Why Some People Can’t Wake From Cognitive Slumber

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.”

Winston Churchill

In the age of information, there is an ever increasing, almost incomprehensible amount of content created every single day. In relation to critically important events and topics, most of the heavy lifting has already been done for us by independent, intelligent alternative media sources (drudgereport.com infowars.com zerohedge.com globalresearch.ca) It is there for us to consume, chew, and ultimately decide whether to swallow or spit out. So I ask you; why do even the brightest men and women have their head in the sand?

NORMALCY BIAS

“People with a normalcy bias have difficulty reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation”. Sound familiar?

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE (Belief disconfirmation paradigm)

Dissonance is aroused when people are confronted with information that is inconsistent with their beliefs. If the dissonance is not reduced by changing one’s belief, the dissonance can result in restoring consonance through misconception, rejection or refutation of the information, seeking support from others who share the beliefs, and attempting to persuade others”. Again, sound familiar? This explains perfectly why I experience such resistance and thoughtless rejection to some very important concepts I elucidate.

DECISION: IGNORANCE OR KNOWLEDGE?

Whether a combination of apathy, laziness, normalcy bias, cognitive dissonance, ignorance, one thing is certain. If you choose the head in the sand model, basically representing the blue pill, then you choose ignorance. IGNORANCE IS FUTILE. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. Perhaps it all comes down to mental fortitude?

  1. Thankfully my family is awake and aware. I wish I could say the same for most of the other people I come in contact with daily. I would classify them as willfully ignorant. They just don’t want to hear it. I can’t lie. There are times I wish I were one of them. Being blissfully ignorant sure is a lot less stressful 😉

  2. “Tyranny is a phenomenon that operates by principles by which it can be recognized in its early emerging stages, and – if the people are vigilant, prepared, and committed to liberty – countered before it becomes entrenched.” ~Jon Roland

    “In our sick society the people who see the truth through the rhetoric, who speak out against lies and injustice, who stand out from the herd, are the exceptions.”~Charwoman

    And in the specific case we investigate here, just how large does “the herd” have to be to suffer from despotic psychological forms?
    Obviously, “the herd” can be as small as a single family in some instances, the size of a country club association, or the size of a small blog community such as Coto. Anywhere that ‘bonding’ takes place is a watering hole for a herd.

    Let me again reiterate a paragraph from above that was also posted on the purged coto page; Big Sister is Watching You:
    . . . . . . . .
    ‘As far as how I might be able to “skew” anything here, I don’t know how it can be said that giving open reign here for all to speak what is on there mind can be anything but a fair exposition of their deepest emotions and feelings. I cannot reveal that which is only theirs to reveal.

    These words are all your own…yes you own them.’

    What does it mean to be well adjusted in a pathological society?
