Ignorant



Discuss this Rant at the Podcast Table inside the Diner



Snippet:


http://www.nyshows.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/joe-montana-greatest-qb.jpg…One of the really unfortunate outcomes of becoming aware of impending DOOM while otherwise engaged in living a BAU “normal” life is how you become increasingly aware of how truly CLUELESS most people are about just about EVERYTHING, from the way the Monetary system works (or really doesn’t work); to what the FSoA military REALLY does (Hint: It does NOT make the FSoA “safe for democracy”), to what is really going on with the Climate, to how Capitalism really functions as opposed to the way they were told it functions, to why there are so many “Terrorists’ popping up these days, to the complete FABRICATION of the History of the FSoA as they were taught it from Grade Skule through Kollege…the ignorance is utterly astounding of everything of any importance at all.


If you try to talk to the average J6P, even highly successful professionals with a good education who are reasonably smart at functioning inside their professions, the number of misconceptions they have about how the world really functions is SO VAST that you really don’t know where to even START to try and wake them up out of their Propaganda induced STUPOR. Wherever you do end up starting, you are telling them things that are so cognitively dissonant to the model they have in their minds, usually they just look at you as NUTS. If you know them well and they respect you, they will listen, but then they will argue back their POV and completely ignore every bit of evidence you bring up to demonstrate why that PoV has more holes than swiss cheese. You get absolutely nowhere with this, and if you wanna KEEP this person as a friend, you just shut up about it and talk FOOTBALL! A problem for me these days because about the last Football player I have any knowledge of was Joe Montana. LOL…


For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!!

Now @ 200 Listens with a HEART and 14 Downloads on Opening Day!  :icon_sunny:

A few months ago, if I got 50 TOTAL Listens to a Rant I was doing good!

If the Internet stays up for another year and the Listenership keeps upping at the current rate, I can hit 5 Digits!

This is a fabulous challenge for a grizzled old internet hack!  :icon_mrgreen:
