The Third (and Only) Way to End the Insanity

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again – maybe more than ever – highlighted the divisions that now exist in humanity, at least in the West. On the one hand, we have those who accept that this is a reality and who choose to follow government guidelines in dealing with the pandemic. These are the people the alt media likes to brand as “sheeple”, the ones who largely spend their lives following official and mainstream narratives. On the other hand, we have those who do not accept the official narrative and are positioning themselves against governments and against what they perceive as a Deep State conspiracy. They are those who like to brand themselves as “awake”, those who have vehemently rejected almost all of the official and mainstream narrative.

However, unbeknownst to most, there is a third category… while in a tiny minority, this category of people sits right in the middle, seeing validity in both sides of the argument and forming their views based on solid evidence and common logic, not letting their own emotions and conformational bias get in the way of seeking the truth. This category is the ONLY category that has a future. Not necessarily because of their specific views, but because of how they arrived there. They are the observers, the philosophers, the pragmatists, the unbiased objective wisdom seekers. They are not led by fear or by their own egos, they have learned that those things don’t serve humanity. They have learned, sometimes through trial and error, that the only way to get to the reality of a given situation is to objectively analyse it from all angles, carefully assessing all the various iterations and thus arriving at a logical conclusion. By doing this, they will always be multiple steps ahead of everyone else. This is why it is often this category of people who are ridiculed, scoffed at, chewed up and spat out by the rest of society… until a few years or decades have passed, when the majority has finally caught up and realised that they made a mistake. There are countless examples of this in history.

Instead of daring to stare down the barrel of cold hard reality, humanity chooses time and time again to ridicule, argue, fight and violently oppose each other over one dogmatic belief or another. Whether it is bipartisan politics, whether it is religion, whether it is this “ism” or that “ism”, or whether it is Deep State or no Deep State, humanity repeats this same mistake over and over and over again. We hold each other hostage over a difference in opinion, religion, race, political preference, and the list goes on. We have somehow come to think that one’s belief defines one’s character and that there is no way we could possibly have anything in common if we hold opposite beliefs. But nothing could be farther from the truth.

We have somehow forgotten that we all share one common characteristic: humanity. We have forgotten that at the end of the day, most people can agree that they want a happier, more peaceful and more harmonious world to live in. So why do we keep doing the exact opposite? Why do we keep doing the very things that are only going to continue the perpetual cycle of insanity that has gripped the world for centuries? We all think we know the answers, we all think that our words and actions are justified for one reason or another. But are they? Isn’t this exactly the kind of bullshit we are trying to overcome? As the saying goes, the road to hell is often paved with good intentions.

Why is it so hard for us to connect with each other on a level that goes beyond all the superficial political, religious and other views? If a friend or a family has an opposing opinion, why do we feel it necessary to argue with them, sometimes even alienate them, as if a superficial belief is more important than the deep emotional bonds that lie at the core of our interactions? Isn’t it time that we re-prioritise the way we view other people? That a person’s character and what lies in their heart is so much more valuable than an opinion? That we can, and should, judge people only by how they treat those around them? Can’t we all agree that at the end of the day, the only thing that truly matters in life, and the only thing that is ever going to mend the insanity of the world, is real emotional connection?

When do we realise that changing the world starts with how we treat others around us, not with a government or an organisation or with the eradication of the Deep State? Do we not think that the only reason the Deep State has been able to do what it does is because of the divisions that exist between us? Remember that phrase the alt media likes to use to describe the Deep State’s tactics; divide and conquer? If we are not divided, they can’t conquer. So let’s stop playing right into their hands, letting ourselves be divided over and over again, like a bunch of fools. Let’s start engaging our minds instead of our fears and egos and heal the divisions that are keeping humanity enslaved.

  1. Also, if I may be so bold as to suggest that one’s ‘beliefs’ (right or wrong at the level of content, context or veracity) do NOT in fact have ‘human rights’, nor should they.

    -Make what you will of that, and have a nice day!

  2. I understand your point and totally agree.
    I now preface any discussion with friends on these “hot” topics such as Covid, vaccines, climate change, gender, the economy etc with ” this is just my opinion and I may be wrong” but ….
    I do this so at the end of the discussion we can agree to disagree and the friendship remains intact.
    Having said that 80% of my friends and some of my family think I am a complete
    nutjob but you get that sometimes!

  3. I am so confused as to where to even start the journey but this statement resounds deeply within me. If anyone can help me with more links to this third party stance, I would be ever so grateful.
