Our mind and your concerns are managed, when they fall in an area that threatens the powerful. It takes concerted effort to break out and get a more accurate picture. I will give you an example.
Those who favor healthcare as a right, outvoted others by at least a few million. So naturally, there are huge movements to save healthcare.
Yesterday, as an opening shot, there were rallies – big rallies. I know it did not come up on my news, but What came up on my news was this headline: “Trump Promises ‘Insurance for Everybody’ as Health Law Replacement”. What comes up on my news is that it is bound to happen and already in progress.
I knew of the rallies so I searched for them specifically. With a little trouble, I did find many articles. They were carefully crafted headlines that minimized the scope of the resistance. Most telling, was that most of THOSE articles had photo coverage limited to close-ups of Bernie hunched over the podium, or of two people walking holding up a sign.
So a person whose online profile clearly favors healthcare as a right, who thinks THAT is where my taxes should be going, not to war, like me – I get a very skewed picture. It is a demoralizing picture that misleads me as to what is going on. Here, after a long search, is a decent article.
Get involved, find out what is going on. There IS hope.
