- The Facts: Facebook is trying to convince us that it has learned from its mistakes and wants to ‘return’ to being simply an application that serves to unite ‘friends’.
- Reflect On: Does John Oliver’s mockery of this Facebook initiative exemplify the growing discernment of an awakening collective?
If you have been in and around conscious media, even for just a short time, what I am about to say should not come as a surprise to you: the ‘revolution’ has begun. I put the term in quotations, because it is actually more of an evolution that is happening, though not one where we are waiting passively until nature randomly adds components to our brain so that we can gain higher awareness. We are now reaching for that higher awareness by our own volition, and we are consciously driving this Collective Evolution forward.
In growing numbers, we are rejecting what we once accepted, sounding alarm bells on that which we used to quietly condone, and shedding light on those things we previously left in the dark. This is an evolution culminating in the mass awakening going on right now, where a discernment between what is true and what is false that has slowly been honed and sharpened over time will be thrust into the fray at this very moment in history.
We Are The Sleeping Giant Awakening
This is an awakening that one could say in some form has been in the works for years, decades, centuries, and indeed, for all of human history. For we are in the process of making the grand shift from ‘being told what to do’ to realizing that we have the power and capacity to decide for ourselves.
For the ruling elite, this is an obvious sign of trouble. Credit Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S. National Security Advisor and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, for recognizing almost a decade ago the widespread awakening that was going on:
“For the first time in human history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive… The resulting global political activism is generating a surge in the quest for personal dignity, cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world painfully scarred by memories of centuries-long alien colonial or imperial domination… [The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might be greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.”
Now, what has this got to do with a popular comedy show host tearing a strip off of Facebook? When I saw the video clip below from John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight,’ it felt like a signpost on our long journey that needed to be highlighted. Perhaps it was Oliver’s curt initial two-word rebuke of a sugary-sweet Facebook commercial, which pretends that Mark Z. and company have seen the error of their ways and will return Facebook to the fantasy company we used to imagine it to be (but never was); it struck me as the bold, jubilant mockery of the awakening collective.
We can see so clearly now the ways and means by which we have been duped for so long. The skill and craftiness, the time and effort that has gone on to deceive us and continue to funnel us down a path of immoral self-indulgence, distraction, and enslavement. Brzezinski is probably right — it’s gotten easier to kill us than to fool us.
But let us keep our enthusiasm in check for now. There’s still a lot of work to do. The first thing to note is that John Oliver, as provocative a voice as he may be, is still a part of the omni-tentacled mainstream media agglomeration. His ability to voice his commentary rests on the agenda of higher-ups and ultimately the ruling elite, and his anchor seat at ‘Last Week Tonight’ will be pulled out from him in a heartbeat if he ever dares to try to provide information deemed ‘taboo’ by those in power.
That is why independent conscious media, whose fundamental objective is to uncover and reveal the truth in its purest forms possible, is so critical at this time. The success of this evolution will be founded on our willingness to look inside of ourselves and continue to refine our understanding of what is true and what is false, what is light and what is darkness, what serves and what does not serve the collective. And if we are up for that challenge, we will yet one day rejoice together in cries of victory.
