Alternative to the Meme War
So what’s the alternative to the tactics and strategies of the meme war?
The alternative is to consider the case on its merits, independent of any bias or partiality.
You know? All the things we heard about as children? Equal justice for all? A fair and impartial hearing?
We as lightworkers are losing sight of this in our rush to have an educated opinion on what’s happening. We’re smart. We’re hip. But we’re being manipulated into two warring camps – pro and con on anything.
A hashtag is not necessarily a meme. They’re meant to be an address where people can meet (witness #MeToo). But I cited one the other day, #Obamagate, that is obviously a meme.
The word is controversial. It aims to establish the narrative that there is in fact a case here to be made, where the Company of Heaven unanimously tells us there is none.
All we need to do is become aware of the trap. Just wake up to the way we’re being manipulated by the use of biased hashtags like #Obamagate (2) or memes like leftie/alt right.
Awareness is dissolutive (my word). It’s not neutral. It takes the charge off a memory and dissolves the bonds of tension in the body. The Buddha used it to ascend to Buddhahood, nirvana.
For myself, I need to reject all sources that base their argument on a prior adherence to a meme.
This means journeying back among the celestial and galactic sources. It’s lonely and I feel insecure not keeping abreast of the news from current ground-level sources.
But, now that I’m aware, I can no longer just keep sailing on into a sea of misinformation, disinformation, and manipulation.
Imagine if courts of law were run on whose meme carries the most weight.
I couldn’t think of a better strategy for a psyop than to launch divisive memes and watch the more-easily-influenced among us flock to them. The polarization destroys our hopes of unity.
Meanwhile, everything behind the scenes is being handled. One thing the lockdown has taught me is that, if we want a change of planetary management, we’d better stay out of the hair of the people bringing it about. They’re doing so at great risk to themselves. And they’re reportedly having success.
How perfectly synchronized this awakening is to sheltering in place. I have the time to give to making the shift and to recovering from the virus of polarization.
