Preparedness includes gathering intelligence, knowledge, and information regarding global / world current-events. It is a form of situational awareness that will help guide you towards more effective risk assessment – which may influence specifics of your preparedness.
If you only watch one channel, your knowledge and perception of world current-events will be limited to what is presented by that channel and will be perceived as they have intended it to be perceived. In other words, you will be ‘brain washed’ by your limited and biased resource (they are all biased to an extent – some worse than others).
Your knowledge and awareness of ‘the news’ and current events is limited to what you let in.
While it is impossible to grasp the entirety of global current events (there’s only so much time that one can designate to discovery), the fact is that most people only hear, see, or read a ‘mainstream’ news media outlet. Not to mention those who do not gather any news whatsoever…
Are you looking to peel back the onion?
Would you like to peek behind the curtain?
CAUTION: Once you take ‘the red pill’, there’s no going back to blissful ignorance…
The Matrix Is Real
It is quite well known (to the open-minded informed) that the mainstream news media is HEAVILY biased to ‘the far left’ (and further). Unfortunately a large number of people accept what they are told there as ‘the truth’. And they accept that the stories which are presented to be those which are the ‘most important’ for public consumption.
The problem is that most mainstream media outlets have seemingly, apparently, evidently become propaganda outlets for ‘the left’. This is a very unhealthy situation.
Fortunately, nature abhors a vacuum. When enough people search for intelligence and information beyond the mainstream, other outlets open up. Today, thanks to technology, there are alternative news and information outlets to enhance, challenge, and counter what the mainstream dishes out.
One must also take into account that even alt-news information outlets may be biased (and many are), but that’s perfectly okay if you ‘know’ it. The thing is, we are all biased. But that’s okay too – so long as we remain somewhat open-minded and not limit ourselves to just one source of ‘intelligence’.
In most cases you will find that ‘the truth’ has a certain ring to it. Often your ‘gut’ will let you know. Similarly if something seems not quite right, your gut will let you know that too…
I find it quite interesting how the mainstream will often site ‘conspiracy’ towards an alt-news outlet or a bit of information that doesn’t fit with their agenda. I also find it very interesting how so much of the past’s so called conspiracy has proven out to be factual.
Many more people have become open-minded to alternative news discovery, and as the alt-news churns out information that proves to be ‘truths’, the word ‘conspiracy’ has become diluted (and the mainstream is horrified by this). In fact there are a large number of alternative news sources today that have visitors/viewer numbers that DWARF some of the mainstream media (again, to their horror).
Remember, just because a mainstream figure-head says that it’s just ‘conspiracy’, does not mean that it is. Chances are these days that it’s probably not…
Since you are reading this, you are likely someone who already is gathering intelligence and information beyond the mainstream, and I’m speaking to the choir. However maybe just a few that happen to read this might consider to expand their situational awareness of current-events beyond their ‘one channel’.
Don’t be caught off guard by not being aware of a current-event that may affect or change your life. Keep your head out of the sand. Look around. Maintain a healthy skeptical distrust of the mainstream news media. There’s ‘stuff’ going on right now that could erupt into MAJOR changes and the mainstream is NOT talking about it (them)…
