The global media is controlled by the same people who control our economies. As such is the case, our view of the world and therefore what we accept and support is carefully engineered to be consistent with the goals of those who wish us to remain ignorant and compliant.
From this perspective everything is black and white, dollars and cents and very little of it represent facts or reality. The formula is simple. Perpetuate a sense of fear, with the promise of protection, add economic struggle so we don’t have time think, and add just a dash of hope. This is how 85 people become richer than the lower 3.5 billion people.
Wars in perpetuity, economic crisis to economic crisis, and all the time someone is profiting handsomely from the waves of fear and frenzy. Everything is reduced to cash flow. The cost of the wars, national defense, social security or why we can’t have it. Everything is profit based, including health care, education, and incarceration.
Laws are made by heavily influenced stooges paid for by major corporations, with the “little people” be damned. This model has worked very effectively for the last three hundred years at least.
What happens, however, if we suddenly do the math and discover these few have enslaved us without our consent? What happens if we truly begin to think for ourselves? What would the “facts” be then. What if we asked and got the real answers to those questions that don’t seem to want to fade into the past.
Questions like why was JFK really killed and who was responsible for his death? Why did Building 7 collapse on 9/11 and who really did this horrible deed and why? Why did we really invade Iraq and Afghanistan? Why haven’t any major bankers gone to jail for the crimes that caused the economic collapse in 2008 and why have so many recently committed “suicide”? Why does our governments treat the seemingly logical question of are we alone in the universe or do we have visitors from other civilizations as such taboo and seem to go to extreme lengths to discredit or deny facts that seem to support that notion? Why have so many technologies been suppressed?
Alternative media and social networking has contributed to a number of people waking up, but the fact is there is still a lot of induced ignorance prevailing in our society. In fact, against all odds of science and evolution, intelligence is actually contracting and certainly education is going in the wrong direction.
We must begin to afford ourselves dignity and respect. Instead of pledging allegiance to some ideology or political party, let’s pledge allegiance to the Earth and all the people in it. Instead of promoting the virtue of some religion or arcane ideology, let’s emphasize individuality, diversity, and innovation.
Instead of chasing the almighty dollar and judging others by how stuff they have, let’s visual a resource based economy where all goods and services are available to everyone without the use of money, barter, credit, debit, or servitude of any kind. Sound crazy? Maybe, though, it is just a matter of perspective.
