8 Reasons Why Modern Americans Seem Soulless and Inhuman

Have you ever noticed (but never dared to tell anyone about it) that modern Americans seem soulless and inhuman, as if they lacked warmth and feeling? Well it's not all in your head. Even TV shows and movies reflect this.

You might have noticed that the TV shows and movies from the 60's and 70's had very different characters from today. The characters in those days exuded kindness, warmth, feeling and had strong morals. The main characters were never assholes, even if they were action heroes. They cared about others, and were nice and friendly, like people you'd be glad to hang out with. And they had an air of familiarity to them, like they were part of your family. Viewers felt an emotional attachment to them. Love and drama scenes were full of genuine emotion and feeling. Even the music in older TV shows and movies was very romantic.

But modern TV shows and movies have cold, uncaring, gritty characters that seem soulless, inhuman and devoid of feeling or warmth. All they care about is acting tough and badass. With no emotional investment in them, you don't even care if they live or die. Sadly, I guess that reflects the attitude of young modern Americans (or is supposed to).

It's kind of like that 1978 sci-fi horror movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" with Donald Sutherland. In that great classic film, alien pods replicate humans on Earth into alien clones who are devoid of any emotion or feeling. At the end, everyone in the city of San Francisco has turned into soulless inhuman clones. You gotta wonder if the filmmakers were trying to tell us something, since the film's scenario so chilling accurately depicts modern America. Plus, the humans only get replicated when they "go to sleep" which was a great pun, whether intended or not.

Many foreigners and soulful aware people have observed to me that Americans seem to lack soul, and have only money in their eyes. It's as if the "life force" has been drained or sucked out of them. Now, I don't see how it would even be possible to suck out the soul or life force of an entire nation, so I can only wonder if something "out of this world" is going on at a higher or deeper level of reality. (Reality is multi-layered after all, with both physical and non-physical layers) It's as if invisible extra-dimensional forces are at work.

However, since I cannot speculate on things unseen, I can only try to find more physical earthly reasons and causes. So here are some that I offer based on my speculation and educated guesses.

1. Americans are conditioned to be single-minded about the purpose of life, which is to make money. They are taught that life and everything is all business. A workaholic lifestyle is considered to be the norm that one strives for. Such a narrow focus on life suppresses their creativity and imagination, and makes them dull as well. 

In America, the pursuit of money has REPLACED the human soul. Thus the eyes of Americans look empty and plastic, not soulful or passionate. Their eyes often look depressed too, as though they've been overworked and been overconsuming too much with nothing else to live for.

Moreover, the ever increasing high cost of living in America (due to inflation and the malpractices of the Federal Reserve and banking elite), which has gone out of control, has further perpetuated the need for living a workaholic lifestyle to keep up.

Most Americans don't realize how insane it is to live on a treadmill though. They never stop to ask themselves this enlightening question: What's the point of making a living if all you do everyday is work to make a living? After all, there's no "living" to make if there's no time or freedom to "live" and do what you want right? Thus the phrase "making a living" becomes a self-contradiction and oxymoron.

2. Americans are conditioned to be materialistic and derive happiness from consumerism and material possessions. Thus their focus is on the external rather than the internal. As a result, they do not cultivate their inner self or soul and thus become soulless. This explains why people who are highly materialistic seem to have empty soulless eyes with no inner self or spirit radiating within, and lack true passion as well.

Americans also trade happiness for comfort, by following the system rather than their soul. This is a big mistake because when you focus on bodily comforts and neglect the wishes of your soul, heart or spirit, you deny yourself and live a very fake and inauthentic life.

3. Americans are conditioned to live in fear and paranoia. Someone told me this once: "Cars run on fuel, Americans run on fear." The typical American mentality, personality and attitude is in a state of fear consciousness. You can see it in their personality, body language, and vibe. Their media perpetuates fear by feeding them bad news and tragedies everyday. Studies show that the more you watch the news, the more paranoid you become, which is no surprise.

