Things we can do: learn to ask questions and get answers that go beyond propaganda and even our own preconceived notions.
In all times and places, logic is never taught to the masses. There is no intention to do so.
Now, in our “egalitarian society,” education carries with it great PR pretension, a fakery that outflanks any other period in history.
Therefore, graduating students wrongly believe they know how to think.
In my collection, The Matrix Revealed, I include a basic logic course that analyzes passages of text for flaws and fallacies in reasoning.
In my latest collection, Power Outside the Matrix, I include a long audio tutorial, Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation, which is all about carrying out deep investigations of major official scenarios/stories, and discovering how and where these official structures can be penetrated, taken apart, and unfolded, so all their flaws and deceptions are exposed.
These two trainings are meant to remedy the deep hole people find themselves in, when they go up against entrenched (or even alternative) “knowledge.”
In this article, I want to focus on a particular logical fallacy I call: “this means that.”
It runs rampant throughout society. The fallacy bleeds into the reasoning process, into notions of self-worth, into people’s need to identify themselves with an “acceptable” position.
Take the concept of manmade global warming. For many people, affirming this as a reality means…
Scientist Gregg Braden says Mind is the most powerful force in this universe, but our thoughts are incomplete until we connect them with the breath and our hearts. This information was lost from the bible when the Council of Nicea chose which writings to include and which to exclude. The Dead Sea Scrolls, Nag Hammadi, plus studying ancient traditions and their practitioners, have helped put it all back together again. It only takes a small percentage of us to establish peace in the world: 8000 in six billion.
The Luciferians never lost that information – see this video about how they unite and focus on what they want to see in their lives – in this case, the murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
We can use this information to counter the evil that was set in motion long ago. We can agree that what we really want is peace, prosperity, kindness, goodwill… and then sit with those feelings. Shift happens. Bring this to any and all groups you belong to, or do it in the privacy of your own life. And watch the world around you change for the better.
This is what most American schools do not teach: how to analyze, evaluate, recognize logical fallacies, and so on. This site is full of valuable information. It is a generous gift to us from Dr Lau. Please use it to catch up on those skills that you should have mastered long ago. and please share it with your friends and families… children in school will benefit.
Learning or brushing up on these skills will help you navigate the world we describe on TheShameCampaign. The fiction-based media is fraught with invitations to fear, grief, resentment and retaliation. We need to be able to to separate the real from the false and be able to discern the true intention behind fake news events. We need to be able to help ourselves and each other steer clear of the nefarious agenda – and from the hype. Otherwise, the media is inviting us to think of ourselves as less than we truly are – even to self-destruct.

On any given day we’re lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception — and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

If hundreds of our government and corporate leaders rights to deceive the public, to lie under oath and to purchase elections … are protected by Free Speech, surely my rights to connect the dots and
search for answers … are also protected by Free Speech
Hello, my name is Chris Pratt. I am not a domestic terrorist nor any kind of a subversive. My goal is to encourage humanity to reclaim their most precious of assets, the most valuable real estate that they have been given; their brains, their thoughts, their perceptions and their beliefs. As a brain-injured survivor, the founder and former executive director of the Brain Injury Association of Vermont, this is real estate that I am intimately familiar with.
No arms, no violence, no marches, just plain thinking and common sense, that’s it. Think for yourself question everything. Ask for and demand verifiable references beyond “government sources” and from multiple points of view. While the Internet remains open — check things out for yourself. It is the last bastion of free speech in this country – a position clearly shared by the U.S. Supreme Court . It ruled unanimously in Reno v. ACLU, that the Internet is to be considered a free speech zone, deserving of at least as much First Amendment protection as that afforded to books, newspapers and magazines. The government, the Court said, can no more restrict a person’s access to words or images on the Internet than it could be allowed to snatch a book out of a reader’s hands in the library, or cover over a statue of a nude in a museum.
Free Speech Productions is a hub site for alternative voices and tools for critical thinking — tools that can be used to help us form our own belief systems. These beliefs should be based on well researched, evaluated and substantiated facts. In my opinion, the most fundamental of our personal freedoms, the right to think, to freely associate, to perceive and to discuss things are all in serious jeopardy. We live in a world where our beliefs are being engineered and manipulated by powerful interests who are determined to keep secret — what is really going on.
It is called Perception Management and it is openly advertised and promoted as a service, provided by many PR firms. Disarming these forces and reclaiming your power though, is incredibly simple. Stay awake, THiNK and demand answers. Lay claim to your beliefs as they are exactly that … YOURS. They should be based on facts that you can recall, articulate and defend and which can be verified by multiple and diverse sources. Challenge everything, believe nothing, be pessimistic and demand proof. Be a Critical Thinker — manifest your beliefs based on facts — independent of — corporate influence and popular newscasts. It may already be too late. Like global warming we have ignored the signs for so long that we now may not be able to decouple Corporate Fascism, from America.
This is a very rich, informative site. Explore. Enjoy.
To put an end to war requires that we put an end to the glamor of arrogance, evil, psychopathy and violence. It’s not our nature to hate and kill, contrary to the story we’ve been told. War is the realm of psychopaths. And they, the few, have declared war on the human race. No individual or group is exempt from their contempt.
