From the black book, 13.3 e) through to 13.7. Conclusions written after my original writing are written in red text.
13.3 b) Label – a descriptive term or phrase used to classify a certain type of subculture within society.
c) My definition: a method of segmenting human personality types and preferences into easily identifiable categories. Even being ‘not labeled’ defines you into one of those groups, a demographic.
d) To label someone is to place them in that demographic, depending on ones judgment (analysis) of that person
e) Labels are very important for people as they provide a feeling of association with something larger than ourselves.
13.4 Considering 13.3 e) it could be said that labeling ourselves removes responsibilities, much in the same that subscribing to religion does.
13.5 Why do people feel the need to subscribe to labels? “I dress this way, I’ve been called this, therefore I must act this way.”
13.6 To subscribe to a certain mode of thinking limits free thought, or the capacity of free thought. Therefore labels are dangerous and inhibit original and free thinking.
13.7 Considering 13.6, people accept servitude, and considering 13.3 e) do not wish to accept responsibility. Therefore people like to be lead (even in this society of artificial freedom, apparent and yet non-existent choice, and where our opinions seem to matter, but don’t.)
