if 4chan has taught me anything, its that alot of dumb-average intelligence people when combined to a single purpose with motivation can produce the results of a superintelligence.

democracy in it's theory is supposed to do that but the current forms of democracy in use purposely disenfranchise the majority of the hivemind from participation.

You think there is any solution to this? We are all ignorant. You can spend your entire life dedicated to a tiny subset of a field of hard science and still only end up as an expert by the end of your life in that particular sub field, not the entire discipline.

You think even the academic EXPERTS have an accurate grasp of complex systems like social interaction, politics, psychology, economics, etc? These "sciences" are still in their infancy and most people studying this stuff rely on the many compounding presuppositions and cultural norms to form their concept of truth. How many of these social studies written, curated and published by EXPERTS can even be replicated?

How the hell do you expect the average person to have a grape of what's true for economics, philosophy, politics, psychology, etc. All simultaneously? How the fuck do you think people can do this when society becomes exponentionally more complex due to increasing rates of change and population?

Nobody has any fucking idea what's true outside of objective sciences. Humanity has an ignorance problem but that does not necessitate a solution. The problem is eternal.

How come nobody talks about literature here? I'm new to this board and I haven't learned anything about literature in the past month or two, except that people who associate themselves with it are always talking about philosophers. Philosophers, not philosophy. I don't even read so you'd think I'd learn something here, but nope. I've never seen one of you discuss the themes in a famous work of literature or anything like that.

>last time
So, rather than spending a few minutes finding the book and checking it out for yourself, you decided to spend at least as long (and probably much longer) asking the opinions of a group of internet strangers?

And, having unsurprisingly got inconclusive and useless results from this process, rather than spending a few minutes checking the book out for yourself, you decided to ask internet strangers -again-?

Zizek uses the term in an Althusserian way. Ideology is an unconscious process always-already framing our political worldview. The crux of the break with Marx is the criticism of ideology as "social superstructure" (a structure which emerges from and governs material-economic relations) - ideology is already present on an ontological, individual level. This new theory of ideology is inherently psychoanalytic in its construction - hence lots of Lacan.
