.@NewYorker You are owned by the Banking Cartel and cannot see the writing on the wall: https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/Twitter22.214.171.124.pdf
If you need graphics, the New Yorker should use Rembrandt’s picture of Belshazzar.
Elizabeth Colbert, in her article trying to get us to doubt our ability to think, is hoping against hope that we will forget that the New Yorker is owned by the Network of Global Corporate Control. Her other point? That we are so weak in the head that we simply need to get on with it, go with the flow, and live with Donald Trump, because we can’t think straight.
Elizabeth Colbert is wrong.
Colbert has not made us forget Charlotte Iserbyt.
We also remember George Carlin, and some of us remain critical thinkers, despite Elizabeth Colbert: As Carlin said, “Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the
corporations that’ve long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back
pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them.”
Some teachers can still convince us of the real value of teaching psychology students to think critically. After some heated discussion, the last word was had by one psychology teacher from North Carolina. “The real value of being a good critical thinker in psychology is so you won’t be a jerk,” he said with a smile. That observation remains one of my favorites in justifying why teaching critical thinking skills should be an important goal in psychology. However, I believe it captures only a fraction of the real value of teaching students to think critically about behavior.
Critical thinking is essential if we are to get to the root of our problems and develop reasonable solutions. After all, the quality of everything we do is determined by the quality of our thinking.
The bottom line: the man with an anchor around his head is not a picture of us. We do not accept martial law, or for that matter, Donald Trump, the Banking Cartel’s agent trying provoke us into civil unrest, while the military unilaterally surrenders the United States, and crashes the Federal Reserve Note. The Banking Cartel has the anchor-head and is unable to think straight or see the clear writing on the wall.
WHY FACTS DON’T CHANGE OUR MINDS
New discoveries about the human mind show the limitations of reason.
