    Listening is already difficult enough for most people as they have a tendency to hear someone out to talk and not to listen.

    Great video! Thanks for sharing!

    Hmmm, not bad, but l didn't agree with Warren Buffets one, sure l can speak in front of a small group, but have no interest in speaking in front of hundreds. Easier to get their emails.

    Also the black guy, talking about dumbing down of society, is an understatement, or suppressing ideas, with more crap.

    I see that all of the time on tv, with more stations and more reruns, usually of sitcoms or shows that were canned. Or more present day BS, shows.

    Probably explains why l am watching Time Tunnel, and the Twilight Zone, with MASH, and a renovation show on FTA tv, (the only one) on the side.

    It inspires you to create, while a f***ing show about the X Factor with children, (and probably scripted interviews) inspires boredom, depression and stagnation, (magicians, are past thrashed to death, and should die gracefully or do the retirement village circuit).

    But you can always count on the ad's to blast you out of your chair?

      the funny part about the dummbing down of society line..is it assumes there was a time average people where much smarter than now ..yeah you can go back 100 years and look at school text books before there was mass free eduction and see what the children of those with the ability to pay for their kids schooling ..learned 100 years ago..

      but it still a time when most kids lived on the farm or worked in factories at young ages ..

      there is no time in the past thing where better for most people than right now ..i say that even being homeless right now ..where i am i am still living better than 6 billion people on the planet..i have access to food, a place to jump on free wifi most of the day . clean drinkable water several places.. and if i get hurt .. a hospital a short distance away ..that won't put me in jail for not paying the bill ..

      and then think bout what you had to go through to learn anything new before 10 or 20 years ago..

      need to learn to cook something new.. good luck without some real work..now watch youtubes from the celebrity chefs and other people just showing you how to cook ..

      you no longer have to fill your head with a lot of information you might need at some point in the future and by that time totally forget..

        True, and l would say that most of us here, appreciate your determination.

        But dumbing down, so called smart phones also dumb down society, as it has been shown, by filling our heads with mindless, endless information.

        Except me, l would rather go to the shopping ctr, and look ahead when walking not stare aimlessly into one of those dumb things, since it is too big to fit in my pocket and l have to carry it around, and if l have to carry it around l will use it while walking.

        And then almost walk into others not staring aimlessly into that.

        Yeah, geniuses create products that create idiots.

        Just as long as the idiots keep coughing up, which they do, after all $600 a year for the same phone, with dodgy face reg, and a better camera, is worth it.


        Their is some truth in what you are saying, but l am more along the lines of thinking potential.

        Pretty hard to create wealth, think outside the box, and break through established barriers, when your mind is numb from mindless looking up Facebook entries all day, then watching more medicare movies or mediocre reality shows, (which are really at p***s weak, mental levels).

        I mean cooking shows geesh, talk about mental ma*****n, "l love to cook", my family needs me to win" blah, blah, blah.

        So since they love to cook and are passionate about it, we get almost 24 hours of this mindless, parroted, S***t.

        Different faces, every year, but same crap!

        Yep free to air and dumb phones, and brainwashing since birth will keep a lid on all of the scary stuff, and won't scare the sheep in the paddock.

          most people have no idea what wealth really is by most i mean a good 95 percent..so expecting them to do anything to build it ..is kind of dumb to idiotic on a spectrum of expectations .. and when there is a effort by a chunk of those with built up wealth.. to keep the masses misinformed ..so they can make even more money ..

          Blaming the masses for not knowing runs even worse than blaming the people on a plane that crashes .. for being on the plane ..

          now i will get into a rant .. the problem is not the dummbing down of people .. far from it ..if 10 million people are walking around texting every day.. and 1 gets run over by a day ..rather than celebrating stupid people removing themselve from the gene pool.. and making the other 10-100 million people aware of the risk ..

          government official rush to ban walking while text.. so you now can get choked to death by a police officer for walking while texting ..

          this isn't theory there are cities accroos the Usa putting laws through ..but of course when you criminalize everything ..it makes it real easy not to do anything about real crime ..so the system gets dummber

    well the lid is off the scary stuff ..that why most people are walking around with their faces in the phones ..but is it any worse than the mindless shit people used to do. now with their faces in the phones fewer people are getting cable tv .. and more people are canceling it..

    and fewer and fewer people are going to the malls or shopping center.. at least in the USA and many will close in the next five or ten years..


    people are less inclined to go to fast casual dining resteraunts .. because they are cooking more and drinking less beer .. or less big brand beer ..

    I don't think many people build wealth selling products only to smart people ..and the people who think they are smarter than most .. are usually the idiots in front of the camera ..

    The world economy would break .. without enough " idiots "willing to buy a 600 dollar phone every year ..or if people started preparing all their food at home . it is in danger of breaking because most of the sheep can't take on any more debt, are not making me money every year .. and are paying more for rent and health care every year .. so there is less and less dumb money to spend ..

    Unless of course you sell stuff to rich or wealthy people .. and know how to serve the dumb money tastes

    Perhaps, but they tend to put unnecessary barriers up and then get p****d at you for tearing them down.

    I had a family member do that, he tended to think that he know it all about online wealth, so assumed that me buying a high end Laptop, and trying were stupid.

    Recently he finally asked, and has finally come to his senses.

    Keep the masses misinformed, hmmm, no l would rather bop the elite!

    Blaming the masses for not knowing runs even worse than blaming the people on a plane that crashes .. for being on the plane ..

    Good to know, and yeah, l have seen f***wits walking across a road against the lights, and almost get run over, by cars turning, (since he didn't look, or was too busy seeing if his friend on FB, replyed to his question about training your cat to rap-dance).

