ECONOMIC REALITY PEER THROUGH THE ILLUSION
This is the second adapted excerpt in a series from my new book, FREEDOM IN A TIME OF MENTAL SLAVERY. You can read the first part here.
When I was reporting on economic issues and went deep into how much wealth there truly is, it was shocking. Shocking is an understatement. It was a mind blowing, reality shattering, worldview altering, and ultimately, a transformative, life-giving experience. I began to see how unnecessarily oppressive society is. Once you cut through the technocratic propaganda, peer through the illusion and understand economic reality, once you truly comprehend how much wealth there is, there is no turning back. That was the red pill that made me exit the matrix and realize the enslavement of the masses. That’s what made me fully realize my own enslavement.
I then began to intensely question how it is possible that there is such a stunning, unprecedented abundance of wealth, and at the same time so much economic stress, insecurity and poverty. As you will see, it clearly doesn’t have to be this way. The current economic system is counterproductive. It is doing much more to limit human potential than enhance it. Current conditions are not a natural or inevitable outcome of human relations, far from it. Make no mistake; there are psychological forces that are systematically enslaving us. As harsh and extreme as it may sound, we live in a time of mental slavery.
