Buddy guy is losing his shit over Kony video...All of these are in the past hour.
You wanna know why Africa is so fucked right now? It's not the work of a man named Joseph Kony. It's the work of a global empire called the United States of America. You wanna know how they fucked the world up so bad? Or do you just want to sit in your bubble and think you understand the world?
Do you really give a damn? Do you really want to know why people live like shit, or do you want to wait for the next big flash in the pan to wake up from your stupor? Well I'm gonna give you an option. If you really give a fuck, and have the whole time and were just waiting for the right moment to begin looking for the truth, then let this be a starting point for you. If you DON'T give a fuck and are just easily tricked by youtube videos and like to go along with a herd mentality, then go back to sleep and American Idol will be on at 8 PM PST.
By the way, if you guys REALLY wanted to fight for justice in the world, you would fight to stop the US war machine from raping another Middle Eastern country (Iran) instead of being duped by psychology to back the movement of US troops into Uganda. But no, the fact that we're on the horizon of another civilian murdering war (1,000,000 + dead Iraqis by now) isn't the subject of a carefully targetted social media campaign, and thus there aren't 60 people sharing it on Facebook. You think that's where truth is found? Shared by 60 people on Facebook? No, the real truth you have to go looking for, it doesn't find you in a Facebook newsfeed.
You motherfuckers crack me up. If George Bush right now told you Saddam Hussein had WMD's and was threatening to blow up the world you would jump on board and tell George to 'go save the world!' THINK, god damnit.
I used the think the internet would set people free because all the information would be easily accessible. People wouldn't be tricked so easily because they wouldn't be watching television.
But no. People fucked around on FB and played video games all day and couldn't be bothered to find out what the truth was. And then a youtube video comes around and plays on basic psychology and the sheeple line up for the execution. The internet didn't set anyone free, it just provided a more convenient for people to be totally controlled. What a sad day.
How did the world get to be like this? Why do people compulsively buy shit even if they don't need it and they know they don't have the money?
Well, back in the 1940's an influential man named Edward Bernays, who was the nephew of Sigmund Freud, gave his uncle a pack of cigars as a gift. In exchange, Bernays received his uncle's new book, which uncovered the primitive unconscious forces inside man (This was a very novel idea at the time, that under our consciousness there were functions that we weren't aware of)
Bernays was intrigued. He took this information and created 'public relations', which was a way to avoid the word 'propaganda'. He wrote a book in the 1940's called 'Propaganda' which spelled out how you could control a whole population by manipulating their unconscious, animal urges. The methods were picked up by the ruling class during that time, and until this day they still use that same techniques to control YOU
So, do you give a shit? Do you really want to understand the world, or have you already fallen back asleep again? I've spent a long, long time trying to dig around and find the truth. Do you want to hear some secrets that will piss you off? Or do you want to slip back into your state of perpetual distraction until the next viral video that points a finger at the bad guy comes along, and you can sharpen up the pitchforks and feel that when you have some random Ugandan on a stake you will have brought some justice to the world.
I have my guess. Prove me wrong
I love the fact that this is coming from a guy who spams my feed all day with shitty OWS videos and alternative news sources.Edited by Stazy - 3/7/12 at 6:29pm
