What stops people from wanting to hear the truth?Submitted by MikeLawson on Fri, 01/02/2009 - 17:56
I was just told that I drive myself crazy with politics by someone I thought I was waking up. It's hard to explain that I'm not driving myself crazy or that any of the real big picture has the least to do with politics (at least the personality red team/blue team politics most americans know).
I feel free, enlightened and happy. I actually feel sorry for people who have no intellectual curiosity. But I'm not conviced that is the entire problem.
Why do you think people are averse to the truth? Why do you think people think others are driving themselves nuts when all they are really doing is sharing fascinating information. I know that powerlessness is probably a huge part of it, but it's hard to explain an intellectual journey for the sake of enlightenment. Do they need to get graded on all learning? Is it just easier to believe what they hear on TV?
Or----have many people become "fed-up" with it and decided they were not interested in anything but their own little existence?
I'm not sure how to carry on a conversation anymore because 90% of the topics people have are straight from the TV and its all part of the big picture. Maybe they think I'm crazy because noone on tv talks like I do.
Can someone help me make heads or tails of this??
