“The Philosophy of Futility”
“Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved”
– Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli
Throughout the whole of human history Fear & Anxiety have been conjured up by the Word Wizards and War Mongers and ruthlessly manipulated as a means of controlling individuals, groups or entire populations for the benefit of those who are ‘in power’ or aspire to be so.
These methods and techniques have been dramatically developed over the years influenced by technical innovations and cultural considerations. The 20th Century became the century of mass communication and deeply pervasive influence, and the methods and techniques kept pace with the requirements of the powers that sought to influence whole cultures and populations and indeed humanity as a whole.
The point and purpose of these changes are generally carried out under the title of “The Philosophy of Futility“
The effort of this philosophy was to turn populations into passive consumers who felt powerless to change the system that controlled their lives. Here is a statement from Paul Nystrom, Professor of.Marketing from Colombia University:
“One’s outlook on life and its purposes may greatly modify one’s attitude toward goods in which fashion is prominent. At the present time, not a few people in western nations have departed from old-time standards of religion and philosophy, and having failed to develop forceful views to take their places, hold to something that may be called, for want of a better name, a philosophy of futility.
This view of life (or lack of a view of life) involves a question as to the value of motives and purposes of the main human activities. There is ever a tendency to challenge the purpose of life itself. This lack of purpose in life has an effect on consumption similar to that of having a narrow life interest, that is, in concentrating human attention on the more superficial things that comprise much of fashionable consumption.”
