About

To be honest, I’m a whole bunch of things, but mostly I’m an individual who seeks for truth in a world that has become a caricature of honesty. With so much information at our fingertips, the line between truth and conjecture has been blurred. I created this blog to offer ideas and thoughts that assist people in truth seeking. Often, what we find might challenge our personal sensibilities, but nevertheless give us a torch to pave through the darkness of information obscurity.

Could this blog be a collection of hate filled rhetoric towards families with the last name Jones? Or could it be a blog spun off from the term “Keeping up with the Joneses“, that aims to help clear the air on data smog and destroy the roots of misinformation. I’m proud to say it is the latter instead of the former. I’m sure many of us are familiar with the phrase “KUWTJ”, but for those who aren’t, the term is related to those individuals, families or groups who by “conspicuous consumption”, choose to define themselves through their material possessions that is deemed acceptable (at least in their minds) by the general society. (inside or outside ones peer group)

In today’s society, there is a war going on between what is real and the reality that is created, masquerading around as a reality that’s related to the truths of this world. In my view, today’s “Joneses” are a disconnected group of individuals who the general public has diligently tried to imitate (intentional or unintentional) along social and political lines. The entertainment, fashion, and selective media organizations are all partly responsible for creating this idolatrous, almost cult-like movement for these groups. The obsession does not have to be related to an actual human-being. The obsession can be related to food, political parties, religious movements, social groups, social status, tribalism, material wealth, dysfunctional behavior, anti-intelligence, racism, music, xenophobia, and narcissism. Obviously there are other obsessions, but I find the above list the most significant. In some instances you can have someone or a group that has honest and true intentions, but the “Joneses” will exploit these groups for their own needs.

At some point in time, we have all played a part in being a “Joneser or Jonesee”. The goal of this blog is to attempt at offering a honest and out the box critique on many of the things that we have deemed “normal”, and may in fact be dysfunctional or worthy of change. If we continue to do the same things and expect different results, clearly someone is Jonesing us, or we are the Joneses or we just don’t have enough information to make an educated decision. I think it’s time we take a fresh look at everything we do on a day-to-day basis.
