Writer Description: I get stoned and write
This writer has written 6 articles.
Most if not all of the conflict, anger, salt, and general discourse can be sourced back to mass outlets of information. Ie, the news.
Political, weather, local, entertainment, etc. These outlets all decide what they show and when they show it. And guess what gets the most views? Bad shit.
You see, if you're constantly alerting the common man about the next big cool or terrible thing, they're always going to tune in to see what's up. If you make a big flashy headline and your segment has fancy graphics, you're gonna feel yourself pulled in.
Thing is, people don't realize that bad shit is happening all the time. Meaning, injustice is the status quo of the world as much as is justice. Because people don't know this, they overreact, movements start, protests start, eventually riots break out. At that point everyone's completely forgotten what started this mess, but no one cares because there's a bad thing they need to yell about.
Sensationalism is the death of the moderates. Those in power want us in conflict with each other, because it divides us. They want us to focus on red herrings to turn our attention away from the slow, steady stripping away of freedom and independence.
This is a war between the 1 and the 99. It is a silent war, and the 99 are losing because they want to.
