Psychology has dwelt in various controversies since its inception. In today’s modern era, the mere usage of a term is viewed under a microscope with much higher resolution. More than the contemporary academic worlds in which we live in, terms are now referred to the analytical philosophy. And, so on the very same track is the coinage of the term “subservience”.
Humans who majorly contribute in the pie compartments are now associated with the term subservient. Is this true owing to the shackles of liberalization and globalization that have together provided the platform for each human body to become masters of his own accomplishments???
The general belief that an onlooker would establish of a person being submissive would be his slavish attitude which gives him more “settlement” than “accomplishment”. Keeping silence although the discussions itself could be termed slavish. Layman public would not be in admiration of the fact that we are known to be inclined to submit to orders of higher authority replacing their enthusiasm to oppose for wrongdoings or taking the right credit and instead shaking hands with the domineering lot preponderantly.
Is this in our blood??? Genes coming from our ancestors? Or is it mere reflection of us as “poor thinkers of high intelligence”.
Speaking broadly, it conforms to the question that are we just being the silent creepers with no minds and being mere flunkeys or a race of mere stagnant lot who have found utmost atonement in being employed rather than being the employers, being the slaves rather being served and in all being the yes-boss stooges.
As a cognitive noetic, we can ascertain the very statement of Humans being termed subservient from two sides.
Focusing upon one side, literally in fields of education, democracy, bureaucracy etc, we have made our stand to fend against the testing times.
But, till today, we people with high intelligence, turns out, are poor thinkers in matters of snapping the position that we merit. Somewhere or the other, we get caught in the ‘intelligence trap”. This is rightly connected to not being belligerent. If we start taking up obligatory responsibilities, then surely our view on a subject and its very premise and perception would be counted in the eyes of the higher authority.
Going by our perceptual experience, we should start confronting the very situations in our road to pinnacle for only then can we become symbolic masters of our reign. Our so-called subservient demeanor has to give way to presciently thinking.
There are several instances which prove, us not being the submissive lot. Quoting from several socio-politico-economic examples, we know that citizens have actually started voicing their opinions in a war-ridden society where no more injustice of any kind is tolerated.
Several governments’ dominant attitude is shown by the justice parameters that evince maladroitness and ineptness giving solace in disguise to only the depraved individuals and terrorists. The vitiated people too are beaming to be under the compartmentalization in several judiciary systems because of their cack-handedness. This is being questioned by millions of citizens which again ultimately showcases the system’s impuissance as if henpecked by some other authority but peoples’ attitude itself marks that they all yes to discretion.
Winning is not everything but the only thing”. And, to achieve it, the slavish attitude is to be done away with
