I guess it all happened when I started college and started reading a lot of different books.
This included turning off the T.V. and doing a lot of reading, to make an informed decision.
I now feel very educated on what is going on

Accepting ideas esposed by others without seeking opposing views is a big mistake no matter what the 'truth' may be.
I'm in my twenties and recently feel like I just woke up. I realized a lot of what I have heard and learned in my life is a lie. From school down to what I hear on the news. I guess it all happened when I started college and started reading a lot of different books. First learning a lot of the history I learned in high school is false.
I think that being 'awake' is finally having an opinion of your own, based upon as much information as you are able to consume.

Found an interesting quote, btw. Written a bit hard, yet understendable.
New theme: let us have a talk about the blind... In order to increase THE EFFICIENCY of your life, respected members of the "society of blinds", first of all it is necessary to regain vision.
Now I have a question for you: why this form of society appeared, where they mutilate children and make wretched out of them?
You think this was by specially designed by someone? No, this is unconscious, and no one specially made this. Simply there are two ways.
The first - route, built for the satisfaction of human laziness. The second - a tiny path, trampled by those, who searches for themselves, those who have light burning within.
