Sex, Lie and Videotapes
OK, to be perfectly honest—and honesty, truth and reality is what this article is about—it has nothing whatsoever to do with sex. But it’s a making a real quick point that is people have hidden the “cheese”—the money, the material resources, the important truths of life. And they are directing our attention away from the things of value in life by pushing these subconscious and emotional buttons. It is about lies and videotapes because the essence of their message is lies and the visual, audio and social media are the vehicles they are using in their scheme.
Allah (G-d) asks the question: Who has denied my servants the good things of the earth? In this context He doesn’t ask, “Who has denied my servants the starry crown of heaven? He asks who is denying the good people, the good things of the earth. It is deniers and liars.
This time in man’s history is called the Day of Accounting. It’s also sometimes referred to as the Day of Separation and most commonly called the Day of Judgment. In an accounting, we identify assets and liabilities—what we have and what we owe. We separate the things of value from those negative and come up with a balance sheet. And then we make a judgment on the health of our finances.
The problem arises when we have been deceived as to the value of things. If our skin color is more important than our human content, we’re going to come up with inaccurate accounting. If you don’t have the discernment to judge between truth and falsehood, between reality and unreality, between what’s important and what’s trivial, you’re going to come up with an inaccurate accounting.
Thus today you have a small group, the 1% if you will, who are controlling all the resources—they’re hiding them in corporate inversions, off shore accounts, bankruptcy schedules, unpaid debts and conspicuous consumption. They keep the resources hidden by keeping the masses focused on lies, unreal Reality shows, and delusions.
The political dialogue today is a perfect example of what it would be like living in a world of data but no facts. I point out in my book that we are living in a time where the public has become addicted to information, not necessarily truth, not necessarily facts, but just information. Look at the people who scientists are now calling “digital dead walkers,” who have walked into oncoming traffic and walked off of cliffs, while glued to their PDAs.
“Look at the condition of the general population, with access to more information than ever before in history. Only one in four (¼) Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, but more than one-half (½) can name at least two members of the Simpson’s cartoon family. 22% of Americans can name all five Simpson family members compared to 1 in 1000 who could name all five (5) First Amendment rights. A 2012 national survey by FindLaw.com, a legal information website, found that nearly two-thirds of Americans are unable to name any of the nine members of the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1985, Andrew Postman, in his book Amusing Ourselves to Death, made this point: “TV is turning all public life (education, religion, politics, journalism) into entertainment; how the image is undermining other forms of communication, particularly the written word; and how our bottomless appetite for TV will make content so abundantly available, content be damned, we’ll be overwhelmed by “information glut” until what is truly meaningful is lost and we no longer care what we’ve lost as long as we’re being amused.” Yes, I Am Your Brother, Nuri Madina
This was written 30 years ago, before the digital revolution and the explosion of even more vehicles for the flow of information. But as Postman points out, the time coming will be one in which the public won’t care about the truth or the value of the information.
Allah (G-d) speaks of just such a time when mankind will be lost, except those who promote Truth and Reality. Look at the great percentages of people who have been fed conspiracy theories by Fox (Faux) News and the National Enquirer over the years and the information has now become accepted as truth. It’s no surprise that this is the same demographic that is now feeling powerless, disaffected and angry. They have fed their emotional body and starved their rational body. In the real world, as opposed to their alt-right surreal construct, they are indeed threatened—not by anyone coming and taking away their guns or by hoards of immigrants, Muslims, of African American. They are threatened by their own choices. The name of the game is survival of the fittest—the fittest homo sapiens or thinking man-not the fittest brute.
