Societal Distractions--How Blocked are You from Knowing the Truths

Updated: Nov 17, 2019

Whether we are aware or not, we are systematically distracted from knowing the truths and, hence, our ability to create a reality based on truths is impeded. Why is this the case?


The reason is that a person usually sees his or her reality through the filter presented by the systems of society. All the major news networks and print outlets report a story identically, even down to some of the people they interview and the words they use in describing the story. How and why does this happen? We seem to have a financial downturn or economic meltdown on average about every seven years. Who makes this happen? There is always some leader in the world that we are unhappy with and decide to do something about it militarily. Who benefits from war? Facebook has a market capitalization far greater than General Motors, Kellogg, and even at one time ExxonMobil. How does this happen when Facebook doesn’t sell a tangible product? Politicians don’t tell the truth. Yet, why in our society is this even acceptable? We increasingly just shrug our shoulders and carry on—politicians who don’t work on behalf of the people are not only tolerated but expected as if there were no other way to do things. All of this can happen without repercussions, because we are conditioned to believe that it is normal or we accept it happening because the end justifies the means.


We seem to have a huge divide in our society, whether with politics, liberal versus conservative, or with topics such as climate change, sanctuary cities, nationalism versus globalism, or you name it. We are constantly distracted from realizing that all is not as we perceive it to be or as presented. We must realize that reality is a psychological operation. At the most primitive level, reality basically means some group has force, money, and access to be able to disseminate information and influence perceptions, even to the point that people are conditioned to accept lies as truths and to not even consider hard facts to the contrary. Often, questioning the story line is seen as offensive, and those who do the questioning may be ridiculed or demonized. People are conditioned to want one sound bite—simple, smooth, and with no fractures. So, that’s what the mind-control-engineers give them. The managers of society define what exists, and woe to anyone who dares to assess things critically.

How do we defeat these systems of society and their distractions? How do we get to a point in time when we are better able to discern the truths from the illusions? Is this even realistic? To make strides forward, we must realize that we need to use our imagination more widely and to consider possibilities beyond what we are told, regardless of how “out there” they may seem. For many, the imagination has been sucked out of us by the systems of society and how they have conditioned us to think and what to believe. If we just adopt the perception that the reality in front of us is a mere microcosm of possibilities, that would be a good place to start. That’s how we can begin to understand what really exists.
