THE 3 TRIGGER TERMS BEING USED TO STOP CRITICAL THINKING

https://www.wakingtimes.com/2018/08/16/the-3-trigger-terms-being-used-to-stop-critical-thinking/

“It’s a strange world of newspeak we live in. What was once a society devoted to logic and progress is now being herded in echo chambers of thought control and anti-critical thinking. Without the ability to examine an issue impartially and completely there is little hope of maintaining liberty and freedom, as history repeatedly demonstrated.

Today, we find that thinking is a diminishing art, and in its place, sound bites and stop-thought terms are used to put the brakes on the mind. These terms are widely used as signals to prevent minds from looking too deeply at a topic or issue…

1.) Conspiracy Theorist – This term is so overused that it really is devoid of any practical meaning. If you were to examine it at face value, though, it describes a person who is looking to understand injustices in our world and is willing to look at uncomfortable facts in search of negative influence…

However, ‘conspiracy theorist’ has literally become a derogatory term that is attributed to anyone who refuses to accept mainstream narratives at face value. It doesn’t matter that there is overwhelming evidence to indicate that mainstream media does not value objectivity or report on important issues thoroughly or truthfully…

2.) Alt – We see the label ‘alt’ being applied more and more frequently as an adjective for sentiments that supposedly do not fit in with the accepted status quo. Ideas outside of the box.  Alt-Media. Alt-Right. Alt-Left. Alt-News. Alt-Health. And so on.

The signal here is that the mainstream is the safe space, and that any segment of ideas or thought given this prefix is outside of that mainstream, and therefore not something ordinary people would want to associate with. It takes complex ideas and sensitive issues and benches them, so that when the hive mind stumbles upon something ‘alt’ they immediately react with fear, disdain and feigned outrage…

3.) Hate Speech – This term is one of the all-time favorites of politicians and tyrants…

Newsflash: Hate speech is not the same thing as a hate crime. Speech is just that, speech. It is literally vibrating air moving through space, and unless we’re talking about and LRAD crowd control cannon, sound really can’t cause people physical harm.

It is fascinating to watch how people use this term so freely as if speech itself can be criminal. American society is founded on the idea of freedom of speech and self-expression, which at its core is the recognition that as human beings we do not and never will all see the world in the same way…

Next time you see or hear these terms being used, ask yourself what it is about the story that you’re not supposed to think too deeply about. Allow both sides of the argument to share equal time in your mind, and honor the independent, sovereign being within yourself that deserves a chance to make up its own mind about how it wishes to view the world.”

GEORGE ORWELL WARNED US OF THE MOST DANGEROUS TYPE OF CENSORSHIP

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/george-orwell-warned-us-of-the-most-dangerous-type-of-censorship_082018

“The big tech companies are now openly censoring popular viewpoints and deleting select social media pages who supposedly ‘violate community guidelines.’ There is, of course, never a detailed explanation of why companies like You Tube and Facebook delete user generated pages (our You Tube page was deleted in 2017 for no apparent reason and our Facebook page has been throttled down to almost no reach), and there is never a reasonable way to appeal for the reinstitution of these pages.

The end result of this type of censorship, however, quite likely will not bring about the feared Soviet style clampdown on ideas that challenge the establishment. It’s more reasonable to expect that these companies have fallen pray to monopolistic hubris and will soon see massive declines in viewership, collapsing stock prices and the revolt of angry shareholders

That said, the current social/political/media climate in America today is likely to bring about the rise of a far more insidious and dangerous type of censorship: self-censorship… [which] is voluntarily silencing one’s self out of fear of inoffical reprisal. That reprisal can come in many forms, soft and hard, but at it’s most fundamental level it involves the fear of what others will think of you or say to you if they don’t like what they hear.

This form of censorship is already taking hold and is the result of the fear that individuals have of upsetting the mobs and virtue signaling hordes of self-righteous personalities. It is the fear that anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion and political correctness…

When speaking on the importance of press freedom, American writer E. B. White spoke of the cultural importance of having many independent viewpoints and fearless news organizations professing a wide range of ideas:

“The press in our free country is reliable and useful not because of its good character but because of its great diversity. As long as there are many owners, each pursuing his own brand of truth, we the people have the opportunity to arrive at the truth and to dwell in the light. The multiplicity of ownership is crucial. It’s only when there are a few owners, or, as in a government-controlled press, one owner, that the truth becomes elusive and the light fails. For a citizen in our free society, it is an enormous privilege and a wonderful protection to have access to hundreds of periodicals, each peddling its own belief. There is safety in numbers: the papers expose each other’s follies and peccadillos, correct each other’s mistakes, and cancel out each other’s biases. The reader is free to range around in the whole editorial bouillabaisse and explore it for the one clam that matters—the truth.”

