Delete every social media app. Do it now. Nothing I’ve written herein will change your mind, because you must make the decision to take responsibility for your mental and emotional well-being. Social media, on the other hand, consistently provides the polar opposite. Reason it out. Uninstall Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, TikTok, Snapchat, Telegram, YouTube, and all the other apps from your “smart” phone, remove the ridiculous “smart” watch, and wait a week to see what happens.

We’re alive during a pivotal, epochal time and space in this civilization’s history. We are setting the precedent for this a future generations — in all aspects and areas of life in this reality. Everything is shaking up, being tested, exposed and challenged, and necessarily so. Outright psychopathy and psychosis are on display in the highest offices of the land, on every screen, on the covers of every magazine. It’s there for you to see, if you’re ready.
The stories we live by in a society, and as a civilization, are a cross-pollination of narratives, derived from age-old belief systems, traditions, rituals, religions and literature, tempered and adapted organically by modern epistemology, pedagogy, philosophy, cultural context and the purely experiential. There’s an inherent, and perhaps predictable narrowing, or reduction, of the “allowable” within these structures. And because of an inevitable tendency toward identity and ideology, our struggles individually and socially arise as and when this unconscious mechanism is either unwittingly or deliberately used against us.
The dissident voice, or truther community, has always been heavily scrutinized, ridiculed, and considered to be the lesser, ignorant, extremist element of society, where fringe believers of a vast sea of conspiracy theories, and seemingly outrageous claims about our reality gravitate toward and propagate. And because of a persistent smear campaign — meticulously maintained across all mass, centralized media sources since time immemorial — that keeps these curious, questioning, researching, investigative minds segmented and ostracized from the mainstream narrative, it’s only too easy to cast anything and anyone who dares to challenge orthodoxy, doctrine, and established paradigm into the same bin.
Power is a subjective idea. Zuckerberg, et al., can play sociopolitical games with their now massive, contentious, schoolyard, infantilistic public forums — but not one single person is forced to use them. So, it’s your choice to afford them that power. Socialist media has become the mainstay for armchair activists and feckless couch commentators.