But even if they listen to the alternative media, they will still be fearmongered, because the alternative media tells them that their enemy is their own government and the lies, corruptions and conspiracies of the powers that be. So they are always kept in fear of something, whether by establishment sources or alternative sources.

The thing is, having fear when there is real danger involved is normal and necessary for survival. But Americans are in a mode of fear about everything, to the point where it dominates their state of mind and consciousness, becoming excessive and beyond reason. They even start to fear things that don't exist. As a result, they see every stranger as a potential psycho, criminal or terrorist.

What's ironic is that in foreign countries where there is a higher level of danger and crime, people are not as paranoid. For example, Russia, Mexico and the Philippines all have higher crime on their streets than America does, but yet the people there are not paranoid or in a constant state of fear at all. In those countries, you can walk up to strangers (including women) and talk to them and they will be relaxed and comfortable. Unlike Americans, they do not have imaginary fears. Rather, they are more in touch with reality and their personalities are more down-to-earth.

I would even venture to guess that Americans project their fears and lack of freedom to other nations. They view people in other nations as living in fear, being unkind and unfree, while themselves as friendly, warm and open, even though the truth is the exact opposite.

The problem with being in a perpetual state of fear, or being in fear consciousness, is that it lowers your energy and chakra levels to a slow vibration, which makes you less aware, less conscious, and impairs your ability to think clearly. It inhibits your potential for growth, creativity, openness, adventure, and new ideas. As a result, your soul/spirit becomes low density and less vibrant. Rather than being on fire, you feel weak and helpless.

The consequence is that fear narrows your mind. The more fearful you are, the more narrow your mindset is. But the less fear you have, the more open-minded you will be, and along with it, your imagination, creativity, and soul will blossom and expand as well.

4. Americans are not curious nor are they drawn to novelty. They prefer familiarity over novelty, and lack curiosity. Thus they are not drawn to new ideas, new people and new things. Instead, they seek the familiar and the routine, in people and things, and do not trust the unfamiliar.

This explains why Americans are not comfortable with meeting new people and why they don't like talking to strangers unless it's for business only. American social life is highly cliquish, which means that it is limited to within groups that are CLOSED and EXCLUSIVE. Preferring familiarity, Americans only socialize with established friends in their social clique, and are not open with strangers. To strangers, they tend to be standoffish and distant, as if everyone is expected to mind their own business.

The problem with social life being limited to cliques is that cliques by nature are closed and exclusive. Thus, the people within them are going to have an attitude and mentality that is "closed and exclusive" as well (or snobby and stuck up in other words). Therefore, to fit into a clique, you have to be "closed and exclusive" yourself. Otherwise, you will have a hard time breaking in as you will not be on the same wavelength as the people in them.

(What's interesting to note is that when two American strangers run into each other in a foreign country, they are much more likely to start a conversation and ask questions about each other, than if they met in America, which speaks volumes.)

This is especially the case with women in America. Studies show that women prefer familiarity, whereas men are more drawn to novelty. See here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23740467
Thus women in America are more cliquish and socially closed when it comes to meeting new people and socializing with strangers, than men are. This is a consistent pattern I've seen time and time again. No question about it.

The significance here is that people who are more curious, more open, seek new experiences, and drawn toward novelty, tend to be more passionate, creative and imaginative than those who aren't. Thus they will seem more soulful and alive as well.

5. Americans are taught to only care about themselves, be independent and not need others. As a result, they are socially disconnected and distant from others. As they say, every man is an island. By default there is an "ice barrier" between strangers, hence the term "breaking the ice". Americans don't talk to strangers unless its business related.

Most friendships are facades and more of an acquaintance relationship than a true friendship. True friendship, connection, camaraderie, love, romance, community, and family values, don't exist in their natural form in modern America.

Inwardly, Americans are cold and unfeeling, albeit with fake plastic smiles, as well as arrogant and asshole-ish. In fact, modern American television and movies idolize characters who are uncaring assholes with no warmth, which reflect the typical modern American personality, sadly. In contrast, television shows in the past (before the 1990's) featured characters that were warm and caring. I guess to be truly independent and not need others, one has to become cold and uncaring. This makes them seem soulless as well.

