200 Followers, And I Haven't Even Introduced Myself!
Hello Steemit community!
As the title implies, I have reached 200 followers and this is my first blog post! I am not sure why people would follow someone who has been a member of Steemit for over a year (joined August 2016), and hasn't posted anything, but I'm not Complaining! To be honest, I just didn't know where to start my writing.
I have been reading and upvoting other users' content and I have to say that I am really liking the Steemit Community and I look forward to being more active and connecting with people. I first heard about Steemit from [@dollarvigilante](https://steemit.com/@dollarvigilante) through subscribing to his Youtube channel.
So, a little about me I suppose...
My name is Tyler Davis and I hail from good old Idaho, USSA
I had a pretty typical American childhood at least as far as the things I did and the level of brainwashing I received. I was fast on track to become just another propagandized, materialistic zombie who gobbles up whatever BS the government feeds them. Thankfully though, I had a life changing experience my senior year of high school.
Wake the F*** Up!
It was early 2011, and I was in a dark place. I was caught up in the illusions of the material world and I wasn't at all tapping into my capacity for empathy. The truth is, I was capable of causing harm and suffering to many people, and I almost did.
That's when it happened. Some good friends of mine (brothers, really) got locked up. They did something incredibly stupid and completely violated what I would later learn as, The Non-Aggression Principle (NAP).
This threw my world into quite the tizzy. I almost immediately realized I was not on the right path and the world is not at all what we are told. I proceeded to research everything. I became obsessed. I wanted to know the truth, the truth about everything!
And here I am today, still seeking truth!
In order to pay the fee for living on planet Earth, I have worked as a cook. I love cooking for people and seeing how much joy one can experience from a simple meal, but there is much more I know I need to do. I have known for a while that I need to be an activist and do whatever I can to help spread information and empower people but...
That is the tricky part!
There is so much programming that has to be undone. I have been working on it, but I am human like everyone else and I DO succumb to the fear brainwashing and feelings of inadequacy. Even though I know that nonsense should just be tossed aside, it is a process.
How can I empower people if I, myself, am not empowered?
It's real simple: I can't
So that is one of the main things I am consciously working on within myself.
I want to help people with the power of information.
I am currently in the works of setting up a media website. I want to investigate and report what I feel is important information. I would like to be a full time journalist and dedicate myself 100% to the truth. I will be posting here on Steemit, articles on all kinds of topics.
I look forward to learning and growing tremendously in this community. I will be posting personal articles and news-worthy articles of information.
Cheers, and stay tuned!
