How Some People Think The Way They Do - A Repost and It's Worth Reading....

Is everyone who lives in Ignorance like you?" asked Milo.
"Much worse," he said longingly. "But I don't live here. I'm from a place very far away called Context.

Many of us like to believe that our opinions have been formed over time by careful, rational consideration of facts and ideas, and that the decisions based on those opinions, therefore, have the ring of soundness and intelligence.

In the real world, we often base our opinions on our beliefs, which can have an uneasy relationship with facts. And rather than facts driving beliefs, our beliefs can dictate the facts we chose to accept. They can cause us to twist facts so they fit better with our preconceived notions. Worst of all, they can lead us to uncritically accept bad information just because it reinforces our beliefs. This reinforcement makes us more confident we’re right, and even less likely to listen to any new information. This effect is only heightened by the information glut, which offers — alongside an unprecedented amount of good information — endless rumors, misinformation, and questionable variations on the truth.

In other words, it’s never been easier for people to be wrong, and at the same time feel more certain that they’re right. The “I know I’m right” syndrome, is a potentially formidable problem in a democratic system. It suggests not only that most people will resist correcting their factual beliefs, but also that the very people who most need to correct them will be least likely to do so. Analysts have termed this as “motivated reasoning.”

Whether or not the consistent information is accurate, we might accept it as fact, as confirmation of our beliefs. This makes us more confident in said beliefs, and even less likely to entertain facts that contradict them.

JANE AND WOFF LEADERSHIP fit into this context, among others.

SC Pastor Turns Bible School into Labor Camp: How Come WOFF Gets Away With This?

Here's the story

WW has added different sources so that you can see that MORE than one media source covered this story.

The Labor Issue has long been a concern that WOFF has recruited foreign students and turned it into "free labor" for whatever project the church or church related interest requires.

This is what I have been telling WOFF'ers and former WOFF'ers who read this blog.

This story should serve as an example that it's ok to tell someone your civil rights have been violated or that a crime has been committed. It served the people in SC with results and so it should in Spindale.

Get moving people. Homeland Security is waiting to hear from victims and families.

Now, about NEWS coverage......

THREE organizations picked up the story about the SC Pastor.

WW is astounded at how local media (other than the RC Catalyst) passed on covering the Saturday 5/24/14 forum where information about mind control and testimonies from Word of Faith Fellowship (WOFF) survivors were discussed.

RC Catalyst's coverage of this event no doubt got enough eyeballs from local media and WOFF to at least have an assignment desk editor or even News Director to keep an eye on the story, if at a distance, for future developments. Media always monitors other media, no matter the size of the publication or TV market.

It will take a one on one with News Directors, not the assignment desk people, to get them to understand the severity of the activities of WOFF. Saturday's meeting, although dealing with the utmost serious issues, is unfortunately only one of the many items to which WOFF has to account.

Although assignment desk people dole out the story to the reporter, they are quick to shoot down anything that requires more than a reporter's shift to cover. They want quick, sexy, in your face, practically instant news or news that writes itself. In some ways, this is because of time constraints but mostly because they are lazy and in some cases, morons. This is not an opinion, this is a fact. This is not confined to smaller market stations or newspapers. Every media has it's stars and set of morons. It just depends on the proportion. In some cases, the reporter's skill may not be up to the story. It is WW's considered opinion that Channel 13's people do not have the onions to take on a story of this size. They DID have a guy that might have broken this story, but he went to Seattle.  There are people in Charlotte, Atlanta and Spartanburg that DO have the onions to get this story on the air.

News Directors deal with the whole operation much as the manager of any business. However, they DO make the final decision on a story or even assign stories, so it's not entirely up to the Assignment Desk People. Reporters DO also suggest stories but ALMOST ALWAYS get shot down in their 9:30a or 2pm meetings.

WW would be fascinated as to the reasoning these media outlets passed on this event.

The RC Catalyst story of the forum is possibly one of the biggest stories they have covered in the publication's relatively young life. They probably are just realizing it now if not already. This is a HUGE story that is just unraveling.

My reasoning is that MORE meetings are inevitable. MORE people will come out. MORE WOFF'ers will attend and no doubt try to inject their say whether to espouse denial or heave a load of drama or even to incite a confrontation. WW is absolutely certain that WOFF is looking for ways to infiltrate, disrupt and cease further forums or gatherings. But ANY involvement will be their own undoing.

It is prudent and brilliant to have the proceedings documented by video. This will show the world the indescribable pain caused by WOFF and Jane. And, it will also accurately show WOFF'S behavior in public if things get out of hand.

This organized, responsible, and mostly humane method of confronting the damage done by mind control and it's ancillary elements is at least certain genius, if not more, unstoppable.

For once, a small organized, certain to grow, group of people, are peacefully and responsibly addressing the damage caused by the WOFF system.

It can be viewed as the beginning of the end of WOFF and Jane's influence as we know it. But no one can argue there is more work ahead.

Woffwatcher will continue to be diligent in participating alongside those who seek justice and end this madness.
