There is such a syndrome, which may be determined of a social body — I have called it, "millenium syndrome"
— and there, you see some words of it, in form
, indeed — a tangible syndrome, however, whereupon: "Authority" conceives, and "individual" conceives (perhaps, with naught of any candor, before "acceptance") thereafter.
Yet, it is not a matter of individual/authority, which I mean to indicate, for how it is determinable, of persons and, broadly, of society. Rather, I define the syndrome, thusly: The real occurrence of a perception, as if time and experience were not continuous, across a "major event".
(Notedly: Such requires, of the psyche, a "major event" to perceive the discontinuity upon)
While not intending to "seed the audience with thought", I've not written much about it, yet. Simply I've tried "cite", in general form, some bases for case studies, and to present some more explanation — and have done as so, in the rest of this entry — with some suggestions (however "small", and however "albeit") for any further referencing.
For "case studies", I would address, firstly, two recent, entirely social
phenomena: The turn of the C.E. "twenty first century" — and you know, the Gregorian calendar is not the only, applied of the entire world — there is also the hijri calendar, for one.
As the second event, there were the murders and personal responses — of persons of this nation — including all scuttlebutt and accusation, occurred of and after the 9/11 (2001?) attacks, visited upon locations in the United States, and then, any attempted, "copycat" phenomena, and then, the issue, remaining: Later responses, "hinged" upon the event, and occurring of people, and of artisans, and of "news" peddlers and journalists, and of military, and responses, expressed as bureaucratic policy, "newly" occurring — of all it, but beyond normal human reaction (which one might determine, of any sense of normalcy), and such that is continged, in original place, upon events, occurred in that one day, and upon "popular", social, and personal "reinforcement" of reactions, which have been occurring, thereafter.
The reference, of the audio report, whereupon this thought occurred — immediately, then later, in further consideration — to attention: U.S. to Tighten Passport Requirements for Travelers — of NPR's All Things Considered.
There is a transcript of the report, available, via the site; it is, in origin, an audio report — and you know, I'd thought that the report had mentioned visas, though the summary for the page says only "passports", actually – in fact – becoming newly required, for travelers, faring between the US and either of Mexico and/or Canada (and "we, apparently", have not yet leaned so much, from the E.U.)
The phrase which caught my attention, in the report, was "post 9/11".
For some further reference, one may simply search Google, for that one phrase
For any further reference, I might suggest: NY Times; Washington Post; any "indi. media", whereupon writers would not have been jerking knees and pens, and would have been arriving at justifiable, provable, wholly backable "ends" of consideration. "Pardon the absence of links, here", however.
One might consider Gestalt psychology, for how it pertains, about this matter of "major event" — as may seem to occur, as such-and-such a "figure", upon a "ground" of "normal experience" — furthemore.
Maybe nobody will quibble, here, about "normal experience". Ordinarily, some discourse would be how we, as people, may come to understand "more things", anyway.
Candor is fine, either; I simply want to not be distracted, from anything that would pertain, towards/of/about this.
"Discourse goes not well, upon hair-splitting."
