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.
When I tell you to be a local voter what do you think? Maybe its literally going out there and putting a ballot in the box. You would be on the right track but I want you to think deeper. We as a people living in a country where the Presidential election becomes the biggest celebrity event. We keep hearing about the last president we elected and why he’s ruining the country. You have to think deeper than that a local vote can help change things for you where you are at. Most likely at a faster rate. We see the president more often than the local candidates. The President is seen doing everything from looking at the sun to getting a free pizza at Denny’s. This makes it seem more personal. The local candidates are barely given any media time. We have to go searching them out or they come to our door at a time when we don’t answer doors for strangers leaving a flyer that ends up in the trash. This is most of us in our daily lives. Our bodies tell us to avoid certain things but we keep ignoring it til it makes us pay a doctor millions of dollars for something that could have been handled immediately. The local politician works closer to you. They live in your community. You have driven by them countless times going to work. You probably couldn’t list 3 local politicians right now. The one’s that handle your tax rates and where your taxes go. Be a local voter in your life. It will change your life. Deal with what is going on right in front of you. Then expand from there. Be your own advocate! Build your dream and make it a reality. The Ark wasn’t built in a day. Moses wasn’t told to hop in God’s hands and he would carry his people to the promise land. It took them a long time. Stop looking for instant gratification and build. Put that first brick down. Do the research for the foundation you need. BE YOUR LOCAL VOTER!!
