Many of our ailments come from the fact that we are being ripped of our own will , gradually but maybe surely this is happening to us. The fact that we find ourselves at a loss and disoriented, not able to dispel the lies told to us, is due to the fact that the world order- after ripping us off our resources and after violating our rights, after usurping our environment and attempting at our efforts in communicating to each other, especially here on fb-, is now determined to confiscate our integrity.
The thing extremely dangerous about that is that the world order- not only wants to choose for us and is deciding for us on how to live our life, and what to study, and how and what to learn, and how and what to eat and drink, and how to express ourselves and where. But is also trying to disable this faculty of judgement and discernment that has been bestowed on us by God. This faculty is the tool using which we can discriminate truth from untruth and then- with God’s help- position our selves regarding various issues.
It is a fact that truth is becoming less and less accessible and evident , we find ourselves caught not only in a web of lies, but in so many webs where layers and layers of lies are found. This is the way by which the rising world order has been propagating itself since the invasion of America and even before. ; lies have been the sure way to acquire hegemony and commit crimes of different sorts. The white settlers lied about the Native Nations, they lied about religion, they lied to themselves and lied to others; they did not keep one single agreement from the more than three hundred agreements they signed with the natives.
The art of lying and deceiving has grown in proportion to the scientific and technical progress. With Iraq and Libya it reached a monumental size, the WMD are not so easily forgotten and after the lie was used for destroying a country. The states that were responsible for it were not held accountable and got away with it. This paved the way to more lies to come forth and not only this since the establishment -apprehending the fact that these lies might be revealed- anticipated the matter through Wikileaks and other media channels, and started putting into circulation official documents and correspondence regarding a certain matter for the purpose of claiming a role distant from the crime and distorting and destroying the experience of the masses and the accumulation of their memory regarding that matter.
Deceiving people in addressing the desire for freedom and liberation, and people’s hunger for justice and longing for free objective and professional media, the world order manipulated and let loose the repressed masses unleashing them and controlling them -at the same time -by the media and NGOs just as a skilled horseman lets his horse go while holding the reins. Not only we have been cheated by all these so called “Spring Revolutions”, but we have even shown complacency to these lies, we applauded these “Springs” and acclaimed them seeing in them a true birth instead of mere manipulations .
The world order has put us in the position of passivity and have disabled our faculties, seeking not only to confiscate power but also to take hold the whole of society and disable it. We watched al Jazeera for ten years before discovering what it was, ten years of daily watching and admiring and catering to, ten years turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the hosting of Israelis, to the intended black out on the Qatari/Israeli relations, to the anti Syrian propaganda that started very early, to the lies of al Qaradawi, until the lie became so blatant to the point that we could not put up with it anymore.
Definitely there is something wrong within us, our will has been hijacked for sure, and our initiative taken and we are to become subject to more deceit and lies if we do not do something about it very soon. This will, this freedom, this initiative, this strength, we should retrieve entirely in order not to remain subject to lies and deceits. We should retrieve our own selves. We should acquire this self confidence in our own sound judgment and in the partnership of our fellow humans, we should nurture it and feed it so that it becomes fit to win the battle over lies and deceits and over the world conspiracy that seeks to eliminate us as integral human beings. There is no other way i can think of to win this battle.
