News of the World that Liberals Never Hear

Fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda, liberals have no clue about the actual news

Published

on

In the recently released movie, News of the World, Tom Hanks plays a former Civil War captain for a Texas regiment who now makes his living by going from town to town reading newspapers to audiences. The town folk of that era were essentially isolated from what was happening in the rest of the country and the rest of the world. If that sounds familiar, today’s mainstream media readers – liberals – are in the same boat.

Fed a constant diet of leftist propaganda, and excluded from what’s occurring, most of them, sadly, have no clue as to what’s going on in the U.S. or around the world. Most have no idea about Biden’s outrageous blunders in the Middle East that are already heading us towards a new war in Syria.

Most have no idea how Biden enabled China to inexorably diminish U.S. power and influence while enhancing their own. Too many have zero understanding of how Biden’s dalliance with Iran threatens the world.

Life Without a Clue

Liberals have no clue as to the Biden crime family’s vast and blatant offenses against America. Many have no knowledge of Hunter Biden’s continuing nefarious activities with Ukraine, Russia, and elsewhere. Some still have only a scattershot understanding of the sexually aggressive behavior and utter mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo, although, thankfully his deeds are finally catching up to him, and he is in deep doo-doo.

Too many liberals have no idea that Joe Biden’s picks for various cabinet posts and other top positions are precarious at best, and that the credentials of the people he has nominated are highly questionable, even among Democrat congressional representatives and senators.

Only when you visit any news site on the internet, other than those dominated by “progressive Leftists,” you see that Joe Biden, or more specifically, his handlers, are making a mess domestically and internationally. One shudders to think what will happen if he and his utterly incompetent vice president remain in office for another terrifying 46 months.

The “Woke” are Brainwashed

A recent poll of Democrats proves to be illuminating. When asked what their number one concern is, unquestionably it is “Trump voters.” In other words, despite all the vital  events occurring here and abroad, the Leftist media machine has so utterly brainwashed their readership that these poor souls believe that somehow someway, Trump voters are the biggest problem confronting the country, followed by white nationalism, and systemic racism.

Those of us on the right are only mildly shocked. Shocked, yes, because the poll signifies how utterly brainwashed Democrats are. Only “mildly shocked” because we already understand that this group has been brainwashed for eons. It is not entirely surprising that Trump voters, continually demonized over weeks and months and even years, are now seen as the nation’s number one concern.

In 2021, for such an intellectual and informational chasm to exist is something for sociologists to study for years to come. How, in a world with the greatest information delivery machine that humankind has ever known – the Internet – can half of the populace be so utterly ignorant? The answer, seemingly, is that an “Information Iron Curtain” has descended upon them.

The Information Iron Curtain

Although they are free to click on alternative news sites and gain perspectives that cannot otherwise be gleaned from the sites they patronize each day, they do not make the attempt. The irony is that they are seconds away from gaining some semblance of objectivity.

Those on the right have no choice but to be exposed to the news and views of the Left all day long, every day, because the mainstream media dominates discourse in our society. We know what liberals are being told, and we know what conservatives are being told.

By contrast, liberals have no idea about conservatives, what they read and think, because the news that liberals acquire about conservatives arrives through the stringent filter of the mainstream media. And the mainstream media has no intention, ever, of offering a balanced perspective.

So Confident, So Wrong

In a world dominated by sound bites, too many on the left listen for only the first couple seconds of a broadcast, read only the headlines or the captions in a news article, and converse only with one another. They arrogantly proceed throughout their day confident in the knowledge that they know exactly what’s going on. As such, they “know” that Trump voters and their views are evil and need to be purged.

George Orwell called it accurately in 1984 when he described how newspeak –  propagandistic verbiage characterized by circumlocution, euphemism, and the inversion of customary meanings – dominated public discourse.

Fortunately, for now, newspeak only dominates among the people who won’t look any further. For the rest of us, we will continue to read multiple sources, ferret out what’s actually happening, separate the wheat from the chaff, and ignore stories that rely on anonymous sources and alleged spokespersons to strive to learn what is true.

I’ve spoken to 1075 audiences at conventions, conferences, and meetings, and have had the opportunity to hear probably 800 other speakers as well.

The insights, perspectives, or wisdom we need, to get us going often don’t have to be more than a few words. Here are 52 of my own six word “speeches,” drawn from my keynotes and breakout session on the topic of work-life balance. Some of these likely will resonate with you:

Choose from what you already have.
Everyone needs breathing space, especially you.
Information overload obscures meaning and relevance.

Work-Life Balance in Your Life

It the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life

Published

on

Work-life balance (WLB) is the ability to experience a sense of control and to stay productive and competitive at work while maintaining a happy, healthy home-life with sufficient leisure. WLB, also referred to by some as work-life harmony, work-life shift, work-life blend, work-life effectiveness, or work-life integration, requires focus and awareness despite seemingly endless tasks and activities competing for our time and attention.

Work-life balance entails having what I call “breathing space” for yourself each day, feeling a sense of accomplishment while not being consumed by work, and having an enjoyable domestic life without short-changing career obligations. WLB is rooted in whatever fulfillment means to you within the course of a day and a week, and however many years you have left in your life.

Supporting Disciplines

Several disciplines support work-life balance though, individually, none are synonymous with work-life balance:

1) Self Management

Sufficiently managing one’s self can be challenging, particularly in getting proper sleep, exercise, and nutrition. Self-management is the recognition that effectively using the spaces in our lives is vital, and that life, time, and available resources are finite. It means becoming captain of our own ship; no one is coming to steer for us.

2) Time Management

Effective time management involves making optimal use of your day and the supporting resources that can be summoned – you can only keep pace when your resources match your challenges. Time management is enhanced through appropriate goals and discerning what is both important and urgent, versus important OR urgent. It entails understanding what you do best and when, and assembling the appropriate tools to accomplish specific tasks.

3) Stress Management

By nature, societies tend to become more complex over time. In the face of increasing complexity, stress on the individual is inevitable. More people, noise, and distractions, independent of one’s individual circumstances, require each of us to become more adept at maintaining tranquility and being able to work ourselves out of pressure-filled situations. Most forms of multi-tasking ultimately increase our stress, while focusing on one thing at a time helps decrease stress.

4) Change Management

In our fast-paced world, change is virtually the only constant. Continually adopting new methods, adapting old, and re-adapting all methods is vital to a successful career and a happy home life. Effective change management involves offering periodic and concerted efforts so that the volume and rate of change at work and at home does not overwhelm or defeat you.

5) Technology Management

Effectively managing technology requires ensuring that technology serves you, rather than abuses you. Technology has always been with us, since the first walking stick, spear, flint, and wheel. Today, the rate of technological change is accelerating, brought on by vendors seeking expanding market share. Often you have no choice but to keep up with the technological Joneses, but rule technology, don’t let it rule you.

6) Leisure Management

The most overlooked of the work-life balance supporting disciplines, leisure management acknowledges 1) the importance of rest and relaxation, 2) that “time off” is a vital component of the human experience, and 3) that one can’t indefinitely short-change leisure without repercussions. Curiously, too much of the same leisure activity, however enjoyable, can lead to monotony. Thus, effective leisure management requires varying one’s activities.

Entirely Achievable

Achieving work-life balance does not require radical changes in what you do. It is about developing fresh perspectives and sensible, actionable solutions that are appropriate for you. It is fully engaging in life with what you have, right where you are, smack dab in the ever-changing dynamics of your existence.
