This is a subject that I find very interesting lately, and not for the reasons you think, but because I think it shows signs of having enormous potential for waking people up, it is the present Flat Earth movement. Whether the earth is flat or round is irrelevant for this article, whether the people investigating it are as educated or more so than our renowned scientists, NASA etc is also irrelevant. I will not discuss any of the flat earth theories here, that is not the purpose of this article, the point is to observe how people react when presented with new information. I'll leave a few introductory links at the bottom for anyone who is curious.

Anything that ruffles the feathers of mainstream media and politicians I have to support. The days of monopoly corporate, or state sponsored news and propaganda are drawing to a close, I hope, perhaps that’s the reason there is panic from governments the world over to control the Internet, to reduce our access to alternative media. Mainstream media is about ratings for the empire and fame for reporters all facilitated by drama. It is important to realise, mainstream news is not news, the delivery chosen is not intended as news, it is intended as entertainment. There is more money in entertainment. The highs and lows of emotions, the release of chemicals in the brain has been described as an addiction that keeps us tuning in and distracts us from any effective solution or alternative.
We need a thinking questioning population.
This is a simple question, and there is no ‘wrong’ answer. The purpose is to help us find any inconsistency in our beliefs. The question is: Do you believe in freedom? Ultimately this question boils down to ‘do you want peaceful adults to be free to make their own choices?’
Now many will of course think 'No, I don't want people free to make their own choices.' Well, although I disagree with you, I do respect you for having the awareness to make that statement.
You cannot create equality by treating people unequally.
Before we begin: There is no ‘The People’. There are six billion individuals with very similar needs but differing interests and desires. Sure we all need food but some want a vegan diet and others love a good burger. ‘The people’ is a meaningless undefined term, like ‘the poor’ and ‘the rich’. People vote and protest yet have not realised that this is all energy wasted, the government cannot serve 'the people', because 'the people' do not exist.
The slaves have yet to realise there is too many of them with too varying interests to be properly served.
