Flat Earth Philosophy Explained

Ahead of the curve?

In the 21st century, we are witnessing another important shift in both power and knowledge due to factors that include the increased public platforms afforded by social media. Knowledge is no longer centrally controlled and—as has been pointed out in the wake of Brexit—the age of the expert may be passing. Now, everybody has the power to create and share content. When Michael Gove, a leading proponent of Brexit, proclaimed: “I think the people of this country have had enough of experts,” it would seem that he, in many ways, meant it.

It is also clear that we’re seeing increased polarization in society, as we continue to drift away from agreed singular narratives and move into camps around shared interests. Recent Pew research suggests, for example, that 80 percent of voters who backed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election—and 81 percent of Trump voters—believe the two sides are unable to agree on basic facts.

Despite early claims that a worldwide shared resource of knowledge such as the internet would create peace, harmony, and a common interpretation of reality (this idea comes from as far back as HG Well’s “world brain” essays in 1936), it appears that quite the opposite has happened. With the increased voice afforded by social media, knowledge has been increasingly decentralized, and competing narratives have emerged.

nowadays access to information is the easiest, there is no way to control and guide the public. It used to be easy. a tv series, a few messages of consciousness, constantly repeating lies, and ultimately fooling the people into what you want. today people no longer hear news from television, from newspapers or from radios. Even any part of social media is inadequate alone by itself. people are taking it from the social media. it is debating it on another platform. and they share it on another platform. Today, social media continues to exist as part of a mixed network.

under this circumstances, there is no way to hide the reality of flat earth. The professors of the globist hegemonia can't deceive anyone, anymore. Because, a teenager who 15 yo has about same power with a man 50 yo a professor comparing to arrive the knowledge.

In about one hour, a 15 yo teenager easily find the issue that hasen't any adei about it in wikipedia, twitter or facebook; then can watch at least a video about it, then can learn the issue at least enough him to discuss with a professor. Even it does not give him a chance to do open-heart surgery, he can discuss with a professor on benefits and harms of open-heart surgery.

Either the intelligence level does not work in this regard. a person with much lower intelligence can specialize in a matter of hours in a few hours and give you aifing on that.

Flat Earth Philosophy depends on freedom of the knowledge. No one us has an affect on the flat earth theory. We can neither make it stronger or weaker. because now this is one of the topics on the agenda of social media. and in a very short time against the globist philosophy, he will reach his goal in order to avoid lying in the social media. If we help it, or if we try to resis it; but the result will not change.

You'll have to live with it. Here is maybe a chance for you to become addicted to this reality.

Correct,  flat earth belief relies heavily on mistrust of traditional authority.   The power of social media to allow people with similar mistrust of traditional science to get together and re-inforce their beliefs is the core of what flat earth belief is all about. 

Right and wrong have become relative.  It's more a question of what you want to believe.

Youths tend to rebel in generally. Because they want to take the side of olders. one of them is to counter everything that the old man defends. Sphere world theory is the theory the old man defends. It is only a theory that the flat earth theory is actually older. It does not matter whether it is true or not. Young people did not live that old. but they know that the old man defends the round earth. then it must be a mistake. This is the start point of mostly youths.

Flat earth society. Society maybe a political argument next. But it is theorically not more than this. It can not be used for purposes such as misguiding the beliefs and deceiving the people. This is the two of main target of this society, but as all we see that, it doesn't work. For example; "universal accelerate model" is a perception management aim to deceive people who believes the flat earth theory. But people resist it how they resist the globe theory. these studies can only give some names to the foreground. For example, John Davis may appear in the media in the future as a plain thinker. may be a politician. but people will say the errors in his theory, and after a while he will necessarily have to tell the facts to the od.

finally, whatever it is ture, it will be. All they do is slow it down, but they can not make it.

