Have you noticed how readily people believe something negative about a person, or a thing for that matter. All you have to say is, “He’s a drunk” and that person is instantly degraded. Oh, he’s a drunk, huh?
If people stopped and thought, this wouldn’t happen. If they discriminated?
Have you seen the person drunk? Does person making the claim have an agenda? What’s their motive? Might there be another explanation for their behavior? There are numerous questions to ask, to see it makes sense to take something like that on board but people don’t do this.
Now this may be controversial but I contend they don’t do it, because they’ve been taught / programmed to suck this stuff right up. Further, we’ve also be taught to take positive things with a grain of salt. It’s intentional and diabolical.
“He helped me with x, y or z.” So what? No one cares, we want the dirty stuff and who cares if it’s true!
If you take a minute and consider this, you may realize this does happen. If so, advance to next frame and consider WHY it happens. It’s pretty ugly, really. But this doesn’t me you’re ugly or I’m ugly or we’re all ugly, I’m suggesting we’ve been hijacked; all of us, to a significant degree.
This is one of the tactics being used for nefarious purpose. It’s huge even though it’s also tiny. If you can see it, you might be able to gain control and develop you own ways of weighing or categorizing information.
Everything and everyone sucks? Sorry but that doesn’t sound right to me. Either does the idea that one wrong thing wipes out seventy good things but this is how we weigh each other these days.
I writing this for fellow travelers who also want to exit this psychological hell. Can anyone see this?
