Let’s face it. We live in a command-based system, where we have been programmed since our earliest school years to become followers, not individuals. We have been conditioned to embrace teams, the herd, the masses, popular opinion — and to reject what is different, eccentric or stands alone. We are so programmed that all it takes for any business or authority to condition our minds to follow or buy something — is to simply repeat a statement more than three or four times until we repeat it ourselves and follow it as truth or the best trendiest thing. This is why Coke runs many commercials. Even though we all already know what Coke is and what it tastes like, we as humans have proven to be forgetful, so Coke must run several ads every quarter to remind us to drink it. And if you notice, ad campaigns are usually designed to run within a set duration and in a sequence where ads are guaranteed to be seen consecutively. This is called “programming” — the frequent repetition of words to condition us how to think, what to like, and who to follow.
For this reason, today, people who are given access to stand, speak, or perform on public platforms in front of the masses are not necessarily the most talented, but the easiest to control. Why? Because if any of them make just one simple statement about politics or the world, it could easily be repeated over and over again to affect the way people think, and create real social change. People like me who are outspoken and can detect flaws in the system will always be censored, denied influence, and prevented in many ways to grow. So how can WE create change, if those at the top are too afraid to say anything?
Again, to really change the world, we have to help people change the way they see things. Global betterment is a mental process, not one that requires huge sums of money or a high level of authority. Change has to be psychological. So if you want to see real change, stay persistent in educating humanity on how similar we all are than different. Use the conditioning process the system designed to control us — against them. Keep repeating statements that could affect the way people see things. Keep pointing out flaws in the system (your government, your state, your city, or any institution of choice). Point out corruption wherever you see it. If you don’t like the elections, call for new candidates. Don’t let the system pick a handful for you and force you to choose from only them. After all, this is a free country. We shouldn’t be given the illusion that we have a voice in the electoral process when in reality we never really did. Be pro-active, not passive. Use whatever skills you have to keep repeating statements to the mainstream. The power of resonance is very real. This is why there is now heavy censorship in the west. Censorship exists to protect corruption.
And lastly, do not only strive to be the change you want to see in the world, but also help all those around you see the world through commonalities of the heart so that they would want to change with you. This is how humanity will evolve to become better. This is how you can change the world. Stop being a senseless, apathetic follower, and choose to be a courageous leader instead. A leader with a voice. Be different. Be authentic. Be a lion of truth. Do not pick a team or a side, left or right, but always stand up for what is right against the wrong.
Truth always rises with Time.
