Unmasking The Persona in The Social Self: A Sociological Imagination?

In Asian philosophy, Confucianism and Christianity argue that unhappiness of any individual self is a product of our pretending of who we are which is not. Most of the time we are which is not because of the socialization that we choose to emerge with.

     For Example when we were children often we don’t know the rationality of harming others. As we grow in the precess of socialization we accept things us they are, like the exploitation of children and women, the use of substance that harm our bodies, the killing of the innocent in the womb, and the violation of the rights of others. It is also the satisfaction of our survival needs that motivates us to harm others. The submission to ones capacity to think, using the technology to unconsciously create a gap between him and those technologically illiterate, dehumanizes us; it violates our true nature of kindness and our ability to listen and empathize with others, like when we were all still children, doing the role playing.

     Humane sociologists observed that we need to unmask the persona in our social self and begin to rediscover our real self from the unreal. This self must be enlightened rather than to be entertained.
