'The Social Dilemma' Documentary is an excellent example of carefully fabricated bits and bobs, mixing true danger and myths in an exact amount to manipulate you into a hidden agenda.
On one hand it draws attention to the addiction, which is triggered and caused by those social platforms, showing how people are getting under its influence how it modifies their personality for the worse.
On the other hand it labels critical thinking and different perspectives as the sin of society. And here is the point where I would stop and separate facts and fictions.
Yes, it is addictive and it can effect the psyche and especially towards kids and young adults it can be quite dangerous. It is also a high level commercial platform with a designed algorithm. It is AI, the brain, the logic. In an energetical code, this is the masculine logical part.
But life is about balance and heart and brain need to be balanced. One can not exist without the other. Yin and Yang always work together and complete each other, the same way as conscious and unconscious.
It was predictable that as soon as the social platforms get out to the public, it would find its on way and sooner or later the shadow-self will wink in. The overreacted surprise showed by the CEO in the documentary about the fact that it got out of their hands deserves an Oscar specially the part how they try to pass over their responsibility.
Since humanity exists on Earth, there were always conflicts, different perspectives, revolutions, demonstrations, bullies. Social media did not invent these things, it just highlighted them and speeded them up. Those conflicts and revolutions are the birthing places for development. We need those different ideas what challenging the status-co in order to move forward. Stigmatizing it as misinformation shows either lack of understanding of the working psyche or carefully manipulating force in action.
What is misinformation and why it is so threating to who and for what?
Not so long ago in Canada, group of people who believed that they still have the freedom to decide about their own life and have the right to decide over their body stood up to raise their voice. They used social media and they managed to draw attention to a real threat just like Martin Luther King did long time ago.
But their own PM labeled them as the 'fringe minority with unacceptable view' and started to use methods of dictatorship in order to cut them down.
My question is: What kind of world these PMs want to create where there would have no chance to challenge ruling ideology and there would have no chance to express other perspectives?
Or what if we change the ruling perspective and check behind the scene and see it for what it truly is: a different 'fringe minority' on the top, who is threatened of losing control.
Social media is highly addictive and can alter brain-patterns and shorten the ability of holding attention and focus. It has several negative aspects but also it has something else. It can be a tool to express different points of view.
What if I tell you that first time in history, you have the chance to turn the table?
What if we start to create values such as harmony, unity, love and acceptance and inject back in to the Matrix?
Lets give it a try and lets see what happens then.
