Football, Media : Weapons of Mass Distraction !

Who doesn't like sipping on a chilled beer while watching their favorite team battle it out in a game of Football or any other team sport for that matter ? The mass consciousness is so well controlled by Television, Sports and the Media, all working in collusion to keep the masses in a perpetual state of trance, glued to their TV sets, while in another part of the world innocents are dying because someone decides to bomb another country. We do get to know of some of these horrific stories through the media, we do pay attention to all the bad shit happening in the world, perhaps feel sorry about the ongoing chaos for a while and then return to the game on TV, and life goes on as usual.

We have been desensitized to an extent where we no longer feel any compassion for our fellow beings who might be going through difficult times and seem powerless to do anything about it. Let's get back to the Football and bring out the beers ! With this kind of an attitude we will never be able to see the tyranny we're living under, while meekly succumbing to the craziness of modern day living. All it takes is a little courage to step outside one's own fears and inhibitions ... and reconnect with this aspect of our being which unites us with everything ! Once we feel the pain of another human being we can begin to understand the cause for human suffering on this planet and begin to take steps to take our power back from the system while building something better working as a community living in harmony with natural laws. There are more people now in the world who are awakening to the big picture, each passing day. The time for real change is now ... each small decision we take brings us closer to, or takes us further away from our 'Dharma', our mission, our purpose to be here in this lifetime.

Here is a brilliant North Korean documentary translated in English, which shows how citizens are turned into compliant workers feeding the very system that enslaves us, without us realizing it ! It does contain some raw and disturbing footage of violence ... the harsh realities of our planet some of us never get to see ...

Just in case the video above doesn't work (they keep removing it) ... try the link below !

Watch it on Youtube !

The real story behind Columbus reaching America and what happened when they made contact with the Native Americans living there. Thanks Giving isn't what they've made the world believe ... The Documentary shows us the true history of the Western World like never seen before ! The ugly truth about this manufactured reality we see as opposed to how it really is.

Some interesting quotes from Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992) ...

"Modern industrial civilization has developed within a certain system of convenient myths. The driving force of modern industrial civilization has been individual material gain... Now it's long been understood - very well - that a society that is based on this principle will destroy itself in time. It can only persist - with whatever suffering and injustice it entails - as long as it's possible to pretend that the destructive forces that humans create are limited, that the world is an infinite resource, and that the world is an infinite garbage can. At this stage of history either... the general population will take control of its own destiny and will concern itself with community issues guided by values of solidarity, and sympathy, and concern for others, or - alternatively - there will be no destiny for anyone to control."

"There's nothing more remote from what we have been discussing than a conspiracy theory. If I give an analysis of, say the economic system, and I point out that GM tries to maximize profit and market share - that's not a conspiracy theory; that's an institutional analysis. It has nothing to do with conspiracies. That's precisely the sense in which we've been talking about the media. The phrase "conspiracy theory" is one of those that's constantly brought up, and I think it's effect simply is to discourage institutional analysis."

"When I was in high school... I asked myself at one point: "Why do i care if my high school's team wins the football game? I don't know anybody on the team, they have nothing to do with me... why am I here and applaud? It does not make any sense." But the point is, it does make sense: It's a way of building up irrational attitudes of submission to authority and group cohesion behind leadership elements. In fact it's training in irrational jingoism. That's also a feature of competitive sports."

Lightworkers, Torchbearers ... Way showers ... The time has come for the Tribe to come together in joy, in celebration ... Let your light shine !
