Epihany of a mediated self

i am beginning to realize
that my entire life has been one
mediated by the forces of media
owned by those who owns the means of inscribing
onto and into me
... ideologies that are derived from institutions of power/knowledge
and control,
having its roots in the history of the interplay
between materialism and class,
and i have long realized that the feudal lords
in cahoot with the priest class
in control of water for irrigation and scriptures to numb the mind
-- these two culprit-classes of people
have reproduced me
in a clever matrix of production and reproduction,
such that i am no longer my true self,
that my true self actually do not exist,
except what is being told
by those who taught me the scriptures
of which the scriptures themselves have evolved,
written and rewritten,
revealed and re-revealed
in a complex system of evolution you and i are not aware of
except what is being told through
education,
indoctrination,
propaganda,
and a systematic colonization of the mind
by the neo-feudalistic rulers ...
this is what i am beginning to realize
and i am not happy with the revelation
and neither i am happy for all of you
and i now ask this question:
who is accountable for my definition,
false definition,
of a human being and what then must you and i do ... ?
in the meantime
i am ceasing to be myself as i know it and i now
will be known as
"the-one-who- used-to be-known-as-azly"

Wintermute,

Do you have other contributions to make for us, positive ones perhaps ?

Critiques could be appreciated but certainly not the abusive ad hominem type of yours.

Or, if you really are unable to appreciate aesthetics or to think critically and logically, you might just want to keep quiet.

i would be embarassed to have my posts deleted all the time knowing that my comments are not appreciated because of the low quality of opinions. shameful to say the least of constantly visiting this blog.

wintermute ... a friendly reminder ... you are not needed here. there is no value in your comments, let alone intelligence.

Welcome to the realm of Truth, the haqiqah. Quoting P.Ramlee's song..."Dunia ini hanya palsu, manusia berdusta"
The Truth/haqiqah has been corrupted. Paper,a "non money" has become real money while real money(gold has become a "non money"/a comodity.

Azly, you are an illiterate. You insult the English language but that is a mere blip compared to your lack of intellectual judgement and independence.

Repeat after me : Jew Howard Gardner , Jew Howard Zinn, Jew Antonio Gramsci, Jew Frankfurt School, et al, Jew - invented, Marxoid, intellectual movements that I have swallowed whole because of innate stupidity.

Wintermute,

Antisemitism has apparently clogged your brain, why don't you consult a psychologist or a psychiatrist ?

Oh! Maybe you can't because they all are Jews and you're so scared of Jews?

Wintermute,

Do you, then, love that theory of yours, namely: "The Love of Theory is the Root of All Evil" ?

Wintermute,

Apart from your antisemitic propensities, you also display serious symptoms of being socially and culturally autistic. Have you not consulted any doctors yet?
