I believe our Government and many others around the world to be dumbing down much of its population, having us too busy, tired and stressed to stop and think. Many of us are quite simply worn out and worn down. So much of our time and thoughts are given to managing our lives, that we literally have very little brain space left to think about much else.
We are shackled to the mundane, worrying constantly about putting food on the table, paying all our bills and looking after our children. Working hard from dawn till dusk. Juggling money and bills, trying to keep our heads above water, hoping nothing breaks down so we don’t sink under the pressure. Kids are struggling at their new school, are we doing the right thing for them, we have no family support here, should we stay or should we move? Worries at work. Three broken teeth, can’t go to the dentist or no one will eat for a month. Can we afford a load of wood, it’s getting cold, where will that money come from? Sitting in the dark at night, hot water off, all so we can afford the power bill when it comes. Rotten window needs replacing, water tank is leaking, stove is dead, on and on it goes. My mind is a spaghetti junction of thoughts constantly whirring round and round, just like many other people, it’s exhausting. It leaves little or no time or space to consider life outside the four walls of home and work.
I sit down at 6pm to catch up on the “news”. This biased media would have us believe that all is rosy in the world. Releasing only the information that fits their agenda. Once upon a time I believed it too. The statistics and information they use are always biased, if it wasn’t for me taking the time to research for myself, I wouldn’t know any better. Main Stream Media bombards us with one sided details and quite often fails to report at all. So us, in our befuddled brains just suck that in and take it as truth. It is only when you dig deeper that you realise most of it is rubbish and what they are really doing is hiding the truth, keeping us dumbed down on purpose. Well not me, not any more. I am awake now, regardless of our stresses, I endeavour to inform myself, and can I suggest you all should do the same.
Governments and Main Stream Media are lying to us. They are keeping the truth hidden, presenting stories in a way that hides certain aspects of it from us. Spin and fudging figures are high on their agenda. It is time it stopped and the truth be known. For the sake of our children, and their children, before it is too late, we really do have to wake up. For that is all part of the plan, to keep you busy and exhausted so you tow the line, keep the peace, don’t fight back. Just follow along like the good citizens we are. Take a good look at the bigger picture, and have a think for yourself, you will be surprised at what you might find, I know I was. And finally, we need to remember that our ignorance is their power.
