Removed and censored? Now what?

Now that information is aggressively being threatened, removed, and censored throughout FaceBook, YouTube, Pinterest, and other social media sharing outlets, where will you keep your data?

When will mainstream social media users finally realize they have no ownership, protection, or control over their content? Will it take the removal of an entire account, their group, or a shadow ban without warning or reason to jet into action? Is that the blowtorch under the ass users need to swiftly enact a game plan? Why wait until it’s all lost and deleted? All of the years and effort of collecting, saving, and sharing info on social media may soon vanish, especially if you are delivering content that challenges corporate agenda or illuminates truth.

What are you planning to do with your treasured content and connections?

A Solution For Information Overwhelm.

We are deeply immersed in the Information Age – a digital holograph filled with intelligence and instant access to vast knowledge. An incredible smorgasbord and roaring sea of content in the land of bytes and bites. But for many of us, instead it becomes an Overwhelm of Information — Age. A saturated terrain of constant information, data, distraction, and clutter. It can be challenging to keep up with everything we’d like to and ignore or dodge what we don’t. We have immediate access to both the information we need and desire, yet are bombarded with a constant stream of cluttered content not relevant to us that speeds by in every direction in this fast-paced information superhighway.

Abstract Futuristic Cyberspace With A Hacked Array Of Binary DatInstant access 24/7 from unlimited sources, worldwide – at our fingertips, touch screens, and voice commands, — all resting in the cloud waiting for us to engage, interact, and make use of what we discover. We navigate through a colossal mountain of information with our discernment and critical thinking skills, excavate, and extract what’s valuable to us and others. The incredible amount of data, bits and pieces of content, news, digital info pods, and endless paper piles we amass, encounter, and gather is not only astounding, but compounding.

Not all of the information is to save for a later use, but when we do save it, is it easily accessible or is it lost in the inter-webs, or somewhere on our computer, phone, or in some random file or folder that takes hours, days, or months to locate?

Cloud Computing, Cloud Computing Concept, Cloud Network In AbstrWhere do you save your information? Where do you put your essential stuff?

On scraps of papers, sticky and refrigerator notes, bookmarked website links, digital computer folders, “saved” paper piles for later, computer lists, notes or reminders on your phone, emails, discussion threads, notebooks, file folders, on a content management service, on social media, in journals, or elsewhere?

Are you able to find the valuable info when you need it? Easily? Or with great effort, energy, and time?

Mixed Race Woman In Glasses Working With Multiple Electronic IntSome more questions to consider:

  • How do you manage all of your digital and analog information? Is it an easy, smooth, and organized process? Or painful, time-consuming, and drudgery?
  • How challenging would it be to put your essential information in piles and folders?
  • How do you protect and preserve the info you want to revisit later to use or share?
  • Do you have a system in place to catalog important info?
  • Do you use content management systems, software programs, or mobile apps to store and save files?
  • Do you use folders on your desktop? Bookmarks on your internet browser? Do you have a saved folder on your social media accounts with categories to enter links, take action, review later, or things to share, etc.?
  • Or are you old school and create paper lists, keep notebooks, use collages or scrapbooking, or file folders?
  • Do you have different categories of information in specific places online? Like your health info in one place, your photos or memes in another, book or article recommendations and products someplace else?
  • What’s worth saving? What would you want to share and make accessible to others?
  • Would it be useful to organize, condense, and streamline your information in one central spot to make it easier to access, share, and download?

Elevated View Of Paper Sticker With Word Ideas In Notebook, PencBeing able to effectively organize information can be a necessity for someone going through a traumatic recovery from an acute health event, an accident, someone enduring a chronic condition, a new parent, and someone caring for an elder ailing parent, etc. As a content creator, storing, and cataloguing information results in productivity and efficiency. Even if you’re an avid reader or researcher on various topics of interest, knowing where all the content is and how it is organized makes drawing upon it later much easier.

Or maybe you love saving an assortment of helpful, educational, or inspirational goodies and gems from media clips, to recipes, to alternative remedies to try, or do it yourself projects? Or you like to collect everything from quotes, research, images, create lists of books or products to buy, track recommendations from others, or things you’d to share, and more? Whoever you are and whatever content you find beneficial, having a secure place to easily transport your info as you walk in the world, and be able to easily access it, and effectively share it when needed — is the way it should be!

Be an outlier in a world of conformists.

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” ― John F. Kennedy

Members of society that have been successfully conditioned, conform. They resign themselves, lose themselves, and succumb to sameness, uniformity – homogeneity. Groomed to follow. Conditioned to conform. Programmed to please, consume, and accept the status quo. Taught to be submissive, follow orders, and obey authority. Operating on auto-pilot as cogs in the rat race wheel greased by the desire to fit in, while begging to be accepted. Miserable, empty, stagnant, and stuck. As a result, they become reliant on the very system that oppresses, controls, and abuses them and the masses.

“One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.” ― Aldous Huxley
Conformity is the contrary to uniqueness, individuality, expressing your authentic self, and being empowered. Is it much easier and convenient to conform than to identify with who you really are than eject yourself from a system built on manipulation and illusion?

