I have determined it to be a brainwashing tool, and don't want it in my house anymore. I just couldn't handle it anymore.
I feel much better, even after just 24 hours.
Has anyone else taken the step, to simply remove their TV?
How did your family react?
How do you feel, and are you accomplishing more in your life?

The internet is entirely at YOUR disposal. For now.
For the time being, the CORPORATIONS of the world still cannot interrupt your internet use (at least not in the USA) with their commercials
Most modern humans are hollow, programmed clones. Rarely are they ever more.
Sure- we are a little out of touch and can't participate in the meaningless chatter about soaps and celebrities

Oh well if its on google it must be true, my mistake.
You kind of did a contradiction of your own comment there, you claim you don't believe there is brainwashing then went on to explain how google has proof it exists.
When a kid goes on to become a neurosurgeon, a physicist, invents a cure for an illness or saves a childs life with pioneering new techniques in medicine even though he plays the same 'brainwashing' games, listens to the same 'evil' music and watches the same 'mindwarping' television as some psycho kid who massacres his family why is it that the games aren't put under the microscope then?
I just think this pathetic nonsense about mind control and such is beyond paranoid excuses for stupidity in people. its not some special mind control trick that makes people dumb, they are dumb and watch idiotic tv that has a market in the first place because said dumb people exist.
There's sensible and intelligent television shows out there, if someone chooses to watch big brother then who's fault is that, there would be no mind numbing tv shows if there wasn't a market for it.
Or was everybody like Einstein before the TV came along?
Do scientists. doctors and generally smart and intelligent people not watch TV?
Think about it.
