It is an easily provable fact that many important factors of the current global economic reality are routinely and consistently avoided by the mainstream media. This means that you and I cannot rely on the news to keep us informed of the greater economic reality in which we live and make decisions about our future.
Keep your eye on the ball
Very often people to get bogged down in trying to answer the question of why this is so. But this is a dangerous diversion from the main priority of informing ourselves. If we want to make decisions based upon the reality of the economic situation we must remain focused on the goal of gaining knowledge of that economic reality and leave the speculation about why the ‘news’ is so carefully edited, controlled and managed aside.
To understand the economic reality requires self-education
Unfortunately our conditioning within the Matrix predisposes us towards accepting the ‘news’ as truth without questioning it. The typical school experience of the last 50 years or so leaves young people without the crucial skills of independent thinking that are required for the acquisition of knowledge. The onus is on us all to wake ourselves out of this slumber of blind acceptance and rekindle our natural curiosity and educate ourselves about the nature of the context in which we live.
This is where the work of analysts like Rob Kirby comes in. The work of people like Rob gives us a head start in looking past the myths and deception and hearing directly from seekers of truth. We must, of course, always practice due diligence and not blindly accept the words of anyone (even Rob) but there are many sources of economic information that are massively more reliable and informative than your mainstream ‘news’ on the TV or in Magazines and ‘news’ papers.

We have covered the need for thinking on this site. And we have looked at the economics of freedom with Dr Mark Thornton. These are well worth checking out. Also I recommend looking to why the cryptocurrencies will change everything with Jeffrey Tucker, as well as the evolution of money as a deeper look into Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency phenomenon. I sincerely hope all these explorations into topics either ignored or misrepresented by the mainstream media will spur you on in your own self-education and encourage you to step further and further outside the Matrix.
