The Sad State of the Internet: Men Read Disturbing Comments Women Receive Online Back to Them

Published

on

To most of us, the internet is a wonderful place. It’s where we spend a great deal of our daily lives, and it connects us to virtually everything and everyone in a matter of seconds.

Having worked as an online content creator for close to seven years now, I can confidently say that the internet has made the world a better place. But as with everything in life, the world wide web has its dark sides, too.

While most of those dark sides do not require any formal introduction, there is one in particular that I would like to turn my spotlight on: internet trolls.

Nestled comfortably behind the “security blanket” of our computer screens, many of us become creatures we would never dare to be in person. We tease, we criticize, and we abuse one another on a regular basis.

What makes the situation worse is that even those of us who don’t actively participate still encourage the hatred by becoming spectators, laughing at their jokes at the expense of others. The result? A world where negative commentary has not only become socially acceptable, but more common than positive feedback and support for our fellow humans.

Having been on the receiving end of some of this “criticism” over the years, I can admit that it isn’t always the easiest pill to swallow. But what I have personally experienced as a young male barely scratches the surface of the vile remarks that others are subject to.

The following is a powerful video put together by Just Not Sports that showcases how disgusting the online world can be. In the piece, a number of men are asked to read a series of insulting online comments that two female sportswriters (Sarah Spain and Julie DiCaro) have received.

WARNING: While censored, much of the subject matter featured in this video is derogatory and not suitable for all audiences.

As if the comments weren’t terrible enough, what really stood out for me is the context in which they were delivered. While there can be no justification for such vileness, neither of the women wrote anything that could even remotely be perceived as deserving of such retaliation. There isn’t an ounce of constructive criticism contained in any of the comments, and they were all made in response to the two women simply being themselves and doing their jobs.

This Isn’t About Ending Constructive Criticism

Let me set one thing straight: I’m not suggesting that the appropriate response to this is for us all to only engage in positive commenting. If people only tell us we’re good all the time, we won’t learn and develop our skills.

But we need to make sure that the critiques we decide to post actually offer constructive advice and are respectful when doing so. We should be helping to raise each other up, not bring each other down.

As a content creator myself, I can promise you that the vast majority of us take thoughtful responses to heart to see if any of it can be used to improve our material or our method of delivery.

The Easiest Test

In most cases, unnecessary rudeness is easy to identify, but other times, it’s not so clear. If you’re unsure if you’re being rude, the easiest test is to simply ask yourself, “Would I ever say this in person?”

Just as the men in this video struggled to read these remarks when face to face with their recipients, chances are most of us (if honest with ourselves) would be just as challenged.

If you wouldn’t dare say it in person, you shouldn’t be saying it online.

We ALL Deserve Respect

Given the recent U.S. election results, now, more than ever, many are fearing an increase in unnecessary and archaic hate crimes. Whether or not you believe President Elect Donald Trump’s stance to be for or against this behaviour, we need to remember that we are the ones responsible for what we do and do not do; we are culpable for both our actions, and our inaction.

For the record, this video was released well before Donald Trump was elected into power.

Neither of these women, or any of us for that matter, should be subject to this kind of negativity. While we may not be able to control most forms of abuse, this is one that we can all work to prevent.

When you come across posts or comments like these, choose to do something about it. Take the time to respond and defend the content creator, or at the very least report it as abuse. It’s time we all step up to the plate in creating an online world we are proud to be a part of.

How The Education System Limits Your Consciousness

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Higher Education has come under fire lately as being expensive, and students wonder whether or not it's worth it, from a financial perspective, to get a degree.

  • Reflect On:

    Does the system of education truly educate us? We have to question, why are we accepting a society that doesn't allow humanity to TRULY thrive? We made it this way, we can change it.

The debate around whether or not a college degree is worth it has become ever intensified over the last few months as people begin to beg answers to the question: when will students pay off their debt? How long does it take?

