Every time I watch mainstream media, my first thought is to refuse the news as factual. You know, like living in the perpetual state of April 1st. Which should be your de facto modus operandi when consuming the media and their dis-information.
In order to wake up and become enlightened, the first thing you should ask yourselves when being on the recieving end of the propaganda is to ask yourself: “Who benefits from this (dis)information?”
Answering this question more often than not leads you to the truth. The reason for this is the excessive amount of propaganda that is hustled through our collective consciousness.
We as a whole are highly manipulated. Knowing the truth often requires you to be isolated, and frequently described as a “thought criminal”. Being truthful often comes with people attacking you for recognizing the reality, and denying their illusions.
