OMG, Was George Orwell Right?
I have been taking more of an interest on the media’s manipulation of the masses just lately and I’m horrified at what I see, I knew it was bad but I had no idea it was as far reaching as it is. It came to light more so today when one of my Twitter followers tweeted that ‘The Chinese Communist Leaders should not be trusted’, well, I’m obviously not going to comment on that one due to where I live, however I did reply to that statement simply saying ‘Politicians and politics in any country should not be trusted’! and please stop blaming one country for the problems in our world!
We must, if we want to see change happen and see a possible way towards world peace; start working together as one race, and not in a competition against each other for supremacy and power. We must find a way to form media outlets that speak for humanity not on behalf of the powerful global corporations, the rich, the famous or on behalf of one country over another.
Here are a couple of links that really surprised me

There is a movement globally towards world peace, we just need to start listening to the right channels to find out more and stop watching and reading the media that is trying very successfully to control our lives.

The media is terrible at doing its job properly. Instead of informative and insightful news, it is full of xenophobic propaganda and political scapegoating. Its a disgrace. I’m from the UK and we are seeing the rise of anti-immigration here as the media uses foreigners as the scapegoat for the economy’s failings. Truth is immigrants make up less than 5% of the social security burden for the state. But this fact is buried by the media who wish to push and promote the government’s policies to a public who know no better. And now we are facing a referendum on our European membership – our biggest asset in the fight to stabilise our economy. It saddens me and has lead to me not picking up a newspaper in over 14 years
The media making money, that’s how they do it and money is all they care about, they destroy people, communities and countries with their untruths, cause political and religious wars through their lies and deceit! All in the name of power! Power for the few at the expense of the many!
I have stepped away from watching the news for years, knowing it is only brainwashing of the worst kind. The other day I had a doc appt. and in the waiting room there was a huge plasma TV blaring out death. I frantically looked around to find someplace away from this death and so I sat in the children’s playroom. It is horrifying what I am seeing as a result of the media.
I know Amy, its madness but together, we can make it better 🙂
Mark, for this reason, I have a blog that focuses on Beauty, Truth, and Love. I will not bend my knee to the madness of this world. Love, Amy
Good for you Amy, you may like my post today 🙂
