It’s all lies

Inside our bubble of the same opinions we do not hear the voice of the other bubble.

This is where the human race is right now, in multiple bubbles not hearing a word of what anyone says if they aren’t from our bubble of opinions.

Fear of even being slightly contaminated by another contrary view leads the members of one bubble to wage hate-fuelled war on the other contrary group.

There is no longer any open respectful debate just hatred of anything different to our view.

The bubble cries out ‘it’s all a lie’ and where does this leave human race?

Fearful, hateful and lacking any compassion, empathy or understanding of our fellow human.

Bursting the bubble takes courage and vulnerability, we have to let go of our egos and listen to the others and understand them first, before we have any chance of them wanting to understand us. We have to be brave enough to be first and not wait for others to burst their bubble.

The alternative is staying stuck in our hate-filled bubble echoing only our own voice.

A new dialogue

Different voices by Philip Dodson

Your parent tells you something, does it make it so?

Your teacher tells you something, does it make it so?

Your boss tells you something, does it make it so?

The television news tells you something, does it make it so?

A politician, a lawyer, a doctor……

The makers of the myths that we all accept, does it make their myth so?

There are many people who can tell us something, it does not make it so.

There is a danger with relying on what we are told, it is not always so.

The voice of others not being questioned has often lead to many disasters for the human race. Our ever increasing compliance with the single voice of the system could be leading us there again.

Is one voice always all right and the other all wrong?

Not one voice is ever all wrong or all right, it is up to us all to be open to all views and make an informed choice, not merely agreeing without evaluation of all voices.

The best approach is to counter things, to question, to be curious, to look at what is the motive behind what we are being told. To not evaluate until we have thought about it for ourselves is essential.

It is essential to avoid dogma and being polarised into one camp, the best options often come from a blend, a consensus, where all opinions are taken into account.

We’ve had the single voice of the elite for a long time deciding the fate of the many. It is time perhaps to hear and incorporate the voices of the many. After all, why not? Perhaps it is the controllers of the mainstream voice who fear the most and silence the most.

We might find that what we were told was so, but surely it is worth questioning and not blindly relying on the voice of others. Surely, it is worth exploring some new options that are not simply black or white, this or that.

We need to explore a new dialogue for the human race before there is completely just one allowed.