6. In American public schools, imagination and creativity are suppressed, not cultivated. Children are conditioned to be left-brained by following steps, memorizing data and repeating it on tests. This makes them left brain dominant, while ignoring the right brain, which controls creativity, imaginative and freethought. As a result, they become robotic, zombie-like and dull. They also become rigid and not as open to new ideas. That's the goal of the American system, unfortunately, which treats everything as a business, including people.

Deep down, people can feel intuitively that they've been suppressed and controlled into an inauthentic existence. That's why their faces look depressed, empty and grumpy. Their "life force" has been suppressed and killed off. They can feel that something is wrong, but can't consciously understand why. So they feel this constant dissatisfaction and emptiness. But rather than engage in introspection, they engage in consumerism and making money. But ultimately none of it leads to true happiness, joy or fulfillment.

7. Food in America contains more processed ingredients than in any other country. Just look at the food labels at the supermarket in America and you'll see what I mean. There are so many processed ingredients and additives listed that you can't even pronounce. Not so in other countries. And who knows what those GMO's (genetically modified organisms) from Monsanto, which are now in most American food, are doing to us genetically.

You've heard the saying, "You are what you eat". Well if most of what you eat everyday contains a high amount of processed artificial ingredients, then logic would follow that you will become "artificial and processed" yourself, wouldn't it? Thus, the more "artificial and processed" you become, the less you will seem to be alive and soulful.

8. The architecture in America is dull and soulless. The buildings in most of America, such as the architectural design of the suburbs, strip malls, and corporate offices, have no style or creativity. They look soulless, empty, depressing, rigid and conformist, especially compared to the rich creative colorful architecture in Europe. As a result, the soulless architecture that surrounds Americans must play a part in making them soulless as well, since the environment rubs off on the people in it.

The lonely consequences of non-conformity

In regard to these likely reasons why Americans seem so soulless, the sad implication is that IF YOU do not share these same qualities, and if you are a freethinker with a soul, then you will be on a different wavelength and not be able to connect with others.

As a consequence, you may be ostracized from social life and dating in America, leaving you feeling lonely, alienated and isolated. It will be hard for you to make friends, get dates or have fun. You will have a hard time breaking into cliques, which are mandatory to have a social life in America, because as mentioned earlier, people (especially women) are only social within cliques, they don't go out and meet new people.

As a result, life will feel boring, empty and depressing. You will have no action in your life. And you will be ignored and left wondering, "What happened to the myth of the wild open America shown in the media?" because the reality around is that everyone is closed and cliquish, especially women.

However, you can't simply "pretend" to fit in. You see, if you are on a different wavelength or frequency than others, they will FEEL it and SENSE it too. They will get weirded out by you without knowing why. If you are on the polar opposite wavelength as them, they will begin to fear you. You will act as a "mirror" to them which shows them what they have really become, which makes them uncomfortable. After all, darkness fears light.

NE Asian countries share the same soulless traits

But the above dominant traits do not just apply to Americans. I have found that they apply to NE Asians as well. By that I mean people from Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Singapore. These countries also suppress their people's souls so that they can become workaholics. Like Americans, they are repressed, live in fear and paranoia, and limit their social life to within closed cliques.

Thus they are not open, do not make eye contact with strangers, and are not relaxed. They prefer familiarity over novelty, and are highly conformist as well. Their mentality is one of groupthink. (But as Aaron Russo said, "Groupthink is no think.") In these ways, NE Asians are very similar to Americans.

(What's funny is that NE Asians are tricked by Hollywood into thinking that America is very open and wild, but it's all illusion of course.)

Thus, if you are a soulful open-minded freethinker, you will not fit in there and will not connect with people there either, leaving you feeling alienated, isolated and lonely as well. It will be hard to make friends, join social networks, have fun, or get dates there since your vibe and wavelength will be different from others. So I would avoid NE Asian countries as well, if you do not fit into such repressed conformist cultures. Otherwise, you will feel ostracized and be bored there.

