Taking control of our media
Currently, they present a wealth of information, most of which we are not even aware that we are consuming. We simply enjoy reading or watching it without thinking too much about it. Within the media, however, are people such as advertisers who skillfully implant their ideas in our minds—such as that one company is better than another, or that without the newest gadget in the market our lives will not be worth calling a “life.” While these ideas are false, they sink into our minds and trouble our thoughts until we ease our minds by buying the advertised item.
Now, consider what would happen t if our minds were implanted with the idea that we are all interconnected, and that hurting others is just like hurting yourself. What would it be like if the world followed the motto— “If you’re not good, you’re no good”?
Seems to me that #meme’s are expressions of people … perhaps their thoughts … circulating around for others to pick up upon, or not. We each judge them when we hear and absorb them and accept or reject them just as we do.
#SelectiveSpending and selecting where we put our attention is certainly a great maxim expressed here as a meme.
The thing is that our meda is currently controlling much more of that attention for many of us than is healthy. We need to individually take back the control of our attention and stop deligating that to other random forces. ← my opinion of course … and also i believe that of the group which wrote the article.

Pro and con are just vectors. Yin and Yang. Positive and negative. North pole, south pole. Pro and con is an aspect of the natural world, the balance of contrast which makes experience visible. Being right, or wrong, is purely a human invention, and intervention.
Thought we were entering the Age of Aquarius, the age of truth, not the age of finger pointing and witch hunts. Aren’t we done with that? Focus on your excitement … it cannot lead you wrong, no matter what is leading and who’s truth it is.
