State-sponsored schools and educational institutions will never tell you this, but the 'pillars of society'; governments, religious institutions, defence, industry, party politics, justice and so on, routinely rely on hoaxes to sell their respective agendas, by themselves or in concordance, to an reluctant public.
'Our' governments, religious institutions, defence, industry, party politics, justice departments, too, use hoaxes to create the illusion that "We The People" have no choice but the direction they wish us to go in.
What if what we "know" was purposely chosen to throw us off-track?
The movie The Matrix is an interesting science-fiction thriller. People believe they are living normal lives, but, in fact, it is all an illusion. In reality, their naked bodies are hooked up in vast rows of vats and used by machines, which control the Earth, to generate energy.
We, too, are living in an illusionary world, I content.
For most of the time humans have been on Earth, if they wished to see something, they had to be physically present. Stories told around campfires would create images, some more fantasized than others, and beyond that, ancient man was fairly firmly rooted to the reality as interpreted by its own senses.
As painting developed, but, most important, as photography developed; first still, then moving, then electronic, people could be exposed to images of things they had not seen. Today, we are even exposed to images of things that are, in fact, deliberate fakes. The conscious part of our brain knows when we see a movie, we are seeing, in costumes, actors on a set being filmed. On the other hand, these images are stored in our brains without a label that reads: false image.
Our six senses; vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch and intuition are our only contact with the world outside our bodies. These senses send data to the brain, which processes it and stores it in a memory bank.
This is important when you realize that, during a lifetime, literally millions and millions of false images will be stored in our brains. The further we get from the moment we first saw the false image, the more difficult it is to sort out what is a true image and what is a false image.
For example, if the Civil War comes up, most of us will pull up images from the movie Gone with the Wind or images from the public broadcasting services about the war. None of us experienced the actual event. Our only visual images of it are from photographs, artwork and Hollywood sets. None of these captures the reality of the event in its wholeness. Bear in mind, then, that we know nothing about the past except what we have been told in words, photographs and artwork produced by others.
Consider something that we have been told happened, in fact did not happen... Consider that all the words we've read and heard about it and all the images we have seen in artwork, photographs and film were, in fact, deliberately chosen to deceive us...
It's stunning, when you think about it, that 100 percent of our knowledge of the past is created in our own minds by words and images produced by other people, virtually all strangers. The same goes for much of our knowledge of the present.
We can be in only one place at one time and directly experience what is within range of our senses. Beyond that, we rely on words and images transmitted to us by strangers. Whether these words and images are indeed accurate reflections of the real things is difficult for us to know.

Let me point out, that most people, British, Canadian, American too, are living in a matrix created by a corporate elite that controls the news media, the entertainment industry, book-publishing, the universities, religious institutions and so on, even governments.
People thus, British, Canadian, American too, are bombarded with the same message over and over again. For instance: 'America is the most prosperous, the most free country in the world'. This is one of the the longest-running booms in history. All the economic indicators show prosperity. "Globalism is good" and therefore inevitable.
Now, certainly, many people, including British, Canadian, American know that they are not prosperous, and it must be disconcerting to be told constantly that they are. The probable result is that they feel that "their" failure must be "their own" fault.
Wake up, then ... reality may be rough, but it's a lot better than illusions.
Here's the clincher:
What you've just read are words too, brought to you by a stranger.
Don't believe - Find out
The most sure way to establish truth
is by facts, and facts are determined
by the properties that define them.
Weird concept huh?
rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : falsifiability
- it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does
as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -
New!! Improved!! Now With CD-Formula!!
CD: short for inevitability
