Propaganda comes in many forms! Propaganda can be the show you watched where all the rich people have a heart of gold. It could be the show about a leader which only shows one part of their life but leave out all the bad or progressive stuff. I believe many of us have been victims of propaganda. When we mistreat each other because we have been told to think of each other or if you see your friend of a different race as “one of the good ones” You Are A Victim of Propaganda. If you see yourself as “one of the good ones” You Are A Victim of Propaganda. Propaganda is defined as especially bias or misleading information used to promote a cause or point of view. Propaganda can be “your not the solution to your life, We ARE!”. Propaganda is very detrimental to us as human beings and wishes for us to not think critically of it.
In my book Powerfuls I go in depth about thinking critically. Even in school I have had to look outside the class and the text. Question everything given to you it could be a poison hidden in a good meal.
One of my crazy stories is when I first came back to my hometown after traveling the world. I went to a local bar to observe the local scene to see where I fit. I talk with the friendly bartender and waiters and more of the locals in the bar. When I drink my water at the end of the bar I start feeling people touching me. I turn around and its a random caucasian couple just touching me on my arms, chest and back. When I asked what was their problem. They told me to lighten up it’s just a joke.
The lesson I learned is A Person Will Never Tell You They Are Mistreating YOU!
Writing is a Gods Game! You can create or recreate yours and others lives anyway you want. You can be the successful millionaire or the homeless person with a genius intellect. You can be the protector of your city or destroy it in one swoop of a pen. Your enemies do not have a gray area. You can make them all bad people with evil in their heart. We can make our failures our greatest success. This is The God’s game of writing. This is power you need to keep in your hands. When you lose the gift to create your own story. It goes in the hands of your enemies and people who never knew you. They will get the story from their perspective from their reality of you. You could be the softest teddy bear but they will remember you for the time your eye hit their tooth. This will make you seem like the worst person in the world. They will remember all your failings not the success you brought to yourself and others. This is the fault of social media. We let outsiders see all our inner thoughts and share ratchet memes with each other. These ratchet memes broadly paint us as paranoid love hurt people. When attention became currency big egos became god. The people you may not have said hi to because you are shy. Will see you as stuck up. The world of perspectives is a crazy game.
Let’s learn how to communicate properly and tell our stories before it’s too late!
1. Unwarranted nicknames- Nicknames are the best way to make you a pet. Lets make some context. Lets say you have just started a job and you stay to yourself. You do not make work friends or have conversations about non work related things. Then one of your associates wants to name you. This is called name calling. They want to make you a pet. This is something I have personally dealt with. I was renamed hearnsey for 1 year out of my life because I was seen as a pet. I never really spoke to the guy who renamed me but was renamed because he didn’t want to see me as human.
2. Mistreated for no reason- You have not done anything that anyone else hasn’t done but you get mistreated to the highest level. You get called every name. You have many false rumors made about you and get touched by everyone. They feel they are entitled to pet you because you are their pet. They need you to be a punching bag for their plight. You are there to be their play thing.
3. Never properly trained- This goes for anything including School, Life, or Work. These people see you as their problem and never want you to succeed. The best way to keep you as the pet/entertainment is to never properly train you. You are here to make a difference but you have to train yourself.
4. Told jokes in bad taste- This goes with being mistreated. These “jokes” are made to keep you off your game. They will tell you a joke like “What do you call a night in Chicago? Kill a nigga!” Then expect you to laugh about it. When you don’t, you will get touched and told to have a sense of humor. This is how a pet is treated.
5. Never given real solutions- This goes hand in hand with not being properly trained. If you have solutions for small problems,then you can make a solution for them to stop mistreating you. Then you can be human and not a pet.
6.You are told to do the wrong thing then given you all the blame for doing it- You being there is their problem. They will tell you to do the wrong thing then not take the blame for telling you to do it. This will keep you off their scent and make you the problem.
