Better living thru knowledge! According to the dictionary Knowledge is the psychological result of perception and learning and reasoning. The major threats to knowledge are fear and guilt. Since knowledge requires mental and emotional understanding, those seeking to cloud your perception will target your emotions by using fear of a subject or creating feelings of guilt if you think differently. Rather than using logic and reason, distractions come in packages of sound bite trigger words. Fear and guilt rob you of your freedom. Freedom is your ability to think, to analyze, to determine, and to be comfortable with whom you are.
Under the guise of political rhetoric or editorial commentary, truth loses its rights. When you are listening to messages and they invoke feelings of fear or guilt, be careful, you are being propagandized. Think about the situation, and then decide. Ultimately you are the one who suffers the consequences of supporting parochial agendas.
