Scholarly Saturday – Video Series

truth videos

Truth. We all want to be told the truth, and we all teach our children to be truthful. But truth in these times is difficult to come by. As this is an ‘educational’ based blog, it gives me the chance to approach an array of different topics freely. As I’m also not a ‘journalist’ and therefore not on anybodies pay-books, I’m not restricted in the content I publish. The topics that will be presented to you, will be something you may never have come across previously. It could be said, that so much of the world around us is an illusion, artificially created for a particular purpose. A purpose which may not be in our best interests… 

Every Saturday I’m going to release an important video which will test your critical thinking skills and your very outlook on life. I’ll be calling these series of posts ‘Scholarly Saturday’. It will be controversial in nature and inspire deep reflection and discussion with those around you. I don’t necessarily condone all the content in the following videos, rather they are source to invoke a different kind of thinking. I’m not the creator of the video content, just the curator. It’s difficult to think of a genre for these videos, as they are so diverse and cover just about every facet of the world. The content is aimed for an older audience, not children, so the videos will be rated as ‘R’.

I’d like to finish this introduction with a quote from Arthur Schopenhauer, ‘All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident’. Bear this quote in mind as you witness the story that unfolds in front of you. Remember, realise the real-lies. We’ll start with Part 1 and Part 2 in this post.

When you’re in a quiet place and in a calm state of mind you may begin to watch.


Part One


Part 2


*I’m not the creator or the above video content, it is in the public domain and free to share.
