We are all speaking with our glands
Speaking with chemicals and not electricity
Creates a morass of thought
In which to wade.
Stances selected subliminally
Create allegiance to tribal stance,
And not renegade.
We select the facts
To fit the answers
We desire to hear
And reject all opposition
Out of accentuated fear.
All we can be certain of
Is that the truth
Rarely does appear.
For allowing our glands to rule
Opens us to control.
Those who pull the strings
Know exactly how to push the buttons.
They feed in the manicured ‘facts’
To reinforce the message
For which we are the gluttons.
We cannot discern the truth with chemicals
We must apply electricity.
Then wading through the fake news
Is a path of more simplicity.
For division is the devil’s trade
And the friend of the politician.
While cooperation is our strength
When making our decisions.
Politicians are using propaganda to deliberately arouse emotions. By creating fear and hatred they can manipulate the population. Hormones muddle thinking. A person does not think clearly when brains are flooded with adrenaline. All they want is action.
Brains run best on electricity.
It is always good to think with your head and not your gut.
Racism and fear of strangers is the way that fascism spreads its evil tendrils. Populist politicians gain popularity through arousing anger, fear and hate. They create tribalism and divide.
A friendly smile and a welcoming hand is always better than a fist and boot. NO BLACKS NO IRISH NO DOGS NO SENSE
