Who do we look to for guidance and truthful information?
Traditionally we have always looked to the establishment to fulfill this role for us.
What we would call esteemed members of our society , like doctors, judges, scientists , media , politicians and religious leaders , to show us the
way, to guide us to the truth.
We have placed their voices upon a pedestal and handed over our authority to their findings, rulings, laws and judgements , dictates and doctrines.
Question 1 :- Hows that working out for us?
2 :- Are we getting the truth from these people?
Lets look at the chain of command in this hallowed structure that we source all our TRUTHFUL information from.
Some would say the Church is the highest source of truthful information and guidance.
Others would say it is the Government that sits at the top of our information heirarchy.
Still others would claim its the leaders of industry that guide us to what we need to know.
Yet others would say there is an overshadowing secret group that control it all.
Well my take is , the Government ( secret and avert ) ,which is influenced by church and corporations , who then dictate the rules, funding and
guidlines to the judges, scientists media and last but not least us.
Question 3 :- So what happens if the Government is corrupted
4 :- Who do you believe is the ulimate source of information and truth in our Societial structures today ?
5 :- In which of the above groups , is there not systemic corruption?
So lets us recap:-
We as a society rely upon these individuals to guide us to the truth , not only that we tout them as being the bastions of truth and information.
Question 4 :- Why?
In todays world we have alternative sources of information also and they are the social media networks.
This is the body of humanity expressing what it feels , sees , knows and thinks.
This body of course has all of the above as components of the whole , it has its disinformation and its truth.
The one major difference between the two systems of information discemination is that social media whether truthful or not allows you to choose your
Is it filled with professionals that are in the know ? of course.
Does it have blantant liars ? of course.
Does it dictate what you are allowed to know? No
So with the two types of information sources we have one that is Top down , which filters the truth to the rest of society in a form that they decide
you should be aware of.
The other source is Bottom Up and it comes from the uncensored and unrestriced indiviuals of individual members of Society.
The above is the basis on which the disemination of information and truth can be sourced.
Question 6 :- Which of the two above sources fully allows you to use your discernment?
7 :- Who do you believe?
I have put this post together is a effort to challenge the percieved holy grail of our traditionaly sourced information.
These are questions we all should ponder , when we tout any source as the ulimate source of truth and knowledge.
It's time we checked our sources.
