Everything We've Been Told is a Lie



I WAS TOLD … AND I USED TO BELIEVE …
That we are all born equal
That I was born FREE
That my education will give me knowledge and wisdom
That my university degree would bring me life-long security
That our history books are accurate and true
That we evolved out of apes

I was told that … Fluoride would stop my teeth from rotting
That vaccines would keep me healthy
That flowing electrons create electricity
That the pyramids were tombs for Pharaohs
That the ancient civilisations were primitive

I was told that … Our tap water was safe to drink
The food on the supermarket shelves is healthy
That scientists have it all figured out
That mathematical formulas can explain everything
That atoms are made of subatomic particles
That Gravity was well defined and understood 

I believed that … We landed on the moon
That we travelled though the Van Allen Belts
That we returned to the moon several times
That we landed a probe on Mars
That the sun is giant nuclear reactor
That we have a picture of Earth from space

I was told that … Our junk DNA is just useless matter
That nothing moves faster than the speed of light
That cancer cannot be cured
That drug companies develop cures for diseases
That pills will make me better

I was told that … Mythology was just the imagination of people in ancient times
That Alexander was Great because he conquered the world;
That Adolf Hitler was evil because he wanted to conquer the world
That Hitler started the war and Churchill was a saint

I used to believe … that we are the most scientifically advanced civilisation
That we are at the pinnacle of knowledge
That humans are the most advanced species
That Stonehenge was built by men in loin cloths
That there was an exodus from Egypt by 600,000 Jews
That a man called Jesus was born 2000 years ago

I used to believe that … Our calendar is accurate and we live in a year called 2017
That our governments are our servants
Our governments are doing the best they can for us
That armies are necessary for our protection
That JFK was shot by a guy called Lee
That William Shakespeare wrote all those great stories

I was told that … Money makes the world go round
That our banks are controlled by our governments
That economics is very complicated and only a few truly understand it
That our money was connected to our gold reserves

I was told that … Two jumbo jets flew into the twin towers
That Saddam Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destructions
That Hendrik Verwoerd was killed because of Apartheid
That Gaddafi was a dangerous dictator
That royalty has some divine right to conquer and rule the world

I used to believe that … Nelson Mandela and the ANC freed the people of South Africa
That the Bible was the word of God
That millions of people were killed in gas chambers
That gold was necessary for human survival
That mining the planet was part of an advancing civilisation
That industrial development was the driving force behind our human progress

I was told that … Rockets can navigate in space
That chemtrails were just stubborn vapour trails
That there is molten iron at the core of the Earth
That this molten iron gives our Earth its magnetic properties
That magnetism is well understood

I was told that … Banks are respectable institutions
That people need jobs to survive
That human nature is to be greedy – to be violent – to wage war
That the human misery is a consequence of our dark human nature
That it is impossible to get out of this mess we find ourselves in

I was told that … Columbus and others like him were explorers
The Earth moves through space
That the Earth spins at 1000 miles per hour at the equator
That every picture shown by NASA was real
That dinosaurs roamed this Earth millions of years ago
That Father Christmas was real...

But today, I am not so certain about any of this, any more. What I do know, is that we have been manipulated and lied to for so long that it has become almost impossible to separate the lies from the truth. I realise that the deeper I scratch, the bigger the lies become. 

I know that our governments are not our friends or servants, and they serve an invisible master unknown to most of the people alive – covering up some kind of secret and knowledge, that if exposed, would cause them to lose control over the people of the world.

I suspect that it is this secret, which remains viciously guarded by our draconian dictators, that holds the key to our infinite potential as humanity to create anything we choose to.  That we are the creators of our own reality. That this potential and ability has been hidden from us through the lies and manipulations for thousands of years. 

So let us not wait another day longer, and let us start creating the kind of world and the kind of reality we want to live in, today.  www.ubuntuplanet.org