Are You Fluoridated?

https://wakeup-world.com/2018/07/17/are-you-fluoridated/

“What if I told you that your drinking water, and everything made from it – drinks to soups – was poisoned? What if I then told you that this poison was being presented as a health-giving intervention, presumed to be in your best interest? You might wonder how such a reality could have ever taken hold…

Fluoride is out of an era when “valium” was prescribed to housewives, feet were x-rayed for shoe size, cigarettes were harmless, and nuclear testing was exciting to watch. We knew less and understood the world differently.

Despite superficial claims to aid in tooth decay prevention, internal documents reveal that fluoride was a fertilizer industry byproduct that found a home in municipal water “treatment.” …

Concerningly, longitudinal data implicates fluoride’s effects on brain function as measured by IQ. Perhaps this is an unintended consequence? Perhaps it has served as a fringe benefit to keep the populace subdued in this way? Graham Hancock might agree…

It’s time we look at the fact that we are being dosed with a chemical, in an unmonitored and unstudied way, without our consent…

While it is likely that policy will be forced to submit to the growing wave of science implicating fluoride as a brain and body poison without a known biochemical profile in any given individual’s physiology, what to do in the meantime?

Share this post, raise awarenessfilter your water, and find a biological dentist.”

The War on Consciousness – Graham Hancock

https://grahamhancock.com/

“What is death? Our materialist science reduces everything to matter. Materialist science in the West says that we are just meat, we’re just our bodies. So when the brain is dead, that’s the end of consciousness, there is no life after death, there is no soul; we just rot and are gone. Actually, many honest scientists should admit that consciousness is the greatest mystery of science and that we don’t know exactly how it works. The brain is involved in it some way but we’re not sure how. It could be that the brain generates consciousness the way a generator makes electricity, if you hold to that paradigm, then of course you can’t believe in life after death, when the generator’s broken, consciousness is gone. But it’s equally possible that the relationship — and nothing in neuroscience rules it out – that the relationship is more like the relationship of the TV signal to the TV set, and in that case, when the TV set is broken, of course the TV signal continues. And this is the paradigm of all spiritual traditions, that we are immortal souls temporarily incarnated in these physical forms to learn and to grow and to develop

If we want to know about this mystery, the last people we should ask are materialist reductionist scientists… Let’s go, rather, to the ancient Egyptians who put their best minds to work for 3,000 years on the problem of death, and on the problem of how we should live our lives to prepare for what we will confront after death… They came to certain, very specific conclusions that the soul does survive death and that we will be held accountable for every thought, every action, every deed that we have lived through in our lives, so we better take this precious opportunity to be born in a human body seriously and make the most of it…

There is a war on consciousness in our society, and if we as adults are not allowed to make sovereign decisions about what to experience with our own consciousness while doing no harm to others, including the decision to use responsibly ancient and sacred visionary plants, then we cannot claim to be free in any way.” ~Graham Hancock

Neil Kramer : Why Empire Hates Guns

http://neilkramer.com/why-empire-hates-guns/

“The text of the Second Amendment is very clear: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

To erode the Second Amendment is to destabilize the entire Bill Of Rights. No Second Amendment, no First Amendment. No First Amendment, no freedom. That is precisely what empire wants: an uncodified constitution where freedom is arbitrarily granted as a privilege, not embodied as a natural right…

Empire knows that disarmament breeds dependency, both physically and psychologically. “Gun violence” and “gun control” are control words for disarmament. Gun violence does not exist. Guns cannot kill people. People kill people. Registration, gun-free zones, limiting magazine capacities, banning semi-auto sporting rifles – these all represent pathways to reduction and confiscation, should a nefarious government feel so inclined. None of these things prevent bad people from killing good people with guns. On the contrary, they advantage criminals and put innocent people at risk.

