“The mainstream mentality is obviously a breeding ground of propaganda, deceit and outright violence, which reflects why droves of sheep are jumping the fences and exploring the self-uncharted lands of independent thought and practice. This is no surprise when the masses have been very successfully dumbed into a philosophically separate and behaviourally shallow engagement with the reverence of life. They distractingly fight amongst each other in both status and ideology, with the most powerful one currently being the sex (not gender) wars. However, the infighting and grandstanding is not just limited to the primary herd; unfortunately those who are exploring the wilderness are also subjecting themselves to the whims of central control.
2017 and the beginning of 2018 has stunningly illustrated how far so-called self-thinkers have fallen victim to the divide and conquer strategy… The popular meme that suggests that the best slaves are ones who think they’re free can therefore be expanded: the best slaves are ones who think they used to be slaves but now believe they’re free.
What was originally a predominately organic response to authoritarianism and centralisation has sadly devolved into a self-contradictory state of affairs where the alternative media and their regurgitators have locked themselves into a dogmatic war for the dominion of who is right. That’s not to say that we shouldn’t be trying to find the answers to significant questions, but when hearsay and confirmation bias is at such unprecedented levels it’s a clear indication that we need to enact a different strategy…
The simple solution is for each of us to acknowledge that we’re definitely wrong about some of our suspicions, so it’s important to change our language to honour that understanding and transmute it into wisdom. As a basic example, instead of, “this is right and anyone who believes differently is fooling themselves (and an x, y and z!)” – with a simple twist to, “based on my research this appears to be right” – we now have a more inclusive and intelligent dialectic and platform for debate.
It’s seems so simple doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it is…
You know you don’t know all the answers, as does your so-called competitor, so let’s start acting like it. Some of your material and metaphysical speculations might be right, but many probably aren’t. Even if what you believe turns out to be mostly correct, if you spent the majority of your time lost in the competition of which sheep thinks they know the shepherd best, then you have wasted a grand opportunity to actually become wild.”
Perhaps, people do not truly want to be free. Taking responsibility for one’s self is more challenging than simply being a follower.
This constant fighting among ourselves helps deflect scrutiny away from our masters, the manipulators. This divide and conquer strategy has helped those behind the scenes to pull all our strings for far too long.
