Once again, The strange disembodied “social mind” has commandeered a meaningful term in the effect of deconstruction and dissolution of the human being. Quite an invocation of Marxist capitalism, we find this kind of deconstructing of legitimacy in many terms; for example as I have talked about here and there: The term “radical” and even “existential” or even “identity” has been ripped from its thoughtful accessible substance and reflective anchors into an eternally social deconstructed nothingness of popular meaning.

In this light, it might not be too difficult to see how, from the standpoint of institution, governments are indeed being/becoming corrupt and failing at their task on one hand, and individuals are plagued with all sorts of crisis of mental health on the other.

Definition, by its very nature, is something that is taken away from Being to become “ideology”, like an idea (Idealica) but where the idea loses its ideal, or abstract, sense and becomes something that is projected out into the world as a sort of real thing that affects us from the outside, which is the basis of current capitalistic global state, And the reason that Cedric Nathaniel discusses conventional philosophy in the sense of religion, or, something that requires faith in order for it to operate or otherwise have effect on the individual person. Effect, here, is taken as the meaning where intellectually we may understand something but where the very understanding of something is shaped around something that is effectively denied; that denied object I offer from a psychological perspective is emotion. (and then see my post about the poly vagal theory).  For example, a quite Zizek type of view: if I have no worry about paying off my credit card debt, the latter about consolidating my debt has no effect upon me. The confidence of the existence of my debt has no relation to any worry that is often supposed in the offers to be rid of the debt, that is, as though the letter to relieve my debt should necessarily cause me concern about my debt if I am sane.

Starting from the simple description of how the word “triggered” has been molested and commandeered for socially ideological purposes, we might begin to understand how ideology itself is a facet in the creation of mental disorder. For one would be ultimately lead to ask is why should I give any sort of credence or acknowledgment to this more popularized form of “triggered”, say? And why should I have any sort of reaction to the fact that these terms such as “trigger” might be being used in a way to dismantle or otherwise discredit the validity of the individual human being? In the sarcastic popular use of the term “triggered”, has occurred with the popular term “rad” (radical) as another word to mean “cool”, but also in the same way as “existential ” is now used to mean concerning anything that might feel uncomfortable about living life (as though any feeling that might deviate from the feeling of comfort is inherently part of some existential crisis that a person is having). The actual occurrence of the human being is downplayed and dismissed with reference to the ideological social truth, or what is supposed of truth, due to the effect of the emotional component that is being denied in the act of making intellectual sense of the event. 

It doesn’t take very long to come to the borderlands of a conclusion which understands ideology as less something that we can somehow deconstruct, or find out any encoding meanings about, overcome any power plays inherent in the use of various terms; rather, we begin to contemplate if the very idea of ideology, as currently portrayed, is itself a symptom of mental illness.
