~ At coffee recently I couldn’t help but overhear a rather loud argument two middle aged dudes were having nearby. The one dude was trying to convince the other that the President of the United States is the best the country has ever had, and the other dude was trying to argue the contrary. What struck me as rather typical is the fact that both of the guys were using the same old rhetoric that we’ve all heard a million times.
Whether you live in Great Britain, Australia, or the United States; arguments, discussions and conversation throughout much of the world tends to be the same old rehearsed topics and issues we’ve heard adnauseum our entire lives. Originality in thought and conversation is grossly lacking throughout the Western World.
Much of this stale manner of thinking and conversation is connected to the stark reality that everyone is being told what to think; no matter what political, religious, scientific or atheistic perspective you come from you have been massively influenced by invisible people who govern the thoughts and perspectives of people throughout the world.
Of course, some of the beliefs you hold dear may indeed be good things to believe; murder is bad, don’t drink bleach or detergent, and never light a fart on fire in a crowded room. Yet the simple fact of the matter is that the overwhelming majority of thoughts that pass through your mind and behaviors you engage in have all been heavily influenced by the calculated efforts of invisible people that you’ve never met.
“But Kenneth, what are you talking about; we all have free will and each of us choose for ourselves how to behave and what to think…..don’t we?”
Not necessarily, and if you believe that; then the invisible people are clearly accomplishing what they set out to accomplish.
Who are these invisible people you ask; aliens? Ghosts? Poltergeist? Gods?
Come back tomorrow for part two of this week’s five part series, “You’re being told what to think” for now, I need to finish my coffee,