For instance, in my native country of Taiwan, I notice the same correlation as in America. Taiwanese live in a high degree of fear and paranoia, and are conditioned to be workaholics with very few interests. They are focused on external materialistic things and only care about practical issues. There is no focus on the internal, and no cultivation of the soul. Thus they seem soulless as well.

Therefore, I cannot connect with Taiwanese either and feel ostracized from social groups there. Their wavelength is way different from mine. Plus their social life is confined to within closed exclusive cliques as well, and women do not talk to strangers.

  2. Winston, I believe one of the main reasons why Americans are soulless when compared to other countries is because the BUSINESS and POLITICAL ELITES want it that way!!! I don't think it was an accident that these SOCIAL ENGINEERS desired our whole society to narrowly focus on only money and business interest using psychological warfare (fear, envy, greed, etc.) and division (divide and conquer). Also, economic warfare (monopolies, inflation, taxation, debt, credit, etc.) are used to control peoples' access to resources. Along with fostering cutthroat competitiveness instead of corporation and collaboration. This process began way back during the GUILED AGE with the ROBBER BARONS (the Rockerfellers, Carniges, Morgans, Vanderbuilts, Fords, etc.). They wanted a to set up a school system much like a factory that would produce (left-brained) obedient workers and soldiers. This would benefit BIG BUSINESS and GOVERNMENT. What they didn't want a new generation of freethinkers, creative artists and writers, scientists, intellectuals, philosophers, etc. Because these types of individuals would tend to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. Thus getting others to question and challenge the status quo!!! Another reason why Americans are soulless is because of the breakdown of strong families and communities. It is within these two structures people learn to connect and think of others. However, many social forces such as FEMINISM have ruined them. According to the late Aaron Russo, Feminism was created by the Rockerfellers through CIA funding of Ms. Magazine. It's purpose was to get women out of the home so that 1.) they can be taxed 2.) their children can be raised and modeled by the state. This also done to further the plan for a NEW WORLD ORDER!!!

  3. I live In Singapore , Winston and i agree that Singapore women are souless and unapproachable. That's why i hit on the filipina maids to release my sexual fustration, not because they are maids, but because they are naturally very friendly , socialableand outgoing unlike singaporean women. They appreciate and love me for who i am. I can't travel abroad due to lack of money and resources, but i am thankful to have filipinas and indonesia girls here. And just to let you know , maybe you should include indonesia, because they are super friendly to strangers too

  4. Thank you so much for this article. I, too, have always felt this way but never fully understood it until a short while ago. My mother is from Poland and although I have lived here my whole life, I always clashed with other girls my age, had trouble making friends, and vibing even with those closest to me. I've tried to explain things similar to this to my boyfriend, but have been told that its not them, its me. I'm so glad that others understand this stand-offishness and plasticity; I think that at twenty I'm pretty set in my ways and would be better off moving to another nation that still believes in wholesom-eness, passion, and authenticity! (; Best wishes to you

  9. Would just like to correct that Singapore is actually a SE Asian country not a NE Asian country....

    I hope you realize you're making a really broad generalization here.... a fast pace of life doesn't necessarily mean a "depressed and soulless" life lol. In the end, it all boils down to attitude. I have seen plenty of people who succeed in working hard while playing hard and enjoying life at the same time. Just my two 2 cents worth

