The Story of Zoe Alexander: X Factor Exposed

The horrible deception and manipulation of an X Factor hopeful.

On this website, I honor Truth and Integrity as shown by these articles:

When News Media Lies
How Do We Find the Truth?
Why is Having Integrity so Hard?

and so when I see an obvious case of deception and injustice, I have to call it out. And one of my key goals is to work on spreading awareness on many different subjects; and since this topic was recently brought to my attention and it is one in which I used to partake in, I had to address it.

Now, my history and perhaps that of others, may be able to relate. I used to watch X-Factor, American Idol, American’s Got Talent, etc., etc. It bemused me to see all the auditions and, in my younger days, I am ashamed to admit, I joined the judges in scoffing and ridiculing the wild and/or awkward contestants with their off-key singing and strange behavior. It was entertaining, to say the least, which was the point.

But behind this obvious spectacle, it was lost on myself and others, that these were real people with real feelings who had heartfelt hopes and dreams and their own individual personality.

Now, I can simply attribute this to myself being “young and stupid” and not knowing any better. But, you know, that’s a cop out, if I may say so. After all, my Mom taught me to be nice to others. (Or she tried to, I should say.) I was also bullied as a child. So much so that in turn I became a bully myself. Again, not proud of it at all, but such is life when people go through certain emotional trauma. But I should have been understanding and more compassionate while viewing these t.v. shows. Most of them are real people putting their heart on the line. I say “most” because I have a suspicion that they hired actors as well to bring more entertainment value to their program.

And thankfully, after my negative and bitter stage, I began to feel the emotions of other people and realized that everyone is special and important and that all of us deserve to be treated with love and respect. This is actually both a curse and a blessing, because even the slightest thing can trigger me and my heart feels it, and instantly I’ll want to cry. I never used to be this way, but with some divine help and natural maturing, it’s opened my eyes to seeing people as precious and we should treat everyone right.

Blast to the Past

That brings me to Zoe Alexander’s case and many others (and a harsh look at myself with how I used to be…)

I remember over a year ago, I felt compelled to go down the nostalgia trail and re-watch some of these auditions. I used to love watching them. I would tune in for every episode but was mostly interested in the initial auditioning process.

Imagine my surprise when after watching a few, I realized I didn’t enjoy it as much. In fact, I was feeling more and more uncomfortable and disturbed that these judges (most of them, anyway), were downright cruel and dismissive. Especially if the participant didn’t fit their “ideal image”.

Again, I used to LOVE watching these episodes. Now, I felt a deep cringe inside of me; not because of the awkwardness of the people auditioning, but because my heart went out for them that they were being treated this way. The people that I used to snicker and laugh at, I now felt a huge compulsion to hug and let them know that they’re beautiful and who cares what these “judges” think.

(Of course, that was the whole point of the auditioning process, supposedly – to be judged. But what many didn’t know at the time is how staged this whole ordeal was.)

What used to be a guilty pleasure of mine now washed over me in shame. At the time, I didn’t realize how cruel my actions of laughing at these potential contestants through the screen actually was.

Enter in Zoe Alexander

Zoe Alexander on the X-Factor UK

Zoe Alexander from The X Factor UK

When I first saw this young performer, I thought she looked great, happy, and sweet. Yes, her apparent obsession with Pink was a little strange, and there was an interesting nod to her parents that they were also tribute artists (of course, at the time, we didn’t realize that this was all a setup to make her and her family look like star-wannabe’s), but her performance was fun and I thought she did really well.

Then we come to the judges who are “allegedly” confused about this contestant’s desire to want to stray from Pink, yet still choose to do a Pink song. Out of the kindness of their heart’s, of course (#sarcasm), they allow her to try a different song.

Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to sway the judges and they lamented that if only she would have strayed away from the Pink impersonation, she might have had a chance.