7. You’re given the table scraps- You are given the worst of the benefits. They will give everyone the benefits you are supposed to receive. Then give you the worst of the benefits. Then tell you you are equally at the table. When you are under the table begging.
8.You are to deal with what is normally taken care of by them- When you are mistreated it is natural and natural law to stand up for yourself. The people who see you as a pet see you standing up for yourself as a misbehaving pet. The things they would stand up to. The pet should take.
9.Everyday becomes an interrogation- The pet must be asked every question in the book. They say this is the best way to get to know you. Watch their numbers become very personal. Like your parents jobs or how many kids do you have. These are made to mistreat you in the future.
10. your accomplishments are minimized- You could climb Mount Everest but to them you climbed an anthill. They are your enemy and they never want you to have anything.
11. They want to control you- You are their pet.
At a very early age my father abandoned me and we were just me, my mother and my sister. For economic reasons my mom had to go to work away and left us with my grandmother who is like a second mother to us or almost the first one, because she is the one who was always there for us, my mom only saw her once a month and Sometimes not, when I was growing up I got used to it but after a while my mom got a job nearby and could be with us every day as expected. I fell in love with a boy with whom I lasted 4 years and was unfaithful to me. Another woman who became pregnant with him and ended that relationship when I realized, my mother had a husband who was very bad and made her suffer a lot but that relationship and that relationship ended. Due to what happened with my previous relationship it has been difficult for me to trust someone else but over time I have overcome it Now I just try to improve myself and continue studying and working to have a better future, a better life and give my mother and my grandmother the best.
Privilege? I’ve only heard about it. How it does good and bad for the world? Never experienced it first hand. That made me feel as if money had to be my main focus in life, seeing the other girls come from supportive homes. Little did I know about the sacrifice, being stable came with. Sometimes in life , we get so wrapped in what other people have that you don’t stop to think what they are also missing – you might not. Being humble is a word that can be used so lightly and rarely is put into action. Due to the “lack” of things I wasn’t able to have growing up has made me into someone insightful. I don’t look at things the same. I stop and appreciate everything. From waking up in the morning and the gas in my tank to heading to the gym. Then from the gym to work. Then from work to a quiet place to work on my real dreams. Now , you might ask “ what are those?” I’ll tell you. Dreams are made of the things that make you truly happy. The things you don’thave to second guess. Mind you, I am not talking about money, cars, or fancy houses. I mean real dreams . Peace, Tranquilty, Family, Love, Care and Compassion. I want to be human and live , learn and maybe hurt to heal. Everyone has a different dream they want to achieve . But thanks to the humility I’ve experienced I can look at my goal with clarity and not with greed or a sense of vengeance. When things have gone terribly wrong for me, I do the following. Assess. There is a solution to everything. Up to you to let it happen and watch the demise of something you care about. Yet, on the other hand you can make it happen on your own. I am simple. I don’t like asking for too much if not a necessity. Keeping clear of a cluttered mind is helpful in the art of humility. Don’t ever over think anything. 99% of the time the answer is staring at us in our face. So, the next time you feel doubt is robbing you . Reject that feeling and be grateful for what you have now. Being present is my biggest lesson learned , and thus far my most favorite.I was so stuck in the past that i couldn’t see how bright my future really is. Every day is a stepping stone, don’t miss . Arrogance blinds the real motive. Be Humble and all you’ve ever wanted will be there to set you free.
Thank you for the contribution Lin!

