Here’s a sad truth. This meme doesn’t just refer to present day children, it refers to all humanity… as we all were children at some point. We were taught what to think and believe, not how to think and form our own beliefs. It began with our parents, with language, religion and social customs, traditions, and certain physical skills. We were taught to FOLLOW ORDERS, and to OBEY our parent’s aka (superiors, authorities)
That program was then shifted to school where we were taught how to memorize data and be able to recite it. This indoctrination continues through our academic years and then….. spilled over into the work place. We learned how to do a JOB and become an adult member of society. No where along the way were we taught HOW to think for yourself or problem solve.. as for most, it was already too late by the time we were three years old.
So now, with this covid-19 virus situation, most people are dumbfounded, awe struck, in shock, numb and in as state of panic as to how to cope with the problem that is really a diversion, a smoke screen to coverup what is really going on by those in government and a position of “authority”.. Since we were TAUGHT to OBEY authority, questioning government and the medical establishment is forbidden.
And so the sheeple mindlessly OBEY and and become obsessed if other (free thinkers) aren’t “GOOD CITIZENS” and also obey the dictates of the corrupt government. It’s time to remove the blinders and rose coloured glasses while you still can.. but for many.. it’s already too late.
I found this meme on my FB time line and I just had to comment on it. While it appears to be enlightened, in reality it lacks mental depth and critical thinking and instead, jumps to conclusions.
With just a bit more thought, one would realize that the EGO is not the problem, but the ALTERED EGO is. It’s the EGO that has become aware of itself; aware that it has been altered by old conditioned mind patterns, or, as I like to refer to them as imprints, programs and beliefs. It’s problem solving 101, something that the author of the meme and quote don’t have.
An analogy would be that a person realizes that their shoe lace has broken and is causing them to trip and stumble. Now is the person that is wearing the shoe with the broken lace the problem, or have they just recognized that there is a problem.