The look on Zoe’s face was devastating. The realization that she had been had can be seen by anyone re-watching this scene and knowing the “real” story. But to those who were tricked and manipulated (i.e. – the whole t.v. viewing audience) into believing a certain narrative, their takeaway of these events was simply that Zoe had her chance, and she blew it – then went into a full blown temper tantrum.

When Zoe yelled out that they made her do a Pink song, the judges and audience can be heard displaying their shock at her audacity to accuse them of such, especially since this never occurred during the audition. The judges kept reiterating how they never said anything like that, and it was her choice to sing it and that they even gave her a second chance.

The t.v. audience was left with an edited mess; painting Zoe as an ungrateful, deluded, angry character that was perhaps one of the most violent contestants they’ve ever had – that a lot of us fell for.

After seeing this audition, my opinion of this sweet, happy demeanor of this young lady changed to that of bewilderment and “Woah… that sure escalated quickly.”

Since I knew, even at that time, that editing was certainly a possibility, I wasn’t too quick to jump on the wagon that Zoe was delusional and her anger was misplaced. But I was taken aback that my initial opinion of her was so wrong. Still, something nagged in the back of my mind that something wasn’t quite right. The words that they told her to sing a Pink song kept reverberating inside and I thought, “She wouldn’t have said that without a good reason.” And sure, they could have edited that bit out of the show, but the pure disbelief and confoundment on her face told me a different story.

I even attempted to do a little research then and there about it, but since it was still so new and fresh, the only things I found about it were all deprecating articles and videos about a lady who went on a rage-filled tantrum on the show.

Videos by Zoe Alexander Sheds New Light

Zoe Alexander XFactor The Truth
Zoe Alexander Part 2 XFactor The Truth

In this exposé that came out on July 19, 2020 and August 18, 2020, Zoe reveals how the producers of the show encouraged her to choose a Pink song even though it was her desire to get away from the Pink persona and do different artists to display a different range of her abilities and her search to be herself.

The producers, however, made it clear to her that she would not be advancing unless she did Pink. In her original email to them, she wrote the 5 songs that they asked her to submit, which was all her own decision. After receiving word back from them asking her to put Pink instead, she finally caved and listened to their “advice”.

From here, the sordid tale takes off into a twisted, confusing, heartbreaking ordeal that ended with Zoe Alexander suffering from an emotional breakdown on The X Factor. To say that the producers were deliberately trying to manufacture this emotional outburst is an understatement.

As Zoe relates, one of the producers even urged the cameraman to keep his camera on her, even as the cameraman visibly felt uncomfortable doing so, knowing how devastatingly upset Zoe Alexander was after realizing she was used this whole time. Once the producers felt that they had enough footage, they had no more need of her and finally left her alone.

This is absolutely heartbreaking that they would simply use and abuse someone in this highly emotional state. Just getting up in front of four judges is enough to unsettle nerves, much less getting up in front of four stern judges and an entire audience, and knowing that it could be aired on national t.v. What she thought was an honest and uplifting chance at her start to stardom, ended up being an awful set up from the very beginning.

I can’t even begin to imagine the hurt and disbelief she was in, as well as her family. To see one’s child subjected to this terrible harassment must have been excruciating.

“Investigation” Ensues

Even before these videos came out, I had heard about Zoe Alexander’s story around the internet. Of course, there will be people demanding “actual proof”, which, yes, we should do, but did anyone “demand proof” that Zoe Alexander really did choose her own songs? Why is it always left to the “little people” to be demanded to show proof of any wrong doing or to clear their name? Why do we not demand this of the big industries themselves?

After all, if these big corporations are as squeaky clean as some people surmise, then it should be no problem for them to provide proof in full, unedited versions of all of the tapes of Zoe Alexander and her family, much less that of the countless other victims candidates that went on the show to prove their innocence in the defamation of character and emotional trauma that they are accused of inflicting upon numerous people.

