How to ensure 2021 is a better year than this one:

‘Be scared’

‘Live in fear’

‘Here’s why the other side are wrong and why they should be silenced’

‘Mob mentality is ok and supported’

All mentioned has been the result of a concerted effort to keep the people in a state of perpetual fear and division. The tendency to “divide and conquer” has never been so overtly manifest in peace-time. An easy and effective means to ensure 2021 is a better year: turn off your TV. Disengage from the toxic media programming and you will assuredly have increased inner peace and tranquillity. Yes, engage in debate, yes be up to speed on the most important issues in our time, yes seek knowledge, but learn to discern between those outlets which are reliable and those which have vested interest in keeping you in a state of fear and disturbance. Seek primary sources, instead of secondary interpretations subject to manipulation and deceit, listen to professionals who are unbiased and credible thinkers on a given topic not those in the pocket of big business who do not see propagation of the truth as a worthwhile end.
