BFP Roundtable: Apathy and Cognitive Dissonance


These were posted on my Facebook about a week ago...

I share similarities with Sibel Edmonds as she contemplates why people are apathetic or non-participatory. Is it just convenience?

My story, just like Sibel's, is of curiosity, experimentation, observation, understanding, and the pursuit of the truth. I guess you are born with curiosity or you're not.

James Corbett of the Corbett Report, Sibel Edmonds of the BoilingFrogsPost, and Guillermo Jimenez ask why are people the way they are?

This next video gets into the phenomenon of experiencing pain and the resulting belligerence when running into truths that are counter to one's belief bubbles. This is called cognitive dissonance.
