What we think is always the recycled thoughts of those who came before us.
That is why it is so difficult to learn. That is also why we can only learn from our mistakes.
I am as much a prisoner of humanity as we each are.
Here on Newsvine I am often confined within a box - by those who fear what they don't understand or know.
The tendency for we humans to act, think and look alike is over whelming.
Those who deviate are ostracized. These invisible shackles we place on one another are often given benign labels such as laws and rules.
Furthermore - we are taught to obey these rules and laws, not withstanding that they are created by humans who often break the laws and exploit the masses.
That is the problem with group think and it why the media is the key to controlling human minds.
What is not allowed in the box we are all confined too .... is much more powerful in the hands of a few than the many.
Knowledge is power but lack of knowledge is far worse - it is intellectual slavery.
Economics is labeled one of the social sciences - this is a convenient shell game played with words.
We associate the word science most often with truth.
Economic theories such as capitalism are not the truth however. They are a prefabricated and manipulated set of social rules governing society and reinforced by laws.
Thus we associate capitalism and corporations with freedom and democracy which could not be further from the truth.
If we each want to live we must first free all humans from the shackles of a governing society that favors the few.
WE must homogenize humanity.
