TRUST AND BETRAYAL

Post by alisonfletch »

"The majority of the population do not think that they are responsible for themselves in everything they do, this is why they don’t bother researching things by themselves as it takes time and effort. They think that everyone has a role to play in society, and we should just, almost blindly, follow another’s lead, based on social status and the idea of credentialism. At least, this is the general and acceptable view of how society should function".

'You never expect a sudden switch to lies, misinformation, and propaganda. You don’t even think that such an event could ever occur. People simply have conditioned themselves via constant repetition to have a certain level of trust and expectations in what “News” channels and media represent and are showing them. Of course, the level and degree of trust will naturally vary between individuals, channels, and competing networks, especially when it comes to politics.

But what needs to be pointed out is the fact that people become even more gullible and trusting when things get global, meaning that the same message is being reported by almost every major station in the world. If all main news channels speak the same voice in a coordinated fashion, then what you receive must be true, right? Of course, they would never mislead or lie to you. Why would they ?!

This is how the average consumer of mainstream media thinks. It never occurred to them that, someday, for some reason, things may suddenly change. Additionally, they never step out of their comfort zone, and this, in return, negatively affects their critical thinking and pattern recognition skills'.
