The animated short film "Happiness" is a truly spot-on depiction of today's society. It's the story of a rodent's (meant to represent a human's) unrelenting search for happiness and fulfillment in all the wrong places.
The moral of the story? Instead of mindlessly contributing to the rat race, ask yourself what you can do to contribute something to the greater good.
Few things infuriate me more than people who jump on and swallow whole every bone that the Mainstream Media (MSM) throws at them. Let me take the recent MSM-created mass hysteria around the intelligence operation called "The Panama Papers" as an example.
Any person capable of critical thinking would have to wonder WHY the information was only released to a very specific group of "investigative journalists" instead of to the public at large. Why not make it a global online effort to go over the supposedly more than 11.5 million (!) documents with a fine-tooth comb?
I'll tell you why; there is, as always, a multi-layered agenda that involves controlled dissemination of information and misdirection. The "top 1-10%" create offshore shell companies to hide their wealth and evade taxes…. Seriously MSM, tell the public something they don't know for a change.
One of the things I keep hammering on is that people really need to ask themselves, what they are NOT being told about what they are being told. (yes, you might want to read that sentence again)
Misdirection is one of the oldest tricks in the book and while the willfully ignorant masses are feasting on "the papers", one of the MANY other important things the MSM is NOT reporting on with the same fervor, is the controversy around the documentary film VAXXED, that was pulled from the Tribeca film festival in New York.
VAXXED recounts the story of a senior scientist turned whistleblower at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who confessed that the CDC omitted crucial data in their final report on the 2004 study that was done about the causal relationship between the MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) vaccine and autism.
If you're asking why you should care, I can only tell you that you should care not only, and especially if you have children, but also if you care about being a human being with a healthy mind in a healthy body.
American politicians don't write the laws or read the laws which, strangely enough, is not currently required anywhere in the U.S., and then they pass the laws.
Disgusted with the corruption and legislative malpractice, average-Joe-citizen Jerrol LeBaron set out on a quest to get legislation passed that would force legislators, at both the state and federal level, to read and fully understand any piece of legislation before voting "yes" on it, and to make the final text of the bill available for public perusal online prior to the vote.
This seems to be a common-sense requirement that would get broad support across the political spectrum, but Fools On The Hill shows just how entrenched the interests opposed to such a measure are, and how difficult it would be to actually get that kind of legislation passed.

The question that immediately comes to mind of course is, would the members of Congress actually read and pass a bill into legislation, which requires them to read every bill before passing it as law? Hmm, I think not.
This is another video that really doesn't need an introduction. As I have stated many times elsewhere on the site: throw away your television before it fries your brain. Or to quote Danny Schechter, " the more you watch, the less you know".
