As you've noticed, nothing makes sense. Directly contradictory information is being delivered to your mind's mailbox everyday, along with a lot of fear-mongering.
As the Invisible Critic shared in his wonderful rant, "Bogey-Man", these propaganda agents are in the business of scaring--- you.
Let's take a little stroll down Memory Lane, as he did, and think about all the Bogey Men we've been sold over the years, beginning in 1898 with the Spanish American War, and more or less in order --- The Bogey Man List:
Huns (in general)
Nazis (in particular)
OPEC - fuel shortages
Hole in the Ozone Layer
The American Militias
The Iron Curtain
Cancer, Cancer, Cancer!
Eggs - Salmonella
Energy Crisis (again)
Isis (Johnny in Drag)
Weapons of Mass Destruction
Gaddafi - Libya
Osama Bin Laden
Bashir in Syria
John Birch Society
Kim Jong Un - North Korea
Global Warming (Again)
New Madrid Fault Rupture
H1N1 Swine Flu
Death of the Dollar
Las Palmas Volcano Tsunami
Now that you see it laid out like this, isn't it apparent that they are playing to the crowd? There are even apparent groupings of Bogey-Man subject matter. We've got nuclear everything, bugs of all kinds, climate variations of all kinds --cold and hot, anyone who doesn't agree with "our" status quo, scientific quackery, natural disasters, and all sorts of uncertainties and unknowns.
All these things captured our "national attention" and inspired no end of craziness, from backyard bomb shelters to fad diets. Sadly, these propaganda campaigns have generated more than fear and Silly Chicken reactions.
They've been used to demonize and label innocent people.
They've been used to justify genocide.
They've been used to promote political agendas, economic collapses, pandemics and wars, wars, wars.
We've been played like guitars.
Fear of this, that, and the other thing, has been engendered deliberately and used like a goad to drive public opinion (and spending) hither, thither, and yon. Most of the Bogeys function like a half-truth.
There is certainly good, solid, scientific reason to be concerned about air pollution, for example, but that valid concern doesn't justify worldwide "climate taxes" administered under the Law of the Spanish Inquisition, does it?
If we let the Liars have their way, we'd soon be paying for "Cow Emissions" and considering how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
People do queer things when they are scared. They accept things that they would otherwise never accept. They commit shameful acts of violence and oppression that they would otherwise never commit. So fear is a great tool for manipulating people, especially when you want them to do things that are unreasonable and unjust.
Fear is not your friend. Fear is not part of your higher calling.
This underlines my findings about the Mainstream Media thirty-plus years ago, when I analyzed their news stories for a couple weeks back in 1987 and confirmed that they were feeding me a steady diet of adrenalin-pumping Sex and/or Death stories, most of which I could do nothing about and could take no useful action against.
So? I was being played, left simmering in my own little pot of adrenal exhaustion for no good reason. All the Evening News was doing for me was titillating my adrenalin response, making it hard to sleep, and making me feel hungry and horney and helpless.
Worst of all, it was distorting my "plane of reference" --- my focus, away from my life, my home, my family, my community, and, yes, my world.
It was creating a frightening unreal dystopian world of violence and uncertainty and fear ---invoked in my mind --- using anecdotal scraps of information culled from all the bad things that sometimes happen, all over the world.
To make it all worse, because the adrenalin rush is pleasurable, I was unconsciously addicted to this madness. Like millions of other Americans, I was lining up like a cow to be milked every night at six o'clock, listening to Walter Cronkite or one of his heirs.
But that ended for me in 1987. I quit. Cold turkey.
People often ask me, "What's the first step?"
The first step is to disconnect from their ugly Mind Map. Let your own mind come back home and deal with your actual life and the world you are living in right now. Turn the knob. Click the switch. Mainstream Media --ditch, ditch, ditch!
Do what I did, and say ---wait a minute! This is my mind! I get to create my world and dictate my concerns! And I don't like weird, off color, dystopian melodramas! Bah! Pffttth! Enough of this nastiness!
Before you know it, you will recognize your world again, and it will again make sense.
