Thought I'd share an article that I got halfway through before getting sick to my stomach. This is what's wrong with the world; parasites that bank on the suffering and qualms of the masses, clickbait engineers that hook, line and sinker the populous into false truths for the sake of their own inner turmoils. Quoting one in saying, “You have to trick people into reading the news.” By taking advantage of the folly of your fellow human you create an adverse timeline for them to exist in while they are already distraught with their current worldviews.
As a writer I am displeased by the amount of hate, falsity and monetized rhetoric being spewed across the net, through Fbook (which I have unfortunately become victim of for news and entertainment sources), and expressed by friends and acquaintances in my personal spheres.
One of my favourite JFK speeches entitled, "The President and the Press," ends with the quote,
"And so it is to the printing press--to the recorder of man's deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news--that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent."
"Free and independent" has become bastardized and perverted in our digital enriched age of technology. Those seeking a vocal outlet against the society and governments meant to protect them have been hurt and suffer with a range of emotion that cannot be properly processed or contained, they internally revolt and must vomit out some form of expression that equals the shit they have been fed. There must be an equilibrium, and after years of being fed the same lies, fear mongering and abuse, the people are exhausted, angry and fragile; susceptible to any two-bit writer or news feed that exposes a "truth" that rivals the mainstream media corporatocracy.
I too feel enraged, and just as anyone want to open up my window, and scream, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!!" Which I should, which all of you should, it's our right, it's the least we can do without our heads imploding with fury, but we must hold temperance. We must realize that the fight is not external, but internal, our truths are held within. We have become so detached from Source and our natural organic way of living that we have become zombified to clickbait flashy headlines and compelling photos on our black mirror data centers we clutch close 24/7, which then fuels our aggression centers and riles us up to the point of emotional expression without filter. Be patient dear ones, we have more power than we know, and the time has come for us to express our own truths, our own stories, our own realities.
Look not to the man on the television screen with the suit and the tie telling you how to live, live. Connect with others that share common interests, like minds that devote themselves to ideals that engender the right timeline you want to exist in. You are all co-creators in a world without limitations. We can soar higher than anyone has every dreamt possible for us because we are the sowers of our own journeys, designers of our own destiny.
I look forward to the brilliant stories of truth not expressed on a website factioned by the fears and insecurities of the masses. We are a collective rich with life, fertile with ideas and ingenuity to sustain a New Golden Age of adventure, resilience and strength. If you have read this far I applaud you, I know it is not a quick snappy read to add to the multitude of data and information you intake every social media enriched millisecond, but I thank you for your time, for proving that we are more than two guys in an apartment making up news to subvert the system.
In return I invite you all to join me on a new adventure that houses YOUR personality, YOUR skills, YOUR stories. In the new year I will be launching a new website called #Quite, a collective network based on truth, humanity, and sophistication of the human spirit. Stay tuned as I would love you all to contribute, add, and connect to a platform free of hate speech, fear mongering, and social manipulation. Wherein together we can reevaluate what it means to be free and independent.
