Do you ever notice that American's reading comprehension level is almost non-existent now-a-days? People read one thing, but they only retain what
their mind wants to think was said, not what was said at all. It's like their brain is half way turned off.
Do you ever notice that barely anybody can speak publicly today without a bunch of "ums", pauses, verbal screw ups, etc? It seems that when I watch
videos of people in normal conversation in the 60s / 70s, or even debates and speaches, they seemed a lot "snappier" mentally, and their train of
thought was much clearer. Ever listen to a speech from Kennedy? They relied a lot less on teleprompters to feed them every word. They actually had a
"memory" back then, it seems.
Does it ever seem like Americans think that all the real "thinking" should be left up to the "scientists", or the politicians, or anybody but
Does anybody notice that the mainstream news talks to us like pre-schoolers, with a monosyllabic vocabulary and a patronizing tone of voice that is
reminiscent of an adult talking to a baby?
So, my real question is, because I'm only 25 years old, I can't tell if humanity has always been this mentally challenged, or if it's a new
If it's a new development (or getting worse), what do you think the causes are? TV? Drugs? Social programming? Lack of Education? Something in the
water supply? The artificial crap in foods? Chemtrails? The insane amount of vaccinations for the youth? Maybe D: all of the above?
BTW, I'm not claiming to be any better than the rest, my train of thought jumps around when speaking, always saying "ums", etc. I just want to know
if anyone else notices it. I don't think I'm "smart", I'm just witnessing humanity's flaws. Maybe we've always been this dumb. Maybe that's
why TPTB think that we need to be treated like sheep, and they are our masters.
Truthfully, I've lost all hope for humanity. I mean, for Christ sake we're on a conspiracy message board, yet a majority of the people here
actually back up the government's actions on every account. The social programming has been going on too long, and is too deeply entrenched in the
minds of the public to simply change. People's egos do not let them shift paradigms easily. Americans are too "cocky" and think they are informed
on an issue because they saw a pre-school-esque blurb on CNN for 20 seconds.
When the USA falls (and it will fall eventually), there will be nobody to blame but ourselves, just like the citizens living in Nazi Germany
could not blame the propaganda when their country finally fell; they could only blame themselves. Sure they were lied to, but in reality we all have
brains, and the burden is on us all to actually use them.