“Deceptiveness is not intelligence”-Durrell Hearns
In today’s world deceptiveness is seen as a sign of intellect. I would disagree with this notion because the most deceptive can be outsmarted. Deceptive behavior is a base form of survival. It is on the same level as reproduction or eating. Deceptiveness was used by the shelter less human as a way to get more food or resources for themselves. They did not have to be intelligent to be deceptive. Deceptiveness is a the betrayal of cultivation. This is why deceptive people love to have food given to them. You cannot deceive the ground to give you food right now. Deceptive people can’t put a drop of water on a seed and never plant it or till the soil and expect the rewards to be bountiful. This is why deceptiveness is not intelligence. Intelligence knows how to plan, research, and execute. This separates the two. The deceiver would rather research you than the subject. They will forever want what you have. Even if it’s a crumb more than they have. Deception shows low intellect. It shows a fear of accountability and the want to be constantly on the run. Deception makes you watch your back in a safe place. You will not focus on the task if you are not watching your back. The intelligent know to look and plan forward. They don’t get lucky. The intelligent know the result and multiple ways to get to it. They don’t have to lie, cheat, or steal! They know to be the hardworking prepared ant and not the lazy complacent grasshopper. The grasshopper would try to deceive an ant to give it food. Then starve the whole winter.
Vick Teen had always loved crowded Falmouth with its resonant, raspy rivers. It was a place where he felt lonely.
He was a courageous, witty, port drinker with grubby legs and greasy spots. His friends saw him as a clumsy, cold carer. Once, he had even jumped into a river and saved a wet deaf person. That’s the sort of man he was.
Vick walked over to the window and reflected on his magical surroundings. The moon shone like jumping giraffes.
Then he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure of Lisa Dung. Lisa was a deranged animal with fragile legs and sloppy spots.
Vick gulped. He was not prepared for Lisa.
As Vick stepped outside and Lisa came closer, he could see the bored smile on his face.
Lisa gazed with the affection of 756 brave powerful pigeons. He said, in hushed tones, “I love you and I want Money.”
Vick looked back, even more angry and still fingering the enchanted record. “Lisa, freedom,” he replied.
They looked at each other with worried feelings, like two obnoxious, obedient ostriches thinking at a very thoughtful bar mitzvah, which had trance music playing in the background and two thoughtful uncles running to the beat.
Vick regarded Lisa’s fragile legs and sloppy spots. “I feel the same way!” revealed Vick with a delighted grin.
Lisa looked surprised, his emotions blushing like a shy, slobbering sausage.
The world has a fear of the uncontrollable self respecting person. They fear the unpredictability of them and the fact they will stand up for themselves and others. More people must adapt to this attitude. Keep your captors guessing and they will stay off of you. The Powerful know when to wear the leash and when not to wear the leash. The complacent keep the leash on because it has “benefits”. These are five things self respecting people don’t do. Learn how to avoid these tendencies and watch your life improve.
Mumble- Mumbling is a defense mechanism which muffles our powerful words. The powerful words that can change the world in a day. NEVER MUMBLE AND SPEAK CLEARLY. THIS IS CALLED EFFECTIVE SPEAKING!
Look down- The habit of looking down when confronted is detrimental and not effective. Looking down takes your opponent out of your sight. Which will make it easy for them to attack you. The eye contact can also divert a predator. This shows them you Have no FEAR!
Let all things slide- Letting all things slide is one of the worst things you can do. This means you see your life as trivial. The triviality of your life means you feel your time on this world is not important to you. This means your time isn’t important to your fellow human. YOU ARE IMPORTANT! ACT LIKE IT!
Let others walk over them- This is self explanatory. When you have self-respect, others must respect you. It is up to you to set a standard of how people will treat you. This standard not be given to you. Setting and keeping the standard will take effort and love of self. When we don’t see value in ourselves it makes us the the dirtiest rug in the house. We become dingy and unclean. This is why self-respecting people are the rug we were told never to step on. EVER or we would face punishment. This is how holding your standard works. Punish those who go against your standard. You deserve to never be walked on.
Never Improve- “Those who never improve are destined to fail repeatedly and are led into insanity”- Durrell Hearns.
When you never improve it shows you do not value your life. You love the feeling of pain and the bottom of the barrel. You’ll hate watching others advance because they value themselves. The elders of yesteryear bettered themselves to be influential in the future. The ones who got old with no influence. Got comfortable and wanted to fit in. Be the difference. Always be IMPROVING!!
