Had enough of your benevolent programmers?

Had enough of your benevolent programmers?

How many times can we highlight articles from the media demonstrating the state of this world before we get up and do actual work to change it? Tragically, people seem perfectly content to do the media’s publishing for them without taking any real action.

What are we seeing that’s new? It’s the same old story rehashed for modern times: Governments Steal from People, Innocents Mercilessly Killed, Man Wrongly Arrested, the list goes on. These recurring events are not new to anyone. Here are the headlines you need to pay attention to: Public Continues to Fall for Government Tricks; Simpletons Do Government’s Bidding—Again; Cameron Successful in Distracting Masses from Real Problem …

This is the real news. Forget about fracking, forget about terrorism, forget about war, forget about disease. In fact, forget about everything the mainstream media reports on. There’s a reason that Twitter and Facebook are called social media: society is the real news network. If we are the social media, then effectively, the BBC, News International and its varying newspapers should be known as corporate media—media by the corporations, bought by unsuspecting consumers, and sales of as much crap as they can swallow on every channel and every page.

Ready to wake up yet? Sharing news stories does nothing to bring change; it maintains the current establishment in tip-top shape! Either nobody realises this at all, or they are happy with the current setup in this country. Is that the truth? Do we love this government so much that we refuse to look past the curtain and see that they are screwing us over at every turn? Can we not think critically and creatively?

It’s been said that to be sane in an insane world is another form of insanity. We are truly living in insane times. How many among us are prepared to be sane and proud?

If you really want to change this world, you need to act. You need to do something that will get people thinking. You need to shock, inflame and inspire others. You need to find people who feel the same way that you do about the current state of affairs. Educate yourself, think for yourself, rely on yourself. Spread that message to others and become a community of self-educated, self-thinking, self-reliant meritocrats. Continued compliance with the brain-numbing, soul-deadening system only reinforces the fact that you need that system, and you don’t. Some things you do need, but do you really need to know what’s going on in the lives of celebrities? Do you need a bank to look after your money? Do you need to spend £300 on food that you could make or grow yourself? Does the junk food help your body or does it just make you fatter? Does that £200 jacket make you a more successful person or does it just cover up a deeper need to feel worthwhile? Does the £120,000 mortgage make your life complete or does it just mean you’re paying a bank for 25 years for something that still technically isn’t yours?

It’s time to shake yourself awake. The Meritocracy International is up and running. If you don’t catch up with it in time to start or help build a Meritocracy Party near you, there’s a good chance you’ll be swept away by your own ignorance, humming the latest commercial jingle piped into your sad, soggy mind by your benevolent programmers.

I realised I was a Meritocrat in 2012 after becoming disillusioned with the world of materialism and asking several questions about its systems which never seemed to get any answers. I am now here to use my writing ability for the best possible causes, as well as learn more about myself in the process.
