Enlightenment is impossible when the lies and deceptions within your own brain are believed as truth. You must seek the truth in all things at their true sources. Not from speaking mouth pieces which stand behind a podium or a television camera. Do not automatically believe any news agency or media outlet. Which mixes news with opinionated commentary. Which it seems all of the networks do today. Even my beloved (TWC) The Weather Channel is now and has been for a couple of years now sensationalizing the weather.
The media cannot be trusted any longer. No matter who they are. here is a strange twist. It seems that Russia Today is putting out better sourced news than any where within the USA.
You must logically analyze all of the news you take in for yourself. If you even sense an opinion within any news story. Lies and deceptions is probably in play. When the entire programming of a singular news story mixes in news and opinion. Your are being convinced into believing what those media outlets want you to believe. Which is called brain washing or mind control. Thinking for yourself frees you from mental enslavement.