And yes, perhaps all these huge companies will have legal documents and signed forms that protect them from certain liabilities and such, and then we have the lovely government agencies whose purpose, in part, is: “We also help to make sure people don’t get scammed and are protected from bad practices. This is particularly important for vulnerable or older people.” such as is from the Ofcom regulator that investigated Zoe Alexander’s claims and found nothing untowards on the X Factor’s end.

…Oh. Don’t forget to read the red part I circled on the bottom of the page. It seems like it would be a pertinent part in why Ofcom wouldn’t see any suspicious activity from a company that is, perhaps, funding them…

Ofcom website showing its regulations.
“We are independent, and funded by fees paid to us by the companies we regulate.”

Sure seems like that would give them an incentive to not penalize a company that provides their paycheck. But perhaps my assumptions are unfounded and merely ridiculous speculation. After all, if someone was paying you exorbitant amounts of money, of course you wouldn’t mind them going out of business based on claims that you could easily refute simply by saying so. And it’s not like these companies are in cahoots or anything… The government working with the media? Surely you jest.

<<< Operation Mockingbird >>>

Sure this may simply be baseless accusations… On the other hand, it’s equally as likely, if not more so, that there’s a ring of truth to this theory (or a full out chorus of bells ringing and angels singing, “Hallelujah, someone’s finally got it!”)

There’s also an interesting correlation between what Zoe Alexander relates with her visit from the dailymail editor. It’s a very startling account, and a huge eye-opener into the “journalism” that’s going on. Remember, this event happened in 2012.

After Zoe’s meltdown on the X Factor, her family had a visit from the dailymail editor.

In Zoe’s words about what the editor allegedly said, which should raise alarm bells to everyone: “It doesn’t matter what you said; it’s only what we say you said. And it doesn’t matter what you do; it only matters what we say you do.”

It reminds me of this interesting tidbit, courtesy of Mika Brzezinski / MSNBC:

“The dangerous edges here are that he’s (Donald Trump) trying to undermine the media, trying to make up his own facts, and it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens he could have undermined the messaging so much that he could actually control, uh, exactly what the people think, and that is, that is our job.”Mika Brzezinksi – (

UPDATE: Another youtube account deleted. Here is the original video that can now be found on the web archive (unless that gets deleted as well…)

I don’t think enough people know about these underhanded tactics from the media and government to control what the people think. It ranges from anything about politics, to world wide economics, to the entertainment industry… to anything and everything in between.

And why would the media want to portray certain people in a bad light? Is it simply for views and entertainment? Money? Advertisements? Is the whole world just one gigantic soap opera and we’re the unwitting performers?

Seems like a huge conspiracy, but don’t forget, a lot of the alleged false flags and conspiracy theories involving these shady practices have been confirmed. MK Ultra is no longer a theory. It is found to be true. The fact that the CIA works with the media is proven. Many whistleblowers have spoken out to bring awareness to this egregious agenda to control what the population think. And with their stranglehold over the media, we are subjected to information that they want us to “know”, and we are blinded from their suppression of things that they don’t want us to know.

The fact that these industries can get away with shamelessly bashing someone’s identity and persona for as frivolous a reason as entertainment and ratings that turn into money should heed as a wake-up call to us all to step off of these platforms and not participate in their viewership or consumerism. When we can show them that we won’t tolerate bullying and abuse and emotional exploitation on others, and that we won’t tolerate being indoctrinated and herded into a certain propaganda mindset, when we make the conscious decision to turn the program off, these “businesses” will no longer have their audience and they will lose their destructive hold on us.

It should also alert us to the fact that we cannot believe everything we see or hear on t.v., social media, news, radio, etc., etc. We need to be aware that not everything is as it seems and we need to work on developing our critical thinking skills and discernment. Don’t fall into the manipulation system that tptsb (“the powers that shouldn’t be”) have set up for us.

Growing Support for Zoe

I hope that Zoe Alexander and others like her that have suffered through this emotional and psychological trauma know just how much people really do care about them and, at least speaking for myself, am deeply regretful about believing the portrayal that this industry has painted them. I’m glad that I was able to grow out of this stage and learn some truths about the wool that was pulled over viewer’s eyes.

