is why people believe outright lies from the mainstream media. This is why so many people are so clueless. They are drones who are easily manipulated. They have no independent thought. They are empty vessels. They're NPCs. Just robots ready for reprogramming."
An NPC is a person who repeats the same humdrum talking points and have no original thought or opinion of their own. The reason why they regurgitate the same standard and dogmatic answers, rhetoric, or talking points is to make themselves feel good and noble, as if they're doing a good deed or fit in with the status-quo. This is why the media creates hashtags such as #MeToo or #BelieveAllWomen to reinforce the victimhood culture.
Many of the people who fight for social justice are sincere, but are easily manipulated. There's nothing wrong with fighting for what is right, but the key element they leave out is the concept of personal responsibility. An individual who controls his or her actions can solve most of societies problems
Question: WHAT IS THE ASCH CONFORMITY EXPERIMENT?
The Asch Conformity Experiment were a series of psychological studies conducted by a man named Dr. Solomon Asch (1907 - 1996) back in 1951. In the experiement, a participant was shown two cards. One card had one vertical line and the second card had 3 vertical lines of different lengths, labelled A, B, and C. One of these lines was the exact same length as the line on the first card. The participant simply had to choose which lines matched each other.
If the participant was in a room by himself, he would get it right 99% of the time
But in other times, Dr. Asch would put "actors" or "confederates" in the room with the participant who were in on the experiment. The actors all together would choose the wrong line on purpose to see if the naive participant would follow along with the crowd. With the actors in the room, participants gave at least one incorrect answer 75% of the time.
To put it simply as I can, 75% of the time, the participant went along with the crowd, or the "actors" who picked the wrong line on purpose.
Real "woke-ness" is not about being a follower, it's about being a trailblazer. The very word "conscious" implies "thinking", so it should be about thinking your own thoughts outside of the collective. In order to do that, you have to risk not being comfortable and destroy your own personal foundation or worldview and replace it with fire 🔥, stone, and steel. Being confident is a treasure of gold nobody can take from you.
"A passionate commitment to social justice is no substitute for knowing what you're talking about." ~ Thomas Sowell
