Can’t Find the Reasons
Are we defined by our knowledge or our lack of it? Our thoughts create a predisposition forming our perception which partitions our perspective to accept beliefs as truth despite contrary evidence as being observable and provisionally true. These ordained falsehoods or reflections of mysterious declarations are anesthesia to ignorance compelling rituals of conformity. Still, the hype is real promoting a reality of distorted dependencies habitually spread as fact. We adapt to our knowledge it does not adapt to us. Competing proposals can not only reveal proof but also disproof where clashes of facts collide.
Belief cannot supplant questions of fundamental disputes where assertions rely on the disputed contradiction with mostly our belief as the main validation. Lack of deduction induces conditioned assumptions from a selective criteria leading to the mass mania of fanatical conviction even if not strict adherence. A desperation to believe or sculptured explanation precedes the belief’s indoctrination. Psychosomatic experiences and social reinforcements confirms the psychological and emotional attachment further validating the belief. Extreme fear, panic, and anxiety historically are used to motivate irrational occurrences such as witch trials, McCarthyism of the 50’s, racism, economic forecast of doom, homophobia, religious extremism, partisan politics, and any square peg of fear in a circle of coercion or ignorance.
These apprehensions are social distortions widely embraced to instill fear, obstruct change, or stimulate psychological innuendo. The expectation is worse than the reality because our minds has an unlimited ability to conjure up catastrophes of our fearful imaginations. Situational justifications accompany the irrational conformations necessary to suspend our moral sensibilities thus fueling our subjective agendas. This is how crusades, atrocities, and persecutions are pursued in a frenzy of rationalizations whereby the resulting actions are inconceivable and despicable. The concealment of such degeneracy generates a vehement denial to preserve dignity and separation from the evil done.
So the inconceivable which is undeniable becomes the unspeakable and oblivious revisionist minimalizations of regret. Time is not stagnant nor is change but our resistance to both are ghost of futility proving repeatedly that change occurs with us, around us, or without us but rarely by the compass of our permission. The circle of acceptance eventually increases according to expanded evidence beyond our belief to embrace an unquestionable truth. The mass hysteria is a panicked reaction to ideologies which challenge or alter our comfort or prestige creating uncertainty and a perceived anticipation of decline thereby rejecting truth and change while safely clinging to belief.
Primitive instincts of fight or flight and self-preservation overwhelms our sensibilities into a raging crescendo of uncharacteristic hostilities as an outlet for rampant anxieties and insecurities. The unrelenting consequence of this is not only regretful actions but also distractions of negligence to pursue solutions. Change is a redistribution of circumstances and familiarity causing uneasiness and adaptation. The delay or prevention of change prolongs the benefit to those seeking to hoard power or privilege. Therefore, the crux of change is the balance of benefit sequestered and insulated by the status quo of established methods. Accordingly, any major change is usually by force or utter necessity against the gate keepers of authority and influence to reject prior beliefs and practices.
Discovery and exploration tethered to ancient and primitive ideologies and mass hysteria sabotages social progress. From days of old information was forbidden to the common folk as being too ignorant to comprehend. Thus, sacred knowledge required that belief was the only validation for inaccessible information fostering a dependent subjugation by illiteracy. Development of universal humanity suffered from the resulting caste systems of knowledge, wealth, and prestige. However, the contemporary equalizer is information is now abundantly available to most at our finger tips. So, as the questions continue, how much longer can we ignore the answers? A footnote of any civilization is its progress and knowledge.
Civilizations and their proclivities crumble over time when signs are ignored past a tipping point. The tipping point is upon us as our apathy and arrogance of entitlement will be the vanity of our failure. To preserve survival evolution must occur. If information and education erases the deficits of ignorance, deceit, and psychological control can ritual beliefs and indoctrinations continue to forbid progression? So, if it is available what is preventing our access except for our pursuit? If we can’t find the reason to thrive, we will have no reason to complain or for things to change.
If divided we stand, united we will fall when the excuses outweighs the reasons. The past contorts the future when the present is mired in obstructions to intellectual and social progression. How can we entertain a multitude of distractions but can’t find the reasons to avoid the implosion of society? Knowledge has always been power and possessing Knowledge always will be the advantage of those who know to rule those who don’t. The incentives are self-evident and the reasons are motivational persuasion to secure advantages beyond those subdued by ignorance. Arm yourself with knowledge and information as an antidote to ignorance and deceit or behold the liabilities with no good reason why.
