Right now we live in a world of “fake.”
How many times do you need to hear the next version of “Trump is bad” before you realize most of it is out of your control, anyhow? And even if you “could” control what is being reported … mainstream news is bad for you anyhow, and only represents a thin veneer of what is really happening in the world.
It’s fucking fake, all of it. The mainstream media’s only purpose is to increase subscriptions with your money, get your “eyeballs” onto their stories, and produce endless reams of worthless clickbait.
It’s fake, worthless garbage. Fast food for your mind.
And “Hollywood” is fake, worthless garbage too, part of the bigger “sphere of fake” I’m alluding to. Endless movie remakes, star actors that want your worship, and sometimes all they can offer is complete idiocy.
(And yes, I do recognize the irony in “pointing to” media in the links).
We have got to move past the “fake” parts of our culture, run past the “gossip rags” in the grocery store, and quit adding truth to the ‘Murica stereotype day in, and day out (we can’t possibly be proud of that).
We have to move towards the real … educating ourselves about politics and media. We have to grow up, and quit berating each other over insignificant bullshit (sometimes ruining careers in stupid witch hunts).
We have to think in 3 dimensions, not just one. We have to focus inward, and work to improve ourselves instead of falling for another “what does Kardashian look like today” garbage article.
The “fake culture” we are living in doesn’t allow us to live to our full potential as human beings … period. Quit participating in it, full stop.
Read books, think deeper, and genuinely connect with each other beyond media. If we don’t do this … they win.