Empire hates citizens having the power to defend and protect themselves. It has worked very hard to condition the population into disarming itself by repeatedly suggesting that guns are inherently bad, have no place in the everyday life of civilized human beings, and are thus best restricted to use by specially trained and approved authorities. Regular people should not have them. The dream is for guns to be removed from circulation altogether and erased from the public consciousness, like in England, where violent crime rates are nonetheless somewhere between 6 to 10 times higher than the United States. Less shootings, but massively more criminality and violence, which is hard to defend against, physically and legally. No right to bear arms. No positive right to free speech. A wholly uncodified constitution. Dependency achieved.

When world society is principled, educated, noble, and greatly distinguished by its intellectual and emotional maturity, there will be little necessity for guns, other than for sporting and historical purposes. Those who believe we are anywhere close to that, should immediately check themselves into the nearest loony bin. You’ve been duped. The perception that we have already somehow achieved reasonable standards of cultural sophistication and international democracy, is a total fiction… It will take many generations before integrity, excellence, and personal responsibility are innate to society at large…

[I]f you are a good-hearted US citizen who has ever contemplated exercising your right to bear arms, now is a good time. Empower yourself, find wise tutelage, defend life and liberty, be an asset to your community and nation, and seriously piss off empire in the process.” ~Neil Kramer

The 2nd Amendment Really is an Essential Safeguard Against Crime and Tyranny

https://fee.org/articles/the-2nd-amendment-really-is-an-essential-safeguard-against-crime-and-tyranny/

“America has been a free and prosperous land precisely because of the fact that as a nation we have chosen to follow political and economic avenues different from those followed by other countries around the world.

As a people, we have swum against the tide of collectivism, socialism, and welfare statism to a greater degree, for the most part, than have our western European cousins. As a result, in many areas of life, we have remained freer, especially in our market activities, than they. The fact that other peoples in other lands chose to follow foolish paths leading to disastrous outcomes does not mean that we should follow in their footsteps.

America was born in revolt against the ideas of the “old world”: the politics of monarchy, the economics of mercantilism, and the culture of hereditary class and caste. America heralded the politics of representative, constitutional government, the economics of the free market, and the culture of individualism under equality before the law. It made America great.

If in more recent times there has been an “American disease,” it has been our all-too-willing receptivity to the European virus of political paternalism, welfare redistribution, economic regulation and planning, and the passive acceptance of government control over social affairs.

We need not and indeed should not fall victim to one more of the European ailments: the disarming of the people under the dangerous notion that the private citizenry cannot be trusted and should not be allowed to have the means of self-defense against potential private and political aggressors in society. Let us stand apart once more and not fall prey to the false idea that somehow our European cousins are more enlightened or advanced than we on the matters of gun ownership and control. They are not.”

ILLITERACY LEADS TO CENSORSHIP

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2018/03/07/illiteracy-leads-censorship/

Illiterate people are easy to convince that repressive censorship isn’t a problem… If you don’t have “the right ideas,” you should be censored… Illiteracy is more effective than political correctness.

Untold numbers of people can’t understand the sentences that are floating and flying by them every day. They register this by building up anger. Unfocused anger. They are perfect fodder for know-nothing social and political movements that requite violence and repression… Along the way, censorship becomes a very good thing. They were limited in what they learned; therefore, limit everyone else…

There is a sub-text percolating in many, many schools: “All right, you students, this is your education. We’re going to keep you from learning the language. We’re going to hold it back from you. At the same time, we’re going to praise you and push you ahead from grade to grade… You’ll take a ride through school, and then we’ll dump you out into the world. We’re making rebels wholesale. Ignorant rebels. Rebels without the tools for THINKING. You’ll have to find a place where thinking isn’t important. Good luck. Here’s a suggestion. Find a group where all you have to do is yell and throw rocks. Learn what to yell. Demand your right to get EVERYTHING FOR NOTHING…

The declining system of education creates a vacuum. And into that vacuum, writers who do value language step forward, and they do present actual ideas. This is a large vacuum, so it can accommodate many writers. They are creating new realities. And readers show up… These writers and readers are the “replacement team.” They are standing in for the colleges and universities and the sloganeers. They are not censoring themselves or anyone else. They are proliferating language, not reducing it.”
