FOG – Georgiann Carlson

the fog around us
is dense and dark
dark enough
to make it impossible
for us to see clearly
the fog has a name
several of them
but basically
they all mean the same thing
conditioning and  brainwashing
are two of the most common
it starts at birth
and it never stops
makes sure of that
they wrap their lies
in a thick layer of dogma
that they repeat
over and over
until some believe
that the lies are the truth
is what allows sexism and racism to exist
the establishment and religion
run by men
make sure we don’t stray
those who don’t believe the lies
are labeled enemies
they are tagged
and punished for their defiance
and disobedience
if you want to know
exactly what this looks like
you only have to look at Russia
at this very moment
Russia the perfect example
of conditioning and brainwashing
just don’t think it isn’t happening to us
because it is
the lies are all we know
and for those who fight back
the many labels placed upon them
are never easy to shake off

    1. People have been taught to let others think for them…that’s why governments can do what they do. People have had their power stolen from them without even knowing it. That’s what conditioning and brainwashing is all about. Thank you for your comment.
