The most important question that needs to be asked today: Is your opinion yours?
The answer most likely is NO. Your opinion has been fabricated by the news agencies that you watch, the social media you consume and the vile politician’s that spew the hate that you like.
News, social media and politicians have created your opinion. The three have filled your head with versions of reality that you believe to be fact. You in turn are in a continual argument with the outside world. Your mind has been weaponized
So, what can you do to fix this problem?
#1, Stop watching all “main stream news”. i.e. Fox News Corp, CNN, BBC, MSNBC ect. Let me explain why these institutions are all trash. First, these “news” agencies are advertising agencies. THAT’S ALL. Their entire business model is to sell advertising. This is their ONLY source of income. The more you watch, the more ad’s they sell, the more money they make. That’s their only purpose as a business. To them, there is nothing better than bad news! Second, news reporters are jacks of all trades. They may have the ability to write in a compelling manor, but they are NOT professionals on any one subject other than being able to write with descriptive words. The stories they write vary from article to article, little effort goes into researching details, they always site “unknown sources” and only print most explosive components. Once the article has been released, they are onto the next subject. They are NOT professionals in any of the subjects they write about.
Instead, you should pick a subject that you are most interested in and then seek out professionals in that field. If your obsessed with a subject, get off your ass and learn about it. You don’t need to speak with an academic at a major institution for answers, because most of the time these people need to rely on the man/woman in the field. Instead, you should seek out the professional in the field.
Example: If your want to know if climate change is real, seek out old men that have been farming for 60+ years or professionals in the natural seed harvesting industry, or meteorologists who actually model weather patterns and have access to data going back hundreds of years or forestry management personnel that have been on the job in the forest for the last 50 years. These people will have far more insight into the subject than any person behind a desk writing for the New York Times.
#2, do not accept social media as fact. Facebook feeds, Twitter feeds and YouTube algorithms are feeding you bullshit for the sole purpose of keeping your eyes on the screen and selling you ad’s PERIOD. Just like Fox News Corp and CNN, the only source of revenue from social media is through ads. These companies are being exposed for the damage they are doing to society by scumbags like Mark Zuckerberg for the sole purpose of making himself rich. TURN IT OFF! Every single person I speak too about Facebook tells me the same line. “I only go on Facebook to keep up with friends, I never get my news from them”. BULLSHIT! You have had a Facebook Lobotomy. Every single person I know that uses Facebook stands out of the crowd like a sore thumb. Their antidotes are always wilder, their stories are more fantastic and they always have to one up the conversation with some completely insane fact that, to everyone else in the room, is utter stupidity. A Facebook user looks and sounds like fools in a room full of non-Facebook users. The contrast is obvious. DON’T BE THAT IDIOT!
#3, Anyone who is standing up to argue on behalf of any politician are total morons! Since the dawn of time, it has been common knowledge that politicians, lawyers and used anything salesmen are the least trustworthy people on the planet. Arguing with your friends and family, on their behalf is the single dumbest thing you can do. YOU DO NOT KNOW THIS PERSON AND THEY DO NOT KNOW YOU! Arguing for them with people you actually know is pure and utter ignorance. Just imagine getting into a war of words with your friends and family to defend a used car salesman from the dirty little car lot in your home town. His cars are clapped out, 300,000 mile engine knockers, but there you are, getting in your brothers face to tell him ol’ Elmer down at the used car lot is worth dying for. Politician’s regardless of side are getting rich from making dirty, back door deals that benefit themselves and the corporations they are screwing us all over for. Both sides are garbage, fighting with everyone around you is ruining everyone’s lives. VOTE AND SHUT UP! More importantly, while all of society fights in the street on behalf of these politicians, they are successfully running away with the world. YOU ARE HELPING WITH THAT! Vote, go about your business and show respect to others.
It is time to regain your opinion through actual life experience, engaging with other human beings in a respectful manor and turning off the screen poisoning your mind.