 

“The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice, it’s conformity.” ― Rollo May

More “conformity” definitions:
  • Similarity in form or character; agreement.
  • Action or behavior in correspondence with socially accepted standards, conventions, rules, or laws: conformity to university regulations.
  • State of things being similar, or identical.
  • A point of resemblance; a similarity.
  • The ideology of adhering to one standard or social uniformity.

More “conditioned” definitions:
  • Subject to or dependent on a condition or conditions.
  • Prepared for a specific action or process.
  • Psychology – Exhibiting or trained to exhibit a conditioned response.
  • Prepared for a specific use.
  • Exhibiting a conditioned reflex.
“A fair and just society offers equality of opportunity to all. But it cannot promise, and should not try to enforce, sameness.” ― Christina Hoff Sommers
Who benefits from a society of homogenous thinkers? Those in power, the ruling class, including bureaucratic, religious, military, and big business leaders. The power elite – “powerful people who hold a disproportionate amount of wealth, privilege, political power, or skill in society.” These power-players influence policy decisions with their actions, opinions, and actions.

 

Why would those in power want the populace to be conditioned and uniform?

 

How do they benefit from a society of conformists and followers?
bigstock--201639103
Conditioned clones are far easier to control. Literal crowd control mentality. Through this regulation of control, there is a false sense of security and perceived independence by those who conform and follow. It’s much easier to control a group with collectively similar beliefs, patterns, and behaviors, than it is to allow dissenters and resisters.

 

But what really happens when dissenters break out and challenge authority? Question the official narratives? Speak against those in power and the ideologies they push? They are often silenced, outcast, censored, called conspiracy theorists or crazy, denied being accepted, marginalized, and certainly not given corporate-owned media coverage and airtime.

 

How does the ruling class and the power elite condition?

 

Through the mass media’s repetition on television, radio, print and social media. Through the illusion of “choice” of media outlets and channels — when in fact they are owned by a select few, — only five to six media conglomerates in the United States. The grooming, brainwashing of what’s accepted is also embedded within society, culture, institutions, schools, and government. Expectations are carefully scripted within narratives and deliberately woven. Roles and desired behaviors, deliberately constructed. The conditioning becomes seamless, stealth, and unnoticeable, like the fish in water, “what water?”

Fish School Arrow Shaped Against The Grain Perspective
Through the power of language, conditioning is implemented. Language and connotations influence minds, behaviors, perceptions, beliefs, and actions. Both the choice of language and connotations play a significant role in scripting what’s acceptable. To deviate from the “norm” and the noun, “social deviate, are often given negative connotations. A “rebel”, “rebellion”, and “to rebel”, also hold a negative charge in the context of what’s acceptable and preferred within society. The same holds true for “activists”, those who are “anti-establishment”, “radical”, and “counter-culture”. Many of these condescending and shaming terms are often synonymous with traitor, instead of being aligned with catalysts for change.

 

An outlier, a rebel, and a renegade do not exist within the limits; they break the boundaries and the norm. It’s the only way to survive from being swallowed up and engulfed by mediocrity. A rebel goes against the grain and prefers not to be corralled. Does what’s not popular and lives beyond the dominant culture ideals.

Rebel

  • To refuse allegiance to and oppose by force an established government or ruling authority.
  • To resist or defy an authority or a generally accepted convention.
  • To feel or express strong unwillingness or repugnance.

Renegade

  • One who rejects a religion, cause, allegiance, or group for another; a deserter.
  • An outlaw; a rebel.
  • Of, relating to, or resembling a renegade; traitorous.
  • To become a deserter or an outlaw.
  • A disloyal person who betrays or deserts his cause, religion, political party, friend, etc.
  • A common vagabond; a worthless or wicked fellow.
  • break with established customs

 

  • One whose domicile lies at an appreciable distance from his or her place of business.
  • A value far from most others in a set of data: “Outliers make statistical analyses difficult” (Harvey Motulsky).
  • Geology A portion of stratified rock separated from a main formation by erosion.

outlier or outsider concept on a digital tablet with a cup of te

Be an outlier in a world of conformists.

 

Snap out of the endless brainwashing machine spin-cycle. Stop rinsing your brain with their waterboarded indoctrination. Deviate from the clones and drones, the conditioned sameness, uniformity, and conformity. Outliers spawn originality. Innovative ideas emerge on the edges. These ideas live outside the box and beyond the lines of control and societal boundaries.

Thinking Outside The Box

Revel in your independence and uniqueness. Discover who you are and not who you “should be” according to their “conditions” and “program”. Take personal inventory of where you conform and where you rest on the ledge as an outlier. Time to break out of the conditioning and the programs you’ve been trained to believe. Break up with this dysfunctional conditioned fantasy. The act of rebellion challenges the system, disrupts conventional thinking, and is a catalyst for growth and change.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Will you be the aberration? Are you willing to take a risk and step out of the crowd, the herd, and the herd mentality? It’s time for each of us to be the outlier in a world of conformists. It’s time to detach from the the status quo, the puppet strings, and be bold enough to walk on our own towards an improved reality that we co-create.

white crow among black crowsWhat possibilities exist outside the bounds of conformity?

Let’s pioneer this together and build something different ― outside the boundaries.
