James Corbett has been putting out videos detailing the solutions to the oppressive system we are living under, and in his recent video, he suggests we “unplug from the Matrix.” Corbett asks “do we really need to be constantly connected technologically?
Do we need to be connected to the grid 24/7 and to be online at all times living lives virtually, and not in reality? As people are increasingly enslaved and locked in their homes being banned from being human, many have had time to ponder this very issue.
Understandably, it is really difficult to completely break away from this manufactured reality the system has designed for us. But we can all begin by first realizing no one owns us (no president, no mayor, no governor, no senator, no police office, no IRS agent, no one.) No one makes a rightful master and no one makes a rightful slave. Once we figure this out, slowly the solutions begin to emerge.
While we should all be aware and stay alert to what is going on, we also need to have an understanding that those in “power” only have it because we believe that they do. Once we know that they are mere humans as we are, the facade falls away, and the veil is lifted presenting solutions.
As Corbett mentions, start small. Unplug. Turn off your wi-fi at night, turn off your phone. Get rid of Facebook and Twitter. “If you haven’t deleted Twitter yet, Twitter is deleting you…surprise surprise,” Corbett says. There are deeper issues than just censorship too. There are deeply embedded structural issues with continuing on a path of addiction to social media.
Take the little steps to make sure you can “carve out some space” for reality instead of being in a constant manipulated feedback loop. If we can all make small changes as individuals, we can all learn from each other and grow instead of being stuck in and unhappy.
It’s a small step, but one that’ll make a world of difference,
