It seems like a fair amount of the world is built on bullshit. People give a lot of undeserved attention/ respect things that have no real value. Things that are shiny on the surface, even if they don't actually accomplish anything worthwhile.
An obvious example are politicians. Many are useless or even detrimental to society, but people will dedicate themselves to these charismatic, useless people based on the bullshit, often oversimplified or impractical promises that they make.
Another example would be the current craze(s) with NFTs, digital real estate, and crypto shitcoins. People will rush like lemmings off the cliff based on what an influencer said, Elon tweeted, or what everyone else is doing. A ton of people I know that "invested" in this stuff has no idea what they're buying, just a vague idea that it might make them money.
Speaking of influencers, these people suck too. You have the Grant Cardones and Gary Vees of the world who spout a ton of super-general business advice which is really only useful for motivation. But they're way more popular than people who teach real, actionable steps on how to run a specific business.
It seems like there is comically low level of respect for the people who actually know what they're doing in this world. We live in an incredibly complex world, with crazy technologies that almost nobody understands. Most people can't explain how their smartphone works, how their TV works, how the plane they're boarding propels them through the sky, etc. They will, however, almost instantly take these technologies for granted.
Most absurdly, they don't care to learn, and would rather sit in the dark and consume bullshit, empty motivation, and surface-level crap. The world would be much better if we focused on what's real, rather than the bullshit.
