Social Media May Be Dangerous To Your Freedoms! Or is it Something Else?

@ROliverLuce | 01-19-17

Social Media ‘could be’ dangerous to your freedoms if we continue to believe everything ‘we feel’ is not fake news. Or even that we retain our own echo chamber kicking out those ‘we feel’ have the lies and half-truths. The real issue I contend instead is ‘we the people’ slowly leaving the basis of all truth!

[What is ‘gaslighting?’ The ZDNet Article I’m writing about (herein) is attempting to describe a social reaction to a new term.]

With the advent of many American people leaving ‘the basis of truth’ found in the Bible, the Republic has gone astray leaving open the possibility of a vacuum that brings in chaos! This author is advocating that ‘Social Media’ encourages the absence of truth by its nature of allowing anything posted as news for example! However, I contend it’s all about leaving our first love, of the Bible, that held Americans together. Of course, Americans are not perfect from any perspective.

Of course, an absence of foundational truth does bring in destructive elements, like Alinsky-liberalism in filling the vacuum we see today in our Republic. For example a President and a party filled with Alinsky-communist liberals with their Muslim cohorts and their Islamic Sharia (laws) that stand against the values of the American Constitution.

People who believe in government control with a religious (like Islam) wing that drives and supports control can never understand the Biblical basis of the American social system. It’s also the basis from which we get the American Constitution.

The following quote[1] I’m providing from this ZDNet Article is simply common sense from which I have alliterated above. And from what I have written at the beginning of this article of mine, the real issue is walking away and losing our sense of the truth from the Hebrew-Christian Old Covenant and the Jewish-Christian New Covenant books. We are now venturing into uncharted territory. America based on lies and hearsay and candy coated news articles. The fake news and the lies will lead to the fall of the United States of America as we know it. America enslaved in the end.

Quoting the ZDNet Article [1]:

“We need to read beyond the first 200 words and all become critical thinkers, question every single thing we read on social media, read the story from as many sources as possible, and learn to recognize which sources to disregard and classify as the enemies of American journalistic values, which are dividing and lying to us.” {From the ZDNet Article.}

And as the author, of the ZDNet Article, says in particular:

“I will refuse to be ‘gaslighted’[2] through social media. And I hope my readers will as well.” {From the ZDNet Article.}
[He is saying to become free thinkers, thinking out of the box (Social Media). Yes, if you need too. But the REAL QUESTION is, what is your basis of thinking? The only way a free Republic can endure is by embracing the God who created this entire world. This God has his laws and common sense that promises a better society that encourages people who are self-restrained and civil with each other.]

[2] The definition of gaslighting described:

The description of the author’s definition of ‘gaslighting’ follows:
“We need to go old school [like]. As American citizens, we need to shed our Technology Augmented Autism [meaning] to become free thinkers and to choose our sources wisely.” {From the ZDNet Article.}
[Sue we can do this!  Again, the real problem is leaving the basis of truth, from the Bible, and believing anything that ‘sounds’ right.]
