Time to counter our bad-news-culture, time to stop parroting the negative mainstream.
Tired of all the bad-news you are spoon fed by the mass-media? Tired of "journalism" zooming in on everything ugly, atrocious and evil while
ignoring all parts of the world that are good, healthy, inspiring?
So you come to all these "alternative" websites and find much of the same...people defining "news" as anything bad or scandalous and looking for
whatever is wrong.
The purpose? To keep people in fear and hate, away from strength, goodness and beauty.
This thread is for everyone who wants to balance all the negativity with good news. For anybody who wants to read good news. For anybody who wants to
post good news. For anybody who wants to spread good news.
Bad news is defined as off-topic and can be posted to the many other forums here. Cynics may also post elsewhere.
This thread is about good news only...from every part of life or part of the globe. To provide a real alternative
to the negative brainwashing
and dumbing down of our world by the mass-media.
I will start out with a few examples of good news and find the time to add to this thread as time goes by. Looking forward to your additions (Please
try to add mainly current
Some examples of good news:
North Korea shuts down its main nuclear
U.S. Cancer Death Rates continue to Fall
Examples of Good News Today:
Senate Legistlation protects consumers from discrimantion based on
Brazil to bring safety and dignity to slums
Student "twitters" his way out of egyptian jail
So lets strengthen this world by honouring its heroes and the good guys instead of giving the bad guys all the media-attention.
