    I suppose colloquialisms are template craic but the deterritorialisation of internet slang makes it repulsive, bland but ominous, something bad is happening to us

    We lose something through continued exposure to very large audiences

    A YouTuber said that. They had a breakdown and had to stop and said people shouldn't be contending with that many personalities and opinions on a daily basis.

    That makes sense. they're the best example of this terrible affliction. Mutating their personality and facial expressions into mass appeal engagement generators, hey what's up guys, locked into the feedback metrics, always on always wired, horrible.

    Lees began to feel a knock-on effect on his health. “Human brains really aren’t designed to be interacting with hundreds of people every day,” he says. “When you’ve got thousands of people giving you direct feedback on your work, you really get the sense that something in your mind just snaps. We just aren’t built to handle empathy and sympathy on that scale.” Lees developed a thyroid problem, and began to experience more frequent and persistent stretches of depression. “What started out as being the most fun job imaginable quickly slid into something that felt deeply bleak and lonely,” he says.

    It alters the brain chemistry over time. You might think you have to operate on a higher level, more switched on, fully tuned but I think to speak to large audiences effectively a repression has to take place, you kill off and sideline a bit of yourself and over time it takes its toll

    Shame is a key method of social control, possibly the main one, particularly in the kind of image and 'reputation' focused society we live in. It is also no coincidence that the most shameless people frequently rise to the top in both politics and business - they simply don't care if they're found out to be lying or suspected of whatever indiscretion, narcissism overrides the shame response. Which is usually an indicator of a 'personality disorder', where deep wells of shame exist, but are so deeply buried in one part of the psyche that they can seem simply not to be there. Trump and Johnson obviously ideal examples, Priti Patel too