Thankfully, I’m not the only one, as there are others that are now coming to see the light.

Screenshot taken from The X Factor UK ( – Zoe Alexander’s Audition

It’s interesting to note that this particular X Factor Youtube video of Zoe Alexander has the comments turned off, from the X Factor UK’s own channel. And over 160,000 dislikes. Almost twice the amount as that of the likes. It’s almost as if people are starting to realize the truth of how this show wrongly depicted Zoe Alexander and set her up to be a patsy for people’s amusement… Of course, with the comments turned off, we can’t really tell on this page… only come to the most logical conclusion.

However, as this other channel has the same audition (and might be deleted in due time), I have decided to screenshot some of the more recent comments that were made merely hours ago:

Some other supportive and enlightened comments from this video I’ve decided to highlight here:
luvme ツ
I remember when I first watched this episode long ago it made me think she was aggressive for no reason, but now that the truth is all out i genuinely feel bad for Zoe. Shes been set up as a laughing stock. Justice for Zoe!!
McDanes kaiser Abad
can literally see in her eyes when she realized she was being played 💔 nobody deserves that f this show
Tony Gonzales
she WANTED to find herself but they literally told her to sing a pink song. She was so wrongly set up and it makes me feel horrible for her 🙁 .
This makes so much more sense now. I feel awful for judging her all those years ago, her reaction is completely understandable. I’ve lost so much respect for the show

A lot of this sudden support and popularity can be traced back to this tiktok user: @thatsmypurseidontknowyou

It’s amazing the amount of support and encouraging words that Zoe is getting now, and this is exactly as it should be. We should all be taking care of each other and showing our love and support, no matter what the circumstance. Even if Zoe had no justifiable reason for doing what she did (although we now know how wrongly she was used and her hurt and humiliation is completely understandable), the fact that everyone needs love and compassion instead of scorn and derision should be impressed upon us; and if we see someone lashing out, let us pray for them and hold them in our hearts and wish them the best, that their hurt and anger can be healed.

We should also pray that those involved in these schemes may come around and realize the errors of their ways, and change their hearts to caring about people and no longer taking part in these manipulative, corrupted agendas.

Media Addiction – Does Media Affect Our Thoughts? pt. 3

Think you think for yourself?
Well, think again.

When I was younger, I used to think that all the people that claimed that violence on t.v., movies, music, etc. made on impression on us, were ridiculous.

I ardently believed that people were conscious enough to come to their own decisions and thought patterns, and ridiculed those that speculated otherwise.

Perhaps that was me jumping on the bandwagon of mocking the alleged “conspiracy theorists”. Calling them crazy and uninformed.

Well, who's laughing now?

(Well, I suppose it’s no laughing matter, but at least I’ve finally come to the realization that I was wrong.)

Before I delve in, what do you think? Are you here on this page because you believe the same thing? Or are you here because you think it’s a ridiculous concept like I once did?

Expanding Awareness Relations

If you’ve read my previous posts: How do we Find the Truth? and When News Media Lies, you already know about the levels of deception and manipulation that these “sources” have propagated to the population. (With the help of the CIA, I might add.)

So is it that much of a stretch to contemplate on this idea?

If that’s not enough of a reason, I will be addressing other points that might provide a little more insight into this kind of “mind control” programming.

Welcome to the 3rd part of this series “Does Media Affect Our Thoughts” – “Media Addiction”.

Slave to Social Media?

If you’ve had any foray into the social media blowout, I think most of us can admit, at some point in our life, that we have been reeled in by the “glamour” and whirlwind of a social media online presence.

I had a brief bout of this on a few media platforms. I won’t say the names of them (a couple of them were popular forums – some, not some well-known), but during that brief time even I could feel the pull of the social media attraction and allure.

