Critical Thinking: Is The Mainstream Media The Real Virus?

If someone has been paying a lot of attention to the mainstream media over the last two years, there is the chance that they will have a certain view of the Coronavirus and all the variants that have and are likely to appear as time goes by. As far as they are concerned, this virus and its variants can be seen as being extremely deadly.As a result of this, it will be essential for them to have every vaccine and booster that is offered and to follow all of the rules, regardless of what they are. Most likely, they will have a number of people in their life who behave in the same way.Stepping BackNow, if they were to step back, if only for a few minutes, and to think about why they perceive the virus in this way, what could come to mind is what they have heard about from the mainstream media. What the newsreaders have said, along with experts and governmental figures, will then have had a massive impact on their outlook.Additionally, they may know at least one person who has died or is said to have died from it. But other than this, what they have been told from the people above can be what is primarily behind how they perceive reality.The TruthHowever, if they don’t engage in this process and look into why see the virus as they do, how they see the virus will just be seen as a reflection of what it is like. In other words, their experience of it won’t be influenced by what they have been told; it will simply be a reflection of how dangerous it is.Consequently, if they were to meet someone who doesn’t really pay attention to the mainstream media, it is not going to be a surprise if there is conflict. The former will have one outlook and the latter is likely to have a very different outlook.Two ExperiencesThe former can spend a lot of time feeling anxious and fearful, and rarely even leave their home. They can believe that the other person simply doesn’t realise how dangerous the virus is, needs to ‘wake up’ and could describe them as a conspiracy theorist.On the other hand, the latter might find that, in general, their inner state hasn’t really changed and is happy to carry on as normal, or as normal as is possible and is doing what they can to naturally boost their immune system. In their eyes, they can believe that the other person has been conditioned to be overly fearful of the virus, due to what they have been told by the media and also needs to ‘wake up’.The Power of FearIf the latter had a different lifestyle and was also plugged into this source of information, there is the chance that they would have a different outlook. Yet, if someone was being fed fear, day after day, month after month, year after year, how else would they be?It has been said that perception is reality, so if someone has been told, constantly, how dangerous a virus is, this information is going to define how they experience life. It won’t matter if there is any evidence that goes against what they believe, or if it is possible for them to naturally boost their immune system, as they will have literally been programmed to see reality through a certain lens.The Big illusionHowever, as this source creates the impression that they are simply reporting on what is going on, nothing more, nothing less, and one can see themselves as just an observer of reality, they won’t be able to see how what they are told goes into their creative consciousness and ends up defining what they do and don’t experience. Ultimately, the media is not simply informing them, it is conditioning them to see reality in a certain way as it is not possible for them to passively observe reality.What this does is shed light on how powerful they, along with their fellow human beings, are. Thanks to the power that they and their fellow human beings have to create their own reality, it also means that each human being also has the ability to co-create a very different world.
​
An AnalogyWith that aside, taking into account the part that the mainstream media is playing in what is going on, if the virus was an organisation that wanted to keep everyone in fear and to control them, the media would be its mouthpiece. This organisation would be dangerous, no doubt about it, but without this arm of the operation, it wouldn’t have the same level of control.But, it wouldn’t be right to say that what is going on is anything new as this source has been pumping out propaganda for years, with so many people being fearful of so many other things due to what this source has told them to fear. It is then very much a case of – business as usual.Final ThoughtsStill, as easy as it is to see this source as the perpetrator and a large part of humanity as the victims, an outlook that is unlikely to lead to change, this would only be true on one level. What also needs to be looked into is why this source is able to manipulate a citizen; what’s inside them that makes them susceptible to this propaganda?Is this source simply tapping into a citizen’s repressed fears and unresolved trauma? Someone in this position is then already in a vulnerable position, and, with the right words, images and sounds, this source, along with the government, is able to gradually hook them in, promise to protect them and, finally, to lead them wherever they desire.

The Main Reasons Why using a Pedicab for Advertising is a Great Idea

Advertising is diverse. Companies and brands are getting creative when it comes to advertising. In the past and even today, a lot of people have been relying on billboards for advertising. Even though this is an effective way of advertising, clients still pass the billboards and sometimes they are not so effective at leaving a lasting impression in the mind of a potential client. This is the main reason why companies are getting creative and are now making use of pedicabs. Other than the fact that these cabs move and they can have your brand’s poster on them while they pick and drop clients, they also leave a lasting impression because they can take up different shapes. Pedicabs are highly effective at advertising and here are the main reasons why this is the case.

It is Mobile
The first benefit of using a pedicab is that it moves. Unlike the traditional billboards that are stagnant in one place, pedicabs move with your brand. This means that it brings your ads to the people. There are so many people that can take an interest in the advertisement as the pedicab moves around the town or city. You get a bigger audience when the billboard is moving than when it is just stuck in one place.

Provide Value
People are more prone to pay attention to something if it gives them added value. So, if you have a fleet of pedicabs that advertise your brand and still offer transport services to clients for short distances, it is easier to get the attention that you need. The best thing about pedicabs is that the drivers are kind and they have been trained to have the right interpersonal skills. This makes it easier for them to be memorable among clients and it is easier for the customers to remember what was written on their cabs as well.

It is a Unique Approach
A lot of companies do billboards and social media advertising. Even though they are still effective in their own way, choosing to be unique also comes with its many advantages. The idea of advertising on pedicabs has not gained a lot of popularity yet. However, the companies that have tried it can attest that it works. It offers unforgettable experiences to clients especially if you have never ridden on a pedicab before. In addition to this, you can choose to make it more unforgettable by asking the pedicab drivers to offer the clients brochures or even pamphlets every time they take them to their different destinations.

It is Affordable
Finally, choosing to use a pedicab for advertisement is cheaper compared to advertising on a billboard. When using a pedicab you have options. Some pedicabs can run the advertisement for a short time while others can do it long term. This means that even if your budget can only cover the ad short term, you still get to advertise your brand and reach a lot of potential clients. Additionally, if you do the math and you look at the number of people that will see your brand being advertised, you will realize that this option is still cheaper.
