Sanity within insanity

Our perspective towards many different aspect of life has been moulded by the giant capitalist companies. Therefore when you try to swim against the current people will view you as an idiot- but what they don't see at the end of the river will be the plunge going down to the raging water that will inevitably bring death to anyone.
Capitalist system makes us stop thinking what is best for us. The mass control is what the father of public relation Edward Bernays did to make us consume almost every propaganda that they want us to believe.
Sure enough freedom of choice and expression has become the cliche of the modern world. However what we are keen to voice is also the result of what this capitalists has formed in our mind at the first place. Take one example regarding what Ed Bernays did to manipulate and trigger the first so-called freedom of choice in the society.
In order to penetrate the women market for cigarette in 1920s Bernays masterminded a movement for women 'rights'. Women were given perception they too can be like their men counterpart. A distinguishing feature belonged to men were challenged by this so called rights group. Women for the first time smoke in public and this has helped cigarette company to boost their sale.
This would be one of many other examples we could find if we are eager to seek for the truth and mind you this fine example was accomplished more than 80 years ago. Within 80 years time frame a lot of deceits and damages would have been accomplished.
So the question now is what would be the basis of thought for an absolute freedom of choice and expression- free from the influence of materialism, capitalism and any other corrupt practices in the world?
Turn off the TV and the radio. Stop buying entertainment/infotainment magazines of any sorts. Reflect on the world, the current banking system, the politics and the most important element- The purpose of our existence in the world.
And then think. The process will not be short. It will take years and perhaps a lifetime to know ourselves. Don't simply believe of what the mainstream media told us. Most of the time the reverse might be correct.
At the end of the day, no matter whether we are a muslim, Christian, Jew, Buddhist or atheist will find the truest source of life and ready to answer the very question ourselves- Am I part of the bluff? And we are capable enough to answer the question, make our choice and ready to swim against the torrent.

Love this statement.We already living in it in our country long enough.Sadly many of us refuse to believe it or at least think about it.
