Turning the TV OFF
Since I came home from the hospital in December, I’ve really cut back on the amount of TV that I watch. It wasn’t a deliberate decision, at least it wasn’t a decision I consciously made, but I’m glad it has happened.
TV is an opiate of the masses, just like religion. Watching the news is completely unbearable. Opinions have replaced facts. Stupidity has replaced Truth. I was never a fan of the media before, but now I have zero interest in watching them. I can READ to learn about what is going on in the world.
I still watch some sports, and the occasional Tern Titans Go! every now and then, but that about sums up my viewing.
I feel better overall without TV. I find myself spending more time writing and reading and listening to music, all of which give me more pleasure than TV. I can’t imagine a scenario where I would knowingly agree to just watch more TV again. Peace of mind is too valuable.