And, perhaps surprisingly, I don’t have a facebook account. I refuse to get one, as a matter of fact. But I think with as many people who do have one know, the appeal of getting views and comments and likes can be quite euphoric. Just having the positive feedback can boost one’s self-esteem.

However… on the flip side, not getting any comments or views, or getting a lot of dislikes (or no likes/dislikes in general), negative feedback… can have a detrimental effect. This particular topic will be covered more later in this post when I address depression and anxiety.

But to continue with the slave-type addiction to media, what are your thoughts? Do you, personally, feel as if you’re addicted? Do you see your friends, families, classmates, etc. fallen victim to this scenario?

A common theme I see is when everyone (and I mean, absolutely everyone) in a particular area is on their phone. Perhaps you’ve seen the same situation. Unless you were eyes-deep into your phone as well.

With everyone distracted by their phones, if anything important happened around you, would you know?
Most of us own a phone, or a tablet, laptop... all of the above, even. But can we make the conscious decision to put these devices away to appreciate the world around us, and make actual personal connections?

Personal Experience

I know one that has happened to me, personally, was 3 years ago, while sitting in the DMV, with about 15 other people. I AM NOT LYING when I say that EVERY SINGLE PERSON was on their phone. It honestly felt like I was sitting in a movie and slowly coming to the realization about what a hold the media has on us. It was eerie. And it reminds me of this very profound saying:

“We have never been more connected; yet never so alone.”

Now this alone doesn’t mean we’re addicted, necessarily. Right?

You’re right. But some of these other examples are a somber look into this very real dilemma:

This site: asks some very important questions to evaluate one’s use of social media:

    • Do you spend a lot of time thinking about social media or planning to use social media?
    • Do you feel urges to use social media more and more?
    • Do you use social media to forget about personal problems?
    • Do you often try to reduce your use of social media without success?
    • Do you become restless or troubled if you are unable to use social media?
    • Do you use social media so much that it has had a negative impact on your job or studies?

If you feel as if you are having problems with being addicted to media, social or otherwise, then don’t fret. Thankfully, there are many steps you can take to reduce the pull that technology has on us. From the same site, they list several ways you can come to terms with this addiction: “Top Tips for a Digital Detox: 12 ways to help you cut down on your technology use

Here are a couple of very nice reads into a self-reflected awareness of their social media addiction, and their efforts to curtail it:

Social Media Addiction: A Personal Story – Erin C.
How Social Media Is Affecting Our Focus – Jamie Eiland

Interestingly, The Social Dilemma (Netflix film which came out just a month ago) covers this topic, which features several people that have worked (or still work) at big tech industries, such as Facebook, Google, Youtube, Pinterest, Tumbler, as well as others. Even they, the creators and designers of some of these addictive programs, are against their own creations; urging the viewer to reduce their screen time and realize that there are many ways that we are being manipulated. Many even confess that they refuse to let their children on to social media; at least until they reach an acceptable age.

Be Aware

I have to add a precaution to this film; there are many aspects to it that I agree with, however, there are also a few to me, that I view as a red flag. Namely that of when they mention “conspiracy theories” – again, casting it in an unflattering light – a very common tactic of manipulation, and a couple of situations pertaining to this. Please be very discerning about these kinds of topics. The film itself mentions fake news and how easy it is to fall for something that’s not necessarily true, thanks to all the deception and lies that are deliberately enforced to push a certain agenda/propaganda, yet seem to turn around and do the same thing. Attempting to “debunk” certain topics. Again, I ask that you be aware of any ways that you may be coerced or manipulated into believing a certain narrative.

Other than that unfortunate addition to the film, it did seem to touch on a lot of subjects that are a very real problem in our social media age. And it does raise an important subject to be discerning, because certainly, not every “conspiracy theory” is true, but there are alarmingly many that have been proven to be true.

25 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to be True – (Another sad fascinating fact, 23 out of 25 of these “theories” involve the government (most from the US)).

Where Does the Time Go? (and the moral ethics?)

