Unplug and stop being reactive
Capitalism or socialism, it does not matter. The system needs to control masses. It needs masses that are tuned in into a reactive mode so they can sell you more shit. And boy they have cracked our code. Not by some grand conspiracy theory but by simple trial and error over years of trying. And everybody is copying what works. They just need to tap into our prehistoricOS traits (ego) such as herd mentality, status, our fears and anxieties. Bang! Now the masses behaviour is predictable as long as they are plugged. They dont want you to have an opinion, they just need you to stay reactive. Because reactive means, the driver is not you, but your ego traits and you dont even know it. Thats key! That’s why all the social media shit works. What is the way out of it? Don’t get in your reactive mode the moment you wake up by reading news, emails, messages, likes, content or any other shit. Don’t consume all the time. Simply plan routines in your day to stay unplugged. Start for exmaple by taking a regular walk and for god sake, leave your phone and headphones home for once. Just be, unplug. Build more routines like that. Your non-reactive self (soul) will help you ;-).
