Take a moment and think about the things you repeatedly indulge into. Then think about the way you make your decisions.
Mass media is a powerful force that is used to control your thinking. Because of the way our brain works, they target the part that is damn near impossible to logically control. It’s done to slip your brain into autopilot. Because he who does not control their thinking, does not control their life. He who cannot think for themselves, someone will do the thinking for you.
The people you praise on television and in the music industry has a ceiling. Other than the Jay-Z’s, Beyonce’s, and Oprah’s, the others have to comply to the people who sit at the top of those industries or they will not get paid. It’s the reason why Kanye when crazy on Sway during his interview when speaking about his deal with Nike and the clothing line that fell through. “Don’t marginalize me,” is what he kept saying.
Marginalize (mar·gin·al·ize) transitive verb \ˈmärj-nə-ˌlīz, ˈmär-jə-nəl-ˌīz\. : to put or keep (someone) in a powerless or unimportant position within a society or group. If you haven’t seen it go to Youtube. Stay focused. Out of everything that is being talked about in the interview, really catch the just of what Kanye is saying. 17:16 minutes.
Take control of your mind. The bible says, train up a child in a way that he should go and he will NEVER depart from it. The television and music that your child is engaged into, is more powerful than you are, Mommy and Daddy. It’s directly targeting the part of the brain I spoke about above. The same is being done to you the minute you turn your television on. Including the news! Take control of your mind. Someone is telling you how to think, and this whole time you thought it was you.
Isn’t it crazy? You gotta buy your own freedom in America.
