SADISM:A MODERN DAY OVERRULING EMOTION
“Sadism” a term used for the people who find pleasure in the sorrow of others.
The term might be new for some of us, but the tendency isn’t. Whatever you say
“I’m very positive, I’m so compassionate, I don’t tend to deceive someone
playfully.” You know what’s going wrong in your mind (scary laugh). You know
how many times you masked yourself? Psychologists have found few
psychologically harmful personality as ‘Narcissism’ (excess love for oneself),
Machiavellianism (tending to manipulate others, attempting to achieve goals
cunningly, unethical in one’s advancing career)
According to research at University of California, the sadistic personality in average human
being has increased from 4 to 6 percent in span of just 5 years. If it rises to 10% there will be
sharp increase in criminal activities and on 15% humans will kill each other for absolutely minor
reasons. At 100% we don’t see humanity existing in any form.
Have you watched “Fifty Shades of Grey”? The sadism of the protagonist can be
seen in some of the sensual scenes. The serial killer in “EK Villain” was also victimized by the
sadistic personality disorder and kills any woman he sees happy as a medium to forget the
ongoing chaos of his life. Some common examples- Trend of putting memes or posts as a
weapon to satire someone in immoral manner. When you don’t get distinction and you realize
your friend is doing good at study and you try to disturb them. You feel satisfied when some
talks ill about the one you dislike, though it isn’t a noble thing.
I have read a book of Sydney Sheldon ”Tell Me Your Dreams” where a girls suffer from sadism
and develops ‘Multiple Personality Disorder’ and murders. Instead of giving constructive
suggestions we weaken people, and enjoy it. Social media is somehow provoking Sadism, people
envy other’s followers, likes, comments and compare their lifestyles with others especially with
the celebrities, luxury, fame, photos and status.
I think people write or act sadistically to control their emotions. I mean how can
we control emotions that way. It is more of our conscious spontaneity. In the
Alchemist by Paulo Coelho it’s written “the way u die and the day u die are the
best day and the best way to die.” So why not let live a life where we are seeking
the best in everything we do rather than taunting others in their bad. You know it
better how much negativity you can bear, right? Don’t let Sadism bother you.
