I know that the penultimate waking experience for me was Loose Change’s 9/11 documentary, which I stumbled upon in 2007 through the website Reddit. But looking back I was exposed to numerous materials that ‘could’ have woken me up. I read ‘1984’ and ‘Brave New World’ in High School. I saw the movie ‘Brazil’ when it came out. I watched ‘They Live’ in college and thought it was bad. I watched ‘The Matrix’ when it hit the DVD shelf, and loved it. Around 2000 I distinctly remember having the realization that Goldman Sachs was a criminal organization, that all they did to ‘create value’ was steal from others. I am certain at some point in the early 00’s I was convinced that Kennedy was killed by elements within the Government. In 2006 I stumbled upon what must have been Peter Schiff’s proclamation of the coming housing crisis using facts and historic data, in particular the Case-Schiller report. Of course the MSM was laughing at this. I am sure there are many many more materials that I was exposed to before 2007 that could have woken me up… but I did not. I wonder why?
From 2007 until today I have gone through a series of further awakenings. Many of them traumatic, to the point that spiritually I curled up in the fetal position and wept, and in hindsight it probably would have been therapeutic to have done it physically as well. It hurt, it was disturbing, it was terrifying… there is a very dark world out there. Now I will admit I was naive, in large part because my parents were, and also because I grew up never lacking for anything. I’m sure a person who hunger was a regular reality, or were abused, as a child had a much easier time waking up to the ‘reality’ of the world we live in. But for someone who grew up in a protective bubble, it’s been difficult. As for the trauma of it, I’m empathic which means I’m emotionally and spiritually sensitive, so I can only assume this means it cuts me deeper when discovering ‘another’ ugly truth.
Today I am positive that one primary reason I awoken is that I am insatiably curious. I need to learn, I need to know how things work, I want to know why, I want to know the facts, often called the ‘Truth’. This goes back to my childhood, I tore apart my toys to see how they worked, unfortunately most toys are not designed to be taken apart and put back together. I got in trouble for this as a child, but my curiosity was so strong that I continued to do it anyway knowing full well the consequences. If my curiosity had been squashed, which btw is one of the primary purposes of Public Education, I doubt I would be writing this today.
But why did it take me until I was 39 to start to wake up, and in particular why if I was so curious? There are several factors why humans either do not see or choose not to acknowledge the truth.
