SHOCKING NEWS!

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Are you upset by the stuff you read, hear or see in “the news”?

The most over-used catchword in the mainstream media crusade to castrate your mind and crush you soul is the word “SHOCKING”.  The so-called “news” sources search the entire world to find (or make up) the most disgusting, disastrous, tragic examples of war, murder, mayhem, insanity, chaos, crime and destruction.  Then they consolidate all of this garbage into very nasty bite-sized text or sound bits so it can be jamming down your dim-witted throat in the micro-seconds of your dismal, drug-impaired attention span!

Guess what, campers?  “The News” is intentionally designed to KEEP YOU BEING UPSET.  
When you’re upset with life you are more likely to give up, take drugs, be afraid to go outside, and just stay a home and be mentally and physically ill.

What I find to be the most “SHOCKING” thing about  “commercial” media (including network  and cable TV, radio, the internet, YouTube and Facebook) is the number of people who have already lost their intelligence, discretion, and ability to reason while they’re tuned into it.  If you believe ANYTHING you see or hear without investigating the source of the material, you deserve to become a brain-dead zombie.

Before you “believe” anything you see or read, ANSWER THESE FIVE QUESTIONS:

1) WHO IS  THE SOURCE OF THE MATERIAL?

(The names of the persons or organizations who wrote, produced and distributed it)

2) WHO PAID FOR IT?

3) WHO WILL PROFIT FROM IT?

4) WHAT IS THE UNWRITTEN or UNSPOKEN “SPIN” OF THE MESSAGE IT CONTAINS?

5) WHAT IS THE INTENDED EFFECT ON ME , THE COMMUNITY, THE COUNTRY and THE WORLD?

If you can’t answer these questions, just turn it off!  You will sleep better at night and have a happier life.

PUBLIC LIBRARIES

The public library system is one of the best ideas ever created to ensure a free, egalitarian society. 

“In 1731, Benjamin Franklin and his friends, sometimes called “the Junto”, operated the Library Company of Philadelphia partly as a means to settle arguments and partly as a means to advance themselves through sharing information. Franklin’s subscription library allowed members to buy “shares” and combined funds were used to buy more books; in return, members could borrow books and use the library. Today, the Library Company continues to exist as a nonprofit, independent research library.

Recently, a general change in attitude regarding libraries has become apparent, especially in younger generations. Students now enter college with a much different idea regarding libraries and how to go about finding information they need. A study of around 2,000 American college students showed that 93% felt that finding information online “made more sense” than going to the actual library. Furthermore, 83% stated they were frequently unable to get the information they needed due to library hours and another 75% said they just didn’t have time to go to the library.

This study follows a trend found elsewhere in the nation during this current economic recession. More people are relying on their public libraries during tough economic times. It really underscores the importance of public libraries, especially when the economy declines and unemployment rises.” The study looked to measure the increases in six categories from June 2008 until November 2008 in comparison to previous years. The categories considered were attendance (patron visits), circulation (material checkouts), virtual visits, reference transactions, percent of time public Internet computers are in use, and number of public internet computer users. The percent increases from the previous year are as follows:

  • Attendance (patron visits): 7.5%
  • Circulation (material checkouts): 11.22%
  • Virtual visits (such as to a library Web page): 20.21%
  • Reference transactions: 4.41%
  • Percent of time public Internet computers are in use: 9.74%
  • Number of public Internet computer users: 13.77%.

As can be seen from this data, all aspects of library use have significantly increased compared to the previous year.

Unfortunately, as library usage grows during a recession, the ability to fund public libraries declines.

BLISSFUL IGNORANCE SIGN

Nearly everything you will see or read in the “mainstream media” are false fabrications intentionally created to make you stupid, fearful and filled with false information.  Your perception of who you are, and of your own universe do not depend on “outside sources of information”.  Create your own thoughts. Perceive through your own eyes.  Feel what you feel.  Be Who You Really Are.
