Thank you for the post...and more, thank you for the action.
Agreed...tv is a brainwashing mechanism, so can be 'some' mainstream music, especially movies, as with any audio/visual medium of information.
It is also be an educational outlet if used properly, yet the majority of productions are coordinated by a few major corporations with vested
interests which are unaligned with public welfare, or rather, the human collective - and thus, to this effect, its washing the brains of many people
of any recognizing their purpose in life!
Ceased viewing the tv a couple years ago - unless with family, for the purpose of sharing presence with them - and have a new sense of life and in a
sense, interact with life more and be alive.
Moved and the new place had a small flat one on the wall covered by a sarong...so we left if there covered like wall art.
Of course, disposing of tv is not necessary to pursue purposeful activities in ones life, it certainly helps reduce distraction because we are far
more interrelated to this planet!
Reducing e.m.f. disturbance in the abode is another reason...yes, electrical devices in general contribute to these, yet reducing is key...and thus
the less contraptions activated, the better. (NO Microwave either!)
Not to say technology is abhorent, rather that our current supressed free energy techonologies are far better alternatives.
It used to make me laugh and wonder when in alternaive shops to see stickers which read "kill your tv"; yet not having one for so long its
Any way, in my opinion, the progamming is not worth viewing and the content has degenerated basically, and thus the object is obsolete to me as a
source of quality information, while internet is available...and when its not - the Earth always awaits our gentle touch!!!
Watch people, watch birds, watch plants...watch anything alive!
