In one of our discussions we spoke about Lawn People by Paul Robbins. One of the topics we discussed was the Hegemony Ideology and how that had a big impact on why a majority of the people did the things that they did. Time has passed and people have gotten more educated, so why does Hegemony still persist? Is it passed down from generation to generation? This may be one of the main reasons, but it may also be that being your own self is too much work for people. Going out and being a leader is stressful for most, so they give up without really trying much. It’s a lot more easier for people to see a group of others doing something and decide that’s what they want to do; whether it’s how they act, dress, or live. In the song In My Dreams by Kid Cudi, he ends it by speaking about people not wanting to be leaders in this time and age and how people much rather just follow others. He claims that people don’t stand up to the system that controls us, meaning the hegemonic ideology that we all live by, because it is a threat to the system. One thing that strikes me is that people know that we live under this ideology that makes us do most of the things that we do, but people have such a hard time spreading this. What is one way we could make others more aware of this Ideology and help them break out of this subliminal control they live by?
