I’ve been feeling for the past few weeks to write a post about an underlying dissatisfaction. There’s an intuition in my gut that says ‘something isn’t right’. You know that feeling; it’s the one you get when you know you’re being lied to but can’t quite place the source.
Today, I read that post. Jonathan Cook laid it all out in a well considered piece called, ‘Welcome to the era of Great Disillusionment‘.
My synthesis of it goes like this:
- The government and science have forfeited our trust in favour of corporate interests
- Western media is biased and must be replaced
- Conspiracy theories have evolved out of the vacuum created by the lack of transparency and honesty in the above institutions
We all know intuitively when we’re being spun a yarn. The journey to correcting our way of life starts with learning to trust ourselves. It’s time to rebuild trust in our systems and restore democracy to our nations.
