After viewing the social media feeds, it becomes clear we have a storm of negative influence designed to change public opinion. Whether they influence us or not, that is up to us. We control how we reason, and how our logic creates our beliefs, and opinions.
When we divide ourselves using petty annoyances and ignorant contrivance, we show others our conditioned beliefs, what we stand for, or what we stand against, and the content of our characters. When we listen to sources that will have us bicker over issues that are clearly not imperative, we become the pawns and servants to the propaganda that we entangle ourselves with.
I care not to which political system of ideologues you engage with, but if we continue to divide ourselves over callow name calling as we do, there will not even be a chance for us to have any open debate.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Free speech has already been under attack. The U.S. is now criminalizing dissent, and has legalized propaganda.
Before we turn on ourselves over the massive propaganda machine constructed to subdue and structure public opinion, we should first educate ourselves, research the facts and cross-reference them, before we attack and attempt to dismantle the opinions that are commonly expressed on social media by our friends, family, and social groups we publicize with.
