Do We Really Have Freedom

You Have No Rights

Comedian George Carlin made an entire career out of making fun of common everyday situations. He joked about how we carry a lot of stuff, only to find things to hold our stuff so that we could go out and buy more stuff. Sad, but he had a point. Well, Carlin also found something else to poke fun at…only it isn’t too funny if you think about it. The fact that we are powerless individuals who gave up our rights a long time ago.

According to Carlin, the deep state controls our government, the celebrities, the corporations, and every other group that has access to the public. They are all told what to say, how to say it, and when to say it…and we, as the public, simply eat every word and assume it’s in our best interest. The reality is that the only interest that matters is the interest of those who control the entire system. They want more money, and they will use us all to get it. Those few white men who are truly in power could care less if the general population suffers. They only want to use people to make more money and to gain more power. This is the logic that Carlin so wonderfully explains in this creative video.



Feeling Emotional?

Can you look at someone’s face and know what they’re feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness, and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway?

For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are.

Here, she shares the results of her exhaustive research — and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.