  10. Dear Author,

    I am going to get emotional, because I have no one in this country to whom I can express myself, only to my best friend who is from Lebanon, and we are in different places now. She was the one who put into words what I had been feeling, especially after moving to Dallas, Texas. I am from Miami which has a little more warmth because of the Cuban culture. But it's still in America, and it can't avoid being changed by the system. Life there is mostly about working--you go from work to your hermit cave. I call it a hermit cave because here we are all either forced to live like hermits in their caves with no social life, or live like ravenous beasts who have on their minds mostly things like food and sex. Actually, you are forced to become both here. If you come into contact with people, it's only to use them. Religion here in the U.S. is a joke. I am barely hanging on to my faith, because I feel so alone. I went to Lebanon last summer, and I have been in depression ever since I came back. The Arabs are known for their warmth and hospitality., and nothing is more true. They don't care about money. Everything was paid on my behalf while I was there, and it hurt them if I offered to pay. Everyone was concerned that I was happy and enjoying my time...they wanted to find me someone to marry, to that point they cared about my happiness. Of all the cultures I have experienced, the Arab is the best. I prefer living under bombs but happily, than in the fake peace the U.S. offers. Lebanon blends modern and traditional. Lebanon is my favorite. I really hope to go there and live there, but I am always feeling crazy and I feel like maybe God doesn't want me there. It could be my neurotic spirituality that's keeping me back. I am just so full of anger at God because I have to be a citizen of this country. My family does not feel how I feel, even though I have gotten them to understand me somewhat. I feel that they will always be in denial, because to call into question American values is to call themselves into question, and people can't handle that. I don't blame them! If my family decided to move to Lebanon, I would be so happy

    1. I agree with some of what you express above, but it is folly to put blame onto your idea of God - "blame God" - this is pure folly - God is so huge - like Universe, so that little petty concerns we have should not be nit-picked into a form of "blaming God" for bad things in life. These bad things must be motivators for changing one's life, not for reacting in negative blame.

      Otherwise, I wish you well in your quest (like mine) to leave the cold-mean USA (white people here). Remember that ingrained into most white Americans (but not all!) is white-supremacy. America IS a WHITE-SUPREMACIST nation (I swear by this thanks to all of the crappy talk I hear coming out of the mouths of most of my white acquaintences in this small town of California. Also, just travel to northern Idaho, USA, and you WILL see WHY!

      Good luck in your eventual escape! Steve

  12. Winston....Surprise! I'm one American woman who completely agrees with you. There aren't many of us though. I actually just found your page by googling "soulless Americans" just to see what interesting things might come up. This has been becoming more and more clear to me over the last 15 to 20 years and I've learned to deal with it, but I just had a particularly weird experience today which is what prompted me to search for ANYTHING/ANYONE who understood, and I found it here! Thanks! I thank god I do know some people who aren't that far gone yet (and hopefully won't ever be) but many of them...even some of my own family...have been showing some of the signs of this phenomenon. I agree with Grady Cofer Jr. that it is not likely any accident and there are probably (psychopathic) social engineers behind it...who may or may not know, and most likely don't care.... just how much damage they have done. There are those who would argue that souls can't be stolen, only given away, and that may ultimately be true but I think people are taken completely by surprise and are dealing with forces they don't or can't understand and are duped into slowly having their souls drained away...and then their own self respect is the next to go..etc..etc.. I worry most about young people who seem sometimes like they never had a chance to experience anything truly real and may therefore never have a chance to find their way back.

Soulless killer nasty people who surrounded my van by driving in a vehicle-pack on the wrong side of the highway! Scary! I had to bail out on a pullout soon as one came up!

  17. Maybe there is no such thing as an American. Maybe America is a mere idea. While other nations are rooted in blood, traditions, the fatherland, America bases its national identity on the cult of work, the cult of achievement, the vice of busyness, the curse of technology. This great land of America is nothing more than property insurance. Oh and Keep in mind-- that is how we see your land as well; nothing more than private property to be sold to the highest bidder...Or we get the guns out.

  18. I'm not really that familiar with America but I agree in the Philippines being soulful since I live there. To set an example would be this, when going home, I saw that the traffic would take too long so I decided to walk all the way home since I like long walks and the sun feels so good. I met a cheerful person there looking for a certain store that's near my home. I offered to lead him and he cheerfully agreed. We had a fun talk. Anyways, the streets here with people are busy and I pretty much see a lot of happy fellows. Poverty and the like made people here soulful and hardworking. In fact, my goal is to work and see how high I can reach before retiring peacefully to enjoy myself. I can make friends easily and they're all cheerful. If there's a game, I can easily join in and if I'm already in it, we can pretty much accept anyone who wants to join. I mean, my classmates and I were playing basketball and some random guy wanted to join in and we accepted it without a second thought. You've written a great article as an eye opener.

