"I'm OK with you sharing your beliefs
A major component of Trump's strategy is to disparage the "mainstream media" as "fake news." Every time he says, "Believe me," you know he's lying. His adoring, conspiracy-writing supporters believe he's going to fix everything. Those supporters—who are driven by mistrust of government & corporations—are actually helping to further corrupt the corporate world and our federal government.
The conspiracies that support his harmful actions (e.g. his eradication of environmental regulations allegedly stopped "slush funds for murder & child trafficking") typically spawned from agents planted by the corporations or extremely [politically] conservative "experts" who will say anything (e.g. global warming is a hoax) to discredit Democrats.
The hilarious irony about the whole "fake news" claims phenomenon is that millions are flocking to follow those who question the legitimacy of respectable news organizations. Very few members of that flock stop to question the "questioners." If you look carefully at the information on the Internet, you'll find very little if any fact-checking of the claims made by the conspiracists.
Through this crafty manipulation using the Internet, many of the conspiracy theorists are unknowingly supporting the very causes they think they're fighting! Their conspiracy theories that "justify" all the damage he's causing are ultimately fed to him by donors from oil/gas and other corporations, and he's dumb enough to believe them. The conspiracy theories are so well-traveled on the Internet that even "progressive thinkers" who would normally think of themselves as Democrats are ultimately believing the false stories and supporting this mentally unfit autocrat. How clever is that?!
This approach gets a free ride on a slipstream of millions of people abandoning valid news sources for random storytellers, abandoning [albeit inane & outdated religions for convincing videos of live "channelers" to bring you the latest from Jesus, leprechauns, and little men in brown robes. These modern replacements can update their stories thatt people want to hear (and will pay for through regular subscription fees). From the Internet, the modern lemming can choos a new cult/religion/spiritual journey or support an alleged "take down" of the big, bad government controlled by the so-called cabal.
Reality and pure fiction (stories) weren't exciting enough, so we created reality TV, which tries to make you believe the fake (story) is real. The real news is "fake," so we make up our own news from the comfort of our own homes, amplifying the messages from others doing the same thing. Whether it's on social media or other platforms on the Internet (e.g. a YouTube channel), it's much more exciting and satisfying to immerse ourselves in that alternate reality.
We are witnessing the birth of many new Internet cults (the most famous contemporary one is known as QAnon) that "stick it to the man" by creating false narratives that resonate with millions of people looking for a "new path" that can only be brought to them by poorly "substantiated" articles & videos from random, unverified sources. Religions & cults are never deterred by facts or unfulfilled prophecies.
Any time you see the phrase,"Mainstream media (MSM) is not reporting this," there's a good chance you're starting down the logically-flawed path of one of these countless cults propagating their exciting, secret news. Be prepared to watch them connect the wrong dots and cite flawed or completely unsubstantiated "secret facts." There's a damn good reason the news organizations aren't reporting on it: It is BS.
The thought that some cabal is controlling all of the media can only be believed by someone who doesn't understand how scattered and uncontrollable modern media outlets are. So, you think we have a lot of cable channels? We have more than that in terms of "news" outlets. Everybody likes a secret, right? If there were secrets that the mainstream media wasn't reporting on and people should know, any one of the thousands of smaller news outlets would scoop those up to try to attract eyeballs to help make a living. Some of the misguided ones will team up with others who are on the same path to validate and amplify the "news you've never heard." Watch them quote and interview each other to try to give their special conspiracy secrets extra credence.
Sometimes modern charlatans & snake oil sales merchants actually sell oil 🤦 in the process! Credulous followers will believe a woman they found on the Internet has received messages from omniscient elves in brown robes—or is channeling the voice of Jesus or Albert Einstein in real time—before they'll believe a carefully-researched report written by honest, well-grounded scientists or reporters delivering news that has been verified by multiple, credible third-parties. Why? Because they're all out to "fool" and "control" you!

FUD is an old marketing tool I used for years to promote high-tech products, leading prospective customers to mistrust any competitor's product, making our product the "safe" choice. Nowadays, FUD is used to peddle everything from new spiritual paths to bad presidents.
Despite widespread use of the FUD factor to sell products, spread conspiracies and promote lies, the truth remains immovable and steadfast, no matter how it makes you feel. No matter what you believe, there is only one truth: ACTUALITY...the one body of real things, real events, and real facts. You may believe that your beliefs or "faith" change reality. If so, please seek professional psychiatric help.
Fear, mistrust, ignorance, a lack of critical thinking, a lack of skills (or incentive) needed to verify false claims, and an appealing message are all joining together to help the flock steer it's "gut feeling" or "heart" further and further away from reality. Scoffing at the truth, they prefer their reality over the one we all actually live in, telling you that not everything is what it seems.
That may be true. Not everything is what it seems. But you know what? I'm not going to try to escape the scraps of reality that are pretty well verified just to make myself feel better.
Are we screwed? So many people are so lost already. I've lost more than one person (near and dear to me) to "beliefs" founded on utter nonsense, and I know—from personal experience—that you can't use reason to "convince" anyone out of an argument that they didn't use reason to get into. I hope that most of humanity can avoid this easily-set psychological trap facilitated by the "new media's" means of indoctrination in "alternate facts."
There is no greater crime in the cosmos than to deliberately indoctrinate young, trusting minds with false teachings for selfish ends.
Speaking of selfish ends...I'm still looking for one of these enlightened, altruistic, "new age" Internet spiritual cult leaders who isn't doing it for personal $$ gains. Let me know if you find one and I'll give them a listen. I won't hold my breath waiting, because I know it's all the same old, same old recycled cults and religious beliefs—no matter what YOU call it—only now with convenient new Internet accouterments that make it easier to spread the "good word" at the speed of light.
Congratulations, you got the part!

“To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” — Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel, La Jolla homeboy)
How shall we care for this amazing vessel that affords us life and comfort? Shall we fill the oceans with plastic? Shall we shower it with nuclear radiation? Shall we pump CO₂ and poisonous NO₂ into the air until it resembles the uninhabitable planets we're so anxious to explore? Let's not.
Regardless of our significance—or lack thereof—we must do our best to make our situation better for those around us and those who will follow in our footsteps. And it wouldn't hurt to take better care of our planet so our great grandchildren can enjoy a habitable outdoor environment.
There comes a time in your life when you just walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living. Every day is a blessing. Be thankful for the miracle of life for the short time you have to experience it. While you soar through space in this amazing place, take a deep breath. let go of your anxiety, and be perfectly still, loving & serene. That's something you can do for this world.
Are you now ready to spread peace, love & happiness?

Billions of people are comforted by religion in a world torn by religion.
Love and humanism are my religions. My god (my morning coffee & the opportunity to live another day, cognizant of the connections between us) helps me find more joy, serenity, and meaning in our universe than any story you can tell me about your invisible friend ever will. Based on what I learned growing up as a Catholic, the Catholic God is a misogynistic, inattentive, neglectful parent. His children are enablers when they claim he "works in mysterious ways" while he lets millions of young children suffer, starve & die. No offense. I'm just sharing my beliefs without trying to force them on you or make them integral to our government.
Just remember the golden rule & leave a positive emotional footprint.
