Since I know people tend to have limited time and short attention spans (including myself), I try not to share long videos unless I consider them “mandatory viewing.” To warn you up front; this is one of those times, but before you get scared off, it’s only twelve minutes long. Now you really don’t have to watch this video, and I’m not going to go over the top to try and persuade you to watch this video like I have at times in the past. In fact, in a potentially extreme (although plausible) situation, watching this video could conceivably cause more harm than good to you and the world depending on how you interpret reality.
What I’m about to show you is reminiscent of the infamous red pill/blue pill scene from “The Matrix.” (For those of you who still haven’t actually watched this movie; the scene deals with a choice of either hearing and knowing the uncomfortable truth about reality, or forgetting you ever found it in the first place. Can you handle the truth? Or would you rather live peacefully unaware of it? After all, with knowledge comes responsibility, and with ignorance comes bliss? The point is, the truth isn’t always for everyone. Another danger with the truth is a familiar quote; “curiosity killed the cat.” Therefore this is also a warning; hearing certain information can have consequences as well as responsibility. Let me be clear, there are no worries if you choose not to take the “red pill” in this challenge. Don’t apologize for it, just stop reading this story. Turn on your television, play a video game, grab yourself an alcoholic laced beverage, and believe whatever you want to. The irony of hearing “truth” is that you might honestly be better off not knowing anyway. Have a wonderful day, and I guess history will decide whether you made the right choice. Good luck! Peace and love…
For those that want to take the red pill and continue:
Now it’s not like I’ve literally cross-checked every piece of information from this film, but it certainly makes a slick argument by pointing out many painful truths we’ve all been hearing about in regards to schools and psychology. Not only does it show the severe flaws that have been developing in our modern day American education system, it shows the horrifying reality its effects are having on our children. However, the question is; are you ready to handle the responsibility of knowing and possibly having to do something about it?
For those who can handle the “truth,” and for those that thought they could (remember, I gave you warning, so I absolve myself from any damages caused by your curiosity), here is my brief interpretation of the video: I believe the information to be either factual or sincerely factual, and yes, truth really is stranger than fiction. Another reason why I really like this video is is because “getting the word out” about esoteric information like this can be very difficult. Since getting people to read a book about it is usually an unfortunately challenging task, short videos like this can be priceless as I hope everyone at least has twelve minutes to spare.
Spoiler alert: I have further analysis of the film below for after the video has been watched, including uncomfortable motives and reasoning:
So what are the “uncomfortable” motives and reasoning?
Is it possible that you are being dumbed down for good reason? Are you and your children being poisoned for your own good? Yes, depending on how you view it! In fact I can think of three reasons why: Control, overpopulation, and panic prevention.
Control is obvious; if the people are dumb, domesticated, dependent, drugged, and ignorant; they can be much more easily controlled by the ruling class. Not real ground breaking information by any means. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but let’s be honest; not everyone starts out with the same opportunities, and the rich and powerful tend to want to stay rich and powerful no matter how absurd the society around them becomes. As a general rule, the ruling class has better access to education, information, jobs, connections etc, and it is not a coincidence. It should be pretty obvious by now that the “insiders” play by a different set of rules. But if that’s not a believable enough motive for you, then how about…
Population control is a far more sinister conspiracy theory however, and has an unfortunate amount of evidence*. This is also a tricky issue for me to deal with as well, because I really don’t have an answer for the overpopulation question (at least at this time), as I honestly don’t know what the “ideal” human population should be. Ted Turner thinks 95% of the people should be wiped out, Prince Phillip has stated that he would like to come back to earth as a deadly virus, and the Georgia Guidestones suggest 500 million as the “ideal” human population. Most people probably don’t give too much thought to overpopulation, but apparently many elites are obsessed with it. Although frightening, eugenics is a real issue, and unfortunately, many lower class people seem to be looked down upon as “useless eaters.” Now I realize America has been turned into an Idiocracy, but is drastically and covertly thinning the herd the best solution?
I guess this brings me to the third uncomfortable reason: to prevent panic. Hypothetical question: what if the elites are not wicked eugenicists playing god with their underlings, but are instead trying to keep said underlings dumbed down for benevolent reasons? What if there is an “end of the world” type cataclysm on its way, and the establishment thought keeping the population in blissful ignorance was a better idea than telling them “the truth” and causing a mass panic? Think about it: if an asteroid was about to hit the earth, would you want to be informed of the painful truth, and live in constant fear and panic while being powerless to survive the future? Or would you rather be dumbed down, drugged up, and mindlessly watching afternoon television when the end of the world occurs?
I highly doubt the establishment is that thoughtful, but you never know, perhaps what the world needs is a good cleansing after all…
*For further evidence of deliberate depopulation efforts and an explanation of eugenics, I highly recommend watching the following video starting at 1:29:05…
Ted Turner is officially one of the world’s most evil creatures…
In the future, only the blue-bloods and nobility will be able to have multiple rotten children. The rest of us serfs will be forced to live in austerity and adhere to a brutal one-child policy to “protect the environment.”
Since the serfs can only have one child, I’m assuming the vast majority of those only children will be forced into mandatory military service to fight the “war on terror.” I don’t know about you guys, but I think I’d rather not see Ted’s future come to pass…
