By the way..
It is totally okay to ignore the media for long stretches of time… Just like everything fear-based and fear stimulating, and other (individual) pathological liars… Though we can hand it to the media: no one can cause this much fear, circulate that many lies, speak to learned helplessness and emotional triggers as they do and get away with it. The media are the masters of messing with people’s brains. And the success that they have had doing what they do – truly astonishing.
It is wise to take breaks from fiction and from psychopaths who are entertained by the power they still wield. If you take off the TV and your gadgets, guess how big their power will be.
