If you were not born rich, you have been programmed your entire life to stay that way. You have been born and indoctrinated into a system carefully designed to help you grow into a highly taxed worker bee, who doesn’t question authority, and who will sacrifice his or her entire life so that others in higher postions may succeed. It started when you were just a child, and continues today with propaganda that surrounds you every waking moment.
We are going to talk about that system today, and how my journey of learning and thought has taken me on an incredible ride into understanding just how these thoguhts are driven into us all. In this episode of Breaking the Chains we discuss many of the ways in which we are programmed from an early age to accept a life of mediocracy. We discuss the origins and purpose of schooling, mental programming through the constant influx of messages we receive every day, fears which hamper our drive, the timewasters which distract us, and many other things.
