Are You Brainwashed?; Malcolm X On The Mass Media Making You A Sucker

I came across the best quote ever from the revolutionary Malcolm X:

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”

Take back your brain at every turn, whether it be from the media you watch to the shoes you wear.

When you see the whole crowd going right, turn left.

What’s the mind trick the media is pulling on you? Why are you the sucker at the table?

Are You Being Lied To?; Why 90% Of The News Isn’t Important

Last night I went to go see the movie Truth and it got me thinking about how the news used to not be for profit. I wish it would go back to that.

The billionaire Charlie Munger says that humans respond to incentives, so the second something profitable makes the news, they’re going to look for scandals.

That’s why when I watch the news I know there’s always another side to the story.

Everybody’s side sounds good until you hear the other side.

Nobody wants to talk about the real issues, they want to make money. Focus on yourself. Then worry about scandal.

What’s an example of some news that you’ve read that turned out not to be true?

incentives, profitable, focus on yourself, make money, they want to make money, the billionaire, profit

How Many Friends Do You Really Need?

Matthew Lieberman, author of the book Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired To Connect sat down with Tai Lopez to talk about why it’s important to form real bonds with people, even if our instincts might tell us otherwise.

Studies have shown that being lonely has the same health consequences as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, and that 20 to 30 percent of the world is lonely.

Everyone uses Facebook, but has it really made us more social?

Do you think that social media has made you more or less social in real life? And how can you use social bonding to improve your life?