Perhaps some people still don’t think an addiction to media is that bad. Or maybe people are just making it a big deal.

Well….. take a gander at the link below (or not… it is a harsh and cruel reality check into some of the atrocities going on around us) and tell me if people are just blowing this out of proportion. These are tragic and horrific accounts of people choosing video games/media over real life people (including themselves):

15 Bizarre Deaths Caused by Video Some devastating accounts due to media addiction from this site (visit the link for a full list):

  • “In 2010, a South Korean couple ended up spending so much time raising their digital baby, in turn neglecting their real life baby, who ended up dying of prolonged malnutrition.”
  • “In 2007, a Chinese man engaged in an unknown online video game for three consecutive days at an internet café.” … “fixated on the computer for 72 hours straight, the man finally dropped dead out of exhaustion.”
  • “17 year old, Daniel Petric, shot his parents because they wouldn’t let him play Halo 3. He allegedly shot both of them in the head, instantly killing his mother. His father survived. –
  • “October 2010, Alexandra Tobias was playing Farmville … and she got so addicted that she apparently forgot that she had a three-year-old son. Her attention was taken back to reality when her son cried out of hunger, and instead of feeding her child, she responded by shaking him to death…”
  • “In the fall of 2007, according to his mother, Shawn Woolley killed himself as result of a lack of socialization and detachment from reality caused by endless hours of playing EverQuest.”

This site mentions 3 video gamers that regret their decision to allow video games to pull them into their addictive grip:
Video Games Ruined My Life: 3 Gaming Addiction Stories –

There are many more events attributed to video games, especially, but also media in general. And as you may have noticed, the articles I’m making on this topic don’t just mention “social” media, but “media” as a whole. That can range from anything as social, internet use, television, movies, video games, etc.

How many times have you caught yourself on a binge-watching marathon? Or scrolling through the internet/on facebook/youtube? How many times do you check your phone for notifications, text messages, emails, forum posts?

While all of these aren’t necessarily bad things, per se, the habitual time sink it proposes definitely is. Which is why it’s important to be aware of how much time we really are spending on these different platforms. I find myself occasionally going on binge-watches, spending way too much time on youtube (although admittedly a lot of times I’m on there for research) and checking email for communication.

The important thing is moderation. Once we’re aware of how much time we’re losing to these different arenas, the better chance we have to come back from that and consciously choose to spend time more efficiently, and essentially.

Sadly, sometimes these addictions to different media platforms disable us from focusing on real life situations: work, school, relationships, raising our own kids… As we saw with some examples above, the decision that some people have taken to choose technology over other people, is a scary and serious look into the hold that media can have over us.

Porn and Gambling Online

We’ve already covered some topics detailing the horrible situations that have erupted due to media addictions. But we haven’t even covered media addictions in conjunction with other addictions, such as porn, gambling, and shopping. (Yes, shopping.)

In this day and age, with everything so readily available to us through the internet, the instant gratification mode that many people have is more prevalent than ever. And that’s not a good thing.

Instead of us appreciating what we already have, the constant push of “more and better” things that the internet poses to us keeps us in a state of always wanting more. Many are unhappy with what they already have and instead are continually searching for ways, in their mind, to improve their quality of life. Not realizing that material items are not going to make them happy, but being there for their loved ones (and friends and strangers), will.

What kind of satisfaction do we get when we watch porn, or gamble, or buy material things? A temporary one, if that. And more often than that, if one has moral decency, guilt and shame as well.

So not only do we have the issue of spending money (and/or time) on temporary gratifications, we also have to deal with the remorse that comes after that. Now with everything, moderation is key. I’m not here to condemn anyone who chooses to do these hobbies. Although some I do feel could be eroding our conscious (and conscience) and creating a negative cycle that’s hard to get out of. But if you do feel guilt and shame, then it may be a sign to start pursuing something else.

