I hear lots of people in our modern society tout that they are open minded and objective. Even being so enlightened above all others in their respective ideology, they turn in to raging morons when you even mention an opposing ideology. Is this derangement a learned process in the conforming indoctrination centers known as colleges and universities or something in the water supply? I see and hear rhetoric and propaganda from left and right daily and can easily recognize it.
I can also see where some conservative views and some progressive views would complement each other. So why can’t these ideologues see clear thru the miasma of propaganda? Why are we, as a society, so blind to the obvious control from the elites, the bourgeois, and the fat cats on Wall Street? I constantly hear about the evil Koch brothers and the evil tea party republican swine taking over.
Yet from what I recall, the Koch brothers were supporting a Clinton and supporting the DLC with donations, just in a game with fellow elitist Warren Buffett who in turn retaliates. This is old information that is readily available on the net. A prime example of how the 1% easily manipulates the zombie masses like pawns in a chess match. So why do we carry on and chant slogans for our teams so vehemently?
They aren’t our teams obviously. Maybe there is some truth to our society devolving intellectually. Or could it be those indoctrination centers known as public schools and colleges and universities that we go hundreds of thousands in debt to attend, to not get a job in our chosen specialized field? Divide and conquer seems to work very well indeed.
So knowledge is supposed to be power… why aren’t we seeking it? I have never been a conformist. Not even when I poverty drafted myself into the Navy. I’ve never fit in to a group or cast nor do I want to. I’d rather maintain my strength in individuality and seek the knowledge necessary to ensure a better future for my children. I seek to question opposing views to learn new strengths thru debate and new ideas.
Maybe that’s why I can see thru this theater of the ideological dysfunctional. And believe me, there is a wide spectrum of dysfunction in action.
This is just my opinion based on facts and speculation. If you have a question or comment, please say it. If you want to tell me why I’m wrong than please enlighten me. I’m not one to be afraid of debate.
