I think we can all agree that mainstream media doesn’t report news that serves our best interest. Sadly, there’s no incentive for corporate media moguls to tell it like it is because speaking truth to external ‘reality’ empowers autonomy and critical thought. The greatest danger to the status quo is a humanity that thinks outside of the confines of its cultural conditioning. This doesn’t bode well for a mechanized civilization based on the foundation of consumption, distraction, fear, group think, and separation. In order to maintain the inertia of the status quo, we’re fed a steady diet of diluted half truths, sensationalism, celebrity gossip, and outright lies instead.