Further to that question, I believe “how many students end up in a job or career they actually enjoy?”

But economics seems to be the big question here, and that’s fair given our world always seems to push us to consider those numbers as the height of importance in society as opposed to creating a society filled with passionately acting individuals who do what they love.

It’s all too often we hear that thinking we could all do what we love is ‘a pipedream’ or ‘not thinking like an adult.’ In these responses, if we pay close attention, we are actually saying we’ve come to accept that the way the world is should simply be accepted. Sure, in some cases these days we are working towards making a difference in areas of society like equality and poverty, but are we truly changing our system radically enough to make it so humanity can thrive? Or are we accepting enslavement?

In a recent podcast about my philosophy on how shifting consciousness and understanding conspiracies theories are intimately connected, I explored the system of education and how that functions. The education system seems to be a learning tool for us to accept the world the way it is. While we think we are educating ourselves, and we are in some ways with specific skills, there is something more to the story we aren’t exploring. We essentially are taking an ever expansive consciousness, with full capability, and molding it into a tiny tight system of living and being that doesn’t even support our ability to truly BE.

I truly believe we need to begin dreaming bigger and imagining bigger about what we are capable of changing in our society. We have to question, why are we accepting a society that doesn’t allow humanity to TRULY thrive? We made it this way, we can change it. What if we could learn about the technologies we truly had and were capable of without having to hold them back because of commerce? What if we learned medicine without the influence of pharmaceutical money and drugs? What if we learned about how we could act as a global community creating abundance for all instead of learning how we’re all separate and we need an economy to operate? Are any of these things real? Or just a story? Why are we being told these things as if they are facts?

Let’s Stop Believing That ‘Children In Cages’ Is A Left/Right Issue

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The only reason that the issue of 'children in cages separated from their parents' is in the public eye is that it was part of an attempt to criticize Donald Trump's immigration policy. The situation was similar under Obama.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it possible that this Left/Right tirade on immigration is hiding a deeper problem? What will we find if we are able to see through the smoke screen of fabricated polarization and theatrical political debate?

When I hear stories like the one that’s hit the current news cycle–kids being detained in cages and separated from their parents after having entered the country illegally — I have learned to suspend judgment until I get the whole picture. This comes from finally discerning, after years of taking sides and identifying with one side of the polarity, that there are always two sides to any contentious issue, and the truth lies hidden somewhere in the vast middle.

Still, mainstream media sources tend to slant their stories based on the side they identify with. And this slant is even more pronounced when we are dealing with testimonials from members of either of the dominant political parties.

The very reason this ‘kids in cages’ story has even come into public view is that the Left is trying to cast the Trump Administration in a bad light, based on their current ‘Zero Tolerance’ Immigration Policy.

The response from the Right? They were able to identify the photo below, which was used and shared as part of the criticism of Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy, as a photo taken in 2014 — while the country was under the Obama Administration. And so they are able to ‘put the heat’ back on the Left, not only insinuating that Democrats are misrepresenting evidence for political purposes, but also that they are guilty of what they are accusing the Republicans of.

For more insight into this, take a look at Joe Martino’s recent short video ‘Why are we just now hearing about children in cages?’, and his in-depth podcast ‘Don’t be fooled by politics.’

We’re Asking For It

The truth is, we as a collective can hardly complain if important social issues keep coming to us through the dense filter of polarized political theatre. As long as we as citizens continue to fundamentally identify with one or the other side of the polarity, politicians will continue — in essence, they don’t have much choice — to ‘play up to’ their base and excite and arouse them, so that they can maintain power and support.

Take a look at the dramatic exchange between ‘crime-fighting super-hero’ Donald Trump and ‘sanctity of life’ crusader Nancy Pelosi trying to stake their positions on the immigration debate:

The Immigration Issue

In effect, the issue of immigration in the United States has many facets and needs to be dealt with in a comprehensive way. Most people would agree that, as currently constituted, The United States has some right to a process to determine which people will and will not be permitted to live and work in the country. Most would also agree with the notion that all people should be treated with a certain level of dignity and respect.

