Deep within the human psyche is a need to be accepted. By nature people follow the path of least resistance, and typically adhere to a group of individuals who best fit into their own ideas of how the world should function.

On either end of the spectrum are two fundamental ideals, widely called liberalism and conservatisms.

Imagine these two ideas as containers into which multiple topics can be placed; ranging from abortion to the preservation of life, or spending with credit as opposed to only spending with the resources available.

The main problem with political systems are that governments usually offer polar options - liberal left, or conservative right.

Like marketers, government parties realize that polar individuals are more likely to pull in a large number of voters; unlike middle of the road political figures such as Mitt Romney, who suffered a grievous loss during his campaign some years ago.

Knowingly or not, the powers that be are polarizing the world - pitting one group against another and causing the pressure cooker of social parties to heat up; as we all know: when a pressure cooker reaches its limit it will explode.

For many months now, especially since President Donald Trump's victory over his opponent Hillary Clinton, this pressure has escalated to the point of irrationality and even paranoia.

The majority of media stations, print or digital, only make matters worse by offering very narrow views into circumstantial events and report on extremely subjective materials, while not maintaining their staple of un-bias reporting.

Letter agencies are working with these media outlets and other factions to manipulate the masses and use them like pawns in their political schemes. The question you need to ask yourselves is if you are going to allow yourself to be a pawn or not?

A wise person will set aside emotion and allow for civil discourse, as opposed to belligerent railing against the system or groups of individuals.

Our schools of higher learning are also involved. They no longer teach accurate views of history and only subjective rhetoric, while outright distorting factual matters to fit into their own agendas. Are you a pawn?

Do you support the murder of innocents, or be a pawn and support unjustified extinguishment of life under as a sanitary name and call it something else?

Do you support the delusional ideals of the human mind and celebrate it as rational, or be a pawn and play make believe and go with trendy ideas because it is the politically correct thing to do?

Can you observe the fruits of political labor and determine which is a sour fruit and which is ripe - or are you a pawn who eats whatever is placed before you?

The government, media, and modern educational systems do not have your best interests at heart. They are business who seek to create more power, make more money, and control you through manipulation that has been well documented and proven.

If you are liberal or conservative, take a long hard look at what you believe and why; analyze concepts and search your heart for what is true, even if the conclusions you come to do not fit into the world view you would like to believe in.

At the end of the day the media, government, and educational systems do not keep you an enslaved pawn - you do. We believe what we want to believe and justify it with, at times, ignorant and stupid rationality that has no basis in reality.

Be not a pawn to your own perceptions and you shall not be a pawn to those who present any other.

We ignore our primal urge nature and that's how they keep us as willful minions to their designs of diverted ignorance, hypocrisy and division.



We take human nature and them head on and we win. Its as simple as that.
