Truthistic" & The Art Of Ignorance
By Kenneth Stepp
Creating new words to help us learn more about our country, religion, and who or what is running both. I hope you enjoy reading it, and perhaps open your mind just a little bit too.
Truthistic? Nope, you won't find that word in Websters Dictionary. It should be defined in a way that makes sense to the reader. So I will give it my best shot. Truthistic: The ability to believe a lie when one knows it is a lie.Truthistic defined. Feel better? Good. The word, or at least the ability is so that you can feel better.
The art of ignorance? Well, ignorance is an art because you have to skillfully bob and weave around truth to keep from getting any on you. To me, that is an art.
To me, truth and knowledge mean so much, Knowing is better than not knowing. When on desires ignorance over truth, it is a dangerous path for sure. Every genocide or war that ever was grew out of this.
Willful ignorance: The state and practice of ignoring any sensory input that appears to contradict one’s inner model of reality. At heart, it is almost certainly driven by "confirmation bias".
This particular type of ignorance differs from the standard definition of “ignorance“, which just means that one is unaware of something in that willfully ignorant people are fully aware of facts, resources and sources, but refuse to acknowledge them. Indeed, calling someone "ignorant" shouldn’t really be a pejorative, but intentional and willful ignorance is an entirely different matter. In practice though, the word "ignorance" has often come to mean "willful ignorance", and indeed, in many non-English languages, the word based on the same stem actually carries that meaning.
What I am finding is this happens mostly in two categories of a person's life. Their government and their religion. Being an American and understanding, at least understanding as much as possible with an open mind and limited access. We are plagued by a media that is completely owned by the corpocracy that pretty much runs everything in America. So we the people are fed the corporate agenda, no the news, reality, or truth. Just programming to be good little slaves.
Corporatocracy, in social theories that focus on conflicts and opposing interests within society, denotes a system of government that serves the interest of, and may de facto be run by, corporations and involves ties between government and business.
Why is it important to know rather than no know? Because a government that citizens do not hold accountable will always do awful things in their name. And a religion will teach things that will harm others if left unchecked or believed without questioned and investigated with an open mind.
Have you ever wondered why you believe what you believe? I have. It sent me on an amazing journey, I'm still on today. What I have learned about my government and my religion almost caught my head on fire.
My government is completely owned by global corporations. That includes our media. So all we receive from our media is the corporate agenda. Not real news. They sell us some pretty strange things.
They tell us who to hate. Muslims, whistleblowers, and middle east leaders. Why? So we have a big enough enemy to stay in a constant state of war. And hate the whistle blowers because they don't want us knowing this. War is not only profitable for these corporations, but they can steal the resources from the countries we invade. And resources are the only thing on the planet with real value. These corporations are part of a cartel that owns the central banks globally. So they can print all the money they want for nothing, and the people owe it back to them with interest. That's a pretty sweet deal. That debt enslaves the people, thus giving them more control.
Religion..... Touchy subject. But one thing I can tell you is if you open your mind, apply critical thinking, you will see that ALL organized religions are based on nothing other than their own teaching. Yet people will die defending their religion because "It's the only REAL truth". Man realizes there is a God. And almost always buys into whatever religion they were brought up in.
