The Turnoff TV folks are calling out for an unplugged week. If you missed the April version, there's another chance next September. These guys are working hard to create awareness of the infamous impact of television on collective minds.
George told me in his last class that TV loves to broadcast and overstress bad news (as some scientific studies show) for people under fear are more easily controlled and shop more. This hypotheses sounds interesting and I would add that mass media not only recreates reality as it filters what is news. The few minds behind the global theater don't unveil their intentions but manage to control the collective minds. Even though these lines might be an oversimplification of this very controversial issue, the facts can't be ignored. Yep.
Turn off your box.
