Are You Being Controlled
Mind Manipulation

We can all agree the last couple of years has been a shit-show.

Personally, ditto. Dad died, I lost my job, almost died, and recovery was slow. I know others with worse situations-and that sucks for them.

Supply chain disruptions, locked up, social-society withdrawal, anxiety, depression.

The media plays with words to manipulate our emotions. Anger, hate directed at? People that don’t think like us. People that have more money. nicer stuff, different heritage, older people, younger people, millennials, left, right, God-loving, God-hating, God indifferent, women, men, transgender, meat-eaters, vegetarians, vegans.


Have you felt these?

Do you watch the news and, while watching, find yourself angry at your mom, dad, child, grandparent, friend, or neighbor?

Are you blaming them for the riots, the high cost of living, and global warming? Do you think they are suckers or stupid for believing a certain way?

Congratulation! You are one of many controlled-mind fu$%#@ individuals.

How did we get here?

Is the media to blame?

Who gave the orders to slant the news to cause anger and aggression?
