S.M.A.R.T. and S.T.U.P.I.D: Teaching My Child HOW to Think - Part 4

Updated: Oct 5, 2020

S = Snap

T = Total

U = Unquestioned

P = Passive

I = Ideologically Filtered

D = Dogmatic

Sign #3 of S.T.U.P.I.D. Thinking

U = Unquestioned Judgments

The third sign that alerts me to my own S.T.U.P.I.D. thinking is when my judgments are unquestioned.

Snap judgments.

Total judgments.

Unquestioned judgments.

Most non-thinking people are just plain gullible. They believe most everything they hear. They never question any messenger of new information. They never question whether the new information is real or fake. Whether it is true or false. Or whether it is a mixture of truth and falsehood.

To survive in this world, you should question everything. To survive in this world, you need to know HOW to think.

You must drill any messenger of new information with a myriad of questions.

· Who are you?

· Why should I believe you?

· Where did you get your information?

· Why should I believe your source(s)?

· What is your worldview?

· What team or tribe are you rooting for?

· What do you want to be true?

· What are your biases?

· What is your motive?

· What is your agenda?

· Are you more loyal to tribe or to truth?

· Do you really know these things to be true?

· Or do you only believe these things to be true?

· Why do people disagree with what you are saying?

· Do critics of your information raise valid points?

· Have you ever been wrong?

Most of humanity just receives information without question. Because they believe they are receiving this information from an "authority" who is smarter or more informed than they are. Someone who has credentials, so we just assume their information must be credible and true.

Yet, most people never take the time to ask IF the information IS true. Nor do we question HOW the information is being organized to manipulate the listener.

Always ask questions.

I remember a time when I was in ministry and someone passed on some juicy gossip to me. “Did you hear that Pastor so and so is divorced?” The person saying this did so in a very critical and condescending way. He was the judge. The person he was gossiping about was the judged.

I remember being very troubled by this new information. As a result, I personally called the church of this pastor and found out that the rumor was completely bogus. I was able to pass on this information to the original messenger of the gossip.

If you want the truth, ask questions. A lot of them.

2020 is a time when ALL OF US should be asking questions INCESSANTLY. The world is completely crazy with COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, Black Lives Matter clashes in major cities, and the upcoming Presidential election.

The press, powerful tech companies, pollsters, politicians, professors, and popular cultural icons with a "platform" are all feverishly working overtime to indoctrinate the masses with WHAT they are to think, believe, and feel. Dominators are conditioning humanity to ask less questions instead of more.

As humanity drinks in this relentless, 24/7 "Here's what you must think, believe, and feel" propaganda, how many people have enough discipline and self-respect to actually push back and think for themselves?

Very few.

Most people are S.T.U.P.I.D. in their thinking. They listen to all of the propaganda poured into them through the media and other outlets and just agree and obey. They don't question anything.

The vast majority of the populace simply make snap, total, and unquestioned judgments concerning everything they see and hear.

When we ALL should be skeptically questioning EVERYTHING.

Take just one aspect of the whole COVID-19 narrative. That being COVID-19 testing.

We should ALL be asking questions exhaustively about this most basic element of this alleged pandemic - the test for COVID-19.

· What are these PCR tests?

· Is it true that PCR tests should NOT be used for diagnosing infectious diseases? (But instead should only be used for research purposes.)

· BTW, didn’t PCR test inventor Kary Mullis have strong doubts that HIV is the cause of AIDS? What did his questioning of that mainstream narrative expose? And in the last two minutes of the linked video, what is his opinion of the brilliance and expertise of those at the top of the scientific dominance hierarchies? Can these opinions also be applied to the W.H.O., the C.D.C., Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx, etc.?

· Does the PCR test SPECIFICALLY isolate and identify COVID-19?

· If not, then how can we ever really know how many cases there are?

· If not, then how can we know how many have truly died from it?

· If not, then isn’t ALL the data fraudulent?

· Why are there false positives?

· Why are there so many asymptomatic cases?

· Why are doctors with opinions contrary to the mainstream media narrative being censored, silenced, or at the very least, sabotaged and slandered by Google in search results?

And it may not be hyperbole to say that 50 more similar questions could be asked.

Growing up, I frequently heard this cliché, “Don’t believe everything you hear.”

It would be closer to the truth to say, “Don’t believe anything you hear.”

Question everything.


Because dominators are indoctrinators. They can only gain and maintain power by force-feeding us WHAT to think. To maintain power, they must demonize anyone who knows HOW to think. Anyone who knows how to ask questions.

Never forget: you don't need ANY qualifications or credentials to ask questions.

Make any "authority figure" or messenger of new information prove their claims. Keep peeling back the layers of their knowledge by continually asking "How do you know that's true?"

And with EACH answer they give, ask it AGAIN. "And how do you know that's true?"..."And how do you know that's true?"..."And how do you know that's true?"..."And...."

Ask questions until the "know-it-ALL" is exposed for the "know-very-little" frauds they truly are (we all are).

ALL OF US are qualified to ask questions exhaustively. Regardless of age. Regardless of education. Regardless of social status. Regardless of our positions on the dominance hierarchies of this world. Never let a dominator take away your right to ask questions.

I'll say it again, ALL OF US are qualified to ask questions exhaustively.

My wonderful 5 year old son, Max, illustrates this perfectly.

I am not the most educated person on the planet, but I have some schooling. I have a bachelors and two completed master's degrees. I have completed over 100 hours of post-graduate work.

But my 5 year old isn't in awe of how "advanced" I am above his kindergarten level education.

It seems like every week of my life, Max routinely asks me questions which leave me with a "duh" look on my face and weak attempts to save face with a sheepish "Well, that's a good question," response.

How dare Max! He's only five, who does he think he is? He's ignorant. He has no educational accolades. He has no credentials. He hasn't logged any hours in a lab. He hasn't written in peer reviewed journals. He's not qualified to ask such questions!

Says who?

Even at 5, Max already knows how to expose the ignorance of his authority. At 5, he already knows how to ask profound and practical questions that challenge the honesty and humility of "older, wiser" people. Those PRETENDING to know crap that they really don't KNOW.

Like in the "Emperors New Clothes," it is the honesty of a small child that destroys the lies of power-hungry deceivers and dominators which control the public opinion of the fearful, unquestioning masses.

Question everything. Investigate everything. Exhaustively.

The fourth sign of S.T.U.P.I.D. thinking.

P = Passive judgments.
