If you cannot express your ideas in a clear and concise manner, how do you expect your reader to properly grasp, digest and comment upon your content?

What is your view on the cause of emotion(s)?

True. I am actually best described as an activist. So what?
Apart from not having authoritative proof, that doesn't mean my stuff is not worth to be considered or even wrong.


So you’re a self described activist on the subject of “emotional climate change” and other such things. Terrific. To each their own. I agree that there is no need for your opinions on a topic be demonstrated as correct or be supported by authoritative proof in order to be worthy of consideration. This holds true whether you are sharing your opinion about “climatic emotional disentanglement” or how high dragons can fly in the ethereal planes of Zanos.

Ultimately, whatever concept or issue you are activating for, success will hinge on getting others to agree and support the opinions you offer. Otherwise, you will remain a general without an army, a blogger without an audience.

From the feedback in here, hopefully at least some of it will help make your website/personal blog more successful. Let us know how it goes.

Climate change: a global phenomenon headed in one direction
Emotion: an individual, personal matter subject to frequent change of direction

Maybe you need a more appropriate name, for starters?

I didn't ask for hints. I asked a direct question. I would like a direct answer. Based on the hints to which you refer, I do not believe that you know from where or from what source an emotion originates.

But harming others sadly is actually the most impactful LSE behaviour! Humiliating, discrediting or dominating others are LSE driven attempts to compensate deficits. Without being able to really look inside such minds, it figures that such person's own value is perceived as increased in relation to the low/lowered value of their counterparts/victims.

Interesting paragraph, I say. And I say this in the context of hurting animals. When I read it this way . . .

. . . I find this to be a relevant idea in the movement towards veganism. The daily ingestion of the victims (and their by-products) is a factor in the agitation that people feel; what one puts into their bodies has effects upon the mind.

Might you want to place your activist thinking behind the values of veganism (with the twist of personal emotional impacts)? Especially when one knows that the environment we all share is directly impacted more by animal agriculture than from any other cause of environmental destruction, one can see how important this issue is to every person living and their progeny.

Animals, just like the entire life on earth including suffers from human actions.
Bringing more empathy and rationality to people's minds is my task.
All the rest follows consequently...

The academics and the writers of popular self-help books have it covered, and there are loads of websites, forums and personal opinions online already.
.


Have what covered exactly?
The only clearly rational website I know is lesswrong.
But they are rather theoretical and have no ambition to spread the word.
Effective altruism have the right fundament, but focus on "doing good better".
Humanetech want the right thing, but deal mostly with the tech aspects.
Dan Ariely is great and did more than I would ever dream to achieve, but he is not yet (in) a movement.
I am on the same page with Spencer Greenberg (who actually helped me a lot), but like many others,
he seems to rather work on business/personal optimization.
Simon Sinek is great, but I am not sure about his rationality background.

I am puzzling together all relevant aspects and eventually aim to a broader audience.

Again, point me to anything relevant so I can connect, learn, participate.
I am here for input and networking.

Thanks.