  19. Hello Winston. I'm so glad I came across this, and I completely agree. I was born and raised in South America. Unfortunately my parents brought me here when I was 15. I'm now married to a man who was born and raised here and will never leave, so I'm stuck with it. I hope my sons will not turn out like this. I'm an artist, and freethinker. I've been shunned and excluded by the cliques ever since I arrived in 1976. Thank god for my faith in Jesus. Perhaps someday my husband will change his mind. People here are generally arrogant, selfish, egotistical, and emotionally cold. What is even worse is I'm encountering more who are downright cruel and vicious.

Superficially, American is horribly cold and chilly - worse in the winter too!

    THE AMERICAN MILITARY - ever-willing to bomb your own country for its own selfish greedy reasons, has (Pentagon) a systematic program of harrasment of small towns via military-aircraft attacks! It has gotten this bad now - the US Navy, Air Force, and Army pilots (etc.) literally attack, with gigantic sonic-blasting, the little towns in the California desert - specifically, the Owens Valley of California - you talk about soul-less technological machine-hell-risen Amerika - this is the place to experience all the negativism that one can imagine America to have descended into - HERE in good old southern-California.

    I have traveled to 18 nations since 1996 and I get the cold-chills as the day approaches when I am required to return to the Machine-Hell-Risen-Redneck-Gun-Head consumer-culture with its hateful politics. I SWEAR I have weeks to get re-used to being back "home." God! So this article above that Winston wrote is dead-on if one has any kind of open mind.

    Yes be aware that the American Pentagon does plan on eventual total global destruction, and this is reflected in their treatment of American citizens on the ground...; Please see:

    OK - Well done Winston! Steve

  29. While I have yet to go to Asia, especially east Asia, but I would think people in rural areas of these countries (Korea, Japan, Taiwan, etc.) are a little more open than people in the city. There's a YouTube account of a lady living on the rural outskirts of town in Nagoya, Japan and she says the atmosphere's a little different. She's also married to a Japanese man! You gotta check it out. Her name is smartalecky1. As far as America is concerned, this place is overrated in more ways than one. I'm already ostracized by friends and family for not trying to achieve an unrealistic expectation of being "on top" or close to rich. It's horrible. That's why I keep to myself 'til I can move. I hate the states.

  31. Not only in the USA. I have a little note in my Facebook "The World is ruled by psychopaths". Psychopaths are people 'without soul', that mean emotional areas of their brains are undeveloped. They are emotionally disabled. That is why they do not feel shame, empathy, shame, regrets, love, etc. They only care about themselves. While psychopaths live everywhere, the USA rulers, who are psychopaths themselves, push their psychopathic values onto the Society, because it suits them. That is how the USA encourage psychopaths and they become "successful".

  34. This is plain stupidity.
    I, as an American woman, know for a fact this isn't true.
    From reading this article, I've come to a realization how many people such as yourself are idiotic.

    1. You sound like a typical American. You just proved the point of the article. Even your response lacked any passion, motion, or logic. You sound like a soulless robot. I bet you take a lot of selfies and don't know anything outside of your own pathetic life

  36. Yep, I've seen this trend first hand in certain environments. Bars I've been to in Dallas, TX are especially soulless. Seems to be trendy to be too cool for school there. Unless you're already friends with the bartenders/owners, they tend to be pretentious. San Antonio bars tend to be the opposite of that, i.e. friendly, fun & cool. But bars are now thing. In general, average folks seems 50/50 as to whether or not they are friendly or dickheads. Ok, so that's my two cents.

  37. Completely agree with what you said.. I feel so sad about this.... this fact is just too depressing for me as an international student coming to USA for a better future

  38. You have some truth in here but unfortunately you are ultimately misleading and wrong. I've been all over Europe and America - Americans are on average much friendlier. Americans vary from state to state - people in Georgia are NOT like those in New York [southerners are far nicer people]. Materialism and consumerism is the curse of humanity - you will find it everywhere. America has the most inspirational leaders, artists, inventors and philosophers on the planet. Don't judge a people by only spiritual pitfalls that you'll find in most places - unfortunately.