Donald Trump’s recent Executive Order to end family separation at the border would seem like a step towards conciliation — though it is met by the other side with general scorn and skepticism, amidst questions about whether this will reunite the families that are currently separated. One side will argue that 500 children have been reunited since May, the other side will ask whether those people are still in custody or they have been freed. Democrats will say that Republicans don’t treat immigrants with any respect, Republicans will argue that Democrats are blocking funding that will allow for adequate living conditions for detained illegal immigrants.

Meanwhile, for as long as any of us have been following this issue, people continue to suffer and endure abuse in a broken system. It is such a systemic failure, would it be such a surprise to eventually discover that the system has always been broken — on purpose?

Let’s Leave The Theatre

As conscious and awakening citizens, our primary role here is to stop buying into to the exaggerations, omissions and outright falsities being propagated on both sides of the aisle. Our own discussions about immigration policy should not be dictated by this fabricated polarity, within which we have to self-identify with one side or the other. Let’s try to look beyond and see that there is a much more powerful force, pulling the strings of both sides of the debate, and maintaining a state of confusion and inaction.

Suggestions now coming out that the Mexican border immigration phenomenon has long been used as a cover for child trafficking may be the point we should really be keeping our eye on. Despite Donald Trump introducing the idea that the Democrats are ‘responsible’ for this, we have reason to believe that immigration policy from both sides has long been facilitating crimes being perpetrated by powers far above the Left/Right fray. And if we are prepared to read between and beyond the distraction, and investigate through the smoky veneer, we may soon become agents of significant change that our politicians could never be.

Hegelian Dialectic: A Tool To Enslave Humanity

Published

on

By

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Hegelian thinking is built within our entire social and political structure and is a tool used to control perceptions withing society.

  • Reflect On:

    How much do we play into the elite and system in place simply by moving along with our lives as if everything is the status quo? How are we opting our consciousness out?

Hegelian thinking affects our entire social and political structure. The Hegelian dialectic is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined solution.

If we do not understand how the Hegelian dialectic shapes our perceptions of the world, then we do not know how we are helping to implement the vision. When we remain locked into dialectical thinking, we cannot see out of the box.

Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology we are playing a necessary role in the elites game and it holds this system in place. Opting our consciousness out is the key.

The chess board is a well known Masonic or Hegelian symbol, the black and white squares symbolize control through duality in the grand game of life in all aspects. Left or right, white or black people, conservative or liberal, democrat or republican, Christian or Muslim and so on. Through two opposing parties control is gained as both parties reach the same destination, which is order through guided conflict or chaos.

Left (thesis) versus right (antithesis) equals middle ground or control (synthesis). The triangle and all seeing eye we see so often symbolizes the completion of the great work which began almost 6000 years ago when humanity was taken over and disconnected.

The pyramid is supported by the bottom opposing sides. The capstone at the top is established through controlled solution or middle ground. Hegelian dialectic is one in the same, the final plan is in action, however, the system is decayed and destined for failure.

The dualistic order out of chaos model is based on separation of the people driven by economics. However, the planet is at the apex where consciousness is shifting and people are seeing beyond this game. Therefore the system that is ‘controlling us’ can be will be no more. Those manipulating the planet have used Hegelian dialectic to separate and control brothers and sisters, children of this planet.

The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, wars against inanimate objects, covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic and shift consciousness. This releases us from the limitations of controlled and guided thought.

It is all the same game brought on by the cabal of this world, we are choosing to play these roles to support a system designed to hold us back from thriving, but it is time to change that game. We can expect to see more madness and fear tactics from the establishment to keep control., but you are always free to think outside the box and let go of the Hegelian Dialectic. You can view this system for what it is as the moves on the chess board become more and more blatant.
