Factfulness

Post11 Apr 2018

Forget the mushy, undefine, malleableness of "mindfulness" - never mind the demented, cartoon book brainwash the Brahma Kumaris call "The Knowledge™" - what the world needs now is "factfulness". A fact-based world view.

'Factfulness' is a term perhaps invented by statistician Hans Rosling in his book, 'Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You Think' (2018).

His work - based on statistical research rather than Godly revelations - indentifies 10 patterns behind misunderstandings as; The Gap Instinct, The Negativity Instinct, The Straight Line Instinct, The Fear Instinct, The Size Instinct, The Generalization Instinct, The Destiny Instinct, The Single Perspective Instinct, The Blame Instinct and The Urgency Instinct, that lead to an over dramatic world view that believes in a much worse state of the world leading to terrible decisions and tonnes of distress. So many people getting so many things wrong.

"Join the Factfulness Movement ... it's an easier way of living", he said.

The short version is ... despite the God of the Brahma Kumaris prediction that the world was going to be destroyed in 2000, 1996, 1986, 1976, 1950, and WWII and his followers' persistent death wish for humanity ... things are actually better than we realise.
