|50.||born again christian|
Someone who rebels against their upbringing in force so much, that they become a jerk, drug addict, alcoholic, sex addict, or possibly worse, but in later life they become terrified of the inevitable end, and go back to a sober, penitent and pious lifestyle. Such a person is also terrified of the possibility of hell, as may be dictated in a religious upbringing. Such a person then, in order to cancel out all fear of death, and possibility of hell actually existing, will take out a Hell Insurance Policy at the local fire and brimstone church, by paying out his unquestioning obedience to dogma, and giving his soul to (a usually white and conservative) Jesus, in return for a place in eternal heaven.more...
Born again christians tend to be highly conservative in politics, and regularly ostracize minorities, non-Christians and Catholics, as well as try to demonstrate unquestioning loyalty to a conservative political establishment. Militarism is also quite common as well. This pattern of behavior amongst working-class caucasians of European extraction, is common in the American South and Midwest, and especially in Northern Ireland.
Calvinism, a miserable interpretation of protestantism which exemplifies self-denial and hatred of the body, as well as ideation of salvation, is the cultural source of the born again phenomenon, as well as the tent revival phenomenon of the earlier 20th century. Calvinists were removed from England before and after Cromwell in the 17th century, (d...
What you guys aren't seeing is that Slipknot's self-titled record has a HUGE Hardcore influence--they used to go see Hatebreed all the time and you can hear it in their constant use of the frets 0 1 4 3 on the sixth string. Listen to "Eyeless"--that's a Hardcore breakdown, I'm sorry. I don't even know if it was intentional, but it sure sounds like it, and some of that record is just downright violent.
I absolutely hate this band but I do feel like something of note was created with that CD and I'm actually looking to write a critical theory piece on it from a cultural standpoint.
Slipknot fucking sucks, but that first record was very very interesting and had they not been corporate darlings from the outset I feel like their art could have been dangerous. But instead it became fare for Ozzfest metalhead faggots.
|52.||you don't even know me|
The default response used by someone who is confronted with a truth about themselves that they would rather not face.
This phrase is commonly used by addicts, those with low self esteem and just about anyone else whose biggest fear is that someone else will notice their problem and offer to help.
Using this phrase successfully pushes away anyone wanting to help, and the user ironically ensures that indeed, nobody will ever know them.
In another ironic twist, if someone you know well says this phrase to you, then it means either:
1) they've been lying to you about who they really are (in which case it's their own fault that you don't know them), or
2) they have suddenly and fundamentally changed in the few seconds prior to telling you that you don't know them (in which case they also don't know themselves).
However, the case is usually that they're unobservant, self-absorbed, don't like that you were so easily able to identify their issues and resent the fact that they are unable to pay attention to anything long enough to 'know' it. They assume that everyone else is like this too, which is why they seem so shocked when uttering this phrase.
"I think you've been ignoring your family and you should spend more time with them."
"You don't even know me!"
"I think your drinking is negatively affecting your performance at work."
"You don't even know me!"
"I think you should take a shower because you stink."
"You don't even know me!"
A moment of self denial, privation, or sacrifice that a person uses for sympathy and pity for years on end or to guilt people into doing what they want.
Ed knew that driving his girlfriend to the airport at 4am was just the martyr moment he needed to get more oral.
“Lilly, you can just jump down off that cross now. Staying three minutes after work is not a martyr moment worthy of asking for Friday night off.”
