I am currently drawn to look at websites and documents which appear too expose the truth about the current world position. These sites contain information which isn’t normally accessible through establishment sites and pages. This has lead to me picking up a lot of different ideas on the way the world is run and the way it should be run.

I don’t go and read news websites like BBC News and CNN because these sites are set up to feed you with useless information jazzed up to seem important. 

The constant changing news is a trick to stop you thinking or researching real, detailed and significant content which actually expands our knowledge and understanding of different subjects. If you think about it news sites leave you with no short term memory, for instance if we were asked to recall the headlines from a previous day most of us would fail to remember. This is because we are bombarded with numerous topics which even if they could relate to each other are presented as individual and unique stories.  The BBC News Front page breaks down to fourteen different categories with at least seven headlines for each part. That's 98 possible to stories for us to take in which is a high number and most of these stories aren't really important but are fleeting bits of current affairs. If we are only absorbing the constant changing and rehashed news pieces we have no space in our brain to absorb real information which can increase our knowledge and insight. This stops us from thinking because we just lazily accept the cannon fodder served to and don’t actually use our brains to engage and research real topics like conspiracy theories and alternative opinions on an enormous range of topics. We don’t learn anything new because the news stories are in truth irrelevant to our real life’s and you can't apply the vast majority of the information into improving your life.

We don’t need to access the predictable and similar sites because their is a wealth of information and facts out their detailed in less popular domains. 

If you really want to learn something then all you have to do is search for it and you will come up with a lot of different places which give you relevant content so you can use more than one source to confirm the facts, all you have to do is think about what you are learning and use your discernment in choosing the source of information.

A website I use to increase my knowledge is Stumble upon, this site provides you with access to lots of different types of web pages, the information is varied and you will find pages you otherwise wouldn’t have done.

I also like to read the Wikipedia site because this explains topics and subjects in detail.

In conclusion we don’t have to be submissive uninvolved slaves to items and pieces of news that don’t really mean much or will retain any importance to our way of life’s but can become free thinker's and students of information.  Instead of just processing multiple items of instantly forgettable information which means nothing we can instead educate ourselves with content which would expand or minds and learn us something which we shouldn't  ignore.

Thank you and God Bless,
