Manipulations on my Mind

I wanted to do journalism because I believed (well, still believe) that it is one of the most powerful tools of changing the world.

The sad truth is that it is just another way of advertising. Most of our news these days is about terrorism, celebrities, sports, rich people and blah blah blah. I don’t care how rich someone is or what celebrities are doing or who is winning what.

But the importance of such crazy mass-following has become ingrained in 99.9% of all people- especially our generation.

Everything around us influences us in subtle ways, but the impression is permanent. All of this fan-following turns us into nothing more than sheep. The more followers the better. And please, just because you got followers on facebook or instagram does not make you a leader; you are simply selling yourselves (which I guess in a way makes you a prosititute).

Yes yes, I know it is easy to hate. But tell me, will your celebrities or sportspersons or rich people save the planet? You might know everything about all the “successful” people you follow (read: STALK) but do you know that back-to-back hurricanes have been battering the Caribbean? Do you know it is because the ocean waters’ temperature is above average? Do you know this is happening because of climate change? Do you care?

This is our Dark Age. You might think you know about alot of things and so much information is at your fingertips, but really, how much of that information is actually of any use?

I know me saying these things will make no difference; I am just another voice of those 0.01% who are shouting in vain to awaken you.

Go ahead and watch that match or that show you can not miss or live without. Until then, let’s hope the planet will figure out how to save itself.

The Mystery of History

What exactly is history? How can we determine what happened in the past? How do we know that what is being taught to us about the past is really what happened or not? Everything in the world is to some extent touched by the hand of propaganda.

For example: Many people have a certain prejudice towards communism without really understanding what it really is. We blindly believe what is told to us and we don’t bother doing the research and finding out the truth of the matter for ourselves. In the day and time of the internet, blindly believing in what is being told to you, is a choice.

The sources from which we obtain information about the societies or civilizations of the past, cannot be completely accurate. Every time someone writes a sentence, there is always some sort of bias that inevitably comes into play.

These days there is so much Islamophobia going around the globe, and honestly, how many of us truly even what Islam is about? Governments always have a hidden agenda. Break out of the barriers and see that we are all one. We are all human beings with equal right to a happy life.

The history that is taught to us, in the same way, has some sort of propaganda attached to it. It is important to research facts and use the internet to its maximum potential. The internet has all the information and knowledge that we know of; Why not broaden our horizons and the way we use the internet for something other than just entertainment?

Curiosity may have killed the cat; but healthy skepticism has only made man wiser.

RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH;

OPEN YOUR THIRD EYE, AND

FINALLY SEE THE TRUTH.
