It's super cool we have this platforms called HIVE and 3Speak allowing absolute freedom of speech. But we all shall realise: Freedom is not only a right, but also comes with responsibilities. One of the most important responsibility is for each and every one of us to be sceptical when we take in the information we being exposed to. When we are not questioning statements made by others, when we don't want to understand if such statement is true or not; Freedom will never be. We will end up in societies of massive control. Think 1984.
Are we ready to accept freedom?
Though I believe in the good of people (a must for all those who like to progress towards more free societies), every time I'm confronted with the fact more than just a few individuals believe in the unbelievable, none substantiated narratives, claims that can be nothing else than false. And they not only believe them, but become more and more vocal about them; Not only in their own real world circles, but also on the internet where massive amounts of people can be lured into the abyss of miss information.

This weekend it's all about the election results in the US. A larger group of republican voters, actually believe the whole election was rigged. The democrats wanted to win so badly, they massively altered the voting results. Some of them are active on HIVE. I just hope the majority of our community is able to handle them accordingly...
Question, Question and again Question whatever claims are made!
I left comments and questions to several posts published onto our HIVE chain (through 3Speak as well as through some of the regular HIVE blogging services). Either I got no reaction at all, or I got evasive or off topic responses. Am sorry, but I can't call these responses, answers.
An answers is a piece of information that explains something someone else requested for, often in form of a question.
Today I watches two videos. One was about what is required to influence the US elections on a massive scale. The guy got so much negative response, he felt the need to record another video talking about Freedom versus Control: Talking about the responsibilities for all of us, when we like to live in a more free society than we are living in today. That video is spot on! His words are my thoughts! I wish I had the same ability to create words like he does; But I don't. Therefore I won't spend too much time blabbering anymore, other than to say: "I fully agree with what this guy says: As him, I do believe in the good of people; As him, I like to live in a more free society; Unlike him, I think we are a long way away from something like that to happen. Simply because a too large a number of people are gullible, naive, and refrain from questioning whatever someone else tells them.
Many conspiracy theorist say: "Wake Up; You need to Wake Up!"
I ask you all the same:
Please Wake Up!
Become the sceptic!
Otherwise we will never be able to live in freedom!
