The Materialists, The Cultural Creatives, The Social and Ecological Progressives and The Traditionalists

I wonder where you’re heading…personally, I’ve been riding the culturally creative vibe for the past couple of years. I’ve heard most people fall into the following 4 movements, although of course; there’s overlap. I’m not sure which one is growing faster than the rest, depending on one’s cultural reality…which city, which country in which you reside.

But I do think they can be broken down into 4 movements.

There’s the Modernists; they are materialists, into the economy, the stock market, exploring and celebrating new technology.

The Cultural Creatives; we’re into exploring consciousness through various forms of meditation and philosophy such as esotericism. We’re constantly trying to unlocking the imagination or basically any of the topics Gary Lachman has covered in his 20 books so far.

The Social and Ecological progressives; they’re heavily concerned with gender issues, politics, climate change, engaged in various forms of activism.

The Traditionalist; They are Fundamentalists, Evangelical and deeply political. Resentful of the Social and Ecological progressives. They respond to fear and would prefer the cultural clock be reversed.

I’m not sure which movement is growing fastest, but we all have our concerns. I wonder where you’re heading…
