How many of these insane beliefs have you bought into? If you are afflicted with one you are in bad shape. If you are afflicted with more than one you are a zombie.
Here is the belief system of the brainwashed commonly called 'culture'. It gets piped into your brain, wherever you are... 24/7.
(1). Government is set up for your welfare. That is why it is not allowed to print its own money. You must believe it.
(2). You depend exclusively on government for your survival. You must believe it.
(3). The government works on your behalf and in your best interests. In helping and working for the government you are therefore helping your fellow man. You must believe it.
(4). You have "inalienable rights". America's Constitution ensures that your rights are protected. You must believe it.
(5). By devoting your time and energy to making others richer you are helping the great cause of charity and philanthropy. If you and your children do not work to make more billions for the One Percent, people in poor countries will suffer. It is your duty therefore to make others richer. One of these days you could be one of them if you work hard enough and long enough. You must believe it.
(6). America is a democratic country, not a two-headed one-party oligarchy serving a corrupt banking elite. You must believe it.
(7). America that doesn't have democracy is Divinely Appointed to bring 'democracy' to the rest of the world. In helping America implant non-existent 'democracy' into other countries you are helping Mankind.
(8). Catholicism speaks exclusively for God. It is infallible. You must believe what it says.
(9). Islam speaks exclusively for God. It is infallible. You must believe what it says.
(10). Buddhism speaks exclusively for God. It is infallible. You must believe what it says.
(11). Science speaks for 'God'. It is infallible. You must believe what it says.
(12). Television and the media devotedly serve The Truth. They speak exclusively for God. You must believe what they say.
(13). Freedom is doing whatever you want to whoever you want whenever you want. "Do what Thou Wilt" (Aleister Crowley) is what we must all protect. "Do what Thou Wilt" is worth killing for because it allows us to do just that. This is The Truth we call 'freedom'. But it is only for those brave enough to be able to "handle The Truth". You must believe it.
(14). Trashing your life is fun. That is why you were born. Trashing your life is an expression of your 'freedom'. The only thing that comes close to trashing your own life... is trashing the lives of others. That is your right. You must believe it.
(15). The purpose of medicine; and the innumerable profit making companies attached to it, is to cure you of your ills. You must believe it.
(16). One of these days a permanent cure for cancer will be found, but only with the help of your donations. You must believe it.
(17). The New World Order is in your best interests. The people behind it have been appointed by you alone to fulfil your will. You must believe it.
(18). In art, music and culture you are experiencing the very 'best' creative produce of the human spirit. You are privileged to experience it because it is the very 'best'. You must believe it.
(19). People who have 'made it" have done so on their own merits and thanks entirely to their individual talent and hard work. They thus have an exclusive right to all the world has to offer. You must believe it.
(20). You too can 'make it' if you believe in yourself and "follow your dream". That's all you need. You must believe it... Until REALITY tells you to WAKEN UP.
