So do you believe every word that is spoken or printed on Main Stream Media is absolute infallible Gospel Truth? — How about the Internet? — How about what you hear down at the tavern, the saloon or the bar …. over the back fence …. by the water cooler at work?
In today’s confused world how it is it possible to ever know whether or not you are being told the truth about anything or whether everything you hear or read is a lie designed to accommodate one agenda or another?
There is always instinct! — Instinct (That gnawing gut feeling) is usually a far more reliable barometer of what is true and what is not than the so-called “Facts” that somebody throws in your face on a daily basis.
Humans have something called “The instinct for survival” and this is probably protective enough that it will signal you when you hear or read something that can work against your best interests. Therefore I believe that your “Hunches” are reliable indicators of what is real and what is bullshit … more so than the printed or broadcast word.
Does what you are hearing or reading pass the smell test?
Usually if it appears to you top have a rancid odor, a spoiled odor or the odor of shit, then I think you can trust what you are smelling — most of the time.
One of the problems with discerning fact and fiction lies in the fact that as human beings we more or less tend to invent our perceptions of the world that surrounds us.
The danger in that fact is that there are other people living in our world who know that we tend to invent our perceptions and they work very hard to create pretty little pictures for us in an attempt to change our perceptions so that they can gain some kind of control over us or profit from us in the process.
Government tends to act that way with something traditionally known as propaganda and as the MSM grows closer alliances to government and to institutions designed to suck great amounts of money from the gullibility of an audience the propaganda presented to us on a daily basis becomes louder and more creative and imaginative all the time.
One of the greatest lies being presented as truth these days is something relatively new — something that has appeared only relatively recently — something labeled as “Political Correctness.”
“Political Correctness” is the set of lies designed to make us believe that the words we have always used to describe things are either improper or can be shifted to mean something else entirely than what the dictionary and the thesaurus have always represented them to mean.
Political Correctness (PC) then becomes …. in all reality … the mechanism by which someone with an agenda can recreate reality for those who embrace it and change the entire perspective of somebody’s world view. PC is very subtle and crafty … the creation of a dark underbelly of something malignant … something that wants to get us all tender enough to devour … to destroy … to enslave.
PC is the hissing of the serpent in the Garden of Eden … the serpent dressed in new shoes, shirt and tie … but the same old serpent nonetheless.
PC wants to create for us the illusion that we are forever and always safe from the terrorists’ butcher knife by trying to convince us that there is no evil to be found in the ideology that traditionally spawns terrorist activities.
That is just one example of the deception…. There are many more examples.
Can you name a few more examples of how the PC lie can lead a nation astray?
Can you name more examples of where something we have been told for years and years might turn out in the end to be something else entirely besides what we have been led to believe?
