It's quite stunning how the prevailing social discourse (the "talk of the town") is so easily manipulated by the media, made possible by a completely
naive and apathetic public. I think I last posted about a week or so ago, and everyone was ranting and raving about "fake news"--arguing about who's
engaging in it, what the term actually means, etc.
And you're all still at it. Running your mouths about the same aspects of the same damn topic, having convinced no one of anything. The media picks
the "issues" they want you to be preoccupied with, beat you over the head with them for a few days, and then you do the rest for them, unwittingly
perpetuating their own nonsense in your sociopathic quest to be "right"--about ideas that weren't even yours in the first place.
Once this one has run it's course, they'll pick something else for you to be divided about, pound it into your brains, and let social media run amok
with the inevitable self-saturation to keep you occupied for another couple of weeks while the same players destroy your lives and taunt you while
You're like Sheep of Rhetoric, everything you discuss being hand-picked for you and force-fed to you until you've been tricked into enjoying it.
You'll call it "debate", of course.
You'll just obsess over "fake news" until they stick some other deliberately (and needlessly) incendiary bulls# "issue" in front of your face and
wiggle it around for another couple weeks, then change it up again, rinse and repeat.
Seriously. Take a step back from ATS and social media for a few days and it becomes embarrassingly obvious how everything you think about has been
chosen for you before you even wake up in the morning.
I dunno. If you get what I'm saying, then you get it. If not, well... baaaa-aaaa-aaaa.
