Re: Why are the masses so unwashed??
Would you mind watching the videos Žnow and answering my wall of text and giving your take on it?
Christ, you really are a sheep aren't you? So some dude that beleives that major leaders are lizards and all our stuff is only in our imagination is the "truth"? Holy fuck you are quite dumb aren't you? No wonder all those guys busted your chops over conspiracies, do us all a favor and stop paying for internet.
Well someone has to know the truth. Although what you wrote is still a fraction of the truth. Truth is much larger than words.
I knew you were the smart one around here.
Matrix is a brilliant movie.
just one question
what makes you think youre enlightened? what makes you think you're above others? what makes you think youre better than everyone? that youre the genius who just discovered youtube and all of a sudden is a brilliant 21st century philosopher?
i cant believe youre using the matrix as your 'enlightening' source of information. the matrix trilogy, an immensely commercial movie franchise produced by hollywood, written by two guys who ripped off Grant Morrison, cyberpunk themes and more importantly Descartes? if you're gonna atleast get stupified by a piece of art, atleast emphasise the original groundbreaking source by descartes which more or less has been criticised and deconstructed by EVERY MAJOR PHILOSOPHER ever since the text was written
and another thing, the whole concept of 'knowing' is completely and utterly relative. you see yourself as 'enlightened', do you realise how pitiful, how small, how insignificant you are in the grand scheme of things? for starters, what are you contributing to the world captain 'i suddenly know everything and must act like a know it all'? you 'understand' how the world works? wonderful! then go make the world a better place instead of talking down to everyone
relative to the truly great minds. the artists, the philosophers, the scientists, the scientists, the men truly pushing humanity, art and cuture forward. how would you feel if they were to stop by the thread and start laughing at you?
"oh, this little guy thinks the matrix is a brilliant movie. thats so cute. i remember when i thought that when i was 7, before i went to MIT, got a job at the LHC and found the higgs boson". What gives YOU the right to look down on other people? Nobody has the right to look down on someone else, part of the human condition is making our own mistakes and improving ourselves
Socrates, an absolutely brilliant man, the founder of western philosophy. One of the smartest, most groundbreaking minds to ever live and quite possibly the architect of modern thought and western civilisation once said: "I know one thing, that I know nothing"
And somehow you find yourself 'enlightened'?
He's not looking down on anyone. Just giving his take and if you're not part of people he describes in OP you have nothing to fear but seeing how aggressively you people react it truly a sign that he makes statements that you don't want to hear.
But if you can think for yourself there is no reason to be threatened by his post. In the end of the day he describes lost causes. About people who could care less about having a solid discussion like this.
Now that is the root of the problem.
