Our World of Lies!

Leave a comment

More and more I observe the modern world around me the more and more I am coming to the conclusion that we are not being told whole range of things happening in our world from part of the truth to blatant lies by governments down to individuals with an axe to grind.

In some cases we such expect it as most governments and politicians have been tell us lies for centuries so come part of the course to work out what the truth is behind their statements and we all know why they do it. Just nowadays they do put more spin which rather than hides what they are doing make it even more obvious to those people like myself who have their eyes open to what they are doing.

But now in our modern world it is not only governments who bend the truth even lie any more but those people with real issues about what is happening in the world and claim they are bringing the truth to the public attention have started to do the same trick as governments.

I suspect this is under the sad delusion such distortions of the truth to lies will grab peoples attention so they think the end justifies the means. But especially with people like myself it devalues their arguments to a point I now do not believe what they say any more or if I do I take it with a very big pinch of salt now. Rather than promoting their causes it now sets them back and they have lost their creditability.

Sadly such groups include the concerned with global warming who have told so many halve truths, blatant misinformation and disproved scientific theories I for one now simply do not believe them any more as their credibility with myself has gone.

Then we get to the biggest liars and tellers of half truths the big Corporations world wide who openly lie, spread misinformation and spread blatant propaganda all in the name of business and making money. Those within these corporation actually think what they are doing is right and proper because it promotes their businesses regardless of the fact in normal every interactions between people such behaviour is simply not acceptable.

But we see it every day from such corporations from small halve truths about products which simply to not work and never proved scientifically to the big and the lies and scare stories which included the Millennium Bug to Microsoft xp computers being suddenly attacked when Microsoft withdrew support for it, something which never happened much like the Millennium bug.

In conclusion my observations of the various governments, corporations, campaigning groups to individuals with drum to beat is that a large majority of them now think is perfectly acceptable to either bend the truth to lie as long as the end justifies the means. But they all have missed the fact once caught lying or bending the truth it devalues them and their causes which will eventually destroy what they are trying to achieve.

All this seams a very grim and cynical view of the world on my part but after so many years of life of accepting such behaviour from governments, corporations and campaigning groups, I have finally got fed up of being lied to and being treated like a fool by these people and groups!

A Mad World?

Leave a comment

If we totally believe the news being fed to us by the media in the West the world has gone mad and full of the evil of Islamic terrorists and groups who are so powerful the West is threatened by an invasion from the Middle East who will sweep away the Christians and start a new dark age!

But if you actually think about what is happening in the world and actually look back over the full history of humanity and considering over the last 50 years or so we have had peace especially here in Europe we have forgotten the simple fact that the world has always been like this.

One thing humanity seams to be very good at is fighting each other over our history and if we look back the current sectarian war in Iraq really nothing new as some 500 years ago we in Europe were at exactly the same sort of wars between Catholics and Protestants with same effects and loss of innocent lives.

But if we are to believe the media we are heading for a disaster of biblical proportions but you have to wonder why a Christian dominated West especially in United States are painting such a picture of the world?

It simple it is to distract the population from the fact that their own governments and corporations are failing both them and their economy. Add to this they are using the people’s fear to make them more compliant to their needs that is reduce their freedoms and allow the companies to get cheaper labour!

But as always people listen to the media in the West but do not question or actually look into what they are being told. As I said before who needs oppression when the population is so apathetic!

The Modern World: An Easy Place For Haters to Prosper!

Leave a comment

The experience of a friend on Twitter who has some very forthright and strong views got me thinking just how easy haters can attack those who they think are wrong because of the internet itself, along with the fact they can now too easily spread their poisonous views to a lot of people!

Basically the person in question has made in the past a number of what would be called controversial views on various social networks, forums and the such on the internet which have met with some less than mature and well thought out comments some of which have been full of what I would call blind hate to a point of being vile.

As I said this got me thinking in so much if these remarks were made in an environment where people had to discuss thing face to face the whole conversion may get heated but not as extreme as it has got on the internet via social networks.

It struck me these people seam to feel they can let lose with ill thought out, vile and hateful remarks back on the internet in response to such remarks almost as if they cannot get their head around the fact that the other side of the text on the screen there is actual human being with feelings.

Plus what do they think that this behaviour on the internet is acceptable because it is on the internet and it certainly would not be accepted if they were interacting face to face. Clearly even on social networks, forums and the such on the internet such behaviour is not acceptable in any community even a virtual community.

But this also goes hand to hand with our modern world in which our media and governments allow such hate to exist and in some cases even encourage it for their own purposes and needs.

The an example being the Conservative Party here in United Kingdom supported by the press who spread stories about the people who are unemployed being scroungers regardless of the fact the large majority of people who are unemployed lost their jobs because of the Banker backers of the Conservative Party. Hence now once again the unemployed are not helped but stigmatised as scroungers who should be make to suffer because of no fault of their own.

Other examples also include UKIP and blaming immigrants plus Europe for problems here in the United Kingdom to United States media painting all Muslims as terrorists when clearly they are not even those here in the United Kingdom.

What has become very clear to me in our modern world, especially in The West, it has become easier for the hates, in form of Extreme Christians Sects and Right Wing Political Parties, to spread their message supported by a sympathetic media and governments rather than those people who have a more civilized and realistic view of the world whose message is almost suppressed by the said same groups by subtle exclusion!

What Happened to the Western World?

What has happened to the Western World the so called centres of modern civilization which was forward thinking, innovative and progressive which has been replaced by a Western World which looks backwards, put profit before innovation and progression.

Just what happened?

A Gray World!

Leave a comment

After this week it has reinforced my view just how gray and unimaginative our modern world has become to a point it crushes those who show any spark of imagination, innovation even individualism. All this helped by system which promotes even encourages this state through the media and so on.

Then these said same people complain that the Western World in general is faltering, stagnant and in trouble which is ironic really as it was their actions, greed and self serving natures which created the world around them in the first place.

Now they struggle to get the mess they created but yet again their lack of imagination, greed and self serving natures stop them actually doing thing different and required to bring the West out of it malaise. So the problem will continue and has done so since the 1990s just different variations of the same problems with no real solution or action taken on anyones part.

What this does mean the Western World has stagnated both Industrially and Culturally to a point people have grown apathetic and tired to a point they just accept the world as they see no way to change it!

We see this stagnation in products we buy and use, the media we watch and consume and in the governments we vote in, or don’t vote in because of apathy, who frankly do the same old things to try to fix the problems but end up just putting off the problem to another day.

Culturally we see the stagnation in the media the Music, Film and TV companies produce for public consumption which lack a real content and a rehash of previous media with nothing new or inspiring again. Taking Hollywood as a prime example whose current output of films consists of remakes of older films, sequels with very few unique and innovative films.

In the end we now live in a gray world which lacks imagination, innovation and even a basic spark of life because we allowed it to happen and if people were not so apathetic, lazy or so self-centered they could actually change it but it is not going to happen.

I wonder just what is needed to change this as it has to be something big and spectacular to shake the Western World out of it’s current apathy until then it is up to the few individuals out there with an imagination, spark of life and innovation to keep fighting and keep the basic spirit of humanity alive until it is need again!
