The Rally to Restore Sanity – On Suggestation or Sugar Station

26 11 2010

This was the first blog we know of that began to explore the power of suggestion in a light-hearted way, and the first called, “Suggestation.”

Here at Suggestation, or Sugar Station (because every suggestion has its sugar) we have been on an ongoing – more or less off and on – Quest to find suggestions and ways that the power of suggestion can affect us. It is rare that we see someone else doing this, and when we see someone else doing this, we like to give a shout out!

Suggestation does not subscribe to or encourage any political party, any religion or creed, etc. for the power of suggestion cuts across all national boundaries.  It is human nature to be suggestible, we propose.  So why not take a moment to discover what is being suggested to us, 24/7?  Nor is this site promoted on FaceBook or anywhere else.  It started as a way to post links that I thought were somewhat interesting so I wouldn’t lose them on my computer.  Not a very grand beginning.

I’m just so tickled to give a shout out to John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and friends for coming up with the suggestion to stage a rally about … suggestion.

Thankfully, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and others have caught on to the power of suggestion.  This was demonstrated big time in The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear held on the Mall in DC in 2010.  It can possibly lead to a “tipping point” where we can begin to begin to see how influenced we are by the constant alarms from the general media, while very serious problems in the country remain ignored.

Case in point. John Stewart’s speech at the end of the Rally, or at least, a portion of it.

Whatever one’s politics, Right or Left, or personal beliefs, East or West, one thing that unites us all is …(fill in the blank?)

Now, is that a suggestion or a suggestation?

Thank you for spending a moment here.

Signed,

Suggestation
