Also understand people are sheep for a reason.
If a person trust someone else to do their critical thinking, they never do critical thinking that will lead them to question the person they are
trusting. Critical thinking and the desire to question and think are always valuable lessons to speak of.
The splinter in the mind is when two parts of the mind conflict. The awakening is when this conflict rises to the surface of the mind. But a splinter
in the mind is painful, so people have defences so they do not have to face it. This is why it just stays a splinter. Notice the use of that
analogy, it hurts when you bump it, when you think about the issues that create it.
Many don't want to think of what is happening because then they will have to admit they have to do something about it. Others don't let there minds
think about it because they would have to admit they were fooled. And the worst is they may have to admit they were complacent and partly responsible
for previously supporting the people that have caused the things they are trying not to think about.
Ignorance is bliss indeed, but willfull ignorance just isn't right.
We would all rather live in a simpler world, some people make sure they do by bringing up any feeling or argument to keep from facing the truth.
Empathy for other groups, and knowledge that they have responsibility as a human are what people need first, then support as the confusion of the new
perspective rattles their brain. Finally knowledge can be added.
Note that tyranny tries to teach people not to have empathy, and lower responsibility by saying you can't make a difference, or by creating reasons
to not like the group that is suffering.
So when people say all politicians lie, then we trust our governments story they are not thinking about what they have said. They don't think for
reasons above. If you force a person to face inconsistencies this can spark thought, and if they think, and if the person makes it past their own
defences this snowballs to awakening.
I hope this might help
