Acknowledging the fact that what you are reading, and in a new wrinkle, seeing with your own eyes, is being manipulated in order to propagandize the public, is a good start to remaining sane in an ever more increasingly insane world.
It's not just the MSM news that is lefty propaganda, but it is also the "entertainment" on TV, and the sludge coming out of Hollywood. When people indulge in entertainment that promotes homosexuality, adultery, and a plethora of other sexual sins, they are being propagandized.
Bernie Suarez has an interesting and valuable article posted at the Sleuth Journal, From Normal To Insane: The Journey Ahead For Mainstream Media Believers
Some pertinent parts:
[...]Acknowledging that change is inevitable is a great starting point for facing a paradigm shift as immense as the one we are facing right now. It’s the beginning of clearing the lies you’ve been conditioned to believe and to finding out your purpose in our battle for freedom, sanity, human compassion, ethics, and human dignity. The process goes something like this: First you acknowledge change, then you take a chance and do your own sincere research and question all the lies they tell you, then you see the truth, then you choose to defend all of the inalienable rights we were all born with that no one can ever take away. When the process is through you’ll understand exactly why the government, mainstream media and Hollywood all act as one for the same purpose and why and how we’ve arrived at a point where freedom is slavery and slavery is freedom.
[...]A person can be lied to so often as to be made temporarily dysfunctional to his/her own species. This loss of functionality is already being manifested in many dumbed-down mainstream media and TV watching zombies. This loss of functionality is observable and provable in our current day and age. No one expects those suffering from this loss of cognitive, human and moral functionality to accept this verdict and observation without a protest. People don’t consider themselves mentally handicapped just for believing mainstream media news; that observation and acknowledgment comes with the awakening that many of us have already experienced.
[...]So as people wake up to the global government agenda the globalist monkeys are moving forward with, let us keep in mind the slippery slope mainstream media believers find themselves in. Realize that they are temporarily (mentally) protected by a wall of mass propaganda being constantly delivered to them via TV, cinema, billboards, magazines and other avenues. This railroad of entertainment, media and constant distraction is essentially protecting (or delaying) their insanity from being directly exposed. It is still easy for a mainstream media believer to look around and perceive that their perceptions are normal. Exposing this process of ‘perception of the perception’ is a sizable part of the current paradigm shift which incidentally Hollywood and the mainstream media work so hard at maintaining.
[...]In closing I want to express compassion for all mainstream media believers. Those of you out still believing mass media news don’t realize how deep in lies you are in. You are not an enemy but a victim of their mass mind control tactics. The mainstream media and Hollywood are the two primary mouthpieces of the global government and the sooner you realize this the sooner your mind will be free.While Mr. Suarez focuses on the MSM, I contend that the "new" media is in many cases no more reliable than the old media.
If you think you're always hearing the truth from the new media, many of whom have already chosen their savior™, be very cautious. It has gotten to the point where just about everything you read has to be vetted.
One simple way to do this is to step away more often from the deluge of information being soaked up daily through the internet and TV. Give yourself time to actually think through some of what you're reading.
And if all this is not bad enough, how about the following: Used to be you could trust what you saw with your own eyes. No longer is that true.
Bernie Suarez is an activist, critical thinker, radio host, musician, M.D, Veteran, lover of freedom and the Constitution, and creator of the Truth and Art TV project. He also has a background in psychology and highly recommends that everyone watch a documentary titled The Century of the Self. Bernie has concluded that the way to defeat the New World Order is to truly be the change that you want to see. Manifesting the solution and putting truth into action is the very thing that will defeat the globalists.
