You might think because there are a lot of smart people on the ‘right’, that their version of the truth is just as legitimate. But that’s poppycock. Plenty of smart people are ignorant, this is because for them the truth doesn’t come first. Their personal and tribal narratives do. They contort all their information around their narratives of the world. Just because you’re a clever clogs does not make you more true or honest. These smart idiots are good at creating clever and intelligent sounding but ultimately false narratives that all the people who don’t really think for themselves can get behind. The right are for the most part wrong, but they also have big muscles and are funded by deep self-serving pockets. So in summation, we’re all fucked.
Humanity won’t survive if the rich elite can’t start being honest with themselves and allow honesty to be the underpinnings of our discourse.
One good thought is worth a fortune in the right head.
Move toward your truest values and not just those you lean on to take advantage.
Being real means showing who you are, not what you think what others want you to be. Being real means being in the moment without trying to impress. Being real means being vulnerable. Being real means telling it how it is.
