SOCIAL MEDIA.CON | The Illusion of Inclusion

Facebook is an exploitation of our social instinct, that people-based bonding is so critical for our success as a species on planet Earth. That longing to find validity and comfort in groups. To be seen, to be known. To know. Herd behavior, in a traffic jam when you see everyone turning down a small side road to avoid the block, you follow. There is trust in mass decision-making. This is in our DNA. We are not as sophisticated and “independent” as some make out. The new currency has gone from gold to paper to ‘likes.’ as with those former currencies people are willing to sacrifice everything to have them, despite them having zero real-world value.

Mis Education: Killing Fields

The common school system is akin to KFC fast food. That is all it is. And it is hard for many to accept because we are also victims of this system. We trust it with our kid’s education, we trust it when they say accept some more credit card and get into deeper debt. Why would you trust these people with your kid.? What does society want? Slaves that is it. They don’t teach critical thinking in school. They don’t teach them to be leaders in industry, only workers in industry disconnected from the process (Chomsky). They most certainly don’t teach them to think for themselves. The job of the system is to produce functionites.

African Consciousness

True teaching is not an accumulation of knowledge; it is an awakening of consciousness which goes through successive stages.— Ancient Egypt The discussion on African consciousness1)African consciousness is a term used in pan-African circles to discuss someone’s state of being connected to African history and an African identity and acting…

The Art of Debate

Do you know how to present an argument? Well if you are like 99% of the planet that means no you do not. What people consider a debate is really just a battle of opinions. For example you say 9/11 was a hoax and someone replies, “I cannot believe you belive that nonsense”. or someone says “The ancient Egypts were African people” and someone replies “No they were not black”. The responses are not counterarguments. They are counter-opinions. If I said “I believe in God” and you said “You believe in invisible make believe people” you have no discredited my belief, or my statement. You just offered yours. It is not a debate because nothing has been offered. And this is all people on YouTube and social media are doing when they engage each other. Rather pointless because a debate is an exchange of information, a critique of points and assumptions, a challenge of facts and how they are used. And very few people get even remotely close to doing this.