    That is the true definition here, assuming that you will be ok, with one of these things in your hand, a bit like a cameraman filming a tiger eating someone.

    So l guess that a dumbphone also gives you a false sense of security. But yeah, only an idiot would assume that a handheld device will protect you against a car hitting you.

    Blaming people for dying on a plane, not really, l blame the ones who know that the plane is going to crash, and not step on the plane, for not saying anything!

      i bet every plane has someone who does not get on it because they know it will crash..

      If a person gets run over and killed because they are to busy to pay attention to their surrounding while using their cell phone..it is really on them..if you have 10s of millions of people walking around with cell phones and it is more like a billion on the planet today ..and a few hundred a week get themselves killed..

      you really do not need to punish everyone ..treating everone like they are dumb f*&*&s eventually pi^^es the masses off ..

      It's Part of why i am homeless right now ..a few street performers where messing up ignorng the law.. so instead of going after them ..they city,casinos and cops went after everyone ..

      one person get ill and dies from eating improperly cured salami ..and everyone who make it is banned from selling it and everyone who wants it has to go to vblack market sources to get the type they want ..

      Dumbing down is not a problem..otherwise people in areas with not of the tech ..would be smarter than those with the tech.. the real problem..and this is horrible to say but not racist ..don't read this and be a dumb ass thinking i am talking about minority..

      smart people go childless or have 1 or 2 kids at most..now you do have inteligent and traditional couples who stay married and have many children..

      but dumb less educated people breed at a much faster rate and have more children who grow up in poverty and very bad environment that have a negative effect on intelectual growth ..

        True, blaming everyone, is a tough act, since it boils down to breaking established brainwashing practices, which is possible, but not easy.

        And yeah, stupid hoon drivers drive at high speed down a road with familys, and before you know it, we get speed humps, or we all suffer for a handful of F***witted 20+ year olds, that don't get it til they murder a child, (even then some still don't).

        In the meantime, wealthy suburban areas, have very wide streets, and No speed humps in sight? I guess that they have more civilized children.

        And people who trust in new, unproven tech, 100%, more power to them at least until the tech fails, (tech does fail, Apollo 13, showed that faults can occur) and they and the tech, ends up wrapped around a tree.

    don't have to break brainwashing patterns.. that is what i got from studying marketing ..because that has been the main form of brain washing for near 100 years .. used in western populations without establish class structures ..

    by learning the tools that where used to condition you.. you can both detect when marketing is trying to condition you.. and block or go along ..or learn to use the tools to re condition yourself .

    the world we live in now puts more and more of the power over your life in your hands .. there is no them to fight ..no elite to stick it to.. see how the game is played and cose to learn the tools to play the game how you want ..

    the majority of people have no idea what wealth really is ..in fact they are taugh the opposite through history ..

    prior to industrial era .. the wealth was the land and the wealthy where the land owners ..who the taught the peasant who worked the land that wealth was really the crops they grew.. most of which went to the land owner as rent ..which when to the nobil/king as tribute ..

    in the industrial are the wealth shifted to those who had the money to lend out to build factories and stores ..and to keep this system growing you needed the masses to be consumers ..so you taught them wealth was the house they owned the car they drove and all the stuf they could stuff in the house ..

    all while the real wealth was the factories that built the cars the stores that sold the stuff and the marketing channels to get it to the buyers.. as long as the peasant fell in line and worked in the system in order to earn the paycheck to buy the stuff they need .. or where coninvced they needed ..

    during the latter part of the industrial era and into this point the wealth shifted into financial product and to the owners of debt .. so the masses where and are .. now being trained that their status is dependent on the ability to go into debt and keep up with the debt payments ..

    We are actually in a time where there is a new economic system that has been developing for 20-30 years .. and its at the point of drawing off the old economic system and it is the main reason there has yet to be another crash thet the old system was prone to every 7-8 years ..

    Just need to step into the new economic system ..

      well we in a new tiem.. so drinking a bottle of water in a 16 ounce bottle that cost 4 bucks and drinking a 7 dollar coffee made from fair trade been ..make you elite and woke .. and much cooler than the normal people out there ..

      We make fun of this but if you want to market or sell stuff.. and make good chunks of money.. you have to understand the story people tell themselves to justify paying much more ..than average ..what can you do .. to make people belive less than 1 cent worth of water and a 3 cent bottle.. is worth 3-4 dollars ..

      you imaire your long term earning ability if you believe people are dunb or idiots for spending that money ..

    Here is the thing,
    I keep talking about a shift and a new economy. but not really giving details ..because the details are boring .. but in this thread i have pointed out the key factors in the old system.. that has been a part of that thing we consider civilization for the last 10,000 years .. where the real wealth was /is controlled by a few or a small percentage of the population .. and the vast majority of those in the system ..worked and had most of the value they produced taken from them ..buy those above them in the system .


    That fundamentally has changed

    That "idiot" who bought the 600$ phone has a camera they can shoot high quality photos and make high quality videos .. that beat the quality of 10,000 dollar cameras 10 years ago .. so with a few thousand in equipment ..you can post to you tube,face book and Instagram ..and build a following ..that would have taken millions of dollars to do 10 or 20 years ago

    I made a living for 16 months being in a costume people wanted to take picture with me and send them to their friends post to Instagram or face book .. and got paid off tips off ..but the sytem didn't like shearing their money with us..so the y changed the rules and made it harder and harder to earn money .until i could not earn enough ..and ended up on the street ..

    For many other reasons i needed to get out of it anyway ..not really a victim it is just the easiest quickest reason i can list .. But the entire 16 months taught me a lot that i can incorporate into my long term wealth building plan.

    Most of all is how the system works and as a build my wealth ..the many ways the sytem makes it easier .. verse just making higher income .. that the system punishes
