Despite spending the last 12 years enrolled in America’s education system, I’ve been repeatedly disappointed in the schooling I’ve received. In light of recent evidence, I find it astonishing that the media has decided to ignore major breakthroughs, opting to instead focus on society’s misplaced belief in “science” and “facts.”
Teachers continue to neglect huge categories of meticulously researched information easily found on the internet. In the past four years, I’ve read at least three articles suggesting that the government creates earthquakes and two that have definitively concluded that the Clinton family has assassinated 50 political figures. Yet, when bringing up these topics with my teachers, I’ve been met with nothing but scorn and dismissal.
The fact that nobody takes this evidence seriously represents a failure of our education system. Teachers are constantly going on about “new ideas,” but refuse to watch a 27-minute YouTube video that outlines how vaccines are destroying the economy. It disappoints me that people refuse to educate themselves, instead latching onto a herd mentality of believing the first thing that they read.
Once exposed to the statistics I found on www.fakemoonlanding.com, surely people will start to realize that the information they’ve learned from decades of scientific studies and acclaimed researchers have been carefully falsified by malicious infiltrators of society’s highest levels of leadership. Surely, people won’t be able to contradict undeniable facts after looking at such convincing evidence.
Society’s ridiculous stubbornness against the truth has also taken a toll on the benevolent communities that work to teach their newfound ideas to others. Unfortunately, educational videos that help viewers understand that society has been lying to them for years have begun to be restricted by YouTube. My efforts to publish my ideas on local news sites are repeatedly rejected, continually disparaged as a joke.
It is continually baffling as to why people are intent on denying what is clearly presented in front of them. In some cases, there have been attempts from evil corporations to contradict the facts presented, with falsified Wikipedia articles being broadcasted alongside our highly accurate information.
Luckily, the internet has ensured that our hopes to inform the world of our ideas will not be deterred. By staying active on Facebook groups that preach about how gay Americans are actively conspiring to destroy religion, I can continue guaranteeing that intelligent and skeptical audiences will find the truth. Outside of Facebook, I find hope in the countless blogs and platforms that emphasize that we should doubt everything we are told—even when given to us by a reputable scientifically-based source—and instead find solace in the research done by middle-aged mothers on Quora.
In this age of technological and social progress, it’s more important than ever for citizens to take charge of their own education, actively looking for truth among the lies that plague society.
