Vulnerability and confusion, the head spins, it can’t be. Someone has dared challenge your most fundamental beliefs, the belief that America is the good guy, the belief that the government wants what’s good for us, the belief that the news we see is real. Enter the agonizing state called cognitive dissonance.
Several Boulder psycho-analysts discuss why people are so reluctant to accept truth about 9/11. Trauma, fear, the overloaded mind shuts down. It’s easier to deny it and move on with our lives.
What makes us refuse to believe the media is lying no matter how many times it’s exposed or how blatantly obvious it is?
We so want to believe, like baby birds with beaks agape, blindly accepting whatever grubs are dropped in. Why?
Could it be we were trained that way?
The truth is awful, sickening, debilitating, but for whatever reason, you can’t turn away from it.
It’s the call to wake up from the Matrix.
Some wise words from a fellow truth seeker on taking the proverbial red pill.
But be warned, taking the red pill is not without its hazards. When you start to think for yourself, with an open mind, there are consequences.You start questioning everything, not just what you see in the news.
You start seeing the USA and the world through clear and focused eyes. You realize how much of your life has been lived in a false, but comfortable world of illusion. Smoke and mirrors used to fool you into complacency and blind patriotism.
You stop nodding your head in agreement with your friends and family when they parrot the party line or latest sound bite from TV and you start questioning them, playing devil’s advocate to whatever they say. As a result, you may lose friends and alienate family to the point they won’t talk to you.
You get pissed off when you realize that the taxes you have been forced to pay have been used to build the shackles now imprisoning you.
You start questioning the wisdom of wars: The War on Terror, The War on Drugs, The War on Poverty, etc.
You start asking yourself questions like, “if our reason for going into Iraq was WMDs and there were no WMDs, why are we still there?”.
You start questioning why a country that claims to be the center for freedom and democracy for the world has the highest percentage of its citizens in jail or prison and more laws on the books than any other country.
You start asking questions about events like 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing, Waco, our various wars around the world we are engaged in and not liking the answers you find outside of the mainstream media.
Taking the red pill is something there is no turning back from. Once you see things for what they are, you will never follow the flock again. You will always question anything you hear from any source. It will make your life miserable and wonderful at the same time.
It is much easier to take the blue pill, to go back to your life as you thought it was, your false and programmed reality you lived in. That is a comfortable world, a warm and fuzzy world where you believe the lies because to disbelieve them makes you responsible for doing something besides setting on the couch, drinking beer and cheering for the next “American Idol”.
But if you have the guts, take the red pill. It may end up making your life miserable but believe me, the ride is well worth taking.”
