6 Signs That the World Suffers from Severe Cognitive Dissonance
Paul A. Philips, Guest
Followers of the alternative media’s more truthful and unbiased reporting will indeed know that we’re getting a better idea of what’s going on in the world, unlike the vast majority who only see the viewpoint of the mainstream media.
Given that the mainstream media acts as a vehicle for so much propaganda, lies and deception, and the vast majority blindly accept what it says, paying scant attention to the contradictory evidence, this leads many into a state of cognitive dissonance when challenged with the truth while defending the mainstream media’s official version.
With the masses not getting the big ‘hey wait a minute’ moment of realization accepting things that are in truth majorly not right, here are my 6 ways of showing that the world is therefore in a state of cognitive dissonance or even denial.
1. Going into agreement with the general consensus of the masses
People blindly go into agreement with the general consensus of the masses because they find it hard to accept that so many can be wrong about the same thing… Can they all be wrong? Yes, of course they can. But then there’s the related peer pressure to agree and fall in line and be one of the crowd…
But remember, the general consensus of the masses have given us flat Earth believers and football hooligans…
2. Blindly believing authorities
The whole fabric of our reality has been shaped by accepting authority figures from the very beginning starting with our parents and teachers…
Because this deep programming carries on in adulthood that’s why so many people readily accept authority figures (such as those so-called expert academics and senior politicians… etc.) regardless of what they say, even when glaringly obvious contradiction stares them in the face.
Points 1 and 2 are the underlying tenets for cognitive dissonance. When challenged with regards to 1 and 2, they would also be the underlying reasons for denial.
3. Accepting ‘coincidences’ commonly occurs with those in cognitive dissonance or denial
In effect the masses dismiss the conspiracies by accepting the coincidences.
Indeed, you only have to look at 9/11 to see how people accept those so-called coincidences to believe the official version leading to so many disharmonies…
The bloodlines of the US Presidents ‘coincidence’
How anybody can dismiss the conspiracies related to the fact that so many of the US Presidents are related using mere coincidence as an explanation beggars belief…
The Moon and the total eclipse ‘coincidence’
Another example of dismissing something without question is in the case of the moon and the total eclipse.
The moon is exactly 1/400th the sun’s size and is 400 moon diameters away from the sun. That’s why we see a total eclipse from our view on planet Earth with the moon in front of the sun. The fact that this relationship is considered mere coincidence, flatly dismissing suggestions outside of this leads to outright denial…
4. Blindly accepting statements made by the masses and authorities
More reasons for going into a state of cognitive dissonance and denial. Here are some examples.
“Hard work has never harmed anyone”
Of course it has. History tells us how many workers, such as the exploited ones, have suffered serious health problems or even died as a consequence of their hard work… but many go into agreement with this statement without questioning the circumstances.
“Conventional medicine is the only real approach to cancer treatment”
Many people place their faith in the establishment’s conventional medicine to the extent that when suffering with a life-threatening illness such as cancer they ignore the facts regarding the low success rates. Further they may ignore or even ridicule alternative therapies even though these therapies have shown to be successful.
“Vaccinations are safe and effective”
This was a statement made at a Senate meeting by an authority (see video above). In light of this, how do you think the masses are going to react when given evidence to the contrary if they never take the trouble to question the statement?
5. Inability to ‘think the unthinkable’
With the education system and the mass media brainwashing going on night and day, day and night, it’s a wonder how anybody can think at all. Real thinking, as Albert Einstein remarked, means to think the unthinkable.
For many, to go outside of the implanted psyche, go beyond the realms of the programming and brainwashing and think the unthinkable, is just too much for them.
With all the lies and deception in a world where nothing is as it seems requires thinking the unthinkable to discern the truth from lies.
In line with 5, many people, when explained how the deceptions work and all the related lies don’t get it because they’re in a state of ‘unbelievable.’ They find it too hard to comprehend that they have been so dastardly deceived for so long. That their life-long beliefs (be-LIE-fs.) are untrue and those who they looked upon as heroes are actually villains having an involvement in screwing the people enslaved by the system…
What other examples can you think of related to the above 6 ways to show that the world is in cognitive dissonance or denial?
Those in the state of cognitive dissonance or denial are victims. If they’re willing, they need all the assistance they can get in order to help themselves out of their victimhood consciousness and victim circumstances and become victor.
I hope that this piece has served to encourage those in the know to help these individuals by standing up for what is truthful, fair honest and just.
A compassionate and courageous stand is what the world needs most…
I also hope that this piece encourages living life as an enquiry. Remember, it’s a lot easier to take just a few hours or days… to gather the facts from research and feel liberated rather than spend the rest of your life believing lies.