The thread isn't about whether the earth is flat or round.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

No, it is perfectly apt. We have millions of dollars pumped in to researching how the Mr Men childrens books are sexist. We debate how Prince charming didn't obtain 'consent' when he kissed sleeping beauty. We are coming up with ways to count the number of recognisable genders to infinitive rather than get on with the real shit and sort out real problems.

While you guys are discussing changing the definition of misogynist to encompass any sort of bias against women rather than a deep seeded hatred and while you are instagraming your food, countries like China who don't give 2 shits have overtaken you. They have militarised the South China Sea. They have invented better rail guns and weaponry than you and they are going to be number 1 super power both economically and militarily in the world very soon.

Countries which aren't inflicted with SJWs and political correctness have made strides in leaps and bounds. Meanwhile the west has black billionaire women celebrities like Oprah and Beyonce giving speeches about how women have a gender pay gap, get the raw deal and battling sexism  ::)

Just a simple question,  did you read the article I linked to?   I ask because your rant makes no sense in the context of flat earth philosophy, and why people believe conspiracy theories.   

You always seem to leap to the conclusion that everything that's wrong with the world is the fault of some anonymous army of SJWs and if you can work in Oprah into the rant against PC you jump at it.

The sad thing is that most of these grievances are exaggerated to ludicrous proportions in your imagination.

I read the article but my reply was mostly in your quote from it.

You can bet that more money than you earn in several years was spent authorising and researching how Mr Men childrens books are sexist. You tell me, how is that important? Does it benefit you and your society in any way? That's not the only ludicrous example of public money being spent on shit SJW and PC rubbish brain farts. My 'grievance' is not unjustified.

Also society places too much importance on the thoughts of too many people of insignificance such as in Facebook and Twitter. People need to understand they are sharing a world with more than 7 billion people. That's more than 7 billion points of view. Billions of people all trying to be heard and believing their point of view is more important than everyone elses at the same time

My advice (for the shit that its worth).... Get rid of Facebook and Twitter. Their outreach extends too far. Vet all YouTube videos so that shit like anti vaccine disinformation shit never sees the light of day. Return the power of information dissemination back to people who have spent years in research. Destroy the partisan political model and put an end to pointless political correctness.

And instill from a young age that you will be offended in life. If a woman is wearing a ring and someone asks 'who is the lucky guy', not to take offence that the person assumed you are heterosexual and finally, make things much more simpler. Barring a real medical condition, if you are born with a dick you are a male, end of story. No choosing. No fluidity. No demanding society play along with your delusions of being a woman. The more PC you stamp out, the more real information takes it's place.

I am all for internet filters if it filters bullshit. Lets face it Rayzor. If you wanted to Google search about vaccines, would it bother you if the government hid all results from know nothing know it alls that vaccines cause autism and all sorts of other disablements?

How many people would be bothered if Facebook were to disappear from our lives. I mean really? Is it worth it

You have seen yourself Rayzor the rise of social media and the political paralysis in the Australian parliament. We haven't had a leader serve out a full term since 2007. Everyone is so concerned about what social media thinks there is no long term goal or any intestinal fortitude to make unpopular decisions that may better us all in the long term. Someone on social media may get offended if you want to limit immigration or take population control methods so lets not talk about that. Ever. Until shit hits the fan and it will be too late.

Social media is a cancer to a progressive society. And my 'rant' fits in well and extends upon the problems you show in your link. I dare you to say I'm wrong

Ok, let's just take one point at a time.   How much money was spent researching how Mr Men books are sexist?   

The amount of money is not relevant,  it's a question of are they sexist or not.  I would argue that they aren't sexist.  But that doesn't stop someone else claiming they are.  I don't have a problem with someone researching that and coming to some conclusion.  The better question would be who cares?   They banned Enid Blighton books in schools because of the Golliwog and Mr Plod,   The world didn't end, and I know plenty of kids still read those books.

I would argue that attitudes and opinions are affected more by parents and peer groups than social media,  to illustrate my point,  how many flat earthers have been converted to globalists by arguments on this forum?

Probably none.