Some helpful links that dig a little deeper into this dilemma:

So why are these hobbies so damaging to our lifestyle? Well, they’ve been known to cause, in some people: divorce, financial problems, child neglect, and crimes (sometimes even all of the above). I guess one can come to the conclusion that just about anything could result in these sad situations, and while that may be true, the focus is on this topic to show the damages it can create.

Social Anxiety / Depression

The culmination of all this evidence into media addictions has boiled down to one interesting connection: higher rate of anxiety and depression.

In every single subject covered in this series, people have experienced an increase in depression, anxiety, relationship strains, and in some tragic cases, even suicide. This has been especially true in today’s children and young teens/adults – in which media/technology started becoming a prominent part of society.

Excerpts are shown detailing just some of the psychological difficulties that have arisen due to media addictions from a few of the topics covered above:

  • “They explained BSD (buying-shopping disorder), and particularly the online form, can cause a loop of extreme cravings for buying things and satisfaction when spending money. This can then lead to a breakdown in self-control, ‘extreme distress’, other psychiatric problems, relationship difficulties and physical clutter and debt.” –

  • “Research has shown that there is an undeniable link between social media use, negative mental health, and low self-esteem. While social media platforms have their benefits, using them too frequently can make people feel increasingly unhappy and isolated. These negative emotional reactions are not only produced due to the social pressure of sharing things with others, but also the comparison of material things and lifestyles that these sites promote.” –

  • “Research shows that 97% of Americans 12 to 17 years old play video games, and as many as 23% of gamers of all ages show signs of addictive behavior. According to the WHO, these signs include impaired control over gaming and “continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.” And these repercussions can be seen in a person’s personal relationships, career, schoolwork, or daily life. Gaming disorder also puts people at greater risk for other detrimental issues, including:

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • ADD/ADHD
    • Sleep disturbances
    • Irritability
    • Bad moods
    • Fatigue
    • Fearfulness
    • Suicidal thoughts

Recognize When to Seek Help

Unfortunately, because media plays such a huge part in today’s societal norms, (case in point – my 7 year old son had to get a gmail account for school… I, personally, was not too happy with that idea), the delicate issue of people’s personal habits is something that has been ignored for far too long.

Ultimately, this should be a collaborative effort between the tech industries and the adults in charge of themselves, and especially their children, to monitor these kinds of behaviors and work towards a common solution to educate ourselves of these addictive dangers, and become consciously aware of our choices and the decisions we make. Because we can’t rely on the tech industries (after all, it has been admitted that their job was to create these programs to be as addictive as possible), then it is up to us, individually, to make the right choice and break away from this harmful lifestyle.

If you feel as if you are suffering from anxiety, depression, frustration, anger, suicidal thoughts, or anything of the like, please seek help. There are numerous support groups and phone lines that can help assist you in addressing these issues.

The FOMO (fear of missing out), “dopamine hits”, social interactions (whether it’s positive or negative), etc. can all contribute to an addictive behavior of the media. Once we can recognize it and address these factors in our lives, the better self-aware we can be and more thoughtful in our actions – leading to a healing and recovery of our mind, body, and soul; and, equally as important, our relationships.

Social media = social distancing? (no, not the coronavirus “social distancing”)

If we keep allowing the media to rule our lives, the possible end result is actually quite terrifying; a literal unplugging us from life and reality, and plugging us into a virtual reality that separates us from each other more than ever before.

With the ever-looming advent of powerful AI, is our future heading towards some kind of technological dystopia? We may laugh, now, at the “silly” prospect of having a real life “Terminator” or “Matrix” on our hands, but with the terrifying onslaught into the Internet of Things, microchipping, virtual reality agenda, it is honestly a serious proposal we must consider.

Are we okay relying even more heavily into all these tecnological advances? Or will we finally realize that a return to nature (in it’s pure, uncorrupted form), is the best way for society to move forward?

In part 4, I discuss the media experiments that have taken place; starring “us”, the unwitting user. In part 5, I cover the issue of data mining our information (and our minds).

Stay tuned. (no pun intended)

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
