IGO existence is built upon the notion of a self born within a story; the idea that our identities are shaped by the accounts we give of our lives. The central tenet of IGO vs Ego supporting my theory is revealed in the ability of all individuals to shape their lives by extending multiple instances of a described ‘self’ in action. IGO is projected through the BIDECK whose mental processes give a sense of self autobiographical narratives that exist primarily in a story whether or not its based factually or can be confirmed. For my definition, the IGO is that portrayal in mind of the self playing out in those various scenarios, replaying incidents to imagining new possibilities or just simply romantic fantasizing - its the 'selfie' of the mind's perception of being played out in imagination. It's me viewing 'I' go.
DASCISM: Democracy in Decline
Dascism is my new term for devolving political ideology, style of governance, political movement and set of mechanisms for acquiring and keeping power that are associated with neo-politics where leaders excite a core base of followers from which to source their support and authority from. Dascism can be seen as an American political variant forming on the far-right and derives from the national-populist and neo-nationalist sentiment seen in multiple nations worldwide from the late 2010s to the early 2020s. While it is true that Dascism is comparable to fascism there are important distinctions deserving of using this new term while pointing out that while there are parallels, there are also important dissimilarities. The term can also be applied to conservative-nationalist and national-populist movements in other Western democracies.
