🔮 The Illusion of Truth 🔮 Nº65 – Cycling, Startups & Sales ✌🏻️
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #65 • View online
“The techniques of propagandists work for good reason. Studies show that the more often we hear a statement, the more likely we are to believe it is true—regardless of the underlying facts.”
Today was a bummer day of disbelief for most everyone I know. It seems that an alarming percentage America has fallen victim to the the illusion of truth
“This cycle, the one we saw for example from the Treaty of Versaille, to the rise of Hitler, to the Second World War, appears to be happening again. But as with before, most people cannot see it because:
  1. They are only looking at the present, not the past or future
  2. They are only looking immediately around them, not at how events connect globally
  3. Most people don’t read, think, challenge, or hear opposing views
Trump is doing this in America.”
TL;DR? Bridging from our closed groups to other closed groups and intentionally crossing ever widening social divides is the only way forward. Do your part.
As always, thanks for reading!
