We have been lied to for decades. What can we do?Submitted by jmofaustin on Wed, 07/11/2012 - 13:12
I have been speaking with my dad, he is 65, about how the media lies to us and that he should stop watching the propaganda. He said he knows, it has been this way for decades and told me to watch "Reefer Madness" which was filmed in the 30's. It is on Netflix, and YouTube. I couldn't make it through the whole movie, but WOW, I can't believe the BS they spewed then about marijuana and it's effects. Basically, the gist of it is that if you smoke pot, you start to laugh uncontrollably, then comes dangerous hallucinations, space expands and time slows down almost stands still, then comes monstrous extravagances, loss of power to control physical emotions, leading to acts of shocking violence and ending in incurable insanity.
Anyway, he is saying to me "what can be done, with something as big as this (the few elitist)? we have no control and haven't for 100 years." I feel like he has given up the fight against suppression and feels this is a no win situation. He is awake now, but feels helpless. What can I tell him? I don't want him to just conform, I want him to fight.
