What's going on Bull Penners?
I don't wanna over write for this one so lets just get right into it.
For the longest time I've been telling myself that I'm getting off of FaceBook and gonna slowly wean myself off of social media all together. I've made absolutely no progress with either, but whatever.
That's not the point anyway. The point is the new trend that seems to be taking social media by storm is being "Woke" (Awoken/Enlightened by truth.)
If you are fortunate enough to not have encountered these people while scrolling through the screens of you social media app of choice, allow me to break it down for you.
Who are these people who are "Woke?" I'll tell you. A person who is woke, is a person who has found truth behind the curtains of lies that we as a people have been fed for the last lifetime. Lies fed to us by our government, food industries, Music Industries, or whatever industry. Basically, any person who has had the vial removed from their eyes, and is now realizing all the things that have been hidden from us forever and are now choosing to take their own path in life are considered to be woke.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. If you know me, then you know I am all for education of all kinds. And what better education than the one you receive when you do research, find out things that are beneficial to you and your community?! So my problem is not with the people in this era of enlightenment. In fact, I'm proud of those who are finally waking up and seeing the true colors of the world, be they dim as they may be.
Rather, my problem is the air of superiority that comes with this education. It would seem that these people have found the holy grail, and now have been granted some sort of permission to look down and everyone else who has yet to learn what they know. But the one thing they don't realize, the one thing they still haven't learned is: ALL These things that you're just now learning has been in existence since forever. Somewhere there was a guy in the 50's and 60's who discovered all these things, he just didn't have a computer and facebook to spread his message. However, I'm sure he didn't walk around with his chest out feeling as if he was better than everyone simply because he learned new things. There's a good chance he did what you all should be doing. Sharing the knowledge, in a non condescending manner.
Humble your fucking selves. It comes from all different angles. Some people are JUST NOW finding out about the corruptions in politics: and they go on Facebook and rant about how everyone is so stupid because they don't realize this or they don't know that. How about rather than making yourself out to be some sort of scholar you take the time to instead educate others on what you've learned.
Like I said earlier, I'm all for education in all forms. What I am not a fan of is this attitude, the superiority complex. We will never rise up as a people if we are not willing to help each other out, if we are not willing to teach those that come after us.
If you've learned anything, share it. Or don't if you feel you don't want to, but don't be a douchebag and make other people feel less than you are because of it.
Too often people are scared to bring people with them to the top, for fear that it may knock them off. If you are a valued player in any game then you shouldn't be scared to share that spotlight.
That's all I wanted to say about that!
Stay Up and Stay Woke!
