what percentage of people are skeptical?


Recommended Posts

Just wondering what peoples' thoughts are.

What percentage of people in the UK do you reckon are skeptical about what the government are telling us, on any level?

 

On the face of it my experience is about 30% of people I come into contact with, but they are all my friends, or connected to my network in some way.

 

Of the randoms I don't know at all or very well, it seems like 0%. I don't think I've had one conversation with someone not within my friendship network (besides one old man I used to garden for) who questions anything.

 

Is this because people are thinking things and having private conversations at home, but not making their feelings widely known?

 

I don't air my views unless I am sure of the other person's views. Perhaps I should.

In my circle of people, other than me and my wife, and one other couple, literally everybody else is absolutely petrified about the virus.  They see the BBC as the bastion of true news and their trusted go to source for all information.  These people, that seemingly hated and distrusted politicians until 2020 now hold these same people up on such high pedestals that they hang on their every word.

 

There is no reasoning or talking to them.  If you dare to even ask a question or doubt their truth, then you're entirely shot down and classed as a conspiracy theorist nut job with no care for the welfare or health of others.

 

That is the reality of what we're up against, there is no hope 😔

People are crazy.

 

I've shown people news stuff before that is on RT and been told "you can't believe any of that, that's all Russian propaganda on there" or similar, but then the same people believe everything the BBC says, without even questioning that it might be "all British propaganda". It's just insane that people are so quick to jump to an opinion about one thing, but then don't question the other side at all.

Don't worry, once the elites replace the pound with a digital currency and remove everyones private property and insist you have a microchip implanted in your hand in order to access your paltry digital currency handout from the state so that you can buy some meagre rations from the smart-store everyone will be on the same page...of course by then it will be too late to do anything about it....

I have never, and would not bother trying to convince anyone in public of anything.

 

The people are summed up by, everyone who leaves school think they know everything. No matter how rubbish of an education they got, or how good that education was, everyone is convinced by day they leave school they know it all.

 

Schools teach people to believe this, and it works well.

 

But what most do not appreciate is that school was set up mainly for repeaters. That means you just learnt mainly to repeat something back to something in exams, you just learnt. Yep, repeating is a skill that can be important, but that does not mean they are capable of original thought.

 

Most people only wake upto the world, in there 30's, but if you wake up before, your in the minority, as most before 30, just want partners, drink or what ever, ie socialising.

 

So, mostly if you ignore people before 30, as most likely they are just interested mainly in things most young people are interested in. That means that most people only wake up after 30 or so, and alot of them lack any real personal knowledge on any subjects that will help them acquire more knowledge. The world of the net is full of con artists, and most people who lack any real personal knowledge, will only acquire knowledge due to having to place trust in others for it.

 

So for me, all that added up, i doubt many are willing to care too much about how anything works, that does not directly affect them.

 

Look at youtube, and i would suspect most famous channels, are mainly idiot channels, where people know most people choose the video for clickbait, and the video has no real info or anything worthwhile, other then you watching a fool.

 

So although i cannot answer your question, as i do not talk to any number of people. I can safely say, that most people do not care about anything, or are willing to learn about any of the truther stuff, unless there life is directly affected by it.

 

My attitude, is that everyone is a know it all. Good for them, they know mostly everything about nothing, but thats there life.

 

If they were meant to know about stuff, there life experience would of shoved them to know it, or learn it, in how many different ways life teaches people.

 

I believe in freewill, so i do not agree with forcing my views on others. If someone wants to read what i write, fine. If you do not, fine, i do not mind. Most people though for what ever reason do not believe in others freewill.

 

So all in all, those who want to know about what ever stuff your on about will want to find out, or listen to someone, because they lack there own personal knowledge. For most people they already know everything(even though they know very little), so leave them too it.

 

I will just finish this, by saying, i doubt anyone on earth has 1% of total human knowledge, no matter who they are. How arrogant they are, to assume then, that they know exactly what the truth is, when most of the time, they would not know the truth if it was right in front of there face.

 

Just think for a second, on how much knowledge do you think the average person has, or needs to live there life. Most people have very little knowledge, when you compare that to all the human knowledge combined. While they are like this, they all assume that they know everything.

^^

Me personally, just say let them believe that if they choose. Its there life.

Looking at the traffic in my city and people walking past each other on pavements, but even more important of all is the panic within and the lengths the msm and the usual suspects in government are trying to ‘convince’ people how serious Covid 19 is. I have noticed this today especially. Why are they doing it? They do it because they can see people are seeing through this bs (would they need to tell us how dangerous covid 19 was if it really were as deadly as they say?) I would say a very high percentage think it is BS. One thing for sure......any surveys which will no doubt soon start appearing are total and utter BS and that you can guarantee!
